The Bridge Huntingdon:wedding venues in Cambridgeshire

I recently attended a family wedding at the Old Bridge Huntingdon and couldn’t be more impressed. The setting is beautiful and the staff extremely flexible and friendly. Hold your civil ceremony on the premises if you choose too. They have clearly fine-tuned the order of things and guide you with their experience to make the day go without a single stress. The covered outside area means the worry of the great British weather is also taken away from you. Great quality food and setting.
