Cambridge University Weddings
Beautiful Wedding Photography at the Cambridge Colleges
Thank you for finding my wedding photography and films. On this page I am showcasing photos from every Cambridge University College that I have photographed a wedding at. Cambridge is a special city for me – I was born here and although I live a few miles away it feels like home.
CAMBRIDGE COLLEGE WEDDING PHOTOS
Each college has its own special character and history and this gives Cambridge a wonderful variety dotted across the city. As a Cambridge wedding photographer I have great memories from many of them. I have photographed a wedding mariachi band at Robinson, Stephen Hawking at Downing, Sir David Attenborough at Clare and so many wonderful couples from across the world.
King’s College Wedding
King’s College chapel is like our Eiffel Tower. Its spires sneak into the wedding photographs of many couples who have been married at other colleges and wedding venues in the city. It has an ancient romance to it and announces that you’re in Cambridge.
Sidney Sussex College Wedding
Sidney Sussex College is in the heart of the city and I love that you feel the bustle of the streets in certain parts of the grounds. Once inside you’re as secluded as can be and it’s the perfect venue for a classically Cambridge wedding. The chapel is stunning and the gorgeous grounds provide so many opportunities for photographs.
Downing College Wedding
Downing College has some of the most beautiful trees and architecture of all of the colleges. It is also situated just a short walk from The Church of Our Lady and the English Martyrs. You can see its spire climbing above a row of trees from the college grounds and if you wish to be married in church and then party at Downing this is a great option.
St. John’s College Wedding
St. John’s College is one of the most beautiful and romantic settings in the city. It is home to the world-famous Bridge Of Sighs (one of them anyhow), gorgeous banks of the River Cam, beautiful cloisters and its spectacular chapel. This is the college I take friends to when they visit Cambridge.
Queens’ College Wedding
Queens’ College is one of the most iconic colleges of the university, thanks to the beautiful and intriguing Mathematical Bridge. This city landmark is wonderful photographed from the bridge on Silver Street – as well as from a punt on the River Cam. The grounds of the college offers classic views of the river as well as beautiful courtyards.
Pembroke College Wedding
Pembroke is a college I have only visited once – to photograph a wonderfully intimate wedding in one of the beautiful function rooms. After the ceremony we took pictures in the college gardens and then later around the city for a little while.
Selwyn College Wedding
Here are some photos from a recent wedding at Selwyn College.
“Chris was our wedding photographer and he also took two sets of engagement photos for us, (one in Cambridge and one in Paris), and we cannot say enough wonderful things about him, both as a person and as a photographer. We absolutely loved our photos, as did our family and friends. On the day itself, Chris put everyone at ease and captured particularly special, unposed images of the children and older folks who attended. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to everyone.”
R&I, married at Christ’s College, Cambridge.
“Chris is an enormously talented photographer and was a wonderful presence at our wedding… incredibly accommodating but calm and unobtrusive at all times, he took the most amazing and natural shots, whether in documentary format, more staged moments. Even working with some tough constraints in the ceremony and difficult lighting at dinner and the party afterwards, he has produced pictures that are nothing short of spectacular and which look both contemporary and timeless. We couldn’t recommend him more highly.”
J&B, married at St John’s College, Cambridge.
“The most wonderful photographer and videographer, beautiful images and the kindest soul. I can’t recommend him more highly. Wonderful in all ways!”
K&R, married in Grantchester and Trinity Hall College.
The first good photograph I took was of Bob Dylan. It was with a simple 35mm film camera at a music festival many years ago. The picture was just a snapshot, but it captured the spirit of the day – which is what it’s all about.
Photography and music have always been linked for me as I spent many years photographing concerts and musicians for a newspaper. All through this time I was learning how to use a camera and how to photograph people and it was a wonderful way to learn.
Today I’m a wedding photographer and videographer and could not be happier. It would be a pleasure to join you on your wedding adventure and to document your special day.
