Arguably Bristol’s most impressive wedding venue – this immaculately restored, grade II-listed, former bank building is home to three great event rooms - including the spectacular Sansovino Hall - for wedding ceremonies, receptions and breakfasts up to 400 guests.

An exceptional venue

All Harbour Hotels are known for their stunning locations, and the Bristol Harbour Hotel & Spa is no exception. Surely there is nowhere more romantic to tie the knot than this architecturally spectacular, grade II-listed building in the heart of the city.

We've transformed our grand Sansovino into a beautiful and more intimate venue for you to celebrate your marriage with a smaller number of guests. Enjoy the grandeur of this historic property while feeling cosy, close and connected to your guests.
