About Me


Giusy D'Ambrosio I was born in the amazing and difficult city of Naples, Italy. I grew up on a land between the Volcano and the sea.

Both families took part in the wedding, we had 280 guests. I didn’t care about anything but my dress and bouquet. The dress was designed and tailor-made for me by Nuage – Naples. As to flower decorations, I told the florist I loved red roses. The only thing I cared for was reaching the altar! Maybe this is why today I do love organising every single detail of a wedding – my brides and grooms get the best out of my time and expertise.
