OVERVIEW

What could be more special for you and your family than celebrating the most important day of your life at The Oxford Belfry?

You’ve spent months talking through all your plans with your family and friends and have put everything in place for your wedding day with the help of our experienced wedding coordinator. With her help, you’ve chosen your wedding theme, the balloon decorations, the flower arrangements and colours that are special to you, your bridesmaids and groomsmen, the wedding cake exactly styled to reflect the day. You’ve tried and selected your favourite food, booked the hairdresser and make up artist, chosen your bridal suite, and booked your honeymoon. The day has arrived.

Your resplendent guests have arrived at The Oxford Belfry (some have stayed the night before) with their stunning hats and fascinators, bow ties and cravats, and they are eagerly awaiting your arrival. They are sitting, chatting in the sunshine, on white covered chairs draped with pretty coloured bows, arranged in rows - neatly lined up in front of our courtyard gazebo, decorated with beautiful fragrant flowers. 

You arrive in your vintage Rolls Royce perhaps, nervous and excited at the same time, stepping out on to our pristine red carpet waiting for you at our main entrance. A few steps, a few last minute adjustments to your bridal gown, and you carefully make your way towards the landscaped courtyard and your groom, waiting nervously by the registrar. A broad smile escapes as he sees you for the first time that day.

Your charming marriage ceremony, perhaps with some music and words from one of your guests, is conducted by the registrar. You suppress a tear or two as the emotion spills over, not for the first time that day…

As the ceremony comes to a close, your events manager is poised with his team, ready to serve the first bubbles of your day to you and your guests. The celebrations commence with The Oxford Belfry team firmly in control of the timing and arrangements that you have carefully planned together. Canapés are served along with the drinks, while you and your husband pose for photographs around the hotel grounds. Sitting on a pretty bench perhaps, sneaking a kiss under the canopy of the leaf laden trees, with the hotel’s green lawns and Oxfordshire countryside stretching out behind you.

The wedding breakfast follows in your wedding suite. You’ve chosen salmon and cured salmon with a celeriac and horseradish salad followed by baked breast of chicken with sautéed cabbage and bacon with a Madeira jus served with Dauphinoise potatoes and seasonal vegetables, and to finish, Bailey’s cheesecake with banana cream. The courses are served immaculately – you hardly notice the hotel team deftly serving, moving around the room easily – and the food is delicious. Your guests, perhaps new to the hotel, comment on the quality and taste and ease of service. All the time, your events manager is keeping an eye on the room, maintaining the timings, responding to any last minute special requests, ensuring that your day is running smoothly. The success of your day is the most important thing to him.

The fun of wedding speeches follows with more bubbles served in readiness for the toasts. Your guests mingle, relax and enjoy themselves, spilling out onto the sun baked terrace adjoining the suite, and you can reflect on the success of the day so far, knowing that there is more to come with the evening’s entertainment – perhaps a band and a disco – and when more friends join you to celebrate your wedding day.

The wedding suite is transformed by the hotel team into your evening party venue in readiness for dancing, singing and celebrations. Steaming hot buffet food and drinks are served keeping all your guests content, with perhaps some bacon rolls at midnight to round off your evening.

It’s been a fantastic day. The events manager has worked hard to ensure that all your plans made with your wedding coordinator have come to life, but you’ve hardly noticed the hotel team as they’ve moved around happily serving food and drinks, managing your wedding day in a calm, professional and friendly manner.

Your wedding day at The Oxford Belfry has been exactly how you planned and how you imagined it would be.
