Wasing Park, Berkshire on the Wasing Estate, is pretty special. This is based on first hand experience as I looked at it twice last year as a potential venue for my own wedding. On my first visit snow was just turning to sludge and there was a real nip in the air. It still looked stunning. On my second visit Spring was just starting to make an appearance, and now with the Fiance in tow, we had a really good feeling about the place.
The 18th century grounds are sprawling and well maintained. In fact it’s quite hard to put in to words just how pretty the buildings and the grounds are. Long sweeping drive? Check. A sense of being cut off from it all but just an hour from London on the train? Check. A beautiful bridal room? Check. Rooms for the wedding party to stay? Check. Picturesque Chapel on site? Check. An efficient wedding coordination team? Check.
I still read the posts from Love My Dress every day so I was beside myself with excitement when I saw a wedding at Wasing…..in the woods. Wedding planners Pocketful of Dreams got in touch to say it’s a dry hire, which means no minimum numbers, and offers complete flexibility. So I got straight on the phone to Wasing Park.
You can get married in the Folly which is part of the Secret Walled Garden and then celebrate in the woods. In with the price for the newly married couple is a stay in The Bothy, also available the night before for an additional charge. Or if you want to keep the festival vibe you can stay in a luxury bell tent and sleep beneath the stars. Additional accommodation is also available on site if you have extra wedding guests who would like to stay. Go look!
The Woodland wedding venue offers couples a tranquil space for their special day, beneath towering trees and set alongside the stunning ‘Ice Pond’. This eco-friendly venue is entirely yours to create a bespoke experience that you and your guests will never forget….. set up tipis around the pine trees for camping to create the ultimate outdoor festival wedding!
