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

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

Absolutely exellent

By Katharine and Will, on 06 Oct 2015

We had our reception at this venue on 12 September 2015 and couldn't have been happier. We were very well looked after in the planning stages with Emma Julian somehow managing to remember all the extra little details and pulling them together in to the plan for the day. The food was also outstanding. Highly recommended.

A truely amazing venue and team

My husband and I got married and had our reception at the Riverside Marquee on the 8th August. I have only positive things to say about the venue, team and food. Emma is a fantastic event coordinator and helped plan our wedding to perfection. We had the Georgian boat too which was a great surprise for all our guests. All our guests loved the venue and the food. The grounds are stunning too which is all yours for the day which is a huge bonus. Our wedding day was a day we will always remember and was everything we dreamed of and more. Thank you so much Emma, John and the rest of the team at the Riverside Marquee.

Fantastic wedding venue
Venue Service

By Adam Sharif, on 03 Aug 2015

We discovered the marquee nearly two years ago and instantly knew it was the one for us! We wanted our wedding to be colourful, relaxed and fun, and Riverside Marquee met the brief perfectly. The marquee itself is spacious, light and pretty, and the beautiful surrounding grounds are amazing. Fantastic for photo opportunities, garden games, and just allowing guests of all ages to explore and relax. We had the most fanstastic day thanks to Advantage Events and Riverside Marquee, everyone (including children too) had a brilliant time and several people mentioned how special and unique the venue was. Everything was perfect, and all went to plan thanks to Emma and her team. They were always there for us and helped us to stay calm during our wedding planning! We opted for the street food which was delicious! The chef was very creative, knowlegable and flexible too, we were very impressed. The canapes he produced were fantastic too. Lots and lots of positive feedback from our guests about the food! Would thoroughly recommend this venue for a wedding, it really has a 'wow' factor to it, and as a bonus you can add a boat trip to your special day, so glad we did that. Thoroughly recommended, really stands out from other venues, I miss it already!

A Stunning Venue
Venue Service

By Alex & Rachel Williams, on 17 Jul 2015

We held our wedding reception at the marquee in June this year, and were absolutely delighted with this beautiful venue. The service we received from Emma, John and all the staff was of the highest standard – nothing was too much trouble for them, and we were overwhelmed by how gorgeous the place looked when we arrived there on our big day. Our guests all adored the riverside location, and the children had a great time running around and playing in the grounds. Our wedding happened to coincide with the Magna Carta River Pageant so we got to see a flotilla of boats pass by, which provided excellent entertainment! Emma and John made sure the whole day ran smoothly, and we really cannot thank them enough for all their hard work. The food was excellent - we went for the BBQ option which was perfect for a riverside setting. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the DJ provided us with a fab evening. At the end of the night we surprised everyone by leaving by boat, which was such a fun, exciting and romantic way to bring our special day to a close. The staff laid out a red carpet and some little lights on the lawns to guide us down to the riverbank, and everyone waved us off as we sailed away into the night. All in all it was an amazing day and we came away with some very happy memories...we thoroughly recommend this as a perfect wedding venue!

A Perfect Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Amy & Steve Cornish - 4th July 2015, on 13 Jul 2015

We have just had our wedding at The Edwardian Marquee and we could recommend to anyone who is looking for a secluded, picturesque location, then this is the one ! Having had 29 children attend the wedding, the grounds were just perfect for them to run around in, with our Guests not having the worry of upsetting any other Guests, as you would at a hotel venue. The comments we received from our Guests with regard to the venue were amazing. We are sure the invitation stating a venue of a Marquee conjured thoughts of Portaloos, but the Edwardian Marquee is far from that, being of a permanent structure, with all the facilities for a perfect wedding. The service we received from John, Emma and all their staff was next to none, and far exceeded our expectations. The food was faultless, from the amazing canapés, the piping hot main course, right through to our own Cheese Tower, which Chef dressed to a work of art. We were lucky enough to have a perfect Summer day and our Guests were able to admire the beautiful lawns running down to the river. Those Guests who didn’t want to dance the night away were able to sit out on the patio as the evening cooled in the tranquility of the setting. We can’t thank all involved enough for making our wedding the most amazing day to remember.

The Edwardian Marquee - A beautiful venue
Venue Service

By Carley and Mike, on 30 May 2015

The service we recieved from the wedding coordinators at this venue was great, they were really helpful and we always got a quick response to e mails. Emma was always willing to help me with my countless panic e mails in the week before the wedding no matter how ridiculous they probably were. I really lack imagination so gave them the few decorative bits we had and asked them to do what they could they exceeded my expectations. The room looked beautiful on the day, they had put the bits I'd left in all the right places and added bits of their own too. The flowers were done by the Edwardian Marquee florist and again they were amazing we had chosen the colour and the vases but left everything else for them to do. Hilary did an amazing job. They were beautiful. As well as the room looking great the gardens also looked lovely, the red carpet down to the river where we got the boat was perfect. It's a great location on the Thames as we were able to do a boat ride up to Windsor for reception drinks in between the service and meal, this was a surprise for a lot of people and it went down really well! The food was really delicious. We went for a BBQ option which worked really well.The DJ, bar staff and waiting staff were all great and John did a great job looking after us in the evening. We have only had positive comments about our wedding day and I know it's a cliche but it really was the best day ever!

Our Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Neil & Nikki Sullivan, on 22 Sep 2014

We recently got married at The Edwardian Marquee. We could not fault anything, it was simply perfect. Emma, John and the team were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble, they are so friendly and professional and cater the entire day as you dream. We had one of the hottest days of the year, and held the ceremony outside - the gardens are the most beautiful setting. We had a BBQ, and the food was out of this world. The boat trip also adds that special touch to make it different from any standard wedding. The amount of comments we have had from guests to say it was the best wedding they have been to was overwhelming. We cannot thank Emma, John & the team enough for making our day so pefect. It was the best day of our lives. Highly recommend this venue :)

We had our wedding at the marquee and the whole day was perfect. Emma and her fantastic team did a great job, everything ran smoothly and nothing was too much trouble. Very professional events team. We had a BBQ and the food was amazing. All of our guests enjoyed the food, venue, music, drinks and often commented on the smooth running of the day. A lot of guests said it was the best wedding they have been too! The great thing about the marquee is it is a blank canvas and you can have the wedding you want to have! The scenery is beautiful. Perfect wedding and we definitely had the best day of our lives!
