    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!

    Missenden Abbey's reply:

    Hi Sarah, thank you for taking time to review your experience with Missenden Abbey.

    From our understanding there were 2 factors in your decision to cancel your wedding, one being your partner having to potentially have his leg in plaster, the other the more obvious issue of the lockdown. We, at all times recommended you postponed your date at no cost, and it was our understanding that this was your intention. The refund offered of 50% of your deposit (not the full price of the wedding) covers us as a business for any services already consumed.

    I understand your correspondence with our team to always have been professional and considerate and perhaps the experience you refer to is more related to the pandemic than the service you received from Missenden Abbey.

    We wish you all the luck and happiness for your future together.

    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

    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!

    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.

    We wanted to send a quick not of thanks

    Hi Natasha,

    I hope all is well.

    We wanted to send a quick note of thanks to you and the team. Despite the stress the night before and early morning, we both had the most amazing day. Everything looked perfect and exactly how we (Emily), imagined.

    The day ran really smoothly and the food was also amazing. Several guests had said it was one of the best weddings they'd been to and yourself and the team were an integral part of that.

    You asked for our florists contact information, so please see below. As you can imagine we spoke to several florists (including the one on your website) and felt most comfortable with Charlotte and we weren't disappointed!

    Thanks again for all the help and support,

    Jamie and Emily

    We just wanted to say thank you

    Hi Natasha,
    As father of the groom, I just wanted to write to you and thank you and your team for giving the family a delightful day on Friday. I am only sorry that I never found you on the day which says to me, just how well managed the whole day was by you and the staff you had on hand. You were there ...but not there ...if you know what I mean......in the nicest possible way!

    The feedback I have had from all quarters has been so supportive and full of praise for the venue and staff who were a credit to you. Attentive in a discreet way but all smiles and what a difference that makes.

    Thank you for all your had work in helping give James and Kerri a day to treasure.

    Best

    Chris
