Covid-secure Weddings at Bath’s Historic Venues

If getting married now is important to you, you don’t have to delay. It’s completely possible to have a wonderful wedding at one of Bath’s Historic Venues. Whilst weddings at the present time may be smaller and perhaps simpler, they are no less meaningful or beautiful.

Timeless venues perfect for intimate and elopement weddings

The Roman Baths, Assembly Rooms and Victoria Art Gallery, with their unique charm and atmosphere, are perfect locations for the smallest of weddings. In line with government guidance these venues will be available for small wedding ceremonies only with up to six people from 29th March, increasing to 15 people from 12th April (subject to government approval).

If you would like to exchange your vows soon but want to celebrate with friends and family at a later date, take advantage of our discounted Marry Now Party Later wedding offer. Alternatively, you may prefer to keep things very small and simple with the Roman Baths Elopement Package

At the Roman Baths ceremonies can take place at either 8.30am or 7.30pm. The unique and historic venue 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. 

The eclectic range of artworks at the Victoria Art Gallery offer a quirky backdrop for a small wedding ceremony. The venue needs little dressing or styling if you are keeping things simple.  

Whilst the Grade I listed Assembly Rooms is most frequently associated with large events, you could exchange your vows beneath one of the priceless chandeliers and have an opulent, Regency wedding day.

Book with confidence

“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.” Pippa, July 2020

We are offering refunds in line with the latest government advice - if we need to postpone your wedding due to the pandemic, we will offer a full refund or reschedule your wedding to another comparable date. We will not charge you any cancellation or postponement fees.
