Weddings At Woburn Abbey

Woburn Abbey has been home to the Dukes of Bedford for nearly 400 years. Set in the 3,000 acre deer park, the Woburn Estate offers a stunning backdrop for weddings all year round.

The Sculpture Gallery, which can host your civil ceremony as well as your reception, has its own private gardens overlooking the Camellia Lake and can accommodate parties of up to 250 guests. The private gardens, along with the Camellia House in inclement weather, provide the perfect setting for your wedding photography.
