Our Couples Say

Absolutely amazing

Thanks to Jo, our wedding was a dream come true. We could not have asked for a better celebrant, warm, welcoming and highly professional.

Aaron & Laura Wood

Thank you again for the lovely ceremony

Hi Irene, I just wanted to thank you again for the lovely ceremony you provided for Charlotte and I on our special day last weekend. It was exactly what we had hoped for and based on the feedback we received from guests it seems they also enjoyed it very much. All the best, Stephen & Charlotte

Stephen e Charlotte

Amazing from Start to Finish!

Often times, it’s hard to find the right fit for such a special moment in your life to kick off the start of your life together. We were so blessed to find that special relationship with Tuscan Pledges. Right from the start, we noticed the attention to detail to make our wedding celebration fit our needs and create the perfect start to our life together. Jo was amazing, and providing quick responses to questions and inquiries. Francesca performed our ceremony with a care and professionalism, we sincerely appreciated. The ceremony was perfectly fit to us as a couple and we were able to incorporate unique cultural aspects from our heritage. It’s amazing how Jo and her team are able to create such a special ceremony with a few interviews and questionnaires, even from miles away! We are so grateful and the ceremony truly touched us and gave us such an amazing start to our life as a married couple. Thank you for everything!! Highly recommend this team, especially planning from abroad!

Kristina e Diego

Wonderful celebrant who gave us a beautiful and moving service for our special day

We are both so thankful to Tuscan Pledges for creating a very emotional, moving service for our wedding ceremony which captured the best parts of our relationship. Janneke was fantastic on the day, very welcoming and delivered the service beautifully. It was a very special moment for us and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect ceremony – thank you so much

Bryony e Thomas

Just incredible

All we can say is that Jo went above and beyond our expectations ! From the start we were very nervous choosing an officiant whom we had never met prior however Jo felt like family from day 1! She was so thorough getting to know all about our lives, how we met, what made us the couple we are. Throughout the way including choosing the ceremony , special ways to make our ceremony different and even a voluntary questionnaire she sent us it was just incredible. Jo showed up to our special day early by making sure everyone knew exactly what they needed to do . Jo even helped fix my veil during the ceremony since none of our bridal party was with us. We cannot say enough about how highly we recommended Tuscan Pledges but we’re brought to tears by Jo’s words she wrote for our special day. Thank you , we are truly and eternally grateful for you!! Especially Italian Wedding Designer for recommending to use this incredible service! Xoxox love , The Valenti’s.

Giovanni and Molly

Une cérémonie parfaite

Merci Irene,
Nous gardons un merveilleux souvenir de la célébration de notre mariage en Italie. Nous avons adoré la cérémonie et de nombreux invités nous ont félicité, nous spécifiant qu’elle avait été très belle, avec beaucoup d’émotions.
Ainsi nous voulons également vous féliciter et vous remercier pour ce moment si spécial partagé avec vous, c’était magnifique, vous avez été parfaite!

Danielle e Cédric

Hi Jo!!!

I am SO sorry how long it has taken for me to write to you – our wedding and trip was the most incredible whirlwind it truly feels like it was a dream. Our absolute dream come true and we owe so much of that to you. Our ceremony was so sentimental, personal, heartfelt and absolutely perfect for us. Since we debated if we should do our personal vows privately and ultimately did, still hearing each others words that we wrote about each other to you and how you delivered them for us was the sweetest surprise moment in front of our family and friends. We wouldn’t have had it any other way. You were an absolute pleasure to work with, gave us the warmest welcome, in the midst of a busy morning you came in so organized with ease, and handled the strong winds and falling flower vase at the altar so graciously. It’s the unexpected imperfections like that that contribute to the charm and memory of the day. Every one of our guests had the best compliments of you and the personalized ceremony you gave us. The hand ritual was a crowd favorite. Thank you again for everything and for being a such a special part of our favorite day. I will leave a Google and Facebook review since every couple looking for a celebrant should have you ♥️

Sophie e Ryan

Excellent celebrant services

We used Tuscan Pledges due to the recommendation of a friend in Tuscany. Coordinating with Jo before the wedding was straightforward and she helped tailor an elegant but simple ceremony for us. Janneke was our celebrant on the day. She was lovely – calm, composed, and very professional.

Sarah e Jack

Hi Sofia!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you from myself and Michael for being there at our wedding. I wouldn’t of changed one single thing and having you there marry us felt so special. There would be no one else we want to marry us. You have been amazing since the moment we first got in touch, honestly thank you so much! We had so many comments on how amazing you were, your tone of voice, and all over wonderful. That will be something we remember for the rest of our lives.

Thank you once again!

Chloe e Michael

Thank you Sofia for a wonderful ceremony!

Thank you Sofia for being our wedding celebrant on May 17 at Palazzo Vanneschi in Bucine!
We were both impressed by your professionalism, courtesy, kind spirit, and how you created such a beautiful ceremony for us and incorporated our questionnaire responses to personalize it.
You made it easy to plan together and coordinate beforehand on what’s app, and via email.
What a special day it was, and we thank you for your role in making it truly magical. And what a pleasure it was to work with you!

Jose e Cesa

Sofia is very kind

Sofia was our celebrant for our symbolic ceremony in Tuscany September 2023 and she was absolutely amazing! Sofia is very kind and thoughtful and the ceremony she put together was so intimate and emotional for me and my husband, and even for all our guests. There really wasn’t a dry eye in the house! We especially loved warming of the rings and how she got everyone involved in the Jewish tradition of stomping on the glass. We loved every second of the ceremony and can’t wait to watch it back for years to come. Thank you Sofia!!!

Gabriela e Scott Stevelman


Jo was a beautiful soul and we appreciate everything she did for us on our special day in Agriturismo Terre di Nano. We included our family members in our ceremony in many different ways that Jo was so accommodating to. It was very important to us to incorporate certain aspects of our life into our special day and our wants in the lead up to the ceremony was spoken about with Jo and nothing was dismissed or invalidated. Jo’s expertise shone through when she met myself (the bride) early in the day and spoke calmly with me about my family members involvement whilst I was getting ready. During the ceremony, Jo’s voice and presence was exceptional. We could not have asked for a more impressive and dedicated celebrant. Thank you forever and ever Jo. Pictures attached for reference.

Mr and Mrs Jack and Jacqui O'Keeffe

Your service/ceremony, it was perfect!

Sofia. we just wanted to send you a note that we absolutely loved your service/ceremony, it was perfect! Thank you so much for making it so wonderful and special. We will always remember it!

Best wishes and thank you again!

Holly e Ramsey

Thank you SO much for the love and energy you put in there…

Hello Sofia
Now that we are back to normal, I want to take the time to thank you for the wonderful service you gave for our wedding, Sept 11. We knew from the conversation we had, it would be wonderful but it exceeded our expectations! Thank you SO much for the love and energy you put in there. Many people also came up to us afterwards to say how well you did this. Thank you!!!!
Love, Michele & Anthony.
Michele e Anthony

You are true professionals…

Sofia & Jo, I wanted to reach out to you both and express how perfect our wedding ceremony was. Sofia was incredible: her calm, sensitive, and loving presence made the ceremony one of the most beautiful days of our lives. We loved how she spoke in Spanish for Adnelly’s parents and how she so eloquently distilled our words into beautiful expressions of love. And of course we also must express our gratitude to you both for being flexible in these confusing times and clearly communicating with us about your priorities. You are true professionals who played a large part in making our wedding magical. Thank you again for everything. Kory and Adnelly

Kory e Adnelly

Sofia was kind and professional

My wedding planner introduced us to Tuscan Pledges for our ceremony and that is when we were connected with Sophia. She set up a zoom call right away to meet us and go over everything, I knew instantly that she was going to do an amazing job for us. She was kind and professional. She sent us a questionnaire to fill out individually for her to be able to customize our ceremony. We picked our own ritual with her help and she sent me a lot of readings to chose from when I needed help finding some. When the ceremony time came it’s hard to find the words for how perfect it truly was. Sophia was so warm and sweet. The ceremony flowed beautifully, she had captured us perfectly as a couple and there was not a dry eye there. The ceremony is such a crucial part of the day and I am so glad we had Sophia there to carry us through it. I cannot thank her enough!

Taylor e Robert

The best celebrant around!

Jo was simply amazing. She was professional, organized, very kind, and kept us calm throughout the planning process and even on the wedding day! The ceremony was beautiful. We actually had many people come up to us saying how lovely our celebrant was. I highly recommend Tuscan Pledges!

Jessica e Michael

Thank you so much Jo for the service…

Thank you so much Jo for the service you provided for us on Friday 27th September at Castello Del Trebbio.

You listened to all of our requests and made every second of the service full of love and fun. Many guests commented on what a great uplifting ceremony it was and there were very few dry eyes during!

The process from the beginning was so easy and enjoyable for us. We loved the questionnaire element too, we realised we were more compatible than we thought!

Thank you for being part of one of the biggest days of our lives!!

Niki e Jake

Wedding at Villa Catignano… the Greatest Day!!

Jo from Tuscan Pledges was our celebrant when we held our symbolic ceremony at Villa Catiganano on 24/10/23.
She was warm and friendly and appeared so happy to be working with us. She gave us ‘homework’ pre ceremony so that she would understand us and our relationship better. We were sceptical. But we did it and it was a wonderful way to capture the essence of our relationship in the ceremony. On the day she was professional and understated and helped fill the room with love and joy. She has also provided us with a transcript for us to keep and for those who couldn’t hear well. Thank you, Jo, for being part of our incredible fairytale wedding.

David e Rowena

Thank You

Jo was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. The celebrant has a very special role on the wedding day and we could not have been happier with Jo. Jo was very professional and efficient, but most importantly, she understood what we wanted and delivered exactly that. The ceremony itself was perfect – very personal and romantic, with some extra touches which made it even more special. Thank you Jo – we would certainly recommend you to anyone getting married out in Tuscany!

Alex & Carla

A special touch to a beautiful day

Francesca’s calming presence made our special day all the more memorable. The ceremony was crafted so creatively and had so many personal touches that we both really appreciated being added. Our families in particular loved the warming of the rings, it was something they have never seen before but made the ceremony so memorable. Thank you to the Tuscan Pledges team we truly appreciate you being a part of our day!

Jamie e Matt

We just wanted to share our appreciation.

Hi Jo,
We just wanted to share our appreciation. Thank you so much for an amazing ceremony. We really loved all of your kind words and guidance through everything right from the first call we had with you!
You were excellent and all of our guests were commenting on how it was so beautiful and well done. Lots of tears in the audience!
Thank you so much you are so talented!
Stef & Greig

Stef & Greig

Thank you, Jo, for making our day so special and unforgettable.

We were absolutely thrilled to work with Jo from Tuscan Pledges from the moment we first met her. Her warm and calming demeanor immediately put us at ease, and we knew right away that she was the perfect person to officiate our special day.
Jo took the time to speak with us and genuinely get to know us as a couple. She sent us separate questionnaires to gain further insight into our relationship and how we felt about one another. This thoughtful process allowed her to craft the most beautiful ceremony that truly blew us away.
Having attended many weddings, we’ve often heard officiants go through the motions. However, Jo made our ceremony incredibly unique by tailoring it to us and the journey we have shared together. Her dedication and attention to detail were evident, making our day even more memorable. On the day itself, Jo’s calming presence kept us at ease during the ceremony, allowing us to fully enjoy and savor each moment. Her ability to capture the essence of our love and present it so eloquently left a lasting impression on us and our guests. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect ceremony. Thank you, Jo, for making our day so special and unforgettable.


Jenna e Anthony

We are thankful for Sofia!

We had the pleasure to work with Sofia for our intimate wedding. Since we organized everything remotely, we scheduled a video call with Sofia and she answered all of our questions. We are a bilingual family and she was able to communicate in Spanish perfectly. She was extremely helpful, professional and organized, prior and during the ceremony. She engaged with all guests, but mainly she was able to communicate the correct message of our love story, based on the answers we had shared with her. Thank you again Sofia, for making our special day , unforgettable!

Andres & Yuly

Sofia was such a bright light…

Through rain and shine Sofia was such a bright light on our big day. She smiled through rain as she executed the ceremony and made both of us feel so at ease. Many of our guests complimented how well Sofia did and went as far as asking for a copy of what she said because it was so beautiful. We highly recommend hiring Sofia for your big day!

Vic and McKenzie Travagliante

We recently had our destination

We recently had our destination wedding in Tuscany and hired Tuscan Pledges to officiate our ceremony. Sofia was our officiant and she was absolutely incredible. We truly appreciated her presence and genuine extension of love towards us during this very important day in our lives. We have received so many compliments about how great of a job Sofia did being the officiant at our ceremony. She captured our love story perfectly through her words and navigated bringing together two different cultures seamlessly (I’m from the US and my husband is from Denmark). We will cherish this special moment for the rest of our lives. Sofia was a huge part in making the moment extra special and ensuring our ceremony went smoothly as well as truly encapsulated our love for each other.

Megan Grant + Thomas Pedersen

They cared about us and our wedding

Working with Jo and the team at Tuscan Pledges was one of the easiest aspects of our wedding! The process was simple and quick but we felt like they cared about us and our wedding. My husband and I loved that they left some pieces as a surprise for us on our wedding day, and they were very accommodating to the specifics we wanted for our ceremony. Francesca was a wonderful officiant for our wedding and she captivated our relationship perfectly. We would definitely recommend them to others looking for an officiant!

Bianca Dabney

Absolutely amazing!

Sofia with was our celebrant for our symbolic ceremony in Tuscany September 2023 and she was absolutely amazing! Sofia is very kind and thoughtful and the ceremony she put together was so intimate and emotional for me and my husband, and even for all our guests. There really wasn’t a dry eye in the house! We especially loved warming of the rings and how she got everyone involved in the Jewish tradition of stomping on the glass. We loved every second of the ceremony and can’t wait to watch it back for years to come.

Thank you Sofia!!!

Gabriela and Scott Stevelman

Blown away!

Dear Janneke, I am sorry it has taken a while to send this message however we would just like to say thank you so much for officiating our marriage at Casa Cornacchi. We were blown away by how you managed to capture the essence of exactly what we wanted our ceremony to be! It was short sweet, funny and it really seemed like you had known us both a lifetime! Many of our guests said how much they enjoyed the ceremony and that was down to you. We wish you both all the best!

Camilla ed Anton

Francesca transformed our ceremony into a celebration

My husband & I recently had the pleasure of working with Francesca as our wedding celebrant, and we couldn’t be happier with how it went. We opted for a symbolic ceremony as we were coming from overseas, but this did not impact the the level of service or attention to detail we received. Francesca (and Jo) listened to what we were after, offered guidance and patience; resulting in a ceremony that felt genuine, heartfelt and perfectly aligned with our vision. By taking the time with us, Francesca transformed our ceremony into a celebration that not only honoured our commitment, but also highlighted the essence of who we are as a couple.

Thank you again!

Kelsey e Rob


We would like to thank Irene from the bottom of our hearts for the unique, deep, solemn and emotional ceremony she held for us. It was an absolute gift and fortune to have her celebrate our wedding. She was able to make it special, intimate and precious for us and our beloved ones. It was a moment suspended in time, so moving. She described our love so perfectly. Thank you Irene for your professionalism, your honesty, and your ability to convey emotions.

Jackie e Tony

Working with Jo is wonderful!

We found Jo through our wedding planner in Tuscany and she is the sweetest, most wonderful person to work with. She was so easily to speak to while we were planning the wedding, and our initial Zoom consultation was very thorough and easy. She then sent us a questionnaire to fill out in order to personalize our ceremony, which I loved! She also has a lot of ideas about the ceremony, and she has ritual and very thoughtful ring vow examples ready too. Whether you know exactly what you want for your ceremony, or you’re totally lost with no ideas, Jo will work with you through it all. Fast forward to the actual ceremony – she is one of the sweetest, warmest people I have ever met. All of our guests agreed she had the warmest demeanor and most calming voice – we could listen to her speak forever! We feel so, so lucky to have found her, not only as our officiant, but hopefully as a lifelong friend. I can’t recommend her highly enough! Justine & Tim

Justine e Tim

Jo and Francesca were fantastic!

Jo and Francesca were fantastic! Not only did they guide us through what we needed to do when planning our wedding, but they were extremely helpful and no question was too small, they were all answered with the same enthusiasm. Not once did we feel overwhelmed or stressed when planning. The team were so thoughtful and helpful when getting ready for the ceremony and helped put a nervous Bride and Groom at ease. We had many laughs with everyone, that the afternoon didn’t feel alien to us, but felt like we were having a celebration with some friends. Thank you so much. We cannot tell you just how perfect our wedding truly was. All the best in your married life

Ajay e Henah

You can tell that this is her passion.

Jo helped to bring our dream Tuscan 10-year vow renewal to life! From our zoom consultation up to the morning of, her communication was professional, timely, and kind. Her attention to detail is impressive and so is her loving spirit. You can tell that this is her passion. I highly recommend Jo and team for your momentous occasion, you won’t regret it! Warmly, Brittany and Dustin Williams

Brittany e Dustin Williams

A perfect ceremony

Where do we start, Janneke was a perfect part of our wedding in Italy. The ceremony words were exactly what we wanted from a blessing service. The way she included personal stories from each of us really made it, and all our guests complimented on how lovely this was. The communication from start to end was amazing, and Janneke spoke perfect English throughout it all. Thanks so much to her and Jo, we would 100% recommend your service!

Clinton e Emma

We recently received the video…

We recently received the video for our wedding. I would like to share this link with you. It is only the trailer because the actual video is too large but I think this sums the day up perfectly.

We just can’t thank you enough for making our day so fabulous.

Everyone always comments how your words were beautiful and poignant. It was so emotional.

Tom and Jenni

Thank you so much Jo!

Jo created the most beautiful ceremony for us in Italy for our special day. From the moment we met we knew she would be perfect for our ceremony.

Every part was beautifully delivered and planned and she said the loveliest script in the wedding. She also sent us vow examples to help us. We would highly recommend her as she made us feel at ease and even more in love. Thank you so much Jo!

Lauren e Michael

We absolutely loved the ceremony!

Hi Sofia,
I just wanted to thank you again for marrying Steve and I on Tuesday! We absolutely loved the ceremony, it was even better than I hoped and so many of my guests commented on how lovely it was and what a great celebrant you were. Apparently half of the back row was in tears! I will look back on the wedding ceremony as a joyful memory for the rest of my life. Thank you for being an important part of making our dream day a reality, you really made the ceremony so special for us! It was an absolute pleasure working with you from start to finish.
With love,

Charlotte e Steve

Because of you We had a dream wedding ceremony…

Hi Jo, I’m writing to say thank you! Because of you We had a dream wedding ceremony. Those beautiful and kind words that you shared will stay with us forever. And i think you saw everyone was crying which i think is the best proof how we were all touched. And I have to say that filling out that questionnaire and then listening to what we had to say about each was so touching. it was another reminder of how we love each other. Thank you again! Zosia & Sebi

A perfect day!

We couldn’t have been happier with the service provided by Tuscan Pledges.

We had the pleasure of working with Jo as our celebrant. She was very informative, caring and happy throughout the whole process and ensuring she had everything she needed for the ceremony. Our ceremony could not have been more perfect, her kind words and warmth really made us feel special and you could feel the love as she performed the ceremony.

Shannen e Scott

The wedding was beautiful!

The wedding was beautiful! Tuscan Pledges were very professional and reliable. They made the ceremony extra special. Highly recommend!

Jennifer e Paul Donsbach

Simply wonderful!

As much as we though our elopement would be special, the ceremony with Irene made it even more special and unique. The text she read us during the ceremony was so touching, emotional and personal. It was simply perfect, it represented us. Irene was so kind, funny but at the same time serious and solemn when the ceremony started. This moment will stay in our hearts for the rest of our lives! Thanks again!!

Rosalie e Yann

Choose Jo! The warmest celebrant!

From the moment we were introduced to Jo, she made us feel so incredibly special. Jo is so lovely, warm, attentive, interested and informative. We felt totally clear on what to expect, what we needed the provide and the feel of our upcoming ceremony. She asked us a few questions beforehand and shaped the ceremony around the answers. She was really accessible and responsive when we had questions and even offered to print the readings & vows for us and our friends. We knew we were in safe hands with Jo! All of our guests commented on how intimate and emotional the ceremony had been and how much they enjoyed Jo! Choose Jo, you won’t regret it!

Jess & Jordan

What a wonderful service and day!

Lisa and I were looking for an Officiant to have a ceremonial wedding in Tuscany. We contacted Jo about the possibility, and she was terrific right from the start. Jo matched us up with Francesca, who we adored. She was both professional, and personable at the same time. To start with, we are from Canada and brought a party of 14 with us. This service made it easy for us to make it happen with as little hassle as possible. Jo recommended the florist, helped create our vows, and at the end, helped us communicate with the restaurant we liked, and needed help organizing. Our Venue was an old monastery/winery building in Marcialla, it turned out to be a perfect location! We could all walk to the restaurant after the service, and enjoy an amazing dinner. We feel that some of the perks of working with Tuscan Pledges were them knowing the ritual, organizing the pledges, and giving us contacts for peripheral services, then helping with the communications. We would not hesitate recommending Tuscan Pledges for your wedding Officiant services!

Gratsi Francesca

Lisa and Scott

Thank you SO MUCH for the amazing ceremony

Hi Jo,
I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you SO MUCH for the amazing ceremony you did for us back in October. It was so personal and beautiful, and you just have such a way of delivering everything so romantically! It was so special for us, particularly after the long wait and delays!
Aside from that, so many people commented on what a beautiful ceremony it was, and my nan said it was the most romantic wedding she’s ever been to!! I did ask her if she was a bit biased given I am her granddaughter, but she reckons she isn’t 😉Truly thank you for the bottom of our hearts!
With all our best wishes

I would do it all over again…

Dear Davide and Jo, a little late, but we wanted to write you to thank Davide who created a beautiful ceremony, just how we wanted it. And thank you because we were absolutely comfortable. I would do it all over again, exactly the same way! Hugs from Laura, Graziano, Nicholas, and Evelyn

Laura e Graziano


Our experience with Tuscan Pledges was nothing short of fantastic from start to finish. Jo and the team are so responsive to emails and answered all of our questions so quickly. Janneke conducted our ceremony and it was truly perfect, she used the information we had given her to create the most amazing ceremony for us, her energy and kindness radiated throughout and completely put us at ease during the exciting but nervous moments! I would recommend Janneke & Tuscan Pledges in an instant!

Kayleigh & Joel

A big thank you to Sofia!

Hi Sofia
Giles and I just wanted to say a big thank you again for being such a great celebrant for our wedding on Saturday.
We loved the ceremony and lots of people commented on how much they enjoyed the wine box ritual and the answers about one another.
Thank you for making it such a memorable event!

Hattie e Giles

Wonderful celebrant who gave us a beautiful and moving service for our special day

We are both so thankful to Tuscan Pledges for creating a very emotional, moving service for our wedding ceremony which captured the best parts of our relationship. Janneke was fantastic on the day, very welcoming and delivered the service beautifully. It was a very special moment for us and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect ceremony – thank you so much!

Bryony & Tom


We were so pleased with Tuscan pledges. We had a small intimate elopement and I think Francesca really made a good job of making it feel very special and grand. We also appreciated that the ceremony was symbolic and non-religious which is exactly what we wanted. I cried the whole time, the words spoken were so beautiful.


Highly recommend Sofia from Tuscan Pledges

Highly recommend Tuscan Pledges for your ceremony in Italy. Sofia from Tuscan Pledges was amazing, our guests even mentioned how beautiful the ceremony she led was. My husband and I got married in Bucine, Tuscany in September 2023, and hired Sofia from Tuscan Pledges and we could not be happier that we did. Our wedding guests were mostly Spanish speakers, so we hired Sofia for our wedding ceremony as she speaks spanish. Sofia met with us a couple times before our big day to get to know us and also explain how the ceremony could work, offering us many different options to go off of. Sofia also was in constant communication with us before our big day to make sure the ceremony script was perfect. We felt an instant connection with Sofia over our couple conversations before our big day and felt that same beautiful connection they day of our wedding, she made us feel like we knew her for a long time. Our ceremony was beautiful and just what we wanted it to be. She made our day seamless and significant.

We highly recommend Sofia from Tuscan Pledges!!

Stella & Juan

We honestly could not have asked for a better celebrant.

We hired Sofia to officiate our elopement in Tuscany, and we honestly could not have asked for a better celebrant. Our ceremony was so personalized and touching, that my husband asked for me to request a transcript of our ceremony, for him to keep and be able to revisit whenever we wanted. Sofia was so warm and welcoming, it felt like we had known her for years prior, even though we had only met in person on the day of our elopement. I could not recommend Sofia and the rest of Tuscan Pledges for anyone’s ceremony; the person that officiates your ceremony can make or break the whole experience and day, and Sofia made our day even more memorable than we could have imagined. She gifted us with unexpected yet beautiful memories, including a beautiful hand ritual that I will forever have engrained in my memories. Thank you Sofia, and Jo, from the bottom of both our hearts, we are indebted to you for making our day truly fairy-tale like. I only wish I could marry again, to have you at our ceremony again! Kelly & James

Kelly e James

Our guests were touched by his work

We wish to thank Davide for the moving ceremony and the beautiful words he spoke during our wedding ceremony.
All of our guests were touched by his work.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Davide!

Marika e Samuele

The celebrant we will cherish forever

We had Irene celebrate our symbolic wedding in Greve in Chianti.
She held a wonderful ceremony, her words and expression were always sweet and reassuring.
All our guests were visibly moved, like us, and this for us counts more than a thousand words.
Her professionalism was flawless, and she gave us the gift of celebrating our union in such an impeccable and moving way, that will be for ever in our hearts.
Thank you for everything Irene, we would choose you a thousand times again, you really made our dream come true!

Alessia e Daniele

Wonderful personal ceremony

We can’t thank Jo enough for our wonderful ceremony, she captured our story beautifully. All our guests complimented how lovely and personal our ceremony was. We are a Scottish couple who got married in Italy, and she talked us through all options and gave great advice. Jo also helped us shape the ceremony, so it was exactly as we wanted it. Thank you Jo!

Darren e Rebecca Moon

Our wedding ceremony was perfect, thanks to Sofia

Sofia was the perfect addition to our wedding at Castello Di Volognano in September 2023. She is a warm, engaging and helpful; and delivered our ceremony with gentleness, sentiment and a touch of humour. Together with our children, we loved participating in the sand ritual – a beautiful touch, and the opportunity to seamlessly include my mother and our close friend to provide readings. Being from Australia, we liaised with Sofia over email and video call in the lead up to our wedding. On the day of our wedding, Sofia met with us both separately to make sure we were comfortable with the plans. Thank you for making our day so special Sofia. We gladly recommend you to others planning to get married in Italy.

We are so glad to have chosen Sofia. Grazie Mille!

Tracey e Alex

Gorgeous moment

We wish to thank Irene for our wedding. The ceremony was meaningful and emotional. The ritual including our children was a moment of unity we will cherish forever.

Magali et Kevin

Marina & Philip

A moving experience

Thank you Irere from the bottom of our hearts for celebrating our ceremony in Italian and French. You accompanied us in the most perfect way and made this ceremony unforgettable and moving.
Your sweet voice and your presence won over our guests during the ritual we selected. We will forever cherish this magic event in Tuscany!

Francesca e Gilles

Thank you!

We could not have imagined a better officiator than Jo. She was working with us a lot before the wedding resulting in her speech being incredibly personal and touching. Her way of working was also fun for us as a couple because we got to think our relationship and put it in words.
Thank you once again Jo, for making our day even more special.
Lots of love.

Cornelia e Tomas

Personalized and Intimate Tuscan Wedding ft. Our Dog Theo

Jo Bertolino was such a pleasure to work with! She made sure to make the ceremony intimate and personal to reflect our personality as a couple, and even suggested a great way to include our dog, Theo, in the ceremony! We had 80 of our closest friends and family fly into Tuscany from New York and California, and we’re truly pleased with how the ceremony set the tone for the wedding and overall trip to Italy!

Exactly how we wanted it!

We both wanted to say a huge thank you for providing such a beautiful ceremony for us on Saturday. It was exactly what we wanted, fun and romantic all in one, truly perfect. It was also noted how professional you were, especially with the mic playing up!
So pleased we got to do it with the Tuscan hill views. I also understand it was your suggestion to add the flowers to the signing table, thank you for that, I did notice it when I got to the altar and wondered where they came from, it looked beautiful.
We really loved the reading you did for us at the start.
Jo – Huge thank you in guiding us to build our perfect ceremony before the day.
