Bride Arriving at Wandsworth Town Hall Wedding

Bride Sharon arrives in style at Wandsworth Town Hall for her short register office wedding ceremony.


Wandsworth Town Hall is a grand looking building located in central Wandsworth, SW18.  It houses the Wandsworth Register Office (or Registry Office).  Built in the 1930’s and opened in 1937 by Queen Mary, it remains largely unchanged with any minor alterations in keeping with the origin design and character of the building.  It now holds a grade II listed building status.  Along the High Street elevation of the exterior are stone reliefs portraying key events and industries in the history of the five parishes that once made up the Borough of Wandsworth.

I have photographed at Wandsworth Town Hall several times. On arrival the seemingly large scale of the building immediately strikes me.  This is enormously enhanced by the huge entrance court where many a bride and groom have arrived in style over the years.  A marble hall and choice of five ornate rooms means this is a fantastic register office in which to get married.

Capacity at Wandsworth Town Hall varies from 10 in the Mayor’s Parlour to 100 in the Grand Chamber.

Wedding Ceremony Rooms

The registrar’s are most welcoming, encouraging photography throughout the civil marriage ceremony and signing of the register.  This always makes photographing a wedding much easier.

The Elizabeth Room:  Only seats up to 10 guests.  For the most minimalist of ceremonies with no readings or music.

Victoria Room:  Accommodates up to 25 people –  red-themed with a gorgeous conference table.  Price includes choice of music and reading.

Alexandra Room:  Pictured above.  Seats 43 guests facing towards an unusual art-deco mirrored table, totally in-keeping with the décor and age of the building.  The couple is kept separate before the ceremony if required and there is an aisle to walk down.

The Grand Chamber:  The largest ceremony room which seats 98 wedding guests.  Up to 3 readings are included as well as acoustic live music, although this must be booked separately.

The Mayor’s Parlour:  With seating for only 10 guests.  Otherwise similar additions as for The Grand Chamber are

The register office requires a £50 deposit for all weddings with full payment 2 months before the marriage date.

The venue conducts room viewings every Saturday at 9am.  Go to the Marble Hall Reception.  Booking is not necessary.

The Courtyard at Wandsworth Register Office is almost Royal in size and appearance. Great for youngsters to run around in after the ceremony.

Photography at Wandsworth Registry Office

The registrars actively encourage photography throughout the ceremony so long as it isn’t distracting.  Your professional should be discrete and observe the occasion whilst taking a series of photographs to document your marriage.  It is also fine for guests to take photos.  Sometimes the couple may prefer them not to, in which case the registrar will make an announcement prior to the ceremony beginning.  In any case, they should not hinder either the registrar or your photographer from performing their duties.

Group Wedding Photo Outside the Register Office at Wandsworth

A group portrait of the family outside the main doors to the courtyard. The architecture and floral display ensures it is a fantastic backdrop to your posed wedding photos.

After Your Wedding Ceremony

After the Wandsworth Town Hall wedding photography ceremony, there is time allowed for group shots on the ornate central staircase with a good view from the elevated balustrade above. Time allowed on the stairs inside largely depends on how busy the registry office is at that time and on that day.

I then like to photograph the couple walking along the long corridor and exiting out into the courtyard. Wandsworth allows confetti, so it’s nice to take a sequence of confetti shots outside. There’s also scope for posed photos in the magnificent courtyard with fountain (below).
