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 3pm.
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 2018:
Saturday 27th January at 3pm
Saturday 3rd February at 3pm

(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, however we may be able to consider additional dates, please contact us to discuss this further. 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.
