If you’re looking for a unique wedding venue brimming with history, look no further than the Assembly Rooms in Bath.
This elegant building was built in the 1770s as a place for social events and 'assemblies', often with the famous - from Jane Austen and Charles Dickens, to today's royalty and celebrities.
Located in a peaceful and leafy part of the city near to the iconic Royal Crescent, the Assembly Rooms is the perfect wedding venue. With the finest set of 18th century chandeliers in the world, ornate balconies and high ceilings, the venue itself is a beautiful backdrop for wedding photos, whatever the weather - a necessity in our unpredictable British climate.
With space for ceremony, drinks reception and seated dinner or wedding party, this is an extremely flexible venue. Different sized rooms can accommodate from 40 to 400 guests and the adjoining garden is well suited to summer drinks receptions.
Our contracted caterer Searcys, who cater at a number of prestigious venues around the country including the Gherkin in London and Blenheim Palace, offer the highest quality food and plenty of flexibility with their menus.
From street food and party catering to a four course dinner, they will be able to suit the ambience you want for your wedding day.
"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."
