Just wonderful!

We had the best experience with the Stowe wedding team. Beth and the team were extremely helpful from start to finish. I so enjoyed wedding planning and especially working with Beth; her help was second to none and I couldn’t have done it all without her. I could not have chosen a better venue either. Stowe House is simply breathtaking and wonderful. All our friends and family say it was the best wedding they’ve been to! Wish I could do it all again!!



The most gorgeous wedding venue

We had the most magical wedding at Stowe House. From the moment we first spoke with Nikki it was a dream to work with her. They were so flexible and accommodating, and having someone as helpful as Nikki made wedding planning during COVID much easier than it could have been! The venue is absolutely gorgeous and we feel so lucky to have got married there. Thank you to Nikki and the whole team at Stowe!! 🙂

One of the things we've been most complemented on after our big day was how stunning and unique our wedding venue was, which speaks volumes! The Marble Saloon in particular, where our ceremony took place, left everyone in awe. Megan and Beth at Stowe House were exceptional, ensuring every detail was flawlessly executed. From the attentive event coordinators to the team as a whole, their professionalism added to the overall seamless experience. Stowe House offers a unique blend of timeless sophistication and modern amenities, making it a perfect choice for couples on their wedding day.
