Information about the venue
Upton Court in Ufton Nervet, is a charming wedding venue with a difference: one hundred percent of the profits from your wedding are gifted to a charity for disadvantaged and handicapped children. The stunning, 16th century, Grade I listed Manor House and timber-framed Tithe Barn are nestled within sixteen acres of beautiful countryside south west of Reading and easily accessed from the M4 motorway.
Registered as the Ufton Educational Trust, over 12,000 children are welcomed to Ufton Court every year. The work of the charity is supported by the profits raised from hosting romantic weddings held in the Tithe Barn at weekends. and mid-week during the school holidays. Through physical and mental activities held outside in woodland cabins and in the grounds, and through many residential visits, the children learn new life skills that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. The site also hosts creative projects including theatre and music courses.
