Temple Island and Poundon House
Temple Island is one of our most romantic, intimate and unique venues, situated a mile and a half downstream of the picturesque market town of Henley. The Temple itself is a delightful folly, built in 1771 and surrounded by rolling water meadows and wooded hills. You can only get to it by boat - can you imagine how lovely that approach would be for any bride - with magnificent views of the Oxfordshire countryside and the River Thames. The venue is steeped in history and during the heyday of the Victorian summer season the island and the Temple were used as a vantage point from which members of the Leander Club (famous rowing club) watched the Regatta.
A little further up the M40 towards Bicester is the very different but equally gorgeous Poundon House. Still run as a private home, it was built at the turn of the century by a follower of Lutyens in the palladian style, offers a fantastic setting and is an ideal backdrop for larger weddings. Whilst we could tell you more, they are actually holding a wedding fayre on Sunday 5 October from 11am to 3pm, and will host a variety of 30 wedding suppliers in the reception marquee. We've been to one of their wedding fayres before and they really do give you a great sense of what a wedding would be like here. What's more, parking is free and available on site, and all

Temple Island is situated a mile and half downstream of the picturesque market town of Henley-on-Thames and marks the start of the famous Royal Regatta course Built in 1771, the temple itself is a delightful folly and its interior is based on designs which had been discovered in Pompeii. The island is approached by boat (how cool would that be for your wedding party!) and up to 120 people can enjoy an al fresco party.
