Shielded from the city bustle by Leigh Woods, the beautiful Leigh Court was designed by architect Thomas Hopper in 1814 for Bristol’s first recorded millionaire. The design of this graceful Grade II listed mansion combines elegant Palladian architecture with opulent Greek revival interiors and lavish 19th-century décor.

Leigh Court’s interior retains many of its original features from 1814, including the ornate high ceilings in the ground floor rooms and the breathtaking double floating staircase in the Great Hall.

You can choose to hold your ceremony in one of five tastefully decorated rooms, depending on the size and style of your wedding, or in a marquee on the extensive lawns. All of the stunning ground floor rooms are licensed for ceremonies. The fairytale staircase lit by 40 skylights in the Great Hall makes it a popular choice for 120 ceremony guests. Other original features include a marble and stone pattern floor and a working pipe organ. Meanwhile, the blush-coloured Morning Room with its floor- to-ceiling windows and 19th-century fireplace, along with the exquisite gold-embellished Tapestry Room are favoured by couples looking for an intimate venue. The latter can both accommodate 65 guests for the “I dos.” The Library and Salon (also 65 ceremony guests) are perfect if you want to bring the outside in as you say your vows, as they both open out directly onto the magnificent lawns.

When it comes to the reception, you’re spoilt for choice here. Celebrations can be held in one or all of the spaces that make up the suite of ground floor rooms, which include the Tapestry Room (56 dining guests), the Library (109 guests), the Salon (56 dining guests), the Outer Hall, the Morning Room (56 dining guests) and the bar and lounge. When all rooms are hired the house can host 250 guests for the wedding breakfast and 400 for the evening revelries – even more if you chose to add
a marquee.
