Minstrel Court



Minstrel Court Wedding Venue is a beautiful listed Tudor Manor House wedding venue set in 5 acres of sensational landscaped grounds overlooking a private lake. A perfect wedding venue setting, bursting with charm, character and romance!

As well as...a great place to hold your wedding reception or have your marriage blessed, Minstrel Court also has a choice of three beautiful locations to actually get married! Specialising in all year round outdoor ceremonies whatever the weather (not usually possible at other venues) most couples choose to marry in one of our sensational outdoor locations!

At the Lake Pavilion your guests can sit on our island to watch you cross the Chinese Bridge and walk to a fairytale pavilion overlooking the lake!. And inclement weather need not necessarily prove a problem – the Pavilion is fitted with easily removable glass panels and heaters and a full roof covers your guests during any inclement weather!

The Meadow Pavilion with amazing views of the Wimpole Meadows is actually accessed by a walkway from the house allowing you and your guests to arrive warm and dry whatever the weather – no more worrying about rain on the day!. As well as being equipped with full PA and music facilities, like the Lake Pavilion it has glass walls to protect you and your guests from sun and showers.

Alternatively, your ceremony can be held in our beautiful beamed Long Gallery with its large french windows overlooking the Terrace. Comfortably seating from 30 up to 140 it is equipped with a state of the art PA system cleverly hidden in the roof beams ensuring your guests can clearly hear every word!

For the Wedding Breakfast our beautiful marquee provides a stunning setting overlooking the gardens and the lake complete with dimming chandeliers, a PA for music and speeches and state of the art heating.

In the evening the Long Gallery becomes the entertainment area complete with our unique light up led dance floor and ample space for a band or disco. Adjacent to this is the vaulted Granary featuring the brand new illuminated Sky Lounge Bar with tables and chairs allowing people to feel part of the celebration, relaxing and chatting without having to shout over a disco!!

Every aspect of the venue can be made wheelchair accessible and we have full disabled toilets
Finally, continuing on from the Sky Bar is the lofty 3 Storey Regency Barn which will seat up to 130, so now whether you like beautiful outdoor marquees or soaring beamed barns we can cater for every preference, making Minstrel Court one of the most flexible wedding venues anywhere!
