Gelato Galore: Turning Weddings into Sweet Soirees with Venessa Miller

Welcome to another exciting episode of the Just as Planned TV and Podcast Show, where we bring you innovative ideas to make your wedding day truly unforgettable. I’m your host and professional wedding MC, Nathan Cassar, and today we’re delving into the sweet world of weddings with a special guest: Venessa Miller, the creative mind behind Carrelli D’Amore.

Venessa’s journey into the gelato business began with her own wedding planning, where she encountered a lack of personalised service in the industry. Determined to fill this gap, Venessa and her husband Shaun launched Carrelli D’Amore, a brand built on dedication to exceptional service and affordability. What started as a single gelato cart has now blossomed into a fleet of mobile carts catering to a variety of events.

But Venessa’s story doesn’t stop there. A primary school teacher turned gelato entrepreneur, she never imagined herself venturing beyond the classroom. However, fate had other plans when her husband built gelato carts for their wedding. From nervous beginnings to a thriving business, Venessa’s journey is a testament to passion and perseverance.

During our conversation, Venessa will share invaluable insights on revolutionizing your wedding experience with unique dessert options. We’ll explore how incorporating a gelato cart can not only cut costs but also add a touch of magic to your special day. From creating the perfect ‘wow factor’ to personalizing your wedding menu with bespoke flavours, Venessa will provide expert tips to make your celebration truly memorable.

So, if you’re ready to sweeten up your wedding plans and learn how to create a dessert experience your guests will never forget, you’re in for a treat. Venessa, welcome to the show!


Venessa’s passion and love for serving gelato started when she started making enquiries to hire a gelato cart for her own wedding. “I was completely dissatisfied with the lack of personable service when corresponding with various businesses” states Venessa. Discovering that there was a significant gap in the market, Venessa decided to create her own gelato cart.

With the help of Shaun, Venessa’s husband, the Carrelii D’Amore brand was born. This husband and wife team display commitment and dedication to growing their business and providing a friendly experience. They have successfully expanded their services to create a fleet of carts which cater for more than just gelato. Venessa and Shaun believe in honest and affordable pricing which can be tailored for event budgets
