They have held many wedding ceremonies on their unlicensed land, offering marquees, kitchen facilities, beautiful gardens and an eco-friendly environment that so many couples look for these days. No set packages mean there are no rules to the service, but many brides choose to use the avenue of trees as a make-shift aisle. As for accommodation, your guests can bring a tent and pitch up for a low-cost and very fun overnight stay.

Your dreams could come true at Bristol Zoo Gardens, which provides you with a gorgeous 1920’s building for your ceremony and then gives you access to the zoo for photographs and entertainment.

This would certainly be a wedding to remember and they love a good celebrant led wedding!
