Civil Ceremonies Buckinghamshire

Your civil ceremony

Our Skippings Barn and Northolt Barn are great venues for your civil ceremony. Our barns are set within the beautiful Museum grounds among our other historic buildings. The rescued buildings at the Museum are all the homes or workplaces of ordinary people. Full of charm and character, each one has its own story. By holding your wedding in one of our barns you become a part of their history and help us to preserve their future.

Skippings Barn can seat up to 65 people for a civil ceremony and Northolt Barn can set up to 80. For maximum flexibility and to make the most of these spectacular spaces, some of our wedding couples decide to book Northolt Barn for their civil ceremony and then host their wedding reception in our Skippings Barn, which has a stunning minstrels’ gallery and oak staircase. The barns can be booked separately, or as part of a combined package.

You can upgrade your wedding package by booking a romantic horse and carriage ride around the Museum’s grounds, or let your wedding guests enjoy horse and carriage rides throughout the day (subject to availability and conditions).

Please note that it is the responsibility of the hirer to book the registrar.

For further information on our civil ceremonies and to check availability please contact our wedding team on or call the office on 01494 871 117.
