Venue Setting

Wasing Park is one of Berkshire's best kept secrets, in the beating heart of the South East, nestled between the Berkshire villages of Aldermaston, Brimpton and Woolhampton, Wasing has matured gracefully over 250 years under the ownership of the same family since 1759.

Now an award winning wedding and events venue Wasing Park offers a number of options for that romantic ‘I do’ moment. Couples looking for a civil ceremony can tie the knot in the contemporary Garden Room or outside in the picturesque Victorian Summerhouse. For church weddings, we are fortunate to have the 15th century Parish Church of St Nicholas set within our grounds and just a minute's walk from The Castle Barn.

The Garden Room is just the place to enjoy welcome drinks and delicious canapés, created for you by the talented Galloping Gourmet team. Let your guests mingle over Champagne and Pimms while your photographer captures wonderful photographs with amazing backdrops of your special day. 

Make your way to the magnificent Castle Barn for your wedding breakfast, whether you’re choosing a formal fine dining experience, elegant afternoon tea or a delicious barbecue. Finally, relax into your evening celebrations, cutting your wedding cake and taking to the dance floor to dance the night away.

Venue Features
Design:
The unique grade two listed Castle Barn with its striking oak beams and candle lit arrow slits makes the perfect backdrop for every wedding and event at Wasing Park. Converted especially for events it has a huge stage with great acoustics and a fully stocked bar serving local real ale. Step outside on to the terrace with views over beautiful parkland and enjoy a sundowner before partying the night away.
Standout Venue Features:
Wasing Park has some wonderful, iconic agricultural grade two listed buildings that sit in the heart of the venue, the Granary, the Dovecote, and Old Blacksmith’s Shop 'the Smithy.' These have recently been renovated from redundant farm buildings into very unique suites. The Dovecote, a circular building wih triangular feature bed and copper bath still has the original ladder inside that was used to access the individual dove boxes. The Granary sitting on its staddle stones, is a two storey building, with copper bath in the bedroom. As for the the Smithy, a bespoke chandelier was designed using the wonderful oak frame and a cascade of individual lights. Alongside these stunning suites, Wasing boasts an exquisite Honeymoon Suite with the 'biggest bed in Berkshire' and plenty of space for the bride and her bridal party to get ready.
Extra Perks:
Every wedding and event at Wasing Park has exclusive use of the venue and boutique hotel.

The head chef enjoys nothing more than foraging to create gourmet delights for events and creating menus from Estate sourced ingredients taking produce from the land, rivers and gardens that surround the venue, including venison, pheasant and crayfish to name but a few.
