Perfect Winter Wedding Venue - Dec 2022
From the planning stages right through to the day of the wedding, Missenden Abbey, and its team, were simply perfect. The Abbey looked absolutely stunning, lit up with festive lights and Christmas decor, which was the perfect backdrop for a December wedding. The Garden Room, where our ceremony was held, has an amazing double staircase that makes for a grand entrance. We had exclusive use of the Abbey, which made us feel very special and enabled us to spread everything out. The food was simply amazing. We had so many compliments from our guests saying that it was the best wedding meal they had ever had - and i quite agree! We stayed overnight in the suite which was beautifully decorated and spacious. A number of our guests also stayed which was an added bonus - being able to hold the ceremony, reception, accommodation AND breakfast the next day with our guests at one venue was truly fantastic. Waking up on Christmas eve and having breakfast with everyone after the wedding was wonderful - and delicious! The staff were incredibly helpful and flexible and did their best to cater to our every need. A special thanks to our wedding co-ordinator Natasha who gave us the 5* treatment! Highly recommend getting married at Missenden Abbey - you'll have the best day of your life!

Amazing!
We had our Wedding at Missenden Abbey early December. When booking a winter wedding we was aware that we needed to book a venue that could accommodate all weathers for photos etc. The Abbey itself is a stunning venue both inside and out so we was confident that whatever the weather the Abbey was going to be a perfect backdrop. Luckily our day was dry and sunny so we was able to take advantage of the Abbey’s beautiful grounds for pictures. We had guests arrive from overseas and The Abbey was able to accommodate their extend stay, requirements and needs to make them all comfortable. Ultimately this stunning venue wouldn’t be complete without its wonderful staff. From start to finish the Abbeys staff were fantastic! They all went above a beyond to help, guide and support us through the planning of our day. We had some unusual requests which they were more than happy to accommodate and work round. On the day itself we could relax knowing everything was in safe hands and their attention to detail was outstanding! Our guests all commented on what a wonderful day they had, how delicious the food was and what a beautiful setting for our wedding. We cannot thank Missenden Abbey enough for making our day perfect for both us and our guests x x

Thanks for making our daughters wedding so perfect
We would just like to say thank you to all of you, for making our daughter's wedding so perfect. Everything ran so smoothly, from setting up of the tables for us, the ceremony and the service throughout the meal and the wonderful food. So if you could thank all the staff that were involved, we would be most grateful.

Everything we could have hoped for and more
Missenden Abbey is simply the perfect wedding venue. The building and its surroundings are beautiful. The staff are friendly and committed to making a special day exactly that. Laura (wedding coordinator) must be singled out for special praise. From the moment we made our initial enquiry until we left the venue at the end of the wedding we felt that everything was handled and under control. Following our wedding many of our guests have remarked similarly. I would recommend Missenden Abbey to any couples.

We couldn’t have ask for anything more!
What was not to love? Nothing, absolutely nothing! On our first visit we knew Missenden Abbey was for us. It’s such a beautiful building , in stunning grounds and we were very taken with all the staff who were polite, efficient, friendly and professional. From start to finish, our wedding coordinator, Natasha was amazing. As the bride, she helped me through my indecisions when it came to flowers and decor and with my nerves on the day. Who knew that even when you’ve been with someone for nearly 10 years you’d still be nervous! Well Natasha knew and she helped me every step of the way. We wanted to ensure our guests were well fed and with a 3 course wedding breakfast and evening buffet we were hoping they would be. We, and everyone else, were not disappointed. The food was amazing! We were so thrilled when chef was able to tweak the starter to suit our needs. It was all wonderful! Cooked to perfection, served efficiently, the wine flowed and everyone was very happy. On the day, everything was as it should be and for us it was perfect! We’ve had lots of wonderful comments from our family and friends that it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We had one particular wedding, where the bride's father and grandfather owned a steam engine which they brought down to the Abbey and used it for the couples wedding photos. The bride also wore her mother's wedding dress and combined with the history of her father's steam engine this made the wedding extra special and unique.
