- An enchanting vintage setting for your wedding! Set in the heart of beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside, we can host civil ceremonies and receptions in our stunning glass-roofed venue, which forms an impressive backdrop for any wedding. The 25-acre site offers endless photographic opportunities. We can cater for up to 150 guests for a sit down meal, and we have a large, separate dance floor for the celebrations afterwards! You can even arrive at your wedding by steam train! Set in the beautiful village of Quainton, our stunning glass-roofed railway building was formerly the old Oxford railway station building, Rewley Road, which was designed by Sir Joseph Paxton who also designed Crystal Palace. Dismantled and rebuilt at our heritage site in Quainton, it makes an impressive backdrop to any wedding, vintage or otherwise. We are also licensed for civil weddings so you can hold your wedding ceremony here if you choose. For smaller weddings our Oxford Room can seat 20-30 for a more cosy feel.

We love all our weddings! It's such a happy, chilled out place to get married, everyone always seems so relaxed.
What’s your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Enjoy every moment - even in the run up - organising your wedding should be fun too!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Our venue is a showcase for bunting! We love bunting and it looks amazing when there are lines and lines of it donning our beautiful glass roof. My favourite was when one couple chose colourful ribbon, instead of the usual flag bunting!
