We would like to offer a massive thank you to the whole team at LGW for organising the most wonderful wedding day! The service was outstanding and extremely professional throughout the whole process. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect in every way and it completely surpassed our expectations and more.
Firstly, the communication between LGW and ourselves over the past 8 months in the run up to the wedding was exceptional. Any email sent/questions asked (no matter how complex or trivial) were responded to immediately by Gwen or her wedding planners. I was especially grateful for the reassurance provided in the final weeks approaching the wedding, as pre-wedding nerves kicked in!
Every service provided was brilliant! Titi and Jacqueline were great fun to work with and the hair and make-up services were superb and extremely professional! I thoroughly enjoyed all of the trips to the hairdressers on several occasions – the trial, together with all the female guests on the morning of the wedding and also the touch-up stops before/after the ceremony! The flowers were just stunning and exactly what I had asked for. The ceremony on the castle terrace was beautiful and such a romantic location for a wedding! The tuk-tuk was so much fun and such a unique experience – travelling through the cobbled streets with everyone cheering and clapping was such a special moment shared with both my father beforehand and with my husband! The champagne toast at La Pace was the perfect place for everyone to relax and a great spot for the 6 young boys to run around and play. The boat trip was fabulous and provided a breezy break from the summer temperature and arriving at La Voglia by boat was fun!
La Voglia is a stunning venue in a secluded area just outside Malcesine with a picturesque view across the lake. Christian was extremely accommodating and his staff were highly attentive throughout. The tables were laid out perfectly the way I had planned. The food was outstanding – the six courses were beautifully presented, delicious and the perfect size for our guests to manage. Another amazing feature of La Voglia was the garden patio/chill out area. Our guests enjoyed relaxing here after the wedding. The children were also able to run around happily in this area – they even went for a swim in the lake just outside the restaurant to keep them occupied! Taxis and mini-buses were arranged to transport guests home afterwards.
Our wedding planner Jac was fantastic and we cannot thank her enough for ensuring that our wedding day was extremely well coordinated. Our guests have commented on how wonderful, friendly and attentive Jac was throughout the whole wedding and they have especially praised her excellent and natural manner with the children – she was just brilliant with them! When we met Jac at our welcome meeting, she was friendly, fun and professional from the start and everything was explained clearly. We appreciated visiting the various locations and services beforehand to confirm the arrangements for our day. Jac was beautifully turned out for the ceremony and provided an excellent service throughout the whole day.
Thank you again to Gwen and all of her staff at LGW for the most amazing and memorable wedding day we could have hoped for!
