Located on the borders of Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Essex and Cambridgeshire, Minstrel Court is an historic Listed Tudor Manor set in six acres of beautifully landscaped grounds overlooking a private lake. The facilities are very flexible with a marquee overlooking the lake and our listed Long Gallery for dancing and entertainment (including our unique light up Disco Dance Floor)! At Minstrel Court there is no need to turn a single room around!
Unlike most other venues in the UK, we have three romantic settings for your ceremony effectively offering an all year round facility regardless of weather!. With one Pavilion overlooking the lake, and a beamed Chapel with a view of Wimpole Meadows, both Pavilions are glassed in and heated and your guests are also covered creating two beautiful spaces to get married anytime! If you prefer we also have the equally attractive listed beamed Long Gallery overlooking the Terrace which can seat from 60 - 145 guests!
Finally, we have our amazing three storey Regency Barn which will seat up to 135, so now whether you like beautiful outdoor marquees or soaring beamed Barns (complete with stained glass windows!) we can cater for every preference, making Minstrel Court one of the most flexible wedding venues anywhere!!
STOP PRESS!! New for this season is the stunning illuminated Sky Lounge Bar adjacent to the Long Gallerey where guests can relax in comfort without having to shout over a disco!
Our highly experienced wedding team will be available to assist you in the planning of your special day, from your first enquiry right through to departure of the last guest. We are completely flexible with the arrangements from reception only, to full civil ceremonies both outdoors or indoors accommodating numbers from up to 145 during the day to 200 plus in the evening!
There are no fixed menus and all food requirements are fully flexible. So far this year, as well as traditional three course Wedding Breakfasts we have catered Hog Roasts, Barbecues, Fish and Chips, an afternoon Cream Tea, a Thai Banquet, an Indian Feast and Pie and Mash!
Subject to availability it may be possible to gain access the day before in order to decorate and dress the venue, taking much of the stress out of the Wedding Day!
All of our packages are fully flexible and any element including food, alcohol, timings and guest numbers can be changed or upgraded to suit yourselves!

We held our wedding here last weekend and it was fantastic from start to finish! We had originally booked for late 2020 but decided to bring it forward with just under 8 weeks to go until the big day! Dave was brilliant and went above and beyond to ensure our day went brilliantly, he was so accommodating with the date change and very responsive on emails to any questions we had. On the day everything from the food to the disco, the bar staff and the fireworks were perfect any questions or requests we made were done in seconds. Holding our wedding in December we knew it was going to be cold and dark but the venue looks even more beautiful in the dark with all the twinkly lights over the lake.Sent on 17/12/2019
We would 110% recommend Dave and his team at Minstrel Court.

Beautiful venue for our daughter's wedding, the food was excellent and very good size portions for everyone, the extra's like the bouncy castle and outside games just added to the day which was brilliant, the fireworks added that extra special touch to the end of the day which everyone enjoyed, I can't fault anything about the day it was just amazing!Sent on 23/09/2019

Superb Wedding Venue
We couldn't recommend Mintrel Court, Dave and his team more highly! Dave was so helpful from start to finish and very relaxed too with an anything is possible attitude. He and his team made our day a very special one with the smooth running of the day, top quality food and service. I'm still talking about our food now. We had very specific requirements and Dave and his chef nailed it to perfection! Every wish we made for our big day was granted and all our guests were so happy. The venue speaks for itself with it's beautiful lake, barn and marquee. This venue would be beautiful any time of year and we chose it initially due to the fact that we wanted an outdoor wedding and it's almost guaranteed whatever the weather. It rained on our day but it didn't spoil a thing!Sent on 07/09/2019
Thank you so much Dave and the Team. You really made a dream come true
