Mr & Mrs Wagner - 1st June
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Wagner, on 06 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2019

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

Mr & Mrs Turk - 19th May
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Turk, on 06 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 19 May 2019

The Royal Berkshire was just magical and PERFECT in every single way. We chose it, as we were looking for a venue close to home that we could have PRIVATELY for our WEDDING, and my word we could not have chosen a better venue or location. Our wedding was on Sunday 19th May, just a few days ago, and I am literally still on a high, the food, the staff, the way the venue leant itself for all our little quirky requests was truly outstanding. We had an afternoon tea on the lawns, drinks reception in the bar, an extremely romantic beautiful alfresco ceremony in the Walled Garden, a silent disco under the 'stars' and then a simply stunning meal and entire evening of amazing celebrations in the Berkshire Suite. This venue absolutely nailed every single detail, it was punctual, seamless, professional but also very relaxed and attentive. We absolutely loved it, as did our 140 guests, and this isn't the first time we've used it for a function, our charity event 1.5 years ago was equally amazing. I would 100% recommend this venue for so many reasons. OUTSTANDING. AMAZING. PERFECT!’

It was such a pleasure to have met you and we can’t thank you enough for seeing that our day went by without a hitch. We are both so pleased that we chose Royal Berks as our wedding venue not only because the venue is beautiful, there’s so many beautiful venues around, but mainly because of the people. Colleen & Co made us feel like VIPs from the day we first went there and it was with a tinge of sadness that we learnt she left. However, you picked up the ball before it hit the ground and gave us an unrivalled wedding experience. Thank you! Your professionalism shone through time and again, making us feel that our wedding was the most important event in your diary and I really valued your girly enthusiasm for all the detail. You made me feel like the most special bride and us the most special couple during the whole process - calming my nerves whenever I felt overwhelmed and answering Phil’s repeated and endless questions about the rooms, microphones and music. We never felt any pressure from you as you moved things along, obtaining all the information and details needed. Our guests had a wonderful time - everything was magic, from the ceremony room to the delightful wedding breakfast room. Thanks also for looking after the guests with champagne in the very long receiving line. No detail was too small not to be important to you and the staff – from the people in reception through to catering we experienced the absolute best and Nigel made an impression second to none. We’re sure there will be many more wonderful and special weddings at the Royal Berks with everyone feeling as special as we did.

Six weeks before the big day we were told by our original venue that they were cancelling our wedding. Our world fell apart and we were lost .... until we met Laura at the Royal Berkshire Hotel. Laura turned one of the biggest nightmares we had ever faced into one of the greatest miracles. With six weeks to reorganise the whole wedding, Laura made it so easy and effortless and accommodated every request we had. She dealt with every concern and worry we had and eased any stress we were feeling, greeting us with a glass of bubbly on every visit and reassuring us that she had everything under control. I genuinely believe fate played a big role in having our wedding at the Royal Berkshire and was a million times better than we ever could have imagined it would be at the original venue. On the wedding day Laura was there from the moment we were up. The organisation was flawless from beginning to end and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. Laura and her team were there for us and our guests at every point of the day and couldn't do enough for us. Talking to friends and family, everyone said how amazing the wedding was and how genuine and caring all the staff were at the venue, especially Laura. We couldn't have asked for more. Laura, in mine and my husbands eyes, you are already Wedding Coordinator of the Year and after the nightmare we occurred only six weeks before our wedding, we could not have got luckier by meeting you.

Hi Laura, Thank you so much. We are now happily settled into married life. We love that photo as well and can’t wait to see the rest! With regards to feedback - we were really appreciated all the flexibility to make our wedding suit us and all our guests. The food was second to none. We really love the hotel's setting, very relaxed and comfortable, and all the staff were very friendly, nice and helpful. Special thank you to you, communication was easy and the planning process was straight forward, easy to follow and we knew everything was going to be just fine! Again, thank you so much! It really was an amazing day! One of our guests got us an afternoon tea so we will be back very soon! Best wishes, Rachael and Jake

A wonderful wedding venue
Venue Service

By Damien Honey, on 28 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2018

We have been lucky enough to visit the Royal Berkshire several times over the last 18 months and have simply fallen in love with the place. From the moment you arrive at the Royal Berkshire there is a wow factor with the grand drive up to the hotel. You then get a first sight of the lovely hotel and the splendid and incredibly spacious grounds from the car park. We have eaten there on several occasions and sampled their afternoon tea. The food has been excellent and we’ve had no complaints with the friendly but formal service. We chose to have our wedding at the Royal Berkshire and we couldn’t have wished for a better place. We had an excellent Wedding Planner in Colleen who catered for everything that we wanted whilst making some very helpful suggestions and additions and most importantly made us feel so at ease on every visit, that we never once felt stressed. Rooms are very comfortable and lots of different styles and even though we got married in a heatwave, we were put at comfort by the hotel supplying several fans in the rooms. On the day the hotel looked incredible and the staff, the food and the surroundings simply made for the perfect day. Would highly recommend the Royal Berkshire as both a lovely place to visit or to get married at. The Royal Berkshire is at its best in nice weather as the grounds are so stunning, so there is some luck involved, but the inside areas are big enough to cater for everyone. Rooms are very comfortable and lots of different styles and even though we got married in a heatwave, we were put at comfort by the hotel supplying several fans in the rooms.

Thank You

Hi Colleen and Lindsey, I honestly don’t even know where to begin in thanking you for everything you did to make the wedding of our dreams come true! The entire team, bar staff, serving staff, operations staff, sales, food and beverage were all absolutely incredible! Colleen and Lindsey you have the patience of a saint as I know we were pretty demanding at times but you were always fantastic ensuring we were happy and not stressed with anything regarding the wedding. Colleen on the day and the week before the wedding I can’t thank you enough for everything you did, you were incredible and went beyond the call of duty on the day. We honestly had the best day of our lives and both cried leaving the hotel from tears of joy. Our guests can’t stop talking about the event and how amazing the Royal Berkshire was as a venue and how efficient the staff were. I would also like to make a special mention to Steve and Maria who are complete hero’s and the best operations staff I have ever come across. I don’t think I saw them stop at any point. They were incredible and they both just made it run so smoothly. My parents would also like to extend their thanks. They had the most amazing weekend and were blown away by everyone at the Royal Berkshire. I could honestly go on and on about everything you guys did. Thank you from us both for your tireless effort, patience, efficiency and overall just being completely awesome! We can’t wait to come back and the royal Berkshire is such a special place to us! Mr & Mrs Endean

Thank You!

Thank you Lindsey & Colleen for all of your time & support over the last 14 months, you listened to every email and responded back quickly to every silly detailed question, you understood our ideas and with your input too, it all came together to be the perfect day and we couldn't have done it without your support in the planning and lead up to. Thank you to Maria & Edward for being there for us from start to finish on the big day and making sure it all went perfectly to plan. You both paid attention to every detail and were both absolutely lovely, very friendly and professional, which helped make our day extra special and allowed Aidan & I to enjoy the celebrations, knowing everything was under control and our dreams were turning in to a reality. Aidan & I really did have the best days of our lives so far and we cannot fault anything about the day ( other than the heavy rain which unfortunately stopped us being able to use the beautiful gardens) . Everything exceeded our expectations and also our guests expectations, who were all saying how lovely the venue and the staff were throughout the day. Huge thanks to the waiters and bar staff too, who did a fantastic job and never let our glasses get empty. From the day we booked the venue 14 months ago, to the day after the wedding, the service and support was fantastic and we will be highly recommending the hotel for any future weddings or events.

What an Amazing day

My husband and I got married at the Royal Berkshire Hotel on the 22nd April 2017. From the moment we walked through the entrance to the hotel we were greeted by the friendly staff on the reception desk. We were then introduced to Natassia who is the wedding co-ordinator for the hotel. Natassia is such a friendly, bubbly and helpful person. No matter what you asked of her for your wedding she would do her best to get the job done for you and assist in any way she could. The grounds and rooms of the hotel are beautiful! We can not thank Natassia enough for all the help with our wedding day. The day itself ran so smoothly. All the staff on the wedding day were very friendly and helpful. Our wedding breakfast food was great and the evening food was a hit! So much so my husband and I didn't get a chance to have any! The bridal suite we stayed in was amazing. We truly wish we could have our day again! A big thank you to the staff at the Royal Berkshire Hotel but a huge thank you to Natassia!

An Absolute dream
Venue Service

By Karen & Mark Scarbrow, on 09 May 2017Date of Wedding - 18 Feb 2017

Having visited The Royal Berkshire on previous occasions, we had always felt it to be a warm and friendly venue – comfortably grand but not in any way ‘stuffy’ and having looked at several others, decided on it as our wedding venue. From the very outset, on first meeting the Wedding Coordinators Natassia and Lindsey we were impressed by their professional yet warm approach and consistently helpful attitude. Natassia was the person we dealt with most regularly, and she was helpful, efficient and prompt in replying to any queries we had throughout the planning process making it an easy and enjoyable experience. Our wedding day was an absolute dream. We could not have wished for a better experience. Natassia was there early on the day, making sure that every detail was attended to - the function rooms looked superb, the meal was excellent, the service seamless and the staff, without exception, attentive, obliging and charming. Thanks to Natassia, we felt confident and relaxed knowing that everything was taken care of (she even seemed to arrange for the sun to appear – in February!) and Hening and the team made sure that we and our guests were well looked after throughout the wedding reception. Any minor query was dealt with promptly and so we were able to fully concentrate on spending time with our guests and enjoying our day. We really can’t praise the venue highly enough and would recommend without hesitation it as a great wedding venue.
