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.

The Ashmolean is a beautiful venue to work as a photographer!Sent on 06/07/2020
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!
