Silchester House is one of six exclusive romantic venues owned by Bijou. This beautiful Grade II Victorian country house venue was fully restored in the late 1990s and is available for exclusive wedding hire throughout the year.

Made to feel like royalty
Venue Service

By Gemma & Peter, on 20 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2018

Wow, what can we say, Suzi and her team made our wedding day utterly perfect! We knew the moment we looked around Silchester House, this would be our venue. We booked almost immediately and from day one there was nothing too much the team could do for us. Our wedding day was so perfect and everything flowed just as we planned. We and our guests were made to feel like royalty throughout our day and we had so many comments on the day from guests about how attentive, friendly and helpful the staff were. Our MC Dean helped the day run smoothly and made us both feel totally relaxed, he was amazing and even helped comfort a nervous best man before his speech. Its so hard to find the right words to explain how amazing Silchester House is and the team. Honestly, you will all be remembered fondly.

We wish it could have lasted longer!

It's been almost 2 months since our wedding, and almost back to reality now. I just wanted to say a big thank you. We had an absolutely amazing day, and really didn't have to think about anything other than enjoying ourselves. We only wish it could've lasted longer!!

Wedding dreams came true at Silchester House
Venue Service

By Linda and Robin, on 12 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2017

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 you're 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 daughter's 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 daughters 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.
