What an absolutely incredible day and we even had sunshine! A day like our Wedding day does not happen without a lot of care and attention to detail. Cristina was a star through the whole process, always professional but kind and considerate when family problems arose. It’s been fun, not stressful, planning our day and it couldn’t have been more perfect.
Chris and David on Concierge throughout the weekend couldn’t do enough for us all. David was a complete gentleman and my Mum and Dad send their appreciation for his running around on their behalf. The Wedding Breakfast was excellent we had a lot of ‘the meal was delicious’ ‘oh my god the Beef was to die for comments’ So thank you to Ete and his talented team. I would like to also thank Jorge for calmly (or so it seemed!) sorting things behind the scenes and being our very capable Toastmaster and generally keeping us focused when we needed to get things done.
We wanted to say thank you to Cristina again for making our wedding the most perfect day ever. All of the staff went above and beyond our expectations. Jorge was also fantastic, letting me come and see the room multiple times during set up to make sure it was all perfect.
We had a beautiful ceremony at the Macdonald Compleat Angler Hotel. The attention to detail and support from everyone in the events team was fantastic. The Thames room looked fabulous and we loved having one big table for all of our guests. The food was delicious! All in all a brilliant day - we couldn't recommend it highly enough.
Thank you and all of the members of the catering and events team at the Compleat Angler for helping to make our wedding on Saturday such an enjoyable and memorable occasion for us, and for all our guests. In particular, could you please thank Brahim for his calmness, efficiency and coordination; managing to keep things turning round even when the reception overran. Phyllis noticed on a video that he even sorted out her train as she walked down the aisle, he was a real star.
Date of Wedding 27 Oct 2018 I felt very reassured as soon as I spoke to Cristina the first time. Also, Brahim was just the best, kept everything on track and everyone calm. He really is a superstar; the hotel are lucky to have him. In fact all of the staff at the hotel were so helpful, my family have all commented on how nice the staff were. Housekeeping were good too and promptly cleaned the bridal suite and tidied it up for me which was really helpful. Our wedding really couldn’t have gone any better, to say it exceeded my expectations would be an understatement. I’m so pleased we chose the Compleat Angler.
My wedding was fantastic. So much space to move around. Such lovely, helpful staff. The wedding breakfast is lovely and the staff kept the room tidy and topped up during it. ? Everything ran so smoothly. Food was amazing and the bbq food was over flowing, bubbly on a boat trip along the thames was also fantastic. They accommodated all my meeds and wants. 100/10 Highly recommended. Thank-you, Every single staff member was fantastic. So very helpful ??. I will be coming back in a few years to re new my wedding vows and do it all over again
Dear Adele, Ibrahim, Gavin and all staff at The Compleat Angler, We're emailing to say thank you for hosting an amazing wedding for us. Apart from our a few dramas (nothing to do with the hotel!) our wedding ran smoothly and we loved every minute of it. Our guests have commented how lovely the food was and we are in complete agreement. We felt as if everything was served to perfection and the timings were accurate. The toast master also helped proceedings and it was great as bride and groom to take a back seat and know that everything was taken care of. Thank you Ibrahim for creatively arranging our decorations and for an excellent looking gift/guest book table you so much for the gorgeous gold seat sashes, they looked lovely. Thank you also for making sure my Uncle was taken care of when he was unwell, whilst ensuring the wedding reception was disrupted as little as possible. Our guests commented on what a gorgeous location it was and loved the hotel rooms that they stayed in. Thank you again so much for all your efforts and making it a truly special day for the two of us, we can not sing your praises high enough!!
Thank you so much for the very professional and helpful way in which you handled our Wedding Celebration on the 5th October 2014. It was a wonderful event, which was enjoyed by everyone. The success was entirely due to the way your Team at the Compleat Angler handled everything from the initial discussions right the way through to the organisation on the day. Your Team were highly efficient and everyone was stunned by the magnificent way in which the room was presented on the day. As the weather was sunny, it was delightful to be able to use the lawns outside the hotel with the views across the river. The menu and the quality of the food was very special and many of our guests remarked on how well presented everything was. James’ operational team, which was led by Giovanni offered all the drinks and the food in a relaxed and highly professional manner. All of our guests commented on how successful the event had been and said how much they had enjoyed the day. It was an extremely happy occasion and one that we shall remember forever. We have nothing but praise for you and your team at the hotel. You were helpful in every respect and your recommendations regarding the floral arrangements, table plans, covers for the seating and Jane Lister, the Harpist, meant that every detail was thought about, planned and organised to perfection. We should like to thank you Allison and your Team Leader Marion and James, the Hotel’s Operations Manager for handling everything so successfully and in such a sensitive way. Finally, we would not hesitate to recommend The Compleat Angler to anyone who wishes to have the perfect venue, perfect menu, perfect service and a perfect day.
Thank you so much for all your help to arrange our special day on Sunday. The front lawn looked just amazing, with such a beautiful backdrop of the bridge and church. The canapés, drinks and afternoon tea all worked really well to create the sophisticated afternoon we wanted, something the Compleat Angler created perfectly. Having afternoon tea really worked well with what we wanted to create for a relaxing afternoon. The presentation of food was so lovely too. Your banqueting staff served up all the additional savouries to everyone so that was a nice addition with the afternoon tea. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed staying at the Compleat Angler. Thank you again for our lovely event it was a perfect day. Staying in room 14 your room with the bridge and church view made our visit even more special, so it was great to arrange before we arrived.
Just wanted to drop a note of thanks for organising our special evening on Saturday 27th September 2014. We and our guests had an amazing evening, the weather was superb, the function rooms were set up really well, the food was prepared and displayed creatively and all staff were of high customer service, especially Giovanni, special thanks to him please. All of this wouldn’t have been possible without somebody like you organising every detail, so big thanks to you Alison.
