Few places in the UK can match Bath for its stunning architecture. And with a wide range of top-notch wedding venues, it's no surprise that the city is one of the most popular locations for couples looking for a memorable wedding in a glorious setting. This blog features some of the best wedding venues in Bath which I have photographed.
Royal Crescent Hotel
Occupying the central portion of architect John Wood's stunning 1774 terrace, the Royal Crescent Hotel is in fact surprisingly spacious, with secluded garden on the convex side of the crescent itself (pictured below). With the feel of a stately home, the hotel has several event spaces, including a wedding garden (for up to 30 guests for al fresco dining) and the Dower House Restaurant for up to 50.

The Roman Baths
Probably the single most iconic location in the whole of Bath, the Roman Baths provide an event and wedding venue like no other. Where else can you sip champagne on 2000 year-old paving stones, while gazing at the reflections of flickering torchlight reflected in a Roman pool? In fact it won the accolade of Best Historic Venue in 2017's UK Wedding Awards.

At the end of Bath's most complete Georgian street, Great Pulteney Street, is the Holburne Museum. For a wedding photographer, the museum presents a wide range of gorgeous backdrops, from its Palladian west facade (below) to the artworks inside and elegant Sydney Gardens immediately to the east.
The Guildhall is one of several historic wedding venues owned and run by BANES (Bath and North East Somerset) Council. Wedding ceremonies can be held in a range of rooms ranging from the intimate to the grandiose. For wedding receptions, the Banqueting Room can accommodate up to 360 in style.
