Thank you so much for all your help and advice in the run up to, and on, our wedding day. Your recommendations, suggestions and answers to all our numerous questions were so appreciated and helped make the planning process a much easier job. We had the most perfect day, as did our guests, who all commented on what a beautiful and perfect setting Royal Holloway had been for our wedding.

Best wedding we have ever been to!
Venue Service

By Mother of the bride, on 29 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2016

We would like to say a big “thank you” to everyone involved in the preparation, planning and co-ordination of our daughter’s wedding and for ensuring that everything went smoothly on the day. My family and guests were amazed at the beautiful chapel, the historic Picture Gallery and the wonderful architecture of the buildings and grounds. The wedding breakfast was presented beautifully and it was noted that everyone was served quickly and efficiently at each course. Many of our guests have commented that it was the best wedding they have ever been to and we certainly agree with them. We stayed overnight at The Hub and we were impressed by the quality of the room and breakfast. Thank you all so much for making this special family occasion, truly extra special.

The setting is absolutely stunning
Venue Service

By Nicky Keyes, on 29 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Aug 2016

The setting is absolutely stunning and our wedding guests continually commented about how beautiful the venue was. Not only was the venue amazing but so were the team of staff who helped us in the lead up to the day and on the day itself. We had several quite specific requests and they met every single one of these. Thank you for helping us plan everything, responding to all our lengthy emails and making sure everything would turn out just as we hoped and also in orchestrating the smooth running of the day itself. We had the most amazing day and all our guests commented about how much of a wonderful time they had had. Thank you so much for all your help – we would highly recommend Royal Holloway as a venue for a wedding or any other occasion!
