Trunkwell House Mansion House – a beautiful country house wedding venue


trunkwell-brideTrunkwell Mansion House is a 19th Century countryside mansion house wedding venue, a few miles south of Reading in Berkshire and near to my studio. It’s one of my favourite Berkshire wedding venues and is beautifully situated at the end of a long driveway off the little village of Beech Hill, settled in 34 acres of lovely Berkshire countryside.

The Victorian Manor house has some beautiful gardens and is justly famous for it’s wedding marquee, a spacious and beautiful place to hold your ceremony and reception. It looks particularly impressive with it’s starlight effect draped ceiling. Unlike a lot of marquees, there is plenty of room for you and your guests to enjoy the wedding day. There are windows along the side and it makes for a lovely view during the wedding meal.

There are many photogenic corners in and around Trunkwell and it’s nice to take a walk down through the gardens to the edged of the fields for some bride and groom photographs (see below).

Here are some wedding photographs from a couple of weddings at Trunkwell House.

The wedding marquee can be set up in different ways depending on your wishes.

We took a little walk around the grounds for some photographs before the guests arrived. It’s always nice to take five minutes just to be together on the day.

The best thing about Trunkwell House weddings

The best thing about wedding photography at Trunkwell House is the beautiful gardens with lovely photogenic corners and the countryside in which it is set. There’s a nice, tree lined drive from the road in the tiny village of Beech Hill and it’s lovely for the guests to arrive at the venue, tucked away off the main road.



Trunkwell House looks out over fields and is a lovely place for photography.


The wedding guests arrived and enjoyed drinks on the lawn. The gardens are a really nice size and there’s lots of space to spread out.


A group shot of all the wedding guests is a must on the day.


The dance floor is always popular with the little ones!
