“The Clifton Pavilion was the perfect venue for our wedding, having had our first date there, followed by a proposal in the penguin enclosure two years later, it was the obvious choice! The wedding planners were very friendly, made us feel very comfortable and understood what we wanted for our special day. From the second meeting we were so well informed that we barely had any questions for them and knew exactly how our day would run!! The event staff on the day were fantastic, kept communicating with us throughout the day and ensured our wedding day ran seamlessly. The security guy could not have been more helpful and even booked taxis for our guests to get home. Not knowing Bristol very well, we had to rely on the recommended suppliers list supplied by the Pavilion and the ones we chose were just perfect. The food was absolutely delicious – I have never heard so many positive comments about a wedding breakfast before – and the dietary requirements were more than adequately met. This venue offered so many perfect photo opportunities for capturing our special day and our guests loved the chance to wander around the zoo after the drinks reception and again after hours. The zoo visitors were all courteous and understanding while we had photos taken and we had so many people offer congratulations as we walked around the zoo. All in all, if you want a well organised wedding, at a fantastic location with perfect food, then this is the place for you! Thank you so much Clifton Pavilion wedding team!”


“I recently married my fiance, who then became my wife at Clifton pavilion in Bristol Zoo. We did this because we shared our first date at the zoo, I proposed to her at the zoo and then had the wedding ceremony there to round it off nicely. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that it was one of the better ideas I have ever had. Everything was arranged as we wanted and for bits that weren’t included (cake, DJ etc etc) they were recommended by the planners from previous weddings held there. All we really had to do was pick and choose. The day itself was amazing!! The staff couldn’t do enough for us and this extended from the wedding coordinator down to the bar staff and even the security doorman at the evening reception went out of his way to be helpful. The building itself was perfect and looks brilliant with all the decorations in place. The photographers also took us around the zoo to have our photos taken with various different animals and buildings. So to conclude…an amazing venue, very helpful staff and a day we will never forget!”


“What can I say about this wedding venue. Amazing, excellent, scenic, beautiful, fun, .. Too many to list! But trust me when I say, all positive!! The ceremony upstairs was amazing, it was well presented along with our decorations. It definitely made the day special until my wife walked down the aisle, then all I could focus on was just her! ;p The food was excellent.. All gone when we got back from our photo shoot. Everything was done so well! Being allow to walk around the zoo definitely made a difference. No more waiting around and being a little bored. The guests loved every minute of it. The kids loved it as well and it made the day even more special. We would recommend this venue to anyone, having pictures taken here was really something! Even in October, it was still lovely. Or venue coordinator on the day (Lisa) was extremely helpful, professional, and managed to do so much. We would definitely recommend her as well. Thank you Dylan Hunt for going through the fine details. Your team did an excellent job!”


“This is not necessarily a traditional wedding venue, but we were quite keen to have something a little bit different from the norm. The building, in particular the upstairs room is beautiful and perfect for the ceremony and wedding breakfast. In between the different parts of the day though guests can wander round the zoo, providing free entertainment and perhaps a slightly more relaxed vibe to the whole day. The team there were great, particularly on the day itself, everything went so smoothly. We really did have the perfect day there”
