Last year, I had a really exciting booking for Emily & Stew's wedding in Bath. Not only are they getting married in the beautiful city of Bath, they are getting married at The Roman Baths! What a stunning wedding venue and so individual. It's not everyday you get to photograph a wedding in such a beautiful and historic venue. If anyone is thinking of a slightly unique venue then The Roman Baths is definitely top of the list! Emily & Stew's evening wedding was just stunning and a pleasure to photograph. I had such a fun day with these two!
The day started at 7pm, after The Roman Baths had closed to the public. The tourists all left and the venue was quickly turned into a stunning, whimsical wedding venue in the heart of Bath town. The ceremony took place in the main baths, wrapping around the soft greens of the water. Guests assembled surrounding the baths, standing, waiting for the bride to walk down the aisle.
After a rainy start to the evening and a dash into cover, the ceremony was very relaxed and full of laughter. Emily and Stew had asked an opera singer to perform during the ceremony, who they came across singing on a visit to Bath. Her voice echoed around the ancient pillars, it was truly beautiful. Emily's beautiful flowers were picked by Jill Jeffries and dress by Maggie Sottero.
Vows were exchanged, champagne poured and after the happy couple mingled with their guests the party made their way into The Pump Room, a grand, elegant room for the wedding breakfast. Or in this case, wedding dinner! Tables were filled with gorgeously designed place names and menus, designed by Emily and Stew's friend Emma Whitehead.
The three course meal were followed by the speeches and the bouquet thrown as the guests made their way to the dancefloor. Emily and Stew's first dance wasn't until 11pm so I can guess the party went on until the early hours of the morning. What an evening!
Here's to the newlyweds, congratulations Mr & Mrs Young! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your magical day and wishing you all the love for the future together.
