Although Thames Club does not host too many weddings, it really is a perfect place for them. They do in-house catering and the old building and ambiance are old-world elegance to a T. The food was delicious.
My husband became a member back in January for a small fee. Members have free rental use of the building and its rooms. So we had the entire building--all three finished floors--at our disposal! We had everything from a brightly lit air conditioned bridal suite for getting ready in the morning, to a photo booth room (old fire place and couch), to the library, decorated with our own old books and family portraits, to 3 bars open for our guests' patronage, to the larger main rooms for serving the food stations, to duck pin bowling downstairs and an antique pool table in full use in the pub area. (This was not a standard wedding with a big open ballroom and a DJ, but it was perfect for us). For a seated dinner and a more standard wedding reception, Thames Club could probably only fit about 100, but for a wedding more in our style with all 3 floors open, they can easily fit more than 200.
With the membership fee, this wedding still cost less than had we had the wedding at any other nearby location, from Crocker House Ballroom, to the Garde, to the CGA Officer's Club--seriously it was the best deal--and beautiful... and there are lots of churches within walking distance--it was so convenient!
