The place is breathtaking, with such an awe-inspiring sense of history and space. I recommend it to all couples in the area looking for somewhere really special to celebrate their weddings!

The Ashmolean offers a wealth of different spaces, each presenting its own unique and romantic backdrop. Whether you are considering a small and intimate ceremony, an Oxford city elopement, or a luxury wedding reception, we can help you realise your dream.
As a COVID-secure accredited venue, we are experienced at helping you assess the needs and comfort of your guests and can help with your pre-event guest communication and managing guests sensitively on the day.
Yes. We are committed to providing full and equal access to Ashmolean spaces for everyone. There is a level access route from the pavement outside the museum to the front door and we have accessible toilets.
Celebratory confetti throwing is permissible on the forecourt after the ceremony. Our event staff will work with you, your photographer, and guests to arrange this. We use faux candles to protect the museum, its collections, and your guests.
Over the years we have developed relationships with trusted partners to support events at the Museum. This means we can offer our clients a curated list of suppliers and creatives who share our values and meet our high standards.
If you do have a preferred supplier who is not currently on our list, we are happy to discuss this with you.
