About the room
At the top of the impressive marble staircase is the largest room at the Town Hall – the Council Chamber, featuring a vaulted ceiling and beautiful stained-glass windows.
Despite the size and capacity of this grand space, the seating layout retains intimacy. The horseshoe seating means none of your guests will be more than five rows from the happy couple, making this room perfect for any size of ceremony.
All ceremonies in the Council Chamber are able to be personalised with readings and personal vows, as well as separate interviews and a separate entrance if you choose. You can find out more details about personalised ceremonies by visiting the ‘Your Questions’ page.
We offer ceremonies Tuesday-Saturday, as well as Sunday ceremonies on some of our most popular weekends. Please click here to visit our Sunday dates page.

85 guests on weekends, 50 guests on weekdays.
This number includes witnesses, guests including children and babies, musicians and videographers. The couple, registrars, and one professional photographer do not count toward this number.
These guest numbers are the maximum allowed following our fire and health and safety risk assessments.
