    Prestigious Museum

    Having such a beautiful and prestigious museum so close to us is fantastic, and working at the Ashmolean is always a pleasure for our team. Working in such a unique venue is something the team really enjoy, and the events are always so much fun to work at. We look forward to the next event at the Ashmolean

    It has an air of magic about it!

    The Ashmolean is a beautiful venue to work as a photographer!

    You have such a vast selection of options as backdrops from the galleries, roof space as well as the wonderful frontage... You also have Oxford right outside to wonder off with couples. It has an air of magic about it and the team work perfectly around the public access to set up ready for the couple's wedding day! It's a little different to a typical wedding venue and I think that's its charm!
