Venue Spotlight: SS Great Britain

One great thing about getting married in Bristol is the huge choice of venues and there's not many cities in the UK where you can say I Do on an historic ship. The SS Great Britain was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and was first launched from Bristol in 1843. Whilst in service she travelled around the world 31 times before eventually mooring in the Falklands.

She was brought back home to Bristol in the 1970s where she was carefully conserved in the same dry dock she was built in all those years ago. I think the incredible history of the ship makes it a venue worth consideration for any Bristol Brides.



Ceremonies for up to 70 can take place in the Promenade Deck, which could be followed by drink and canapes on deck and a reception in the first class dining saloon for up to 140 guests. These photos from Jefferson Studios above show a ceremony aboard the ship.

The great black and white shot below from Iris Weddings shows off the ceremony space beautifully
