Camden Register Office Weddings

Camden Town Hall is one of London’s top small wedding venues, and I feel privileged to have photographed numerous weddings there.  It was one of the first venues I photographed when I started as a wedding photographer in 2008.

From the contemporary beauty of the Primrose and Heath Rooms to the ornate grandeur of the Marble Staircase, there’s a wedding space perfect for anyone having a small or medium wedding in North London.

The couple found their wedding portraits outside the town hall hilarious.  I always ask newlyweds to be themselves, and Dani and Jason certainly did that.

The Neoclassical Beauty of Your Wedding Venue

Camden Town Hall (including the register/registry office) was known as ‘St Pancras Town Hall’ for 30 years.  Just a stone’s throw from King’s Cross St Pancras Station, the building’s urban beauty is only too apparent.  It recently underwent a 4-year refurbishment but has reopened and looks more stunning than ever.

My only complaint about shooting a wedding or civil ceremony at the town hall is that I’m not generally there long enough to appreciate the beauty and historic wealth of the ornate and elegant building.

**Please note: Some photos on this page were taken before the refurbishment, and the rooms may look slightly different.**

A fun shot shortly after the first kiss.  Kissing photos often turn into fun like this one.  Sadly, this room is no longer in use.

Arrivals and the Waiting Area at Camden Town Hall

These days, there are no hard and fast rules about your arrival.  You can arrive together or separately, mingle with your guests before the ceremony, or hide away for the big reveal as you walk down the aisle.  Whichever way you choose to do things, I’m there to photograph every precious wedding moment and guide you through.

The new waiting area is close to the ceremony rooms and is a beautiful space to meet and greet your wedding guests.  The thing that struck me most was the new floor.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a shiny one!

For wedding ceremonies on The Marble Staircase, the couple exchange rings in front of a floral display.  I captured a sequence of photos of this, editing most in colour, but this black-and-white image worked well too.

I love it when the couple show their feelings.  Some couples cry, but Dani and Jason find hilarity throughout their ceremony.

Eye contact between the couple is vital, so remember to be with each other and enjoy every moment.

The first kiss is an essential photograph for me to take.  Slow down and take your time at this part of the day.

The Schedule Signing at Camden

The registrars at Camden Town Hall are all friendly and helpful.  They allow photography of the signing, which adds to the natural feel of the wedding photographs.  They also give time afterwards for some posed photos with the wedding schedule.

The Camden registrars allow photography of the signing: This is much more natural than posed shots afterwards.

Bride and Groom leave Camden Register Office Wedding Ceremony

Jess and Harry had a small wedding.  Here is the happy couple as they leave after their ceremony.

Camden Town Hall Ceremony Rooms

The Marble Staircase

The wedding space for the fewest guests is also the grandest.  The Marble Staircase has only been available for wedding ceremonies since the renovation, but I’ve already photographed there twice.  It accommodates just your 2 witnesses, and the ceremony is at the top of the grand staircase.  I have photographed more than 2 guests there, so if you want to invite a few more, ask your contact at the venue.

Point to think about:  The staircase is a throughway and near the entrance.  The Camden staff try to minimise noise during the ceremony, but it will be noisier than the other wedding spaces.  I think the area’s beautiful architecture more than makes up for this.

The Heath Suite

Named after Hampstead Heath, the Heath Suite can sit between 30 and 60 of your guests, facing a stunning view of St Pancras International Station.

The Primrose Room (Nearest & Dearest)

Cosy and informal, the Primrose Room is for just 4 of your closest family and friends.

Heath & Primrose Combined

The above 2 rooms can open into one larger room with seats leading back from the registrar’s table.  The combined rooms can now hold 100 wedding guests.

The Regent’s Room

The Regent’s room has a botanical feel and can comfortably hold 20 guests for small wedding parties.

The Council Chamber

The largest wedding space seats 160 80 guests in the lower chamber and 80 in the balcony.

After their wedding, the groom’s mum takes the chance to give him a congratulatory peck on the cheek.  I love the cheeky look on groom Marco’s face.

Confetti Outside Camden Town Hall

Camden Register Office permits the throwing of confetti outside after your ceremony.  I usually set this up after the inside portraits are complete so the newlyweds can exit under a shower of confetti.

Use biodegradable if possible, and avoid small petals, as this does not appear well in your photos.

Confetti is allowed outside, and I recommend doing it.  This can make a vibrant and dynamic addition to your wedding photos.

Posed Wedding Photos

After your wedding ceremony, you’re allowed a few minutes around the building for some posed group and couple portraits.  The obvious spots are the Marble Staircase, balustrade and outside the front, but there are other photogenic areas too.

When taking photography bookings, I send out a questionnaire with a section for any posed shots that are important to you.  This enables me to work efficiently through the posed portraits so you can get on and enjoy the rest of the day.

Saturdays are busier, so we may be given less time.   But with the beauty of St Pancras International and other local spots, this is not a problem.

Arguably, the most important group shot is one of the whole wedding party.  This wedding was perfect to fit everyone along the landing balustrade nicely.

The top of the Marble Staircase is excellent for smaller group shots.  Here, the couple pose with both sets of parents.

At the foot of the staircase, the couple kiss.  This photo shows the scene that greets you as you enter the town hall (without the couple, usually!).

Sukriti had most of her wedding portraits on the staircase.  Hers was a midweek wedding, and there was plenty of time for the shots she needed.

Wedding party outside Camden Town Hall

The group portrait of the wedding party shows more of the beautiful façade.  Despite its proximity to King’s Cross, Judd Street is quiet enough to take uninterrupted shots.

Newlyweds posing with friends and family outside Camden Town Hall

Outside Camden Town Hall works equally well for smaller groups, too.  I shot in portrait orientation to include more of the vertical architecture.

Here is a fun selfie shot with the town hall in the background.  I encourage guest photography at weddings, and photographing them taking photos (including selfies) adds to the day’s story.

Finally, after their wedding, we had a short walk across Euston Road to St Pancras International.  The stunning architecture and fantastic light make lovely portraits before or after your wedding ceremony.
