Between the all-in-one location, a venue that works for any style or theme and a team that says they’re dedicated to brides, grooms and fabulous local weddings, Cambridge Hotel and Conference Centre offers a great choice for a stress-free wedding day.
Let us explain….
Your wedding team…
When you get married at Cambridge Hotel and Conference Center you’ll have an entire team dedicated to your wedding day.
You’ll work with one of their experience banquet managers whose job is to oversee reception details such as your set-up, the timeline for your meal, and making sure that enough staff is present the night of.
Your dinner menu is headed up by their Chef, who has several menus that you can choose from. If you don’t see something you love, the team can create a customized menu with your must-haves.
Last but certainly not least, you’ll work with Nelia, the Special Events Manager at Cambridge Hotel and Conference Center. She’s been working in the industry for nine years and is your go to person for all of your wedding questions. She’s there to guide you through all of your planning, from the timing of your cocktail hour, dinner and late night menu to helping you choose your ideal menu. You’ll also do your menu tasting at the hotel and she’ll work with you on the entire set up of the ballroom. She can also recommend some great DJ’s, decorators, or any other vendors that you might need.
Nelia also acts as a liaison for all of your outside vendors. So, while your busy with all of your other wedding details, she’ll work out a timeline with the decorator; what items they need and anything else that might come up. She basically takes care of all of the details that are usually really time-consuming, leaving you to relax and actually enjoy the wedding planning process.
And Nelia absolutely loves her role, “My favourite part of my job is getting to see all of the planning come together and knowing that I had a hand in making their day special”

“We work with all sorts of themes and styles but one thing that our couples have in common is that they’re usually fun, local, sweet, down-to-earth people who are obviously in love.”

“The Cambridge Hotel is a great place to face your wedding reception! I had my Wedding Reception here on September 25th 2015. The prices were reasonable and the service was great, all the staff were fun and helpful and the food was great (we had so many guests telling us how amazing the food was afterward). Nelia the event manager who was in charge of my reception was wonderful from the very beginning, both my husband and I really thought she was great, we were down to two venues and she was big part of the reason we chose this venue and I am glad we did. On the day of our wedding I was getting ready in the hotel room when my flowers arrived and they were awful, not even close to what I had ordered. I called my florist to ask for an explanation and to see if she could fix this but she had no intent to fix the problem. I decided to not worry as I did not want to ruin the day but my bridesmaids did tell Nelia about the problem. As soon as Nelia heard, she came up with some champagne and OJ for us and asked to see the flowers. One of the things I wanted was an all rose bouquet for my bouquet but I got a mix of carnations and hydrangeas and two roses in the bouquet. Nelia called their florist Kim (From the Creative Bride) and made me my rose bouquet in time for me to leave for the ceremony! It was perfect! Nelia (and Kim) really went that extra mile to make my wedding day amazing! If you want an amazing wedding reception from a team who really cares about you and your wedding day then book here. – Jana & David, September 2016”
