Leigh Court, Bristol

Shielded from the bustle of Bristol city by Leigh Woods, this honey-coloured Grade II* listed wedding venue was designed by architect Thomas Hopper for Bristol's first recorded millionaire, Sir Philip John Miles. Built in 1814 from Bath stone, its graceful Palladian architecture includes grand columns and terraces. Inside, its bold Greek-revival style is showcased through original features, a stunning floating staircase and an ornate ceiling. Sweeping lawns, which lead to fields and woodland, provide plenty of space for a marquee, a tipi or an outdoor reception.
Let's celebrate! All of the ground-floor rooms are licensed for ceremonies. The Great Hall (110 guests) can offer an elegant bridal entrance down the sweeping staircase, while some couples favour the grandeur of the blush-coloured Morning Room or the exquisite golden Tapestry Room. The Library and The Salon are perfect for couples who want a ceremony room that spills out on to the lawns.
We love... Leigh Court can host huge, grand affairs. Receptions can take place for up to 400 guests in one or all of the ground-floor rooms, or a marquee can be hired separately for even bigger celebrations.
