    I just had my wedding in August of 2017 at Berkeley Church. I will say that this is a beautiful venue, but the staff/owners are lucky it’s so charming.

    From our first visit with Tom who barely showed us the full venue during the tour (there were areas that later our caterer showed us that Tom hadn’t taken us through) all the way to our venue coordinator Kathy (also hard to get a hold of), losing a vendor’s easel that we needed to return, this was overall a dysfunctional place to have an event or wedding.

    First of all, this venue does state that it has an exclusive caterer that must be used. They told us they were willing to allow us to bring in our own caterer but for a Landmark Fee. We said no problem. It was very tough to coordinate with Tom as he seemed to be “out of the office” quite often and we seemed to be nickel and dimed throughout the entire process (I’m sure it’s because we weren’t using their caterer even though we still paid an arm and a leg for the venue and extra fee).

    Fast forward to the day of the wedding, their staff had agreed to help set up tables on 1 floor while the caterer would look after the other level. Caterer showed up to find that nothing had been done. The worst part about this venue? COCKROACHES. My caterer later told me that during the wedding they witnessed a cockroach fall out of a cupboard in the kitchen (luckily our food was cooked offsite and stored in a separate area). To top it all off, a Berkeley staff member told my caterer to not leave purses or valuables lying around close to the back door as sometimes hookers and homeless people will wander in and steal wallets. How are you still operational?!?! A staff member also scribbled out a drink menu option on one of our signs that we were meant to keep as a memento of the night from our calligrapher. It’s now ruined and unusable.

    To top it all off, our venue coordinator lost an easel that we need to return to our calligrapher. It was supposedly on her desk. It sounds like even the staff steal from each other.

    Whatever you do DO NOT BOOK HERE. Totally unprofessional and an awful experience.

    My brother got married here a few months ago. Beautiful space, very unique. Staff were friendly but they took too long to start serving at cocktail hour. Guests were there for almost 2 hours before food came out. They should also have security at the front door as soon as the doors are unlocked. Before the bridal party showed up there were people off the streets walking in, going upstairs and trying to take some of the alcohol laying around upstairs. If we hadn't been there setting up centrepieces and decor who knows what would have been taken... like the box filled with envelopes stuffed with cash.
