About Stowe House

When you think about the most special day of your life you think of the person who you are destined to be with, your guests, the dress, the food, the running order of the day, the list can go on. However, 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…

Stowe House is a 17th Century Ducal Palace and is unique in its grandeur and style. Holding no more than 15 weddings per year, the individuality and elegance of Stowe will provide the perfect setting you deserve on the most special day of your life.

We offer 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.

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.  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 House dates in parts from 1676. Following its extension, it became a popular aristocratic visiting place, culminating in the visit of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1845. Since becoming a boarding school in 1923, Stowe has continued to attract pupils from across the world to receive their education in one of England’s finest settings.

  • • Choice of our magnificent state rooms with views across the landscaped gardens to the Corinthian Arch in the distance.
  • • Limited amount of Weddings each year, therefore offering you the highest level of personal attention.

    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!
    Sally (& Simon). x

    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.
