Say ‘I do’ on board Brunel’s SS Great Britain, for a truly unique wedding celebration. Set in the heart of Bristol’s vibrant harbourside and just a short distance from the city centre and its transport links, this is a great choice for couples inviting guests from far and wide.
Licensed for civil ceremonies, you can say your vows on the Promenade Deck underneath the beautiful skylight, before making the most of the unique setting and capturing your all-important wedding photography.

The Hayward Saloon is available for a DJ or band so that you can dance the night away, and every wedding has exclusive access to the ship throughout the whole evening. Your wedding co-ordinator will be on hand throughout the day to make sure the day runs smoothly, and the award-winning stewards are with you throughout the entire evening to take guests on tours of the ship.

A unique venue for a special day
What can we say about yesterday? A fantastic day for Diane and me that was so special because of the unique, special, location. Throughout the service from you and your team has been unbelievably brilliant.Sent on 07/12/2018
Right from the first time we walked onto the ship back in January we were both convinced that it would be the prefect location for out wedding. It was totally a "spur of the moment" decision. We just went to visit the ship, saw the brochure about weddings and then and there decided, "this is just so right" and as you know we booked for "as soon as possible".
Thanks to you personally for all the help you have given us, and please pass on our thanks to the whole team. We know that there are lots of people involved. However, please give our special thanks to both Bob, and Steve, They both were brilliant on the day - Bob especially.
Attention to detail is so important, and the level of detail was amazing.
All of our guests remarked on the magnificence of the location.
A unique venue for a special day and one that was perfect for the start of our married life.
We were proud to be, in Bob's words, "now part of the history of the SS Great Britain".

impossible to NOT have an awesome wedding
We chose Brunel’s ss Great Britain because we were after a wedding venue that would knock peoples’ socks off. We spent a fair few months looking at all the country homes/barns/hotels that are situated in and around Bristol and we hadn’t come across anything that actually got us excited. Then we came across a website that happened to mention you can get married on the ss Great Britain… so we booked a viewing and had a nice little tour of the ship and our minds were made up! We just thought that the venue was so different (in a good way) that it would be impossible to NOT have an awesome wedding, all the small corridors, the wonderful décor and all of the original trinkets meant that there was no decoration required by us… plus its situated RIGHT on the harbour, which we love.Sent on 15/09/2016

It was BEAUTIFUL! The food was amazing, all the staff were wonderful, there was so much room to explore and set up extra entertainment. It really was a perfect day and I wouldn’t change a thing.
