The focal point of Wasing Park is the Castle Barn; with a contemporary and chic interior, it works exceptionally well for the wedding breakfast and evening party. The entrance is impressive, with a red brick castle-style tower and arched glass doorway. Blending traditional design features with modern mood lighting, the Castle Barn sets the scene for a wonderfully romantic day.

Dream venue

We booked Wasing Park back in April 2021 and got married on Friday 7th April 2023. Throughout the two years of liaising with Wasing we were amazed with their professional and effective responses, each and every member of the team that we spoke with were so kind, patient (we had lots of questions!) and professional. We had an in person look around the venue in April 2021 before we promptly booked, we then had our tasting in November 2022 and visited in January 2023 at the Winter Showcase. We had a zoom meeting where we discussed their very organised Event Planning excel spreadsheet, which was super helpful. The team and our fantastic wedding coordinator, Lucrecia, were amazing in the lead up to the wedding, checking in on us to make sure we were okay and all was in order. The catering team were fab, and were able to cater for our fully vegan wedding, which was very important to us. Nothing was ever too much of an ask for the Wasing team. When it came to the day, Lucrecia and all of the Wasing staff were fantastic, they ensured the day ran smoothly, that we had everything we needed and that everything was how it should be. The team are incredible and we are so grateful to everything they did to allow our day to be absolutely perfect. The venue itself is absolutely stunning. It was the only venue we viewed in person and we knew it was the one, it was booked within a week of our engagement! It is so lovely to have three options of where you can have your ceremony, the Castle Barn is simply beautiful and it鈥檚 great to have quirky and comfortable accommodation on site. Really convenient for our guests. When we were looking for venues, we wanted somewhere where we could do minimal styling and it still look absolutely stunning. It has so many stunning locations for pictures and the honeymoon suite is a non negotiable! I would wholeheartedly recommend Wasing Park for your dream wedding venue, you won鈥檛 regret it! From the incredible staff to the unbeatable setting, it really is the perfect wedding venue. Thank you to all Wasing staff for making our day absolutely perfect.

Perfect Venue

Every member of the team was so approachable, helpful and friendly, and made the day run so smoothly. We are forever grateful to them, especially our events manager, Jenna. The response to emails was also very prompt and professional, never making us feel like we were asking any silly questions.

So many of our guests also complimented the food and said the catering was excellent. We are so grateful to the chefs for being so accommodating with the many dietary requirements on the day.

What a beautiful venue and an amazing team!

Amazing staff at a wonderful venue

We got married at Wasing Park in April 2024, and we can't recommend the venue highly enough. We had an amazing day (despite miserable weather!) thanks in no small part to our event manager Emma and the rest of the Wasing staff.

As well as the location and facilities being stunning, the team offered clear communication in a friendly, professional manner during the months and weeks prior to our big day. This included addressing a range of issues surrounding accommodation, accessibility, and the need for wet-weather contingency plans. The planning procedure implemented by Wasing takes so much stress out of the process, and they were keen to encourage additional viewings of the venue and accommodation as well as a fantastic menu-tasting evening.

Our bridal party made use of Kitts Cottage the night before the wedding, and this was a great way for family members and key personnel to gather before the big day. And then when it actually came to our wedding day, Emma was amazing. She used her initiative during set-up to ensure the smoothest possible day for us both, but clearly communicated any key updates or changes to our itinerary.

Emma co-ordinated with the registrar and our photographer to change plans on the spot when the weather turned (confetti shot in the Garden Room), and was always on hand to ensure we had anything and everything we needed. She also coordinated a clear handover to Ella for the final part of the evening, ensuring we knew who to approach with any questions or concerns. Having an event manager assigned to our wedding was one of the deciding factors in choosing Wasing as our wedding venue, and this turned out to be the best decision we could have made.

The food (canap茅s, Granary Menu, wood-fired pizza and cheese in the evening) was superb, and the bar/waiting staff were excellent. They turned the Castle Barn around from dining room to a dance floor in under 30 minutes, and did a fantastic job clearing up and collating items for pick-up the following morning.

Additionally, the Estate Rooms accommodation was beautiful and presented to an incredibly high standard while breakfast the following morning in the Stables Lodge with all our overnight guests was a really nice way to round out the wedding. The whole experience was genuinely faultless.

Perfect in every way!

We booked Wasing Park for our December wedding, and it was the best decision we have ever made!
The whole process was seamless, from the communication in the build up, to the logistics of the day, to the incredible venue itself.
The food, the views, the service, everything was spot on - particularly our event manager on the day (Imogen), who made sure that the day went off without a hitch! She handled everything we asked with zero fuss and a smile - allowing us to both relax and enjoy the happiest day of our lives.
Tons of our guests said Wasing Park was the nicest wedding venue they had ever been to, and I have to agree! Thank you!!

Incredibly special!

We had a magical festive wedding and were made to feel so special right from the first moment. Our wedding co-ordinator Lucrecia planned everything to perfection and all of our personal requests, such as a Christmas dairy free dinner, sparklers, a Father Christmas visit and special champagne were catered for without question. She also gave us some time alone together during the day so we could take a step back and take in all those special moments! The food was outstanding, the day organised to perfection and the venue was so beautiful, everything was exactly as we expected wanted.

The best day of our lives

We got married at Wasing Park two weeks ago. The whole experience was fantastic from start to finish. We fell in love with the venue as soon as visited back in 2021.
We were assigned Emma Norton as our event manager who was fantastic in the lead up and even better on the day.
Many of our guests said this was the best wedding they鈥檝e been to referencing the high quality of the food and the attentiveness of the staff.
Thank you Wasing Park for helping to make our wedding day the best day of our lives.

Exceptional service

Noni and the rest of the staff were absolutely fantastic in the build up and on the day of our wedding. They were there to help us anytime we needed it, always there to offer a top up (which is always nice) and ensured that my partner and I could sit back and enjoy our special day. The food was absolutely exceptional, which all of our guests mentioned as well and we just had the best day. We couldn't recommend them enough!

Perfect venue for our wedding day

Wasing Park was perfect for us, and had everything we were after. Everything is there that you could need on site: we even got married on the little church on site, the barn is amazing, and lots of accommodation on site for all our family and friends.
The food and service was brilliant throughout, and got lots of compliments.
The staff are highly organised and helped to answer all our questions and make sure it all ran smoothly on the day.
Loved it here and would recommend to anyone.

Our dream wedding day

The moment we viewed Wasing Park, we knew it was our dream wedding venue. From the picturesque grounds to the friendly staff, we couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else. From start to finish the experience and service was faultless and we felt safe in the hands of the Wasing event team in the lead up to our big day. Each and every member of staff we spoke with were so attentive and professional and could not do enough to make sure our questions were answered. They were always so friendly and patient and ensured that the planning went as smooth as stress-free as possible. We had many meetings with the event team through the lead up to our wedding including a fabulous food tasting session so we could pick our menu choices. The food was incredible, and a lovely touch in the lead up to the wedding, not only to pick food choices but to see the Castle Barn and Garden Room set up as a wedding would be, alongside meeting some of the recommended suppliers. We met with Lucrecia who was our Wedding Coordinator a few weeks before our wedding and she was just incredible and made our day unforgettable! Lucrecia ensured the day ran smoothly, was attentive and kept us topped up with drinks and canapes! She understood how we wanted the venue to be set up, and everything was absolutely perfect on the day, just as we envisioned it to be. On the day Lucrecia took away any stress from us and we didn't need to think about anything so we could enjoy every moment with our family and friends. We had so many compliments from our guests, including the high quality of food and how delicious and well presented it was, the professionalism of the waiters and waitresses and how stunning Wasing is as a Wedding Venue. We loved that no matter the weather, there was enough space to be inside and still use the outside terrace, which is lit up in the evening and looks beautiful. When we went to the honeymoon suite, there was a bottle of prosecco and pizza for us which was a lovely touch. Thank you again Wasing for our fairytale x

Our Dream Wedding

From the moment we enquired with Wasing Park, right through to the big day itself, the team have been absolutely amazing! No request was too big and they always got back to our queries straight away. Imogen (our Weddings Manager) was amazing - so patient when answering our never ending questions and changes to the itinerary and she made the day run seamlessly. She even saved my dress from being stained after I spilled one of the delicious canap茅s down myself straight after the ceremony! Neither myself nor my partner drink, but Imogen went above and beyond to make sure we had delicious non-alcoholic options available and we even had flowers in our champagne flutes of water!
The venue itself is stunning. From the Garden Room, to the Summerhouse and to the Castle Barn - you really don鈥檛 have to add much styling to any of the spaces as they are already stunning. We also loved having accommodation onsite so our friends and family could stay and have a farewell breakfast before ending the celebrations.
We had the most perfect day and can鈥檛 recommend Wasing and the team enough!

The best day of our lives馃

I cannot recommend Wasing more, it is the perfect wedding venue. From point of show round through to the day itself, the team were fantastic. On the day our event manager, Nikki, was perfect. She put us both at ease in the lead up, and was such a great support on the day. We were so lucky to have her as our event manager! The day ran seamlessly from start to finish, we were unlucky with the weather but The Garden Room was lovely for our ceremony and drinks reception, and the Barn looked amazing for the Wedding Breakfast! I would definitely recommend taking the nine suites package, as being at Kitts the morning of with all my bridesmaids and mum was so lovely. The food was great, all of our guests were complimenting it throughout the evening and the days after, and the chefs were very understanding as we had a guest with severe allergies. The drinks were event better, I highly recommend the Picpoul and Malbec!!

We honestly had the best day of our lives, and I cannot thank the team at Wasing enough for making it so perfect.

Faultless, the most amazing venue there is!

Choosing Wasing Park as our wedding venue was the best decision we have ever made! From the moment we saw the venue online, we knew it was the one. From start to finish, the planning process was made super easy by the team. As we got into the lead up of the wedding, our amazing wedding planner Emma had everything under control to manage our stresses. On the day, Emma was there waiting with Pimms in hand as soon as we had said 'I do', we had our own canape selection ready and waiting for us when doing the photos, and before we had to ask Emma about certain parts of the day it was all handled with and Emma was 10 steps ahead. Emma, we thank you for making our day stress free and allowing us to soak in every minute. The best touch of the night was having water, prosecco and leftover pizza and doughnuts waiting in our suite for us!! The waiting staff were impeccable and did not go unnoticed of how professional they were. The food was the best we have eaten the aesthetics of Wasing are still being talked about now.

Just thank you!!!!
