Sunrise Ceremonies at the Roman Baths

Suited to both an elopement wedding or a much larger ceremony, a Sunrise Wedding at the Roman Baths will provide a truly romantic start to your special day. This is perfect for couples wanting something unique and a little less formal.

What could be more romantic than exchanging your vows amid the flickering torchlight and rising steam from the waters of the Great Bath? Steeped in thousands of years of history, this beautifully preserved Roman site which yields around 1,200,000 litres of hot water daily is a multi-award winning museum by day, and available for private hire out of hours. Sunrise wedding ceremonies at 8.30am are perfect for a more intimate occasion with little fuss. They are held at the water's edge, with full view of the magnificent Bath Abbey - we are also non weather dependent because the ancient paving surrounding the Bath is covered by the soffits from the Terrace above.

After your ceremony, you might like to continue your celebrations with a wedding breakfast in the elegant adjoining Pump Room, famous for its inclusion in Jane Austen's novel Northanger Abbey.
