Dear Bijou Weddings, Just a quick note to say a massive thanks to the team at Botleys Mansion for the dedication and professionalism they showed us on our wedding day on 10thMarch this year. We had the most amazing day and look back on our day with the happiest of memories. Our wedding planner Aly was amazing from start to finish and a big shout out to Guy. We met him on our very first visit to Botleys Mansion and he was there for every one of our tours, meetings, tasting and on our wedding day. He was fantastic throughout, offering us high attention to detail and a smooth running of the day- even when the flower girls got stuck in jersey and ran in late!!

Dear Carol and the Bijou team. We had the most wonderful day and could not believe how glorious the weather was! All of my friends told me that as they were waiting for me to walk down the aisle the clouds parted, the sun shone through and a butterfly floated down the aisle just before we entered - remarkable! Barbara was really fantastic on the day and kept us so relaxed and organised - it was a pleasure to have her there guiding us through every moment of the day. We really loved every minute of the day and didn't want it to end!

We had an absolutely amazing day and are so grateful to everybody there as it all went so smoothly, professionally and thoughtfully. We particularly wanted to thank Sarah as she was awesome on the day – really really helpful and so many people commented to us about her. The venue itself is gorgeous and makes the whole day really special – lots of people say it’s the best venue they’ve been to. The food was delicious – from the canapés to the wedding breakfast, the bacon butties and the breakfast the next morning.

Firstly, we'd like to say a massive thank you for helping make our dreams come true. Our wedding day honestly felt like a fairytale. And this was helped by the stunning venue, delicious food and the unwavering organisation and friendliness of the Bijou team. When we were looking for a venue Cain Manor was our first visit. We had one other venue visit that day then didn't bother looking at any others, we already knew we wanted to get married at Cain Manor. As we have a one year old daughter we needed a venue that would help us with all the planning. Ann was super lovely, patient and professional throughout the whole planning process and the online system (although I'm not very techy) was easy to use and so thorough.On the day Anica and Georgia totally looked after us and with all my gittery excitement I felt like I was in safe hands! Their organisational skills were impeccable! We should also mention the lovely reception staff and we enjoyed watching their synchronised serving! When the evening manager took over, the day continued with a relaxed and fun vibe right through to the nightcap for the staying guests. Overall we were honestly so impressed with the organisation and professionalism of the team, delivered in an understated, non interfering way! The Bijou team really were a big part of why the day went so well.

I am not sure where to begin but I will start with all my daughter's wedding dreams came true on 7th July, 2017.  Maddie your support and guidance with all the planning made our life so simple with the addition of the electronic planner everything was so efficient and easy. All the lovely support staff on the day - you were amazing nothing was too much trouble and you delivered excellent customer service so a big thank you to you all. The Master of Ceremonies was fantastic, he was kind thoughtful and made sure everything went smoothly and no one missed out on the important moments. Thank you. Suzi - you were so extra special it was like having an extra family member for the day. Again nothing was too much trouble; kind, caring yet in full control and very efficient. For that I am so thankful as it allowed my husband and I to stop worrying and fully enjoy our daughters wedding day. We will never be able to thank you enough, you're a real star.Silchester House is truly a beautiful wedding venue, it felt like a family home for our daughter's wedding, the bedrooms are fantastic, the food and service spectacular and the service impeccable. Worth every penny. We all wished the day would go on forever. The Bride and Groom had an amazing day and it's down to Silchester House and its amazing team. Thank you so much.
