"I cannot thank you all enough for our wonderfully magical wedding. We knew our venue was amazing, but there is not a word for just how out of this world it actually was". Nikki Mayes
Situated at the centre of the World Heritage City, the Roman Baths and Pump Room is without doubt one of the most delightful buildings in the country. Unique and steeped in history, it is the perfect setting for your romantic day. The venue is suitable for an intimate group up to much larger wedding parties. There are two options when using the Roman Baths and Pump Room for your wedding: either in the morning or in the evening.
With its steaming waters and subtle torchlight, the Great Bath is a stunning venue for a civil ceremony at 8.30am and is perfect for both small groups and parties of up to 100 people. This could then be followed with a wedding breakfast in the elegant Georgian Pump Room. If you wanted to continue your celebrations, you could hire the Kingston Room or Drawing Room, which are suitable for up to 50 people, or for larger numbers, you could use a room at the Guildhall or Assembly Rooms.
A Sunset Wedding is an enchanting and atmospheric evening, with friends and family gathered on the Roman paving around the waters of the Great Bath. Beyond the classical statues on the Terrace above, Bath Abbey will be illuminated, and there will be steam, flickering torchlight and Champagne - a recipe for a magical evening. This option suits couples who have 40 guests or more, who would like the option of following their ceremony with a reception. After your 7.30pm ceremony around the Great Bath, you can choose to continue your celebrations in either the maginficent Pump Room or the Terrace and Reception Hall.
Alternatively, in the evening you can celebrate with a drinks reception around the Great Bath from 7pm followed by dinner and dancing in the Pump Room.
