The Register Office for West Berkshire Council is located at Shaw House, we have three beautiful ceremony rooms within this beautiful 16th century building with an abundance of character and set in scenic grounds.

The Register Office is ideal for people who want a small, personal ceremony, it is a comfortable space for the two of you and your two witnesses. Or perhaps you have chosen to have a larger celebration elsewhere, at an alternative venue without the legalities. In such circumstances you may wish to take advantage of the Wedding Packages, for which the Register Office is ideal. This room is available on Wednesday mornings, in which the registrars will conduct a basic ceremony involving mainly the legalities, but you will have the opportunity to exchange rings, should you wish to do so.

Additionally, the larger Ceremony Room accommodates up to 46 guests and gives you the opportunity to have a more detailed ceremony, involving music, extended vows, readings and personal vows. This room is available on Fridays and Saturdays. Of course, how much or how little you choose to include is largely up to you.

If you are looking for an extra special experience then the Great Hall is the perfect option for larger gatherings, this is a charming room which benefits from a longer aisle and capacity for up to 100 guests. This room is offered at 3pm on a Saturday, subject to availability and other events in the House. This is the perfect choice for couples wanting a larger gathering and if you choose this room you will also have the option of booking a drinks reception to follow immediately afterwards.
