If you’re looking for a reception venue close to Cambridge city centre, with a cool contemporary style and gardens to boot, Murray Edwards College, ticks all the boxes.
Although it’s not licensed for ceremonies, the college is just a five-minute walk from the Shire Hall register office, so you can tie the knot and celebrate here afterwards.
The modern architecture makes for a stylish setting, with a variety of rooms and spaces decorated in a range of styles so there’s something to suit everyone.
The light and airy rooms can be set up in different ways and the dining hall is the college’s star attraction, with its spectacular dome ceiling.
You can host your whole reception here, with as many as 270 guests seated banquet-style for the wedding breakfast and there’s a dancefloor and bar too.
Great for al fresco drinks and canapes post-vows, the gardens are informal but beautiful and, unlike some Cambridge colleges, you’re welcome to walk on the grass!
Fellows Garden is located in a quiet secluded corner of the college, while Orchard Court has a long lawn, surrounded by pretty borders, and is ideal for larger gatherings.
