Testimonials

"I would like to thank the registrars from our ceremony last Friday. They were so lovely, warm and really held the seriousness of marriage with a lightness of touch.

I am particularly grateful as my husband is on the autism spectrum and can find unknown situations challenging.

I couldn't be happier with how the ceremony experience unfolded."

P & D - October 2022

"Thank you for a lovely ceremony, made all the lovelier for your warmth and humour."

L & M - September 2022

"My partner and I just wanted to send warmest thanks and appreciation for the beautiful and sensitive way that both Marcia and Graeme conducted our Civil Partnership Ceremony at Trinity House. In fact, the whole process, even the admin, has been a joy right from the start with Islington and London City Register Office.

So many people hope for a perfect day when they commit to each other, whether by marriage or civil partnership. We can only say that, afterwards, that is how we felt about our ceremony. In all honesty, we don't think we could have been looked after better. We both have an abiding memory of being held in really good, caring, steady good hands at such a vital moment for both of us. The result was to give us the ceremony we'd planned and hoped for and will never forget."

M & D - May 2022

"Thank you for the organisation of our marriage ceremony.

It has been a wonderful experience from the registration, to the preparation and the ceremony itself. Everyone has been so helpful and friendly on this important day for us.

We could not have wished for a better experience - thank you so much!"

L & I - August 2022

"We had a civil partnership at the Town Hall and it was great! I just wanted to say thank you to all involved at the Town Hall.

The registrars on the day and at our pre-partnership meeting a few months ago were all lovely and calm, professional and supportive and fun in a way I found hugely reassuring and very much appreciated.

Thank you so much for making our big event so very enjoyable and memorable."

Z & C - June 2022

"The two registrars were just wonderful! I was very nervous and they really put me at ease. They were so kind and supportive, and I was so pleased to have them there with me. Throughout the ceremony, they were a calming presence and helped me focus on and enjoy the moment...

The ceremony itself was wonderful. We have both been to a lot of weddings, and have heard many of the same jokes from registrars which are rooted in old-school misogynistic tropes - something we were a little worried about!

We had absolutely nothing to worry about. They both quickly picked up on the fact that we wanted to step back from some of the less progressive traditions associated with weddings, and completely embraced and celebrated it. I was so proud of how respectful and modern our ceremony was."

L & N - October 2021

"We just wanted to pass on our thanks to the two registrars. They were both very friendly, professional and really helped put as at ease. They made sure that the ceremony ran smoothly which we appreciated."

V & J - July 2021

"Everyone at the Town Hall was really welcoming and friendly and the ceremony was very special, warm and relaxed.

We really appreciated how much thought and work must have been put in to make the ceremony so enjoyable."

E & B - April 2021

"Thank you for being so amazing. The whole process from giving notice to the actual ceremony went so smoothly.

We had a great time there.

We are going to remember Islington and recommend it to our friends."

N & A - December 2020

"My partner and I got married here yesterday and it was wonderful!

We want to thank the whole team at Islington Town Hall for such a wonderful day."
