A Venue for all Seasons… Exclusively Yours

In the heart of the beautiful Chiltern Hills, this Grade I listed Country House Estate, a mere 40 minutes from Central London, is an idyllic setting for your wedding day.

You may wish to consider the 13th Century Parish Church of Great Hampden, St Mary Magdalene, situated within our grounds. We are also licensed for Civil Ceremonies.

Share your vows in front of family and friends in the unique setting of the Great Hall. Enjoy canapés and champagne on the manicured lawns and capture spectacular photographs in over 350 acres of privately owned parkland. 

Host a glorious wedding breakfast within the beautifully decorated Dining Room with chandeliers, ornate mirrors and carved fireplaces.

Celebrations continue with dancing in the Georgian Wing with full bar facilities. For the ultimate mix of a lawn wedding with Hampden House as the backdrop, from April to September we can erect a marquee within the picturesque gardens which can accommodate weddings with up to 250 people.

The Gardens


Hampden House is situated in over 350 acres of historic parkland and beech woods with far reaching views across the Misbourne Valley.

Fabulous opportunities for stunning wedding photographs await in our magnificent grounds. Enjoy Champagne or Pimms on the lawn and perhaps a game of croquet. The possibilities are endless...

We wanted to say how much we appreciated all of your efforts on the run up to the wedding and on the day itself. We had a perfect wedding and have had so many comments since about how fantastic the venue was and how much everyone enjoyed the day.

The support we had in planning the day at Hampden House was absolutely first class.
— Mr and Mrs T, May 2017

Civil Ceremony

The private and exclusive atmosphere of Hampden House offers the perfect location for a civil ceremony amongst family and friends. After the ceremony the gardens provide the perfect setting for a champagne and canapé reception, followed by a three course wedding breakfast held in the beautiful Dining Room for up to 100 seated guests.

At Hampden House we are happy to assist you with any special requirements that you may have. Should you wish to hold an intimate civil ceremony during the week followed by a small champagne reception, we would be happy to accommodate you.

Please speak to the Wedding Team if you would like to discuss your options further. Call us on 01494 489042 or email weddings@hampden.co.uk.

The team did an amazing job and we have had nothing but high praise from all of our guests. The house looked absolutely stunning and we could not have wished for a better venue to host our wedding.
— Mr and Mrs F, June 2017

Church Ceremony


For a Church wedding, the beautiful 13th Century Parish Church of St Mary Magdalene epitomises the traditional wedding, and is conveniently located along the Hampden House drive.

Please accept our heartfelt gratitude for all of your help in creating a seamless, beautiful, perfect day. We will always think back fondly on the whole experience from our first visit to the final moments before we left as husband and wife.
— Mr and Mrs M, April 2017
