Meldazy/Carpanzano Wedding July 22, 2023
The venue of my dreams!
My wedding was absolutely perfect!
Not accommodating at all for photo permit
After numerous emails back and forth and waiting a week in between for a response. She told me she would ask her event manager or someone superior to give me that one hour time slot just to get a reply the week after that they weren’t going to do anything for me.
Over a month of constant emails back and forth just to not get anything out of it, I even offered to pay more and nothing. Their photo permits are crazy expensive and they only have a specific time slot of like a few hours tops for people who aren’t getting married there 10-11 & 1-2 I believe. It’s ridiculous the one place I wanted wouldn’t even give me 1 hour.
I got engaged July 2020 and my wedding is July 2022.
Highly Recommended for a Small Wedding
Beautiful Venue & Very fair venue!
The best venue ever!!!
Perfect Venue, amazing team
Dream Come True Fairytale Wedding
A great big thank you to Glynis, our onsite Events Coordinator, who met with us and answered all our questions. Very professional, knowledgeable and reliable. Responded promptly to emails and provided timely followup.
This beautiful landmark is a historical site open to visitors during the day, so one has to be okay with this. Having said this, the many castle visitors peering into the Conservatory taking photos and video and trying to catch a glimpse of our ceremony made us feel like royalty. Our guests were wowed by the amazing experience. Our onsite day of coordinator, Sera, was a true fairy godmother. She was incredibly attentive and hands on during both ceremony and photography. She made sure everything proceeded smoothly and on time, organizing and ushering in the bridal party and wedding guests, and ensuring that there was minimal interference from castle visitors for outdoor photography and video. Even though we had an allotted time slot, she was very open to suggesting many great photography locations around the castle and never made us feel rushed. On the contrary, her dedication to our happiness was inspiring and magical!
Thank you for making our dream come true! We would highly recommend this majestic venue to anyone looking for a truly unique and memorable wedding ceremony.
Engagement Shoot gone wrong
We arrived onsite and checked in and then were told to basically go around but don't go upstairs. No one accompanied us around or gave us directions. Tours were going through our areas and at several times we had to wait for a tour to get out of the way so we could shoot. At times I saw people taken photos with professional cameras who were clearly tourists and it is doubtful that they had a permit. When we arrived, we saw a bride and groom along with professional lighting, etc. onsite, for that I understand a permit, however, we simply had a camera with a flash.
To pay over $600 for a permit to have no guidance and not even have parking complimentary is terrible. It would have been better for us to simply have paid admission and then simply taken photos.
I was unhappy to pay over $600 for basically access into the castle. I understand that there were tours and some people were mindful, while others just stepped in our way. Had someone been with us, they could have geared them away for a brief moment while the photo was taken. No one was walking into the front area where the bride and groom were being shot. Tourists with heavy duty cameras were also walking around there shooting posed photos.
I do believe that the permit system needs to be reviewed as at no point were we provided with a map, or really any direction other than do not go upstairs. We probably could have continued shooting for 4 hours and no one would have known. I knew about the parking, however, once I saw what is "included" with the permit, I couldn't believe that it wasn't. At hotels, if you eat there, they comp the parking.
We requested a partial refund and were denied.
If this is the experience I received in regards to a photo permit, I can't imagine how the service would have been if we held our wedding there.
