All just perfect.
Hi CassieSent on 17/12/2018
We had an absolutely brilliant party on Saturday night. I thought it was just a brilliant night and all our guests had a cracking time. It all went swimmingly, and I think everyone there had a great deal of fun!
Many thanks again for putting it all together and for all your help in organising the evening. All the team were great in making it such a stress free event. Everyone commented on how beautiful the museum looked as well.
All just perfect.
Thanks again for arranging everything,
Nick & Caroline

A great space to celebrate
We were incredibly chuffed with how everything went on the big day, as well as everything before and after. You guys organised everything perfectly,Sent on 22/01/2019
Zoe was great at handling everything which really took the pressure off me, All the team worked well for us, so well organised and flexible.
Feedback from our guests was that they loved the venue, impressed with the exhibits, loved the food, and that it was just a great space to celebrate in.
Unfortunately I cannot remember the chaps name who opened the bar and called people through, but he was great. The team put us at ease whilst we were having photos in the galleries.
Generally, everything was in place and organised such that we did not need to think about it, which was perfect for us and we cannot thank you guys enough.

First class! We wish we could do it all again!
As we had our ceremony on the SS Great Britain we loved the idea of having 2 venues that were really Bristolian. Plus when we visited the museum it just too our breath away that we could have that venue for that price. Such a special place.Sent on 26/08/2016
• Did the venue have any special memories or meaning for you as a couple or yours guests?
Like I said as above, we are both proud Bristolians born and bread so we loved that we had our reception in such an iconic Bristolian venue. Half of my family travelled from London so they thought it was amazing to see such a great part of Bristol and our Bristol family said they wouldn't have known it was possible to have a wedding reception there and that it felt so grand.
• What was your favourite thing about hosting your reception at Bristol Museum?
The staff were just awesome, Will was so helpful he couldn't have done anymore for us. But it was the venue, the pure look of it, it just felt special. Once we put our spin on it with the decorations we thought it looked amazing! It was the little things i.e. from picking the colour of the lights that made it just perfect. We wish we could do it all again!
• How did you find the service you received, both in the run up to your evening and on the night?
First class! Nothing short of that. Even after the event, when picking up our bits and bobs, the service was perfect until the end.
