Perfect setting
Thank you and all the staff at Oxford Town Hall for making our wedding on Sunday such a wonderful day. All of our family and friends had a fantastic evening and Katie and I are very grateful for all of your help and kindness. Oxford Town Hall is the perfect setting for a wedding and the two rooms that we had made it such a special occasion and one that we'll never forget.

A big thank you
A big thank you for all your help in making our wedding day go so smoothly! Your staff at the town hall were very welcoming on the day especially one who helped made me feel relaxed and and even helped with my train on my dress and my veil. He also helped with opening the doors! He was so sweet and made such an effort. If you find out who he is please pass our thanks on to him, I really did appreciate it

Beautiful venue
The Town Hall was a beautiful venue for our wedding. The extra Christmas decorations made it feel very festive. In all aspects of the planning, Sukh was really great, she was attentive and quick in responding to my questions. Mike, the registrar was great, he made us feel comfortable and relaxed. We had such a great day at the Town Hall and I am really glad that we chose it as the venue for our wedding ceremony. Thank you!
