Oxford Wedding

Oxford is one of the world’s greatest universities, and its buildings reflect great wealth poured into the city by benefactors supporting different colleges. It is also a town with a proud manufacturing history, not least of cars. Its position between London and some of the great cities of the Midlands and the North meant that it was also a place where people stopped for the night on their travels, and there are still many grand hotels and public houses with long histories as coaching inns. There was also a good supply of clean water and a demand for beer, so Oxford breweries had many years of success. In summary, great buildings, students with happy memories and beer. No wonder it hosts so many weddings.
