We have just returned from our wedding at the Shangri-La at the Shard and wanted to say publicly a huge thanks to all the staff there who made our day so amazing. The lengths the hotel went to look after us and over 100 of our guests - making all of them feel so special - were astonishing and surpassed all of our expectations. A special thanks to Clare who ran our event, oversaw all the fantastic staff and handled millions of requests, questions, queries and concerns over the last year. Without her our event wouldn't have worked half as well and her attention to detail and dedication went above and beyond. The hotel's executive chef Gareth did the most amazing job too and our guests were so happy with the food, as the quality wasn't at all comprised by the number of people he catered for simultaneously. He even remembered the football team I supported from a previous meeting and left special macaroons in our suite after with the right colours on them! The banqueting manager Adam was also fantastic both before the event and on the night. He didn't just make everything run smoothly with the food and drink but also ended up as our master of ceremonies! I can't recommend this hotel enough, not just the event spaces we used or the quality of the staff but also the facilities and luxurious rooms and furnishings themselves. We used and saw various rooms and suites during our stay, all of them absolute high end luxury from stand alone deep bath tubs to proper black out blinds which actually worked (so many others don't!), and from the comfiest beds to choices of silk or cotton robes. The standard of catering was also amazing but the 52nd floor heated pool overlooking London was especially incredible and a massive perk for anyone staying in the hotel to get to use. Thank you so much to everyone who made our wedding so special. We will be back so often and are so in love with the hotel.

I got married here two years ago, my family and I stayed here for 3 nights and every part of it was perfect. They were able to accommodate every aspect of our very special day. We had an intimate wedding in the evening. Nothing was too much trouble and every member of staff I met was brilliant. You get what you pay for and it was worth every penny. The view from every room in this hotel is just breath taking. We had a wedding video made and I still watch it once a week, the setting was just perfect. I must mention how safe I felt here. Every time we entered the hotel our bags were checked and the internal lifts could only be operated by guests. We had our two young children with us and I felt at ease knowing security was a priority. We are staying here next week for our two year anniversary and I couldn't be more excited to return. P.S. If you stay here make sure you go for a swim!
