Wedding Receptions in Oxford

Congratulations on your engagement, and thank you for considering The Folly for your Wedding Reception.

Our unique riverside location in central Oxford offers a beautiful and romantic venue for your celebration.  

Our restaurant can seat up to 70 guests dining, or up to 100 guests for a drinks reception with canapés. The outdoor river terrace offers a spectacular location for a riverside drinks reception.  

What a perfect day! You have done us proud and our wedding reception was everything we hoped it would be and more - much more!

We will work closely with you to make sure your special day is exactly how you have imagined. You will be looked after by our Wedding Co-Ordinator, Thia White, who will discuss your wishes and requirements with you, help you plan your event, and make sure everything runs smoothly on the day.

We offer various catering options ranging from five course dining experiences to informal buffets. We also have an extensive canapé menu and a variety of drinks options. 

You are welcome to arrange decorations and entertainment to your requirements, and we are happy to assist you with this process. If you are looking to carry your celebration on in to the evening, we can offer you and your guests a dance floor area below our glass atrium with space for a band or DJ.

Our riverside location affords us the opportunity to offer arrival at the restaurant aboard one of our elegant Edwardian River launches. Alternatively you may wish to offer short cruises to your guests along this beautiful section of the River Thames.

Thank you very much for having us (and our guests) on our wedding day and for making it a perfect occasion. We couldn’t have asked for a better day! Our guests were very impressed with the venue and your hospitality - some even told us it was the best wedding they’d ever been to!
