…my 85 year old Italian uncle (who had been a wedding photographer for over 50 years) mention how in all his life he’d never witnessed such an authentically dedicated and tailor-made wedding ceremony.
Upon searching for someone to officiate our marriage, we had specific criteria that we did not know if it would be easily met. Being a same sex couple, we were unsure if there would be any officiants in Sorrento willing to celebrate our marriage.
Furthermore, both my partner and I are first generation Canadians of Italian descent so it was really imperative that the ceremony be conducted in both English and Italian – allowing all our guests to share this memorable milestone with us. Therefore our Officiant would have to be versed in both English and Italian.
Our outstanding wedding planner Cheryl Pagano of Bella Sposa told us not to fret as she had the perfect person for us. From the minute she put us in contact with the fabulous Carmela Cesarano, we found everything we were looking for, as we instantly had a great vibe and connection with her.
Being fluent in both Italian and English, Carmela was extremely welcoming, considerate and accommodating from the onset. Her questionnaire designed for getting to know her clients was intensely thorough and comprehensive, and from the information she gathered, she created an exceptional and remarkable bespoke ceremony for us.
Throughout the ceremony Carmela was genuinely charismatic, soft spoken, engaging and funny which only enhanced the marvellous Sorrento backdrop.
Immediately following the conclusion of the ceremony, I had my 85 year old Italian uncle (who had been a wedding photographer for over 50 years) mention how in all his life he’d never witnessed such an authentically dedicated and tailor-made wedding ceremony.
Shortly after many of my guests complimented me on what a magnificent job Carmela had done and how she made them feel.
My partner and I will always be beyond grateful to Carmela for making this momentous occasion in our lives a sincerely unforgettable one!
