Daniela De Luca

Hello and thanks for taking some time to read this and get to know me a bit!

I was born in Rome in 1973. After graduating as an English translator and working and living abroad, in particular the UK and the US, I decided to settle back in my hometown, where I started planning weddings exclusively for foreign couples and not Italian ones, because well…it just seemed to fit perfectly with my love for foreign languages and cultures, my local knowledge of the Eternal City and my self-organising and planning attitude.


So here I am, planning weddings with my Dolce Vita Weddings since 2002 when the words “wedding planner” were still rarely heard of around here. I do not have packages, but prefer using a personal approach to create tailor-made events, so I only take up a few weddings a year, which I can personally plan, with the priceless help of my assistants and wonderful, trustworthy vendors.


My experience comes from working in the industry for so many years and learning something new from anyone, suppliers and couples, at each wedding, whether be it an elopement or a large-scale event with 200 guests.


I’m also a very curious person: I’ve taken wine classes (but remain a tea-addict), bakery classes (I have a sweet tooth and I’m a big fan of Tiramisu and scones with clotted cream) and pasta-making classes (my very Italian side: I’m a pasta lover).


All this has made me the wedding planner I am today, happy to share this wealth of experiences with the couples who’ll want me to be part of their big day and eventually become their friend in Rome.
