A special day in a unique wedding venue

Set in the heart of the 'city of the dreaming spires', the Bodleian Libraries are a historic venue steeped in romance and elegance. 

Some of our grandest rooms are licensed for civil weddings and civil partnerships, all in Oxford's historic Bodleian Library: Divinity School, Convocation House and Chancellor's Court. Whether you want a small and intimate ceremony, or a jubilant celebration with all of your friends and family, the Bodleian Libraries will provide the most magnificent backdrop to your wedding day.

The Bodleian's Weddings team recognize that no two weddings are the same, and will help to provide a friendly and professional service, tailoring your day to suit your budget and tastes.
