About the room
Our newest ceremony room, The Canonbury Suite, has been designed to reflect the heritage of the Town Hall, but with a romantic modern twist.
This beautiful room features wood panelled walls, velvet furniture and curated décor in gold, teal, and powder pink. The focal point of the room is the beautiful original Crittal stained glass window, which has been carefully restored back to its former 1920's glory.
The intimate, bijou setting provides a new stylish backdrop for 'cereminis' at Islington Town Hall. The Canonbury Suite is the perfect space for a city elopement, a relaxed affair before a larger celebration, or celebrating in elegant style with your very nearest and dearest. The excellent value that this room offers in a wonderful building and area has made the Canonbury Suite extremely popular.
2 adult witnesses
The Canonbury Suite is an intimate room which can only hold:
• You and your partner
• Two adult witnesses
• The registrars
Children and babies cannot be accommodated in this room, as you can only bring two adult witnesses to your ceremony. If you want to bring a photographer, they will need to be one of your two witnesses.
These guest numbers are the maximum allowed following our fire and health and safety risk assessments.
You can choose to bring one pet to your ceremony in this room.
Civil partnership conversion ceremonies
Renewal of Vows (enhanced ceremony bookings only)
Commitment ceremonies (enhanced ceremony bookings only)
Naming Ceremonies (enhanced ceremony bookings only)
Ceremonies in the Canonbury Suite are shorter, simple ceremony options, offered for couples who would prefer this kind of ceremony. This means that on weekdays we are unable to offer readings, music, personal vows, separate pre-ceremony interviews or have a walk in. On Saturdays, limited personalisation is available, and you will be able to add a reading or personal vows and/or separate walk ins and music.
It may be possible for you to pay an additional fee to extend your ceremony to include full personalisation including separate interviews, depending on the ceremonies booked after yours. The fee for an enhanced ceremony is the cost of two standard Canonbury Suite ceremony slots on the date you have chosen, as outlined below. Enhanced ceremonies can only be booked by email request, not online.
Prices and days/times offered
Prices include use of the room, the registrars’ attendance and one copy of the certificate. The price is the same for all simple ceremonies, including couples choosing to have a civil partnership with no ceremony.
