Perhaps it was the pandemic, perhaps this would have happened organically, but I’ve noticed in the last couple of years that the number of London micro weddings I’ve photographed has dramatically increased. At first I was conflicted. I love a big wedding, with friends travelling from near and far to celebrate the couple (and the dancing!). However, having now shot a LOT of small, intimate micro weddings, I have grown to really love them, and not just because I don’t have to battle with the M25 as often to get to a venue. 😉
London is full of gorgeous town halls and interesting venues, so it’s never the same wedding twice. In the north of London, you have The Old Marylebone Town Hall. It’s probably the venue I’m at most frequently, but that might be because it has seven ceremony rooms, which vary from a minimum of 10 people in the Paddington Room, to a maximum of 102 in the largest space, the Westminster Room. I love the dramatic architecture of the building, with its tall columns and sweeping stairs outside. Perfect for London micro weddings. Plus, you are close to gorgeous Marylebone, with its many restaurant options for small celebrations.
Also in North London is the Islington Town Hall. I love its circular room with the pretty stained glass windows. It feels particularly ‘London’ to me. It also has lovely steps!
Another wonderful venue in London is the historic Burgh House in Hampstead. They can accommodate up to 70 guests, and is one of my favourite micro wedding venues in London. It’s walking distance to Hampstead Heath and The Pergola, which opens up all sorts of options for portraits.
And lastly, but by no means least, is Hackney Town Hall in East London. The town hall has the most dramatic atriums to each side, which are totally unique in London. Really striking and modern.
So if you’re thinking of holding your wedding in London, the choices are endless. Whether you want to invite 10 guests, or 70, you won’t go wrong with any of the above venues. I’m happy to chat through all of these in more detail (for instance, Old Marylebone Town Hall’s rooms vary quite a lot in size and light!)
