Testimonials

"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."

"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 so much for such an incredible day on Thursday last week.

Being the first wedding after lock down meant we were a little nervous about what to except but genuinely couldn’t have asked for more - you made us feel so comfortable and you put the personal touch into a COVID compliant service!

Thank you again!"

"A big thank you to you and the Town Hall.

We had a great day.

The whole experience with Islington has been brilliant.

Please pass on our thanks to the registrars and also the very helpful man at the front door of the Town Hall. We thought they did a brilliant job at making the strange environment very normal and relaxed. It was a really special occasion."

S & M - October 2020

"We would just like to say a huge thank you to our registrars.

They really helped us throughout the day and conducted a wonderful ceremony. E and I were both very nervous, they were very professional and helpful to calm both of us down.

It was the happiest day of our lives, one we will never forget.

Thanks again for all of your help organising this."
