Weddings dates are released four times per year with the available dates being twelve - fourteen months in advance. This ensures that the Chaplaincy office have a full schedule of College events and projects, and reflects the fact that we are a University Chaplaincy rather than a parish or commercial venue. The Chapel is a historic building and as such may occasionally be in need of maintenance and repairs at short notice, and College demands can be unpredictable.
The hire of the Chapel for a wedding should not interfere with normal College life, and as such there are certain times when this service is not normally offered, e.g. weekdays, during graduation, open days or examinations. Our commitment is to offer up to twelve Saturdays per year, to provide a maximum of twenty weddings per year with ceremonies at 12pm and 4pm.
Please be aware that it can take up to three months to complete the legal preliminaries, and that the Weddings Coordinator is not available outside term-time.
We have the following dates available for weddings in 2017 & 2018:
Saturday 7th October 2017 at 12pm and 4pm

There will be three further release dates for weddings in 2018:

Monday 22 May 2017 for weddings from August to September 2018
Monday 2 October 2017 for weddings from October to November 2018
(due to high demand for the Chapel we are unable to offer any weddings during the month of December)
Release dates are subject to change, therefore please ensure that you check this webpage for any updates.
The dates we are able to offer are limited by College events and staff availability so those displayed here are the only ones we are able to book. If you are looking further in advance we recommend that you have several options for preferred dates as these will be taken into account in our planning, but it does not mean that we will be able to offer them.
