Dec 19, 2023 | Weddings

Planning a beautiful Berkshire wedding? Berkshire, the Royal county of England, offers an amazing array of beautiful wedding locations. In this blog post, we will explore why Berkshire should be at the top of your list when planning your dream wedding.

Consider your must-have’s

Berkshire weddingWhen engaging the services of a wedding celebrant (like myself!) your Berkshire wedding can take place in any venue, whether it is licensed by the local council or not. From charming countryside estates and historic manor houses to picturesque gardens and riverside settings, there is something to suit every couple’s taste. With so many breathtaking settings available, Berkshire provides the perfect backdrop for a bespoke ceremony that reflects your individual style and preferences. Here are some of my very favourite Berkshire wedding venues:

1. Wasing Park

A quintessentially English setting full of sophistication and elegance, this lovingly restored traditional farm hamlet of Wasing is on the Berkshire / Hampshire borders and is exclusively yours.

Your wedding ceremony can take place in one of three breath-taking spaces and the venue is beautiful in any season all throughout the year.

With a Victorian Summerhouse and a glass walled Garden Room for ceremonies, luxurious boutique rooms, a Honeymoon Suite to die for, a bridal cottage the night before the big day, a groom’s room and an after party late night bar, simply nothing has been forgotten.

The Castle Barn is the ultimate space for wedding receptions, celebrate in style with fine dining or go for a more rustic and relaxed style from our Farmhouse Menu. The floating stretch tent over the terrace ensures ‘al fresco’ evening food all year round. The outdoor kitchen creates great theatre too for all diners on the terrace as the chefs cook over the fire pit and in the wood fired oven.

With a blank canvas of soft red brick walls filled with arrow slits, you can personalise your wedding and decorate the barn in your unique style.

When it comes to the party, the fabulous stage can host the most impressive bands and DJ’s. Whatever the choice, rest assured the acoustics are phenomenal and it will be the party of your lifetime.

2. The Olde Bell, Hurley

The Olde Bell is a gorgeous wedding venue in the picturesque village of Hurley near Maidenhead. A magical blend of traditional and contemporary style make this an unrivalled venue for your Berkshire wedding. No matter the season, the Olde Bell will not disappoint when it comes to luxurious accommodation, stunning views and many divine options for the wedding breakfast.  From the rustic charm of a barn wedding to the more classic tone of a ceremony held  within the exclusive Malthouse – brides will be given the freedom to create the wedding of their dreams to the backdrop of an unforgettable location.
