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. We believe in true exclusivity for you and are often described as Buckinghamshire’s hidden gem.

We only take a limited number of weddings per year to ensure exclusivity, meaning our Wedding Team has the time and resources to dedicate to the planning and hosting of your wedding day.

For a church wedding, you may wish to consider the Church of St Mary Magdalene, a 13th Century Parish Church located within our grounds. We are also licensed for Civil Ceremonies in the unique setting of the Great Hall and Dining Room.

You and your guests can 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 for up to 104 seated guests within the beautifully ornate Dining Room and continue your celebrations into the night by dancing in the Georgian Wing with full bar facilities.

Marquees for up to 200 guests can be accommodated on our lawns by special arrangement. Please speak to the Wedding Team for venue hire pricing for a marquee wedding.

Seated guests in Dining Room - 104 guests

Evening reception total guests - 160 guests


We do not have overnight accommodation available at Hampden House. However we do recommend a number of local hotels who can accommodate you and your guests for your wedding night. Please speak to a member of the Wedding Team for further details.

Hampden House was just the perfect venue and I’m so happy with how everything turned out on the day. Thank you so much to everyone for helping my dream day run smoothly!!

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 Pimm’s on the lawn and perhaps a game of croquet or two. 

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 104 seated guests.

For civil ceremonies taking place prior to a drinks reception and wedding breakfast at the House then the price is £270 in addition to the Exclusively Yours or Bespoke hire costs.

Should you wish to continue your celebrations elsewhere after a civil ceremony held in our Great Hall or Dining Room then we can offer this to you with venue hire prices starting from £1100. 

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

Your Choice

In choosing Hampden House, you are not just booking a venue. We are committed to ensuring peace of mind so that you can live presently throughout your engagement. We will be there at every stage to ensure that your day runs smoothly. With our experience in making dreams come true, our Wedding Team will listen and help translate your own vision into reality whilst offering friendly support and advice.

We are delighted to offer two styles of weddings, with each one offering exclusive use of the venue.

The Exclusively Yours options, designed to assist the busy couple, cover all important elements of the day such as venue hire, daytime food and drink, table flower arrangements, table stationery and evening disco.

This all-inclusive basis helps to ease the stresses of planning a wedding whilst still offering you the opportunity to influence the style of your special day with your food, stationery and flower choices.

Prices for our ‘Exclusively Yours’ packages start from £160 per head and are based on a minimum of 80 adult guests. Please see our brochure for more specific details of our ‘Exclusively Yours’ options and contact the Wedding Team for our full wedding breakfast menu.

Example cost: 80 guests at Option 1 £160 each = £12,800

The Bespoke Wedding option enables couples to take full control of all arrangements for their day. Ideal for couples who have lots of imagination and who want to be more involved in the planning and organisation aspects of the day. This includes venue hire and the option to pay corkage for your own wine and champagne for the drinks reception and wedding breakfast.

By choosing our Bespoke option we will work closely with you and our carefully selected partners to produce an individual wedding celebration that is tailor-made for you.

Prices for our ‘Bespoke’ option start from £4950. Please see our brochure for Bespoke wedding prices as these change on a seasonal basis.

Each choice offers exceptional levels of support and expertise from the in-house Hampden Wedding Team.

The organisation, support, staff, wedding breakfast, implementation and experience were all exemplary; we had nothing to worry about and we had a lovely time. The house and surrounds are beautiful and the space available within the house is perfect for the number of guests. Everybody is still beaming and talking about the wonderful day.
— Mr and Mrs B, September 2017
