Rennie, who has 20 caps for Scotland, has been at the club on loan this season and has scored seven tries in nine games. He has signed a permanent two-year contract with Bristol and is delighted to be joining the club.
"Ever since I arrived at the start of the year I've been made to feel incredibly welcome by the players, coaching staff and supporters," Rennie said. "I had been told that Bristol was a passionate rugby city, but playing in front of our supporters at the Mem and the interaction that the players have with the fans has really emphasized that. It's a great place to be.
"I want to be playing in the top flight and regularly representing my country - I'm confident that I can achieve that playing for Bristol. I'd like to thank everybody at Edinburgh Rugby - I've had an incredible time playing there and will hold many fond memories."
Rennie will be joined by Brooker at the club who has penned a two-year contract to join from Worcester. Bristol boss Andy Robinson said: "Chris has got plenty of experience and a real appetite to achieve success. He's earned recognition with England Saxons, which is a testament to his attitude. We're building a squad that we believe can compete at the top level, Chris' addition adds another string to our bow."
