10 Great Oxford Wedding Photo Ops6 November 2019
Oxford is filled with beautiful places. When selecting a wedding venue, keep in mind its location as you may want to feature some of these incredible places in your wedding photos…
1. Radcliffe Camera
This iconic Palladian-style domed library makes for an incredible photo opportunity anyway, but imagine it as a bride and groom! Look around for venues near this iconic building.
2. Ashmolean Museum
Another iconic spot for photos in Oxford is the Ashmolean Museum. The museum covers everything from ancient to modern art and is as beautiful inside as it is outside.
3. Oxford Castle
If you want something a little more ancient, Oxford Castle is also a beautiful feature to the city. It’s a large, partly ruined Norman medieval castle built in around the 12th-13th centuries.
4. Bodleian Library
This is the main research library for the University of Oxford and it’s one of the oldest libraries in Europe. It has over 12 million books making it the second largest in Britain! Great if you’re both bookworms!
5. Oxford Botanic Garden
Perhaps you would prefer a walk in the park, and wedding photos surrounded by nature? Oxford’s Botanic Garden is just the place, especially if you’re tying the knot in Autumn!
6. Bridge of Sighs
Supposedly named ‘the Bridge of Sighs’ due to students sighing as they went across on their way to exams, this beautiful feature joins two parts of Hertford College over New College Lane.
7. The Covered Market
This sounds like an odd place for a photo or two, but the Covered Market is such a gem to walk down hand in hand with its quaint little stores and exposed oak beams above!
8. Port Meadow
This meadow is an ancient area of grazing land, still used for horses and cattle, and according to legend, has never been ploughed – at least for 4,000 years. It’s a beautiful stretch of countryside beside the River Thames.
9. The Headington Shark
If you’re from Oxford, you will have most likely spotted this or at least heard of it! The Headington Shark is a very random-looking monument on the roof of a house commissioned by the house owner and local radio presenter Bill Heine! You can’t not pose in front of this one…
10. The Divinity School
And finally, we have the Divinity School, a medieval building and the oldest surviving purpose-built building for university use. This is certainly a spot for an inside wedding photo if the weather isn’t too good – the interiors are the best!
