    Amazing Wedding Day

    We recently held our wedding at the Compleat Angler and had such a fantastic day and couldn't have asked for more.

    Thank you to all the team, especially to Gavin the General Manager and huge thanks to Cristina, our wedding coordinator who is amazing at her job, for all the help and support from the first meeting, to the run up to the day and being there on the wedding day itself to make sure everything ran smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble especially as prior to the day we were all affected by COVID in one way or another, talk about an emotional rollercoaster for everyone!

    On the day the venue looked stunning and it took my breath away as I entered the room with my Dad to walk me up the aisle. After the ceremony we had a reserved area on the lawn to have our photos taken and have champagne and canapés (COVID compliant of course) before going into our wedding breakfast. The food tasted amazing and everyone commented on how nice it was.

    The hotel has a list of recommended suppliers that I contacted including flowers, hair, makeup and photographer all are excellent and helped contribute to the day and cannot recommend enough.

    The bedroom we stayed in had a beautiful view of the weir and would definitely stay there again.

    As you can tell we had such a lovely wedding day which we will treasure always.

    A fantastic venue and team that I would highly recommend.

    We had the most fabulous day.

    We were married here and had the most fabulous day. I stayed in the double feature bedroom looking out into the weir which has a very relaxing sound to put you to sleep and wake up to.

    On our big day the team worked really well together to make sure all our wants and needs were met and we felt special and looked after.
    We were lucky with the weather and a beautiful boat trip but even so the venue and customer service were exceptional.
    Couldn’t recommend it enough and it certainly exceeds it’s reputation for location, venue, and customer service who make you feel right at home.
    Looking forward to going back soon.

    Overall, excellent!

    We chose this venue mainly because of the location. They were happy to accommodate our small family wedding party and we could also give our guests an optional trip on the river. The wedding planner responded to all our requirements in a friendly and efficient manner, and was able to recommend local suppliers for flowers, lighting and photography. The rooms are well appointed and the service good. Our wedding breakfast was enjoyed by us all. Overall - excellent.

    It was a truly magical day.

    We just wanted to thank you to Cristina and all the team for all the work you all put in to make our Wedding a success.

    We and all our guests had an absolute fantastic day much of which is attributed to Cristina and her team. Nothing was too much trouble and we are very grateful to you all.

    Everything was perfect from the service, organisation and the food which was exceptional.

    It was a truly magical day.

    We really appreciate all the hard work, planning and patience Cristina put in to make our day so incredible.

    The best day!

    Thank you to Cristina for being so amazing with me and my groomzilla, our deadline was short and our wants differed to your normal foods/needs and you could have not been more helpful, anything Cristina could do she did!

    Jorge who dealt with us on our wedding day, was a star.

    David in concierge was such a welcoming and helpful person, helping to organise our chaotic crowd checking in.

    All the staff were incredible and I can’t imagine having a better wedding reception than I did here at the hotel with you.

    Where do I start!

    Where do I start!? What an absolutely incredible day and we even had sunshine!
    A day like our Wedding day does not happen without a lot of care and attention to detail. You have been a star through the whole process. Always professional but kind and considerate when family problems arose.

    It’s been fun, not stressful, planning our day and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Thank you for all of your hard work. I know you are a team and everyone played their part but without you seizing the moment, calling me straight back and running with me who knows, we might have been getting married much later in the year.

    The most perfect day ever.

    We wanted to say thank you to Cristina again for making our wedding the most perfect day ever.
    All of the staff went above and beyond our expectations.
    Jorge was also fantastic, letting me come and see the room multiple times during set up to make sure it was all perfect.

    All in all a brilliant day!

    We had a beautiful ceremony at the Macdonald Compleat Angler Hotel. The attention to detail and support from everyone in the events team was fantastic. The Thames room looked fabulous and we loved having one big table for all of our guests.
    The food was delicious! All in all a brilliant day - we couldn't recommend it highly enough.

    Such an enjoyable and memorable occasion for us!

    Thank you and all of the members of the catering and events team at the Compleat Angler for helping to make our wedding on Saturday such an enjoyable and memorable occasion for us, and for all our guests.

    In particular, could you please thank Brahim for his calmness, efficiency and coordination; managing to keep things turning round even when the reception overran. Phyllis noticed on a video that he even sorted out her train as she walked down the aisle, he was a real star.

    It really could not have gone any better!

    I felt very reassured as soon as I spoke to Cristina the first time. Also, Brahim was just the best, kept everything on track and everyone calm. He really is a superstar; the hotel are lucky to have him. In fact all of the staff at the hotel were so helpful, my family have all commented on how nice the staff were. Housekeeping were good too and promptly cleaned the bridal suite and tidied it up for me which was really helpful.

    Our wedding really couldn’t have gone any better, to say it exceeded my expectations would be an understatement. I’m so pleased we chose the Compleat Angler.
