Sammy and Dean

It truly was as if our dreams had become a reality! From the very word go Natalie, our planner, was friendly and committed in helping us have our perfect day. I felt like a princess from the moment I arrived at Silchester House, right through to walking down the aisle, our wedding breakfast, our evening reception and finally saying goodbye the morning after. I could not have wished for anything more. All the staff on the day were polite, friendly and supportive, especially the lady who looked after me whilst I was getting ready. I was a bundle of nerves and she did everything she could to make me feel at ease. All our guests have said to us what a truly wonderful day they had and that the food was truly amazing! Overall Bijou Weddings and the staff at Silchester House provided us with the wedding of our dreams - it's as simple as that! I cannot put into words how grateful Dean and I are to the team for all they have done for us. The toastmaster was absolutely amazing!! He kept us both calm and informed through out the day.
