An historic wedding venue

The historic setting of Jesus College, together with its beautiful grounds, makes it an attractive wedding reception venue. Our public rooms are licensed for civil ceremonies and we can accommodate and cater for up to 146 guests. The minimum booking numbers for weddings on a Saturday is 80 guests. Please note that we only host weddings in College in conjunction with your wedding breakfast or reception.

The half oak-panelled walls and open fireplace of The Prioress’s Room, for example, lend a unique atmosphere to a wedding reception venue for up to 40 guests. Alternatively, the 19th century thatched cricket pavilion offers both The Pavilion Room and The Pavilion Veranda, together with a beautiful backdrop of the college grounds.

Should you need to cater for up to 146 guests, the medieval carvings and arched windows of The Upper Hall, or the high vaulted ceilings and chandeliers of The Hall make both locations memorable wedding reception venues.

Out of term time we offer accommodation which you can either book on behalf of your guests or we can reserve rooms for you that your guests can book and pay for themselves using a promotional code.

“Thank you so much for all of your help in organising our wedding day. We had an amazing day and you and the team did such a great job of making sure the day ran smoothly and all of our requests were seen too. Our guests all had a really lovely time as the college was such a lovely setting, especially on such a beautiful day. We had loads of great comments about the food and drink too.”
