Full Description
A wedding venue like no other. Founded in 1683 the Ashmolean is the oldest public Museum in the world. Displaying half a million years of art and history, the spaces provide a stunning backdrop for a very special occasion. All our galleries are licenced which means we can offer intimate ceremonies at any time through to impressive evening receptions, dinners and dances combined with outstanding hospitality and entertainment. The Ashmolean Museum has been inspiring minds and sharing people’s stories since 1683 and we want you to add yours. We understand that every wedding is different which is why our expert team are on hand to tailor your day. An experienced team supported by an exclusive catering partner and handpicked suppliers will bring your dream celebration to life. Whether you decide to make a grand entrance, exchange vows in the presence of loved ones, dine like royalty or party the night away, the Ashmolean offers the most magnificent backdrop to your occasion. The Ashmolean’s majestic forecourt creates an entrance to remember. Inside, the grand staircase and its stunning gilded chandelier lead your guests into the Italian Renaissance and European Art Galleries for the ceremony or drinks reception. Reminiscent of an English country house, these galleries are filled with Old Master paintings and bronze sculpture. The couple has access to their own private entrance. Celebrate the occasion in the contemporary Atrium; its soaring staircase creates a dramatic stage for speeches, dine amongst Greek and Roman statues before dancing until late or relaxing in the Museum’s vaulted Café.
