Oxford Pub Wedding at The Perch

A Ceremony at Oxford Town Hall

Adam and Jo met at Truck Festival through mutual friends and couldn’t believe their luck… (insert broken heart emoji!)  Their wedding was super relaxed, completely reflecting the kind of couple they are.  They decide to keep the ceremony at Oxford Town Hall small and intimate, and decided only to invite close friends and family.  Everyone then walked through the city down towards The Folly Pub for a few drinks before taking a boat up the river to The Perch, where they were greeted and whooped by the rest of their guests.

A Wedding Reception at The Perch

The Perch has such a friendly laid back vibe, and their epic signature authentic feast will blow your mind!!  Adam + Jo also hired the most unusual side entertainments: a pinball machine and fortune telling machine, which were so much fun and went down a treat!

Being big music fans, choosing the bands took a while but in the end they went for a gypsy jazz band for some afternoon tunes and a rockabilly band for dancing in the evening which didn’t disappoint!
