Stacy and Scott McEwing married 18th July 2013 from Scotland.
Hi to the Lake Garda Team, Sorry for such a late reply, it has been such a hectic return home and the Lake Garda blues have certainly hit hard! We got married on 18th July 2013 in Malcesine. It was an amazing wedding day and Malcesine is a magical place, romantic, spectacular views and just an incredible place to be. We heard about Lake Garda Weddings through a friend and began researching about weddings in Italy. From the first email we knew Lake Garda Weddings were a professional company who we could trust to help plan our wedding. Scott and I had a week in Malcesine before our wedding, which was great as Scott and I explored the local area including the castle and met Annabel who immediately put our minds at ease. The welcome meeting was full of information and every aspect of the wedding is taken care of. We visited the castle, hairdresser, florist, La Pace and the town hall. All very exciting and after the welcome meeting the day started to become real. . The hairdresser was fantastic! She managed to do all 6 of us in 2 hours. We were all very impressed. I loved mine. It was also a nice touch to leave the veil there and on the way to the castle the Tuk Tuk stops and the veil is fitted. I felt like a celebrity!
Just before our wedding there was a thunderstorm. The Castle staff indicated we couldn’t have the wedding on the terrace and prepared the room inside. Scott let Annabel know that the guests were keen to stay on the terrace no matter what the weather as they knew how important the terrace was to us. Luckily Annabel worked her magic with the castle officials, and the wedding was to take place on the terrace! It was an amazing ceremony, one which I will remember forever. And I thank Annabel for allowing the wedding to take place on the terrace. (And it stopped raining just in time)
During the ceremony the musicians were excellent. A big thank you to Gwen for her amazing photography, the pictures are beautiful, We had so much fun roaming around the castle looking for the places I had seen on the facebook group page. As we left the castle, we were hit with a blast of confetti and an ice cream cone! Fantastic! The Tuk Tuk driver could not have been nicer and helped me in and out of the Tuk Tuk. The ride down to the Lake Side Toast was an experience! We felt like celebrities as everyone was cheering us and clapping. I would recommend the Tuk Tuk. The Lake side toast was lovely and the food was really tasty. It was a lovely location. After the toast, there was a lovely walk through the town to the boat, with a lot more cheering. We were lead by Annabel who made sure all the guests were there, leaving us with little to worry about. On arrival at La Voglia, canapés were waiting for us which were tasty and the staff couldn’t do enough for the guests. The food was out of this world, I have never tasted food so good, just incredible, the guests have not stopped talking about it since we got home. We had the best day of our lives and could not have asked for a better day. You are in good hands with Lake Garda Weddings. They really do think of every little detail and every finishing touch. Thank you so much for the magical fairytale wedding and me and Scott will be back to visit very soon! Love to all the team. Stacy and Scott x x
