About The Cambridge Belfry

Our hotel is a wedding venue in Cambridge blessed with a beautiful lakeside location, making The Cambridge Belfry the perfect backdrop for your wedding day. 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. Our aim is to surpass your expectations as a wedding venue, and to make your wedding the happiest, most special day of your life.

Me and my husband had our wedding on the 14th march! I would deffintly recommended to other people if they are looking to have a wedding at a hotel! Lucy the wedding planner was brilliant always at the other end of the phone or email. The staff on the day were brilliant especially Anne! The food was amazing all the guests commented. The room looked beautiful . We had no stress at all about our wedding , child friendly all the guests said they felt comftorable and some of the guests Said it was the best wedding they had been to in a long time! We had a amazing time deffintly recommended !

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.

Everything Ran Smoothly

By Sarah Wellington, on 14 Feb 2014

From the planning, to the wedding day, everything ran smoothly. Kirsten was always on hand to answer any queries we had, and ensure everything that needed to be done was done. She even helped us sort our table plan, which was so helpful. On the big day, Andrew was amazing, he was there when we needed him and ensured the whole day ran faultlessly. I can't fault anything the Belfry did. They ensured our day was amazing and everything we wanted it to be. Thank you for making our day so special.

Amazing Staff and Welcoming Atmosphere

By Gemma Stannard, on 14 Feb 2014

The Belfry Hotel is a lovely venue but what makes this place exceptional are the amazing staff and the welcoming atmosphere they create. I held my wedding at The Belfry and even now a month afterwards my guests are still commenting on how amazing the day was, how great the staff managed the event and how they cant wait to have another meal at The Belfry. If you want a venue that is clean and welcoming, food that is cooked and served to a high standard and staff who really care then this is the place you should book! Thank you so much to everyone who made our day as amazing as it was in particular thanks to Kirsten and Andrew. Mr & Mrs Stannard.

Could not Fault a Thing

By Rebecca Gilligan, on 14 Feb 2014

We chose the Belfry because of the good size function rooms, the modern interior and the lake area which we thought would be ideal for our wedding photos. We chose a wedding package to suit our needs and budget; our wedding organiser was very good at replying to all of my emails and phone calls as we had lots of questions which were promptly handled. Leading up to our big day, our wedding organiser made sure she had every detail of the day and how we wanted the day to run. The actual wedding day ran so smoothly and the hotel staff were brilliant. All our guests commented on how good the whole day was, we honestly couldnt fault a thing. We were given a main contact on the day who dealt with everything; he organised timings for the meal, photos etc. and told us where we needed to be next! I would definitely recommend the Belfry for any couple looking for a wedding venue.

The Food Was Delicious

By Gemma Stillwell, on 14 Feb 2014

We had a fantastic day, from the very first appointment to the morning after the wedding, the staff could not have done any more to make it run as smoothly as it did. No request was too big, and considering we had major allergy sufferers, asked to bring a dog and make lots of mess, this didn't phase anyone. The food was delicious and served by friendly staff. I would not hesitate to recommend this venue for any occasion.

Without a Hitch

By Clair Stroud, on 14 Feb 2014

"Planning a wedding can be a stressful endeavour but the team at The Cambridge Belfry ensured that the process was a pleasurable experience. Our wedding planner (Kirsten) was professional and a joy to work with. Nothing was too much trouble, including providing meals for fussy eaters, lactose intolerant guests and those that needed gluten-free alternatives. Any potential issues were communicated promptly with an alternative solution provided. Once handed over to our co=ordinator for the day (Andrew), we were put at ease and made to feel like the most important guests in the hotel. The day passed without hitch, due to impeccable co-ordination skills and great flexibility. The food was great and, all in all, the day was a great success. I would highly recommend The Cambridge Belfry as a wedding venue of superior quality."

The Most Amazing Wedding Day

By Nicole Keel, on 14 Feb 2014

"We cannot thank the staff at The Cambridge Belfry enough for the most amazing wedding day! The run up to the wedding was so smooth and Kirsten the wedding co-ordinator was amazing with communication and answering my hundreds of questions. From the second I walked through the door I was made to feel like royalty, the staff were amazing and attentive, they could not help enough. The day ran so smoothly by Andrew and the team, we have never been to a wedding that has run on time and wasn't rushed, however Andrew and the team kept everything on time and relaxed. The food was incredible, and everyone had such an amazing day! Thank you so much to everybody at The Cambridge Belfry."

Overseas Wedding

By Shannon Van Aswegen, on 14 Feb 2014

"Due to living abroad, I didn't actually meet Kirsten the wedding co-ordinator until two days before the wedding! I had the extra stress of my fiancée being in Afghanistan for 7 months before the wedding, so arrangements were quite slow and difficult at times from my end. Kirsten was always there for me at the end of an email or on the phone, and happy to advise when I needed her help, and also equally happy to accommodate my requests. She is a credit to your hotel."
