Wedding Reception 1 September 2018
We are not a young couple and have experienced high end hospitality all over the world including the very best cruise ships. Our experience at Westminster College exceeded all our expectations. Food was absolutely first class, real quality produce and presentation wonderful. Everything went like clockwork thanks to Hannah and her team. We cannot recommend Westminster College enough. This is not just our opinion, it is that of our guests of similar standing that considered this to be one of the best weddings they have been to. Our heartfelt thanks Hannah and team from both of us.
Wonderful winter wedding at Westminster
Westminster made realising our vision for the day really easy. After discussing our design ideas with Hannah, just ahead of the day we dropped off all manner of table and venue dressings – and came back to find the rooms beautifully set. We were genuinely impressed.
What also really set the venue apart for us was the suite of beautiful rooms which were included in the booking. We loved the barrel-vaulted main hall for our wedding breakfast and ceilidh, and made full use of the Assembly Room and Lodge beyond for our guests to find some more private space. Given the large number of children we had attending, and having a winter wedding, the modern Cheshunt Room which we used as a children’s play room made the day for many of our guests.
Also worth a mention is the quality of the food – which was top notch (and we shall probably never forget our menu tasting…) and chef’s flexibility in meeting our guests’ dietary requirements with a complete commitment to flavours. Westminster also went above and beyond sourcing exactly the cheese we wanted for our evening buffet.
Thank you to all the staff at Westminster who made the day so enjoyable for us and our guests.
