About The Dolphin Hotel

Maybe you’ve got your heart set on a big white wedding, or maybe you and your partner are dabbling with the idea of eloping quietly, just the two of you. Either way, you won’t be disappointed at The Dolphin Hotel in St Ives, Cambridgeshire. Nestled on the banks of the Great Ouse, the hotel boasts views of marvellous meadows, the meandering river, and an exceptional 15th century bridge. Better yet, you can arrive to your wedding by boat if you wish, for a truly memorable entrance. Alongside those killer views, The Dolphin Hotel also offers modern accommodation, including 20 riverside rooms complete with en-suite bathrooms. 

Not only are there 47 standard rooms and 20 executive rooms, meaning there is ample space for your guests to stay once celebrations are over, there are also two beautiful bridal suites. After dancing up to bed, you and your guests will be able to reconvene in the morning for a post-wedding debrief. 

There are a number of wedding packages to choose from, which can accommodate up to 120 people. Each package is named after some of the beloved and famous villages along the Saints Highway, and includes a wedding planner, the bridal suite and discounted accommodation for your wedding guests. Not to mention various add-ons, including a welcome drink, tables, chairs, and table cloths. There are also a number of menus to choose between.

If you're after a more casual wedding meal, you can opt for a buffet and enjoy a mezze of caprese salad, honey mustard glazed sausages and garlic and rosemary potatoes. For something slightly more formal, choose a three-course sit down meal and indulge in goat’s cheese and red onion tarts to start, followed by a roast chicken dinner and white chocolate and passion fruit cheesecake to finish. There are also a number of yummy evening food options to pick from, including pizza and pasties, making sure you’ve got energy to party all night.
