Set in the heart of the ‘city of the dreaming spires’, the Bodleian is situated alongside its iconic neighbours such as the infamous Radcliffe Camera, Exeter College’s enchanting walled garden, and the remarkable Sheldonian Theatre.
The Bodleian Libraries is a historic venue steeped in romance and elegance. Some of the grandest rooms at the venue are licensed for civil weddings and civil partnerships, including Divinity School, Convocation House and Chancellor’s Court. Whether you want a small and intimate ceremony or a jubilant celebration, the Bodleian Library can provide the most magnificent backdrop to your wedding day.
To romanticise your wedding even further, the Bodleian Libraries also has stunning outdoor spaces like the Old Schools Quad which can be exclusively yours for an intimate cocktail hour or a celebratory drinks reception after your wedding ceremony. There is also a picturesque spot by the Wren door which has been used to frame countless moments between couples and their loved ones.
