Absolutely perfect!

Royal Berkshire gave us the perfect wedding day! Our day was absolutely perfect and completely exceeded expectations because of how excellent the venue was. The staff were absolutely amazing – lots of guests have messaged us saying how lovely and helpful all the staff were. They have commented about how the wedding felt effortless – we couldn’t agree more!

We were delighted with the wedding breakfast room setup – extra touches like using the rose petals to scatter on the cake table and welcome table which is something we didn’t ask them to do. Guests have been raving about the food – we knew the food would be excellent from our tasting day, but wow it was even better on the day. The evening food was brilliant too. Our guests were so impressed by the beautiful grounds at the hotel, and said that the breakfast the morning of and after the wedding was very very good.

Dominika, the wedding manager, from the moment we met her, was absolutely amazing! – so organised, reassuring, adaptable, fun and she gave such great advice that really helped us with our planning. Planning a wedding at the Royal Berkshire has been such an enjoyable experience because of Dominika and her fantastic team. We really cannot speak highly enough of the staff there! If you are looking for the perfect wedding venue, do not hesitate - book the Royal Berkshire.

Simple the best!!

We came to visit The Royal Berkshire back in February 2020 before lockdown. We meet the lovely Evie and after that meeting we know we found the venue of our dreams!! And booked straight away!!

After lockdown staff had changed and we went through a couple of temporary wedding coordinators. I must say the communication was lacking and I found myself feeling very nervous and not sure who was looking after our big day.

Then something magical happened! The Royal Berkshire found the perfect team! And we was met by the Lovely Dominika who invited us in for a chat. We spoke about the day, voiced our concerns and we were heard, listened to and reassured that our wedding was in good hands.

The venue invited us to an open evening, where they had revamped the wedding space to update it, we were able to check out the new fresh rooms and try the delicious canapés.

Near the time of the wedding we did our menu tasting. We were given a choice of food and wines to try for the big day.

2 months away from the wedding, we was given our personal wedding coordinator for the day it’s self!! The lovely Lydia!! At first I was a little upset that Dominika was not going to look after the day it’s self! But we met with Lydia and fell in love!! She saw my vision my bible book!! And loved it!!

The Friday before the wedding we had are final handover with Lydia who was looking after the day of the wedding and Sam who was looking after the evening part of the wedding. The handover was perfect we went through all the details and was happy.

The wedding was a big success with no hiccups, Lydia was able to take everything from my wedding planner and make my vision come true.

I want to say a big Thank you!!!!
The Royal Berkshire is a home away from Home. With the best wedding team!!

A massive Thank you!! To Lydia your an amazing person, you made the final process so easy and made us feel so relaxed towards the end. We had a great laugh with you, keep being you!!.

A big Thank you!! To Sam you helped the evening run so smoothly. I wish you all the very best for your upcoming engagement! She will say YES!! With the plan you have and how sharp you will look in the tie!!

I’m left to say, if you’re looking for the best venue with the best staff! Look no one!! Check their page and website out!! Say Amy sent us here!! You won’t be disappointed!!

Thank you Royal Berkshire!!

More than we expected

Dominika and all the team at Royal Berkshire made our wedding day so special. They accommodated all our requests and were the nicest at every interaction. The day of our wedding was perfect thanks to them, we could not have wished for more. The food was delicious, beverages kept flowing, the grounds are gorgeous, the staff make everything seem easy and nothing is too much trouble. I would highly recommend.

Our perfect day

We had the absolute perfect wedding day. We’d like to give a huge thanks to all the staff at Royal Berkshire, especially Dominika who made us feel at ease throughout and able to just relax and enjoy our day! We had quite a few different events and items to consider throughout the day, being a multi-cultural wedding and all our requests were accommodated and we were left to just enjoy the day as it unfolded.

We loved the grounds, the amazing trees, walled garden, roses and the stunning colours at every time of year that we visited the venue. We had just over 130 guests and the size of the venue was perfect for our needs. The overriding feeling of the day though was how much happiness there was in the air.

Absolutely amazing!

100% recommend! We honestly cannot recommend Royal Berkshire Hotel enough. From our very first meeting with Dominika, we knew this was the venue for us. Even before we booked, Dominika and the team were always quick to answer any questions we had. Every time we visited the venue, we were greeted with a smile and everyone was so friendly. Before the wedding, we were invited to see the hotel after a refurb which was a lovely evening of drinks and canapés. The menu tasting was also amazing, all the food and wine were great, it was difficult to choose our final menu!

The staff at Royal Berkshire are second to none. Dominika and the wedding team made everything so easy for us and the whole wedding day went perfectly because of them. Also, the kitchen staff were so accommodating of various food allergies and intolerances our guests had, and everything was as delicious as the menu tasting, if not better!

If you want to get married in a beautiful venue with stunning gardens and the nicest and most helpful staff possible, Royal Berkshire Hotel is the venue for you!

Fantastic!

We had our wedding reception at Royal Berkshire and it was amazing!! It is a lovely venue, with beautiful grounds and great photo opportunities!
Cheyenne in particular was so incredibly helpful from start to finish and particularly during a time of having to postpone due to covid! She was professional, very supportive in dealing with my constant emails and made the process of having to postpone as stress free as possible!
On the day itself, the team were very welcoming, helpful and did such a fantastic job in setting up the room. A lot of our guests commented on how beautiful it looked!
We would highly recommend Royal Berkshire!

Thank You!

We literally had the best day, loved every minute of it but cannot believe it is all over and done with now...honeymoon to look forward to.

We do have some feedback, please see below;

I would just like to say how fantastic Justyna was. Literally she was on hand at any time and was always making sure everything was perfect for us, even my sisters pointed out after the wedding how attentive she was and wanting to make sure everybody had the perfect time. I would really like you to pass this feedback on to her and her manager as I think it is really important that she knows just how thankful we are that she was part of our day. Overall the service from you all was also fantastic, there was always somebody nearby if we needed anything
The food...AMAZING! So many people commented on how lovely the food was, from the canapes through to the wedding breakfast and the evening food. Marc did speak with the chef to pass on the great feedback but again, if you wouldn't mind passing this on again, we would very much appreciate it.

Overall though we would like to thank Royal Berkshire for part hosting literally the best days of our lives. The day was perfect and glad we picked such a beautiful hotel. We will definitely be visiting for drinks on occasion as the place will stay close to us.

Most Perfect Wedding Day!

Thank you so much for helping us create the most perfect wedding day!

I would love to thank Rob. We was so kind, patient and I loved having him a part of the day!

The girl on the music - she was perfect. Everything was seamless!

The dark haired man on reception couldn’t do enough to help everyone with lugging buggies and fetching things!

To the whole team - they are an absolute credit to the hotel. Everyone was so friendly, helpful and professional. All the vendors and registrars have said the staff are absolutely the most friendly they have ever worked with!
Everything was perfect.

Amazing Day

We’d just like to say thank you to you and the team at the Royal Berkshire for organising our wedding. We had the most amazing day, it all went perfectly and all of the guests have said how nice the venue was.

Rob in particular was fantastic during the handover meeting and on the day, he sorted out any minor problems instantly and kept us continuously informed for which we were really grateful.

Our August Wedding

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.

The most perfect, fantastic, wonderful wedding day

We had, without a doubt, the most perfect, fantastic, wonderful wedding day we could have hoped for.

We really can’t thank you, your team, the coordinator (Rob), the Chefs and all the staff at the RB enough. Everyone was so professional, helpful, kind and courteous. There were bound to be a few minor issues with so many people attending and staying at the venue - but nothing was a problem for any of you.

The day after we had nothing but compliments from everyone on the EVERYTHING – venue (how beautiful it is), ceremony the day before, staff, food, service, location…..

We’d love to do it all over again – and I know it will be a few days that Yvonne & I will never, ever, forget.

Sophie & James - 11th August PART 2

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!

Sophie & James - 11th August 2019 PART 1

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.

Mr & Mrs Rahman - 8th August 2019

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)
