Several rooms are licensed for civil ceremonies.

We know the sheer amount of planning that goes into making your one special day special.  Our Wedding Co-ordinator will live and breathe your wedding with you, we’ll be on the end of the phone whenever you need reassurance or just want to double and triple check details.  Our eye for detail, professionalism and years of experience will make sure your guests take away as many fond memories as you.

For the ultimate in relaxation, we have everything you need to chill out before or after your big day.  Head to the spa and let our spa therapists work their magic as they massage, ease, soothe, primp, preen and pamper you into a state of wonderfulness that goes way beyond relaxation.  Take a refreshing dip in the pool or just sit back in the bar, sip on a cappuccino and watch the world go by.

Nothing was too much for them

By Charlene & Laura, on 03 Nov 2014

Beth was fantastic and always let us know as soon as practicable of any changes and was very accommodating when we changed things on a regular occasion Very friendly people behind the desk All positive feedback from all the guests who said the food was delicious. Beth and Hannah were fantastic for us an made the day so much less stressful. All staff involved in the day were very professional and helpful an we could not have asked for anymore from the staff Could not have anymore from them they made the day so much easier to run and made sure there was as little stress for us as possible. Nothing was too much for them.

Happy with Everything

By Bryan and Alison Kearney, on 01 Oct 2014

We are both so happy with how everything went. James was just a star. He was so helpful. You all, especially you, made our day just perfect. I need to send an email to the Belfry to big you up, and James of cause. Could you give me a one of the Belfry's 'big-wig' email address so I can contact them on our return from honeymoon. Once again. My wife and I (lol, I just love saying that), want to thank you from the bottom of hearts. I know you think your only doing your job, but to us, you did your firm proud.


By Sharon Hills, on 06 Feb 2014

We got married in 2012 and had the most amazing day. The staff were fab. Our wedding planner was amazing. The catered really well for me and my veggie husband. Our wedding suite was great and fitted me and my three bridesmaids and my mum in it as we got ready. The room was set up beautifully and the day ran so smoothly. The hot buffet in the eve was excellent but most of our guests were to full to eat much. The courtyard was lovely and was an amazing backdrop for our photos. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wishing for an amazing wedding. It was very well priced and loads of rooms for our guests to stay in.

Very special Venue not 4 but 5 stars!

By Karina & Tom, on 18 Dec 2012

We had the best day, everyone has been talking about the high quality of the food. Our Wedding Planner was an absolute star, ensuring we kept to time and made it so special. Thank you to all of the staff who worked on the day, couldn't have imagined a better day.

By Louise & Mark, on 15 Dec 2012

We had the most amazing day! Every thing went beautifully, and without a hitch! We would like to say thank you to all staff and every body else that was involved. The sun was shining and we have had our guests phoning us to say how beautiful and perfect every thing was! I wouldn't have changed any thing! The evening buffet especially was fantastic!

Great Venue and very friendly

By Anna, on 15 Dec 2012

I stayed for 2 nights my bridesmaids (first night just to relax before the wedding!) and the service we received was outstanding. Spa girls very really good and the treatment just fantastic – worth every penny we spent. As I booked the Venue I received 20% off the spa treatment too! The meal we had in the evening was amazing and again the staff and service was great. The reception staff were extremely helpful when it came to helping us with bags and wedding decorations and nothing was too difficult for them and finally a MASSIVE thank you to our Wedding Co-ordinator and Events Manager! Constant contact with us to make sure everything was booked and taken care of in the lead up to the wedding and for ensuring that everything was organised and ran smoothly on the day, which of course it did! At no point did anything not go how it was planned and the rooms etc were set up amazingly! You are both a credit to the hotel. All our guest had an amazing time and were so impressed with the hotel, service and food they received! It's difficult to put into words how happy me and Kenny are that we chose this hotel to hold our special day and will definitely be recommending this Venue! xxx


By Anna & Daniel, on 22 Nov 2012

We are back from an amazing honeymoon after a wonderful and magical wedding, we are slowly coming back to reality! On behalf of myself and Daniel I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all Oxford Belfry staff for your kindness and your professional view towards the planning of our wedding. You made each step of the planning run smoothly and put myself and Daniel's mind at rest. I also know my parents were impressed with the smooth running of the wedding planning and on the big day to. I can honestly say that all the hotel side of our big day I had know worries about the organisation and smooth running of our wedding both leading up to the wedding and on the day, so thank you for making it stress free!. To all the staff on the day thank you to you all as, what a professional and friendly team they were. We had lots of comments from guests about the food. "The food was not only yummy but it was a good temperature for eating" "The hotel was very child friendly and was lovely that the children were served first, this worked well" One of my best memories of our special day was walking into the wedding breakfast room as Mr & Mrs Brown. I was overwhelmed that all these people were here for us and how this room I had left not even half ready on Friday evening had turned into a wonderfully presented room just how i had wanted it to look, so thank you.

The most well oganised weddings, with staff that care.

By C Langley, on 28 May 2003

My friends got married here in Nov 2002. The wedding coordinator at the hotel was more than efficient, he cared. He took care of all of the arrangements with the bride and was reassuring and thorough. An excellent day with superb food, would recommend to anyone who is looking for the perfect venue.
