Hi Ann, Thanks to you and your team for a brilliant day last week at Cain Manor, we had such a magical day, your team looked after us so well, and even the weather smiled on us :) (from the Melati Beach Resort, Koh Samui)

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.
