I recently got to visit the lovely Grace at ‘The Clifton Pavilion’ to talk about Weddings at Bristol Zoo Gardens.
Situated very close to Clifton Village in Bristol, this is a fantastic venue providing the perfect setting for your wedding ceremony, reception and evening soiree. The building itself was built in the 1920’s and was clearly created for a grand and lavish occasion.
From the moment that you step into the building you really get the sense of the impactful architecture. The rooms are not only beautiful but provide glorious views over the lawns and flamingos! With a capacity for 120 guests, the building offers flexibility in terms of the rooms available and a variety of packages for your very special day. The building also benefits from the most glorious natural light which further enhances its desirability as a wedding venue.
The Clifton Suite – Weddings at Bristol Zoo Gardens
Situated on the first floor of this historic building, this room really has the wow factor. Aside from the views, the room is adorned in creams, greens and golds and the most fabulous chandeliers. This room is perfect for your Celebrant led wedding ceremony and then can be used for your wedding breakfast. It also has a stunning balcony from which your guests can enjoy the views across the zoo and its grounds.
The Garden Room – Weddings at Bristol Zoo Gardens
On the ground floor of this wedding venue is ‘The Garden Room.’ There is a terrace where you can relax and enjoy drinks. This also provides an opportunity for your guests to enjoy the zoo and the award winning gardens. There are also the most wonderful photograph opportunities for your wedding, to include intimate shots of the happy couple right through to group shots in the gardens or on the balcony. Once all the formalities are over the Garden Room provides the perfect venue for the party to really get started and for you all to dance the night away!
Bristol Zoo History
Bristol Zoo is one of the oldest zoos in the world and dates back to 1835, www.bristolzoo.org.uk. It was founded by Henry Riley who was a local physician, who led the formation of the Bristol, Clifton, and West of England Zoological Society. Since the zoo has opened it has educated millions of children. Today it cares for more than 450 species and has helped to save 175 species from extinction.
You guests are most welcome to explore the zoo and see a whole host of animals during the occasion which will ensure that your wedding is most memorable. So, if you are looking for a venue that is not only stunning, unique and has the wonderful backdrop of the Bristol Zoo Gardens, then this could be the venue for you.
