We got married in Malcesine castle in June this year and I have to say that this was the most magical day of our lives. The venue is absolutely stunning, with amazing 360 degree views as your saying your vows. It is even nicer in real life than it is on the pictures. You can not beat this location for a wedding. If you want beautiful wedding pictures with stunning scenery in the background, then this place is for you.
Lake Garda Wedding planners are the most professional company we have ever dealt with. And the fact that this company is based abroad with such professionalism is phenomenal. There are no language barriers as Gwen the owner and photographer is British, and all the other girls speak fluent English. It only took one email and I knew that Malcesine was the venue for us and that LGW’s was the planners of choice.
When I emailed LGW for information and prices they sent a very informative email back answering every question possible. They also provided a full price list, which enables you to quickly work out costs against your budget.
When we arrived in Malcesine we have a very informative welcome meeting with Jac, one of the planners. She was absolutely amazing at planning the day and she made sure that everything single thing ran smoothly. She is very friendly and competent at her job. Nothing was too much trouble for her and it is clear that she thoroughly enjoys her job. All our guests commented on how brilliant she was.
The wedding day itself was just magical. It was a fairy tail from start to finish. And not only did we think this but all our guests did too. They all said that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Gwen was amazing at taking the photos. She is very friendly and professional and knows how to put you at ease. She clearly strives on professionalism and this company is a credit to her.
The musicians were fantastic throughout the ceremony and I would recommend everyone to book them as the atmosphere would not have been the same without them.
After the ceremony we had the lake side champagne toast. This was fabulous and all the guests loved it. The canopies we really nice and the setting is beautiful. We were so glad that we had booked this. We also paid for a boat trip to take us to the restaurant La Vogila. This is so unique as there are not many weddings available where you could travel by boat. I can’t recommend this enough.
As for La Vogila, the restaurant I am not surprised that this is number 1 on trip advisor. It is in a fantastic location beside the lake and the views are stunning. There is a restaurant side which is covered but with open views of the lake and an outdoor chill out section. The food is amazing, the best we have had in Italy. It was that nice, that we returned for another meal with all our family on the last night of the holiday. The staff are so attentive and provide a fantastic service and the chill out area where you sit after the meal is fantastic. You can have a band, DJ or simply listen to your ipod whilst relaxing in the chill out area. What more could you ask for.
The hairdresser and make-up artist that LGW use are absolutely fantastic. There is nothing that they can’t do. The hair dresser put clip in extensions in my hair to enable me to have the style I had found on a picture. It looked amazing when she had finished it. The make-up artist Jacqui is brilliant. She covered all my acne and provided brilliant advice. She also did my nails which looked gorgeous. These services are a must if you want to look beautiful on the day so don’t hesitate to book them.
The day ran smoothly from start to finish and I can’t thank LGW enough for making our day so perfect.
