If you want to get away from the traditional church ceremony or registry office ceremony, our Meadow Suite and Waterside Restaurant are licensed to hold Civil Wedding and Civil Partnership Ceremonies, giving you more freedom to make your wedding day truly special.
The maximum number we can accommodate is 80 guests for the Meadow Suite and 120 guests for the Waterside Restaurant.
When booking a Civil Wedding or Partnership Ceremony, we advise that you first check our availability. Making a provisional booking, which is held for 2 weeks, gives you the time to contact the Registrar in the county in which you live, who will then, if you wish to get married in Cambridgeshire, check availability with the relevant Registrar.
Within the 2 week period, we will require your signed booking form and a deposit based on the size of your wedding.
The Meadow Suite is probably the most popular venue in the area for wedding receptions but, should it be unavailable, our Waterside Restaurant is a very attractive alternative*.
