Weddings at The Observatory

2019 has been a wonderful year at The Clifton Observatory with numerous exciting events having happened including the launch of our 360 Café, a number of successful birthday & special occasion events, conferences, anniversaries and our first hosted wedding!

We had the pleasure of hosting a number of beautiful weddings throughout the summer, which we were absolutely delighted to play a part in.  The Observatory team enjoyed seeing the happy faces of a couple in love celebrating their nuptials and knowing that you have been part of creating their special day.

The Observatory boasts spectacular views over the world-renowned Clifton Suspension bridge and across the city of Bristol, which make us the perfect setting for a wedding. This year we were proud to receive great feedback from all of our weddings. One point that resonated with us in particular was from couples from Bristol or who have routes and connections here and who commented on how wonderful it was to ‘show off’ the city to those family and friends who had not visited Bristol before or for a long period of time. 

With this  also came comments from the guests who have lived in Bristol and the Clifton area  for their entire lives and were unaware of what Clifton Observatory had to offer the local community.

Our 360 Café, Camera Obscura and Giants Cave  visitors are also always so pleasantly surprised to know that the Observatory is a prime location to host a Bristol Wedding .

One of the team’s favour moments of the year was hosting our first wedding back on August 3rd:

Rosie & Rob became Mr and Mrs Wells, celebrating with many friends and family members, everyone came together in very high spirits and danced the night away!

The table decorations and centre pieces were absolutely stunning.  The team really enjoyed assisting with the setting up and the details that were put into both the ceremony and the wedding breakfast.

Held on a lovely clear day, the perfect setting to enjoy the panoramic views over Bristol city

The event catering was provided by our fantastic caterers Kate’s Kitchen along with a special feature caterers Eatchu! who provided oodles of noodles and some yummy gyozas in a very stylish and quirky ‘food truck’.

As well as hosting full wedding packages we have also had the opportunity to host a number of intimate ceremony only events within our William West room.  A memorable ceremony for the team was the wedding of  Louise and Rhodri. �

Our William West Room has really seen it all this year and we have been fortunate enough to have lots of lovely guests and happy couples coming together under our roof (or on the rooftop).

2020 is set for another year of exciting events with every Saturday in the summer now fully booked! We still have limited availability on select Fridays and weekdays availablity, so please get in touch to secure your next event or special celebration.  Books are also now being taken for 2021.
