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. 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. 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. With its stunning central location, award winning food and combination of unique venues, Arnos Vale is the complete location for your wedding in Bristol.

Thank you to everyone at Arnos Vale.
The process from start to finish was well organised, friendly and professional. The venue is beautiful and the staff are fantastic. We loved that everything was so flexible so that we could create a day that was personal to us. Buffy was amazing and made everything so easy for us during the planning and on the day, we couldn't have done it without her. Thank you to everyone at Arnos Vale.

We had a wonderful day. The reception was outside in the underwood with everything wonderfully decorated. A fire where we could toast marshmallows and wonderful staff who tried their best to make everythings perfect. When it was predicted rain they offered a place to have it indoors and were wonderful at planning everything to ensure we were happy. The underwood itself was beautiful and the fairy lights and candles gave it a nice touch. Many of our friends said they would consider it if they were in Bristol (majority of them were scottish) but everyone loved it.

It felt like magic!
A lot of people can’t see the potential of Arnos Vale as people shy away from the fact it’s a cemetery. However, as soon as we walked through the gates it felt like magic! Our wedding flowed so well using both the Anglican Chapel and Spielman Centre. The catering team (Cleverchefs) are outstanding and Buffy is phenomenal! The Cleverchefs team provided an excellent and seamless service. We had the best day of our lives and were extremely happy with the five star waiting team and especially Nick. Buffy is a real asset to the Arnos Vale team and she really made our wedding day.
