Full Description
If a magical location with incredible atmosphere and photo opportunities matches your vision of the perfect wedding, this is the venue for you. Located in Bath, arguably the most beautiful city in the country, the Roman Baths is a unique ancient monument available for wedding ceremonies and receptions, suiting a variety of sizes and budgets. Couples frequently elope to the Roman Baths while others choose to have intimate and grand celebrations. Enjoy an outdoor wedding by flickering torchlight with the security of being undercover, always safe from the unpredictable British weather. Immerse yourselves in the romance of a Sunrise or Sunset torch-lit ceremony, where you will exchange your vows on the 2000-year-old Roman paving alongside the naturally thermal waters - the Great Bath is continuously filled with hot flowing water which rises up bubbling from deep underground, warmed by the heat of the earth’s core. Following a Sunrise Ceremony and photographs, you have the freedom to celebrate as you wish. Why not experience a special wedding breakfast in the iconic Pump Room above, book a private boat on the River Avon or take a dip in the naturally hot spring water at Thermae Bath Spa? Bath has so much to offer and the choices are endless. After a Sunset Ceremony, couples can choose to celebrate with a seated dinner and dancing or a less formal catered party in the adjoining Georgian Pump Room or enclosed Terrace overlooking the thermal Baths.

It was all in a word perfect!
We feel lucky that venues like the Bath Assembly Rooms and the Roman Baths are available to hire for events like this, as did our guests. In fact, we’ve lost count of the number of guests who told us how much they loved the venues, how great it was to use the Bath Assembly Rooms to “assemble” as they were originally designed for, and how atmospheric the Roman Baths were on the night. It was all, in a word, perfect!... It has been a pleasure working with you from beginning to end.

Everyone made our wedding absolutely perfect!!

A massive thank you
We just wanted to drop you a message to say a massive THANK YOU for all that you did for us up to and on our wedding day! Your team made everything run so smoothly we couldn’t fault it and we couldn’t have wanted anything more. The day went so well and we have had so many comments on how stunning the venue was and so unique! We loved every bit of it from the intimate gathering by the Baths to the Food and Maisie was brilliant co-ordinating it all for us.

Standing next to a 2000 year old bath under torchlight...
Standing next to a 2000 year old bath under torchlight with the steam rising cannot be surpassed by any other venue. The professionalism of from the staff from concept to execution was second to none with a full understanding of our theme and exemplory choreography. Despite the formality of the setting and the occasion, the staff were relaxed, approachable and became good friends. Our guests were in awe of the venue and its setting and many have said it's the best wedding they have ever been to.
