Luxurious wedding venue in Bristol : Ashton Court Mansion
Situated within 850 acres of stunning country parkland lies Ashton Court Mansion, an exquisite 16th-century estate offering the perfect location for spectacular wedding ceremonies and receptions in Bristol.
With its mediaeval origins, the magnificent house is immersed in history; until it was sold to the council in 1959, the mansion was home to a renowned wealthy merchant family for over 400 years. After extensive repair work was carried out, the estate was finally opened to the public in the ’70s, and brides and grooms have been enjoying its beautiful architecture and immaculately-kept grounds ever since!
With breathtaking views over Bristol, gorgeous gardens, and a choice of beautiful rooms in which to hold your ceremony or reception, this majestic mansion really is an ideal location for a wedding.
Exquisite wedding suites
Ashton Court Mansion offers two wedding suites, one of which is well-equipped to cater for large wedding parties, the other perfect for smaller intimate weddings. The venue is licensed for hosting civil marriage ceremonies, civil partnerships, and all types of wedding receptions.
The Music Room – The larger of the two suites, the Music Room can accommodate from 80 to 210 guests at a sit down dinner, or up to 300 guests for a buffet reception. This spacious area overlooks the venue’s perfectly manicured lawn, and offers wonderful views over the city that will make an impressive backdrop for fabulous wedding photographs!
The Panelled Lounges – This smaller, cosier Georgian suite holds from 30 to 80 guests for dinner, or 100 for a buffet, and its friendly atmosphere affords an intimate setting for smaller wedding parties.
Ashton Court Mansion is licensed to hold up to 750 guests, so if you are planning a significantly large wedding party, you will be able to hire both suites simultaneously! You are also invited to make full use of the mansion’s extensive grounds by hiring a marquee, a fairground ride, or a barbecue – the possibilities are endless!
Professional advice and service
The friendly and professional team at Ashton Court Mansion will be on hand to offer their expert advice, and are dedicated to ensure that your wedding will run smoothly from start to finish, by means of seamless communication and planning right through to fantastic food and service.
Ashton Court Mansion’s luxurious paintings, fireplaces, chandeliers, staircases and sumptuous architectural setting, combined with spectacular views, make it an extremely popular choice for weddings throughout the year. Imagine enjoying a summer’s afternoon sipping a glass of Pimms on the lawn, or gazing out onto the snow-covered grounds from the cosy security of the roaring fireplaces during the colder months – idyllic!
“We had a wonderful day; thank you so much. All the staff were amazing and we can’t fault a thing! So many people commented on what a lovely venue it was and how good the service and food were. We really can’t thank you enough!”
