About Arnos Vale

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

Queen Victoria had only recently succeeded to the throne when Arnos Vale’s gorgeous garden Cemetery was opened in 1839. The Cemetery was designed to be visually attractive in the style of a walled Greek Necropolis, with neo-classical mortuary chapels and gate lodges set in a beautiful garden of trees and plants. 

Nestled in the woods you’ll find our woodland wedding venue the Underwood Centre, imagine birds singing and fairy lights twinkling as you toast marshmallows around the fire. Our iconic venue the Spielman Centre welcomes you with grand steps and elegant pillars, a stunning fusion of Victorian architecture mixed with modern glass design. Finally, our Grade II listed Anglican Chapel is the center piece of our venue collection, giant wooden doors open to the grandest of halls complete with original Victorian features.   

Our professional onsite caterers Cleverchefs offer a delicious menu that’s perfect for your wedding celebrations, from beautifully presented canapes or classic barbeques, to lavish formal dining experiences - they will ensure that all your guests are well fed throughout the day.

Spring and Summer is ideal if you’re looking for a blanket of wildflowers, fresh greenery, and warm evenings. In Autumn the leaves are turning and an orange glow fills the estate, this is the perfect time for opulence and a rich, bold décor. Take in the crisp air with a Winter wedding, think cosy blankets and a collection of ash coloured foliage and bright berries. Whether you opt for sumptuous decoration or add minimal accents to your chosen venue you can create a truly bespoke atmosphere for your special day. We offer weddings every day of the year and have a number of packages available or our wedding manager Buffy (or the wedding slayer as we like to call her) can create a bespoke quote and timeline for you. 

The 45 acre site is of considerable ecological importance, having progressed from mediaeval countryside, Georgian estate and Victorian Cemetery to the present day with almost no use of chemical pesticides or insecticides. It is now a rare urban haven for wildlife and plants. Arnos Vale is now a registered charitable trust with the ‘Friends of Arnos Vale’ continuing to restore and preserve the site for future generations

    Our day was incredible

    Our day was incredible. Not only does this venue offer a relaxed environment to get married in - the staff from Arnos vale and Kate’s kitchen really add to the specialness of the day.
    The food and drinks choices are fantastic, the facilities great and there’s so much opportunity to put a mark on your day. All staff are happy to help and contribute. Couldn’t ask for more. Buffy is worth her weight in gold! Played an instrumental part in ensuring the day went as planned and she went above and beyond. V impressed.

    Could not have been better

    Everything was amazing. The venue was awesome, people worked really hard to make it look beautiful and helped my guests on the day. Everyone said how delicious the food was, both day and night. 10 out of 10 for Cleverchefs, Buffy the wedding coordinator and the staff at Arnos Vale. Thank you for a perfect day. Xx

    We loved that everything was so personal

    The process from start to finish was well organised, friendly and professional. The venue is beautiful and the staff are fantastic. We loved that everything was so flexible so that we could create a day that was personal to us. Buffy was amazing and made everything so easy for us during the planning and on the day, we couldn't have done it without her. Thank you to everyone at Arnos Vale.
