Harris Manchester hosts a number of weddings each year along with other celebatory events. We are a small and welcoming college and pride ourselves on being one of the few Oxford colleges to support and cater for same-sex weddings. We begin by discussing your ideas for the day, as each event is individual in both design and budget and we want to make sure we accommodate all of your requirements.

The college's Chapel seats c. 140 guests and is itself a beautiful venue for the service. Read more about our Chapel here.

Each event has the dedicated and personal attention of our award winning chef, Steve Ramli-Davies. He, along with our Conference Manager & High Steward, Nick Jefferies and Domestic Bursar, Clare Davis, will be involved throughout the planning process to ensure we deliver the most enjoyable and memorable day. Our Chaplain, Rev Dr Claire Macdonald, is pleased to work with couples to develop a service - and to identify a minister - that suits them. 

For services in the Chapel, and receptions in the college, please contact Nick Jefferies to make an initial enquiry at

Please note Harris Manchester College Chapel can seat up to 140 guests and our baronial dining hall up to 120 guests.
