We had our wedding here in September 2019 and we couldn't have been more pleased with our day. Nothing was too much trouble and Robyn, our wedding co-ordinator, was fantastic; so approachable and helpful.
We had so many comments from our guests about how lovely the venue had been and how accommodating the staff were.
I was prepared for a few hiccups on the day but to my surprise everything ran very smoothly, not least because of the fantastic Master of Ceremonies who was so friendly and welcoming!
After looking at 9 different venues we settled on having our wedding reception at Voco for a few reasons: The blend of modern decor in an old barn we loved, The conservatory where the main wedding breakfast was to be held was beautiful, The friendly staff were very welcoming, And the wedding co ordinator, Robyn, was very down to earth and understanding of what we wanted on our special day.
On the lead up to and on the day itself, the service and accommodating nature of the staff were second to none. We both received such nice reviews from our guests as well about how good the staff were. The bedrooms and in particular the beds were also highly praised from all our guests.
On reflection, it’s hard to imagine how the day could have gone any better. Maybe the weather? But it was 4 days before Christmas so we did expect it. This was all mainly down to the efforts of Robyn and her team behind her.
We had our wedding at Voco Oxford Thames in May 2019 and it was the best venue we could have asked for. We were able to get married outside under the gazebo, which was incredibly special. The venue is stunning and many of our guests commented on how idyllic the setting was. Robyn could not have been more helpful and lovely throughout the entire process and they were extremely accommodating to all our requests. Everything about the day went so smoothly - they thought of everything so we did not have to. Even when timings did not go to plan as the speeches overran they adapted and dealt with it without any stress to us. Thank you so much Voco for an unforgettable and perfect day!
We had our wedding at Voco Oxford Thames in August 2019 and we couldn’t of asked for a more perfect day and weekend. We wanted somewhere that could accommodate our large wedding where everything was all under one roof and guests could have a long weekend break to. From the moment we walked into the hotel we knew this was the place for our wedding, the hotel is beautiful, the grounds are stunning, food is yummy and the staff are absolutely amazing and cannot do enough to help you. Robyn was particularly outstanding in organising our day and everything running so smoothly. Our family and friends are still raving about the day! Thank you Voco Oxford Thames would recommend you to any couple looking to have their special day with you. Take care. X
Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review! Your wedding was so fun to organise and host so thank you for choosing us for your perfect day!
Hope to see you again soon, Robyn :)

We booked the voco as it had many thing that we were looking for and one of the main things was accommodation as we had a lot of family who would be travelling from different countries and wanted everyone to stay together. We couldn’t have been happier with our choice, we used the conservatory, Oxford suite, river side and other areas within the hotel and our day was just magical.
The staff from day one at the wedding fair until checking out the morning after the wedding were more than helpful and could not have done enough to accommodate our requests and needs along with the requests and needs of our family and friends.
We were nervous about the hotel being set up as we wouldn’t be there on the morning but on arrival, the place looked just how we had imagined and Robyn and the team had done an amazing job.
Hi Dawn and Ronnie,
Thank you for your review! We love that we could accommodate your guests and at a preferential rate too! Your wedding and decor was beautiful and we loved having you and your guests here.
We got married on 2nd August 2019 at the Voco and it was the best day of my life, it couldn’t have been more perfect, the staff were fantastic and Robyn was amazing, she organised everything so well, kept me calm and made sure all the timings were stuck too. We can’t thank her enough for how perfect the day was as without her it wouldn’t have been how it was. The location and grounds are beautiful. I wouldn’t have changed any of it for the world. The lead up to the wedding was perfect too. Thank you Voco Thames!
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We loved your wedding! I will be sure to pass on your thanks to the team.
Wishing you all the best, Robyn.

Our wedding day in September was truly a day to remember, every thing was perfect and just so special, how we both imagined our day to be with everything running so smoothly. We could not fault anything and with the help of our wedding coordinator Robyn making us feel at ease from booking the day to the actual wedding day we would reccomend this venue over and over again..tracy and john hewitt

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your colleagues for the amazing job everyone did on our wedding day! My guests were blown away not only by the beautiful venue but the food and how helpful the staff were! It was flawless from start to finish! The Master of Ceremony was so helpful and super friendly. He definitely made the day go very smoothly! I was fully prepared that there is no such thing as the perfect day and that there would be hiccups but as far as I’m aware there were none! It was genuinely the best day!
