Few other venues can provide the sense of occasion that you'll find at St John's College, with impressive architecture steeped in history, and the beautiful surroundings of the sweeping College grounds.

Anyone is welcome to have their wedding reception in College, and Members of the College who are within current residence, or out of residence for no more than five years, may have their wedding ceremony in the College Chapel itself.

You can begin with reception drinks in the spectacular College grounds or in one of our reception rooms. Photographs can be taken in some of the unique locations around the College, including the world famous Bridge of Sighs overlooking the River Cam.

The reception can be held in one of a selection of venues, including the 16th century Hall, seating up to 300 people. You can choose your menu from a large selection of dishes suggested by our catering team, or we can cater for your own menu. Our chefs have trained at some of the world's top schools, and provide an exceptionally high level of cuisine.  Much of our produce is locally sourced, and we are a member of the Sustainable Restauranteurs Association.

To ensure that such an important day runs smoothly for you, a member of our team will be dedicated to supporting you.

A wedding at St John's College, Cambridge, is a truly special and memorable occasion. Please see our Wedding Brochure, attached below, for more information.
