We welcome current and former members of the Hertford community back to college to celebrate their marriages or special anniversaries.
The wedding reception can be arranged in college and the ceremony in the Chapel after a consultation with the Chaplain. Once you have tied the knot you can celebrate over fizz and delicious canapes in the Quad, then pop outside for photos under the Hertford Bridge before sitting down to a delicious dinner in Hall.
Our Chapel is a beautiful space in the heart of OB Quad, and one which holds a special place in the hearts and memories of Hertford members past and present. Couples may marry in the Chapel if one or either party is a current member of college (student, staff or fellow), or a former member who has an existing or continuous link with college or Chapel.
All marriages performed in Chapel are conducted by a Special Licence which is granted at the discretion of the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Chaplain can offer guidance on the license application. There must be an existing or continuous relationship with the college to qualify for a license. Couples often come to Chapel services in the run-up to their wedding.
The capacity of the Chapel is 120 people. Please contact our Events Manager email@example.com to discuss your big day.
Fees & music
A fee of £1,000 for Chapel hire and the ceremony is payable to the college. Other fees, including those for a Special Licence, can be discussed with the Chaplain. The college has organists who are pleased to play at weddings in the Chapel – a fee of £150 is payable, or £200 if the ceremony is to be recorded.
