Welcome to Silchester House – Berkshire’s intimate wedding venue available for summer wedding parties or cosy winter nuptials.
If you’re considering a country house wedding venue in Berkshire, Silchester House could be the ultimate venue for you!
Nestled in the Berkshire countryside, Silchester House is an exclusive use wedding venue with everything you desire in order to host the perfect wedding celebration. The house, which was originally built in the 17th century, has been tastefully decorated, the grounds are exquisite and the service that you’ll receive from the Bijou staff will be outstanding – from your initial enquiry through to your post-wedding breakfast and departure as a married couple.
Silchester House can cater for all of your wedding day requirements, including the guest list considerations! Whether you’re planning a small wedding in Berkshire, an outdoor wedding or an average sized wedding followed by a larger house-party style celebration, Silchester House can accommodate your preference.
Planning a Small Wedding at Silchester House
If you’re planning a wedding for up to 80 guests then The Music Room at Silchester House is something you need to see. Say ‘I do’ amongst your close friends and relatives, before celebrating with Champagne or cocktails around the house or on the lawn if you’re getting married during the summer months. Meanwhile, the Bijou team will transform The Music Room into the ultimate location for your wedding banquet and dancing in the evening. When it comes to decorating the venue, you decide what you want and our dedicated team will make it happen.
Outdoor Weddings at Silchester House
If you both love the outdoors and have always imagined tying the knot outside, then Silchester House also has an outdoor wedding ceremony licence, allowing you to say your nuptials al fresco. Decorate the pretty gazebo with florals to match your wedding theme, and just imagine the outcome of your incredible outdoor wedding photography. However, don’t worry if rain is forecast on the big day – the Bijou team will always have a wet weather back up plan to keep you all safe and dry.
Planning a Big House-Party Style Wedding
After your romantic nuptials and sumptuous wedding banquet, Silchester House can be transformed into the ultimate party-house. On top of your 80 day guests, there is the option to invite a further 100 members of your friends and family to celebrate with you at Silchester. Dance the night away with a band or Bijou's in-house DJ, or enjoy signature cocktails by the bar as you celebrate throughout the evening. Plus, with 14 beautifully appointed bedrooms, there’s room to have your nearest and dearest stay the night. A delicious breakfast prepared once again by our expert team of chefs will conclude your wonderful wedding experience before you depart Silchester House as a married couple.
Intimate Wedding Celebrations at Silchester House
If the thought of hosting a wedding for up to 80 guests still sounds like too many for you as a couple, then Silchester House can also accommodate tiny wedding parties too! The house would still be offered to you on an exclusive use basis along with our experienced staff and team of chefs – so you wouldn’t need to worry about a thing. We don’t operate like a hotel so the house would belong to you and your very small party for a minimum of 24 hours as you celebrate your marriage with your very close friends and family.
Weddings at Silchester House During the Winter Months
If you’re planning a winter wedding then Silchester House could be ideal. Roaring fires in The Hall, The Library, The Dining Room, The Drawing Room and The Music Room could set the seasonal tone for your winter wedding at Silchester House perfectly. Decorate the house with festive touches throughout and when it comes to your wedding banquet, a warming winter menu can be carefully prepared by Bijou’s expert team of chefs.
