Comments from Paul Martin:
The MacDonalds Compleat Angler is a four star luxury hotel in an idyllic location on the banks of the river Thames. Dating from 1640 the Compleat Angler is named after the famous book by Isaak Walton; the hotel has 64 individual bedrooms – all named after fishing flys. With two renowned restaurants and spectacular views of Marlow weir and the river, the hotel is the perfect place for the wedding of your dreams. It is also licensed for civil weddings.

From a wedding photography perspective, the Compleat Angler has everything to offer. The superb views across the river and the beautifully maintained lawns, littered with numerous gardens chairs and tables provides a perfect backdrop. I was able to record some lovely informal-journalistic style photographs of bride and groom mingling with their guests, sipping champagne. I also recorded some very creative photographs of bride and groom both inside and outside. The sound of river water cascading over the weir nearby creates a very calming aspect, whilst dining in the conseravtory.

The hotel offers a comprehensive for your wedding day:

* Personal wedding-co-ordinator to assist you and advise you
* A “wedding tasting” of your chosen menu

* Use of the Edwardian Bridal Carriage (April – October)
* Complete wedding day package including Reception Drinks, 3 Course Menu, Personalised Table Plan, Menu Cards and Place Names, Red or White Wine, Still & Sparkling Water, Champagne for Toasts, Complimentary Overnight Accommodation in a Bridal Feature Room with Champagne Breakfast if required.
* Toastmaster on hand to make your day run smoothly.
For a really unique aspect to your wedding day, it is possible to make arrangements for the bride to arrive in style, by boat

Needless to say, I recommend the Compleat Angler as a fantastic wedding venue and for memorable wedding photography. For further information, you may contact the hotel via email:
