About the room

A popular ceremony room at Islington Town Hall, Room 99 holds up to 28 guests, but is equally suitable for smaller parties. This high-ceilinged, airy room has been refurbished in keeping with the elegance of the building. Decorated with tasteful simplicity in red and gold with permanent floral displays, Room 99 provides a simple yet elegant setting to any ceremony. Large windows provide ample natural light and air-conditioning is available during the summer months.

All prices include room hire, the registrars’ attendance and one marriage or civil partnership certificate. These guest numbers are for the number of guests you can usually invite, and do not include the couple, registrars, photographer, or children under two years old.

At this time, with social distancing measures in place, Room 99 can only accommodate 4 guests, including children, babies and photographers. These numbers are subject to review and change as government and public health advice changes, but we will let you know nearer to the time of your ceremony how many guests can attend and any other safety measures in place. Fewer ceremony times may be available than advertised to ensure ceremony parties do not meet within the Town Hall at this time.

The time allowed for ceremonies in Room 99 is shorter than in the other ceremony rooms. This means that there is no scope for any addition to the standard legal ceremony. You will not be able to choose your ceremony, add readings or personal vows, to have separate pre-ceremony interviews or have a walk in. If these are important to you, we strongly recommend you choose one of our other rooms, where all these options are available.

We are not able to offer co-ordination meetings for ceremonies in Room 99, as these are always very simple ceremonies which are not able to be personalised.

In addition to this, the current government advice is that ceremonies need to be kept as short and simple as possible, meaning that music, readings, choice of ceremony, making an entrance into the room, or any other personalisation is no longer possible. Again, we will review this as government and public health advice changes in the future.

Maximum: 28
