Weddings in Magdalen College Chapel
The College Chapel is available for weddings to Magdalen alumni, as well as current members and staff of the College and their direct family members. The Chapel is only available for weddings outside the University terms, and bookings are always agreed at the discretion of the Dean of Divinity and with the approval of the President.
How to book a wedding
The first person to approach in making an enquiry about a wedding in the Chapel is the Dean of Divinity, Rev’d Dr Jonathan Arnold (firstname.lastname@example.org). He will talk through your plans with you and with other relevant College offices before confirming a date in the Chapel diary. As soon as a date has been agreed, you will need to
- Write to the President of Magdalen asking for approval
- Request a special licence from the Church of England
- Fill in the Wedding in Magdalen Chapel Confirmation and Arrangements Form and submit to the Personal Assistant to the Dean of Divinity
More detailed instructions and information can be found in the Magdalen Chapel Wedding Guidance Notes which should be conferred with when filling in the Wedding Confirmation and Arrangements Form.
