We believe that for an incredibly special day you need an incredibly special venue. Ask anyone who has attended a wedding here and you will discover that Hill Place fits that description with ease. Our couples become a part of the family and we believe in offering them an exclusive, bespoke experience right from the first visit. As we only host one wedding a week, the house, grounds and staff are there for you and you alone; something we feel is of utmost importance.



Hill Place is a charming and welcoming house with bundles of character. It has always been a family home - most definitely not a corporate, corridor laden old house – and is furnished with family antiques and the odd bit of trivia! All five of our ground floor reception rooms are licensed and can accommodate a maximum of 60 guests so you can even choose where in the house you get married!




When it comes to the reception, the sky is literally the limit, with uninterrupted views to the Isle of Wight; you can enjoy the house, or take over the two acres of garden with a marquee for up to 180 guests with any kind of entertainment: Fairgrounds, music festivals and lawn games have all taken place at Hill Place. After being served by our exclusive catering partners, Smallpiece Catering you’ll know that however you decide to entertain them, your guests will be left talking about the wonderful day long after it has finished!




From our years of experience running events at Hill Place, we have handpicked a diverse collection of the very best local suppliers who are on hand to offer expert advice and help you create your perfect day. And if you need a contact we don’t have, we’ll happily ask those in the know for you. We would not dream of dictating your day to you – we’re here to make it what you want it to be and love nothing more than seeing each couple’s vision become a reality.

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.

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.
