About De Vere Oxford Thames

Henley Road, Sandford On Thames, Oxford
Oxfordshire, OX4 4GX

As you approach the hotel the sweeping tree-lined driveway opens up to reveal the beautiful sandstone buildings, which surround the medieval barns and the grade II listed, 15th Century manor house.  Nestled within 30 acres of grounds, this charming hotel sits on the bank of the River Thames, providing the most picture perfect setting for your wedding day.

De Vere Oxford Thames boasts an enchanting riverside gazebo, licensed for outdoor ceremonies, whilst the ornate Saint John’s College Barge and quaint walled garden, provide the perfect backdrop for endless photo opportunities.

When it comes to the reception, the characterful Little Barn is the ideal setting for weddings of up to 60 guests for the day, and the evening reception. While the bright and spacious Oxford Suite allows for something a little different, with the flexibility to host up to 120 guests for a seated meal, and up to 200 guests for the evening reception.

If you are looking for something special, that still gives you a warm and welcoming feel, with endless possibilities and photo opportunities, it is hard to imagine a more perfect setting for your special day than De Vere Oxford Thames.

We would both like to say thank you to everyone involved in making our day so special. Everything was just how we wanted it and we both had such a wonderful time. Many of our guests have said what a perfect venue the hotel is and were very happy with their rooms, they were so comfortable. The staff at the hotel could not have been more helpful, polite and provided great service. Please thank the chef and the kitchen team, the food was just right and was of excellent quality.

By Glass Wedding 4th July 2015, on 30 Jan 2016

Dear Rebecca, Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help on and leading up to our big day. It was perfect, absolutely 100% perfect. Nothing went wrong and we could not have asked for more. We have had lots of great feedback from our guests, about how lovely the day was and how the venue finished it off. Although we only met towards the end of our planning process, you have been helpful, incredibly professional, willing to go that extra mile, and always had a smile on your face (which was great, especially when I had a bit of a wobble before I walked down the aisle!). Thank you again. Best wishes Becka and Nick Glass

Absolutely amazing

By Tara and Yannce 11th July 2015, on 30 Jan 2016

Hi Rebecca. I just wanted to say thank you for all your help in planning our wedding. The staff were absolutely amazing on the day and I couldn't fault any of them. Victor is a credit to your company and everyone commented on how brilliant he was. Nothing was too much and anything we needed he made happen. So once again thank you for everything and can you pass this on to your manager and victor. Tara and Yannce Reid.

By Michelle and Adrian 29th May 2015, on 30 Jan 2016

Hello Rebecca, 29th May 2015 - thanks to you and your staff for helping us to arrange and run our day for us. Firstly, thank you to everyone for making the day run so smoothly. Even from the day before, when we dropped off all our wedding stuff, to the moment we arrived the next day, the staff did everything to make sure we were happy (including printing out forgotten table names!) and that the guests were well looked after. We arrived a little early to the hotel on the day (despite me arriving to the church 40 minutes late!) but this didn't faze them at all. Unfortunately the weather wasn't as helpful and we had a bit of rain but we managed around it. Everything went so smoothly, we couldn't have asked for more. I was especially impressed that the waiting staff remembered I didn't drink alcohol and kept me supplied with elderflower fizz all afternoon!

Thank you for making our wedding day so memorable. We truly had a wonderful time and it would not have been complete without the organisation and team work from all at the Four Pillars. We are so impressed by the professionalism of your staff especially Rebecca, Mihai, Octavian and Constantine.

Beautiful wedding day
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs M, on 09 Dec 2014

Right from the beginning e.g. from booking, Sharon handled all correspondence and organisation in a friendly and efficient manner. On all occasions at the Hotel staff were welcoming and friendly. All of our wishes and requests were embraced and accurately carried out on our special day. Nathalie, who helped with setting up the room and barge was amazingly helpful, and my Father greatly appreciated the provision of coffee during the after- noon ! We both felt relaxed and confident that the day would run smoothly and it did. Andre was clearly very experienced in these matters and guided us through the day impeccably. We both feel very blessed to have had such a memorable and beautiful Wedding Day, greatly aided by you all. Thank you very, very much.
