Dear Annabelle, Gwen & the rest of the Lake Garda wedding team,
Firstly, let me simply say thank you for making our dream wedding a reality. You truly are the best at what you do and I honestly have never met more down to earth yet professional people!
From the day we first put in our booking request form to our long awaited wedding day; everything has always been so transparent and clear as to what needed to be done and when. Not only did it take the mass stress out I planning a wedding, it allowed us to really enjoy the planning stage of the wedding and the build up. You all have been amazing at responding rapidly to my 100000 emails (sorry about that 😂) and we never once felt out of control or unsure of anything!
The day itself was absolutely incredible, literally a dream come true is all I can say! You are made to feel as though you are the only ever couple to get married there which is such a warming feeling to have and definitely makes you feel special on your big day!
The wedding literally runs like clock work. Everyone knows everyone, they are all brilliant in their own fields. My biggest worry was the hair and make up as I’m so particular about them, I literally had NOTHING to worry about. Elena the make up artist is beautiful inside and out and can definitely relay that onto your face 😂 the hair dresser is also incredible and nothing is ever impossible with either of them, just perfect! Our guests were absolutely amazed with the day as it is nothing like a wedding in the UK. The castle is breathtaking, lakeside toast is a great respite and a brilliant way to show off the lake and the boat ride really breaks up the day and offers something unique for the guests. Once again, all involved in making those parts of the day happen were so professional and genuinely seem so happy and excited to be a part of your day!
La Voglia was everything and more. From meeting with Christian the day before to discuss how we wanted the restaurant decorated we were instantly put at ease. He listened to our vision, offered us advice as to how he would suggest and was just all round so professional and helpful. The food at La Voglia was absolutely immense! Honestly we have never been so besotted by a risotto before (deffo worth going on your wedding menus FYI) the drinks were flowing and the food came out perfectly timed, all little things that really set the tone of your day!
Annabelle was the perfect wedding planner literally just perfect. She’s firm yet comforting and you just know she will make sure your day runs without a hitch. She literally goes above and beyond and nothing you request is ever too much or too difficult for her. She even made my daughter and my godson (who were convinced it was there wedding at the ages of 3 & 4 😂) a little wedding certificate for them to take home! You really form such a good bond and we are so happy and thankful to Annabelle beyond words for everything she did for us for our wedding, because of you it was truly everything we ever imagined ❤️
Gwen is the biggest bundle of excitement, enthusiasm and energy. She had us in stitches all day and just really made us feel relaxed whilst doing our wedding photos. Gwen is so artistic and creative and she really goes above and beyond to capture memories for you to last a lifetime! We also had James Stratford (bond 😂) doing our videography and then two together just bounce of each other so well, a dream team to have capturing your day ❤️
All in all, I am writing this review on the plane home as they really deserve so much praise for the amazing job they do. Thank you Lake Garda weddings for making our dream wedding come true and we can’t wait to come back and annoy you again in the very near future 😂
All our love,
Danny, Amy & Arabella
