    We had our wedding here this weekend and had such an amazing day. We choose this venue as it is in a beautiful location, with tasteful decor and very competitive wedding packages.

    We wanted our wedding to be simple and uncomplicated so choose to go for a surprise wedding telling our guests they were coming for a birthday/engagement party. The Riverside were fantastic and helped us to plan a seamless event and coordinated the whole evening. The rooms looked amazing, staff were friendly and helpful and the food was delicious (all 53 of our guests were served a lovely hot meal all at the same time!)

    Thank you for making our day so special.

    Officially the best day of our life! Me and Rob got married here after almost 10 years together, the place where our story started and the place where our next chapter begins. We want to say the biggest thank you ever to all of the team, especially Karen, Simon, Tom and Jess. The four of you ensured our day ran as perfect as it could have done, it literally was perfect. I am such an organised freak that every item was boxed and tagged and the reception was full when we dropped everything off much to Simon's delight. I was nervous about handing over control of the setting up but I must admit I couldn't have done it any better myself, I was overwhelmed when we had that room reveal, best moment ever. The food was flawless, timings were perfect, staff were phenomenal in helping us feel relaxed, the bridal suite was gorgeous. Again thank you to everyone especially the previous 4 named, we can't thank you enough

    We had our wedding day 3weeks ago today. Right from booking our wedding Karen couldn't have been more helpful if she tried. On the day Karen & Kat made us feel at ease, communicated with us both all day to make sure we were at the right place at the right time. They certainly took away all the stress for us both. Nothing was ever too much trouble & we got the wedding of our dreams. We would highly recommend getting married at here.
    Thank you Karen, Kat and the team for everything.
