About the room
For those who want a more traditional setting than the Council Chamber but still want the grandeur of the Town Hall's 1920's design, we offer the Richmond Room as the Town Hall's latest ceremony room.
The long room provides an excellent space for any happy couple, featuring oak panelling, high, elaborate ceilings, and large windows providing ample natural light.
The Richmond Room is available on Saturdays (except the second Saturday of each month).
All prices include room hire, the registrars’ attendance and one marriage or civil partnership certificate. These guest numbers are for the usual number of guests you can invite, and do not include the couple, registrars, photographer, or children under two years old.
At this time, the Richmond Room cannot be used as it cannot be accessed in a socially distanced way. This is subject to review and change as government and public health advice changes, but we will not book any new ceremonies in this room until it can be used again. Existing booked ceremonies will be asked to move into a different room if needed, but will let you know nearer to the time of your ceremony if this is necessary, how many guests can attend, and any other safety measures in place.
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, other personalisation, or meeting with the registrar before the ceremony is no longer possible. Again, we will review this as government and public health advice changes in the future.
