Bristol's most unique wedding setting


Right in the heart of Bristol, this is the perfect location if you’re looking for something a little bit different. Mix and match our three unique venues for your ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening celebrations.

Our wooden beamed Underwood Centre brings couples face to face with nature, the iconic Spielman Centre welcomes you with grand steps and elegant pillars and our Anglican Chapel combines spectacular design and stunning open space for your wedding celebrations.

We are also a dog-friendly wedding venue. To arrange a viewing, please call 0117 971 9117

The Underwood Centre

Wander up the woodland path to discover our magical venue, the Underwood Centre.

We can accommodate up to 80 guests at the Underwood Centre in the green forest (60 seated and a further 20 standing). Furry friends are also welcome at this venue- it wouldn’t be the same without them! The large oak beams and rustic tin roof of the Underwood Centre compliments the surrounding woodland perfectly. Fairy lights hang from the canopy to provide a twinkle to your ceremony and wooden benches offer informal seating for your guests. Imagine birds singing and warm sunlight glistening through the trees as you announce your vows. After your ceremony, make your way to our rustic drinks shed for a celebratory glass of bubbly followed by toasting marshmallows around the fire pit (great for kids… and adults too!)

Spielman Centre

As you walk around Arnos Vale, admire the impressive pillars of our Spielman Centre.

The Spielman Centre is licensed for civil ceremonies and partnerships for up to 90 guests. We are also licensed for music and entertainment and can accommodate up to 140 guests for your evening reception. Mix and match the Spielman Centre with the Underwood Centre, or Anglican Chapel for your individual requirements. Designed by Charles Underwood in 1839, this Victorian building was built from the finest materials of its day. The attached Atrium café brings a modern twist to the building and extra space for you and your guests to use for your evening celebrations. Imagine walking up the grand stone steps, through the large wooden doors into an elegant interior with magnificent leaded windows allowing natural light to flood the room. Wooden chairs are provided for your guests and the natural décor offers a blank canvas for you to create a truly bespoke atmosphere for your special day.

Anglican Chapel

Complete with original Victorian features, the Anglican Chapel is the centrepiece of our venue collection.

The Anglican Chapel is licensed for a traditional church ceremony of up to 100 guests and can accommodate up to 100 guests for your wedding breakfast (menu restrictions may apply in low season). We are licensed for music and entertainment and can accommodate up to 120 guests for your evening reception. You can combine the Anglican Chapel with the Underwood Centre or Spielman Centre to create your truly bespoke wedding day. Admire beautifully carved columns and the stunning bell tower before you step inside the grandest of halls. Ornate floor tiles guide you into a vast space with elegant curved windows and marble wall plaques giving a classic yet stylish atmosphere. Imagine soft light glistening through the windows as you declare your love and announce your vows.
