With its unique setting, stunning interior and divine menu options, Wasing Park has much to offer any couple looking for that special barn wedding venue. We asked our very own Wedding Specialist Julia, just what makes Wasing Park so magical…
1. It’s got that ‘wow’ factor
My first impression of Wasing Park in Berkshire was ‘Wow’. The driveway up to the barn through the extensive grounds is utterly beautiful and makes you feel special straight away! The overall look is characterful and medieval which I loved. It’s perfectly suited to couples looking for a rustic or vintage wedding venue within a grand, elegant environment.
2. It has so much to offer
Wasing Park is an exclusive use venue so couples can enjoy having the whole estate to themselves! There are a whole range of ceremony options available, from civil ceremonies in The Garden Room or the Victorian Summerhouse, to church ceremonies in St Nicholas Church, which is actually set within the grounds of Wasing Park itself. It’s unusual and wonderful to see a church immediately opposite The Castle Barn – another thing that adds to the unique setting and character of this dreamy venue.
3. The décor is idyllic
I would describe the interior as rustic in style with a contemporary, polished finish. Most civil ceremonies are held in The Garden Room which is light, bright and neutral. Wedding receptions are held in The Castle Barn which is also neutral in décor with an abundance of dark wood – perfect to team up with any colour scheme. The furnishings throughout the venue enable couples to keep their venue dressing understated or to go ‘all out’ with their chosen colours if they choose to.

4. There are extensive grounds
The outdoor space at Wasing Park is exceptional. Weather permitting, the patio area is perfect for drinks receptions and canapés, while the Summerhouse makes a wonderful alternative to The Garden Room for those looking for an outdoor ceremony.
