Set within 170 acres of magnificent, conservation-listed grounds, Wycombe Abbey provides the ultimate romantic setting for your wedding day. With its Grade II listed gothic style mansion, this unique venue is ideally located close to the Chilterns in Buckinghamshire, less than a mile from the M40.
A wedding at Wycombe Abbey ensures exclusive use of the elegant function rooms, including Daws Hill. Originally home to Lord Carrington and his family, the function rooms have hosted royalty and provide the perfect wedding setting. The suite of stunning function rooms are licensed for civil wedding ceremonies and include the intimate wood panelled Cloister Panel Room and the majestic early nineteenth century Fisher Library set within the Abbey.
The beautiful grounds thought to be designed by Capability Brown, provide an oasis of calm and are the ideal backdrop for wedding photographs of your special day. The Abbey and its impressive landscape inspired artists such as William Turner and include romantic features such as the swan lake, chapel cloisters, the ice house and sculptures.
Our professional in-house catering team will provide an unforgettable silver service wedding breakfast with a range of tempting menus. The Dining Room is able to accommodate between 70 and 120 guests, whilst the traditional Big Hall can easily accommodate up to 130 guests, with up to 250 for the evening buffet. There is no corkage fee and you may supply your own wine for arrival drinks and the wedding breakfast, whilst guests can enjoy our licenced bar for the evening reception and dancing.

We had a fabulous day
Clare (Commercial Manager) was brilliant in helping to organise and arrange our day, coming up with suggestions and hints and tips for a number of things we had forgotten or not thought of. She was also there on the day to liaise with the Registrars, greet the guests and make sure we, the bride and groom, knew exactly what we were doing and were calm and collected. She was an enormous help and we can't thank her enough. We had a fabulous day, thank you Clare, Ryan (Exec Chef) and the team.Sent on 01/05/2019

Many thanks for such a very special day!
This was our second family wedding at Wycombe Abbey. The first had been superbly organised and we were confident the second would be likewise. The events staff were very helpful, giving confidence that all would be well. All the staff were flexible, patient and generous with their time prior to the day. The grand surroundings are in pristine condition. For a winter wedding it was ideal to flow from the chapel courtyard to Fisher Library. For our first daughter's wedding in springtime, we enjoyed the scenic environment of Daws Hill at the top of the estate, with its beautiful dining room for 100 guests. The catering team were very flexible and they understood the importance to us of choosing our own wine. Both in the final preparation and on the day, all staff were very efficient and helpful. In terms of food, the meat was cooked to perfection. A huge thanks for the wonderful day that you and the staff managed to create for us. The venue looked beautiful, the food was delicious and the service really smooth.Sent on 18/01/2019

We could not think of a better place to say I do
We were so lucky to be able to use this stunning venue. There are so many corners of the estate, and the main building, which provided us with different views, light and architecture. Our photographers were very happy! With the impressive entrance hall flowing seamlessly through to indoor and outdoor reception areas, as well as the Chapel courtyard, we were spoilt for choice of areas where our 120 guests could make use of the grounds. The catering team went above and beyond to create a menu that we were blown away by. The events team provided the logistics and organisational support which meant that our special day was filled with treasured memories and very little worry! We couldn’t think of a better place to have said ‘I do’!Sent on 12/12/2018
