Stoke Newington Town Hall Wedding Photography, Hackney
**I’m taking bookings for weddings at this venue for 2024-25 now!**
I love Stoke Newington Town Hall for wedding photography. The light in the Council Chamber is beautiful, with large windows on two sides. There is ample space for your photographer to move around to photograph different angles, and the Hackney registrars are happy with this.
A Different Way of Keeping Consecutive Weddings Apart
Stoke Newington seems to operate slightly differently, and some might say more oddly than at other venues:
As the wedding party arrives, the doors are locked and only opened at the correct time to allow entrance. The party then waits in the foyer for a short time. The officiant escorts the wedding party upstairs in small groups by lift. Although different from the norm, this ensures that one wedding party will never meet another.

The Town Hall was built in the 1930s by the Stoke Newington Metropolitan Borough Council. Having survived the war, it became a venue for entertainment but sadly closed and fell into disrepair in 1999. Eleven years later and following an expensive refurbishment, it reopened as a venue for functions, meetings and weddings. If you are planning an event, it would make a fantastic venue location.
Wedding Photography at Stoke Newington Town Hall: Registrar Rules
The registrars at Stoke Newington are very relaxed about photography. They are happy for your photographer to move around but don’t tend to allow photography of the schedule’s actual signing. They set up a ‘dummy’ one instead.
After the ceremony, the guests are taken out of a door on the left of the building for confetti, and they have time to use the front of the town hall for the group and congratulatory shots. As the next wedding will have only just gone in, there is plenty of time for this.
Are you holding a civil partnership ceremony, renewal of vows or baby naming? The venue caters for these, too.
Stoke Newington Town Hall Wedding Ceremony Rooms
Council Chamber: Walnut panelling and beautiful natural window light on two sides make this room a wonderful space for both your wedding and for your photographer to work with. The room seats 83 for the ceremony, including an overspill to the back balcony. The room’s unique architecture has arched mouldings above the windows and other features that accentuate the symmetry. And photographers love symmetry!
Assembly Room: For much larger weddings, this vast space caters to 550 guests for a standing reception or 300 for a seated. It features a Canadian-maple sprung dance floor, perfect for wedding celebrations later into the evening.
