About the room

A popular ceremony room at Islington Town Hall, Room 99 is a high-ceilinged, airy room and has been refurbished in keeping with the elegance of the building. Decorated with tasteful simplicity in red and gold with permanent floral displays and beautiful chandeliers, 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. The fee is the same for couples choosing to have a marriage, a civil partnership with a ceremony or a civil partnership with no ceremony.

The government’s Spring Road Map to easing of restrictions is based on a number of steps. Moving from one step to the next is not automatic and will depend on passing the four tests stated in the Spring Road Map.

Key dates and guest capacity:

29th March – up to 6 people*
12th April – up to 15 people*
17th May – up to 30 people*
21st June – no restrictions on numbers

* This number includes the couple, witnesses/guests of any age. The registrars, and one professional photographer do not count toward this number.

Please note that the maximum guest numbers set by the government may not be possible at the Town Hall. As we move through the Road Map, we will be revisiting our Risk Assessments and these will dictate our guest capacity. It may not be possible for us to advise you of guest numbers until nearer to the time of the ceremony.

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 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, or any other personalisation is no longer possible. Again, we will review this as government and public health advice changes in the future.

Maximum (under non-pandemic conditions): 28 guests
