Situated on the historic King Street in the centre of Bristol is Bristol Old Vic theatre, the UK’s longest continuously running theatre, and also the grandest of stages for your wedding day.

The Studio Theatre, the perfect location for a more contemporary style wedding. Or, finally, to add a touch more glamour to the proceedings, there is the Main Auditorium where you can say ‘I do’ on a stage that has hosted the likes of Daniel Day-Lewis, and Judi Dench.

All food will be supplied by Fosters, one of the leading catering companies in the South West.

The First Wedding
Venue Service

By Helen and Tom, on 13 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Oct 2018

Where do we start?! We had the perfect wedding at Bristol Old Vic, we can't thank you and your colleagues enough. It was the perfect mix of impeccable service whilst still feeling informal and really 'us'! All of our guests had a fab time and we've had countless compliments about the service and the food - hands down the best wedding food anyone has had! The waiting staff were so lovely - I know there was a few last-minute changes like getting the mic set up and adjusting the music volume and you dealt with it wonderfully. The table set up and room looked exactly as I imagined, and I couldn't believe how quickly you did it! There were just so many tiny touches that made everything so easy for us and we could just enjoy the day - you have an amazing team there! A special thanks to you for making the whole planning process so easy, and for guiding us through. I'm so glad you called me all those months ago, when the Old Vic was a building site and we made the visit even after my car broke down! You were so calm and kind on the morning of the wedding too, helping my mum and the bridesmaids get sorted, and so accommodating when we were setting up on Friday. We have honestly had so many lovely compliments on the venue, service and food - you guys are just amazing and it was everything we wanted it to be. I know there will be many more happy couples getting hitched at the Old Vic, but it felt very special to be the first.
