I’m Gemma, Italian wedding celebrant and former wedding planner in Italy.

I created offers for destination elopements in Italy

because I’m a romantic person and I love to create intimate moments.

Below you find all information about eloping in Italy.

If you cannot find your answer, feel free to contact me here: hello@sweetelopements.com

Are you a symbolic celebrant?

Yes, I’m a professional Italian wedding celebrant and performs my symbolic ceremonies mainly in Tuscany and Umbria. However, I’ve decided to add in my experiences as former wedding planner to create proposals for elopements in Italy. Also I offer brides and grooms from all over the world wedding consultation for their weddings, mainly in Italy.

To see my website as celebrant, see here: GemmaBlessings.com

Do you just perform symbolic ceremonies?

Yes, my ceremonies are symbolic, i.e. won’t legally bind you. However, I can help you get civilly married in Italy. For more details, please email me: hello@sweetelopements.com

 

What kind of ceremonies do you do?

I celebrate ceremonies like weddings and vow renewals.
They’re similar but highlight different parts of a couples’ lives.
Of course, I’ll gladly include parts like prayers, special thoughts to those who are not with us anymore, words of celebration for new born babies and whatever special wording you may want to include.

 

What is the style of your ceremonies?

My ceremonies are never too formal (nor boring).. My ceremonies are laid back, like me!
We’ll draft the text together and I’ll definitely include details from your life as a couple to make it as personal as possible!

Italian wedding planner

I would like to add a personal touch to my ceremony. Will it be possible?

Sure! You’ll be able to include any special wording into the ceremony text. Also, I’ll need many insights from you to personalize it. For example:

  • your personal story when you met
  • your feelings for each other
  • a fun or important event that made you realize you were the one for each other
  • a ritual of your choice
  • writing your own vows
  • the music you choose

Also, during the day, we’ll create special moments like the first look (if you want), the first dance, an intimate dinner, a private shooting.

 

I love rock music, can I have it?

Yes sure! That is also the advantage of a symbolic ceremony.
If you like rock music, don’t worry, I’m ready to go now!
I love details that reflect your personality so don’t be afraid to tell me your wishes!

 

I’m shy and don’t feel like talking. Is this a problem?

At all! The ceremony will reflect your personalities also in this.
I always like to add romance to my ceremonies and if you don’t feel like talking, I can read the words you wrote about your story. Or I can report them in a private letter to your spouse.

 

Can we perform a ritual during the ceremony?

Yes definitely! There are many to choose from: handfasting, rose ceremony, sand ritual, candle ritual, wine box ceremony. I’ll include all materials except the wine box and wine bottle. You’ll be able then, to bring the items we used back home so that they can be a forever memory of this day.
Also, you’ll bring back home a parchment we’ll sign together, a booklet with your vows, two small gifts from me.

I have a strong faith, can we include a blessing?

Although I perform symbolic ceremonies as Italian wedding celebrant, I’m not atheist. I do believe in God! At the same time, I’m not a priest but I’ll gladly read a prayer with you or include some words from the Bible.
