A day beyond our expectations
We chose the Pump House Gallery for our wedding. We loved the small building being hidden away in the centre of the park.Sent on 06/02/2020
Tess helped us out from day one and met with us several times to ensure planning was all going well and we had what she needed. She also worked with our florist and photographer (who she recommended) and other suppliers to make the days itself run smoothly. Tess - we can't thank you enough.
The space looked incredible. We put pictures and things all over the walls and included flowers and signs to turn the space into our own. I can't recommend it enough!

Im so glad we had you to make it all come to life
Michael and I wanted to extend our biggest thanks over to you and the rest of the team for Friday. Our wedding felt like a wonderful dream to us and I know thats because your impeccable management meant that things flowed easily and seamlessly :) Thank you! Not just for the day itself but for being so attentive in the months leading up to the wedding. Although it was a very small family celebration, it meant the world to us and I'm so glad we had you to make it all come to life. We're eternally grateful and feel very lucky.Sent on 03/01/2020

The setting is incomparably unique and wondrous
Fred and I would like to thank Tess Hillier and the rest of your wonderful team for making our Christmas wedding celebration so magical! The setting is incomparably unique and wondrous (not to mention having some of the sweetest and freshest air in Central London), and it was a genuine pleasure planning our day with you: Tess is a genius when it comes to solving logistical wrinkles and making sure we never once felt we were compromising. All our guests have mentioned what an incredible hidden gem The Pump House Gallery is, and your hard work, patience and good humour in accommodating every detail and transforming the venue for us meant we not only had the most spectacular send-off into married life, but we also even enjoyed the few months’ run-up to the day! We can’t even begin to convey how grateful we are for everything you did to make our twinkly December wedding day perfect for us: we are still pinching ourselves!Sent on 23/01/2020
