Weddings

We are currently operating within Government guidelines, however, please do not hesitate to email us at uob-venues@bristol.ac.uk or call 0117 4284000 to leave a voicemail message. Be assured, the Venue and Events Team is still available to discuss the wedding of your dreams.

Just for you, there could be the perfect venue in the heart of Clifton, in the beautiful surrounds of Georgian and Victorian buildings, manicured gardens and wonderful hidden surprises – a shell-studded grotto, ornamental canal, statues and a fully restored rotunda.

You can experience this at Goldney House and Clifton Hill House. Both have stunning gardens, beautiful listed buildings, and some secret spaces that very few people in Bristol even know about, let alone have seen. Wow your guests with something truly different, fabulous food and personal service in a venue that is all yours for your special day.

"I just wanted to send over the biggest thank you for making our wedding happen on Saturday.  We had the most PERFECT day we could have ever imagined, it exceeded all of our expectations.  We're still feeling totally overwhelmed to be honest!  We know it's not been an easy journey to get there, but we are so absolutely thrilled that we made it.   We've been so lucky to have you all to make our day special, even under all of these bizarre circumstances.   Our guests all loved it too, the venue was so perfect for us and was so beautiful." Holly and Jonny, October 2020  

"I just wanted to write to say a very big thank you for making everything so smooth on our civil partnership day... everything about the day was just as we wanted it... The venue was perfect." Helen & Tim, January 2020

"We really can’t thank you enough for all your help both in the lead up to the wedding and on the day. You made it all go perfectly!" Frances & Gaizka, July 2019

"The day ran so perfectly and you dressed Goldney and Clifton Hill House exactly how I’d asked, but in my opinion so so much better than I would have done... I was blown away when I stepped inside the Orangery... The day was like a fairytale... From start to finish it was perfect and stress free" Tracy & Paul, September 2018
