  7. Lily says:

    After reading through this, I have almost decided that we shall have a Berkshire Wedding, going to show my fiance this article later. only an hour or so’s drive from my mothers side of the family too! The vineyard would be my first choice for venue, but the others look good too!! oooohh exciting times! 🙂

  8. Amy says:

  9. Ann Abbitz says:

  15. Hanny says:

    I have never been to Berkshire, but after reading about the different venues, catering companies and florists, I am very much convinced that this would be perfect for my vineyard venue wedding. The vineyard at stockcross sounds like my ideal wedding venue, especially if we get samples of the wine. Not only that, but this would add a bit of charm to my wedding and make it even more special.

    I never thought about a farm venue, but Combe Manor sounds absolutely divine. I am always looking for unique wedding venues and this seems to be a great venue besides the vineyard.

    This list has made my catering search easy. The wild fork catering company sounds like a company I would go for, especially if I want to go with something traditional.

    My wedding isn’t for a long time, but it helps to plan ahead and Berkshire sounds like my dream wedding destination.

  16. Miranda Hackett says:

    There are such beautiful venues in Berkshire given the gorgeous country houses, stunning landscapes and added interest of the Thames, that it is always a delight to provide flowers for a Berkshire based wedding. Old favourites being the oak beamed barns, rustic country houses and summery marquees which are just yearning to be draped in soft foliage and flowing floral designs. But anything is possible from Flowers by Miranda where weddings are our key focus – http://www.flowersbymiranda.com and facebook.com/flowersbymiranda. Look out for our new branding and website, coming soon!

    I was actually mentioning this location to my fiance’ a few days ago! I love everything, the sites, the hotels, everything looks beautiful but having a Surrey wedding feels like it is the right way to go. Some of my fiance’s family is also in the area so they wont have to travel far which is always a bonus.

  23. earcandy says:

    Fantastic! It looks like it may be a Surrey wedding for you then 🙂 We wish you all the best and please let us know if there is anything we can help with.

  24. Lucas Hens says:

    Berkshire is my favourite place to visit from childhood. I’ve been there for several months when I used to play ice-hockey at Bracknell Bees. I am going to arrange my daughter reception in Berkshire maybe in Combe Manor or in Oakley Court Hotel. Great article indeed, I found all the wedding related information at one place.
