Temple Island - Customer Feedback

Some feedback from our customers.

All of our guests were absolutely bowled over by the venue and everything was just perfect. Many thanks for all the work you did in organising the accessibility for all the contractors and car parking.  Your card was a lovely thought and so unexpected, it is on display to remind us all of such a fantastic day, everything Nicki and Jason had dreamed of.

The venue was magical, particularly with the unexpectedly wonderful weather.  Thank you very much indeed for your part in making our Ruby Wedding Anniversary celebration a wonderful and memorable event.

Guy & Sarah Greenhous - wedding anniversary

We had a fabulous day but having our reception on Temple Island really made the wedding.  The day went without any hitches and the Island looked particularly stunning in the glorious sunshine last Saturday.  Our families and guests were amazed by the location and everybody we have spoken to so far have voted the wedding as the best wedding they have ever been to.

Martin & Hayley

Just a brief note to restate how much we enjoyed our day on Temple Island for my daughters wedding.  The location is superb and the facilities all that we could have asked for.

Nigel Dunnett - wedding reception

When we first saw Temple Island on a cold and grey winter's morning many months before our wedding, we were completely charmed.   From the elegance of the temple building's interior decor, to the dramatic mist that rises from the river at dusk, Temple Island is a unique and magical setting for a reception. Katrina at HRR was extremely helpful throughout our preparations and the fact that she had such well-established relations with our suppliers meant that we could rest assured that everything would run extremely smoothly.

We had a wonderful time at Temple Island on Saturday, thanks to Elegant Cuisine, Meridian Marquees, Hobbs, Chas Newens Marine and, of course, Henley Royal Regatta. Thanks to you all, we can't imagine a nicer idea than to "do it all again". I know that our guests would entirely agree! Perhaps we shall all be so lucky.

Temple Island is a truly magical and stunning place.  I could not dream up a more beautiful location for a wedding.  John and I would whole heartedly recommend this venue to anyone wishing to have a unique wedding or special event.  My gratitude to you Katrina at HRR for all your help. You were friendly and professional throughout and your service was exemplary.  I have already thanked Elegant Cuisine and Meridian Marquees whose service was world class.  Temple Island will forever reduce me to happy tears. John and I feel blessed to have had the most wonderful day of our lives there.

The island was just amazing and seemed rather magical on the day.  It really was perfect and we can only thank you for allowing us to use it.  Hopefully in the future we will be able to re-visit it.

What a wonderful place.  It was magical, how lovely that the general public are allowed to rent the island.

We just wanted to thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day more magical than we could ever have imagined.  It truly could not have gone better and as a venue, Temple Island was simply stunning.  We would happily recommend Temple Island and HRR to our friends and family for any event that they may be planning.  You were approachable throughout the entire process and took away a lot of the stresses that we might otherwise have had.  In addition we were very impressed with the suppliers we used.

Daniel & Victoria Welinder - wedding reception

We had a fine, dry evening, delicious feed, magical ambiance and everyone felt very privileged to be there.  It was certainly an extremely special evening for us all, and one which will linger in our memories for ever.

Annie and Dave Moore - birthday party

"My daughter organised a surprise party on Temple Island for my birthday on the 11th July. It was the most magical occasion... Unforgettable, unique and the best surprise ever!
I wanted to thank you and your company for all your help in organising the most wonderful evening. Every aspect of the night was perfect. The Island is so picturesque and the folly is without doubt one of the most amazing venues that I have ever seen. The catering and the staff were excellent. Friendly and professional. The food was perfect. It was all seamless and truly one of the best nights of my 66 years!

Bonnie Ward

I would like to say a big thank you for all your efforts leading up to our wedding at Temple Island.  All our family had a fabulous time and were so impressed by the venue.

Farrah and Vikram Gillani - wedding reception

I want to write to thank you for all of your help, support and advice with organising the recent party on Temple Island.  Temple Island was simply the perfect and most delightful setting for the party and especially meaningful to the many rowers in attendance.  In addition to this both Meridian Marquees and Elegant Cuisine were first class suppliers.  In short, the party was truly amazing and will be long remembered by all - Temple Island is not only unique but also a very special venue.
