Marquee Weddings in a Cambridge Hotel Grounds

Rectory Farm marquee is the most perfect spot for your English country wedding. We are 2 miles from the illustrious Kings College Chapel, the famed city of Cambridge and punting on the river Cam. Rectory marquee is located on the edge of this ancient city and yet is surrounded by fields and gardens. Our traditional, pristine marquee is constructed every year.

It is situated in a glorious English garden with borders of roses, hollyhocks, honeysuckle, lavender. Weeping willows border the marquee. The canvas facade, cream interior, majestic Venetian chandeliers and twinkling dance-floor provide a neutral colour scheme on which you can put your personal stamp.


The Ceremony

Hold your civil ceremony at Rectory Farm where the City Registrar will conduct the legal celebration sealing your marriage. The ceremony is held in the traditionally styled ‘Folly’ with Norfolk Reed thatch from local reed beds and Eucalyptus timbers from South Africa.

Sunny days allow guests to be seated on the lawn while the Pavilion ensures cover from wind and rain in the event of a summer shower.

The House is licensed for smaller groups of approximately 50.

The Marquee


Access to the marquee is by a ‘secret’ covered walkway that ensures cover in the event of wind and rain as it weaves its way through flower borders and shrubs. Complete with the Venetian chandeliers, canopy reception area and enchanting walkway the marquee measures 80’ x 40’ and is lined with Ivory, with a full timber subfloor, onto which green carpet is laid.

This along with ivory/cream chairs provides an elegant backdrop and enables you to decorate the marquee in your own personal style. There is a dance-floor with twinkly lights in it and also in the canopy above for your choice of entertainment.

The marquee seats up to 180 people for more traditional wedding breakfast or 200 for stylish, more relaxed stand-up buffets. Our caterers will work with you to create a bespoke selection of canapés, buffets and banquets in accordance with your taste and budget.


Celebrate and Personalise

The lawn, garden and marquee are an enchanting setting for parties and celebrations of all kinds including parties, birthdays, anniversaries, christenings and weddings. The lawn and garden make a wonderful setting for reception drinks and a gentle game of croquet.

As dusk falls, the garden lights up, changing the mood for your evening party, while tiny lights in the canopy of the reception area provide illuminated cover in a more sheltered area.

We provide lots of space and a unique opportunity for you to tailor your day to your requirements and add your own personal touch. We have even had a fairground move in for one couple’s big day.


The Bridal Suite


The bridal suite, included in the package, provides a romantic setting for your wedding night. A beautiful, large, light and spacious room with king size bed and huge bay window with views over the carefully tended gardens.

The suite is a wonderful room for the bride to get ready on the morning of the wedding, with dressing and sitting areas, space for your bridesmaids and entourage. There are fantastic photo opportunities within the suite and gardens.

The House and Chalet buildings provide accommodation for your guests.

From family suites to standard doubles, we provide a friendly, high-quality service.

Dear Rodger and Alison, we just wanted to send a little note to say what a fantastic day we had at our wedding. Your venue is amazing and we had many comments from my friends saying the same! The caterers did a great job and the food was simply delicious! The whole day was absolutely perfect and we just wish we could do it all again!

Lindsey & Will

Thank you so much for all your help for our wedding. It was the most perfect day and Rectory Farm is a very memorable venue that we will never forget!

Chloe & Ben

We used Rectory Farm as our wedding venue for the reception after our family wedding. Roger and Alison Foster were exemplary in all they did for us and it made for a very happy weekend. The service was superb and breakfast was quite delicious.

Victoria & Paddy

Rectory Farm is a simply delightful venue. We had our wedding reception here and Alison and Roger were extremely accommodating. During the preceding six months, Alison was most attentive in helping us plan our day. During the weekend of our wedding Alison and Roger were most welcoming to all our guests and gave us full reign of their venue for hire, they remained in the background, but were there if we needed them.

Happy Couple

The venue itself is stunning; simple, yet elegant. The house and the garden are beautifully kept and the marquee is by far the best we have seen for a wedding venue. With a sturdy floor, beautiful toilets and complete with chandeliers from Venice. The onsite accommodation was perfect for many of our guests who travelled from afar, who could make it their home for the weekend. We had a wonderful weekend and wedding day here and would highly recommend Rectory Farm.

Fiona & James

Dear Alison and Roger, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so special. As soon as we came to Rectory Farm we knew this was the place and every stage you have put us first and made us feel fantastic! Your attitude and attention to detail is like no other venue and it has been first class and exactly as we dreamt!

Lee & Emma
