We had a great day!
Venue Service

By Rachel Parker, on 21 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 31 Jul 2015

We got married at Royal Holloway in July 2015. We had a great day and our guests couldn't believe how amazing the setting was. The team were great in helping us to organise every part of our day and taking as much stress away as possible.

It was such an amazing day

My husband and I got married in the Chapel at Royal Holloway and had our wedding reception in the Picture Gallery and Crosslands. It was such an amazing day. The team worked tirelessly to make the day exactly as we wanted. Nothing was too much to ask for and every detail was taken care of with precision. The venue is beyond beautiful! I cannot thank all the staff enough. You are absolute stars!

Everything about the day was perfect

Everything about the day was perfect: the venue, the catering and the weather. The staff were absolutely amazing, so efficient, friendly and polite. They looked as though they were enjoying the event themselves! Thank you to Royal Holloway and all of the staff for making it the best day of Debbie and Rob’s life.

The perfect venue for the perfect day!

Royal Holloway has a special place in our hearts as we both went to university there, so we knew that was where we wanted to get married. This also meant that, knowing RHUL, we had high expectations. They didn't disappoint! From our first enquiry to the moment we left Founders on the evening of our wedding day, the whole experience was faultless. Royal Holloway will go above and beyond to ensure your wedding day is everything you have dreamed of! We would highly recommend this beautiful and historic building and it's incredible staff time and time again. In one word: Perfect.

We would like to thank you, Sam and all of your colleagues for making our wedding such a success. We have received lots of letters from friends and family comlimenting us on the menu, venue and the lovely idea such as the ice lollies and fun packs for the kids which we fully admitted were all down to the staff at RHUL! It truly was the best day of our lives We would be more than happy to recommend you and your team for any future events

The reception in Crosslands was everything I had hoped for and more. People could mingle, chat, enjoy a drink and some food, and relax. The atmosphere was wonderful; I went from table to table, and absolutely everyone was enjoying it.

My wife and I would like to thank you for all your helop at the wedding of my daughter on 31st July. I know there were many changes and demands but you and your staff coped effortlessly to make the day run smoothly and to be so special. The food was excellent and every plate was attractively and appetisingly presented. We were also grateful for the help and access during the build up and breakdown days. I must mention especially Dace, Samantha and Security Staff who could not have done more in what can be very fraught periods.

Just a note to say how pleased we were with everything at our wedding reception on Saturday. You and your colleagues did a wonderful job. The guests were really impressed with Royal Holloway and everyone thought the food and service were excellent at both the wedding breakfast and evening party. Those who stayed at The Hub and Gowar were really happy with the accommodation and breakfasts. With very best wishes
