The Perfect day
By Megan and Will, on 15 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Dec 2017
From the moment we viewed Ufton Court we knew it was the venue for us. Not only was it beautiful but we were so warmly welcomed by Verity, who would become our wedding co-ordinator, that we felt immediately at ease. We got married on Saturday 23rd December so it was really important there was enough room inside for all our guests and we could move from place to place easily! The planning and the lead up to the big day was made so much easier by the wonderful Verity- I cannot rate her enough! She had some brilliant suggestions and made us feel very relaxed about the day itself. It was on the actual day though that we really appreciated her presence, she worked incredibly hard in the morning to set up the venue and then made sure it went smoothly! Everything looked SO beautiful and I know Verity and her team had a huge part to play in that. It was a truly magical day and I can’t thank Ufton Court enough for making it a day we will never forgot. I would recommend Ufton Court to anyone that is looking for their venue right now! THANK YOU!!
Perfect venue in a perfect setting

We looked at a few different barn venues for our wedding but as soon as we drove into Ufton Court we knew that it was the one for us. The Tithe Barn itself is spectacular as are the grounds which surround it, they truly made an amazing backdrop for the photos. From our first visit to the venue everyone we met was great and really enthusiastic about the venue and listening to what we wanted from our day. The fact that you can really put your own mark on the wedding was definitely one of the things that worked for us and we loved planning the whole day. We went to one of the wedding fairs soon after we booked the venue which was really helpful to get to chat to the suppliers and get a feel for what they could offer. We spoke with three of the caterers and decided to go with Fosters Catering as, being foodies, we thought that they could best deliver and we weren’t disappointed! All of the suppliers we chose were great, really friendly and helpful and used to Ufton Court as a venue. Our wedding coordinator was Verity and she was great in the run up to the wedding, answering our questions and making sure everything ran smoothly on the day. All of our guests commented that they loved the venue and we can’t speak highly enough of Ufton Court, we especially loved being able to tell our guests that all the profits from the venue go to the Educational Trust.
The Perfect Venue!

We had our wedding at Ufton Court in September and could not have asked for a better venue! From the first day we visited and Verity took us around, we knew this would be the perfect venue for us: a welcoming tithe barn, beautiful grounds, a historical house - such a great combination for hosting both the ceremony and reception in one place not to mention contributing to such a good cause! Ufton's wedding expertise came in so handy, from their suggested suppliers to the items available to rent, there was so much help for the planning. Verity was so good at helping us both in the run up to the wedding and on the day and so patient with all our questions and flexible and accommodating to our ideas.
We're so glad we chose Ufton Court for our special day and would highly recommend it as the perfect wedding venue!
A unique and beautiful Berkshire wedding venue
By Heather Caughey, on 30 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 31 Aug 2017
This is such a versatile venue with options of the Tudor manor house, it's terrace with views over the beautiful sunken garden and herb garden, the amazing tithe barn with its immaculate terrace and a smaller but perfectly formed building, Archer's Hall.
The house provides a grand entrance and a great wet weather option for your drinks reception, as does Archer's Hall which can be used while the barn is turned around for the evening.
The Wedding Fayre is 100% worth going to if you're considering holding your wedding at Ufton Court. The network of suppliers who all know the venue is unbelievably helpful if you're feeling overwhelmed at the prospect of a DIY day.
We were assigned a new wedding coordinator half way through, Verity, who is in my opinion, superwoman. She was so accommodating and patient and liaised with our expanding list of suppliers.
The only drawback to Ufton Court is that it is a very popular venue which means you only get the day so set up and pack down has to be done within the day and there is no accommodation on site. The best way around this in our experience is to pack everything into clearly labelled boxes and hire a man and a van to deliver and collect. There are some restrictions and limitations to things you can't do with the decor but Verity was generally very flexible and came up with alternatives if there was ever anything which wouldn't work.
All in all, this venue is one of a kind and we can see why it is so popular, the network of suppliers, namely Foster's Catering, Croppers in Bloom, Oakwood events and Vanilla Spice Cake Company are a credit to the venue and contribute towards the five star rating above.
A magical place for a magical day
By David & Helen Toms, on 24 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 27 Aug 2017
Ufton Court for us was the dream venue and the Tithe Barn was beyond compare. The grounds, the beautiful house and the barn all make Ufton Court a very unique place and the team there are truly amazing. Our ceremony was held in the barn then followed by reception drinks on the terrace behind the house near the sunken garden. With the sun shining there was nowhere else you could imagine being. The grounds are beautiful and offer plenty of space but while still remaining very intimate. We had the absolute pleasure of Emma as our wedding co-ordinator to look after us and to make our day the most special day which we will remember forever. Emma and the team were so professional and caring which made us feel well looked after and helped us feel relaxed knowing everything was being taken care of. Stephan was also so amazing and he deserves a medal for all he did for us on the day. Thank you Ufton from the bottom of our hearts!
Venue of Our Dreams!
By Tara Howe, on 23 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 18 Aug 2017
I had always known about Ufton Court as a wedding venue. As a teenager I used to work as a waitress and barmaid for other weddings and always loved the history behind the venue. It wasn't until I started planning my own wedding that I realised that every flower clad, white tulle and lace vision I had about the big day was so because of all the beautiful weddings I had witnessed at Ufton Court. When we went to look around - it did not fail me and it confirmed why the other wedding venues we had seen just didn't cut it.
The layout of the buildings and serene countryside lend itself to romance and elegance. We held our very own mini funfair and there was ample space to do so. The wedding team were accommodating and help us achieve everything we wanted to achieve on our special day.
I would definitely recommend this as a wedding venue, wether you are looking for a rustic and quaint barn or a classic elegant house, Ufton Court has it all!
Unbelievable venue made for an incredible day
By Peter and Charlotte Straw, on 17 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 14 Aug 2017
Once we went and looked around Ufton Court and met our wedding co-ordinator, Verity, there was no other place that even compared - the grounds are spectacular, the Tithe barn is wonderful, beautifully rustic and completely suited to our needs. We ended up having our dream wedding - all of our guests commented to us about how special the place was. so much character and the grounds were perfect for lovely, scenic photos.
What was also extra special to us was that Ufton Court is an educational trust - I, and so many of our guests who lived local, had been there as children and learnt about sustainability and nature, and it meant so much to us that the cost of the venue went towards the children of the future sharing those same valuable experiences that I did as a child - not just going to some corporate chain!
Verity was also so accommodating to our needs - she made it so very easy and we trusted her knowledge and experience to deliver the day we wanted, and she definitely did that! It was also useful that Ufton Court is well known as a venue in the area - we used one of their recommended food suppliers who were also excellent (we had a lot of positive feedback about the food) and everything seemed to happen seamlessly.
I could not recommend Ufton Court as a venue highly enough, I don't ever intend to marry again, but if I did I would use it again!! A big thank you to Verity and all the staff at Ufton Court for making our day so special!
By Matt and Fran, on 22 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 10 Aug 2017
We couldn't have asked for a better venue. The grounds are beautiful with so much in the minor details, that really make Ufton stand out from the rest. Everything leading up was great as well. Verity our co-coordinator was lovely and so very helpful. Having the use of both the barns and the manor house is a great. Made for a really nice change of scene. Highly recommend!!
Amazing and perfect venue
By Sam and Carley Freathy, on 04 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 08 Aug 2017
Everything about this venue was perfect for our big day! We couldn't have asked for more. The location and the atmosphere combine perfectly to make it feel even more magical. The Barn is spectacular while also feeling intimate and the grounds are beautiful. Having everything (pretty much) under one roof makes the day flow a lot more naturally as well. You could do a lot worse than picking this incredible venue. And it helps Children when it's not marrying people off. So I'm not sure what more you could ask for.
I have to add a massive, special shout out to our wedding coordinator Verity as well. She was phenomenal and made sure our day ran smoothly and perfectly. I have no doubt that all the staff at Ufton Court are incredible but count yourself lucky if she's the one helping you on your big day.
If that's not quite enough, it's also very reasonably priced compared to much more expensive and much, much less enchanting venues that we looked at.
So once again, it's an amazing venue that I can't recommend enough!
The Perfect Venue for a perfect day
By Jeremy and Carleen Masson, on 13 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 24 Jul 2017
Knowing Ufton Court through our Educational Connections, it was the perfect setting for our wedding celebrations. We were hugely impressed with the personal service right from day one of our initial enquiry - a huge thank you to Verity for all of her support, reassurance and being so hands on throughout the actual day.
Ufton Court is such a special venue - beautiful scenery, stunning buildings and lovely outside spaces all help to create a really unique experience. So many of our guests commented on how special the venue was.
The ability to be able to select so many of the wedding decorations and catering details allows for a real personal touch. This aspect, along with the support of the wedding coordinators at Ufton Court, allowed us to realise a truly unique wedding that captured our personalities.
The icing on the cake is that Ufton Court is a non-for profit charity that supports educational work - as two teachers, this work is hugely important and we were so delighted to able to support this with our wedding here.
An incredible venue
By Laura and Gunnar Larsson, on 28 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Jul 2017
Ufton Court offered fantastic advice and support throughout the build up to our big day. Our Wedding co-ordinator Verity went above and beyond and made us feel calm and prepared for the most incredible day of our lives. Even with a bit of rain this venue offers a fantastic setting and can work with any vision you have in mind.
Our perfect wedding at Ufton Court
By David Pardey & Mark Cox, on 18 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 09 Jul 2017
We couldn’t have wished for anything better. From the initial site visit we knew that Ufton Court was the venue for us. A beautiful barn, set in gorgeous grounds and the option to also use the Elizabethan manor house should we wish. Our wedding co-ordinator was Verity and from beginning to end Verity was there to answer our questions and provide practical solutions, going out of her way to ensure our needs were met. Verity worked really closely with all the other sub-contractors including the Ufton Court gardening team to confirm that all the I’s were dotted and T’s were crossed. On the day itself Verity and her team maintained the highest standards, in a professional yet friendly and welcoming manner. Our July wedding was blessed with beautiful sunshine that really allowed the venue to sing – that said, having been to a wedding at Ufton Court with less than favourable weather, it was still the magical venue we loved from the outset. Our guests were quite simply blown away by the setting and the understated ease and sincerity with which the course of the day followed. We would not hesitate to recommend Ufton Court to other couples. The whole experience from planning through to the aftercare was second to none. Well done Verity and your great team!
