Set within 170 acres of magnificent conservation listed grounds, Wycombe Abbey provides the ultimate romantic exclusive wedding venue in Buckinghamshire. With its Grade II listed neo- gothic mansion, our unique venue is ideally located close to the Chilterns, less than a mile from the M40.
A wedding at Wycombe Abbey ensures exclusive use of the function rooms, which are licensed for civil wedding ceremonies. Originally home to Lord Carrington and his family, the rooms have hosted royalty and provide the perfect setting for your wedding reception.
The beautiful grounds, 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, sculptures and ice house.
We are licensed for civil wedding ceremonies in Buckinghamshire and can accommodate up to 100 guests in the elegant Fisher Library or a maximum of 50 in the intimate Cloister Panel Room set in the striking Grade II listed Daws Hill, crowning the estate. Beaconsfield Registration Service (tel. 01494 475092) will provide a Registrar for a ceremony at Wycombe Abbey. It is essential to contact the service as soon as you have a date for your event to confirm a booking with a registrar.
Our professional in-house catering team will provide an unforgettable silver service wedding breakfast with a range of tempting menus. The Big Hall within the Abbey can easily accommodate up to 130 guests, whilst Daws Hill Dining Room is able to accommodate between 65 and 120 guests, with up to 200 for the evening buffet. There is no corkage fee and you may supply your own wine for the initial reception drinks and the wedding breakfast, whilst guests can enjoy our licenced bar for the evening reception and dancing.
We offer a shorter wedding reception package, with exclusive use of the function rooms and gardens for up to four hours. This would allow for a civil ceremony followed by champagne and canapés, with tea and the cutting of the wedding cake. This option is available on Mondays to Thursdays, or as a late availability booking.
