About Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology wedding venue

Situated in the heart of Oxford, the Ashmolean Museum offers a sumptuous setting for any occasion. Guests cannot fail to be impressed by the magnificent Neo-classical frontage, while inside, a range of beautiful spaces provide the perfect backdrop to your special day.

Our civil licence extends across the entire museum, allowing us to tailor the combination of galleries to suit your party – however large or small. We can also, where possible, incorporate any special areas of interest you may have within our collections.

Licensed for civil ceremonies, civil partnerships and wedding receptions, you can choose to host all, or just one aspect, of your celebrations with us. Surrounded by the rich collections and the magnificent architecture, choose from countless backdrops for your photographs, leaving you with unique and lasting memories of your day.

Receptions may begin in the Atrium, which is at the heart of the Museum. Providing views from the lower ground floor to the skylights in the roof, flooding the Atrium with natural light. Guests can enjoy drinks and canapes set amongst the striking statues and galleries at the base of the Atrium.

Dine in the Randolph Sculpture Gallery, this long classical room is lined with Greek and Roman sculpture providing a dazzling backdrop to your celebrations.

Dance the night away in our Vaulted Cafe, which transforms into a lively dancing space and includes a bar.

Our Dining Room and Rooftop Terrace is also available to hire privately for wedding receptions.

We're proud to say ALL of our Galleries are now licensed for civil ceremonies. Choose from an intimate ceremony in our Pre-Raphaelites or a larger ceremony in the stunning Mallett Gallery. We have also have a selection of Galleries that are suitable for 'Renewal of Vows' ceremonies.

Many thanks to all the photographers whose images we have used.

We have lost track of the number of people who have told us that our wedding had the best food of any wedding they'd been to or was the best wedding they'd attended! Everything at the Ashmolean was superlative and better than we would have ever imagined. We can't thank you...
