Best wedding venues in Cambridge
Cambridge is a wonderful wedding location, elegant, romantic and steeped in history. There are lots of fantastic venues, ranging from chic hotels to manor houses, country mills and university colleges. You can even get hitched on a luxury boat cruise on the river. A Cambridge wedding guarantees you’ll have a fabulous wedding album!
Spoilt for choice with venues
The day you and your fiancé tie the knot is one of the most important days of your life and to make it a truly memorable one, I would consider one of Cambridge’s colleges as your venue of choice.
Magdalene College has been a fashionable wedding location for many years. Situated in the centre of Cambridge, these hallowed halls are perfect for a civil ceremony followed by a champagne reception. The service and attention to detail is second to none and the college also offers highly competitive wedding packages.
But if a college is not your style and you prefer an attractive gazebo set in beautiful landscaped gardens, then the Hotel Felix is for you! It caters for weddings of varying size, up to a maximum of 150 guests, offering a choice of settings and rooms for the reception.
Fairy-tale venues just outside the city
Just on the outskirts of Cambridge you’ll find another of my top picks, The Old Hall. This idyllic five-star country retreat caters to small, intimate ceremonies but can also host up to 250 guests for an evening reception. The building is set in magnificent grounds and has stunning views of Ely Cathedral. But it’s a pricey alternative. I went to a celebrity wedding there last year and was rubbing shoulders with some of our top sportsmen and women – it’s that kind of place!
There’s also something really magical about a waterside wedding venue. I think you will agree when you see The Sheene Mill Hotel! This former mill house, just a 15-minute drive from Cambridge, is located on the River Mel, nestled against stunning backdrops.Whatever the season, it provides the perfect setting!
