Our wedding was perfect in every way we could not have wished for a better day. Chandos House is such a beautiful location and such a romantic setting our guests were very impressed and fell in love with Chandos Houses' charm immediately.  Everything ran so smoothly and the staff were very professional.  Thank you so much for all your help Charlotte you have been amazing. We are very lucky to have been married at Chandos House on one of the warmest days of the year. Please also pass on our compliments to the chef too all our guests very much enjoyed the food and thought it was of very good quality they are still talking about the food even now. I think it was one of their highlights of the day! 

 

Love and best wishes,

Mr and Mrs Jessup 

 

We had a fantastic day. We could not fault anything with the professional service we received from the staff at Chandos on our wedding day and everything went very smoothly. The weather was fantastic and so most of the wedding party were on the terrace most of the time. Manuel and I are really pleased that we chose Chandos House for our wedding. Thank you, Joanna, for your help and professionalism throughout the journey.

Regards

Nicholas & Manuel

Thank you - we had the most fantastic wedding and a wonderful honeymoon. I can't thank yourself, Laura and Linda and the rest of the staff enough for making everything flow so smoothly on the day. Also, everyone has been commenting on the stunning venue and the great food (both during the sit-down meal and the buffet) - a separate round of thanks to the chef!

We really wanted to say thank you so much for the LOVELY WEDDING you conducted for us.  It was well organised and all the guests has an amazing time... We were thrilled with our Wedding Day and I cannot tell you how much our guests complimented the venue, food and atmosphere, so all in all - awesome!  So pleased we found you, and the venue certainly made for awesome pictures we will treasure forever.  I personally, cannot compliment you enough Charlotte.  You were very clear, listened and gave practical and helpful advice.  You were always contactable and it was brilliant to have the opportunity to go through things with you the morning I arrived...

18 January 2014

We have just got back to London after a few days away (although I'm still flying high on cloud nine)!

We have spoken non-stop for the past few days about what a wonderful help you were - to us and our families. Saturday was truly the best day of our lives - and it meant a huge amount to us that you were there and part of it all from the very beginning. From our very first visit to Chandos when we met, you made the venue feel so personal and impossible to imagine our wedding anywhere else.

Thank you again for everything you did for us, it will live in our memories forever.

All our love.

Lucinda & Piri

 

21 September 2013

Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special. The catering staff did a wonderful job and you took so much of the stress of planning out of the equation. 

A lot of our family and friends commented on the perfect tone of the wedding set by the English townhouse so quietly nestled a stone throw away from the hubbub of Oxford Circus. Some of our guests who spent the night intend to come back to stay in the future.

They loved the flowers, the discrete black door, food, children's menu, courtyard, staircase. In short, they loved it all and appreciated the added value of the superb service. To use a book analogy, the content of the book lived up to and exceeded the promise of the cover.

Please also send our thanks to Rafael and all those we do not know by name. 

Mogbolahan and Daniela

 

15 September 2013

We want to thank the entire team at Chandos House for making our day so special.   Thank you for your attention to details and making the day run as smoothly as possible.

All our guests had a wonderful time and complemented us on the beautiful venue and setting.

Thank you,

Kindest Regards,

Fong & Long

 

07 September 2013

From start to finish the staff at Chandos House alleviated much of the organisational stress associated with such an event - nothing was too much trouble and the whole day went very smoothly. All of our guests commented on the beautiful surroundings, the top quality food and the friendly staff. Thank you Chandos House for making our very special day even more memorable.

Mike & Billy

 

31 August 2013

Jo thank you so much for the work you did both before, and on, the day - we both had such a great time and we knew we were in good hands and could let you get on with everything while we spent time with our guests.

Please also pass my thanks on to Raf who did a brilliant job and was a lovely presence to have front of house on the day - he certainly did a good job with my auntie Barbara chivvying her along when she didn't want to go straight up to the meal ha ha!

We've had really good feedback from the day so again thank you.

Alex & Craig

 

20 July 2013

I just thought I'd send you a line to thanks you so much for doing such a great job on Saturday 20th. Jakob and I had a really magical day- everything went like clockwork- the food was excellent, service great and all the guests had a fabulous time- I could not shift anyone from the courtyard to the dancefloor so in the end I just joined them. 

Jakob and I really appreciate all the work you put in to make our wedding run so smoothly- it could not have been better!

Susie & Jakob

 

29 June 2013

Everything went wonderfully smoothly on Saturday. Thanks again to you and everyone who helped throughout the day and evening. The food was delicious and the staff friendly and efficient.  The rooms looked stunning as always and even the weather made a huge effort and surprised us with glorious sunshine.

29 October 2012

We had an absolutely fantastic day, and looking back we can't think of anything that could have been better.  We would especially like to thank you and everyone else at Chandos House for everything you have done.  We have had a huge number of people both on the night and since who have told us how fantastic the venue was and how high the quality of service was throughout the whole day.  As well as thanking yourself, we'd like it if you were able to pass on a particular thanks to the Master of Ceremonies as he was excellent.  

We are heading off for a relaxing couple of weeks in SE Asia now. Once again, thanks for everything over the last year or so that led up to Saturday, we really couldn't be more thrilled with how our day went. 

Thanks Sally & Andy

 

29 September 2012

We really can't thank you, Nicholas and Francis enough for all that you had done to make our day so very special. All your hard work in organising the event made it a smooth running, perfect day! 

All the staff were amazing, and we were so very impressed with the quality of all the work carried out for us, from the food, to the decor. 

Thank you again Keeley, and it was absolutely our pleasure to have had contact with you over these past few months. 

Lucy and Clay Truefitt

 

29 June 2012

I wanted to write to thank you for everything you did to make our wedding day absolutely perfect. So many of our guests commented on what a fantastic venue Chandos House is, and the food & service were fabulous.

Lots of people said that we must have spent so much time organising everything, but you did it all! Everything ran so smoothly and we were just able to enjoy ourselves and have a wonderful time.

Huge thanks to you & Rafael and everyone on the night (and the next morning) who worked so hard and were so helpful & accommodating. John and I are very grateful.

Jodi (Bride)

 

23 June 2012

We felt we must write to thank you, Rafael and the entire team for the wonderful service we received during Alistair and Sara's wedding day.

The quality of the food was first class and the front of house team were attentive with out being intrusive, friendly without being over familiar and certainly very caring around our guests - all in all the perfect balance to suit the occasion. I have personally been in the hospitality business all my career and fully understand these things don't just happen, without good staff training and faultless planning. Your staff were a credit to the management team.

As joint hosts, we were approached by many of the guests, some of whom we had known for years and some of whom we were meeting for the first time and it was really pleasing to hear that everyone thought it was 'the best wedding they'd ever attended!' High praise indeed but fully deserved.

Bob and Maggie (Parents of the groom)

 

31 March 2012

... a massive thanks to you and the rest of the team for all your work. We had such an amazing day and have had so many compliments for our guests about the quality of the food, the loveliness of the venue, the way the wedding day flowed etc etc. I think the thing that has come up the most is that so many people have said it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever been to. I am sure a large part of that is down to Chandos House itself. It is a real gem of a venue and you and the team were fantastic to deal with every step of the way. I really count my blessings that Rich and I choose Chandos House as our wedding venue. We truly had an amazing day. 

 Also Keeley a special thanks to you for being so lovely to work with, for your practical advice and your friendly, calm, professional manner ...

Julia & Rich

 

10 March 2012

I just had to put into writing my absolutely thanks for such a wonderful day you all helped to create last Saturday March 10th for my daughter Natasha on her marriage to Stephen.

I can honestly say that nothing seemed too much trouble, the care and attention not just from certain members of the staff but ALL members of staff. Everything was done quietly, efficiently and with the upmost attention to detail. I can't throw enough superlatives your way.

Natasha was extremely anxious about her 'big' day and I can honestly say once the wedding started she glowed and smiled throughout the whole day. Master of Ceremonies guided us with care and attention and good humour, the food both from the canapes, wedding breakfast to the buffet was superb.

You all looked after us from start to finish; you helped give Natasha & Stephen a day to remember alongside all of their guests.

You set the gold standard, I can highly recommend Chandos House and Team, beautiful location and wonderful interiors, you live up to all expectations and beyond. Thank you.

Mrs P A Tansey (Mother of the Bride)

 

17 September 2011

Nigel and I would like to thank you all for an absolutely fabulous time at Chandos House for our Civil Partnership.
The day ran so smoothly and seemed effortless but we do appreciate the tremendous amount of work that goes into making an event go so well.
All the staff were so professional and efficient but friendly too, a great combination and asset for the House.

All our guests enjoyed the food praising the quality and presentation and some of them are quite hard to please! The evening tapas - buffet was a great success with many guests saying how unusual and interesting it was not to be confronted with standard "wedding fare". Please pass on our appreciation to the Chefs and kitchen staff for their hard work.

Our evening entertainment was so much fun and we really appreciate the help we had to keep the whole thing a secret from our guests. The reveal of the "party room" was an inspired bit of quick thinking by Nicholas and our guests were suitably surprised and thrilled.

The star of the day was definitely Chandos House itself.
Suitably grand for the Ceremony and a great place for a party.
It is a fantastic venue made all the better by the people who work there.

We had such a great day, thank you to everyone who made it possible.

Regards,
Peter & Nigel

 

14 July 2011

We just want to thank you Joanna, Rafael and all the staff @ CH for the amazing day we had.
Everything looked amazing, beautiful, the service was top class, the Chinese Suite is just the most beautiful and romantic place ever, where a bride and a groom should spend their first night as married couple.
Let us tell you, everything went so smoothly, close to perfection.

Many guests said it has been the best wedding they ever attended in terms of emotions, location, service and fun. We believe it.

Thank you so much!

Love
Alessandro & Emanuela

 

09 July 2011

The guests have been not been able to stop complementing the food especially the Granite which could only have been a Chef's nightmare to serve people roaming freely on a warm summers evening throughout every corner of the house. We realize that this was perhaps a more unusual service format for you, but it was delivered flawlessly, each dish perfectly prepared and served - thank you!
 
The team as a whole were friendly, efficient, really well trained, and not a Single guest had a poor experience. Nicholas, your little touches, initiative and thoughtfulness was noticed and really helped smooth over the edges of my plan, down to the dry ice. Francis, you were an unexpected delight, your suggestions were spot on, your cajoling of the guests to where they needed to be, filled with humour and it was so easy to relax into enjoying the evening knowing that you were all there genuinely interested in ensuring that the guests had a wonderful evening. Thank you.

The rooms were lovely, flowers in the garden were blooming beautifully - the whole house has the feel that someone cares, a rarity in a city like London, where at best you are likely to get professional excellence.

Joanna, we realize that you had to step into our rather ambitious plans at a later stage, but you pulled it off perfectly, thank you for calmly following the plan and just seeing it through.

Our best wishes for each of you and Chandos House, you deserve all the best going forward.

 

18 June 2011

Gareth and I had an absolutely fantastic time - everything was perfect and the staff were amazing!!
Thank you so much for all your help, you were brilliant!
Everyone who stayed over is going to recommend Chandos House, and we hope to see you next year for our anniversary!

Thanks once again for all your help

Dearest Lovely People at Chandos house!

Would just like to send you a GREAT BIG THANK YOU for being so extremely kind and lovely to us and to our family at our wedding weekend! They have not stopped talking about how nice you all were and how they LOVED their stay at Chandos house. Off course they really enjoyed their beautiful rooms, but the main comments has been that everyone they met where so friendly, kind, helpful and really made them feel so welcome and at home.
The only really stressful thing about our wedding was to "organise" the family. From the very start you were so extremely understanding and helpful!

We cannot thank you enough, you played a massive part in making our wedding so fantastic!

THANK YOU!

Cecilia & Stephen

 

30 September 2011

As always, the holiday is over way to quickly and we're back at work today. Any way, we wanted to tell you how happy we were with everything on our wedding day. Everything went exactly as we had hoped it would. The rooms and terrace looked great, the food was great, everything was organised brilliantly from start to finish and all the staff were extremely helpful. So a massive thanks to you and everyone for all your hard work!

Mark and Katy.

 

29 August 2010

Just a quick note to say a huge thank you - to you specifically - and all your staff for the superb job they did yesterday. It was everything we had wished for. Several guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to and we are convinced that was because of the beautiful venue, attentive staff, brilliant food and overall top quality of the whole experience.

Thank you.
Kirsty and Nick

How wonderful to hear from you!

We have just got back to Israel - I am so sorry for not writing sooner!

Amy, we cannot thank you enough for the absolutely wonderful day we had.

The entire day flowed superbly - all thanks to you and the wonderful staff.

You did an absolutely fabulous day setting things up beforehand and Rafael did a great job on the day. All the staff were so nice and so friendly and helpful that even the guests commented on it. They were really superb.

The house looked beautiful and I loved the fairy lights in the garden. Please thank Naomi and the girls for me, they did such a beautiful job and the dining room was exquisite.

Special compliments to the chef - many people came up to tell me it was the first time they had really great food at a wedding. The tarte tatin was divine!The pimms was delicious - as was everything else.

All in all a superb day and all thanks to you and the staff. I have been to many events but none of them run so well as this one and in such a smooth and efficient manner.

Please forward my thanks to all involved.

I will of course send you the photos as soon as I have them.

 

24 July 2010

Just wanted to thank you and your team for making Saturday evening such a great success. The rooms looked beautiful and everything ran like clockwork and Rafael's team were very professional yet friendly and helpful. I have had lots of positive comments about the venue and the team. Please pass on my comments and thanks to them.

 

26 June 2010

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff so much for enabling us to have the most wonderful day. Everything was just perfect and your staff were fantastic. We really cannot express how impressed we were. You were right when you told us to just enjoy the day and let you take care of everything. We did!!

Hoping one day in the future we can find a suitable excuse to have another party at your brilliant venue

 

12 June 2010

We had a fabulous day and would like to thank you and all your staff for making it such a perfect day. We were very impressed by the helpfulness of your staff and we know all of our guests had a great time.

We would highly recommend your venue, both for excellent service on the day and during the weekend, for our guests that stayed overnight at Chandos House.

The day was very special for Natalie and David and they have both said they would like to repeat the day!!!!!

A special thanks to you, Amy, your extra help was greatly appreciated.

 

12 June 2010

Ross and I returned from a relaxing visit to Paris a few days ago and wanted to follow up with you to thank you and the rest of the team at Chandos House for making our wedding such a wonderful event. The rooms were all set up beautifully, the food was fantastic (burgers, apparently were to die for J), and the service was impeccable. All the little details you thought off (Russian barmen, wedding cake in our suite etc) were just excellent touches to make our day even better. We were even very pleasantly surprised by the family breakfast and how elegantly set up and delivered it was on Sunday morning. We appreciate all the effort that you and your team put into making our wedding weekend so special for us, and for your quick adjustments and help during the excitement prior to the ceremony. Our wedding was all we hoped for and more, and we will definitely recommend Chandos House to friends and family in future.

Best regards and wishes,
Jelena and Ross

23 May 2010

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all your superb efforts on our big day - everything was perfect and the House looked its best as did the weather. We had a wonderful time and judging by the number of thank you notes we have had from our guests everyone else did too. The staff were great and we loved the Antipodean registrar.

I don't have any photos from Alex as yet as I know he was finishing off a big wedding job from a couple of weeks before and as it is their gift to us I can't really chase him too hard. I will email you some as soon as I get them.
Best Wishes Serena Ede

 

22 May 2010

I hope you are well and have enjoyed the few weeks of sun. I just wanted to take the opportunity to provide you (and the team) with some feedback following our wedding on May 22, 2010.

Firstly, I wanted to say thank you all for such a great day. Graham and I had a such a wonderful time, our friends and family have also said what a great time they had. You worked so hard on the day and did so much - you really did afford me and my sister time to relax and not worry - thank you.

Graham and I were so impressed with the staff, led by you and Rafael. The staff team were courteous, helpful and attentive. They also worked so very hard. I only wish that I could remember their names so I could tell you exactly who the stars were, that said, Raf was outstanding - everyone has commented on him.

The food was excellent. The lamb was perfect and the desert was wonderful - although I had something different, many people have said that it was great. My favourite was the halibut. The most telling bit of praise is that many people have commented that the meal was the best wedding breakfast they have eaten. In spite of my love of cheese (and port) I was too busy dancing to eat any :-( but I am told it was perfect. Please pass on my comments to Chef.

The building is absolutely beautiful, as you know. It has made the photographs even better! The rooms were great and the hotel staff great also. The building was clean, well appointed and had everything we all needed. I met the hotel manager on the Friday. He was such a helpful and friendly man; yet again I forget his name, but please pass on my thanks and comments to him and the team.

I felt it important to let you know how thrilled we all were with the day. I cannot praise you all enough. Please do share this e-mail with the team.

If you would like me to be the RSM/Chandos House unofficial spokesperson, do let me know!!

With very best wishes,
Emily Stokes

PS I have some beautiful photo's of the building, tables and garden, if you would like a copy mailed over x

 

01 May 2010

Simon and I just wanted to send you a quick note to say a BIG thank you for all your help with the wedding, it was all perfect and we loved every minute.

Thank you for doing a fantastic job of organising it and for making it so easy for us, as you thought of everything!

We are on honeymoon now in Africa, but will be in touch when we get back to say a proper thank you.

Love Lucy and Simon x

 

24 April 2010

Just to say a huge thank you to you, Rafael and all the team at Chandos for helping to make our day so special. We had a truly amazing day, and it was great to have so much support from the team. All of the family and guests commented on how fantastic the venue was and how friendly and helpful the staff were. It was great to feel so looked after, and the attention to detail in the service and presentation was really appreciated.

I've sent a link to the photos below. If there are any that you would like to use please just let us know, and we'd be happy to oblige.

Best Wishes Katherine and John
