Thank you so much for all you did to make our wedding celebrations on the river go so smoothly - it really was a fabulous day and we were so lucky with the weather as it turned into a beautiful sunny evening.
The boat looked incredible after Zoe and her crack team of bunting putter-uppers did their thing, and Hari’s pompoms were the icing on the cake. The band were brilliant and we certainly got our money’s worth out of Bespoke Productions as they went the extra mile to make sure everyone was happy with the setup. Asta and her team did a brilliant job and everyone commented on how delicious the food was.
It really was a day to remember for everyone there. We had a total ball, so thank you for all your help in making it happen - you were brilliant and we really appreciated all your help with our various requests. Thank you again for being so helpful and lovely throughout and compliments to all involved. We had the best party ever!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you; there are not enough words to say thank you! We and our guests had a phenomenal time during our wedding celebration on the Elizabethan. Very well done to you all, especially the captain, Tofeeq the chef and the entire catering team who contributed to the very beautiful memory of our wedding on the steamship. Thank you.

From the first time we called to make an enquiry up to the event itself, everyone we encountered at TLC provided a friendly and efficient service. Claudia, who organised our event, was very flexible and happy to spend time talking us through options and ideas. She was also patient when we weren't sure what we wanted! On the day everyone working aboard the Erasmus was fantastic and the food was wonderful. We had a fantastic day and would not hesitate to recommend TLC to others.

I hired the MV Elizabethan for my wedding reception - a perfect venue with an outstanding crew! The boat was exactly what we wanted for a relaxed event and the DJ (arranged by TLC) had everyone dancing all night with the roof open. The food was great, staff (in planning and delivery) all excellent - it was an amazing way to see London and a perfect party! Our wedding has been cited as the best ever and a few of our guests enquired about hiring the boat for their own upcoming events.
The boat was beautiful and immaculately prepared. The staff were professional, courteous and attentive. The food was very well received by all the guests and the planning team ensured all our requests were dealt with. We had a wedding day to remember for the rest of our lives!

We had our wedding reception aboard the Elizabethan - an amazing afternoon and evening. Guests were very impressed, with many announcing that it was the best wedding they had been to!
Thank you for all of your help in arranging the boat for our wedding day. We had a really wonderful day and the trip down the Thames was a very special part of it. The boat looked really smart and all of the staff on board were excellent. Impeccable service all round.
We had a fantastic wedding ceremony on board the M.V. Edwardian. The food was amazing and all the staff were so friendly and helpful. Everything was really well organised. I would absolutely recommend TLC for future events. Thank you!
We had our big day on the Elizabethan on 30 July 2016 - and I should say everything was perfect. The staff were professional and very nice indeed, and the food was delicious. Almost all of our guests were saying what a great venue and what a great idea it was! If you are looking for a different, but very enjoyable, experience, I totally recommend this option!
Everything from the initial planning to the actual day on M.V. Erasmus was amazing. Our wedding reception was a surprise for many and the cruise certainly made the day very different to standard weddings. All 90 guests have and keep telling us how magical the Thames trip was, so a big thank you from us to TLC and all the staff.
I cannot recommend Thames Luxury Charters enough. They ensured that we and the guests for our wedding had an absolutely perfect day. Having just had a first viewing of our professional wedding photos, I am reminded how stunning the boat was inside and out, how attentive and polite the staff were, fabulous food, drink and entertainment; all sorted out by their highly professional staff. As an idea for an event, it may not be everyone's first choice, but the experience of being on board and the great views you get along the Thames make for a truly memorable occasion.
We booked the Elizabethan for a three-hour return trip from Putney to beyond Tower Bridge after our daughter's wedding ceremony. The food was exceptional and everyone said how wonderful the whole experience had been. I would thoroughly recommend.
We hired the Edwardian for a three-hour tour of the Thames ahead of our wedding to welcome many out of town guests to London. The booking staff were incredible in helping to plan our day, and the Events Management Team on the boat ensured that everything ran smoothly. Our guests could not stop complimenting us on the delightfulness of the boat cruise and the tastings of the catering. We would highly recommend TLC to anyone looking to host a unique and enjoyable event.
