Sunrise Ceremonies at the Roman Baths

Whether you would like an intimate wedding for two, or a much larger ceremony, a Sunrise Wedding at the Roman Baths will provide a truly romantic start to your special day. It is the perfect venue for the smaller celebration or for couples wanting something a little less formal and unique.

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 the Roman Baths are perfect for a more intimate occasion, commencing at 8.30am all year round. The venue is fully licenced for a civil ceremony and services are usually 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. Alternatively you might choose the lovely Roman Baths Kitchen, just across the Abbey Churchyard.
