Last update: June 2024

Stowe House is a wedding venue located in Buckinghamshire, England. This setting is an 18th Century Ducal Palace and is unique in its grandeur and style. Once you step inside Stowe House, you will not have to think about finding the perfect setting for your wedding—you will have found it.

Facilities and Capacity

Holding no more than 20 weddings per year, the individuality and elegance of Stowe House will provide the perfect setting you deserve on the most special day of your life. Most of the grounds were designed by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, and, to this day, they cement Stowe as the first and finest landscaped gardens in England. The team offers a choice of breath-taking State Rooms and can help you to optimise the different spaces you select. Ceremonies and wedding breakfasts can be held in the Music Room, exquisitely decorated by Vincenzo Valdrè, or The Marble Saloon inspired by the Pantheon in Room. The State Dining Room, whose natural lighting and intricate ceiling provide a stunning backdrop for a wedding breakfast, and the Temple Room acts as a great dancing and bar area for your evening party with plenty of room for moonwalks and slow dances alike. For more intimate celebrations, the recently restored Blue Room and its distinct Damask Silk walls is an idyllic space for smaller wedding parties. Feel the elegance of days gone by as you walk through the magnificent floor-to-ceiling doors onto our South Portico. You and your guests can enjoy drinks and canapés on the South Portico, overlooking the Octagon Lake, Corinthian Arch and rolling Buckinghamshire countryside as far the eye can see. Gather all your friends and family on the steps leading down from the South Portico for a fantastic photo opportunity with the entirety of the House behind you all for the perfect stately home wedding. Once on the grounds, you and your guests can enjoy garden games, relax and enjoy the view or make use of the access to the National Trust grounds for photos.

Our dream wedding venue!

Stowe House really is/was our dream wedding venue that exceeded all our expectations (even after seeing it multiple times!). One of the things we've been most complemented on after our big day was how stunning and unique our wedding venue was, which speaks volumes! The Marble Saloon in particular, where our ceremony took place, left everyone in awe.

Megan and Beth at Stowe House were exceptional, ensuring every detail was flawlessly executed. From the attentive event coordinators to the team as a whole, their professionalism added to the overall seamless experience.

Stowe House offers a unique blend of timeless sophistication and modern amenities, making it a perfect choice for couples on their wedding day. Highly recommended for those seeking an unforgettable and elegant wedding experience!

Just wonderful!

We had the best experience with the Stowe wedding team. Beth and the team were extremely helpful from start to finish. I so enjoyed wedding planning and especially working with Beth; her help was second to none and I couldn’t have done it all without her. I could not have chosen a better venue either. Stowe House is simply breathtaking and wonderful. All our friends and family say it was the best wedding they’ve been to! Wish I could do it all again!!

An incredible venue with excellent service.

Stowe House is an incredible wedding venue. The architecture is stunning throughout, and the views across the lawn to the lake are breathtaking. The layout of the venue's rooms works perfectly for weddings, and it could comfortably accommodate over 200 guests. The Event Manager who was our primary contact throughout was excellent. Very responsive, flexible and very easy to get on with. We had a few non-standard requests, and they always found a way to accommodate us. I would highly recommend Stowe House to anyone looking for a magical wedding, and a truly unforgettable day.

The most gorgeous wedding venue

We had the most magical wedding at Stowe House. From the moment we first spoke with Nikki it was a dream to work with her. They were so flexible and accommodating, and having someone as helpful as Nikki made wedding planning during COVID much easier than it could have been! The venue is absolutely gorgeous and we feel so lucky to have got married there. Thank you to Nikki and the whole team at Stowe!! :)

The most unbelievably magical venue

We had our wedding here in 2017. The staff were fantastic, professional and kind, helped organise everything with plenty of suggestions. The venue speaks for itself, absolutely amazing. There are only 10 or so weddings a year so is a bit more exclusive, your guests are unlikely to go to another wedding like this! Also a lot better value for money than every other venue of similar stature I looked at, also a lot cheaper than a lot worse venues! The most magical day at the most magical venue.

I was lucky enough to be a pupil at Stowe School while taking my A-levels and absolutely fell in love with the buildings and grounds. I introduced my Husband to Stowe on several occasions after we met at music college and we enjoyed some very happy experiences there. It was therefore the perfect place to have our Wedding and we decided to be married in the appropriate and amazingly beautiful Music Room.

The ambience of Stowe is unbeatable and it was so wonderful to have the place to ourselves and guests too. The staff were amazing, and helped to make every detail perfect. The food (as it always is at Stowe) was wonderful and every plate was cleared. We couldn't have asked for anything to go better.

I would recommend Stowe to anyone who admires stunning architecture and landscapes, and wants a wedding that can be personalized and made very special by the wonderful staff.

Thanks to all at Stowe!

We were so pleased . . . and our guest loved it!

Working with Zest was smooth, easy, professional and friendly. We felt completely confident that the day would be a success. Zest used their experience of event management to guide our decisions and make suggestions which we very much appreciated.
Many of our guests have commented about how impressed they were with the Zest staff during the day - they were discreet, smartly dressed, friendly, relaxed and had everything under control.
We would be delighted to offer a verbal reference for our experience with Zest.

What higher recommendation can we give . . .

Having returned from holiday after hosting the wedding celebrations, we feel we would like to thank you so much for helping make the day perfect. The service you have given us has been first class from beginning to end.

Your organisation of the whole event (marquee reception) from timings to delivery of meals was excellent. Each element was arranged to perfection from the welcome drinks and canapés through to the wedding breakfast and finishing with the hog roast. The quality of the food was superb. Many of the guests have told us that it was the best wedding they had ever attended. (Private Marquee reception July 2011).
