Le Gothique - what a team
The staff were absolutely amazing on the day. I got tracked down by a waiter who'd been told specifically to make sure the bride and groom ate and that's honestly genius because I would have forgotten otherwise.
Everything was set up perfectly and the staff we're super helpful in pointing out places for good photos in the building.
They dealt with our rowdy dancing and crowd surfing with good humour and grace.
I can definitely recommend Le Gothique as a wedding reception venue. 0 complaints from us.
A winter wonderland wedding
The charm offensive was never relentling with big smiles all day from all the staff.
Wedding food can be a compromise but I can honestly say this was one of the best meals of our lives. How do they do it in the small kitchen?
I would recommend this "castle" on Wandsworth Common to anyone looking for something special, something different, something excellent in every way
Wedding reception sent from Heaven
We could not fault a single thing, as Mark, the proprietor, took great care of us. He definitely knows his stuff when it comes to organising weddings and I would highly recommend him and his fantastic team.
It was a wedding day to remember, and this is due to all the planning, input and gems of advice from Le Gothique.
Thank you for all that you did for us, and for giving us a wedding reception sent from heaven!
A lovely day
Everyone enjoyed the flavours from our very unusual Asian/Eurpoean menu. Mark and his chefs went out of their way to assist us with the menu planning. We could see that a lot of hard work went into this.
Elliot was brilliant. So too was the owner Mark's son, Andrew, who was consatantly on hand to help.
This wedding was never going to be a run of the mill occasion. The menu was very important to us and Fred in the kitchen really delivered
I would like to thank Mark, Elliot and the team for their help in planning the day, tailoring everything to our requests and making everything run like clockwork.
I could not recommend Le Gothique more, both as a restaurant and a wedding venue. We look forward to many more meals there!
Great Venue, Great Service, Great Price
Added bonus the weather was fabulous too!
Best Summer Wedding Ever!
Wonderful Wedding Venue
The food was amazing on the day, such good quality and variety, many people mentioned how good it was.
The staff were amazing throughout the day, polite, always helpful, seamless. They were all so subtle and patient, even when politely telling guests they had to go inside (as we warned them on the invitations!). They were understanding that we were busy on the day so didn't ask us too much if it wasn't necessary.
They really did make the day for us and their experience was noticeable and flexibility much appreciated.
I think we'll be back every anniversary to celebrate, but maybe with less people ;)
Nice wedding venue
The best wedding anyone had been to
We loved the place from the moment we walked in. Everyone
commented on how lovely it was and that it was the best wedding they'd ever been
Thank to Elliot, Mark and his team for accommodating my vintage crockery and origami hearts - I thought it all looked lovely.
It was a slick operation that was clearly very well organised, yet incredibly relaxed
I can't think how the day could have been better
Exceptional food and service
The restaurant was laid up BOTH inside and outside so we could choose our seating options right up to the last minute. Essential when planning an April wedding al fresco. The food from Rafal in the kitchen was superbly cooked and delivered even though we gave him a tough time with all our "awkward" guests and their special requests. Well done all of you
Food and service were just great
The food and service was just great, everything flowed perfectly and easily and the staff couln't do enough to help us. More than that the staff were such great fun too!
Everyone who worked on the night really worked hard and made us feel relaxed and at ease.
