Reviews

  • Nneka Opene

    We had our wedding this December which was well coordinated by Richard Bravery, Events Manager and team. It was a magical and memorable ceremony under the stars in the planetarium. Highly recommend this venue. Thank you to all at We The Curious for helping us to tie the knot

  • Jade and Daniel - 08/10/2016

    [The service] was fantastic. I was given a space upstairs away from all the public and guests which gave me a bit of time to have some peace before the full hustle and bustle of the wedding day began. The actual ceremony itself was completely perfect. Every detail was covered, from waiting until my bridesmaids were down the aisle before I made my entrance, to the lights and music and directing our guests out into Millennium Square. Overall my ceremony was better than I could imagine it being and At-Bristol exceeded my expectations.

    It was the most stress free day thanks to the brilliant staff who considered every detail, right down to details that I wouldn't have considered, like having the stars on throughout the whole ceremony. Above all, it feels incredible to be able to say that I got married under the stars.

  • Ross and Jenny - 25/07/2015

    We picked @Bristol because of the location, but also because we felt it would be a much more unique experience than other available options. We also thought the prices were very competitive. The service on the day was above and beyond our expectations. We really felt that everything was taken care of. We would absolutely recommend @Bristol as a wedding venue, we enjoyed it and all our guests were very impressed.

  • Emma and Wayne - 16/05/2015

    Our day was beyond anything we could have imagined. The day went faultlessly with Sarah and Max making sure we both were in the right place at the right time. The Star show during the wedding was so special and is a highlight of the day... also having a set of Stormtroopers and Darth Vader as an escort didn't hurt which Sarah was able to co-ordinate with the Father of the Bride to ensure it was a total surprise on the day.
