Facilities and Capacity
The modern Garden Room is absolutely stunning for your civil ceremony at Wasing Park. With windows that flood the space with natural daylight, white walls, wooden floors, and distinctive glass ceiling lights, this is the perfect space for brides and grooms to exchange their vows. If you wish to tie the knot in an outdoor setting, the Victorian Summerhouse, located within the Terrace Garden, is licensed for outdoor ceremonies. With its lush surroundings and beautifully painted murals on the summerhouse's interior, it's the perfect outdoor location. If a traditional church ceremony is what you've always dreamed of, the parish Church of St. Nicholas stands within the estate grounds. This beautiful 15th Century chapel boasts original characteristics, such as stained-glass windows and a white timber-clad turret. 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. The covered Castle Barn terrace is adorned with sheepskins, twinkling fairy lights, candles, and a fire pit, giving couples the perfect alfresco area, that can be used all year round.
Wasing Park also offers boutique overnight accommodation on the estate, the perfect place to relax after the excitement of the special day. The Old Estate Rooms offer absolute luxury in the form of nine elegant suites, including the spectacular Honeymoon Suite, The Dovecote, The Smithy, The Granary, and The Coach House, all of which offer fabulous and distinctive styling with individual touches such as triangular shaped beds, mezzanines, and free-standing copper baths. An additional 17 beautifully appointed bedrooms are available in The Stables, The Mews, and The Pump House. Situated in separate areas of the estate and subject to availability, are an additional two self-catering properties; The Bothy, a two-bedroom cottage in the Secret Walled Garden, and Home Farmhouse, a 6-bedroom cottage just a short walk from the venue. For couples who book The Old Estate Rooms for their wedding night, Wasing Park offers complimentary use of Kitts Cottage the night before the wedding day*. Perfect for pre-wedding pampering, this quaint country cottage is set in the beautiful Wasing Park property and offers plenty of space to relax and get a good night's sleep.

The best day of our lives
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’ve 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.
Perfect venue for our wedding day
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.
Absolute dream wddding venue!
Amazing venue and team
Our Dream Wedding
The venue itself is stunning. From the Garden Room, to the Summerhouse and to the Castle Barn - you really don’t 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’t recommend Wasing and the team enough!
The best day of our lives🤍
We honestly had the best day of our lives, and I cannot thank the team at Wasing enough for making it so perfect.

No words - incredible
Can we do it all over again?!
The girls stayed at Kitts Cottage the night before and we took use of the Old Farmhouse for the boys. The night before the wedding the bridal party all went out down the road to the Butts Inn pub for a meal and drinks before heading back to the Wasing Estate and our separare overnight accommodation. It was nice to start the wedding celebrations early.
We married in St Nicholas Church, Jane was our Priest and made everyone feel part of the ceremony. The welcome drinks went down a treat. The food is amazing - both presentation and the quality of food. Our wedding event manager Lucrecia put aside some canapes and a drink for us both so we could have some time together after we'd been taken away for our photos. We had the lamb as a main and it was cooked to perfection.
We came into the castle barn before the wedding breakfast and I was blown away by the set up, it's worth paying for the extra fairy lights to give it the 'wow' factor. No sooner have you finished the meal it's time to get the party started! We had the separate cocktail station which was set up next to the dance floor - we stayed on the dancefloor the whole night - reaching over every now and then for a cocktail to rehydrate (!) and dance again
Our guests loved the venue, it is stunning. We've had our first preview photos back and the backdrops from the Church to the countryside just make us want to relive it and do the whole thing again!
A lot of our guests stayed over in the on site accommodation overnight after the wedding. They get a link to make the bookings and pay themselves (outside of the package accommodation) so again, it's one less stress for yuo to worry about. Breakfast was lovely the next morning all together, with the stories of the day and night before beginning!
The Wedding staff walk you through the arrangements with a planner to complete by specific dates so you keep on track and keep a record of what you still have to do. In the final couple of weeks in the lead up to the wedding I put in a couple of calls panic checking on things and the girls were always friendly and happy to help.
You won't be disappointed, your wedding at Wasing will be the best day ever!! x
Best Venue Ever
The dream wedding venue!
An amazing experience at Wasing
We were first introduced to the venue during lockdown, we weren't able to visit straight away, but fell in love with the beauty and unique character of the entire site.
Both the garden room and the summer house are beautiful, offering multiple locations for a ceremony, and the castle barn is a stunning centrepiece to the day, serving as both a fantastic dining and disco area.
On top of that is the on site accommodation, which boasts a number of unique rooms within the standard accommodation package and even more high quality space if you have more guests wanting to stay. Those who did marveled at the comfortable beds and excellent breakfast the next morning.
Speaking of food, the food service for the wedding reception is spectacular. There are a number of options to suit all tastes, and the standard of service and quality of dishes was impeccable – certainly up to the standard of a high-end, bespoke restaurant service.
We opted for a premium choice – an outstanding beef Wellington – and had several guests clamouring for additional helpings. The starter and dessert courses didn't disappoint either, and were well paired with a generous wine selection available.
The staff were responsive and helpful throughout, effectively anticipating our needs and responding proactively to changes in the ever-volatile British weather, keeping everything running smoothly so we didn't have to worry about a thing.
Of particular note on the day were Imogen, and later Jenna, who ran the day for us. The team's service was prompt and turnaround was quick ready for the evening's entertainment.
In all Wasing is every bit the premium experience which you are paying for. The surroundings are peaceful and have some incredible locations for pictures (without anyone having to walk too far in heels), the new covered patio area is a great extension of the space – no doubt of even greater use in the summer months.
We couldn't be happier with the amazing Wasing experience and would highly recommend it.
To our wedding organiser Noni, from helping decorating the venue, for making sure everything was on time and ready, for making us feel very relaxed and for being so attentive.
Food- very tasty, full of flavour😋
To conclude, we are very happy customers. You will be impressed with the beauty of the venue and very happy with the service they offer.
Thank you for making our big day so special.
Isabel & Fernando.
