About the room

At the top of the Town Hall’s impressive marble staircase, the Council Chamber features a vaulted ceiling and beautiful stained-glass windows.

Despite the size and capacity of this grand space, the seating layout retains intimacy. The horseshoe seating means none of your guests will be more than five rows from the happy couple. Thus, even much smaller parties do not feel overwhelmed during a ceremony.

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.

50 guests*

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