Dear LGW ladies!

We arrived home a couple of days ago following our honeymoon in Lake Como, which by the way doesn’t have a patch on Lake Garda and Malcesine !
I just needed to message you to thank you all so much for creating the most perfect day for both myself and Kevin and for all our guests, who were absolutely blown away by how perfect the day was and how smoothly it ran! Every single guest fell in love with Malcesine, the scenery and the people in it and all plan to return next year.
From the moment I contacted LGW for information about the wedding packages I felt in safe hands, the correspondence was always so quick and informative and I never once felt unsure about what was happening.
We first met Deborah in May when we went out to do a reccy of the town and run through everything for piece of mind, straight away we felt like old friends and even though you must meet hundreds of brides and grooms she instantly put us at ease and we had a laugh with her, we have stayed in touch ever since.
We were recommended to stay at the sporting residence in Val de Sogna and we first stayed there in May and fell in love with the place and the view. The staff, particularly Saida, were so helpful and friendly. When we arrived for the wedding with all our guests nothing was too much trouble!
Our wedding day was ‘out of this world’ it couldn’t have been any more perfect and I cannot put into words how we both felt on that day, it gives me goose bumps and tears now just thinking about it! Every single guest was in tears on the terrace as the atmosphere with the view, the violin & piano and Sara with her softly spoken Italian script, was the ultimate romantic experience, never in my life have I ever felt so special!
Gwen was so supportive and encouraging with the photography that everyone was at ease and relaxed and we loved every second of it, I think you may have done it a few times before Gwen! Haha! The photos are amazing!!
The tuk tuk was an awesome experience, we felt like celebrities going through the town and the driver even went back to pick up my parents so they didn’t have to walk down to the lakeside toast.
The lakeside toast was amazing, with gorgeous food, prosecco, water and juice and the guests were not expecting such a fabulous spread! The boat trip was perfect, we had chance to relax and reflect on the day so far and I even pulled my dress up to get a breeze up my skirt as it was such a lovely hot day!
Oh La Voglia! What can I say! Chritian and his team are true professionals, they made us feel relaxed, it wasn’t stuffy or formal, it was perfect! The food was sensational and every guest loved every course and couldn’t decide which one they liked the most as it was all mouthwatering!
The perfect end to a perfect day……I used the word ‘perfect’ a lot I know, but there is no other word to describe the most perfect and happiest day of our lives!
We cannot ever thank you all enough, especially Deborah who was beside us every step of the day but somehow managed to merge herself into the background so we weren’t actually aware she was there, I have huge love and respect for this lady!

So THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for creating this magical, memorable day, not just for us but for every single one of our guests too!
We have already booked to come back to stay at the sporting residence next August so we will pop in and say Hi!

Love to you all and thank you once again! Xxx
