The Dining Hall can host up to 118 guests, which includes the use of the High Table, for your wedding breakfast, and up to 200 guests for the evening reception. For more intimate receptions, we have two beautiful traditional dining rooms that are perfectly suited to celebrate your special day with close friends and family.

Would highly recommend

Fantastic venue, Hannah and the team helped us through every step of the way when organising (then postponing, then finally having!) a lockdown wedding. Hannah's attention to detail was extraordinary and we felt in excellent hands. The venue itself is beautiful, the catering excellent and the staff all very professional and friendly. I could not recommend highly enough.

First wedding back and what a success

We have been planning our daughter's wedding for nearly two years and with three changes of dates it has been very stressful. Hannah and the team took all of the stress out of the planning and were so helpful in terms of planning the day and organising really great support services like flowers, cake, photo and music. Compared to other venues we look at they were head and shoulders above the rest. A memorable day in every way but the attention to detail and the professionalism of the team made it one of the happiest days ever. Thanks to all of you that helped this day to be such a success.

Wonderful and personal wedding venue

We cannot recommend Westminster highly enough. The college itself is stunning, but what really makes it such a special venue is the exceptional personal service and guidance from Hannah and her team, all delivered with a high degree of expertise, integrity and discretion. We felt so supported throughout and loved the fact that the college was able to offer a degree of flexibility to us, so that we could tailor the day according to our requirements (including in relation to the food, which was delicious!) - this really sets it apart from the more corporate 'wedding package' venues and made our day the personal, elegant and yet relaxed occasion we had hoped for.

A wonderful venue, enjoyed by all!

We enjoyed a wonderful wedding at Westminster, from the service in the chapel, reception outside, a three course dinner and then evening ceilidh. Our guests were very complimentary about the food (best chocolate fondant 'ever') and loved the venue. Michaela and Hannah who organised the day with us were lovely and went out of their way to support us to have the most memorable day. We would highly recommend Westminster as a wedding venue.

Wedding Reception 1 September 2018

We are absolutely delighted to tell the world about our fantastic wedding reception held at Westminster College last Saturday. Hannah is such a credit to Westminster, so professional, calm and caring. Her attention to detail and organisational skills are tremendous and her team an absolute credit to her.
We are not a young couple and have experienced high end hospitality all over the world including the very best cruise ships. Our experience at Westminster College exceeded all our expectations. Food was absolutely first class, real quality produce and presentation wonderful. Everything went like clockwork thanks to Hannah and her team. We cannot recommend Westminster College enough. This is not just our opinion, it is that of our guests of similar standing that considered this to be one of the best weddings they have been to. Our heartfelt thanks Hannah and team from both of us.

Wonderful winter wedding at Westminster

We must start by thanking Hannah – Westminster’s truly amazing wedding co-ordinator. When we first met she immediately put us at ease and started helping us to think through creating a wonderful wedding breakfast and reception.

Westminster made realising our vision for the day really easy. After discussing our design ideas with Hannah, just ahead of the day we dropped off all manner of table and venue dressings – and came back to find the rooms beautifully set. We were genuinely impressed.

What also really set the venue apart for us was the suite of beautiful rooms which were included in the booking. We loved the barrel-vaulted main hall for our wedding breakfast and ceilidh, and made full use of the Assembly Room and Lodge beyond for our guests to find some more private space. Given the large number of children we had attending, and having a winter wedding, the modern Cheshunt Room which we used as a children’s play room made the day for many of our guests.

Also worth a mention is the quality of the food – which was top notch (and we shall probably never forget our menu tasting…) and chef’s flexibility in meeting our guests’ dietary requirements with a complete commitment to flavours. Westminster also went above and beyond sourcing exactly the cheese we wanted for our evening buffet.

Thank you to all the staff at Westminster who made the day so enjoyable for us and our guests.

A perfect reception

We held our wedding reception at Westminster this summer and our day could not have been more wonderful. The venue is absolutely beautiful, with an ornate dining hall and charming outside space which our guests loved. The college is also perfectly located at the edge of the city centre, meaning it was very easy for our guests to access. The food was delicious, with a wide choice of options for both the wedding breakfast and canapes. The kitchen staff were also very accommodating, offering to adapt the menu to suit our tastes and our guests’ dietary needs. Weeks later, many of our guests are still complimenting us on the quality of the food! Hannah, Westminster’s wedding coordinator, was brilliant from start to finish, consistently going the extra mile to help us put together the perfect wedding reception. On the day itself, we didn’t have to worry about anything, and everyone was able to enjoy our beautiful reception from the moment we arrived. We can’t thank everyone at Westminster enough for such a perfect day. We would wholeheartedly recommend Westminster to anyone looking for a venue in Cambridgeshire.

My Daughters Wedding

My Daughter held her wedding here in August 2016 and we cannot thank Westminster College enough for what was a perfect day. From start to finish everyone was so welcoming and friendly. The food was some of the best food I have eaten and the service was simply perfect. Westminster College is a truly beautiful venue but what sets it apart is the staff, their attention to detail along with their friendly, relaxed approach makes a perfect combination. Thank you again to everyone involved.

Our Perfect Day!

We were lucky enough to hold our Wedding at Westminster College this year with its picturesque gardens and stunning Dining Hall. We fell in love with the venue and our guests were in awe of the beauty of the building. The whole team made our day perfect from the effortless and helpful service to the deliciously decadent food. Nothing was too much trouble in the planning and right through the day. We can never repay them for the memories they gave to us and the way they made every one of our guests feel. It was so lovely to feel relaxed and enjoy the whole day with our friends and family’

Grandeur & Intimacy!

We cannot thank Westminster College and its staff enough for the wonderful way they helped us translate ideas for our perfect wedding into reality. We searched high and low for a venue including several Cambridge Colleges but nothing matched the friendliness of the staff or the grandeur and intimacy of the venue. We were really pleased with the flexibility shown and when it came the day itself it could not have been better.
