Gothic Alternative Wedding Venue in Bristol

Arnos Vale Cemetery is the perfect venue for an off-beat / alternative wedding.

With 45 acres of stunning woodland and a Victorian graveyard, it has everything you could want for a quirky wedding.

Jess & Matt fell in love with the place and thought it was the perfect choice for their wedding day.

This was my first visit to this at this amazing location, and to met Jess and Matt.

I wanted to have a good look around the venue and explore the victorian graveyard.

Their style suited the quirky location perfectly. 

Matt with his black leather jacket looked cool against the colourful graffiti walls.

Jess with her purple hair and funky gothic tattoos fitted the dark woodland area amazingly.

We walked through the beautiful autumnal leaves, had fun playing in the trees.

Of course, there were spooky tombstones and cemetery memorabilia to send a shiver down the spine.

There is so much to explore at Arnos Vale Cemetary and I see why people call it Bristol’s hidden gem.

I love this place and am very excited at the prospect of more alternative gothic weddings in the future here.
