Wedding Photography in Camden Town Hall
**Camden Register Office is open again for weddings from 1st May 2023 following extensive refurbishment.**
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.
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.
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.**
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.
