Missenden Abbey
Missenden Abbey is a beautiful venue for a wedding. The Garden Room, where you have the ceremony, is so pretty with its stain glass window & stair case. The grounds are kept immaculately if you’re lucky enough with the British weather. You will have the venue exclusively for your wedding alone. And rooms are reserved for guests that would like to stay, making it the perfect venue for wedding + reception. Wedding Coordinator Laura Young is there to make your day run super smoothly.

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!
