Jane Austen Fans Dreaming of Elegance and Romance

The Assembly Rooms is one of Bath's most prestigious venues, consisting of four stunning, interconnecting rooms which were used for balls and entertainment in Georgian times and were a local haunt for Jane Austen. Nowadays, the venue continues to host gatherings and is suited to larger weddings and parties. The rooms are flooded with natural light, well-proportioned and impeccably maintained, with original chandeliers, balconies and fireplaces. A small formal garden is available for summer drinks, and the Circus, Royal Victoria Park and the Royal Crescent are just a short walk away, giving you a choice of breathtaking outdoor locations for wedding photography. This is the perfect venue for those wanting a touch of elegance that is quintessentially Bath.

The Guildhall cannot be beaten on grandeur and flexibility. Not only does it house the Banqueting Room, one of the most decorative and beautiful Georgian rooms in the region, you can choose your own caterer in this sought-after venue. With its glittering chandeliers, royal portraits and decorative mouldings, it is a lovely location for a wedding day and the nearby Parade Gardens is just a short stroll away for riverside photographs.

Art-Buffs Wanting Somewhere Inspiring but Simple

The Victoria Art Gallery is a perfect venue for all those art lovers out there. You can choose to exchange your vows in one of two galleries and beside an artwork of your choice, which will, of course, very much depend on individual taste. An evening wedding ceremony here is informal and relaxed with your guests gathered around you, if you choose to have any at all. Like the Guildhall, you can choose your own caterer to provide celebratory drinks following your ceremony.
