Come to the runnymede-on-thames and your special day will be a delight from start to finish.

We have two suites licensed for civil wedding ceremonies.
Beautiful function rooms in our civil wedding venue
The Grand Union and The Riverside Suites, are both licensed for civil ceremonies. Both beautifully refurbished contemporary suites perfect for the exchange of your vows. Both offer natural daylight and balconies or riverside terraces and gardens for drinks and canapé receptions. There are numerous beautiful spots for photos beside the river and in our orchard… anywhere you like.
The Grand Union Suite
Sweep up the driveway, walk up your red carpet and through your own exclusive entrance where your guests will be eagerly awaiting your arrival. The Grand Union Suite is licensed for up to 140 people for a civil ceremony and accommodates up to 250 for the wedding reception. There's plenty of space to relax and move around: a balcony where you can step outside with drinks, private lawn for a drinks reception, a private bar and lounge adjacent to the suite, private toilets and even the Mooring café… this is a wonderful space where children can play on the table football, pacman, playstation 3 and watch TV and movies.
The Riverside Suite
Enjoy stunning views directly over the Bell Weir Lock and River Thames as you gather together to celebrate your special day. The Riverside Suite is licensed for 70* people for a civil ceremony and accommodates around 80 people for a buffet or 100 for a sit down meal with dancing. For something completely different, you could host a drinks reception or a barbeque on the riverside terrace out in the fresh air with mature trees and riverboats all around, or enjoy drinks first in the lounge or the lock bar. There's also a bar within the suite itself, so you can keep the whole party together.
It's all terribly chic yet down to earth at the same time… there's a fantastic upbeat atmosphere everywhere at the runnymede-on-thames.
Our fabulous civil ceremonies and weddings venue on the River Thames in Egham, Surrey is just down the road from Royal Windsor and minutes from Heathrow.
