Perfect wedding venue in the heart of the City of Oxford – ‘Rhodes House’

I just wanted to share with you a great venue that was recommended to me by a colleague, the acclaimed photography Glen Mitchell which I recently visited.

It was an amazing experience as the Event Manager, Isabelle was so professional and the warmth you felt on entering made one feel at ease which is so important for couples when choosing their venue.

The City of Oxford

A real hidden gem situated in the heart of City of Oxford, is Rhodes House a venue steeped in history which can be yours for the day.

The Entrance to Rhodes House in OxfordFrom the onset Rhodes House oozes beauty as you enter through the coliseum of pillars where you are greeted by a cheerful Porter.

You then enter through the Rotunda which is a sacred room where in the centre of the floor is a circular slab quarried from the Matopos Hills near where Mr Cecil Rhodes grave is.    The whole of Rhodes Houses offers the perfect setting for your wedding day celebrations whether it is 150 or merely a more intimate wedding for 60 guests.     Its range of rooms from the entrance through the Rotunda opening into the Parkin Vestibule where the three main rooms are accessible, being the Milner Hall to the Jameson Room to the Beit Room and all have a story to tell.

The Walled Gardens at Rhodes House in Oxford

Then, the bonus of Rhodes House you can step outside into possible some of the best kept gardens which are typically English and I am told in the summer are just a sea of color and fragrance.

This secluded walled garden, which catches the sun from early morning to late evening, is perfect.   In fact, you can even erect a marquee structure.

This venue is one of those hidden gems for the ‘special’ occasion.   

The only stipulation of using the venue is that you use of their preferred caterers of which you have a handful to choose from to suit your budget and taste.

It doesn’t offer any accommodation but within Oxford you have an array of hotels and Universities offering accommodation.

So, take a look at the website and just remember to mention where you heard about it.
