This is just a quick message from lauren and I to express our thanks for the work you and your team put in to what was a wonderful day for us and our guests: indeed, we have had a number of guests state, and I think honestly, that it was the best organised and slickest wedding they have attended, and that is credit to you and your team. 

In particular, the food and service was fantastic, as was your understanding of where and when people needed to be in the correct position ect - we couldn't have wished for anything else. 

You have a fantastic and unique venue but, as you know, this means little if the people in it do not work with the correct attitude and focus: thank you again

We wanted to say a huge thank you for making our day perfect. We loved every moment of it, thank you so much for holding off the service while the rain passed and for the Prosecco on the boat! The day exceeded all of our hopes and much of this is down to you and your team. 

The feedback from our friends and family has been overwhelming. Everybody loved the venue, the food, the staff, the rooms and lodges, even the venue chairs have been mentioned a few times! I would like to say we would love to do it all again, but it was so perfect i dont think it could be redone!

Thank you again, we look forward to visiting again in the future.

Many, many thanks for the professional sensitive and caring mannor in which you co-ordinated Gina and Michael's wedding. We greatly admire and appreciate the effort you gave to ensure all went so smoothly. We can not fault anything. Your attention to detail and calm manner was a triumph. Please extend our thanks and gratitude to your staff also. The Helmsman of Gentleman Jim was brilliant, the perfect arrival for the Bridal party. Throughout the day, we saw your Belinda-keeping a watchful eye of procedures and also Michael, leaving nothing to chance. The day was perfect! Bright sunshine streamed across the Broad, all the guests were stunned by the beauty and quality of The Boathouse and Lodges.

The Chefs and table staff were attentive and friendly. Chef's meals were outstanding! Serval guests commented that he/she produced the best wedding breakfast they had ever tasted. It was so delicious, served hot (no mean feet far 100 guests to be served simultaneously). The Evening buffet too was perfect.

We were so thrilled and proud with the whole day-it was filled woth laughter, poignancy, love and friendship, a thoroughly wonderful wedding day.

We will have no hesitation on recommending your beautiful and outstanding venue to other. You should feel extremely proud of the way you have created the prefect wedding venue.

With our greatful thanks.

A beautiful wedding venue.....we attended a wedding here at this revamped venue. The whole event was delightful with champagne and canapes on arrival. The bride arrived by boat from The Waterside on Gentleman Jim. Guests were seated outside and the couple married under pretty gazebo. The wedding breakfast was superb with round tables seating eight and beautiful flowers. We had antipasti for starters,a nod to the Italian groom, then seabass or lamb. Was so impressed with the attentive service and the fact they managed to serve approx 100 people simultaneously. Dedsert was panacotta with strawberry coulis, bitter chocolate tart (to die for) or sticky toffee pudding. Tables were cleared efficiently and dancing began. Later in evening excellent barbeque was served. Hats off to the staff and chef. Well done!
Paula, Caister-on-Sea

Just to say a big thank you in appreciation for a truly memorable day. We all had a wonderful time. The feedback has been very positive from our guests. The pictures are helping us to recall all the lovely moments experienced. Wishing you well with your future events. 
John & Beverly

The Boathouse is located on a lovely peaceful river. We attended a friend's wedding reception here in June and it was the perfect setting. There a a few rowing boats which guests were allowed to take out which was a nice touch. The dance floor was nice and big and the BBQ was delicious. Drinks weren't overpriced, and the toilets were very clean. Excellent wedding venue! :)
Lauren, Milton Keynes

I attended a friend's wedding here, and the whole day was fantastic. The venue has recently been refurbished, and they have done a fantastic job. The food was fabulous - hot plates for 150 guests is a tough job, well presented and yummy! The service team were awesome, and very attentive to our needs. 10/10 for the wedding and The Boathouse - can't wait to visit again soon.
Angelina, Norwich
