Perched on the edge of a picturesque lake as well as tranquil courtyard surroundings, which are both ideal for photos, the hotel offers a stylish setting for either a small intimate wedding or a larger celebration for up to 180 guests. We are also a wedding reception venue, so if an evening event is more your style, we can tailor our packages to suit your needs. 

We have various function rooms which are licensed for civil ceremonies, which allows us to be the perfect wedding venue for every aspect of your big day. All of our stunning wedding suites flood with natural daylight, each with a private outside area, providing not only the perfect place for photos but also for you to mingle with your guests over a glass of fizz. 

The advantage of being a hotel is that we can provide your guests with preferential accommodation rates, enabling them to enjoy all the facilities at the hotel during their stay such as our health club and spa areas. OurCambridgewedding venue is close to the city centre, but detached enough to avoid the difficulty and expense of parking which can sometimes be experienced there. 

We also provide you with experienced wedding co-ordinators who are on hand not only throughout your special day, but in the planning and build up to the big event. They will help to plan and deliver every detail, from organising florists and photographers to creating bespoke menus and pouring the celebratory drinks.

Venue 'Best Wedding Venue Ever'

By Dan Thayer, on 14 Sep 2015

We booked our wedding in February 2014 for August 2015 and, whilst our original event planner left soon after booking, their replacement, Lucy Mills ensured that everything went without a hitch. From the very start we were made to feel very comfortable and confident that our wedding was in safe hands. The budget was clear and there were so many options available, yet we never felt overwhelmed. We had a wonderful menu tasting session and got to spend a food amount of time with the head chef discussing what we wanted on the day. On arrival the day before the wedding, we were able to check in early, were provided with ample space in the chiller room for our mountain of cupcakes. The staff were superb; polite, efficient, and always available to answer even our most ridiculous of questions. The day itself went extremely smoothly, the food was wonderful and the bar staff were extremely patient. The suite we had for the night was HUGE, and we even got a box of chocolates on the bed. Everyone who attended has complimented us on our choice of venue. We couldn't be happier!

Venue 'Mr and Mrs Hannington'

By Laura Hannington, on 17 Aug 2015

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone for anything. But the main point of this review is for our wedding. We couldn't have pulled off our big day with the staff at this wonderful venue. Our special thanks to Lucy and Lauren for whom nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious and not a complaint by anyone, the turn around times of our room from wedding to wedding breakfast to evening do was swift and efficient. The bar staff were fabulous, very important for our guests and the room was spectacular! The reception staff were both friendly and efficient. in other words everything we were looking for from our venue we found here at the belfry, they truly were 5 star :)

Venue 'Gary and Kerry Wedding'

By Mr & Mrs Boardman, on 15 Aug 2015

Got married at the Belfry nearly 3 weeks ago and they could not have been more helpful and the day could not have gone any better. All the pre-wedding organisation with Lucy was excellent and even though Lucy was on holiday on the day of the wedding Lauren looked after everything brilliantly. Rooms were great, complimentary champagne, help to set up the tables and room, letting guests book in early to give them time to get ready, food excellent, service from the front desk to the waiters and waitresses could not be faulted. Thank you to all the staff at the Belfry for making our specially day so very memorable and a day that will never be forgotten.

Venue 'The Perfect Day'

By Nina, on 11 Aug 2015

When you plan your wedding, you have so many questions about the logistics of it all and is everything going to come together how you imagined it on the day etc! Well from when we booked The Belfry, I seemed to always have questions that were answered promptly and put my mind at ease! The hotel were so flexible, we were even able to change rooms as the number of guests kept going up!! When we had our meeting about a month before, every little detail was covered and I felt sure that the hotel wouldn't let us down - and they didn't!!! We had a lot of outside people coming in the morning to decorate the room and drop things off and then for the wedding we had a couple of different outside entertainers coming in and the hotel were very flexible about this. We had quite a large wedding but for the Wedding Breakfast, the food came out quickly for everyone (in fact a lot of people commented on how it was the best wedding food they have had!) I would highly recommend The Belfry for your wedding day - our only regret is that the day went too quickly!!

Venue 'Would highly recommend'

By Jane and Richard Nixon, on 11 Jun 2015

We held our wedding at The Belfry in May 2015, what can I say the staff were fantastic, the food was brilliant and had a truly wonderful day. We could not have asked for anything more the venue was wonderful and the lake was ideal for photographs. Looking back on the day there is not a single thing we would change, the staff were very attentive and there was always someone on hand if needed. Callum and Lucy were brilliant as were all the staff who were very friendly and polite. Would recommend this venue to anyone. Thank you for making out wedding day so special.

Venue 'Best wedding day ever!!!'

By Z Bagwell, on 10 May 2015

We had our wedding at the Cambridge Belfry on 2nd of May, and we honestly think it couldn't have gone any better. We had a fantastic time, and everyone at the hotel went out of their way to help us and make us feel welcome on every possible occasion. Lucy, the wedding coordinator, has been amazing throughout the planning, always quick to respond on the phone or by email – really, she made everything so much easier and fun for us! We had 40 rooms booked for our guests, and Lucy has handled our requests flawlessly together with the central reservation team. Most of our guests commented on how nice the rooms were and how nice the spa was. Our suite (the Butler) was beautiful, the big bathroom and the jacuzzi was gorgeous, and we were treated like royalty by the reception staff. Definitely a winner! Our weekend started on Friday, where we had arranged a BBQ for the two families to mingle the day before the big event, which was a big hit. The wedding day itself was dreamy. Callum made sure everything ran on time, he was constantly checking to see if everyone was happy, I really felt like we were properly looked after well. The day went by virtually stress-free for us, all thanks to Callum and his team, and their hard work. The food was amazing, people specifically commented on how good everything tasted, and we were very, very impressed. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend the Belfry and its staff to any couple who are looking for a wedding venue. Honestly, they went above and beyond anything we could have asked for, and we are very grateful to all of the staff for making our wedding day truly amazing and wonderfully unforgettable.

Venue 'Wedding at The Belfry - Would definitely recommend'

By Gina and Stuart Taylor, on 07 May 2015

We held our wedding at The Cambridge Belfry. From start to finish i cannot fault any aspect of the service we were provided with. Throughout our visits to the venue for planning aspects of the day we didn’t come across one unhelpful or unfriendly member of staff. Everyone at the hotel went out their way to assist us with everything we needed I (Gina) stayed at the hotel and got ready there, and again myself and the bridal party found the service faultless - the extra touches (chocolates/champagne with dinner etc) which were provided just made the day all that more special. All of the staff involved in assisting the event on, before and after the day were superb. Everyone knew their role and executed it without fuss or panic, which ensured everyone was super calm and relaxed on the day! Nothing was too much to ask and all friends and family that attended the day and evening commented on what a great day they had and how much they liked the venue Particular thanks to Lucy, Wedding and Events Planner, who was fantastic in keeping in touch and ensuring everything was planned exactly how we wanted; To Ann and Callum, who were great with me, and getting everything organised and moved etc with such precision and calm. All in all though the whole team were great and really contributed to a great day. Thank you.

Venue 'Perfect day!'

By Jennifer and Oliver, on 05 May 2015

My husband and I got married at The Cambridge Belfry in April 2015, and we cannot praise the hotel and staff enough. Lucy, the hotel's wedding planner helped with all the organisation, and she was always available to answer any queries we had, very quickly. She made sure everything was sorted for our big day and introduced us to Callum and Anne, who would be running the day. The day itself couldn't have been more perfect, Callum was our master of ceremonies and it all ran so smoothly. The food was excellent for the wedding breakfast and everyone was served very quickly, and the evening buffet had a huge selection . The day was exactly how we had pictured it! We would recommend the hotel to any couples looking for a venue around Cambridge, the hotel packages are great value for money. Plus, your pictures around the lake will look fantastic!!

Venue 'I did not have to worry about a thing'

By Leanne Clarke, on 18 Feb 2014

Myself and my husband booked our wedding reception at The Belfry 18 months in advance of our big day, the staff were always happy to help with any questions or queries we had throughout that time, whether it via email or in person. Closer to the event the personalised service we received was impeccable and we couldn't fault it in any way. We were able to organise the day to exactly what we had hoped for, including personalised drinks orders for the wedding breakfast, which went down a treat with the people in question. On the day, the whole wedding party felt looked after by all of the staff, who made sure everyone was happy and always had a drink in their hand and a smile on their face. The food was simply amazing, everyone has since told me on several occasions how nice it was. My experience as a bride was unforgettable, I didn't have to worry about a thing. I had full confidence in the team and they did us both proud. I have been recommending them to everyone that will listen since! Our main team contacts were Kirsten (who helped with all the organisation up until the day), she is very friendly, very efficient and always happy to answer any questions I came up with. On the day we had both Chris and Stuart who made sure everything went as planned and we cannot thank all three enough for giving us the most amazing day.
