To Gwen & LGW ladies,
It has taken me this long to write my ‘thank you’ e-mail as firstly I don’t want to accept the wedding is over and I will no longer be sending daily e-mails to you all, and secondly I can’t put into words how grateful we are for arranging our failytale wedding in Malcesine Castle! We really had the most amazing wedding organised by the best wedding planners.
After seeing a photograph of a beautiful castle on a lake I realised that was the venue where I wanted to get married. I had no idea at that time that it was Malcesine Castle, Lake Garda. When I realised where it was, a friend of mine recommended LGW and I made my first contact last July to be told by Gwen that there was no availability for the dates that I had requested. I was devastated however Gwen contacted me again within a few days to say 4th August 2014 was now available and I immediately paid the deposit and booked our amazing holiday. We stayed at the Majestic Palace as it was big enough for most of our wedding guests to stay at. It was an amazing hotel and would highly recommend for those of you staying with children as there are adult quiet areas to sunbathe and a kids pool for families.
The ladies at LGW were so professional and answered any queries immediately via e-mail.
The Wedding day was more than we could have ever hoped for. It really was perfect. All of our guests said that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Andrea made sure the guests knew where they had to be at each time in the day and we didn’t have to worry about anything. The Tuk Tuk ride made us feel like royalty, the castle was an amazing setting for a wedding, the lakeside toast was perfect, the boat trip and la Voglia just blew us away! The meal at La Voglia was out of this world.
Gwen took almost 1000 photographs, it’s hard to choose which ones to frame! There are so many lovely photographs. We were made to feel special by everyone, including the locals who clapped and cheered us as we left the castle. Although there are weddings daily in the summer months, we felt like ours was unique. We can’t wait to return to Malcesine as it is such a perfect place.
As for the weather, you can’t control it, it was a horrendous thunder storm and grey skies the day before our wedding but perfect blue skies on our actual wedding day, not a rain drop in sight! The weather is changeable and don’t look at the forecast as it’s always wrong!
For all of the remaining brides/grooms for 2014 and future brides/grooms, hope you have an amazing wedding, you are in safe hands and I am so jealous as I would love to do it all again. I have the happy memories and fantastic photographs to look at to remember our special day!
