The Berkshire countryside provides one of the most picturesque settings for your wedding. With an exciting variety of spaces on the property, Wickham House allows you to create an imaginative and diverse experience that will offer you and your guests an unforgettable occasion, for a small intimate wedding reception or a large formal affair. The wedding breakfast and dancing will be held in a bespoke marquee sited in the large pasture in front of the house. Drinks beforehand can be held in a couple of different venues, whether it be in or around the fountain on our main front terrace, or in the stunning Walled Garden, or in the two principal reception rooms in the Main House.
When looking for a large or small intimate wedding reception venue in Berkshire, you will not find a more optimal setting than Wickham House. As a premiere Berkshire venue, the team at Wickham House will exceed your needs to create the perfect experience for your special day.
As a venue for both formal and alternative weddings in Berkshire, Wickham House can perfectly accommodate both religious and civil ceremonies. The charming church, run by the Church of England, is directly adjacent to the marquee site, facilitating total privacy and removing any issue of transporting guests between the two elements of your wedding. If you wish to be married in a civil ceremony, or prefer a small intimate wedding venue in Berkshire, our beautiful Barn seats up to 125 theatre-style. Alternatively, if the weather is likely to be kind, outside garden wedding ceremonies can be held in the Walled Garden, under a permanent pagoda shaped structure, which gives onto a sunken lawn where up to 200 guests can be comfortably seated and which can be covered by a simple side-less marquee if the weather looks iffy. Obviously this combines well with a drinks reception in the Walled Garden immediately afterwards.
We will never host more than one event a fortnight, ensuring you have the space, time and privacy to make your event highly personalized and unique.
