Oct 3, 2021 | Weddings

Berkshire wedding venues are diverse and there is something to suit every style, taste and budget. From grand historical manor houses to quirky urban bars, there’s a Berkshire wedding venue for everyone. As an independent celebrant I officiate weddings, naming ceremonies and renewal of vows ceremonies at a wide variety of venues all over Berkshire – here is a small selection of my favourite Berkshire wedding venues.

Berkshire wedding venue #1: The Old Rectory at Padworth

If you’re looking at Berkshire wedding venues with the personal touch, look no further. Nestled in the heart of the Berkshire countryside, this elegant country house dates back to the 1600’s. Gorgeous both inside and out, you will be bowled over by the charm and the warmth of the excellent service provided by Christina and her amazing team. You can prepare for your big day in the Courtyard Lodge with complimentary tea and coffee, before your wedding ceremony which can take place in the Gala Hall or outside in the manicured gardens.

Berkshire wedding venue #3: Easthampstead Park, Wokingham

Easthampstead Park is a Victorian mansion on the edge of Wokingham and Bracknell in the English county of Berkshire. The house is a Grade II listed building “of historic and architectural interest, in Jacobean style”.  Set in 80 acres of grounds, with plenty of character and charm, it’s a beautiful venue for any occasion, but particularly comes alive on a Wedding Day and one of the very best Berkshire wedding venues.

Your guests will then move into the elegant Downshire Ballroom where your Wedding Breakfast and the speeches will take place. After tea and coffee, it’s time to cut your cake and have your first dance, after which you can let your hair down and dance the night away.

Your Honeymoon Suite – with South Facing views overlooking the gardens – is the perfect escape to relax and reflect on your wonderful day. Your guests can also enjoy a night in one of their Mansion House Bedrooms.
