Shaw House - West Berkshire Register Office

Our rooms are located at Shaw House, a 16th century building with an abundance of character and set in beautiful grounds.  We have three rooms available.

Register Office

Our Register Office is for just the two of you, plus your two witnesses and suits people who want a small, personal ceremony.  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 our Wedding Packages, for which our Register Office is ideal.  In this room our 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. 

Ceremony Room

Our 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. 

Ceremony Room

The Great Hall

The Great Hall was licensed in 2023 and is a charming room which benefits from a longer aisle and capacity for up to 100 guests.  Again, we will tailor your extended ceremony to befit your preferences and couples choosing this room will also have the option of booking a drinks reception,  to follow immediately afterwards.  The room is available on Saturdays at 3pm* and is the perfect choice for couples wanting a larger gathering.

The Great Hall


Once you have booked your wedding we will send you an information pack, which covers everything you will need to know about your special day and includes a checklist of options and preferences for you to complete. If required, our registration team can talk you through your options and answer any questions you may have. 

*or by special arrangement with the Superintendent Registrar
