Information about the venue
Congratulations – you’re in love and looking for the perfect wedding venue to exchange your vows and say “I do”. If you live anywhere near the rural village of Aldermaston in Berkshire, then Wasing Park is a truly romantic barn venue for your wedding and a wonderful place to share your Special Day with friends and family. Easily accessible from the M3 and M4 motorways, the luxury venue is set within stunning 18th Century parkland, close to Reading, Newbury and Basingstoke, and also offers fabulous overnight accommodation for you and your guests – including the Honeymoon Suite (a former hay loft) boasting, arguably, the biggest bed in Berkshire!
When it comes to choosing where to have for your wedding, Wasing Park has a number of options – all of which provide a variety of amazing backdrops for your memorable photographs. Take, for example, the Victorian Summerhouse nestled in the Terrace Garden and traditionally built with a white wooden frame, and wooden seating inside. The summerhouse has hand-painted murals depicting flowers, blossoming cherry trees, birds and butterflies. Overlooking neatly manicured lawns, it offers beautiful views of the grounds and its Grade II listed buildings. Ideal for ceremonies held in the spring and summer. Then there’s the impressive Castle Barn with its red brick castle-style tower, arched glass doorway, exposed brick walls, oak beams and modern Italian mood lighting. The barn is perfect for your wedding breakfast and evening celebrations. Next, the Garden Room, ideal for reception drinks and canapés; a light and contemporary building with bi-folding doors, set within pretty walled gardens, with white walls, wooden floors and distinctive glass ceiling lights. Finally, in the grounds of Wasing Park, just a two minute walk from the Castle Barn, you’ll find the picturesque parish church of St Nicolas with its 15th century chapel and stunning stained glass windows and a white timber-clad turret housing a working iron bell.
Fantastic Wedding Photo Opportunities
Depending on your choice, the versatile places on offer at Wasing Park can accommodate between 30 to 140 guests. As well as the Honeymoon Suite, there are 26 well-appointed en suite bedrooms available for your guests in The Stables. Also, (subject to availability) – two self-catering properties: The Bothy, a two-bedroom cottage in the Secret Walled Garden, and Home Farm just a short stroll from the venue.
The photographic opportunities are endless at this stylish and sophisticated wedding venue. You’ll certainly be assured of a really wonderful romantic day, and a colourful set of stunning wedding photographs. Wasing Park in Berkshire is, indeed, an idyllic location for your Special Day, and one you’ll never ever forget.
