Assembly Rooms and Roman Baths win UK Wedding Awards
Two Bath & North East Somerset Council-run venues have been recognised in the UK Wedding Awards 2017.
The Assembly Rooms was named Best City Wedding Venue, while the Roman Baths and Pump Room won Best Historic Wedding Venue.
Organised by Hitched, Perfect Wedding and You & Your Wedding magazines, the awards recognise the very best of the UK wedding industry.
Despite thousands of entries from all over the UK, the two Bath venues were shortlisted in January 2017 and a public vote decided the winners.
Cllr Patrick Anketell-Jones, (Conservative, Lansdown) Cabinet Member for Economic Development, said: “We are lucky in Bath to have such inspiring spaces available for weddings and private events. The venues’ history, unique surroundings, quality food and excellent service all contributed to winning these awards.”
Bath’s Historic Venues (part of Bath & North East Somerset Council) manages private hire for the Assembly Rooms, Roman Baths and Pump Room, Guildhall and Victoria Art Gallery. All are available for weddings, parties and corporate events.
