The Setting

An exclusive haven near Cambridge, just 3 miles from the vibrant city, Histon Manor sits on 11 acres of private grounds, providing an idyllic dry hire venue for wedding receptions. The allure of this venue lies in its exclusivity, allowing only five weddings per year. Surrounded by trees, the grounds offer a secluded and private environment, ensuring an intimate and personal celebration.

Histon Manor’s grounds are a canvas for creating the perfect outdoor event. Marquees can grace the front lawn, with drinks receptions by the fountain in the formal gardens. For a more relaxed and informal festival vibe, the old tennis court lawn, embraced by woodlands and fields, is the ideal setting.

A mere 10-15 minutes from Cambridge city centre, the venue is conveniently located in a vibrant village, offering guests diverse accommodation options and exciting pre-wedding activities.

The Vibe

A Histon Manor wedding unfolds in unique and versatile spaces, allowing couples to craft a beautifully distinct celebration. From formal gardens to a moated island, guests can explore varied settings that align with the desired vibe for the day. The venue’s enchanting ambience, described by a recent wedding guest as having “muted grandeur,” creates a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, making every guest feel at home.

Histon Manor embraces freedom in wedding customisation, accommodating anything from a relaxed festival-style gathering to a formal wedding ball. Celebrant and humanist ceremonies and wedding receptions find a perfect home here. With no restrictions on suppliers, couples are invited to curate their dream celebration.

While the venue offers a little black book of contacts for guidance, it collaborates with leading UK wedding planners for stress-free planning and that touch of magic.

It’s worth noting that Histon Manor, launching as a venue in September 2023, limits weddings to just five per year, ensuring an exclusive and newly discovered gem for couples seeking a distinctive wedding experience.
