The award winning Assembly Rooms is one of Bath’s most prestigious venues and has been at the heart of the city’s social life since the 18th century. With its original C18th Whitefriars crystal chandeliers and high ceilings, the Grade I Listed venue is a stylish and magical setting for a wedding.
Designed by John Wood the Younger in 1769 this fine set of public rooms was purpose built for a particular eighteenth century form of entertainment: the assembly. When they were completed in 1771, they were described as ' the most noble and elegant of any in the kingdom'. Today, the Assembly Rooms have everything necessary for a stylish city wedding. There are four inter connecting rooms of varying sizes providing versatile space for weddings with 50-500 guests.
The Great Octagon holds up to 120 guests for a ceremony and features four original marble fireplaces and the largest chandelier in the collection. The Tea Room with its double columned balcony, original fireplaces and three stunning chandeliers makes the perfect backdrop to ceremonies for up to 250 guests. For larger groups, the Ball Room, with its intricate plasterwork, five chandeliers and balcony is the largest eighteenth century room in Bath and can accomodate up to 500 guests for a truly spectacular ceremony.
