A great advantage to planning a Civil Ceremony is that you can choose a venue offering facilities for both the Civil Ceremony and the Wedding Reception whilst also providing a private, intimate and romantic atmosphere – this makes Alveston House, just North of Bristol City Centre, the perfect choice.

Whether you’re planning to share your celebrations with all your friends and family or only your nearest and dearest, the setting in which you take your vows is of paramount importance. We are therefore proud to offer a choice of elegant Suites to suit your needs.

Both suites open out into our beautiful walled Gardens where we can serve drinks and Canapés to your guests after your Ceremony. You can then choose from one of our Exclusive, Inclusive or Budget wedding packages to cater for your wedding reception. With everything under one roof, you can be confident your Special Day will run smoothly and according to plan.
