Spread Eagle Hotel

Approved venues in South Oxfordshire, which can be used for marriages and other civil ceremonies.

The award winning Spread Eagle Hotel wedding venue in Oxfordshire offers an unrivalled location in the heart of the South Oxfordshire countryside overlooking the historic market town of Thame.

Our beautiful 35 bedroom hotel has five licensed areas for civil ceremonies. You can say your vows in The Fothergill Suite, a light-filled and neutral space that lends itself perfectly to any colour scheme or style. The space can accommodate up to 160 guests for your ceremony. The Augustus John Room is also licensed for civil ceremonies and is the ideal choice for smaller weddings of up to 25 guests. The room features a stunning large style style fireplace, period style bookcases and a beamed ceiling. For very small weddings you have the option to marry in our Bridal Garden Suites (up to 20 guests) or if weather is permitting you have the option of moving your ceremony outside to our Garden Wing Lawn.

The highly experienced wedding planners at the Spread Eagle will assist you in the planning of your special day. We offer bespoke wedding packages where every element of your day can be individually tailored. From a large scale ceremony followed by a Wedding breakfast and party, to an intimate ceremony followed by drinks, the team are happy to accommodate your wishes. You can be assured of an intimate and enchanting setting for your special day.
