We booked the London Rowing Club for a number of reasons - it's amazingly well located, beautifully decorated and perfect for the relaxed and non traditional wedding that we wanted. To top it off, it came complete with a fantastic Venue Manager, Olivia! Olivia was brilliantly helpful over the year and three months leading up to the wedding. She was always on hand to answer any questions we had and always made herself available for us to come back to the venue whenever we wanted. She's very experienced and knowledgeable and her advice helped us plan the best day of our lives. On the day itself, Olivia, the Bar Manager and the rest of the team completely blew us away with how lovely, fun, efficient, helpful and professional they all were. Such a brilliant team and it really made the day for us. We can't recommend this venue enough!
''I just wanted to say a big thank you for organising and hosting our Christmas Party on Friday night. It was a great success and has been labelled the ‘best Scott Dunn party ever’, so I can’t thank you enough! Tom, the Bar Manager was fantastic and incredibly helpful on the night, even when one or two of us had had one too many jaeger bombs.
''I just wanted to write to say thank you so much to you and the team for helping my Dad's wake to go so well. The venue was of course beautiful, but it was your kindness and willingness to accommodate our requests that really added to the ease of the day and helped to make it special. We are extremely grateful.''
FUNERAL & WAKE
''Olivia, thank you to you and the team at LRC. I'm not sure that I can adequately express how much we loved having our wedding with you. The venue was perfect. Having the ceremony and wedding breakfast in the same venue made things so much easier. I have had friends who have been totally stressed out by their weddings and I keep telling everyone to come to you as I couldn't have been more relaxed knowing that everything was thought of and carried out. You're brilliant, Olivia and we owe the success of the day to you and all the team at LRC. Having family and friends flying in from Australia for the day meant that we wanted something special that we would never forget and you made that happen.''
“I really just wanted to pass on a massive thank you before we leave for our honeymoon on Wednesday. Everything went so incredibly smoothly on Saturday and that was entirely down to you and the staff at the venue – I spent most of the day in a state of happy bewilderment, and it was so reassuring to have people who actually knew what they were doing to make sure everything went to plan.”
Wedding organised from Paris
“The whole atmosphere of the night was just what I hoped it would be and all the team just made it so fantastic. Many thanks again for everything and hope all the plans for the club go well this year and I hope to speak in the future about the next! Please thank everyone from me for helping pull together the night... the whole night raised just over £4k profit for charity so I was really happy.”
Samaritans Charity Dinner
“I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for being so absolutely fantastic on Saturday at LRC and for helping us to provide a first rate event for our senior management team and their guests. The passes we provided for the members were well managed by you and there were no issues on the day. Thanks again Olivia and here’s to working with you again in the lead up to the 2016 races.”
BNY Mellon – Boat Race Day
“I cannot thank you enough for making our wedding day so special! Everything was perfect- there’s simply no other way to put it in words! The bar staff were wonderful and made everyone laugh and certainly added to the fun atmosphere, please pass my thanks to them as well. I got so many compliments from the guests about the venue, the decorations and the staff and everyone had a great time!”
“I wanted to thank you and the team for all you did to make my 70th birthday party the great success that it turned out to be. A number of people at the party commented how attractive the venue is, and what a friendly atmosphere the place has. The caterer, who sees many such venues, told me she was impressed and found you all very friendly. Again so many thanks for everything!”
70th Birthday Party
“We’ve seen 10 venues so far, out of all those it is London Rowing Club that we like the most, we were very encouraged by your helpfulness and assistance with ideas, and the impressions we got from the caterers you recommended. It is important to us that we can work with our chosen venue to help us with the little touches to make the day special and we think you could really support us with that.”
“I’m the photographer from Saturday’s wedding and just wanted to touch base. I really loved shooting at the rowing club, it’s a gorgeous venue with a brilliant staff team. Often as the photographer venues can make you feel a little like a second class citizen. Your team at the rowing club were brilliant and made the evening a lot more enjoyable for me. Pass on my thanks to the staff.”
“I can’t thank Olivia and her team at London Rowing Club enough for making our wedding day so perfect! She stepped in at the 11th hour to take over the organisation, didn’t flap when the florist failed to turn up and still managed to make the room look beautiful. Her attention to detail and organisational skills were exceptional and she thought of many things we’d never even considered – and even though it poured down all day for our wedding, the riverside location was still amazing.”
