Beautiful Christmas wedding

We had the most magical day and can't thank the staff enough. We had many compliments on the food, service, staff and beauty of the venue. Laura made us feel supported throughout wedding planning and went above and beyond to meet our needs. The pizza pasta van in the evening topped the day off!

Thank you everyone!

Excellent service, highly recommend

Great experience getting married at Missenden Abbey! All staff were friendly and accommodating, food was great quality and the coordinator Laura was brilliant throughout the day. Very pleased with the grounds and environment.

The only downside was the DJ, who got our names wrong and in general wouldn鈥檛 be someone who we would have hired.

Wonderful experience for all the families

Missenden Abbey was the perfect venue for our wedding day. Laura takes the weight off your shoulders & couldn鈥檛 do enough to satisfy our every need. Everything was taken care of. The day felt perfect in every way. From the ceremony to the wedding breakfast. Kids & adults all enjoyed the Abbey鈥檚 wonderful atmosphere as we danced away the evening

Brilliant venue

We got married at MA in June, and can't recommend them highly enough. From the moment we booked, a year and a half before our wedding, they answered all our various queries quickly and efficiently. They accommodated all our various needs, including last minute room changes, and supplier requests. Our wedding coordinator had to take emergency leave the week of our wedding, and she was quickly replaced with another fantastic staff member who made all the final touches go smoothly. MA is quite simply a stunningly beautiful venue to get married, and the value provided by the staff, high quality food, included DJ, and the venue and grounds themselves is simply a great find.

Perfect Wedding

I just wanted to say how amazing our Wedding day was. Laura, the Abbeys Wedding Coordinator, was the best & it felt like there was nothing she wouldn鈥檛 do for us, she made our day run so smoothly. The venue is stunning with its stain glass windows & pretty stair case & the grounds are kept immaculately. All the staff were so friendly. The food was very tasty & were really generous portions. All the guests that stayed said how lovely their rooms were, newly decorated & clean. It鈥檚 the perfect Wedding Venue!!

Wonderful Wedding at Missenden Abbey

We had the most amazing wedding at Missenden Abbey in September. Natasha and her team worked tirelessly to ensure that we had the perfect day. And we did. The venue is stunning, and has some beautiful spots for photos. The food was fabulous - and this comes from a bit of a foodie - it could not be faulted. We could not have been happier with the service we received. The Events / F&B team were so friendly and attentive and just couldn't do enough for us. The little gifts left in the room were just a fabulous little touch after such a magical day. We will always hold Missenden Abbey very close to our hearts and have already been in for a delicious Sunday roast since our wedding! We really couldn't recommend this venue or team, highly enough.

Brilliant service in the lead up and on the day but poor after care

Couldn't fault the service that we received from the moment we booked the wedding to the actual day itself. Amazing venue and food.
Unfortunately our personalised cake topper went missing sometime during the evening after we cut our cake, and when we asked about it the next morning nobody seemed to know anything about it.
We even emailed a few days later to enquire if it had turned up, but never got a reply!

Wonderful Venue

Everything came together so perfectly for our wedding day. Missenden Abbey has beautiful grounds outside and plenty of space inside so with rain and sunshine we were well covered. We were free to set out garden games that were a big hit. The bridal prep room was great for getting ready and the make up artists complimented its space and lighting as well. We couldn't have imagined a better day!

Our perfect day at Missenden Abbey

We were lucky enough to get married at this beautiful venue on the 22.10.22. from the first enquiry to the day itself we couldn't have asked for a better team. A special shout out has to go to Natasha whom we started our wedding planning journey with and then Annabel who ended up taking over and being the best coordinator. She was warm, helpful and put us at ease. She dealt with my endless emails and truly is an asset to Missenden. No task was too big or too late she made us calm on the day and she's always smiling! Everyone said they've never gone to a wedding where it's all on time and seamless and that's down to the amazing staff.

We opted for the gold package and was not disappointed, food, drinks and the DJ were all incredible. Everyone has commented about how amazing it all was. Again a special shout out to Darren the most amazing DJ he had everyone on the dance floor all night!

We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful and yet not overpriced venue. The staff were all professional and warm, our day was pure perfection and the best day of our lives so far. We can't thank you enough !

Costly experience during COVID-19

We were very excited to have our wedding booked during July. Unfortunately we needed to cancel due to the current pandemic as Missenden were not able to offer us the package we booked due to government restrictions. We were only offered 50% refund of our deposit. Missenden claimed this was for 'services recieved' and refused to offer us a breakdown of this. The only services we had received were one phone call and a few emails. Very disappointed and frustrated. Be wary booking whilst the pandemic is still active as they will not return your money!

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 canap茅s 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
