The most perfect day ever.
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 got married at the Compleat Angler and I’m so pleased we chose this hotel over some others. We mainly chose it because of the location and scenery – I had seen some other couples’ wedding photos and thought how beautiful the scenery looked. But also it was the perfect size for the number of guests we had attending – 46 in total. Well, the day couldn’t have gone any better – it was beyond our expectations. Everything ran like clockwork and the staff couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Brahim, he knows his stuff and kept everything under control, he was just brilliant. Also Christina our wedding co-ordinator; was a relatively new employee but she was totally in control and made some very helpful suggestions for our day. The wedding breakfast was delicious – everyone commented on how tasty and nice it was. All in all the hotel is very well run – the manager runs a tight ship and has very good staff – a brilliant team. So many of the wedding party have since commented how friendly the staff were at the hotel. I can’t thank the Compleat Angler enough – we have amazing memories of our Wedding Day and we can’t wait to return after Christmas. If you are considering having your wedding or wedding reception at the Compleat Angler – don’t hesitate – do it.

All in all a brilliant day!
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.

Such an enjoyable and memorable occasion for us!
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.

It really could not have gone any better!
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.

Summer Wedding
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.
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

Difficult to find fault
Thank you to you, Brahim and the rest of the Compleat Angler team for helping us to celebrate our wedding yesterday.

Sax and Honey provided the right atmosphere;
Overall very professional team - and thank you for organising a dry day, warm but not too hot
