Somerville College is delighted to host wedding receptions for members of the College community – which is to say alumni, students and staff. Unfortunately, we cannot at present offer our wedding service to external guests.

With its picturesque gardens and secluded courtyards, Somerville College is the perfect setting for romantic and elegant weddings. Whether you and your partner want an intimate and informal occasion or something grand and sophisticated, our team will work closely with you to create the perfect day for you to remember forever.

Drawing on Somerville’s long tradition of inclusivity, we are proud to offer a comprehensive range of services, from civil ceremonies and civil partnerships to humanist weddings, marriage vow renewals and wedding anniversaries. Furthermore, our location in the centre of Oxford means you’re mere minutes away from the ancient heart of the city, as well as picturesque Port Meadow, so your guests can enjoy the best that Oxford has to offer.
