Wedding venues
in Oxford and around

Bookmark and Share
There are plenty of wedding venues in Oxford. Oxford is a wonderful city, with all those ancient buildings...

Although it is a modern city, the city centre has a special atmosphere, to me is like being back in the time, in a different world. So I think it is ideal for a special day such as your wedding, even if you don't live there. In case you are looking for wedding venues to choose from, here you can find some of the venues where I myself have played in Oxford.

Please, notice that I have no business association with these people, I'm listing here some wedding venues where I've seen personally, just to give you a few more ideas, different styles, sizes and prices.

I hope you find this information helpful and it makes you remember of me. Check my wedding music page for some ideas, photos and videos (then book your wedding music, I'd be happy to play for you).

Civil wedding venues

Oxford Town Hall
This is of course, only for civil weddings, celebrated in the Assembly Room or in another room. There are several rooms of different sizes. You can also hire one of them for your reception only, if you celebrate a religious wedding in a church nearby. Here you can see the Assembly Room, with beautiful wooden floor and wall panels, a big marble fireplace and paintings of important people.

Ashmolean Museum
Did you know? You can hire this world famous museum and have your civil wedding ceremony and your reception in this awesome venue, surrounded by antiquities and art masterworks! (and you'd also support the museum). The ceremony is celebrated upstairs in one of the museum rooms, the Mallett Gallery, with paintings, sculptures and even a staircase for the bride's grand entry with the Wedding March! For your reception, you'd find yourself in the middle of the Randolph Sculpture Gallery in company of Greek and Roman many centuries-old statues. You can also have a full meal.

Woodstock Town Hall
Not far from Oxford is this lovely historic town. This venue is quite small, so it's good if you want to organize a civil ceremony and your reception for a small number of guests. Here is the reception room, with embroidered panels on the walls illustrating Woodstock history since its origin.

Colleges for weddings

Besides many other wedding venues, in Oxford it is possible to celebrate your wedding in one of the colleges, they have a chapel, reception rooms and gardens (especially nice in summer), so you can have your ceremony, either religious or civil, and your reception all in one place. Some are very small, others are very large, so they can suit all tastes and needs.

Christ Church Cathedral
This is the most important college but is also primarily a Cathedral. The church is very large, as well as the gardens. What you see here is the Masters' Garden. This is suitable for those who want a huge venue, very large church and garden for a big number of guests.

Oriel College

One of the oldest colleges, quite small, off the High Street. It seems that it owes its name to an oriel window (in the picture). There is a chapel a garden, like all colleges, for a religious ceremony and a reception in a room or in the garden. They cater for special events and have their own wine cellar, menus and wine list on their website.

Civil weddings can be celebrated also in hotels, restaurants and other buildings, provided that they have been licensed. Ask them, you may be able to have both ceremony and reception at the same place, if you like.
