Wedding Venues Hire Guide

Sprawling and lively, the city of Bristol spans both sides of the River Avon. Once a port city that launched untold fleets of ships during the Age of Exploration, today it is a city known for its repurposed industrial districts and successful blending of the modern and historic. Bristol is filled with wedding venues that can suit a variety of tastes and budgets, so let’s talk about some of what the city has to offer.

Transportation is a breeze in Bristol, with major road access and easy transportation connections so the centre is never too far away. Once you’ve reached the centre you can make the most of the area’s diverse historical heritage. The Old City is a medieval gem, with small lanes and streets, while nearby Queen Square offers a more Georgian perspective. There are several picturesque and historic buildings in the area which can be hired for a wedding ceremony, including the recently restored Old Vic theatre. Just remember some of these venues will require you to hold the reception elsewhere. Restaurants, pubs and cafes abound in this area though, so finding a suitable locale should not be a chore, especially when you use our smart filters. 

Clifton is another Bristol district to include in your hunt. Luxury hotels with views of the river, or traditional venues filled with history - such as the Merchant Venturers Mansion - are some of the many choices available. Consider also investigating the city’s educational institutions such as the University of Bristol or Clifton College which are available for wedding hire. 

If you are looking to hold the ceremony and the reception in one place, you can check the city’s list of approved venues. The centrally located Bristol Museum and Art Gallery is one of Bristol’s many stunning museums that are available for wedding hire, and which are ceremony and reception ready. The city centre is also home to many of the city’s hotels, both large chains and boutique venues, which will be happy to offer you the convenience of a wedding package to save you the stress of transporting the wedding party from one place to another. For those on the lookout for cheaper venues, there are opportunities to be found if you focus on planning a reception in one of the city’s many function rooms.

If you move your wedding venue search to Bristol’s outskirts and nearby districts you will find an amazing selection of venues that exploit the area’s natural beauty and heritage. Historic mansions in Lawrence Weston and Arno’s Vale are only some of the many exciting choices on offer. Blaise Castle House Museum is another picturesque choice at the price of a small excursion to the city’s edge.
