The whole day honestly exceeded all of our expectations
Thank you so much for giving us the very best wedding day! When we first came to visit Missenden Abbey (in August 2018!) we were blown away and knew instantly it was the venue for us. Back then, we could not have imagined what was to come over the next three years, but we also could not have imagined how magnificent and supportive the team at Missenden Abbey would be. When we were first in contact with Laura, it was clear that nothing was too much trouble and that we were working with such a professional! Laura - throughout the whole planning process you have been truly incredible and we are so grateful to have worked with you on the planning. It really is such a shame that you couldn’t be with us for our wedding but we owe so much of the day to you and will always be thankful to you for all of your time and help over the past few years. To Natasha and the rest of the team on the day - thank you so much for everything you did for us! From our point of view, the day ran so smoothly from the moment we arrived at the Abbey. Everything was set up so beautifully and our meal was delicious. The whole day honestly exceeded all of our expectations. So many of our guests have commented on how amazing the day was and, to us, it really was perfect. “Thank you” will never be good enough to express how grateful we are to you both (and the whole team). We are so pleased to have chosen Missenden Abbey as our wedding venue and will forever be grateful for our day. We look forward to seeing you again in the future as I am sure we will visit Missenden Abbey plenty now that it holds such a special place in our hearts. With very best wishes and HUGE thanks!

The most perfect, magical, incredible wedding day
Well what can I say but a huge thank you to you and all the staff at Missenden Abbey for making it the most perfect, magical, incredible wedding day for Alice and Tom. We loved the day from start to finish. The Abbey looked beautiful in the sunshine not a cloud in the sky, we were so lucky with the weather😎. The drinks and canapés on the lawn was like having a private garden party. The wedding breakfast was really delicious, please pass on a huge thank you to the chef and all the staff. The evening buffet looked incredible and the way they displayed the cheese was perfect too. The disco was such fun and the dancefloor was full all evening. It only seems yesterday when we met you in January and managed to get the date in September secured for their wedding. Natasha, thank you so much for making it run so smoothly and for all your hard work from behind the scenes. You were the most amazing wedding coordinator😄 Louisa

Perfect from start to finish
The whole day was perfect from start to finish and that comes down to you being amazing. I felt so calm before, knowing you had everything in hand and you made me feel so confident before walking down the stairs. So we really cannot thank you enough!

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.
