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.

All our guests were wowed
Thank you both for everything! We had the most wonderful wedding 2 weeks ago. What an amazing venue. All our guests were wowed and everyone was so thrilled to have had the extraordinary experience. Everything went perfectly on the day... All in all, we couldn't have asked for anything better. It was a perfect morning... Thank you to all of the staff who played a part in the baths and the pump room, and for all of your correspondence and help throughout.

The baths are a truly beautiful location and made for the perfect setting for our wedding. Everyone was so helpful and genuinely seemed very happy for us.

You have been absolutely marvellous
We had a fabulous time with you all at the Baths, and everyone who came to the ceremony said what an absolutely magical place it was to have a wedding at. You have been absolutely marvellous too and I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done to make this happen.

It was an amazing experience.
We want to say a massive “thank you” to you, for providing us the most amazing venue for our wedding. We couldn’t believe our luck when offered the initial date (for 2020) two years ago, then the following one in May (2021), finally this one on 4th of Sep 2021. It was the exactly one year later. We are just blessed. Our guests were delighted, impressed, honoured to be with us at our wedding. We've been receiving lots of fabulous shots for the venue since. It was an amazing experience. Nothing is too much for you. We are so grateful to the team Roman Baths, your patience, your understanding during this unique uncertain time. We will have special fondness every time when we pass by our favourite spot in town, it will remain so for the rest of our life.

So magical
It was so magical and our family and friends said how wonderful it was, my sisters said they knew it would be lovely but it was more wonderful than they expected. I realised that the Roman Baths and Pump Rooms was the most special and personal place for us to get married.
