Macdonald Compleat Angler
Romantically set on one of the loveliest stretches of the River Thames at Marlow, Macdonald Compleat Angler is an idyllic wedding location all year round. This elegant hotel, which takes its name from Izaak Walton's world-famous book on angling, dates back to the 17th century yet remains the perfect setting for a 21st century dream wedding.
The facilities and decor are of the highest standard, confirmed by a four AA Red Star grading which is only given to hotels that stand out as the very best in the UK. Macdonald Compleat Angler has always held a special place when it comes to selecting a wedding venue. It offers a stunning reception venue and is licensed for civil ceremonies. Alternatively, the bridal couple can also tie the knot in the beautiful church on the opposite river bank.
The hotel's elegant banqueting suite offers a flexible combination of versatile rooms, decorated in regency style and able to accommodation up to 120 guests for a wedding breakfast. With its panoramic windows, the terrace has stunning views across the hotel's lush green lawn to the river, which is lit up at night with reflections from its banks and passing boats. Combine this with the gentle tones of a harpist, or pianist and you have the perfect place for Champagne cocktails.
The hotel's head chef, Michael Lloyd, overseas the wedding catering as well as running the popular award-winning Riverside Restaurant. This restaurant offers an imaginative British menu of contemporary and classic favorites or guests can also choose to dine in Sindhu by Atul Kochhar, serving traditional Indian cuisine cooked in a contemporary manner.
Many of the stylish 64 bedrooms and suites have lovely river views while some are within the pleasing sight and sound of cascading water over Marlow Weir. Decor is chic and contemporary whilst maintaining a high level of comfort; no two rooms are the same. There are six four-poster rooms, including the bridal suite which also has a private balcony overlooking the river for an extra dimension of glamour.
