Within Bracknell Forest, you have a choice of our register office venue, the Syrett Suite, or one of our seven approved venues.
The Syrett Suite
Set within the beautiful Victorian Mansion, Easthampstead Park, our Syrett Suite is the ideal venue for your ceremony. Accessed by a half mile long tree-lined drive, the Mansion which was built in 1864, is a listed building, sympathetically adapted to allow full disabled access.
The Syrett ceremonial room comfortably seats 56 people, but is equally suitable for a much smaller group. Decorated and furnished to blend with the magnificent Jacobean style building, the room has been finished with several silk flower arrangements, chair back arrangements and large planters with lush foliage. The room has an induction loop should any guests require this facility.
The Syrett Small Room
Should you wish to have a smaller, more intimate ceremony, the Syrett Small Room seats up to 6 guests. Please ensure you book the correct room. Please note that we cannot hold ceremonies in the small room on Saturday afternoon, Sunday or Bank Holiday.
Both rooms have a compact disc player, which will play instrumental pieces whilst your guests assemble, and during the signing of the register.
We have two dedicated areas within Easthampstead Park Conference Centre, a natural grass area a very short walk from the suite, or a hard standing area with a bench and planters which is immediately outside the Syrett Suite that can be used for photographs. You are very welcome to use these gardens areas before or after your ceremony.
Please note that photographs can only be taken in these designated areas and cannot be taken at the front of the main building, on the lawns at the rear of the main building or on the driveway leading up to Easthampstead Park Conference Centre.
