Wedding of my dreams!

If you want to have a wedding that all your guests will say is the best they’ve even been to, then hire Ginny. If you don’t want that, then sure hire someone else 🙂

We hired Ginny to plan our wedding at Isola Del Garda/Gardone Riviera in September 2023 and it truly was the wedding of our dreams. Ginny is that rare wedding planner that stays completely calm during the craziness of planning, yet doesn’t miss a single important detail.

We can’t stop looking at all the photos and videos from our special day and look forward to seeing Ginny when we come back to the lake for future wedding anniversaries. It was the best day of our lives and ours guests keep saying it was the best day of their lives (seriously). The day was absolutely brilliant. Grazie mille Ginny!!

Wedding of our dreams

What can I say.. Ginny from Weddings at Lake Garda exceeded our expectations!
For a couple who did everything last minute, Ginny had the patience and understanding right until the very end!
She went above and beyond planning our wedding, she came to visit me first thing on the morning of my special day to calm my nerves down and even to bring an oxygen tank for my father in-law on the day!
I was taken back when I arrived at our reception, the flowers, food, the cake (our guests and myself cannot stop talking about it) and the overall vibe was pure magical (more than what I had imagined).
Thanks for making our dreams come true.. can we do this all again!?

The best wedding planner in Lake Garda

Well what can we say about the lovely Ginny other than incredible. 3 years in the making our wedding was and she ensured everything was absolutely perfect. She speaks perfect English and Italian therefore no hiccups on the day. All the little extras were organised perfectly and best of all she’s always there for you on email, WhatsApp, telephone or in person when you visit. For sure my wedding would not have been the perfect day it was without Ginny’s involvement.

Highly recommend Ginny to anybody wanting to get married in Lake Garda.

If you are considering Weddings at Lake Garda as your wedding planner, DO IT!

If you are considering Weddings at Lake Garda as your wedding planner, DO IT! Everyone at our wedding said it was the most amazing wedding they had ever been to and all of the credit goes to Ginny.
Ginny's calm demeanour makes you feel comfortable immediately and her genuine passion for wedding planning only makes you more excited for your big day.
Ginny's wealth of experience also makes a HUGE difference because she considers things you won't think about it and she always proposes options immediately for these as she has a wide network of vendors in the area.
Ginny is super flexible and accommodating. She drove to multiple venues all around Lake Garda for us to FaceTime us so we could see options via FaceTime since we couldn't be there in person.
Finally, she is extremely responsive and its obvious she loves her work. We live in Australia and planned our wedding from abroad during covid, so I expected some bumps in the road during wedding planning however I was not once stressed throughout the entire process. I am typically an easily stressed person, so this was especially appreciated!
Thank you again Ginny - we wish we could do the entire process all over again!

Excellent service

We hired Ginny Bevan at the recommendation of our wedding venue (Torre San Marco) and we could not have been more pleased. She was extremely helpful, certainly well connected with vendors and able to help with many difficult decisions and made helpful suggestions. She also performed the ceremony for us! We felt her fee was very reasonable and well worth it! We highly recommend her!

Best wedding planner ever!

Where to begin when writing a review for our amazing wedding planner Ginny? Well, if you are thinking of working with her, and only have the patience to read a couple of sentences, I will start by saying - DO IT! Choosing Ginny to plan our wedding was the single best decision we made during the whole process. If you want to get married on Lake Garda, look no further than Ginny and Weddings at Lake Garda.
It was clear from the beginning that we got so much more than just a wedding planner when working with Ginny. She truly cares about each and every couple she works with, and that comes through in every interaction.
We had the added complication of Covid when planning our wedding - which meant we had to book our venue without even seeing it. But with Ginny's advice and always going the extra mile (think video tours on facetime!) we chose Rocca di Lonato and it was simply the most amazing venue to host our wedding. When we then had to move the date due to Covid, it couldn't have been less stressful on our end. I'm sure the same couldn't be said for Ginny but we would never have known. And within a week or so our new date was agreed with all of our suppliers.
Speaking of suppliers, Ginny has excellent contacts all over the lake, and every one of our requests was fulfilled with ease! Not to mention everything was of the absolute highest quality - especially the food and drink. But also the flowers, make up and hair, fireworks, DJ and Sax... the list goes on! Our guests are still talking about it! I also need to give a special shout out to Ginny's husband, Lorenzo, who was our photographer and captured our day just perfectly.
When it came to the day itself, Ginny was simply AMAZING. Absolutely everything went to plan and was seamless - again, our guests were in awe of the organisation and how everything seemed to just flow from one part of the day to the next. Of course that was all down to Ginny's expert organisation and unflappable presence throughout the whole day (and it was a long day!) It is a cliche but it really was the best day of our lives and we can't thank Ginny enough for making it happen.

The best master of ceremony

We had the pleasure to have Ginny as our master of ceremony.
Ginny was incredible, we couldn’t wish for a better master of ceremony. She made our wedding fun and unforgettable. Her idea to make the ceremony less conventional, more fun and less serious was exactly what fit to us as a couple, and let us be sure to mention, our guests LOVED IT too. Who can say that they had Joey Tribiani's wedding speech delivered in part during their ceremony?! How cool is that :D Her style of delivery was great and she was also very comforting during the ceremony when she saw that the nerves were getting to us. We loved every single bit of her speech and got countless positive reactions from our family and friends. The ceremony style and content inspired many who have yet to hold their weddings too.

She was very professional from the first email conversations, her quick response times are a massive bonus and she was generally very helpful. She also kindly offered to help us organize the groups of people before and after the ceremony and thanks to her our guests' photoshoot was extremely efficient, clear and organized!

We would recommend her to anyone who wants to have an amazing ceremony. Additionally, she does full wedding planning, which we can only imagine has to be incredible with her too.

Ginny, ONE MORE MASSIVE THANK YOU! And look forward to seeing each other sometime again soon :)

We cannot recommend Ginny more! The perfect planner for your Lake Garda wedding!

We will be forever grateful to Ginny for making our wedding dreams come true!

She’s helped us every step of the way, from finding the perfect venue, to understanding paperwork, recommending the loveliest people to work with, being patient whilst we figured out what we wanted, and keeping us calm throughout - and that’s all before making sure the day itself ran perfectly!

It was clear from the very beginning that we were in safe hands. Ginny is passionate about creating the best day possible for her couples, with a professional, friendly and calm approach. We’d highly recommend her to anyone with dreams of a Lake Garda wedding.

Thank you Ginny for working your magic and creating our perfect day!

Excellent wedding abroad

We had a great experience with Ginny for our wedding from advice and planning to perhaps most importantly when engaging in a wedding abroad liaising with local suppliers to ensure everything was communicated clearly and the day itself was seamless.

We were able to really enjoy our wedding due to all of the work put in behind the scenes.

Perfect!!!

Ginny created our perfect wedding day! Our idea of a lake garda wedding became reality because of her ideas, support and guidance! She made the planning period not stressful, but fun!
When we got nerveus, she calmed us down, when we were indecisive, she kept an eye on the timeline! And the wedding day itself we could enjoy to the fullest because of her organization, flexibility, dedication and professionalism!
We can only recommend Ginny, as she took a vital role for us to have our dream wedding!

Exceptional

Ginny has all the qualities we could have hoped for in a wedding planner - calm, organised and a no ask is too much attitude.

She truly wants to bring your vision to life, guiding you and providing the much needed hand holding but doesn’t try to influence you on the big decisions. Entertainment was very important for us and it took a while to find the right band, but Ginny was patient and constantly finding new options until we found the perfect one, which she absolutely nailed!!

Her wealth of experience and knowledge were invaluable and the strong relationships she has with vendors in Lake Garda made everything so easy.

The wedding day ran so smoothly - meticulously organised and everything on schedule, while still feeling so relaxed. And the reception party was more fun than we could have imagined!

We can’t thank Ginny enough for the magical day she helped us to create, one that we will never forget.

If you want your expectations exceeded, it’s got to be Ginny!

Amazing Wedding Planner!

Ginny is THE most amazing wedding planner, super professional, organised, calm, collected and exactly what every Bride and Groom planning their wedding needs!
She went above and beyond to make our wedding the most perfect day and we cannot recommend her highly enough.
If you are considering whether to spend the extra money on a wedding planner even on a tight budget I would highly recommend you do, it was the best money we spent!

International Wedding


We had the pleasure of working with Ginny for our international wedding and cannot express how grateful we are for her exceptional services! From the initial video consultation to the big day itself, she exceeded all expectations and made our Italian wedding a dream come true.

Right from the start, Ginny showcased her professionalism and dedication. She took the time to understand our vision, preferences, and budget, ensuring that every detail of our wedding was tailored to perfection. Her attention to detail and creative ideas transformed our vision to reality.

Communication was effortless and prompt throughout the entire planning process. Whether through calls, emails, or video chats Ginny was always available to address any concerns or questions we had. Her responsiveness and willingness to accommodate our needs made us feel at ease, knowing that we were in capable hands.

One of the standout qualities of Ginny was her extensive network of vendors. She was able to recommend top-notch professionals for every aspect of our wedding, including catering, florals, photography, and entertainment. Her relationships with these vendors ensured that we received the best quality services within our budget. It saved us a tremendous amount of time and effort in researching and vetting vendors ourselves.

On the day of the wedding, Ginny truly shined. She managed every aspect of the day flawlessly, from coordinating with vendors to ensuring that the timeline was followed meticulously. Her calm and reassuring presence allowed us to fully enjoy our special day, knowing that everything was being taken care of behind the scenes.

Ginny even went above and beyond to accommodate last-minute changes and unexpected circumstances. Her adaptability and problem-solving skills were truly commendable, ensuring that our wedding proceeded seamlessly despite any hiccups.

Overall, we cannot recommend Ginny enough for anyone looking for a highly professional and dedicated wedding planner. Her expertise, attention to detail, and exceptional customer service made our wedding an unforgettable experience. If you want your special day to be stress-free and truly magical, do not hesitate to hire her. We love you Ginny! Xoxo

Amazing Wedding in Lake Garda

Hi Ginny,

We are all back in the UK now and we’d just like to reiterate our appreciation to you in helping with our marriage. If the events leading up to the day were somewhat challenging, the day itself was everything (and more) that we hoped it would be! Thanks to you and Claudia the ceremony was amazing, in an amazing building, and it could not have been more enjoyable.

Staying on the theme of amazing, Sara was also amazing! We’re obviously in touch with her re the photos and have thanked her personally for her contribution, but as you recommended her it may be good to know our feelings.

You helped us make memories and hopefully this little note helps make all the challenging times feel worthwhile.

One last, you were amazing, and we’ll sign-off and get on with our married life together!

Love and thanks

Mr & Mrs Walsh
