Minstrel Court Full Description
Located on the borders of Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Essex and Cambridgeshire, Minstrel Court is a historic Listed Tudor Manor set in six acres of beautifully landscaped grounds overlooking a private lake. The facilities are very flexible with a marquee overlooking the lake and our listed Starlit Hall for dancing and entertainment (including our unique light-up Disco Dance Floor)! At Minstrel Court there is no need to turn a single room around! Unlike most other venues in the UK, we have two romantic settings for your ceremony effectively offering an all-year-round facility regardless of weather!. With one Pavilion overlooking the lake, and a beamed Orangery with a view of Wimpole Meadows, both Pavilions are glassed in and heated and your guests are also covered creating two beautiful spaces to get married! Finally, we have our amazing three-storey Tudor Barn which will seat up to 135, so now whether you like beautiful outdoor marquees or soaring beamed Barns (complete with stained glass windows!) we can cater for every preference, making Minstrel Court one of the most flexible wedding venues anywhere!! New for this season is the stunning illuminated Lounge Bar adjacent to the Starlit Hall where guests can relax in comfort without having to shout over a disco! Our highly experienced wedding team will be available to assist you in the planning of your special day, from your first inquiry right through to departure of the last guest. We are completely flexible with the arrangements from reception only, to full civil ceremonies There are no fixed menus and all food requirements are fully flexible Subject to availability it may be possible to gain access the day before in order to decorate and dress the venue, taking much of the stress out of the Wedding Day! All of our packages are fully flexible and any element including food, alcohol, timings and guest numbers can be changed or upgraded to suit you!

The best day of my life
From day one of viewing the venue, Minstrel Court shone for us. It is a beautiful mostly outdoor venue with multiple buildings including a marquee and the beautiful lake pavilion. The venue owner Dave was absolutely meticulous with the planning of our day and made sure that from start to finish it ran smoothly and he continually was asking us if there was anything else we needed. It was incredibly stressful planning our wedding during a pandemic but booking our venue and rearranging our date was not a stressful part because Dave was so quick to reply and keen to help in anyway that he could. I cannot believe that we finally had our day, the sun was shining and I cannot wait to receive our photographs of this beautiful venue.

The perfect day, the perfect venue
We got married at Minstrel Court in August 2019 - a stunningly beautiful venue with a relaxed country side vibe. Planning the wedding was very easy, Dave responds very promptly and will help with all ideas. We got ready on site and had the ceremony by the lake and the wedding breakfast in the barn - which is gorgeous! The food was delicious and completely customised. The grounds are so lovely and all our guests enjoyed being outside by the lake, relaxing on the grass on picnic blankets or playing some garden games, before DJ Bob started the dancing in the evening! It was the perfect day.
