You may have read recently that Bristol Zoo in due to close towards the end of 2022, please be assured that this will not effect your wedding plans for 2022 in any way. There will be no immediate change as the zoo will ensure that visitors and guests are able to fully enjoy the Zoo right up until the very last day the zoo is open. The plan is to retain the zoo itself for approximately 12 months after it is closed to the public as it will take some time to transfer animals to their new homes. This will take place largely in 2023 after the zoo has closed so we look forward to welcoming as many weddings as we can up until late 2022, so please do get in touch with the team to book your wedding in the beautifully elegant Clifton Pavilion.

    Completely Impressed

    Thank you so much for all of your hard work and efforts in helping Alan and I create our beautiful wedding.
    It was so lovely to have someone who was friendly, helpful and communicative. You made me feel like there was nothing more important than our wedding and felt like your time was completely devoted to us. You made the whole process a complete breeze.
    To Alesha and her amazing team, you guys were like a well oil machine and did an incredible job on the operational/logistical element of the day. The venue looked amazing. The day went without a hitch (or so that’s how it felt) and your team were so lovely, helpful and supportive.
    The meetings in the lead up to the wedding were ideal and we were both completely impressed on how everyone involved from the very start to the finish, contributed.

    Amazing from start to finish

    We don't know how to put into words how thankful we are to you for making our day completely perfect. It was amazing from start to finish. You thought of everything to ensure our day was perfect even making sure the surprises ran smoothly and keeping the secrets, I had no idea!!
    The ceremony went smoothly as could be, with the extra chorus of the flamingos. The food was exquisite, which everybody commented on! All the staff we were so kind, thoughtful and couldn't do enough to help us and our families.
    Alysha you were an absolute angel throughout the whole day. Keeping me calm and ensuring the day went as amazingly as it could. Even going the extra mile with the cocktail bar. You looked after all guests brilliantly. I would recommend the Clifton Pavilion again and again for any occasion.
    We are beyond happy with our day at the zoo. You made that possible.
    Thank you again.
