About Leigh Court

Leigh Court is a beautiful 19th century Palladian Mansion in a gorgeous historical setting. Surrounded by 27 acres of ancient wooded grounds and lush green lawns, located on the edge of Bristol it is the perfect charming countryside wedding venue.

With spectacular spaces for any type of wedding, from the most intimate day in the Tapestry Room to hiring a marquee out on the grounds, the house can be hired exclusively, with a dedicated and flexible team supporting you.

Picture yourself sweeping down our grand double staircase in the Great Hall. Impressive period décor adorns the hall, with many of the original Greek revival styled features still retained, this is the perfect area for a ceremony or even a drinks reception whilst your guests marvel at the striking ceiling and our original and unusual pipe organ.

Our award-winning caterer has menus to suit all tastes and requirements, using seasonal produce and locally sourced food, so our menus can be designed to suit you. From a traditional 3 course sit down wedding breakfast, delicious canapés to a relaxed, informal succulent barbecue in our gardens, the options are endless. Drinks packages are also a fantastic inclusion in your dining experience, from cocktails to champagne and more.

Your wedding at Leigh Court can be as unique and personalised as you wish it to be.

Our Sustainability Commitments

Here at Leigh Court, we strive to improve our carbon footprint and produce sustainable and eco friendly options where possible. Our beautiful grade II listed building certainly poses some challenges when trying to reduce our environmental impact, but some of the solutions we’ve come up with have been highly innovative! It’s easy to work towards a common goal when we hire teams that have the same agenda; all our staff are passionate about putting time and effort into reducing our carbon footprint. Let’s look at five of the main changes we have made to ensure that Leigh Court is becoming a more sustainable wedding venue: 1) We offset our emissions for all our weddings at Leigh Court via Ecologi and for every wedding held here, we plant trees as a gift to the couple. 2) When planning weddings with our couples, we often help them source their decorations and other supplies from pre-loved sites for weddings and also consider eco or charitable wedding favours if they are having them. 3) We have eliminated as much single use plastic from our catering operation by changing to glass bottles, cans, bamboo and compostable containers, and when we do have to use plastic, we make sure it as sustainable as it can be. 4) We also have food collection bins in all kitchens which is taken to an Anaerobic Digestion facility where it is processed and ultimately converted into renewable energy. We use Terracycle to collect and recycle single use plastic, outside of what is collected by our waste contractor. 5) We allow our wedding guests to use confetti, but only if it’s biodegradable. Many of our couples prefer to choose rose petals as they are small and light, and as they are untreated, they are perfect to go back into the ground with zero environmental impact on the surrounding area.
