Full Description
Step into 45 acres of stunning woodland habitat in the heart of the City. Arnos Vale is the perfect location for couples looking for that unique wedding setting in Bristol. Discover our Woodland Wedding venue set in the breathtaking surroundings of our natural forest ecosystem and step away from the ordinary. Imagine your guests sat on rustic benches surrounded by fairy lights and birdsong as the bride walks down the aisle in the only licensed civil ceremony woodland venue in Bristol. From gentle background music and simple decorations in a laid back woodland reception to that live band festival feel, a woodland wedding is a truly personal experience. The freshly renovated Spielman Centre has the perfect fusion of elegant Victorian architecture mixed with the modern glass design of the Atrium Cafe. Licensed for civil ceremonies, picture yourselves walking the grand steps between the elegant pillars leading up to the imposing double wooden doors opening into a lofty interior space. The Spielman Centre can accommodate up to 70 guests for your ceremony and wedding breakfast and up to 120 for your evening celebrations. Our final venue, the Anglican Chapel, is a majestically elegant Grade II listed building and the centrepiece in our venue collection. Licensed for Church of England ceremonies, the wide ornate steps leading into the Chapel make a wonderful entrance for both guests and the bride leading into our grandest space. Its spectacular design and pitch perfect acoustics are ideal for both your ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening celebrations. Our three venues complete a magnificent collection of amazing spaces which, unlike anywhere else, can be combined to suit your requirements and to create your perfect wedding day for you and your guests. With its stunning central location, award winning food and combination of unique venues, Arnos Vale is the complete location for your wedding in Bristol.
