Dear Annabelle and the Lake Garda Weddings Team,
Firstly I am so sorry it has taken us so long to write this, things have been very hectic since we have been back, with further home celebrations, and another family wedding!
Well where to begin! We would just like to say a HUGE thank you, we can't put into words how grateful we are, from the day we booked to the wedding day and beyond, you and the team were amazing.
We arrived in Malcesine and met Annabelle for our welcome meeting despite the awful weather we felt completely at ease and when you said we just had to turn up and say "I do" you were not joking! that moment everything fell into place and we couldn't believe our dream wedding was about to become a reality.
The wedding day, WOW is all I can say, everything ran like clockwork and our guests are still talking about how smooth the day was and how professional and lovely Annabelle was!
Hair and makeup - well I don't think there's anything these ladies can't do! they got myself, 2 bridesmaids, 2 mums 2 nan's and 2 wedding guests! everyone showed them pictures of what they want and Francesca helped the mums with the colours to suit their dress colours. They were friendly and helpful and I didn't even have to get out of the Tuk Tuk for them to put my veil in and touch up my lipstick!
The tuk tuk, well it has to be the best way to get to and from your wedding venue! Driving through the streets of Malcesine we felt like royalty! everyone was clapping and cheering and shouting their congratulations it was really special and something we will never forget, and that's just the start, arriving at the castle and seeing my husband waiting for me at the end of the aisle was truly amazing. The music, the ceremony, flowers everything was perfect and live up to and beyond expectations.
After our crazy Irish guest, helped (or hindered- I'm not quite sure which) Annabelle rally the guest, plus a few extra members of the public, we walked out the castle doors to a huge cheer, and made our way down to the lakeside toast, which was a perfect way to mingle with our guests and take a moment with a glass of bubbles to appreciate the day. They say in Lake Garda you have the best forms of transport, and getting to La Voglia was no different, our guests still cant believe we went by boat!
La Voglia, OMG the food, the service, everything was spectacular, we had 6 courses, which on reflection was far too much food, but it was so good, no one wanted to leave anything on the plate and ate everything anyway! Christian and his team did the most amazing job of looking after us, nothing was too much trouble, its the most perfect place to enjoy your evening overlooking the lake.
We wish would could go back and do it all again, we truly had the most amazing day which we will never forget and that wouldn't have been possible without your amazing team. We could never thank you enough for helping us plan our dream wedding! you made everything so easy and nothing was too much trouble. Our guests are still talking about how amazing our day was!
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much, we look forward to popping in again when we visit in the future, Malcesine is a beautiful place, future bride and grooms you are safe hands, these ladies are amazing!
All our love
Becky and James - Mr and Mrs Symons!
