Ufton Court – an unusual, historic Berkshire wedding venue
Ufton Court, near Ufton Nervet, Reading is one of my top 5 Berkshire wedding venues. It’s a historic venue and the beautiful rural location some ten miles from the town of Reading is based around a wonderful Elizabethan manor house and Tithe Barn. The building dates back to the 11th Century (there are some parts of this original building still visible in the main hall). Needless to say, a sense of history pervades the main house and it stands out from similar venues because of this.
You can get married in the Tithe Barn, in the main house or in the Archers Hall at Ufton Court. It’s nice that a wedding venue is so flexible in terms of layout and where to hold your wedding ceremony.
The Tithe Barn is a particularly nice place to hold your ceremony and/or your reception. The atmosphere of the building is apparent as soon as you walk in – it’s lovely at all times of year, cosy and welcoming with plenty of space for your wedding guests.
The best thing about Ufton Court
One of favourite parts of an Ufton Court wedding is the atmosphere created by the timeless, rural setting, historic listed buildings and, particularly if your reception is in the Tithe Barn, the lovely surroundings of the courtyard that exists between the barn and the Archers Hall.
The other major aspect is of course that by holding your wedding at Ufton Court, you are helping to directly fund a very worthwhile children’s charity. Mary and her team do such a good job helping children in the area benefit from staying at the house and the cabins and enjoying a rural learning break from their normal lives.
It’s wonderful to take a few minutes to take a walk along the driveway and behind the main house to create some beautiful bride and groom photographs together. There are many parts of Ufton Court that lend themselves as backdrops to some stunning wedding photographs, the long, sweeping, oak lined driveway, the sunken garden and of course the Manor House itself.
Julia and the team at Ufton Court are a delight to work with, professional and dedicated, they do a great job of making your wedding run smoothly and efficiently.
I first got involved with Ufton Court wedding photography at my first celebration there about 15 years ago. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting many times since then of course and it’s always a pleasure to provide brides and grooms with beautiful, sensitive, timeless wedding photographs from one of Berkshire’s most atmospheric wedding venues.
