Venue Service

By David & John, on 08 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2018

We had just the best day ever! It was a lovely day with lots of laughter and buckets of tears! The hall looked amazing. It was perfect and everyone commented how nice the food and staff all were. You made it very easy for us- thank you so much! Literally not one single tiny thing was out of place. Thanks for everything from start to finish it was a delight to work you, Kenrick and Catia – the day could not have gone better.

I could not recommend them more highly!
Venue Service

By Imogen & Andrew, on 13 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 12 Mar 2016

I am involved with The Haberdashers’ Company so it is a special place for me, as well as being a beautiful venue. There is no one who I would have rather worked with for the planning of our special day. We were blown away by everybody at Haberdashers’ Hall and Chester Boyd. Their attention to detail, wealth of experience and care for us as bride and groom was second to none. When we arrived at The Hall on our wedding day, everything looked even better than we could have possibly imagined. Leaving it all to them was the best decision we ever made, they definitely know what they’re doing! I couldn’t recommend them more highly!

10 out of 10!

By Tom & Elsha, on 18 Apr 2013

Just a quick note to reiterate our thanks for all your hard work on making our wedding reception extra special. Elsha and I found you and your staff extremely professional, helpful and friendly throughout the planning stage and on the big day itself. Everything ran so smoothly we could just sit back and enjoy our big day. 10 out of 10 for the quality of the food and service. We would be more than happy to recommend Haberdashers' Hall as a reception venue to our friends and family.

Guests complimentary about the venue...
Venue Service

By Paul & Sylvia, on 18 Apr 2013

Firstly many many thanks for helping us with a great evening, the guests have been extremely complimentary about the venue. Everything went very smoothly on the evening and the food was great. I heard a few times people had never had such a good meal cooked on that scale.

An exceptional venue for such an event
Venue Service

By Rear Admiral Richard Phillips, on 18 Apr 2013

My daughter Amy was married at St Paul's Cathedral and the reception was held in the 'Hall'. The event was a great success and everything our Events Manager, Graham, promised it would be. We had a reception,a dinner and a dance and Haberdashers' Hall proved an exceptional venue for such an event. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. The staff could not have been more helpful or efficient under Graham's direction and guidance although I gather they were not directly responsible for the perfect weather. After such a moving ceremony in the Baroque splendour of Saint Paul's, the 'Hall provided the perfect contrast for the party. The light, clean, modern buildings elicited much favourable comment and praise.

On the catering side absolutely perfect !!!
Venue Service

By Joanna & Ricardo, on 18 Apr 2013

Joanna and I are still delighted about our great day and it is costing a little bit for two of us going back to reality. On the catering side - Absolutely Perfect !!! Our family members and guests simply loved it. The food, the service, decoration and everything else which made a very special day for us... and AGAIN, this is wouldn't be possible without Chester Boyd support. My special compliments to Pav, Sullivan, Barbara and all the waiting staff who could deliver absolutely right on the spot. Also, our appreciation on the "soup" course at the very beginning. It was delicious!!!

Absolutely glowing!
Venue Service

By Graham & Clare, on 18 Apr 2013

I'd like to start by thanking you and the team for helping us with our special day. The comments that we have received from our guests about the venue and the service have been absolutely glowing. Your professionalism, care and efficiency was not only noted but very much appreciated. Obviously, on a day like that, a flawless, stress free execution of the day is a priority and we can't thank you all enough for ensuring that everything went to plan. It really allowed us to focus on the day and make the most of it. You even managed to arrange it to be the warmest day of the year ;)
