Located in a tranquil spot on the edge of the city centre, Murray Edwards College is a hidden gem. One of the more modern Cambridge colleges with wide, light-filled corridors, a magnificent main dining hall as well as smaller, more intimate spaces, it's a versatile venue for a city-chic reception. The Fountain Court Walkway is ideal for pre-dinner drinks and overlooks the fountains, a wow-factor feature lit up at night. With world-renowned works of art to admire inside the venue, the gardens are a major part of the Murray Edwards experience too. The Orchard Court lawn is ideal for marquees, inflatables and outdoor games and the secluded Fellows' Garden leads directly off the Fellows' Suite which includes a dining and drawing room; great as a wet-weather back up! Receptions for up to 210 guests can take place in the Dome Dining Hall, which boasts a dancefloor and bar. For more intimate affairs with up to 70 people, the Fellows' Suite furnished with colourful rugs, art and attractive furniture, is ideal.
Located on the site of a Benedictine Nunnery, Jesus College boasts some of the oldest buildings in Cambridge dating from Norman times. Here history combines with modern award-winning architecture and beautiful grounds to provide an impressive big-day setting. The versatile venue caters for weddings large or small with a choice of traditional and historic rooms and spaces for ceremonies and wedding breakfasts joined by up to 130 family and friends. In contrast the modern Brewery Room is the ideal setting for the evening reception, complete with a party room, upstairs seating and a private bar, you can celebrate your new married status with up to 160 loved ones. The grounds, gardens and historic buildings provide the quintessential Cambridge backdrop for a chilled drinks reception and the wedding photographs. Garden furniture is available too, so your guests can sit out on the lawns and soak up the atmosphere. If you're looking for an outdoor setting, you can get married at the thatched Cricket Pavilion built in 1924 with the college grounds in the background. In case of rain, the Hall would also be reserved for you.
