Weddings at Magdalene College
We are not offering weddings until 2027 due to essential maintenance work.
Located in the centre of historic Cambridge, beautifully situated on the banks of the River Cam, Magdalene College is an impressive location for your Wedding.
The Pepys building, with its beautiful cloisters bedecked with hanging baskets, lends itself wonderfully for a civil ceremony. And the magnificent 16th-century College Hall, where the wedding party dines by candlelight, creates an atmosphere that is scarcely rivalled elsewhere in Cambridge. Imagine walking through the ancient courts, retracing the steps of T S Elliot, C S Lewis, Samuel Pepys, and Rudyard Kipling to name but a few.
For evening receptions, Ramsay Hall is a perfect space for a disco or Ceilidh. (Please note we cannot permit amplified music).
Your Wedding Day is one of the most important days of your life. Our dedicated Wedding coordinator and team of experts aim to ensure that you have a perfect and memorable day that you, your family and friends will treasure for years to come.
