A Romantic, Licensed, Exclusive Use Luxurious Country House Wedding Venue in Berkshire
Silchester House is licensed for civil wedding ceremonies both inside and out and offers a choice of versatile wedding celebration and entertaining spaces.
The Music Room, built to showcase former owner Thomas Hartley’s passion for orchestral music and thus boasting absolutely perfect acoustics, can seat up to 80 guests for a wedding ceremony; stunning country views across the lawn make this room even more delightful. This superb space is perfect for saying your ‘I dos’ and is equally impressive when transformed into a wedding banquet setting. The windows overlook the gardens, letting in plenty of light and reminding guests that they are surrounded by tranquil rolling British countryside.
Alternatively, if you plan on getting married during the late spring or summer months and the concept of tying the knot outside appeals, the gazebo outside the East Wing entrance is also licensed for wedding ceremonies.
The perfect example of a classic English arts and crafts country manor house with all of the charm and character you would expect, Silchester House feels a world away from busy nearby towns such as Basingstoke, Reading and London, which is only an hour away by car. Silchester House sits in its own expansive grounds with sculpted yew and manicured lawns, surrounded by beautiful Hampshire countryside. During the summer months the party-house wedding venue lends itself to a traditional English country house (and garden!) wedding celebration with focus on the delightful gardens.
The wedding venue is only available on an exclusive use basis for a full 24 hours, meaning that the home, the grounds, facilities and staff belong to you and only you for the duration of your wedding celebration. Hiring this country house wedding venue on an exclusive use basis guarantees that you’ll be the only party at the venue on the day of your wedding and that everyone at the venue on the day is there for you and only you. It’s a return to days of old, when splendid families enjoyed splendid celebrations in their splendid country homes – the wedding venue will be your perfect home for the duration of your perfect wedding celebration and, of course, the Bijou team will be behind the scenes, making sure it all goes more smoothly than you could possibly have dreamed.
