Chester Zoo shares first images of its new wedding venue, The Square

Bride standing in front of The Square wedding venue at Chester Zoo The very first images of Chester Zoo's new wedding and events venue, The Square, have been released, much to our excitement! The luxury 200-capacity venue is now open, following a three-year project to restore the Grade II listed stable block at the heart of the Zoo.

Jamie Christon, CEO at Chester Zoo says, “There’s nothing else quite like this stunning new venue anywhere in the UK. It’s an incredible building that’s stood at the heart of the zoo for approaching a century and, through careful restoration, it’s now been brought to life. It’s a one-of-a-kind space which not only embodies the Zoo’s rich history and character, but offers modern luxuries and comforts. What’s more, who wouldn’t want to get married surrounded by 27,000 animals?

“Most importantly, each and every occasion that takes place at The Square will contribute to our charitable mission to prevent extinction, helping us to secure a brighter future for wildlife worldwide. That’s what makes our new venue incredibly special and we can’t wait to start welcoming people to it.”
