Sammy Walden | 15 Oct 2010, 12:00Perfect wedding at the Assembly RoomsWe were married in the Assembly Rooms in July 2010, and it really was wonderful! We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful venue, more helpful staff, or a more perfect day. The Octagon Room was the perfect place to get married, it’s a beautiful room and has a fantastic, ‘stately’ feel to it. We then had reception drinks in the Card Room/ courtyard, followed by the wedding breakfast in the Tea Room: the layout of the rooms made the whole event flow really well, our guests mingled happily and there was no separation which can sometimes happen at weddings. In the evening, too, it was great having the Card Room and courtyard for people looking to move away from the music and have a chat. From start to finish, the Assembly Rooms and Bath’s Historic Buildings staff were outstanding, nothing was too much trouble and we were so impressed, and grateful to them, for making our day so perfect and making us feel special. It can be a bit nerve-wracking in the lead up to the day itself, especially with so many things to remember and making sure all the little details are sorted out, so having friendly and helpful staff to chat to really makes all the difference. The building itself is elegant and has a fantastic atmosphere. There are no words to describe how amazing the Tea Room looked (although I’ll give it a try), it took our breath away when we made our entrance. It was just magical – the blinds were down, the chandeliers looked stunning and there was just a sea of flowers and tea lights, and to us, it looked like the most romantic place in the world! A special mention must go to the caterers, Searcy, too, as the staff were fantastic and attentive and the food was superb, every single guest commented on it, and how they’d never tasted anything like it. All in all, without a doubt the best day of our lives. I’d recommend the beautiful and historic Assembly Rooms to anyone looking for somewhere stunning and memorable to get married – you won’t be disappointed.
