Hampden House Weddings

Ellie Press is thrilled to be a preferred supplier for Hampden House, and in fact 3 of the Bucks Wedding Team are now preferred suppliers! Therefore I thought I would write a post all about Hampden House and why it is so special….

Hampden House is located in the beautiful chilterns (a few miles from the Prime Minister’s country retreat at Chequers), and dates back to the 14th Century. It is named after the Hampden family (later the Earls of Buckinghamshire) and there has been a Hampden living at the house since the Norman Conquest!

The house caters for a limited number of weddings each year so that the house can rest. The added benefit for the bride is that they are part of something more exclusive, unique and private – with the house itself situated in over 350 acres of historic parkland and beech woods. There is also the 13th Century Parish Church of Great Hampden, St Mary Magdalene situated within the grounds for you to take your vows or alternatively the house is licensed for Civil Ceremonies.

The backdrop for the photography is so stunning, the hall hardly requires many finishing touches. In fact apart from some floral touches I wouldn’t change a thing! Guests can walk past the huge oil paintings, admire the grand fireplaces and then adjourn to the bar for a cozy drink. A top Ellie Press tip … check out the toilets …. seriously I’d be happy just hiring that room out!

As part of the ‘Exclusively Yours’ package couples will automatically get their own exclusive venue stationery from Ellie Press. Couples can also contact Ellie Press is they want to co-ordinate all of their wedding invitations and stationery too either from the ‘Hampden’ range or for something more personal and bespoke.
