Perfection
We had the most amazing, wonderful wedding at The Riverside Glasshouse. It was perfect. The venue and location are stunningly beautiful, the food exquisite and the service we received second to none. It was absolutely fantastic! Steven and his team are the best and the whole day ran like clockwork. We didnt have to worry about anything and nothing was too much trouble. I really can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you so much again Steve!

Dear Kate & Jim What can I say, we miss you already, it was so nice to work with you both during the planning stages and the day was so much fun with The Singing Waiters & all of your guests who were just up for a great day, 80% of the weddings we do are guests who are local (or have a strong connection to Leamington) never have we have we had quite so many characters from the local area and my whole team loved looking after you all. Thank you so much Kind regards Steven & The Team

A wonderful wedding venue!
We had the best wedding day we could have wished for at the Riverside Glasshouse. From the moment we enquired, Steven was brilliant and we felt so looked after. Any questions we had were always answered quickly and we felt completely supported through the planning. The day ran like clockwork, everything went smoothly and all the staff on the day were brilliant - we couldn’t have asked for more. The food was amazing (we have guests still talking about it) and the venue gave us the relaxed atmosphere we were looking for with the added wow-factor of somewhere a bit different. We are so happy we chose the Riverside Glasshouse, thank you to all the staff!
Response from the venue

What a day!
This venue, and there staff are top tier. From our first visit to view the venue we knew we needed to get married there. Our 3 day of co-ordinators were out of this world! From having to get two brides down the aisle, to keeping our unconventional family and friends happy with our strange music tastes! The street food was phenomenal and I wish I had been a guest so I could have eaten more! This venue and the staff cannot get enough compliments and our family and friends couldn't stop gushing about you all afer the wedding! I think you guys were the highlight, not us, the brides! From start to finish our day was perfect. The security made us feel very important and the gents who did security were lovely! Our vendors had no issues accessing and conversing with the staff here. I'd like to give a special mention to the bar staff who worked on our wedding day, you guys were beyond fun and joyful, and I think you approved of our music choices as well! This is a top tier wedding venue and I wish I could gatekeep it and get married there all over again. We've definitely had the wedding of the decade thanks to the beautiful scenery and staff at this venue. Kerry and I honestly cannot thank you all enough, we had such a special day and we're glad all the staff that worked for our wedding worked that day. Thank you guys, you absolutely smashed it, lots of love to you all!

The most perfect day at the most perfect venue
Steven & his team at the glasshouse were amazing from the very first contact right through the day itself. We visited & emailed & called so many times up to the day just to check details and ask questions, every time either Steven or his very friendly team put us at ease and were totally in control of what was going on :) The day came round & honestly absolutely everything was perfect! The whole team make sure that the day runs to your plan & just like clockwork, so we just got to enjoy every second of it & enjoy spending time with our guests. Steven also made sure that we got to enjoy a few snatched moments together and took us away for quiet cocktails here & there to check in with each other. These were some of the best moments as you could just watch the magic going on. Then theres the food! Wow! So so delicious! All in all, a fantastic day that was framed and delivered by an awesome team in Steven and the glasshouse staff. Couldn’t recommend enough

Emma & Andy What can I say.... Wow, what a lovely review..... I will never forget seeing your photographer taking pictures of you both as the sun was setting after your pictures by the blue bridge, the perfect shot caught the reflection of the sun in Emma's eye's at just the right moment (Andy when someone looks at you like that, you know you have struck gold). How lucky were you both with the weather for this amazing December wedding day. I hope to see you both again very soon Steven xx

We are proud of way we have supported our clients through the Covid-19 pandemic, we have only had two cancellations because we stopped taking new bookings in 2020 so that we could preserve suitable dates for our existing VIP clients to postpone if they needed to. All of our couples were calm and it felt like we have been in this difficult time together, it is so nice to see them all getting married as we move through 2022. The biggest unique selling point for our business is our people, not a wedding goes buy without thank you letters and emails coming in from our couples and their families
