The Bodleian Libraries,

set in the heart of the dreaming spires, is a historic venue steeped in romance and elegance.  The Bodleian now offers the chance for couples to enjoy the magnificent rooms, whether it be an intimate ceremony or jubilant celebration, on the most magical and memorable day of their lives. 

Upon entering the Old Bodleian,

you are welcomed with the warm stone walls surrounding the Old Schools Quadrangle, with their intricate detail lit up by the beaming natural sunlight. The Divinity School is the grandest room in the Old Bodleian Library, and leads from the Quad. Completed in 1488, it is a masterpiece of late gothic architecture with a magnificent stone carved ceiling. Adjoining the Divinity School, Convocation House is a 17th-century building that was constructed as a meeting place for the University’s supreme legislative body. It features a fan-vaulted ceiling, fine woodwork and fixed wooden benches providing chapel style seating for your guests. 

No two weddings are the same

at the Bodleian and our Events Team provides a friendly and personal service which meets the highest professional standards. We will help you tailor your special day to suit your budget and tastes; and make it a truly magical day.

We have three rooms

which are licensed for civil weddings and civil partnerships, all in Oxford's historic Bodleian Library: the Divinity School, Convocation House and the Chancellor's Court.
