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.
