THE OLD HALL ELY

If luxury and romance are on your wedding wish list, check out this Cambridgeshire venue. You’re sure to be impressed from the moment you arrive down the winding driveway and catch your first sight of the Jacobean Manor House and immaculate grounds. With ten acres to explore, there’s plenty of picture-perfect spots for romantic photos. Step inside and be prepared for more stop-stare moments. The interior oozes style with luxury furnishings, bright colours, patterns, textures and antiques to complement the house. Set within a mile of the heart of historic Ely with 16 individually designed bedrooms and views of the city’s cathedral, it’s an idyllic big-day retreat.

In spring and summertime, ceremonies are held in the ornate, outdoor pavilion overlooking the lakes and gardens while in the autumn and winter the grand Orangery provides a magical setting with its floor-to-ceiling glass panels, oak beams and wood burner. Both can seat up to 165 people. There’s a host of versatile spaces for the post-vows celebrations too including a bar adjoining the Orangery and terraces and the topiary courtyard with fountains and outdoor seating, not to mention a personalised gin and cocktail bar! The permanent marquee is the perfect place to party with chandeliers, a bar and its own private terrace. The black and white dancefloor adjoining the marquee is a standout feature and is kept hidden to wow your guests when it’s time for the first dance. With star lights on the ceiling and a large stage you and your loved ones can celebrate in style.

We love… the complimentary honeymoon suite complete with four poster bed, bathroom with roll top bath and walk-in shower.

Based in Suffolk, The Little Horse Picture Booth provides great entertainment for all your guests. Built into a 1960's horse box, it's a standout attraction with three different packages to suit you and a new signature range of props. Two prints are produced within seconds, one to put into a customised guest book and the other for loved ones to keep, plus there's an online gallery, so everyone can have a memory to treasure. And if the wedding is taking place off the beaten track, there's no need to worry about power either, as the eco-friendly photo booth works off-grid.

Set in 72 acres in the heart of Cambridgeshire, Hemingford Park provided the perfect backdrop for local wedding caterer Caren Schofield of Bonito Platito to showcase her sumptuous grazing tables and big-day treats.

Inspired by the beauty of the setting, Caren pulled together a team of talented suppliers from around the region to create this stunning bridal shoot combining a subtle mix of orange, sage and natural tones along with a fun children's section bursting with bright bold colours.
