We are independent celebrants who work in Italy officiating important milestones of life: naming ceremonies, weddings, funerals or commemorations. As independent celebrants, we plan and conduct personalised non-religious ceremonies that combine a personal touch with a strong sense of ritual. We believe in preparation and professionalism, and as such we all have completed training courses as celebrants. We conduct ceremonies in English, Italian, or both.
For weddings we create ceremonies for couples who live in Italy as well as for international couples who choose Italy for their destination wedding.

“Thanks to her sensitive and thorough preparation, Clarissa was able to produce a funny, touching, charming and eloquent account of Tommaso and Chiara’s courtship and relationship. And faced with many guests who spoke either English or Italian but not both, she skilfully alternated between the two languages so as to include everyone”. (Frederika, bridegroom’s mother)
