  • Can I get married at Cambridge University?
    A slightly confusing answer that is both yes and no.  First thing to note is that Cambridge University is not a single site or building.  It is a collective made up of schools, departments and Colleges that spread across the city.  However, regardless of your faith, race, or orientation, some Colleges do have civil licences and it is possible to have a civil ceremony in a Cambridge College.  Celebrant-led ceremonies can take place in any location, at any time and they can take any format or style you want with content that's special and meaningful to you; we strongly recommend discussing your requirements with your chosen venue.
  • Can I get married in a Cambridge College chapel like King’s College?
    If you studied at Cambridge University then potentially, yes. However, some Colleges do have certain criteria in place, such as getting married within a set number of years after graduating, so contact your College direct for more information. If you did not study at the University, it still possible to exchange vows in beautiful College room (or gardens) where a civil licence has been granted. Contemplate exchanging nuptials either in a stunning garden or a wonderfully romantic room.
