Our August Wedding
Venue Service

By Ben and Nicole, on 08 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 31 Aug 2019

We held our wedding recently at the Royal Berkshire Hotel and it was absolutely perfect. From initial contact with Lindsey we were instantly impressed by the rooms, gardens and hospitality. The organisation from the whole team in advance was superb, we had regular contact, the hotel were so flexible with any requests we made and provided superb guidance. On the day itself everything ran exactly to plan, Rob had it all under control, and the whole team were unbelievably helpful and provided outstanding service. The food is incredible, the rooms are so comfortable and the gardens are excellent for photos. Could not recommend highly enough.

Equally, I would like to thank Martin. I am unsure if that was his name and hope I am right! He was available the night before on duty and moved the furniture round in preparation. Again, he went above and beyond, helping us transport decorations from our cars, on the day when ensuring guests’ happiness, and he just never seemed to stop! Finally, I would like to thank you, Laura. The handover between you and Lyndsey was so smooth and your attention to detail remarkable. You have been on hand at every opportunity and instead of questioning our lack of traditions, you embraced it and often made small additions that made it infinitely better. You’ve been such a valuable support system, even when I’ve used you as a sound board, and so patient with James’ challenging schedule! I have really valued all of your experience, ideas, creativity and overall positivity. Once again, to all, thank you so much for going above and beyond at all times. You made our day a resounding success and one to be remembered for an extremely long time. We will likely be back for our paper wedding anniversary and we are both looking forward to the reunion already!

Thank you so much for all the help, support and well-wishes yesterday, and since we begun the journey of getting married! From start to finish, I’ve loved every minute of arranging a fantastic day for my family and this is because of your collective knowledge, experience and positivity. So many of our guests commented on how wonderful the day was and how relaxed it all was. They often made specific comments about your friendliness, helpfulness and how everyone seemed to go above and beyond at all times. James’ mum said it was the best wedding she had ever been to and that the food was amazing! I would like to extend specific thanks to Matilda, one of the waitresses. She was fantastic on the night and so incredibly friendly. She was there until extremely late and I was so surprised to see her again early in the morning for breakfast, with a smile! She even helped me this morning find the cake and wedding arch.

Dear Laura, Just a little note to thank you and the team for the lovely set up of my wedding afternoon tea on Thursday. We had been moved to the Library and it was lovely. My cake, indian sweets and dates had been beautifully laid out, and the side table for the hot items was well thought out. Chef produced a marvellous afternoon tea and really surpassed himself with the tiny bakewell tarts and chocolate brownies in particular. The scones were lovely and light with really tasty fillings in the sandwiches. Shah really enjoyed the hot indian food elements of the afternoon and particularly praised the tomato, onion and chilli salsa, I think he ate it all himself!! Thank you so much for making this part of our special day so wonderful. With kind regards Lynn (aka Mrs Rahman)

Dear Laura I just wanted to send you an email to say thank you to you and everybody at The Royal Berkshire Hotel for what was an amazing day. Louise and Matt had the perfect wedding, for which we are so grateful. Even though we didn’t manage to have the outdoor ceremony as planned due the unpredictable weather forecast it was still great. All the staff at the hotel were fantastic, the food was amazing and your organisation of the whole day, keeping everything on track and getting people where they needed to be was absolutely spot on. All the guests have remarked on what a brilliant day it was and how beautiful the setting was. You truly have helped to make it the most memorable day for everyone involved. Once again - congratulations to you and all the staff for an amazing job well done!! Warmest regards Danielle Terry (Louise’s mum).

Hi Laura. We wanted to message to say the biggest thank you ever to you and everyone else at the hotel for the most amazing day on Friday. Everything was just perfect, we didn’t have to worry about anything and nothing seemed to be too much trouble, it was superb. The food was incredible too and it all ran so smoothly. Was it Justina and Rob looking after the catering and service side of things? Thank you to you for being amazing, you filled us with so much confidence prior to the wedding that you had everything under control and we weren’t wrong, thank you! Especially when it comes to dad and making sure he was looked after and able to get where he needed to be, apparently the room he was in was fantastic for his needs. We wouldn’t change a thing about our day, it really was magical. I think we might be due a final invoice if there were any extras needed on the day or anything else that I might have forgotten about so just let us know. Thank you once again. Nicola and Nathan Deane!! :)

The Royal Berkshire made our day so special
Venue Service

By Katie & Keith Coleman, on 29 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 06 Jul 2019

My husband & I got married Saturday 6th July 2019. We chose to do our vows in Windsor followed by our wedding breakfast & reception at The Royal Berkshire in Ascot. Laura Brooks was our wedding co-ordinator and she was an absolute dream. On the run up to the wedding she was very responsive and every time we met she was forthcoming with ideas and really accommodating (we asked for our favourite Gin to be stocked and she made it happen). I would recommend The Royal Berkshire to anyone who wants a lovely wedding that still feels private, the food was great and the team were very proactive. Laura particularly made the whole process easy, which is great when you are organising a wedding :)

Hi Laura We are great thanks what an amazing experience we had, it was truly the best day of our lives which was made absolutely perfect with the upmost attention of you and the royal Berkshire staff. The attention to detail was more that we could ever have asked for. Our guests have been complimenting on how well it was coordinated and how attentive and pleasant the staff were, they even say it was the best wedding they have attended. The venue was kept immaculate all evening and even our sweet stand was replenished throughout the night. We are very appreciative of everyone’s effort and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the royal Berkshire to friends and family. Fingers crossed we will have our professional photos within the next couple of weeks, as soon as they arrive we will send some over. We have a little something for you and the team which drop in this Friday.

Hi Laura We just wanted to say we had a fantastic time yesterday. You and team have been truly amazing and made us feel very special. We cannot thank you and the team enough for all your hard work. I haven’t had the official photos yet but have attached some of our friends ones with Barney in them. Once I have the official ones I will let you see if you would like any with Barney in them. My favourite is Barney sniffing my bouquet! Kind regards Jo & Aaron
