Insert by Beth & Chris – Malcesine Castle
Well, where should we start…
Firstly it’s got to be with a HUGE thank you to LGW, our day could not have been more perfect, and secondly sorry we haven’t got in touch sooner but our Honeymoon was well and truly needed xx
We were both very apprehensive to say the least about our big day as we had never been to Italy before so had no idea what Malcesine was going to be like. From the moment we arrived it was amazing was like a scene out of a movie – such an beautiful backdrop. We arrived and were both speechless we could not have chosen a more romantic, perfect place and we knew that when our wedding guests arrive too that they would be blown away just as we were, which was really important to us too. We stayed at the Hotel Castello on the lake front which was beautiful and the view from our suite was to die for. All of the staff are so friendly and helpful and made us feel right at home.
We met with LGW (Jac) on our second day (despite bumping into Gwen on our first day taking photos – It was funny as we both knew that it was her even though we had never seen a picture of her before) Jac was fab despite it absolutely hammering down with rain and we were all soaked. I don’t know how but even in the rain it was still so picturesque!!
We were put at ease straight away as Jac was very confident and explained exactly how our day was going to run which was all of my questions answered without having to ask. I had my hair and makeup done and the girls are amazing and very friendly (thank you so much to you both x). The hairdresser is really a one off, I had a few ideas how I wanted my hair but couldn’t decide and then she tried her own thing and it was just perfect, she really knows what she’s doing so if you are still unsure when you go out there then really there’s no need to worry.. you are in Fantastic hands and they will all make you feel like a princess.
The flower lady was great she did exactly what we were after despite only giving her a mixture of different pictures to go off. I really don’t know how to thank them enough.
The day our guests arrived the weather was beautiful, sun was shining and drink was flowing – LGW were great as they helped us arrange meals for us all together the whole time we were there – we ate at La Pace, the sister restaurant to this also and had our reception at La Voglia which was unreal, the food was excellent and the staff were great too. There was nothing left on people’s plates, which says it all!
We opted for the duo band for our reception – again very optimistic as we had not heard them play. They set up and as soon as they started to play everyone stopped talking to listen they were brilliant. They even learnt our wedding song and sang it for us which was really special to us both. The night was just perfect and everyone was singing and dancing away enjoying themselves there was never a time when people weren’t dancing.
I really hope that from all the comments left on LGW guestbook you can get an idea of how excellent, professional and stress free a wedding can be. LGW has the full package that any bride could wish for. Everyone is still talking about our wedding even though it was nearly a month ago now. We really would not have changed anything about the day for the world – and I believe that is all down to the LGW team.
Gwen you must be so proud of yourself and your team, we have had lots of wonderful comments on our photos ..there’s just too many to choose from!!!
We will definitely be back and will be shouting about LGW to everyone in the meantime.
Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts
Love to you all Beth & Chris (Henderson) xx
