Weddings & Parties


Planning a wedding?

As we are well aware there is a lot of planning that goes in your big day. Let 1st Direct remove some of that hassle for you. Why not when you send the invites out add 1st Direct to your list of transport providers, by all means add 07590 722 953 but why not add the email address to, a lot of people now like to book and get confirmation by email, add as well.

Please do remember that West Berkshire is a very popular area to get married and some weekend it’s not unusual to have 4 or 5 big wedding to arrange transport for :- Don’t be disappointed please ask your guests to book early.



As well as thinking about getting your guests to and from your reception, don’t fall into the trap of forgetting yourselves. It may sound a silly comment to make but at least once a month we get a panicked call from a Bride or Groom saying they’ve forgotten themselves.



Here in West Berkshire we have some beautiful venues for you to consider.


Beautiful Wedding Venue in Combe, Berkshire



Combe Manor Barn is a country house wedding venue in Berkshire which delights all who come here. We prefer to limit the amount of weddings we hold here so that each couple has exclusive use of the venue in the days leading up to their wedding to make their preparations perfect. Each event is individually tailored to the personal requirements of the bride and groom. The barns can be decorated to particular specifications, the food can be chosen to reflect the taste of each couple and the whole day can be organised according to everyone’s wishes. We expect every wedding that is celebrated here to be unique, and our own personal efforts are geared to this end.


Templars Weddings




Templars Weddings have been holding weddings on the Parry family farm in Berkshire for the last 15 years. As our portfolio of wonderful venues grows, we pride ourselves on ensuring each location is individually matched to your special occasion

The unusual venues; glade, meadow, garden or barn, give the perfect wedding reception atmosphere. There is no set party plan and each venue comes with a variety of options for seating plans and consideration is given to every aspect of the event planning process. For example, dance floors can be positioned apart from the main area allowing livelier guests to dance the night away, while those who choose to chat in peace, may do so comfortably with background music. Most venues easily seat up to 150 people and with the addition of a marquee, they are able to accommodate larger numbers if necessary. The venues and barns may be arranged to allow pre-dinner drinks to be held outside in the evening sun.
