Get married at a museum! Blaise Museum is licensed for civil wedding ceremonies, civil partnership ceremonies and naming ceremonies.

This beautiful historic house is set in 400 acres of landscaped parkland and has been a museum for well over 50 years. The displays here feature a wide selection of toys and games, intriguing domestic equipment and costume dating from the 1730s to the present day.

Tie the knot in our sumptuous Picture Room surrounded by paintings from Bristol’s fine art collection or say ‘I do’ outside in the pretty Dairy Garden. The choice is yours.
