Image of Weddings at Jesus


It’s hard to imagine a better backdrop for your wedding photos than our beautiful gardens and historic buildings.

We offer civil ceremonies, wedding drinks receptions, wedding breakfasts and evening parties as part of a package for up to 180 seated guests. With a choice of accommodation on site and the city on your doorstep, we suggest that you and your guests make a weekend of it. Both en-suites and shared bathroom accommodation is available, and our apartments are perfect for Wedding Party preparations.

Outside venues

You’ll be spoiled for choice finding a pretty spot for your wedding drinks reception at Jesus College. There’s the spacious lawn of Chapel Court, overlooked by the Grade 1 listed Chapel, dating from 1245. There’s the paved terrace of Pump Court, an intimate and all-weather location surrounded by the ancient Hall with direct access to the dining, or the rolling grounds of the Orchard. Or you could celebrate under the thatched roof of our Cricket Pavilion Veranda, looking onto the cricket pitch and landscaped gardens. Relax, take photos and enjoy the scenery while our friendly staff serve the drinks and canapés.

Inside venues

Located on the site of a Benedictine Nunnery, Jesus College boasts some of the oldest buildings in Cambridge, dating from the 12th century. We also have contemporary spaces to dine, drink and dance. The Brewery Room can host up to 160 guests and has an acoustically treated celling and a built-in sound system, not to mention the fully stocked bar! So, whether it’s old-fashioned charm or a modern party vibe you’re after, we’ll find the perfect room combination for you.
