I would really recommend this stunning wedding venue. Kings Weston House has just been completely refurbished and has once again opened its doors for weddings and events. I went along to visit their recent opening and wedding fair on a sunny September. The country house is steeped in history and a wonderful space for a reception party, plus it is also a great backdrop for wedding photographs! 

Kings Weston House was built between 1712 and 1719 was designed by Sir John Vanbrugh for Edward Southwell on the site of an earlier Tudor house, remodelled 1763-1768 by Robert Mylne and again between 1845 and 1850 by Thomas Hopper. A significant architectural feature is the grouping of all the chimneys into a massive arcade. The Kings Weston estate possesses one of the largest collections of buildings designed by Sir John Vanbrugh in the UK. Whilst the house and the majority of the estate buildings are still standing others have been demolished or been heavily altered. Bristol is the only UK city outside of London to possess buildings designed by Vanbrugh.
