About Missenden Abbey

Set in the refined splendour of a former medieval Abbey, with 10 acres of spectacular grounds, this exclusive use venue is full of character and perfectly blends history with today’s contemporary wedding celebrations.

From grand ceremonies to intimate weddings, Missenden Abbey is the perfect setting for your wedding day. Licensed for civil ceremonies and civil partnerships, the main house is exclusively yours for the day. Ceremonies take place in the garden room, featuring a sweeping staircase and beautiful stained-glass windows that infuses the room with natural light, followed by canapés and champagne on the manicured lawns.

Wedding celebrations continue with the wedding breakfast taking place in either the dining rooms with high vaulted ceilings or the seasonal marquee with its starlight canopy and our talented chefs will prepare the most delicious dishes using the finest, locally sourced ingredients.

The Buckinghamshire venue is set against the impressive backdrop of the Chiltern Hills and our south lawn is enriched with many features, making it perfect for capturing those intimate wedding photos, including a magnificent 400 year old Cedar tree and a flint and brick 18th century summer house that hides away in our woodland.

When the night of celebrations draws to a close, you can retire to the spacious honeymoon suite, while your guests can stay in one of our many bedrooms for a great night’s sleep. Our honeymoon suite is offered with compliments on the night of your wedding.

Each wedding is different, and our wedding co-ordinators will be on hand to help you every step of the way. All you need to do is relax and devote yourself to enjoying the wedding of your dreams.
