Absolutely Beautiful
‘My husband and I had our wedding at Missenden Abbey in August 2019 and would recommend it to everyone. The venue is absolutely beautiful and as soon as you make your way down the drive, you can see it’s well kept gardens no matter what time of year it is. The inside of the Abbey has a modern feel yet still has some of its historic characteristics which is a reminder of it’s interesting past. The staff are just as beautiful as the venue and were so supportive and helpful throughout the whole planning process. One of the ways we chose our suppliers was by the relationship we built with them and how efficient they were. We felt so comfortable emailing and talking to the staff there, personally and over the phone, even with the most small and minor queries which were always answered promptly and with a ‘nothing is a problem’ attitude. Our wedding coordinator, Kathy, was a superstar not only through the planning process but throughout the whole day and even afterwards. Our day was so well organised and all of our guests, and ourselves, were taken care of by all of the staff. Not only were the staff fantastic, but compared to other venues, we felt that Missenden Abbey’s wedding packages were better value for money and with more included. From the use of their beautiful marquee to the inclusion of their brilliant resident DJ, we had everything we had wanted and within our budget. We cannot thank Missenden Abbey enough for everything that they have done for us over the 2 years of planning and highly recommend them for any type of event.’

May Wedding 2019
I could not fault Missenden Abbey which was the perfect venue for my daughter’s wedding on 31st May 19. I booked the wedding at short notice and was amazed how everything turned out despite the tight timelines. This would not have been such a success without the great attitude of the staff and wedding planners, in particular Natasha who was absolutely fantastic. She catered for our needs responded to our requests and suggested great ideas to ensure the day was faultless. Thank you so much Missenden Abbey and staff for ensuring the wedding guests had a fantastic time. Memories of a lifetime! Thank you so much! If anyone is thinking of Missenden Abbey as their wedding venue, I highly recommend it.

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

A special day
Thank you so much for making our wedding day everything we hoped for and more! The day ran so smoothly, no ask was too much (even my OCD instruction manual was met with smiles), we really couldn't have asked for a lovelier, more attentive and accommodating bunch! You're all stars and made the whole day even more special for us and all our guests!
From the bottom of our hearts thank you to you all! Our wedding day will always be such a happy memory for us, and we have you to thank for being part of that!
