A Unique Florentine View To A Thrill

From an engagement proposal in Strawberry Fields, named after their favourite band, to a Florentine paradise… a love at first sight was finally crystallised in the summer haze of a beautiful June evening… The Bride and Groom are justly proud of their Italian ancestry and couldn’t have imagined celebrating their nuptuals anywhere but astounding Florence.

Thrilling, magical, stupdendous and breathtaking… these are just some of the adjectives which have been used by those who have enjoyed arguably the most stunning panorama of Florence in existence. Unfortunately we have been asked to refrain from naming the Villa but we can say that it is certainly steeped in historical and literary significance.

Their love for beauty, art and ingenuity inspired Rachel and Michael to search for a unique venue within Europe’s cradle of the artistic imagination. So you can imagine how overwhelmed and fortunate they felt when their request to hold their wedding ceremony was accepted by one of the most notable members of Florentine’s Nobility.

Michael interpreted his emotions within the priceless interior by dedicating a piece of music to his lovely Bride, to the obvious delight of the assembled guests!

A creative and pure love illuminates existence and we could see that they felt their souls had truly come home the moment they declared their intention to be joined in matrimony in front of their families and such ancient dreamlike splendour.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank them both for affording us such a wonderful opportunity to have performed in such a special venue and to wish them both ‘Tanti Auguri’ e ‘Felicità’ … Firenze style!

My wife and I got married on June 24th and couldn’t be happier with how our wedding turned out. At first I was nervous about planning a wedding overseas but Diane and Guiseppe answered all of my questions, were very thorough and were great communicators through the whole process. We were able to customize our ceremony and we filled out a questionnaire which they were extremely receptive about and it really showed during the wedding because we felt like they were talking about us like they knew us for a long time. I would definitely recommend Blessings from Italy to anyone who is planning a wedding or blessing ceremony from afar because they really simplified and customized the process and delivered way beyond our expectations. It was a very beautiful ceremony and a day we will remember for the rest of our lives.

I am the brides sister and I was unable to attend the wedding…but I heard nothing but beautiful things about how well the service was performed! I love these two very much and it meant the world to me, even all those miles away, to know that they had such a unique, personal, intimate ceremony, the one they wanted as a result of you guys (and a lot of frantic planning,Rachel haha). Thank you for providing them with such an amazing memory and giving them what they deserved!!
