Hallmark Hotel Cambridge
For a start, the Hallmark Hotel Cambridge is the perfect choice for your dream wedding venue.

Organising an engagement shoot or a pre-wedding photo session will inspire you with ideas for the big day itself. The University of Cambridge comprises of 31 colleges, 16 of which were founded between 1284 and 1596. Many of the colleges are magnificent examples of architecture and make impressive backdrops. If you and your other half attended The University of Cambridge, this will be a truly sentimental spot to roam around and enjoy your first moments as newlyweds.
The Fitzwilliam Museum is also notable for your shot list. Built in 1816, it houses one of the greatest art collections in modern Britain. Its exterior features large columns oozing old world charm and romance.

Punting Down The River Cam
One of Cambridge’s most infamous pastimes is punting. Meaning a leisurely chauffeured punt along the River Cam is pretty much mandatory for every wedding couple! These precious and intimate moments will result in natural documentary style photos you can treasure forever.
