Celebrants with Passaggi

Price Range


Couples who decide to use a celebrant find the event uplifting and enjoy the control it gives them over the style and content of the celebration. Our professional, trained celebrants believe in maintaining cultural awareness and strive to provide a service that recognises the unique personalities of all individuals.

After an initial no obligation meeting, in person or over video call, to discuss your ideas and air suggestions, the celebrant and the couple work together to plan and create a personalised and meaningful ceremony in close contact with your wedding planner, if you have decided to work with one, and venue manager. We will suggest suitable rituals that represent you and your story and we will looks for ways to involve you (with your personal vows) and/or other important people in your ceremony.

We will work on the script of the ceremony until you are completely satisfied that it reflects your dreams and wishes. We will also discuss and include your choices for readings and music. On the big day, we will arrive early to meet you and go over last minute details with technicians, musicians, and staff, greet your family and guests, and officiate the ceremony.

We are able to conduct the ceremony in English, Italian, or both, if you have international guests.

    The Perfect Celebrant
    December 2, 2019 6:26 am

    Sarah from Passaggi truly made our day complete. From the start we knew she was the celebrant for us. She’s caring, friendly and so understanding. She went above and beyond for us, writing the perfect ceremony and personalising it to fit us completely. Our guests said it was the best wedding ceremony they’d ever been to and that Sarah was incredible. She even helped us with communication in Italy when we were having trouble with our venue and saved the day! Thank you so much Sarah, our day wouldn’t have been anywhere near as amazing without you.

    The ceremony was exactly as we hoped it would be, but better. Sarah picked up small details from our discussions beforehand and during the ceremony it felt like she had known us for years.

    Look no further than Clarissa!

    Clarissa was a joy to work with; she gave us a lot of great suggestions and guidance and tailored our ceremony exactly to our tastes and reflecting our English and Norwegian backgrounds. That Clarissa stayed in regular contact with us in the run-up to our big day was such a comfort to us (having planned our Rome wedding remotely).
    Many of our guests praised how beautiful and intimate the ceremony was, and particularly enjoyed the Love Story that Clarissa had written for us. We cannot recommend Clarissa enough and are so grateful to have found her.
