The UniLit is one of the top wedding venues in Bristol.

We hold a Civil Ceremony Licence so you and your guests can spend all day in the club, enjoying your wedding ceremony, reception and evening celebration in beautiful Georgian splendour in the heart of Bristol. We pride ourselves on our personal and flexible service and will work with you to ensure you have a perfect day to remember.

We are proud to offer a unique wedding planning service. We have a dedicated wedding coordinator and once you have booked your special day at the UniLit you will receive our complimentary leaflets, offering advice on such details as readings and music for the ceremony, the role of the best man and ushers, order of the speeches, seating plans, etc.

Wedding ceremonies and receptions are held in the magnificent air-conditioned Cabot Suite on the first floor. This looks out on the University Tower and City Museum to one side and to the other offers views across Berkeley Square gardens (where you may choose to have your photographs) to the Cabot Tower on Brandon Hill, offering an idyllic location for your wedding day.

When we host your wedding we invite you to treat the UniLit as your home for the day. In addition to the Cabot Suite, you will have use of the adjoining bar and, on the ground floor, a further bar and the beautifully furnished members lounge (available on Saturday or Sunday). The lounge is an excellent location for you and your guests to enjoy some quiet moments in the evening.

During your wedding you may also like to make use of one of our smaller reception rooms on the second floor, perhaps for a children's entertainer or party games!

While planning the music for your special day, please note that we offer a full PA system for use during the ceremony. We are also happy to help with arrangements for a disco or band in the evening.

When it comes to the catering on your wedding day, you obviously want to celebrate in style. The UniLit offers an extensive wine list. For your wedding breakfast you may choose from our extensive buffet or traditional menus, however if you have a specific dish in mind our chef will be happy to discuss your requirements.

Book your wedding with us at the UniLit and you will enjoy:

  • the expertise of our dedicated wedding coordinator
  • white linen napkins and tablecloths
  • use of the full PA system in the Cabot suite
  • a choice of round or square cake stands and knife
  • air-conditioning in the Cabot suite and both bars

...not to mention our great food and wine and the beautiful surroundings.
