Wedding Photography in Camden Town Hall
**I’m taking bookings for weddings at this venue for 2024-25 now**
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 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.**

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!

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.

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.
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.
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.
