We just want to say a huge thank you to everyone at Lake Garda Weddings. We originally visited Malcesine for the day 2 years ago when we went on a summer holiday in Garda. We happened to be at the castle when a bride arrived and we both said what an amazing venue it would be for a wedding but didn’t ever expect to be able to afford to get married there. Later that year we got engaged over Christmas and I believe within a month we had booked our wedding at the castle for 2018.
We initially looked through the website and found from making our initial enquiry through to getting married that LGW were attentive, responsive, knowledgeable and completely capable of organising our perfect day. Throughout the planning all the information they provided was set out logically and was easy to digest with various options and recommendations offered. All of our emails were responded to quickly and our queries were fully answered. There was no need to chase them up and they gave us plenty on notice and information on any documents or decisions they needed from us. Leading up to the wedding we came across several people who had either got married in Malcesine through LGW or had been a guest at a wedding and no one had anything other than high praise for them. We were constantly reassured we were in the best hands, that it was the best wedding they had been to and telling us they wanted to go back and do it all over again. My only concern leading up to the day was that the whole process had been so smooth and easy something must have been forgotten (of course it had not).
We met with Sara at our welcome meeting and found her so reassuring before the wedding. It was a delight to have her with us on our big day and all our friends and family loved her. We cannot thank her enough for all she did before and during the day. She was the perfect person to plan the day and ensured all our guests knew where they needed to be and that they had everything they needed.
Having spent hours looking through the website at the photos of other weddings we asked Gwen to photograph our day. Neither of us are keen on having photos taken and were worried about being taken away from our guests to have photos, detracting from the day or at receiving forced and unnatural pictures. From meeting me at my hotel Gwen put me and my mum at ease and had loads of tips and tricks for making us look our best. Then once we got to the castle We got all the shots at the castle we wanted and the individual shots fit in seamlessly with the day so we never felt like we were missing out or neglecting our guests. Everyone at home has commented on how amazing the photos are and how skilled Gwen is.
We chose to have the champagne toast by the lake after a 2:00 wedding and the food and setting was exceptional. We returned to La Pace for our evening meal and everyone of our guests commented on the how good the food was and how much of it they got. The cake afterwards was absolutely delicious as well. The restaurant was so accommodating and we even got serenaded by a impromptu violinist.
We also want to say a huge thank you to the florist the LGW recommended and organised for us. We sent lots of photos of what we wanted and were blown away on the day at how amazing they looked. All of our flowers were taken from the castle to our evening reception by Sara and we then managed to take most of them back to our hotel so we could admire them for as long as possible. We paid a supplement for the peonies and absolutely loved them. Again LGW excelled even and ensured that we got what we wanted without us having to stress or worry.
We had already fallen in love with Malcesine on our first visit and now all of our guests have too. We couldn’t have asked for a better day or a better service from LGW. We would recommend LGW to anybody and couldn’t imagine having a better wedding anywhere else in the world. Thank you again.
