About The Grand Pier

Marine Parade, Weston-super-Mare
Somerset, BS23 1AL

If you’re looking for a wedding venue with a difference – somewhere unusual, somewhere unique, and somewhere that reflects both of your personalities – then we've got just the ticket!

A wedding at the Grand Pier is anything but ordinary...

Standing proudly amongst the waves a quarter of a mile out to sea, the Grand Pier is home to a fun, vibrant and colourful indoor theme park with over 500 amusements and 13 thrilling rides. It's wonderfully British, right on the beach in Weston-super-Mare, and has super-duper views out to sea from every room. Plus, it’s almost guaranteed to be utterly different to anything any of your guests would have experienced before.

If you’ve visited the Grand Pier, you may be fooled into believing you’ve seen everything there is to offer, but there are some amazing spaces tucked away from the view of our day visitors, including the impressive Regency Suite with its own private balcony and panoramic views, as well as an exclusive use bar and space for up to 300 guests.

The Tiffany Room is also available for wedding ceremonies and receptions for up to 150 guests and is located at the furthest point out to sea with the best views in town (if not the whole of the South West!) We also have a wedding preparation room for any last-minute finishing touches, outfit changes or just somewhere for a little breather.

When it comes to food, there are so many options to choose from; you can treat your guests to seaside classics such as locally-sourced fish and chips, whippy ice creams and candyfloss on sticks, enjoy a deliciously indulgent afternoon tea with your choice of sweet and savoury treats, or you have the opportunity to create your own menus with your favourite dishes prepared by our super-star chefs.

Our dedicated and seriously talented wedding team can help to plan and organise your big day with you, and our packages are designed to ensure we have something for everyone’s tastes and budgets. But, most importantly of all, we are super-flexible, so if you have an idea, however quirky it may seem, we do all we can to make your dream a reality!

Sprinkle some seaside magic on your wedding day and say ‘I do’ with a day filled with fun, love and laughter (and maybe a few screams!) whilst giving your guests a day to remember.

 

• Fun, quirky and unique seaside wedding venue, located one quarter of a mile out to sea • Theme park and amusement arcades (exclusive use available on request) • Beautiful, hidden-away ceremony and reception rooms for up to 300 guests • Right on the beach with the most amazing, panoramic views • Vibrant, colourful and fun photo opportunities • Endless options and flexibility, with something for all budgets

Punches above its weight in every respect!
Venue Service

By Rose, on 28 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Jul 2019

The Grand Pier exceeded all our expectations – on their price, food, service, and tailoring the offering to our needs. Cat, our wedding planner, was responsive and worked with us to realise our dreams. We had not tasted the food before, so it was a bit of a leap of faith. It was really delicious and many guests commented on how tasty and beautifully presented the four course dinner was. The Tiffany has spectacular views throughout the day. It looked great with long tables for 90, and space for a dance floor included. On the night, the team, especially Charlotte, worked with military precision to get all the timings perfect. The price of the venue was extremely reasonable and the service offered could not have been better. Getting to use the rides/ arcade was a really fun touch that the guests loved, both those young and old. It was truly an unforgettable day and can't recommend it enough!

Just ecstatic

I wanted to say that we were blown away by the service offered but the Pier. You were so responsive and helpful all the way through. The room looked amazing on the night, it was better than I could have hoped for and many guests said how stunning it looked. The service of all the staff was fantastic. Charlotte was so on it on the night and organised on the floor. The food was delicious. All in all we were just ecstatic at how it turned out and you and the team did an amazing job. Thank you Cat for everything!

The most awesome time
Venue Service

By Adam and Katie, on 24 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 05 Jul 2019

We both had the most awesome time, the food was yummy, atmosphere relaxed and everything flowed smoothly - which is just how we wanted it. Thank you for all your help with that. Thank you too for being so flexible and chopping and changing the plan to suit our spur-of-the-moment ideas and work around our beach photography moments. The ceremony room set-up and dinner tables looked marvellous and you and your team did a fantastic job - it couldn't have suited us, or looked any better! :) Several people have said how great the day was and a few even rating it as one of the best days in their lives! Thank you again for making our special day really special and everything that we wanted from it! We really really appreciate it.

The most fabulous wedding on the Grand Pier
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Wilmott, on 24 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 01 May 2018

Thank you so very much for making our wedding day so very, very special. What a memorable day it was. We are so glad we chose the Tiffany Room as our venue, it looked absolutely stunning. The food was also amazing. Meeting friends and family after the event they, like us, are still talking about the most fabulous wedding they went to on the Grand Pier

The most amazing day ever
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Barnard, on 24 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Jul 2017

I know everyone says their wedding was the most amazing day ever – but this one really was! Everything you did, all your hard work and long hours paid off – the room looked fantastic, both for the ceremony and the wedding breakfast. Everyone commented on the excellent food – the heart shaped croutons in the soup were a lovely touch! The serving staff were unobtrusive but always to hand, very polite and helpful.

Most amazing day ever
Venue Service

By Paul & Julia Harper, on 09 Apr 2014

Just to say we had our wedding on the pier at Weston super mare on 21/09/2013, it was the most amazing day ever, we couldn't have been looked after better, our wedding planner Gayle was with us from the first moment we met at the wedding fayre until the day of our wedding, I can honestly say she was priceless. She was with us on our wedding day until the end of the night, she went over and above board on what she did, we had our venue in the Tiffany Room which we had all day for everything, it was amazing from the decor to the waiters they were out of this world. As we had a civil ceremony we had to have registrars brought in, they were so kind and more than willing to explain anything we needed to know. All our guests commented on the day on how brilliant a venue it was, I can't praise everyone enough for their hard work especially Gayle who we couldn't have done it without, thank you isn't enough.

Professional and attention to detail
Venue Service

By Louise Urch, on 09 Apr 2014

Both myself and David were delighted with how the day went: The professionalism and attention to detail of you and your team ensured everything ran smoothly and that we could relax, enjoy our day and the sight of all our guests having a wonderful time. Everyone commented on the beauty of the venue and the exemplary quality of the catering and hospitality - some now have plans to book their own parties and events with you, as they enjoyed the day so much. I have recommended the Pier to everyone who has asked about our wedding. In my opinion, we could not have made a better choice of venue. Special credit must go to you, Abbie: You have been a joy to work with from the day we booked our wedding and were fortunate enough to have you assigned as our event coordinator. Your tireless work before and on the day was absolutely key to it's success. We are both so grateful to you for playing such a starring role in making our special day the very best it could have been.
