Our unique location, on the borders of Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, offers over 400 acres of woodland, heathland and meadows, providing the perfect setting for your big day. Make the most of the spectacular view of the heronry from the deck or take a seat in the Giant's Chair to capture those special moments of your special day!

Rushmere Country Park is co-owned and managed by local environmental charity The Greensand Trust on a not for profit basis. By holding your wedding celebration here you are supporting both the environment and a local charity with all proceeds re-invested into the park.

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. We will do everything we can to make sure the day runs smoothly for you and your guests - we will provide you with your own personal wedding coordinator to oversee the whole day. You will feel at ease knowing your coordinator has it all in hand while incorporating your own personal touches.

We have a licensed bar and fully trained chefs in our kitchen and we work closely with a range of local wedding suppliers we have selected to provide everything you need to make your celebration just perfect.

Bar and Catering Facilities

At Rushmere Country Park we pride ourselves on using fresh, quality products from local suppliers, in line with our green credentials as an environmental charity. We provide a licensed bar manned by our experienced team.

We will tailor the menu to your requirements and are more than happy to work with an outside caterer of your choice. However, this is not an option when choosing the marquee or tipi as your venue.

Celebration with a difference

We understand that not every couple wants, or indeed can afford, a traditional wedding celebration. That's why we are offering the opportunity for couples to create a celebration tailored to suit them for a budget they can afford. It's your big day - all are welcome!

Eventhough we are not licensed to perform the official wedding ceremony on site, we work with Kelly Hawes Celebrant who can bless your marriage here at the park, making moments to cherish for a lifetime.

Party Time!

We don't only provide wedding celebrations - please talk to us about any large event you are planning.

See the park in a different light on a summer's evening when you can watch the sun set behind the meadow. 

We can work with local bands, singers or solo performers to provide the perfect entertainment or background music for you event. Dance under the stars - music can be played here until 11.30pm.
