With the Chapel at its heart, and with a tradition of life-long relationships, Pembroke is happy to host weddings and ceremonies for current and former members.

Pembroke is an excellent place for these events, and they are a very important part of our shared community life. If you have links with Pembroke, please do consider it for your wedding or ceremony.

The College policy is to host weddings, Ceremonies and receptions for current and former members, and those with close links to the College.

We welcome:

  • All Fellows
  • The children of current Fellows (including Emeritus and Bye)
  • All members of College (current and old)
  • All current staff
  • The children of current staff

Weddings in Chapel happen at the discretion of the Dean, and the use of the Hall for a reception requires the permission of the Fellows in the College Meeting.

The College does not charge for Chapel Services (although donations to the College Charity - Pembroke House - are welcome). For Civil Ceremonies statutory charges apply, and are payable to the Registrar.

It is good to plan ahead, particularly if you are looking for a Summer Saturday, as we aim to have only one such event on any given day and it can get quite booked up. We have an experienced team available to assist you with the special planning of your unique day.

If you are interested in booking a wedding, please do contact Nina Rhodes, the Catering and Events Manager at or call her on 01223-765964 to check availability and talk through your options. Further details are available by downloading the wedding brochure.
