About Stowe House

Buckinghamshire, MK18 5EH

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.  

• • Over 750 acres of Grounds surrounding the House some of which designed by Lancelot Brown, ideal for unforgettable photos. • • 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. • • We allow external caterers or our Specialist Chefs on site are committed to delivering outstanding service and food. • • Asian and Marquee Weddings. • • Opportunity to be married in on site Chapel if attended the School.

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).
