An amazing rainy summers day wedding
Venue Service

By Kerry and Jason, on 01 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 29 Jul 2018

We wanted an informal summer garden party feel to our wedding and felt that the Riverside offered exactly what we were after, with a lovely garden and the most amazing trees by the water’s edge. Throughout the build up, Emma and her team were extremely helpful and always quick to respond to queries and also introduced us to Hilary who did an amazing job with our flowers and to the boat company who made Kerry’s arrival via the Thames something special! On the day itself, which turned out to be one of the very few rainy days during a gloriously hot summer, the team at the venue, led by Emma, couldn’t have done more to make our day run smoothly and ensure that we felt comfortable and with everything firmly under control! We honestly can’t rate them highly enough - the image of Emma battling the elements in the driving rain just to make sure the red carpet went down in time for Kerry’s riverside arrival will remain as testament to her dedication to us on the day! And, when later on, the rain cleared up following a perfectly ran ‘plan b’ ceremony the guests were able to head outside after all and we had the best of both worlds. Food, we had the hog roast and would recommend, was great and well organised. The day, and our plan, was implemented professionally, without fuss, and still managed to feel informal, just as we’d wanted! Couldn’t recommend this venue or team highly enough. Thanks again to Emma and all at the Riverside Marquee!

Perfect Summer Riverside Wedding
Venue Service

By Charlotte and Nick, on 17 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Jun 2018

We had our wedding reception at the Riverside Marquee on 16th June 2018 and we were delighted with our choice. Emma was so accommodating of all our requests for food options and layout etc in the planning of the day, and the whole team were excellent in the set-up and on the day itself, helping create a lovely atmosphere. It is such a beautiful venue and was the perfect setting and layout for our day. We loved being right by the river and being able to look down to it even when inside the marquee. The team were really attentive and professional, nothing was too much trouble, and everything went seamlessly. Our guests had nothing but praise for the venue and the food. We were also so appreciative of how careful the team were when dismantling our wedding cake. Leaving the non-cut layers completely in-tact. In the evening we sailed away by boat, which was the perfect ending to the day with all the guests waving from the bank. We couldn't have chosen a better venue and would whole-heartedly recommend it. Thank you! Charlotte and Nick

Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Steve, on 19 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2018

A wonderful location with great facilities and accommodating friendly staff. The food was absolutely fantastic too. We recommend the cup cakes. All the staff made it easy to arrange and plan a stress free wedding day with the features we required and more. Especially their Events Manager, she was very helpful, and great security guards who were very friendly and kept a keen eye on any kids that played near the river. We really had a great day thanks to the Riverside Marquee and it's staff, somehow they even made the sunshine. It was the perfect day.

Perfect wedding venue
Venue Service

By Mei and Chun, on 08 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Sep 2017

We cannot thank everyone at Riverside Marquee enough for making the planning and the actual day of our wedding even better than we imagined. From the first day we met Emma we knew we were in good hands. She was full of brilliant ideas from the get go and on all our requests she was very accommodating, trying her every effort to make our plans come true. The team did such a great job decorating the venue on the day. With the sun shining down on a surprisingly warm September day, the grounds looked beautiful with the red carpet and shepherd hook lanterns all lined up neatly. The dining room looked stunning and the room was turned around so quickly in time for our evening event. Our guests were constantly praising how nice the venue was and were impressed with how much we were allowed to do especially when it came to the lantern release at night. I would highly recommend this venue. It's a blank canvas with endless possibilities to create your perfect wedding. Thank you all once again to everyone at Riverside Marquee!! Love from Mei and Chun.

We got married at riverside marquee in September. Emma and the team were amazing, they did everything in their power to help the day and lead up to the wedding run smoothly- nothing went wrong!! The food was delicious, so many guests complimented how nice it was. The venue and the surrounding grounds looked lovely. A truly lovely venue, service and location.

Thank you to everyone at the Riverside Marquee (especially Emma and John) for making our Wedding day so perfect. We couldn't have asked for anything to go more smoothly. It looked beautiful, the staff were attentive, professional and personable. The food was fantastic and we've had many comments from our guests saying what a great day it was. Thank you! Sam and Jess.

Magical wedding
Venue Service

By Janni Danielsen, on 24 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Aug 2017

THANK YOU Emma and your team. We got married at the Riverside on 12th August 2017 and had the most fantastic day. The first time we met Emma we felt we were in good hands. We had some ideas for food, decorations and timings of the days and Emma did her very best to make it happen for us. She was very accommodating at all times and made us feel like anything was possible and never a bother. Even when changes occurred on the day, she still solved every challenge we had with absolute perfection. With Argentinian roots, we wished for a grill slightly different from the standard and all our guest were blown away with the quality of food. The chef was also very open to our suggestions. The Riverside is very much like a blank canvas and it is absolutely amazing to decorate. It doesn't need much as the surroundings are so beautiful. We love nature and felt that this venue was spot on. Close to nature and not too far from town. Highly recommend and if I could give 6 stars, I would.

Lovely venue, lovely staff, fabulous day
Venue Service

By Lily and Chris, on 16 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Jul 2017

Emma helped us create a wonderful day matching what we had envisioned. She is a diamond, very helpful and kept a big smile on her face the whole (long and rainy) day. The food was exceptional and our guest complimented it as well as the wine. The venue is lovely and makes for great pictures. I'm sure we will use the Marquee again for future celebrations.

By Mr & Mrs White, on 16 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Jul 2017

Could not thank everyone at Riverside enough for there outstanding service throughout the planning and the day of the wedding. Emma has been a massive help leading up to the wedding and John did an amazing job leading the day. We could not of asked for anything more, the venue looked beautiful & we were lucky enough to have the sun shining on the amazing garden leading down to the river. All our guests had a lovely day, wish we could do it all over again. x

Most magical day in a wonderful venue!!
Venue Service

By Sophie and Elliott Lack, on 22 Aug 2016Date of Wedding - 05 Aug 2016

We got married at The Riverside Marquee in Bray on the 5th August 2016. As soon as we saw the venue we fell in love with it, as it is on the river and we loved the idea of the bridal party arriving by boat which added a special twist for us. Throughout the whole process, Emma the wedding planner was fantastic and answered our many questions and guided us on how to ensure we made the most of our special day. The day itself was absolutely amazing and the venue looked even more incredible decorated with fairy lights and flowers - plus we were so lucky the weather was good so that we could have the ceremony outside. All of the staff were fantastic from start to finish and the food was outstanding. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this venue. Be sure to make the most of the beautiful surroundings such as the river - we also did an hours cruise with French Brothers for our canapé and drinks reception which our guests loved. Thank you to everyone at the Riverside Marquee, especially Emma, for helping us to have the most magical wedding day we could have possibly imagined. Sophie and Elliott

Wow! What a venue!
Venue Service

By Victoria Wagner, on 17 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 16 Jul 2016

We are so overdue to write this review and we can only apologies! Married life has just got in the way! We felt compelled to give five star feedback (if we could give more we would!) from beginning to end we just knew this was the right venue and Emma was the right planner! From every tiny detail to logistics there was nothing too much for The Riverside Marquee! Arrival by boat with my maids to a trip up the Thames on The New Queen with all our guests is something people are talking about a year on! We managed to get exceptional weather, a wedding outside and a brilliant drone video! Thank you for all that you did for us! X

Amazing venue, gorgeous grounds and lovely staff!
Venue Service

By Nicola and Peter Collison, on 08 Aug 2016Date of Wedding - 09 Jul 2016

We had our wedding reception at the Marquee last month and it was wonderful in every way! This was only the second wedding venue that we viewed and we loved in straight a way. The moment we found out that we could, along with all our guests, arrive at the venue by boat, we were sold :-) ! From the moment that we came to view the venue, to the end of our wedding day, our wedding coordinator Emma was amazing in every way. She helped answer all the questions we had and her suggestions and recommendations really did help us along the way. We are extremely grateful to her and all the great staff at the venue who helped to make our day so special. All our guests loved the grounds and the food got soo many great compliments. It was the perfect venue for the lovely, relaxed and casual summer wedding that we had always wanted, and will always hold great memories for us. We would definitely recommend it!! Thank you all once again!! Love from Nicky and Pete, xxx
