We cannot thank Lake Garda Weddings enough for making our wedding day perfect in every way possible.

Malcesine itself it just beautiful making it an ideal place to get married. We first visited 18 months before just to make sure and when we first saw the castle and grounds I cried happy tears of just how beautiful it is. The internet does not do it justice (even though Gwen is an amazing photographer)

Over the 18 months, communication was great and emails were responded to immediately.

Sara was our wedding planner and she was fantastic when we arrived in Malcesine she took us around the town and the castle and explained how everything would work, she covers everything you can think off and we went away from the welcome meeting with no worries and that the wedding day would be ran perfectly and it really was. Sara was with us all day up till our first dance, she told the guest what to do through out the day made sure my self and my husband were happy with everything, the logistics of the wedding was perfect, we couldn’t fault a thing.

Hairdressers was simple amazing, I didn’t like my head dress that I brought with me and at the trial I ended up changing how I wanted my hair to look, she has lots of ideas and accessories that you can buy from her for your wedding day.

Make up was perfect, I was worried about this but Tiazana did 6 perfect faces of make up in 2.5 hours.

Flowers, I was very particular about my flowers and the colour what I wanted, but sent images through and ideas to the florist and she was happy to recreate what I had sent, the guests could stop commenting on how beautiful they smelt and looked, I got a lump in my throat when I saw my own bouquet the morning of my wedding.

Photos, Gwen is the best photographer, the guests even commented on how good she was. We have so many fabulous photos from through the whole day, we had the 4 hour package which in my eyes was just the right amount of time.

We opted for the string quartet & champagne toast in the castle which the guests loved, music was modern, room for children to play and run about... the setting of the castle is beautiful.

We had the 15 mins boat ride to la voglia which was great, as it was a hot day so cooled all the guests down (especially all the men in suits)

Christian and his team at La Voglia was ace... the restaurant itself was set out perfectly just as I wanted. The view is breathtaking, so you don’t need to many decorations. The food was delicious, one guests quote “phenomenal” we had the pear ravioli on our menu and nearly every guest commented on how amazing it was and was still talking about it days later. We had nearly 50 guests and the food came out for all within minutes. The staff were great couldn’t do enough and catered for children, baby’s and my pregnant maid of honour.

We had the DJ and sax and he was top, we had sent a list over of songs we wanted to be played and we had nearly the whole wedding party on the dance floor. All our guests loved the wedding, a lot saying the best wedding they had ever been too... up there in the top best days of their lives.

So you can image how happy myself and my husband were with the day.

Lake Garda weddings are fabulous and if you want an incredible wedding in the most perfect setting, with delicious food and good music. then this is the company for you. We can not recommend them enough. Everything was perfect from start to finish.

Thank you so much for making me the happiest bride on the planet. We will be renewing our vows at 10 years 😊 and I’m pretty sure all our guests will be coming Back !

Lots of love to you all xxx
