Lianne and Jason were married at BIjou's Silchester House in Berkshire last August.
We had an amazing day at Bijou venues, it was so nice that family and close friends who were staying in the house could be around as we were getting ready. It was just like being in our own home, with everyone so comfortable.
Unfortunately, it was raining in the morning on our day and we had planned to get married outside but the staff were so helpful and understanding when getting me to make the decision about moving the ceremony inside.
It’s such a beautiful house with so many beautiful rooms. Our wedding breakfast was amazing, the staff were so good with us, and put up with the rowdy friends and family as well as the older generation!
We booked an entertainment company called Spacebar productions for our reception and, again, the staff were very accommodating with everything they needed to put on their 'show.
My tips would be, don't worry about friends and family (excluding the husband to be!) seeing you getting ready and in your dress! It was so nice to have everyone pop in and out of the bridal suite and to have some friends with me to keep me calm. Definitely have the hog roast for the reception buffet and ask your photographer to take some shots at the back of the garden in the long grass!
