Oxfordshire is a delightfully historic county that ranges from dreaming spires to idyllic Cotswold countryside. It's home to some truly wonderful venues too that are just perfect for a winter wedding. We've put together our favourite wedding venues in Oxfordshire that we think you're going to love, plus a couple of extras that are slightly over the border but we just had to share with you!
This magnificent Grade I Listed manor house is an elegant and grand setting for your wedding day and looks spectacular in the winter, with a touch of frost or a sprinkling of snow over the gardens and grounds, landscaped by Capability Brown. The house is home to a number of stunning fireplaces, such as the impressive example in the Hall that was hand carved by the renowned Sir Henry Cheere. With roaring fires throughout, KIrtlington Park becomes a wonderfully cosy and sophisticated winter wedding venue.

The Tythe Barn
Boasting Cotswold stone and a stunning thatched roof, this 14th Century barn venue is a wonderfully warm and inviting setting for a wedding. The beams look magical when decorated with twinkling fairy lights and the underfloor heating in the barn ensures that you and your guests stay nice and cosy all day and night!
This quintessentially English barn venue is found in the heart of rural Oxfordshire, close to the market town of Wantage. The barn itself dates back to 1750 and has been lovingly restored, maintaining many of the original features that make it so special. The timber frame, polished stone floor and vaulted ceiling provide a magical setting for an unforgettable rustic wedding day, while the fairy lights and white silk drapes make for a truly romantic celebration.
We couldn't resist writing about these two venues! Yes, we know that they're not strictly in Oxfordshire but they're close enough and too special not to mention!
Oxleaze Barn is a wonderful venue, boasting honey-coloured Cotswold stone, delightfully rustic décor, and picturesque gardens for you and your guests to enjoy. A striking fireplace sits at one end of the barn where a roaring fire, combined with underfloor heating, will keep you toasty throughout your celebrations. Those willing to brave the cold will be rewarded by a fire pit, which crackles away in the middle of the lawn and provides a great spot to capture a few photographs.
This remarkable barn wedding venue in the Cotswolds provides an enchanting and intimate setting for your special day. Take centre stage in the middle of the barn while you tie the knot, with the idyllic countryside stretching out through the full-length windows in front of you. Have the fires lit and treat guests to Stone Barn's legendary catering, a hearty and warming menu straight from their giant indoor BBQ and smoker. Fill the stunning barn with lanterns, candles and seasonal foliage for that perfect winter wedding venue.
