Angela Bock married an Italian and fell in love with the Italian culture and traditions staying with him. Here comes her romantic interview with us
Hallo Angela Bock, where does your work as a wedding planner come from?
I used to work in the luxury hotel world and my mother-in-law organized my wedding because I worked too much! My husband is Italian, he comes from Umbria to be precise, and our wedding has been a real dream. All parents and friends who joined us were enthusiastic for the location, for the good wine and food and for the Italian traditions. I still have the gooseflesh remembering that day. So I decided to open an office in order to give a good service to lovers, but, above all, to give them a dream. The same dream I was lucky to have for myself.
What do the German couples look for when they choose Italy for their wedding?
The lovers especially look for authenticity. And they find it in Italy. They look for emotions, good food and high quality wine, prestigious locations and romantic settings. They contact me because they dream a unique wedding, perfect in every detail, and my biggest satisfaction is to make every desire they have come true.
Where, in Italy, do you organize weddings?
I organize weddings all over Italy, but my favorite region is Umbria, I’m connected with it by a very deep compatibility. I work a lot in Tuscany, in Sardinia with its wonderful beaches, in Sicily, Calabria, Liguria, Veneto and Lazio.
And you, Angela, what do you love about Italy?
I particularly love Italian people! They are very nice people, hospital, happy and proud of their country. I started to live in Italy sixteen years ago, and I met only people that did help and appreciate me. All the people I work with give everyday to the marrying couples unique emotions, and all together, we make them fall in love with Italy, its values and its traditions. Thanks to Italy and Italian people only, I can make many dreams come true!
