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

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

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.

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!!

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

Joss and Tim Wedding 18.06.2016
Venue Service

By Jocelyn and Timothy Norris-Wiles, on 05 Jul 2016

We cannot recommend the venue and the organisational skills of Emma and John highly enough. Having grown up only 5 minutes down the road from the venue, we knew it was where we wanted our reception as it is only a stones throw away from our church. It's a beautiful location with a well kept lawn, fantastic surrounding grounds and the marquee acts as a blank canvas so you can dress it to your heart's content. We had a relaxed vibe to our day choosing the BBQ menu which was delicious and putting on activities on the lawn for both kids and adults. The staff were extremely accommodating at dealing with our other suppliers and the day could not have gone smoother. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our wedding day and the planning with the venue. I would definitely recommend visiting the venue as the photographs do not do it justice. If you are creative and want to put a stamp to a beautiful riverside location then this is the worth checking out.

Sheridan Wedding 15th August 2015
Venue Service

By Kimberley Sheridan, on 09 Nov 2015

I had seen a lot of venues before visiting the Riverside Marquee but they didn't quite live up to my expectations and what I envisaged for our day. We love festivals and wanted to include this in the day. From first meeting Emma and John, they understood this vision and helped me every step of the way. The location is perfect and the drive leading up to it is so pretty, it's very secluded but not too far out the way. I had lots of little details which I needed their help with on the day, all of which exceeded my expectations. We hired one of the boats as a surprise for our guests which you will not regret! Brings such a great element to the day and our guests still talk about it now. We opted for the BBQ menu as we wanted the wedding breakfast to be quite relaxed and this did not disappoint. Evening food was also plentiful and delicious. The team really go out their way to make your day - your day. My only complaint is the day couldn't be made any longer - it literally was the best day of our lives! Thank you!

Must view this venue! Cannot recommend enough x
Venue Service

By Sara and Steve Sweetman, on 06 Oct 2015

We got married here on 03.10.15, I wish I could give this venue more than 5 stars!!!! However, I will be honest, at first the idea of a fixed marquee was not for me and a very clever friend convinced me to go and see this venue. Instantly I fell in love! The location is absolutely stunning…. From the short drive through the beautiful Bray Village, to arriving at the tree lined drive for the Marquee and then finally walking through the doors to see a full glass window that looks out onto the beautifully kept lawns and river Thames!!! You have to view this venue to appreciate how amazing it is. All of our guests were completely blown away xxx And that’s just the venue and location…. The staff, well they are something else! Every bride needs support, guidance and people who relieve some of the natural stress (that comes from organising a wedding)). And Emma and John absolutely made our day! They honestly could not do enough to help us! On the lead up to the wedding they promptly replied to every single question I had (which was quite a few!) and even spoke too our suppliers; in order to make sure the day went smoothly. On the day itself, they were wonderfully supportive and ran around constantly in order to ensure we had everything we needed. And we certainly did! The food was delicious!!! And the service staff were all so helpful and polite. We honestly had the best day ever, in the most beautiful location and have some amazing photos to show for it!!! Massive, huge, gigantic, enormous, colossal thanks!!! Words will never be enough to say how wonderful you all made our day, we will be forever grateful x Mr and Mrs Sweetman xxx
