Missenden Abbey has been lovingly transformed with its contemporary feel and unique stained-glass windows. The main house has so much exquisite architectural detail; it has its own natural beauty.
Standing on our decorative staircase overlooking your guests is an unforgettable experience; from the moment you enter the Abbey, you feel the romanticism of the period of the house.
As you enter the driveway, enjoy the splendour of a 12th century medieval Abbey exterior with beautifully tended gardens. The main house and gardens are exclusively yours for the day.
After a devastating fire in 1985, Missenden Abbey was lovingly recreated and restored to its former glory with the addition of new architectural design; it perfectly blends history with today’s contemporary wedding celebrations.
Missenden Abbey is set amidst 10 acres of picturesque grounds in the heart of the Chilterns. With a stunning summerhouse, pond and a 500 year old Cedar tree, Missenden Abbey is the perfect place for photo opportunities. Picture yourself walking towards your guests for your confetti shot, while breathing in the beauty of our lovingly manicured lawns.
Licensed ceremonies take place in our Garden Room, which holds up to 100 guests. The bridal party will make their grand entrance down the stunning staircase into the Garden Room, which features contemporary stained-glass windows. For any larger ceremonies, the Library can be used as an overflow to accommodate an additional 30 guests maximum.
Wedding celebrations continue after the ceremony with your drink’s reception in either our picturesque grounds, or in bad weather, across the Library, Garden Room and Bar.
The wedding breakfast can be held in our adjoining dining rooms with vaulted ceilings and stained-glass windows, which in total can hold up to 115 people. Or perhaps you would prefer our seasonal marquee with a starlight canopy which can hold up to 150 people.
Our kitchen team pride themselves in producing delicious seasonal menus, utilising the abundance of home-grown and locally sourced produce, and our Head Chef will happily meet with you in the planning stages to discuss your menu choices for your wedding breakfast.
Once the formalities of speeches and toasts are complete, guests are invited to retire from the dining rooms to begin the evening celebrations with the entertainment of your choice.
Memorable weddings happen at Missenden Abbey - let us be your wedding venue partner for an unforgettable day.
