Good evening Deborah and all of the amazing team from Lake Garda Weddings!!
My wife and I would like to apologise that it's taken so long to send this message, we have finally had our home wedding and got back in to the work life at our schools and have everything complete over here now!
Well where do we start???? Ok first of all we must say how professional and friendly the team were. They made us feel completely at ease, they had every single detail organised and perfect! Anxious is an understatement when trying to explain how Robyn felt on the run up to the wedding, meeting the ladies completely took that away and put both our minds at ease. That very first meeting put all of our worries at bay and enabled us to really enjoy our days before the wedding. Within an hour we had met everyone involved in the wedding, florists, hair dresser and makeup artist and we had a tour of our wedding day. Deborah was amazing, and talked us through every detail. We walked around like movie stars with everyone saying ciao! It is a memory that we will treasure forever!
When we got to Malcesine we were greeted by an amazing electrical storm over the lake but waking up on that first morning to the sun shining over the mountains was breath taking. Walking around the most beautiful place confirmed it was the perfect choice for us to marry. Meeting Deborah Gwen and Deborah also confirmed this.
Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. Deborah had told me all I had to do was be at the bar outside the castle for 1 and everything would fall in to place, and she was right! She met us there and told me and the guests to be upstairs on the terrace for 1.30. Robyn had already been to the hairdressers and make up artists with the bridesmaids and they had both done a fantastic job. Their hair and make up was amazing.
The ceremony was perfect and it was clear that Deborah really cared and enjoyed making us so happy. Deborah stayed with us through the day, making sure it ran smoothly and we will be eternally grateful for how magical she helped make the day! The champagne toast was first class and we couldn't have asked for more from Deborah as she had her work cut out from the children we had with us and they loved her! Thank you so much for looking after our little girl when she fell from the turtle!
From the serene boat trip to see the waterfall we got to La Voglia. They had taken our table decorations and everything else we had planned for the reception and told us not to worry. Christian and his wonderful staff had everything exactly how we had imagined and really went the extra mile to make things perfect. The food was just wow! 8 courses of heaven. Deborah eventually left us once we had finished the speeches and made sure we had all we needed. Thank you so much Deborah for making our day a fairytale!
Then there is Gwen..... what can we say? Thank you so much for giving us so many beautiful photos of our special day. You are an absolute super star. From our first meeting, you made us feel better about Robyn's phobia of the camera and promised, with our permission, to make us laugh and catch some natural images..... you did just that. We loved every second of our wedding shoot and our only regret is that we didn't have you for longer. The videographer was also a star! He gave us a great video of our day and caught some truly unforgettable moments without us actually realising he was there.
If anyone is ever in doubt about where to go and get married, Lake Garda Weddings is where we will be sending them!
Thank you so much again to you all, you truly are masters of what you do and we will be forever grateful. We will be back next year and will call in to see you all!
Robyn and Jim
