    If you value the actual ceremony and hope it will live on in the hearts and minds of others too, then pay close attention to the information you provide us with. The most pleasurable and creative aspect of our service is in the transformation of your words into beautifully flowing prose, which will accurately and touchingly reflect your feelings for one another.

    We have become adept at ascertaining the style and manner in which we should formulate ceremonies to reflect your wishes. We are never sugary and over romantic but represent genuine sentiments, expressed as you would wish them to be…. and judging by recent feedback, most couples feel that this makes all the difference to the experience of being joined together symbolically forever. After all your intention to marry will affect the rest of your lives and with this in mind, we will leave you with an inspirational thought, simply but powerfully expressed by one of the wisest men ever to have lived…Mahatma Gandhi.

    Keep your thoughts positive,
    because your thoughts become your words.
    Keep your words positive,
    because your words become your behaviours.
    Keep your behaviours positive,
    because your behaviours become your habits.
    Keep your habits positive,
    because your habits become your values.
    Keep your values positive,
    because your values become your destiny.

A Perfect Elopement at La Suvera

Elias and Brittany’s intimate wedding ceremony was such a heartfelt experience…not just for them but also for us and their photographer. The incredibly talented Jules was the only other witness to a tender scene conducted in the grounds of a most elegant Tuscan Villa ‘La Suvera’, nestled in the delightfully filmic province of Siena. Brittany’s […]

We had this wonderful couple officiate our wedding in Tuscany and they couldn’t have been better. Our ceremony was so personal and well done. It was really special and I felt like we really chose the right people.

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.

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!!

A Wedlocked Image!

Working within the wedding industry, Scott and Donice are more used to photographing weddings rather than starring as protagonists, so it was interesting to see how much they relished the opportunity to feature as Bride and Groom in their very own stunning wedding shoot. They opted for an elegant 15th century Villa with an excellent […]

We planned our Italy wedding from Nashville TN and never met any of our vendors until the day of our wedding. You can imagine how stressful that was. My biggest concern was that our wedding would be cold and impersonal. To our surprise, Giuseppe and Diane tailored our ceremony and spoke about us like they’d known us for years. They requested detailed information about my husband and I beforehand and shared bits and pieces of it during the ceremony. They shared things that made us all laugh, as well as things that made us cry. I was happy they stayed after the ceremony for pictures because they both were truly a huge part of our intimate celebration. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and we thank Blessings From Italy again for taking the time to make our moment as important to them as it was to us. =)

A Model Bride at La Suvera

  It is easy to appreciate why LeAngela Davis is such a successful model and her husband, Martin Melius is proud, which is completely understandable. Her modelling skills proved useful on the day for the pre and post wedding shoot but it was the Bride’s profound emotion which was responsible for illuminating such a glorious […]

Me and my wife traveled from the United States to get married in Tuscany. Giuseppe and Diane Rossi were absolutely fantastic! They were available for questions throughout the many months of planning, via email, phone and skype. Leading up to our event of our lifetime, we were sometimes in disbelief by how responsive, professional and kind Mr. Rossi was. He helped put our minds at ease, provided a questionnaire for us to help plan the ceremony, and went out of his way to answer any silly tourist type questions as well when he was available. When we finally met in person, they were already like family to us. I can not say enough about their service and if we could rate them 10.0 out of 5, we would. They made an already unforgettable moment even more fantastic! THANK YOU!
