Dear Annabel, Gwen and all LGW ladies
I firstly am so sorry that this has taken so long, but there are no words to really explain how much you did for us on what was truly the best day of our lives, and I can confidently say the best wedding that any of my friends and family have ever been to. From the moment I emailed you two years ago enquiring about our wedding day, I could not have imagined how incredible the reality of what we experienced, you were all so unbelievably patient, professional, understanding and knew exactly how to reassure me on all questions and queries… I know there were quite a few!
My guests commented on how fantastic the day flowed, it really was fabulous, and they thought that it must of been a nightmare to have pulled it off – but that couldn’t have been further from the truth and it is because of you girls. The advice you gave us was spot on and nothing was too much trouble. The day went so smoothly because of the professional service and experienced wedding planner, beautiful Annabel, that ensured every detail was just perfect, your character and charm made me and Dale feel so relaxed about it all knowing you had it all in hand, and gorgeous Gwen with her witty presence and superb photography skills – you are both an outstanding duo of organisation and personalities that we are so happy to have shared our day with. I really miss being in contact with you both, as I feel like over the years we have gotten to know each other and it was so lovely to finally meet you in person and spend time with you all. I wish I had you here to organise our UK Celebration! It’s all on me this time, safe to say I am no where near as chilled out as I was about the plans for Italy. I will send you some pics in July, and will definitely mention how fabulous you both were in our speech.
Like I said, words cannot describe how grateful we are and all of the guests commented on how lovely you both were, and it really did feel like you were part of the guests. I adore you both and cannot wait to come and see you next Easter for our first anniversary when that wedding season kicks off again, maybe we will even see a wedding. You will always be in our hearts and when we look back and remember our perfect day, we will think just as fondly of you two as all of our other guests who made it so so special. Can’t believe I am actually emotional writing this!
I love our pictures, and cannot stop looking at them, we would recommend Gwen, the greatest photographer, to anyone who is thinking of having pics of the day, and Annabel is the best, coolest and most quirky wedding planner, we were sooo lucky to have found you. All future couples will be blown away and you have definitely made the right decision to chose Lake Garda Weddings, their knowledge and experience is second to none, whatever package you decide on it is without a doubt the most fantastical fairytale wedding anyone can ever dream of. I wish I could do it all over again and will always treasure those precious moments forever. Take care girls xx
Thank you once again, sending massive hugs and all our love xxx

Alison & Marcus – What they said! :)

To the Lake Garda Weddings team – We want to say thank you for helping us arrange such a nice ceremony. We booked a ceremony essentials package, and without this extra help, I would have probably lost my mind! You all are very knowledgeable in this business and pretty much every request was attended to and we ultimately had an extremely memorable and dream-like wedding! The boat rides were fabulous and our transport throughout the 2 days was absolutely phenomenal – thank you for all your help with these pieces of the puzzle! We loved getting married in Torri del Benaco castle and having Deborah and Jac there to coordinate made the entire afternoon run extremely smoothly! It was perfect! Thank you again! Allison and Marcus

Thank you to Gwen and Jac for making our wedding day so perfect. It was better than we ever imagined. Guests thoroughly enjoyed their day and said it was the best wedding they have ever been to. My groom and I literally turned up on the day with our wedding rings and all was sorted by the LGW team. Thank you for everything you have done, you gave us a hassle free, perfect wedding. You are flawless!
Love Ruaridh and Rebecca . Liverpool x

Hi ladies – just wanted to say a huge thank you for making Our wedding last Thursday such an amazing day. It was better than we ever could have imagined and it’s something our guests and ourselves are going to remember for a long time. Everything was perfect, the castle was amazing, La Voglia was a wonderful location for the reception – Christian and team could not have done more for us, and the food was amazing! None of this would have happened without your amazing team and their hard work – we can’t thank you enough! In particular Jac & Gwen who made our day run so smoothly.

Hi Ladies,
As Gwen posted on facebook earlier this week about it being only 2 months until wedding season starts again, it made us realise that it has in fact been 5 months since our wedding and we had still not emailed our thanks to you. Please don’t take our tardiness as any indication at all of our appreciation of you arranging what was, quite frankly,the best day of our lives.
For Stuart and I, our wedding was always going to be abroad but deciding where was always going to be a challenge. We have travelled all over the world and only somewhere truly fabulous would do for us. I (Tina) had Italy in my heart from the start and as we both love the English Lake District so much, the Italian lakes was a natural place to look. I had been doing some research whilst Stuart had been at work one day and, on his return, I said that I had found what looked to be a beautiful place called Malcesine. Jokingly, Stuart said “if we can get married in a castle, we can get married there” and that’s where is all began..
That evening I sent a couple of emails off to wedding planners with tentative enquiries; first thing the following morning Gwen had emailed me back and by the time the other wedding planner emailed me back much later, I had already exchanged several emails with Gwen and LGW had our seal of approval. Within a matter of days, the date was chosen and the wedding was booked.
Getting married somewhere you have never visited and having your big day arranged by people who don’t know you is a massive thing but throughout the whole process we were put at ease by the LGW ladies. No question was ever too silly, even if we’d asked it 10 times already!
The idea of a private facebook groups is such a fabuous idea, it was a godsend, it made me feel so much more relaxed knowing that there were tons of past brides who had also put their trust in LGW and who always had such nice things to say about them, and having questions answered by people who are best placed to answer them, having been through it all themselves.
When we arrived in Malcesine, we were blown away by it’s beauty and knew that we’d chosen the right place to marry. Our welcome meeting with the lovely Annabelle went perfectly smoothly (even though we had slight hangovers from an indulgent day/night before).
The day of the wedding came and we awoke to a huge thunderstorm. I thought I would be bothered by it but I totally wasn’t. The hair and make up ladies did a fabulous job – keeping calm even when the electric cut out briefly due to the storm!
Annabelle was with us throughout the day, as was Gwen doing the photography. All of our guests commented on how lovely they both were – total professionals and excellent at what they do, making us all feel like we were their friends rather than clients.
The day went without a hitch, even the rain during the ceremony didn’t ruin a thing - and in fact our guests commented on how memorable it made it. And as Annabelle said to me “in Italy, a wet bride is a lucky bride” Although admittedly, we were both pleased when the sunshine came back out and allowed us to have our photos and boat ride in the sunshine!
We had the toast in the castle, the food was lovely and the drinks were plentiful. Annabelle recommended a lovely bar next to the lake for drinks before the boat ride – a great recommendation, our own private terrace with beers as large as our heads!
La Voglia was fantastic. Christian did such an amazing job of making the place look exactly as we had hoped, the tables looked beautiful. The food was out of this world. Our guests raved about the pear and cheese ravioli for ages.
The photographs taken by Gwen were fabulous, all 1227 of them!
In summary, we had the best day of our lives and our guests enjoyed every moment.
We have no doubt that we will return to Malcesine again in the future.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us to have our perfect wedding in such a beautiful place..
With thanks,
Stuart and Tina Clarke

Hello Lake Garda Weddings.
We have been dreading a long time to write this letter because there really are no words that can explain what a wonderful day or days we experienced down in Malcesine, Italy. We can sit here all day to try explain and put down in words how lovely it was.
I remember the first email we sent to Lake Garda Weddings. Me and my wife wanted to have a special wedding as possible. And what way of doing this better than to celebrate our marriage in the land where love and romance was born. We found the website on Google and emailed nothing special, Just a couple questions concerning location etc. but what we got back from the lovely Gwen was more than we could ever have hoped. One email made the decision easy… Malcesine andLake Garda Weddings is definitely the place and coordinators we want.
From that day on the lovely help and suggestions we got was just absolutely brilliant!
Our coordinator Andrea… Ooh lovely Andrea! What would we have done without you?! All the help we got from you just through the emails were perfect. Not to forget the first time we met and went through the major details. Both Linda And I felt that we were in such safe hands! Those safe hands guided us all the way from long before the ceremony to the lake side toast. Then to the lovely boat ride which brought us to our lovely dinner which we can’t decide if it was out of this world or just plain magic. All in all she did a absolutely amazing job of making our day so memorable. All our guests loved you! Thank you for making there day memorable as well. Thank you so much lovely Andrea!
Let’s not forget the cherry on the pie, Gwen! Everything was so perfect! The photos that you took of us that day are just gorgeous! People still ask who our photographer was and if they could get her number. They look like they are out of a Vogue magazine, Wedding Edition!! Just bloody brilliant! Like we said earlier in this letter… There are no words that explain how happy we are that we chose Lake Garda Weddings. Me and my lovely wife discussed if there was one little thing we would change if we could that day, what would it be? Both of us looked at each other after a long and quiet pause… And we both just couldn’t think about one single thing that could have been better! So I thank you once again, thank you for making our wedding day the most amazing day ever!
With endless love,
Linda & Thomas Trygg
P.S. See you in September for our 1 year anniversary! Xoxo

Hi Jac, Gwen and the team, Wow I can?t believe it has taken me this long to sit and write your thank you letter, I think it is just struggling to accept that our day has now been and gone, it was so perfect I just want to do it all over again! Myself & Alex were very lucky when we got engaged that we both wanted the same thing which was an abroad wedding where we could just invite our closest friends & family and really spend time on the day with them and with each other, so as soon as I had the ring on my finger I was away with the google searches and found your website. From the very very start the service we received was so good, quick responses and when we went out for our trip to see the place and meet you ladies before finalising the date Jac was brilliant at showing us round and explaining how the day would run and answering any questions we had, we made up our minds very quickly that this was going to be perfect for us. Throughout the process friends and family were asking me if I was getting stressed and I can honestly say not at all, my queries were answered quickly and nothing at all was too much trouble, considering it was my wedding day I just felt like there was no question of it being perfect and I am known for being a bit of a control freak at work and an expert worrier so that is some achievement and just testament to how amazing you ladies really are. Arriving in Malcesine we met with Jac and she took us round everywhere to meet with all the suppliers and finalise details, again, we felt so at ease and just felt like we were walking round with an old friend, again queries were answered quickly, not that we had many as she was so on the ball we didn?t need to question anything! It is such a magical place and seeing the weddings in the run up was sooo exciting. Then the big day, well there are literally not enough words I can use to describe how perfect it all was, magical is how I have been describing it to people back here and is a word our families have been using. Myself & my bridesmaids had our hair done and they are experts, all our hair stayed perfect all day despite it being quite windy and looked amazing, they also did a lovely blow dry for my mum so made her feel special as mother of the bride. The make up lady (so sorry I can?t remember her name!) is also a miracle worker, she did it perfectly and she is also really really nice and puts you at ease. The day just ran so smoothly, I felt completely relaxed from start to finish and one of my favourite moments was taking a step back and seeing all my closest friends & family enjoying themselves and looking so happy ? that was exactly what we had wanted from our day and we just loved every single second of it. Jac did a brilliant job of keeping our party in order and getting them all where they needed to be and all our guests were singing her praises! The ceremony was so special and the boat trip and lakeside toast too, then onto La Voglia where we had the nicest food I have ever had, considering we had 6 courses I don?t think there was a scrap of food left on anyones plate and the setting is so perfect and romantic. Gwen, we cannot thank you enough for the photos, neither of us are big on having our photos taken but you made us feel so relaxed and asking us before if there was anything that we didn?t want / did want was a really nice touch, my slightly complicated family situation was handled perfectly and after 6 years of my nan wanting a photo of her and all her grandchildren you took some perfect ones and I am soooo excited about presenting her with a framed one for Christmas. Everyone has commented on how beautiful they are and how quickly you get them back, we couldn?t believe we had our discs and prints the next day and then the DVD as soon as we were home, amazing service as we had heard so many stories of people who get married in England waiting months and months for their albums. We had fun going round the castle with our maid of honour ?fluffy? and best man ?bestie? and I love that our photos look so natural because we were both so relaxed and enjoying ourselves, you really inject some fun into them and it works so well, some of my favourites are us and the bridesmaids / best men just having fun, jumping and paddling in the lake. There are so so many perfect ones we just need to decide which ones to put up in the house! J Last but not least I need to mention the facebook group as it is such a good idea, to be able to share ideas / thoughts / random queries with each other and see the weddings taking place in the run up to yours, it just cements the thought in your head that your day is going to be perfect when you see how happy everyone else is with their days. Well I still feel like despite the fact I have rambled on I still haven?t said thank you enough, it just doesn?t do you justice, by far the best wedding planners I have ever come across and I cant recommend you enough to anyone. Any brides with your wedding still to come you couldn?t be in safer hands. We are already planning our honeymoon to Italy for next summer as we couldn?t have one straight away so will be back for a week and will pop in and say hello. Ah, now I really have to admit to myself our day is done. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts. Lorienne & Alex Hawkins.
