Insert by Emma & Chris Hunter – Malcesine
Firstly, sorry this has taken so long but I wanted to get it perfect!! I’m now sitting on my laptop in my sunset villa in the Maldives on our honeymoon, completely relaxed and I can give this review the time it deserves!!
WOW WOW WOW!!! What can we say!!!!! Annabel, a friend for life!!! Thank you so much to LGW for the most magical day of our lives!!! We couldn’t even have imagined it to have been as amazing as it was!
Right from the very start, 18 months ago when I first emailed, we got all the information that we needed so quickly. This made it an easy decision to book with LGW, complete experts.
We visited in April 2014 and fell in love with Malcesine! I was in tears as we drove the lake knowing this was where we had chosen to marry! We met with the girls and we were shown round the route of our day, again a fantastic service. All the girls so welcoming and had answers for all of our questions! Complete professionals!! It was weird even on this trip, the season before our actual wedding, we felt a connection with Annabel.
We visited again in Sept 2014 for our parents to see Malcesine and they all fell in love with it as much as we did.
Our last trip before the wedding was in May 2015, we actually managed to take a suitcase (wedding stuff) over with us on this trip and our hotel (Casa Barca) stored it for until the wedding, amazing service!! During this trip we met the lovely Annabel again and she really did become a friend, so many good recommendations. It was this trip we found the Rock Café!!! Amazing!! Dimitri is a legend with our wedding party!!
So we arrived a few days before our wedding in July and met up with Annabel again. We went through our welcome meeting, done the legal bit and then paid the bills which could be paid. Annabel made us feel so at ease and everything was explained. Nothing was rushed and she really did spend hours with us as we enjoyed catching up!
The day itself, what can we say!!!!
From Francesca (makeup) and Tizi (hairdresser) who really did work their magic on all of the girls and Lucas the TUK TUK driver who picked my Mum and I up from the hotel. The service was amazing!! The TUK TUK was an experience in itself, I didn’t soak it up as much on the way to the castle as I was abit nervous but being taken through the town with my husband with everyone standing and clapping was just amazing. I really did feel like a Princess!!!
Gwen, what can I say!! The photos are amazing!!! We absolutely loved how quick you were and there was no messing about. I knew exactly what I wanted and you pulled it out the bag! Chris was abit apprehensive about the photos taking too long but everything was done and we were enjoying the lakeside toast with our family and friends in just over an hour!! It makes us wonder what take so long in Scotland!!!
La Pace, Mohammed, an absolute gentleman!! The lakeside toast was fantastic and Prosecco free flowing!!
We took the half hour boat trip as we had a few children, didn’t want anyone needing the loo….. this again was amazing, a much needed breeze for everyone!!!
La Voglia, wow!!! The best meal we have ever eaten and that even comes from some of our guests!! Christian and his staff were amazing!!! Everything went like clockwork, the staff were there to meet ever need, however it was like they were invisible!! Absolute professionals!!
We had the band, Style Libero!!!! Fantastic!!! Had everyone dancing all night!! Brilliant!!!
After La Voglia, we have booked the Rock Cafe!!! This again was another amazing experince!!! Chris and I walked in and it was just out of this world!!! The party really did start here!!! We all partied into the wee small hours!! Totally recommend Dimitri and his wife, fantastic!!!
Leaving our little fairy god mother to last, Annabel, what can I say, we love you and thank you!!! Everything went like clock work, not many people can say that there is absolutely nothing they would change about their special day! Everything and we mean everything, was perfect!!! You really are a star, a complete perfectionist and true professional!!! So many of our guests have told us, (we need to keep it quiet so not to be rude to others) it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to! Quite a few have already booked up to come back to Malcesine already!!!!
Thank you, stay in touch and we’ll see you soon, love Chris and Emma (Mr & Mrs H)
