Bath is an incredible city brimming with history and Regency romance. Scenes from Netflix’s Bridgerton were filmed all over the city making the most of the stunning Georgian architecture. One of the locations, the Assembly Rooms, the setting for one of the opulent ballroom scenes, is also luckily a wedding venue. The chandeliers within the building are priceless and are a wonderful feature to stand beneath while you exchange your vows.
The Assembly Rooms, one of Bath’s finest Georgian buildings, was purpose built in 1771 for a particular 18th century form of entertainment: the assembly; ‘a stated and general meeting of the polite persons of both sexes for the sake of conversation, gallantry, news and play’. These are the activities that the beloved Bridgerton characters were involved in during the series and it’s wonderful that this venue can still be used today for what it was originally designed for.
If you’re looking for romance, style and a truly beautiful location, this is the venue for you. Not only can the building offer a stunning backdrop for wedding photographs the iconic Royal Crescent and Royal Victoria Park, which also feature in the series, are just a short stroll away.
Perfect for an intimate wedding or a larger celebration when conditions allow, the bright and airy spaces in the Assembly Rooms are perfect for social distancing and there is also a small south-facing garden where you and your guests can enjoy a drinks reception, subject to government guidance. Many more safety regimes have also been put in place to look after you and your guests.

Micro weddings and post pandemic celebrations at the Roman Baths
Current government restrictions allow for small weddings and although these guidelines may have stripped away grand celebrations, the real heart of a wedding is still possible – exchanging vows and showing your commitment to one another in front of your nearest and dearest.
It may be difficult to limit guest numbers, but some couples have actually embraced this – especially those struggling with the expectation of a huge wedding when they hoped for something more intimate. Elopement and micro weddings have become extremely popular.
Pippa and Chris were recently married at the Roman Baths: “The Roman Baths has stood for 2000 years and is timeless and beautiful regardless of lockdowns and pandemics. It was perfect for our original plan of 60 people and it was equally special with only 7. Having a unique space like that to yourselves is a once in a lifetime experience.
We count ourselves lucky to have been working with such an understanding venue. The Bath’s Historic Venues team were the best people to have on our side throughout this whole experience, they were great at communicating with us about the new guidelines and letting us know what was our responsibility and what was theirs. We changed our date twice and both times it was no stress, this helped us so much and gave us the confidence to go ahead with the day. It was the perfect day”.
The unique and historic space at the Roman Baths is outdoor and sheltered, with plenty of space for guests to distance. The Terrace overlooking the steaming waters of the Great Bath is an atmospheric spot for a meal afterwards, and the events team can help plan your seating to meet government guidelines.
