After your romantic wedding ceremony, whether it be in the Music Room, outside on the lawn or at a local church, celebrate your wedding reception in style amidst our luxurious country house setting in Berkshire. Select from a multitude of delicious canapés, cocktails or bubbly, and relax and enjoy life as a married couple before moving back to the Music Room for your intimate wedding breakfast.
Added by Thomas Hartley with the express purposes of entertaining, the Music Room is one of the many rooms you can utilise on your wedding day. Wooden panels lit by a centrepiece chandelier make it perfect for a beautiful wedding banquet for up to 80 day time guests. Large bay windows bathe the room in natural light and allow you to look out on the terrace and country house gardens as you dine and your guests toast your health, happiness and future life together.
Silchester House, as a member of the Bijou Wedding Venues family, benefits from the experience of Bijou’s in-house brigade of banqueting chefs. Banqueting catering is a very specialist branch of the hospitality industry and requires specific processes and practices. The Bijou Team of Chefs are full-time specialists who only work in our banqueting kitchens. Our menus and kitchens are designed with banqueting in mind and in the knowledge that each dish needs to be served in large numbers, at top quality, in very short spaces of time. Of course we also maintain relationships with our suppliers in order to serve what we serve at the best possible price for your country house wedding reception.
Introduce your evening wedding reception party by having our DJ turn the Music Room into a dance floor. The Library will be where your evening wedding reception guests mingle, The Drawing Room is the ultimate space for guest to sit and relax, and the dining room will host any evening buffet you choose, meaning there’s space at Silchester House for everyone and everything. Our reception rooms, resplendent in their authentic décor, original fireplaces and comfortable luxurious furnishings provide the perfect environment for conversation and celebration.
Subject to agreement from and approval by the relevant local authorities, fireworks are permitted at Silchester House.
Due to its country location in the centre of a village, we are unable to extend the licence at Silchester House. Once non-resident guests have departed the wedding venue, however, you are free to open the bar back up for nightcaps for those staying overnight.
