Wow, where to begin!

I have genuinely struggled to find the words to thank the LGW ladies for the amazing support they provided us throughout the planning of our wedding and on the day. From my initial enquiry all the way through to the day we left Malcesine, they were amazing.

We originally chose LGW through a recommendation and I would not change one thing about our wedding day and the choices we made. The ladies were amazing in supporting us through the process and giving us all of the advice we needed, even if I did ask the same question 3 times!

Christian at La Voglia was outstanding, it really is the most spectacular restaurant and the team cannot do enough for you. The food was amazing and all of the guests are yet to stop talking about it!

The champagne toast, the bar on the harbour and the boat ride all made the day exactly what we wanted it to be and more. Our guests were overwhelmed, as were we! Reading all of the comments on the LGW facebook page was also a massive help, sometimes I did doubt my choices based on what others had reviewed however I genuinely believe that you should go with your heart. You will not be disappointed with any aspect you chose.

The hairdresser and make up artist were also fantastic, I took in pictures from Google and the hairstyles matched perfectly!

Everything ran so smoothly, as a Personal Assistant I like everything to be organised to within an inch of it’s life and it was wonderful to be able to sit back and let it all happen on the day without any input needed from me.

Annabel – I don’t even know where to start. We had our welcome meeting 2 days before the wedding and neither of us knew what to expect. Annabel took us to the town hall, the castle and showed us where the champagne toast etc would take place all in around an hour! She was just AMAZING!! She put us both at complete ease, we felt that it was a friend showing us around.

On the day, I started to panic just as I left the hotel hoping that everyone had made it to the castle etc. Low and behold, Gwen called Annabel and everyone was ready and waiting!

When Gwen arrived to take pictures at the hotel, I did feel slightly nervous as I know my dad and my partner aren’t lovers of the camera! This wasn’t an issue at all, Gwen put every single person in the wedding party at ease and the photos speak for themselves. They really are everything I hoped they would be and more.

Throughout the full day, Annabel was on hand to help. No sooner would I think of a question, she would appear as if by magic!! The whole wedding party are still raving about the amazing support. We will never be able to thank you enough.

Annabel stayed until around 8.30pm when we then had the most spectacular thunder storm. I know rain is the last thing you want on your wedding day but this was truly amazing. Everybody loved standing and watching the lightning over the lake and mountains, it was like something out of a film and dancing in the rain was a massive highlight! (I don’t think my dress agreed with this!)

Anyway I’m nearly done, honest!

The Tuk Tuk really is a must, everybody loved it and you really do feel like a princess driving through the cobbled streets with everybody cheering and wishing you well. We also had grandparents who were struggling a little with the cobbles but this was no issue and the Tuk Tuk also brought them to the Champagne Toast which they are yet to stop raving about :).

We can’t wait to return to Malcesine, I still look at the photos and can’t believe that is actually where we got married!! It is breath taking.

If you are thinking of getting married in Lake Garda, don’t think anymore and book it now! You honestly will never look back. We can’t recommend the LGW team enough.

Thank you all so much,
lots of love from Mr & Mrs Thompson xxx
