Located in the Bedfordshire countryside, Woburn Abbey has been home to the Earls and Dukes of Bedford for nearly 400 years. Today it is home to the 15th Duke of Bedford and his family. Woburn Abbey is set at the heart of a 3,000 acre deer park, with beautiful grounds created by the renowned landscape designer Humphrey Repton.
The Sculpture Gallery, in the grounds of Woburn Abbey was originally designed as an Orangery in the 18th century for the 5th Duke of Bedford.
The Sculpture Gallery offers a majestic and historical setting for weddings. It is decorated with key pieces from the collection of sculpture and antiquities, including at its centre a Roman Lante Vase, with impressive pieces by leading 19th-century British sculptors together with a copy of the famous Apollo Belvedere. The grand south facing windows look out over the private formal terrace, recently restored rose garden and lake, with distant views into the surrounding deer park.
The Sculpture Gallery offers an elegant backdrop for civil ceremonies and receptions, and can accommodate exclusive wedding parties of up to 250 guests. Two adjoining wood panelled rooms, The Lantern Room and The Long Harness Room, are available as additional reception areas.
This venue provides an unrivalled level of service and a quintessentially English country house backdrop to create those all-important special memories.
