Even VIP people ask for him, as Alessia Marcuzzi did. We interviewed Luca Melilli, sicilian wedding designer and founding member of Panta Rhei, scenografie per eventi.
What does a wedding designer do?
The wedding day is an event, both intimate and public.
Therefore, its appearance is important and it must be planned to perfection, starting from the identification of an unque and personal theme: this is the job of the Wedding Designer.
The wedding designer is, first of all, an expert able to plan, organize and coordinate your wedding, taking care of every detail, even from a stylistic and aesthetic point of view. It all starts from the idea, sometimes clear other times a little confused, that the bride and groom have regarding their wedding day. Then, is up to the wedding designer to understand and make it a reality.
