Set amongst stunning grounds and courtyards, surrounded by beautiful red brick Victorian facades and colonnades, your occasion will be imbued with a unique historical and natural beauty – an extraordinary setting that will be treasured in memory and photos.
Wellington College has three wonderful venues to accommodate your wedding reception or other special occasion: Great School and Waterloo Hall for guest numbers up to 100 pax, which are also both licensed for civil ceremonies via Bracknell Registry Office, and the largest of the three, Dining Hall for weddings or parties with over 100 guests.
Due to Church of England marriage license restrictions, the College Chapel is only available for weddings if you are an Old Wellingtonian, or a staff member.
We would be delighted to offer you the opportunity to hold both your wedding ceremony and reception at Wellington College. However, if you should plan to hold your ceremony elsewhere, we would be happy to offer you the reception-only package. Please note that all bookings that include a reception must be for a minimum of 50 guests.

The College offers hospitality prowess delivered by Sodexo’s fine chefs, providing a broad selection of traditional and contemporary menu options: from light refreshments, grazing boards, canapes, through to fine dining 3-course menus. Fully licenced to serve alcohol, we offer a range of drinks and cocktails, including the option to have a bar at your celebrations.
We look forward to discussing your requirements with you.
With so many fond memories of my time studying at Wellington College, it was the first place that we thought of when we began to plan our wedding. Having the opportunity to get married in the Chapel was a dream come true and we had the most magical ceremony. All of our guests commented on the fabulous setting and it was wonderful to be able to share it with them for the day. Having our wedding photos taken in some of our favourite places around the stunning buildings and grounds was also very special. Heartfelt thanks to the events team for everything they did to make our day so perfect.
