Bristol Wedding

Famous for the many early voyages of exploration that started in its docks, nowadays it is still one of the best connected cities of the UK, with fast motorway links in all directions. It has many media, financial and electronics businesses, and those, together with the universities and other educational ventures create the modern day wealth. Bristol’s beautiful buildings, not least in Clifton, were built on the income provided by the earlier, tainted legacy of the slavers. Nevertheless, they remain an elegant background to any ceremony. The Avon Gorge is also one of the most impressive sights in the country, and a walk across the suspension bridge is a must for all visitors.
