We are infinitely grateful to have met Giovanna - to celebrate our symbolic wedding in Puglia. Super professional, she helped us to organize many things for our ceremony that we would not have been able to do since we do not live in Puglia. The ceremony wording was also personalized, based on our wishes and the ceremony led flawlessly in two languages: Italian and German. Thanks so much! 
Furthermore, we loved how you welcomed our guests in our mother tongue (German and French/Swiss), and then continued in excellent English, with such a charming Italian accent. Everything was perfect, with a personal touch and we could feel you passion for this job! Without doubt, we can only recommend your services to any future brides and grooms who are looking for THE wedding celebrant in Italy!
