Camden Register Office Weddings

Camden Town Hall is one of London’s top small wedding venues, with good reason.

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

Most civil weddings at such venues take no more than twenty minutes. Couples are generally shocked by how quickly their ceremony flies by.  So my advice is to pad things out with readings – most registrars allow time for this, depending on their packages and pricing.

I took this as the bride and her father arrived at the venue. The beautiful but simple façade of Camden Town Hall is perfect for portraits, and there’s no mistaking where I took it!

The Neoclassical Beauty of the 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 Station, the building’s urban beauty is only too apparent.  The first time I photographed the venue was on a scorching hot July day, arriving by red Routemaster bus with many guests already waiting outside to greet the couple.  So, I wasted no time photographing the wedding party against the wonderful neoclassical backdrop.

A fun shot shortly after the first kiss. Kissing photos often turn into fun like this one.

Camden Town Hall Ceremony Rooms

Committee Rooms 1 & 2 can open into one larger room with seats leading back from the registrar’s table.  Wooden panelling makes the room fairly dark.  However, good window lighting illuminates the register signing table in the front corner.  I use bounce-flash to good effect, which the registrars are happy with.

**I will have more information about available wedding ceremony spaces when the venue opens in May.**

Martina and Ambrogio’s wedding was as relaxed as they were: This style of photo taken on the town hall landing perfectly matched their personalities.

Helpful and Relaxed Registrars to Calm the Nerves

The staff at Camden Town Hall are all friendly and helpful.  They allow photography of the register signing, which adds to the natural feel of the wedding photographs.  After the ceremony, ample time gives the photographer a chance to photograph the whole wedding group on the grand marble staircase.  Here there is an excellent view from the balustrade.

I have photographed numerous weddings at Camden Town Hall, including same-sex marriages.

Bride Signing the Register at Camden Town Hall Wedding

The Camden registrars allow photography of the signing: This is much more pleasing than merely setting up a ‘dummy’ register for posed shots.

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

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 some uninterrupted shots.

Finally, 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.
