Superb, welcoming venue for our wedding.

We got married at the Sir Christopher Wren on 18.08.19. We could not have asked for anywhere better to get married. We had the ceremony outside after a wet start to the day but the staff accomodated what we wanted and set up outside very quickly. Everything ran smoothly from start to finish, from our boat ride to the first dance. I can not thank the staff enough for all they did for us on the day and they were so welcoming polite and happy to help at any point throughout the day. We have to say a special thank you to John for all your organisation skills in helping us plan the day and being at the end of the phone or email whenever we needed you, to Adam and the operations team for all your hard work on the day, making sure the day went to plan and showing us that nothing was too much trouble, and lastly to Rebecca who went above and beyond to help my mum and my sister surprise us by decorating my room the night before the wedding and then the honeymoon suite the night of the wedding. So many of my guests have said what a wonderful day it was and how lovely all the staff were. Overall I recommend this venue as the setting is absolutely beautiful and the staff at the hotel are just wonderful in organising a day you will never forget.

Perfect from start to finish

From the moment we contacted the hotel, the staff were very welcoming and friendly. At the point we met John Griffiths, we knew we were making the right choice in venue. John made everything very easy for us an had some great suggestions to make our day that much more special. The food was on point and our guests emptied all of their plates. The room we were appointed for the ceremony was just the right size for what we wanted. Our overnight stay was fantastic. The bedroom was amazing and we felt as though we were being spoilt by the hotel. We were looked after very well on the day by a gentleman whose name escapes us. In the morning we enjoyed a fantastic spread for breakfast and wasn't sure where to start. All in all, the hotel is out of this world and the staff there match that description. We will certainly be returning to The Sir Christopher Wren in due course.

Mr and Mrs Gorton

We had our wedding reception at the Wren on 31st Aug 2019. The service, food and whole day was exceptional. Guests were surprised at what a wonderful venue this was and particularly the great views of the river and the private bar. Being able to take a river boat cruise from this location to break up the day was very positively received. 10/10 Leading up to the wedding, John was our contact and he was very accommodating and responsive to our requests. Particularly my desire to cover the curtains and photos on the wall, which were all easily covered so do not be deterred by the colour of the curtains if these do not match your colour scheme. Would do it all over again at this venue and best all it the price was very reasonable! Thank you

special is an understatement

Where to start, from the first moment that we met Leanne I knew that our special day would be above and beyond anything we could ever have imagined. The venue is absolutely stunning and we were lucky enough to have one of the first outdoor ceremonies on the beautiful terrace overlooking the Thames. I spent many months in communication with Leanne over all the details and nothing was ever too much trouble. Each step of the way I was guided and helped. What can I say, perfection it was from the moment I arrived on the Friday morning until we left on the Monday afternoon. I would not only like to personally thank Leanne but Danka, Cath, Hirsto, John, Mi Hai, Carl. I do not have names for all the members of staff who made our day, the Best Day Ever, who would have thought that the week before it was due to rain and then we end up with the hottest day of the year at 35 degrees. The team at the Sir Christopher Wren Hotel became my second family and I am very much looking forward to visiting them all very soon. Thank you just is not enough in these circumstances, I know you guys would be saying you are just doing your jobs, but boy do you do your jobs with such passion and commitment. We were truly blessed to have you all be part of the most amazing day of our lives. All our love to you all for giving us a day to remember. If you had not considered the Sir Christopher Wren Hotel for your special day, then please rethink, special is an understatement.

Perfect location, perfect weather, perfect food

Wedding - Saturday 20 April 2019 - Perfect location, perfect weather, perfect food, every member of staff we encountered was extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Special thanks must go to John, the Wedding and Special Events Coordinator who is an absolute credit to the Christopher Wren, what a delight to deal with. From our very first meeting with him we knew we had chosen the right venue. Thanks also to Leanne, in John's absence, for dealing with any queries, Ani and Cath who looked after us brilliantly on the day, the chef and his team for feeding us all so well, and all the bar and waiting staff who were absolutely faultless. We had our dream wedding with many guests commenting on how much they enjoyed themselves. Thank you all, we have a very special place in our heart for your hotel and will be back to celebrate our anniversaries in years to come.

Could Not Be Happier

We held our wedding reception at Sir Christopher Wren, and could not have been happier with the service. The whole team did an excellent job with the planning, from flowers to menu tasting, with frequent meetings to ensure that everything was covered. We had an amazing day!!. A special mention to the Master of Ceremonies, who did a superb job, and made us feel like royalty!! ! The food was outstanding, and we have received many compliments from our guests, saying what a fabulous time they had! Thank you to everyone who made our day so special. It is a day that we shall treasure forever

Very Pleasant

Very pleasant, welcoming staff, attending to every detail along the way. The bedroom was spacious and very comfortable. We slept very well, did not notice any noise. The food was excellent. This included a wedding reception on the Saturday and everything was perfect. The 3-course wedding meal was lovely and the following fruit cake 1st class.

Wedding Reception

We had our wedding and reception at the hotel on 19 August 2017. The food was excellent and the service fantastic Our particular thanks goes the food and beverage manager who guided us seamlessly through the day from putting my shoes on when I arrived by boat to ensuring the wedding ceremony, breakfast, after party and evening buffet ran like clockwork- a true professional and all round amazing guy! The bridal suite was charming and beautifully laid out. We really can't recommend the hotel and its friendly staff highly enough.

The best day

We had the most brilliant wedding reception at Sir Christopher Wren Hotel Windsor. The staff were exceptional, the service we received was beyond what we'd hoped and we truly had the best wedding day. Our guests loved being able to choose their meals and the wine kept flowing. We really appreciated the flexibility which the staff showed during the reception, and the rooms were beautiful.

Fabulous! the answer was always yes!

Our unusual afternoon tea wedding reception with chips and karaoke thrown in went fantastically well. Thank you so so much to the event planners, John, Ivan and Jorge for helping make the day run smoothly together with the receptionists, kitchen and waiting staff and porters all coming together to provide a memorable day. The room was set up for us and we were given time before the big day to decorate it. Our cake was beautifully decorated by the chef. Jorge responded positively to all our requests on the day and everybody had a fabulous time. His announcements were so warm and friendly. The only tiny point of misunderstanding was that we thought it was a Help Yourself buffet. We didn't realise the delicious cream teas etc were to be brought to the tables. (even better). We would have decorated the table with the cake on it much more. The room overlooking the Thames was great and the guests enjoyed the access to the bar and proximity of the loos. A big thank you to the hotel and all the staff.
