From the minute we decided we wanted to get married in Malcesine Castle we knew we were in great hands. That day we were shown around all the possibility’s that we could choose from for our big day. When we left Annabel I was in no doubt this was the place we would get married.
We then conversed with the wonderful LGW team via email, and no question was too silly for them to answer and believe me I had a few. The girls were wonderful in helping us organise our perfect day just the way we wanted it. They organised our music licence so my hubby’s friend could play at our reception including the other million other requests I had.
When we arrived at Malcesine and had our welcome meeting, I realised that the girls would have everything under control. Andrea was just wonderful and nothing was to much hassle. I knew then that I could relax and enjoy the build up to our day. I just knew that our big day would be perfect.
We took our own thistles over so I had some sort of Scottish item. Unfortunately I placed them in too much water and they were unusable, but I was not told about this instead the florist sent her mother up the mountain and picked me fresh thistles for my button holes, this was really touching and I appreciated it so much as they look fabulous in our photographs. Ladies the girls who do the hair and make are just wonderful they transformed all 7 of us. I have never felt or looked so good in all my life. They also took me back to the hairdressers in my tuk tuk to top up my lippy and spray some extra hairspray on 2 occasions throughout the day.
I highly recommend the lake side toast as it was great for the guests to get to know each other a little better and gave us the opportunity to get some fun photo’s without our guests getting bored. Talking of photo’s I have to praise the wonderful Gwen she is just marvellous. She completely put us at ease and made us laugh all day long. The photo’s are just wonderful and I cant stop looking at them. God only knows how we will manage to create an album, im going to end up with 10.
Unfortunately at the lake side my aunt fainted and was taken to hospital. Again Andrea was wonderful organising the ambulance, letting the boat know we would be a little late and informing all of our guests what was going on. Even with this little hiccup the day flowed perfectly.
I don’t even know where to begin with La Voglio. They were just fantastic from setting the tables and laying everything out exactly how I had imagined it, to the wonderful service and the gorgeous food everyone is still raving about. The staff were so friendly and again nothing was too much hassle. We order far too much food and asked if we could leave our dessert a little later. They allowed our musician to get started and then served us our delicious dessert outside.
If I had to do my day all over again I would not change a single thing. Everything was amazing I only wish I could do it in slow motion. My tip for brides to be is enjoy every minute, stop every now and again look around you and take it all in. I can not thank LGW ladies enough for all their help and organisation. Myself, my hubby and all of my guests are still raving about our wedding saying they have never been to a weeding like it. Also my bridesmaid now wants to get married there. It’ll be my turn to be bridesmaid I cant wait.
