On the day your love was born, you started writing a story together, made of precious moments, fantastic adventures, sometimes annoying days and difficulties that you still faced together.
Our lives are different from anybody else’s. That’s the exciting thing. Nobody in the universe can do what we’re doing*, someone wiser than me said, and it’s true! And the beautiful thing about telling a story is sharing it with the people you love, with the people that make your life special.
Probably, you’re afraid that your story might come out boring, that it doesn’t have the right words, the ones that really speak to you, of you, that putting all of your passions in your wedding might fall short, because they weren’t really included, just skimmed over, and that the result won’t satisfy your needs, your wants, your desires.
Chances are, someone told you “but this is how it’s done, this is traditional“, or you are thinking “What will my grandmother think about a non-white dress? What will my uncle say about having Rammstein for the first dance?“, and maybe, maybe, you’re considering giving in to some of those fears, and giving up some of your dreams but… who can decide what they dream? And why shouldn’t they become true?
Never give up, never give in.
You’re exactly in the right place.
Hi! I’m Costanza, and with Daniela, we plan unconventional and alternative weddings for geeky, nerdy, quirky people, so they can be unconditionally loved on their wedding day, and see their story told exactly as they want it. We’re all stories, and I want to make them good ones!
Your doubts, your indecisions, were mine too: my husband and I didn’t want a wedding that could be confused with any other wedding either. Our story was important for us, like yours is for you. We decided that there were things that couldn’t be compromised on (the presence of our dogs, for example, or the fact that we would have a symbolic ceremony).
Because of this, I won’t ask you to compromise on what is important for you. Your top priorities will be my top priorities as well. Not one pin will drop if you don’t want it to.
That sensation when nothing you see really fits you, I know it well. It might be beautiful, but it doesn’t belong with you and it doesn’t spark joy in you. And if it doesn’t spark joy, we might as well Marie Kondo it out of your story.
This whole experience will make your story shine, Daniela and I will meet you where you are so that you can face everything at your best and with two precious allies at your side.
Daniela, she’s my partner-in-crime, is the hands-on woman. She has such delightful inventive creativity: centrepieces, table plans, decorations just take life in her hands.
Costanza, that’s me writing, is the wordy-woman. I love talking with people, discovering what makes them tick, and writing. Oh, how I love writing, that’s why I adore being a celebrant, as well. Unrepentant nerd (as you can see from the sheer number of quotes in this website), with a… peculiar sense of humour, and weird hobbies, like LARP (live-action role-playing games) and writing fanfictions.
The first wedding I organized, oh gosh, it seems ages ago, but it was 2013. This dear friend of mine, Alice, had asked for my help, and I always come to the rescue to those who ask for my assistance. I still remember when I got there, two days before the wedding, after one year of planning (400 km apart, on top of everything else). Alice is usually anxious and fretful on days like this but that day, the day she and her soon-to-be husband were due to tell their story, she was seraphic. When people asked her why, she answered, “I know Costanza will take care of everything”.
And that’s how it’ll be for you too. We’ll have worked together for weeks, at the very least, and you’ll have someone who knows what you want and how you want it done.
Someone you can seek for comfort, because people around you will be probably nervous and excited and sometimes you just need someone who can make you relax; or a wedding planner that has a very Nymphadora Tonks moment and slams her nose on a very clean window, but hey, you laughed, it was worth it (it’s worth to note that I didn’t that on purpose and that I didn’t break anything, if not a bit of pride).
If now you’re curious about what we can really do for you, why don’t you go and get a sneak peek?
