We added Harry Potter green screen backgrounds and a couple of their honeymoon location as they requested. We also added our karaoke function so everyone was ‘singing’ along to Summer Nights from Grease all night long as well as taking fabulous photos.

Marlston House is an exquisite listed country house prep school set in sixty acres of beautiful gardens and parkland in Berkshire.  Marlston House is available as a unique wedding venue during the school half terms and holidays.

Marlston is a hamlet in the English county of Berkshire, within the civil parish of Bucklebury.

The settlement lies south of the M4 motorway and is located approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) north-east of  Thatcham.

The place-name Marlston is first attested as Marteleston in 1242, and means “Martel’s town or manor”. Galfridus Martel held the manor in 1242; Martel is a French nickname meaning “hammer”, from the Old French martel (modern French marteau).

World War !! RAF flying ace Group Captain Sir Douglas Bader and his wife settled in the village after the war.

The area is the location of Brockhurst and Marlston House School, a large preparatory school.

Brockhurst (boys) and Marlston House (girls) are independent and boarding twin schools, sharing the same estate. In 2012 they had 323 pupils from the ages three to thirteen.

Brockhurst was founded in 1884 as a boys’ boarding prep school at Church Stretton in Shropshire then moved to Broughton in Shropshire in 1942 and then Marlston in 1945, becoming co-educational in 1995. The various facilities provided by the school include 21 acres of games fields, a sports hall, a swimming pool, tennis courts, arts and design studios, IT suite and equestrian school. In addition, a chateau in Gascony, south-west France, where the pupils practise French.

In 2009, Country Life Magazone included Brockhurst and Marlston House School among the best countryside preparatory schools of Great Britain.
