Rita Ziino - Secular Celebrant

Rita Secular Celebrant

My name is Rita Ziino, I am a professional Sicilian secular celebrant.

I live in the province of Messina, and I mainly operate in Sicily and Calabria, but I can also travel throughout Italy.

I have been celebrating secular ceremonies since 2016.

Since 2020, I have been registered with Federcelebranti, a free and autonomous aggregation of professionals in the field of secular, humanist, symbolic, civil ceremonies, and more.

In October 2022, I obtained the Intertek/Accredia certification for UNI/Pdr 118.2:2021 which regulates the work of celebrants.

Today, secular ceremonies are increasingly requested and they are beautiful, emotional, authentic, and engaging, especially if written and conducted by people who have studied and gained experience, and possess the skills and knowledge to make those ceremonies unique.

Would you like to know how I got involved in non-traditional ceremonies?

In 2016, a friend of mine who owns a beautiful wedding venue asked me to replace a celebrant at a symbolic wedding ceremony. She thought I was suitable because of my romantic nature and empathy. I had no idea what she was asking, but I accepted because I enjoy challenging myself, expanding my horizons, and discovering new experiences. As I researched, I fell in love with these celebrations, filled with poetry and emotion.

From that first ceremony, which gave me immense joy, many others followed, each more beautiful and unique than the last.

When I officiate a wedding, I feel in my element. Want to know why?

Additionally, due to my empathetic nature, it comes naturally for me to listen and connect with the people in front of me.

That's why I write unique ceremonies. Just as no two people are alike, no two stories are identical, and each person's story deserves to be told in a different way.

Let me tell you how I work:

  • I gather the desires, tastes, and expectations of the clients in several meetings leading up to their special day, ensuring the ceremony is completely personalized.

  • I assist them in choosing the most suitable symbolic ritual for their celebration and personality, seamlessly integrating it into the ceremony alongside other elements.

  • I help them select readings and craft personalized vows, which have a profoundly moving impact during wedding ceremonies.

  • I engage with guests actively involved in the ceremony, assisting them in writing texts or instructing them in their roles during the ritual.

  • The role of music is crucial, carefully chosen to harmonize with each part of the celebration like a soundtrack. Song selections are agreed upon with the clients and the musicians who will accompany us.

  • I coordinate with other professionals involved in the ceremony: venues, wedding planners, florists, musicians, etc., ensuring the ceremony is well-structured, leaving nothing to chance.

So, what makes up a ceremony?

It's made of a unique story to tell, emotions, poetry, and music. When these elements are skillfully harmonized, they will move you deeply and stay with you for a life time.

Your love ceremony as you have always dreamed it.
A Secular Celebrant can make it unique and unforgettable
