Ashton Court Mansion
  • All-inclusive venue
  • Stunning part-medieval mansion set in its own estate
  • Suitable for wedding parties from 30 to over 400 guests
  • Beautiful grounds and extensive parkland
  • Licensed to host ceremonies

Surrounded by 850 acres of gorgeous parkland, and not far from Bristol's vibrant city centre, you will find Ashton Court, a historic 15th-century mansion offering a luxurious backdrop for ceremonies and receptions. With origins dating back to medieval times, as you would expect, this Grade I-listed edifice is steeped in history. Home to a distinguished and wealthy family for over 400 years, the estate was acquired by the council in 1959 and gradually restored into the magnificent mansion and park that survives today.

The venue offers two function suites, one suitable for smaller, more intimate wedding ceremonies or receptions, the other for larger-scale celebrations - or you could even book both of them!

Facilities

As well as being a perfect location for wedding receptions (as it's so close to the city), Ashton Court Mansion is also conveniently licensed for the conduct of civil marriage and partnership ceremonies.

The venue offers two wedding suites:-

The Music Room

This spacious suite can cater for wedding parties of 160 for a seated dinner. The grand Music Room features breathtaking views of Bristol as well as affording easy access to the venue's immaculately-kept grounds for your drinks and canapés reception, or for some stunning wedding photographs.

The Panelled Lounge

If you are planning a slightly smaller wedding party, this delightful Georgian lounge can play host to anywhere up to 50 for both seated receptions and ceremonies.

If planning a particularly large-scale wedding, you could make use of both of these rooms, and even erect a marquee in the grounds. Whatever your wishes for the day, the venue's friendly and helpful staff are devoted to taking plenty of time in order to make sure your special celebration is every bit as unique as you've always imagined.

Reviews

  • The Thankful Couple

    Ashton Court certainly impressed our guests by how beautiful and characteristic it was. The set up and attention to detail was excellent and we were really pleased by how pretty it was. A lot of our guests came and specifically thanked us for the food, they said it was amazing and in our opinion it was heaven.

    Additional thanks to the team for setting up the children's Easter egg hunt. It went down a storm and was very well appreciated by parents especially!

    We truly had a wonderful time. We will certainly be recommending you to others!

  • The Amazed Couple

    Thank you so much we had a fantastic time. The Ashton Court team were fantastic, particularly Grace who really made our day.

    I was also really amazed and relieved at how well the team coped with us noticing an unexpected guest at the last minute.

    We can't stop talking about how great you all were!

  • The Happy Couple

    We'd like to pass on a huge thank you to Christie who oversaw our day and kept everything running smoothly. She put my mind at rest as soon as I arrived at the venue and continued to keep us relaxed all day and night.

    All our friends and family have said what a magical day it was and everything I had in my head decoration wise was exactly perfect on the day.

    We really couldn't have been happier.
