We were celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary and renewed our vows. The whole team working on this were wonderful from the person making the arrangements to the celebrant and the photographer on the boat with us. Absolutely wonderful time, fun and full of joy. When circumstances changed on scheduling they were extremely helpful reorganising too. Excellent service and a magical way to renew vows.

We had a wonderful time on the gondola. Our official for the ceremony was Sergio Lanteri. He was delightful and charming. He gave us a tour of the Grand Canal before we went into a smaller canal for the actual ceremony. The ceremony itself was brief but poignant. We then travelled through multiple quaint side canals ending up in our original starting location. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable experience.

Fantastic experience - and very romantic

Due to bad weather we didn't actually get to renew our vows in the gondola. Maria Rosa immediately came up with plan B, which was to have the ceremony inside the Doge Palace. Later in the afternoon the weather cleared up and we had our gondola ride - so amazing and romantic. I highly recommend Venice Events.
