When we started the fair, Katie and I talked for days about the 'perfect' venue for the fair.  And, of course, by that we meant the perfect wedding venue!  We had no idea that we would actually find it and continue to hold our fair there every year!  But that's how we feel about the Clifton Pavilion

Our exhibitors always say "it's the BEST venue" and we can't believe just how lucky we are. The rooms are beautifully proportioned, the light is amazing and really, this venue has everything you could want.  For a start, the Clifton Pavilion has a licence to perform wedding ceremonies and civil partnerships  so you can hold your ceremony here as well as celebrate afterwards.

The elegant rooms are gorgeous, with sumptuous gold flock wallpaper in the Clifton Suite and the famous leopard print carpet leading into it, as well as glorious views over the zoo. Amazing chandeliers light up the room and yet it somehow feels personal and intimate!  The garden room is incredibly light and airy and you have the unique added bonus of being able to have your photographs taken in the zoo gardens!  Take a look at some of the fabulous reviews on Hitched from couples who have had their big day here.

The venue is run by Bristol Zoo Gardens Hospitality who take pride in supplying excellent menu options utilising fresh, locally sourced sustainable and ethical ingredients, coupled with friendly professional staff.  

By holding your wedding at the Clifton Pavilion you are helping the great work of Bristol Zoo Gardens as a proportion of your wedding fee goes to the zoo assisting with conservation projects - both in the UK and overseas.  You can take pride in the fact your wedding will have an ethical aspect!

Exciting news is that the Zoo we have recently opened The Lodge, a two bedroom accommodation within the grounds.  They have put together an overnight stay package for bride & bridesmaids the night prior to the wedding and for the bride & groom on their wedding night.  

The Clifton Pavilion will be serving refreshments on the day, so take a few minutes to sit back and relax whilst you're there.  We're so looking forward to another year at this wonderful venue and we can't wait to share it with you!
