Bristol Harbour Hotel Full Description
Fusing together two iconic former banks located in the heart of the city, Bristol Harbour Hotel and Spa is the most spectacular and unique wedding venue in the city. The Sansovino event space is an undeniably elegant venue to host your Big Day. Private yet spacious, the grand Sansovino was the former banking hall of Lloyds Bank. Designed by architect William Bruce Gingell, he is said to have been inspired by Sansovino’s 16th century venetian Library. Look up and the magnificent sky light is wonderfully romantic - and the perfect setting for your first dance to be. With a private bar, the space boasts a large dance floor so there is plenty of room for a live band, DJ or both to celebrate your future together! Licensed for marriage ceremonies and civil partnerships of up to 300 family and friends, you can choose to enjoy the whole day at the hotel, or opt to hold only parts of your day with us, such as the Wedding Breakfast and Evening Reception. With an additional event space, aptly named “The Vault”, this stunning venue has been created in the original banking vaults and provides a unique setting for your rehearsal dinner the night before the Big Day! Bespoke wedding packages are a speciality with options to suit every budget, including complimentary accommodation for the happy couple and preferred accommodation rates for your guests. The Hotel, Corn Street and surrounding areas offers an abundance of characterful backdrops to capture your day, providing unique and memorable photos to look back on fondly.

The day itself was absolutely perfect. Although we wanted our day to be fairly simple and straightforward, it was made into something very special by yourself and your team.

Fantastic venue with a quirky difference
We didn't want a traditional wedding, so we chose to have our ceremony and reception in an old Bank vault. Decorated so that it was light and airy, and a perfect setting for an intimate wedding. The vault bars/doors was a great photo prop setting and the staircase also provided a great backdrop. We also had exclusive use of the Gold Bar for arrival drinks between the ceremony & reception. The bridal suite was fabulous. Food delicious, and service excellent. The wedding coordinator couldn't do more for us. And best of all the package was excellent value and highly competitive, and included complimentary 12 month spa membership for us both, plus an anniversary stay in any if the Harbour Hotels up to the value of £500. All our guests said how unusual and beautiful it was to have such an intimate celebration in such a stunning building.
