Picturesque romantic riverside setting

I have just had the most amazing wedding reception at the Shillingford Bridge hotel. I had a bespoke wedding tailored to my individual style. Rob, Scott and Lauren (the team) went out of their way to ensure my day was perfect. I wanted a Caribbean menu and the chef was first class. He laid on tasting sessions to make sure we were happy. The food was superb, all my guests complimented it. We had our wedding breakfast overlooking the river, the room looked stunning, our disco was in the Thames suite which was decorated in a Hollywood theme. Leading up to wedding the team were so helpful answering any queries immediately. I could not fault them. Ours was a large wedding but they were able to accommodate our budget. I would thoroughly recommend the Shillingford Bridge.
