Venue Overview

High Street, Waddesdon, Aylesbury,Buckinghamshire
The Grade II listed Five Arrows is licensed for marriages and civil weddings, and we offer exclusive use of all the rooms, the restaurant, gardens and Old Coach House so you can celebrate the whole of your perfect day on site if you choose.


The Five Arrows stands at the gates of Waddesdon Manor, which houses one of the finest collections of French decorative arts in the world. The hotel has 16 bedrooms of character and charm. 

There is no typical wedding at the Grade II listed Five Arrows, but to every single event there is a sense of understated elegance and ease.

The Five Arrows is licensed for marriages and civil weddings, so you can enjoy the whole of your perfect day on site if you choose. We offer either bespoke or all-inclusive intimate weddings so you can celebrate with your nearest and dearest in this unique boutique hotel and really make it your own for your day. If there is something you imagine as part of your day, let us know and we will do our best to make it happen. With a 2017 Michelin Guide restaurant, beautiful National Trust maintained grounds, newly refurbished interiors, and outstanding service tailoured to your every need, it is a truly special venue. 

Ceremonies take place in the rustic and charming Old Coach House for 40-70 guests. Follow this with a meal in our award winning restaurant while we change the Old Coach House into a space for you to enjoy a party to remember. Alternatively, for smaller and more intimate events, use the Rothschild Room, with the beautiful Baron's Gate to sign the official register, for any number up to 40, and then have a buffet or succulent hog roast in the Old Coach House for up to 120 with an extension twin pavilion marquee (costs on request).

Looking for an intimate option for up to 40 guests? For the first time, we have created an all-inclusive package from just £50 per person.

We got married at the Five Arrows on 30/06, the day was amazing and the venue and service were exemplary.

When looking at wedding venues we did so with the following criteria -

• Exclusive use
• Initimate boutique feel
• Rooms for our immediate family
• Child friendly

• Good quality food and wine
• Bar in the same room as the DJ
• Wedding co-ordination

Whilst we live almost two hours away, the Five Arrows ticked every box and more.

We were delighted with the service received from all of the staff but in particular Sophie did an amazing job and quietly went about her business helping us to stay on track throughout the day, before slipping into the background.

We received so many positive comments on the venue, food and service from our guests and we are delighted to have chosen the Five Arrows.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone at the Five Arrows for helping to make our wedding day so very special. The staff worked tirelessly, professionally and with a constant smile upon their faces all day. The food and wine were of an exceptionally high standard, our praise to the

chef and his team. The venue was perfect in every way: elegant, intimate and immaculate. The bedrooms were beautifully furnished to a very high standard and the breakfast the following morning was delicious.
Each and every one of our guests commented on what a wonderful venue we had chosen. They were all equally impressed with every aspect of the day.
Finally, we cannot finish off without commenting on Holly C, our wedding coordinator. Her support, advise, expertise, hard work and commitment were key to making our day so perfect in every way.
We could not have chosen a more perfect venue and we recognised that from our first visit but every single aspect of our day was amazing. Thank you.

From the planning stage to the big day Hollie and her team couldn't have made it better.

Hollie led us through the decisions that needed to be made, gave us timely reminders and answered all enquiries promptly and fully. What was lovely was not being passed around between a team, she was our one

point of contact and was always available.

On the day, she was thorough, organised and always calm and friendly.

The room was beautiful and set exactly to our wishes. Each time the room was changed, (from ceremony to dinner to disco) it was done quickly without fuss.

The waiting team were excellent, so many of our family and friends loved the way each person seated at the table was served together, very swish! The food was amazing! All the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough to ensure we had a great day. The bar staff had lots to do but didn't leave a queue waiting, staying helpful until we were all off to bed.

All in all we had a great experience at the Five Arrows and would recommend it to any couple planning their big day.

Thank you to all and well done.

The Five Arrows Hotel was one of many places we looked at as a venue for our wedding but no other venues came anywhere near as close to The Five Arrows. From our very first visit, dealing with the team through to the actual wedding day was extremely professional. The venue is classy, clean and

comfortable and catered for our needs having exclusivity of the hotel for family and friends. Food was designed by ourselves to reflect our family and was a traditional menu which included a roast meal. The food was served hot and to the highest standard with all guests complimenting it throughout the day. The day was organised smoothly by Hollie from the events team and everything was efficient and effective. A lovely, most memorable day made perfect through a fantastic venue.
