Silchester House

Holly Lane, Silchester, Reading Berkshire, RG7 2NA, Reading, Berkshire
Up to 92 guests
ilchester House is a truly spectacular home-from-home country house wedding venue on the border of Hampshire and Berkshire, between Reading and Basingstoke. It boasts a long tradition of hosting remarkable celebrations – it was among the very first private country houses to be licensed for civil marriages, almost twenty years ago, but the house’s appetite for a good party goes back further still. The stunning house and grounds now constitute a wonderful, exclusive use country house wedding venue in which you can host your own intimate, English country house, and garden, wedding.

Originally a private country estate, nestled in the heart of sleepy Silchester, Silchester House has a long tradition of involvement with village life, to the extent that any bride tying the knot at the venue on the same day as the village’s fireworks party, which takes place in the grounds, has the opportunity, in her capacity as ‘Lady of the House’ no less, to perform the ceremonial lighting of the bonfire. The stunning clockwork clock atop the clock tower, originally and intricately built by Thomas Hartley during his time living (and partying) at the house, is a key element of the village’s identity - itself no uniquely modern phenomenon, given the centrality of Silchester’s Roman ancestor, Calleva Atrebatum, to the trade routes across Roman Britain almost 2000 years ago. Calleva was a major crossroads and the current Music Room, which plays such a part in making Silchester House the wonderful country house wedding venue that it is today, sits directly above the old Roman Road from London to Bath.


Over the last twenty years, Silchester House has been tended to and cared for by the dedicated Bijou team. It has been transformed into a light, airy, welcoming country house wedding venue that is only available on an exclusive use basis for couples to host intimate, home-from-home wedding celebrations. It retains all the best of its history – the beautiful architecture, the rolling landscaped grounds with manicured lawns and sculpted yew hedges and the sense of historical home – and combines this romantic past with the very best in modern style – the acoustically perfect Music Room and, of course, the ultimate in wedding planning support from the Bijou team – to create a totally unique exclusive use country house wedding venue, hidden away in this quiet countryside village on the border of leafy Hampshire and bustling Berkshire.


We invite you to see this wonderful home for yourself and, while strolling through the Library, Drawing Room, Music Room and grounds, fizz in hand, to picture yourselves here, surrounded by your nearest and dearest, celebrating your wedding day in relaxed, stylish luxury. Alongside the venue itself, its 14 luxurious bedrooms, tennis court and swimming pool, couples will of course also enjoy the full wedding planning, wedding venue and wedding catering expertise that comes with booking an exclusive use country house wedding venue with Bijou.

Penton Park

£5150
Up to 180 guests
Way back in 2011 we hosted our first wedding – our very own! At the moment our family stood on their chairs waving white napkins and singing along to some superb singing waiters we knew the house loved to party just as much as we did.

In 2013 we formally opened our doors to weddings, events and parties, and we’ve been having a blast doing so ever since. So much so that updating our website has fallen woefully down the list of things to do!


So for now – please visit our facebook or instagram pages to get a great up to date view of what we’ve been up to recently.


Here are a few key points to know if we might be right for you:


A maximum of 20 events in any one year, so we really get to know you and that’s one of the best parts of sharing our home! Ceremony on site, or local church, either are fine by us. Want support in the organisation? No problem, we are here to help in any way we can.


Catering is via our preferred suppliers who are listed below, prices vary so pick up the phone give them a call and they’ll be fab at helping you plan all things food related.
