'Our wedding in the Upper Gallery of the Victoria Art Gallery was absolutely wonderful and very unusual! The venue is beautiful, full of lovely artworks, the staff so friendly and helpful and our guests were amazed that we could marry in an art gallery. We enjoyed our wedding and party so much, we already want to hold another party at this fabulous venue' . Sue Lucy, Bath, 2017
