Barn wedding venues are as popular as ever in 2020 and Berks, Bucks and Oxon offer a wealth of properties to choose from. In the February/March issue on sale now we showcase Fison Barn
Nestling at the foot of the Wittenham Clumps nature reserve, Fison Barn is set amidst 1,200 acres of countryside. This stunning and beautifully maintained nineteenth-century barn boasts original oak beams which have been lovingly restored and local Western Red Cedar has been used on the exterior cladding.
The large barn doors open onto a tranquil courtyard where bats and swallows have made their homes in the barn eaves, red kites swoop overhead and there are floral displays of herbs and plants attracting butterflies and insects. The courtyard area provides an ideal extension for events in good weather or an area for a marquee...

For anyone looking for a picture-perfect wedding venue voco Oxford Thames Hotel has it all!
As you approach the hotel, the sweeping tree-lined driveway opens up to reveal the beautiful Cotswolds stone buildings, which surround the Medieval barns and the grade II listed, 15th-century manor house. Nestled within 30 acres of grounds, this charming hotel sits on the bank of the River Thames, providing the most picture-perfect setting.
With a history dating back to the middle ages, it was originally headquarters of the Knights Templar, the house and its lands have been owned by notable religious figures, lords, and even kings throughout the centuries.
For vows, couples can choose to make the most of the idyllic River Thames location with an outdoor ceremony at our Riverside Gazebo. Here, elegant white chairs and a pretty gazebo sit wonderfully within the natural landscape and host up to 200 guests.
A magical setting for more intimate ceremonies of 30, take to the water and say your vows aboard the St. John's College Barge. As the dappled light filters through the trees to the pretty boat below, you'll know this is a wedding day unlike any other. Not only can this be used for ceremonies, it is the perfect backdrop for photos.

*swoon* how dreamy is this picture-perfect big-day venue, it looks like it's come straight from a postcard!
Minster Mill is set in the heart of the quintessential village of Minster Lovell in 65 magical acres on the banks of the River Windrush. You'll find an enchanting blend of romantic riverside gardens, luxuriant wildflower meadows and peaceful woodland.
Elegant, timeless and unique, Minster Mill is a charming mix of honey-coloured Cotswold stone buildings barely a hundred years old, but it is built on the foundations of a thousand-year-old mill that was documented in the Domesday Book of 1086.
Minster Mill's wonderfully atmospheric spaces feature exposed Cotswold stonework, high ceilings, original wooden beams and magnificent views across the scenic hotel gardens and the peaceful Cotswold countryside beyond. Each one of Minster Mill's 38 guest rooms is dressed in a sleek, streamlined Scandi-style with contemporary fittings, mid-century furniture and sumptuous bathrooms.

I love these top trending wedding themes as suggested by mobile bar specialist Abi d'Aulerio of Madda Events in the February/March issue of Your Berks Bucks and Oxon Wedding.
Veganism - Believe it or not, there are actually a lot of spirits which are vegan. You need to watch out though, as some drink processes can include filtration with animal products? Depending on the level of veganism, you also need to watch out for the glue on the labels – this can be an animal by product!
We are attending a few vegan events in 2020 including Basingstoke's Vegan Food Fest which is an exciting new adventure for us and cant wait to be apart of the vegan community!
Non alcoholic beer - As people are looking for a healthier sustainable lifestyle, non alcoholic beer is becoming more and more popular. We attended the International Drinks Expo in London in 2019 and tried non alcoholic Effes which tastes exactly like the alcoholic version (minus the hang over)! Spending time in Munich this Christmas, there were 100s of non alcoholic beers in the supermarkets, which i'm sure is going to make its way over to the UK this year!
- Colour - A key wedding colour trend for 2020 is blue and our beautiful horsebox bar fits perfectly within the theme. With an oak wood finish and copper fittings, its the perfect addition to any DIY wedding for 2020.
