“We couldn’t have imagined our day being so special, but our Renewal Ceremony with Venice weddings was incredible. Ema’s passion ensured our day was completely about celebrating our love” – Mark
The love story of Angela and Mark Gorrell is one that proves fairytales do, in fact, still exist. Their courtship began many years ago in the small village of Chester, just Northwest of England, where the couple still resides today. Their love spans over two decades and is filled with many fulfilling memories which includes the blessing of their two beautiful children: Darcy (age 5) and Elliot (age 7). When it came time to plan their 15th anniversary celebration, Angela felt a vow renewal ceremony was “extremely important”.
Searching the internet, Angela found the work of Ema Giangreco at Venice Weddings through her website. She immediately felt confident Ema was capable of transforming the couple’s dream celebration into reality.
“From our first contact, we knew Ema was different from all the other planners we had interviewed. What most impressed us was her interest in our personal story,” said Angela. When asked about her overall experience working with Ema, Angela responded, “Over many weeks Ema paid great attention to every detail in planning our ceremony. Everything was tailored to our request, and Ema made us feel as if we were the only couple in the world. We knew our day would be special because of her.”
Ema ensured the comfort of all, including the kids, and in doing so she formed a unique bond with Angela’s Darcy, whom she refers to as “little cookie.”
On the third of October in the city of love, Mark, Angela, and their adorable children boarded an enchanting gondola and celebrated their 15 years of marriage. Angela loved the experience and expressed it by saying,“We were overcome with emotion. The words, the setting—everything was perfect”. To add a unique touch to the evening, Ema went above and beyond by creating a ceremony reading that reflected a fairytale. Elliot and Darcy sat mesmerized as she read story of their parents love. The couple, astonished by the experience, and even have plans to revisit Venice in 2016 to reminisce about their special day.
When asked what they are looking forward to in the next 15 years, Angela lovingly responded, “Watching our beautiful children grow up as we grow old together.”
Mark and Angela are effusive regarding their gratitude towards Ema, with whom they now call “a lifelong bond”.
….AND THEY LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER!
