CHELSEA OLD TOWN HALL WEDDINGS
the iconic venue on london’s famous king’s road
People travel from all over the world for their Chelsea Town Hall wedding, as well as those from the royal borough itself. Young couples to brides and grooms in their 70s choose this most iconic of London register offices for their civil marriage, celebrating with a confetti throw on the Chelsea Old Town Hall steps on King’s Road.
The other thing that makes Chelsea Town Hall weddings so special is the Chelsea registrars. No matter how many ceremonies are taking place that day or how busy a day they are having, they make sure that each couple feels as if they are the only ones getting married.
It’s no wonder The Independent named Chelsea Registry Office as one of the world’s 50 Best Wedding Locations.
I’m proud and happy to have photographed more than 200 weddings at Chelsea Old Town Hall, making me the photographer who has worked there the most – at least as far as I know! Delightfully, it seems as if I am there every week. This means that I’ve found a host of great places for portraits within walking distance and know which ones are going to work best with the weather we have, whether that’s rain or bright sunshine.

wedding stories from chelsea old town hall
It's been 4 months and a lot has changed in the world in that time, but I was thrilled to get back to work for my first socially distanced wedding at Chelsea Old Town Hall. Only a few days after register office wedding ceremonies were allowed to go ahead again, this...
When you specialise in small weddings like I do, you end up photographing a LOT of wedding ceremonies. These are mostly booked following an indepth telephone conversation which gives me the opportunity to learn all about my clients plans. And that works really well....
CAN YOU TAKE PHOTOS DURING THE CEREMONY AT CHELSEA OLD TOWN HALL?
Yes, Chelsea’s registrars love you to have photos of your wedding. They understand you may want to have photos throughout the ceremony including the signing of the schedule and help you and your photographer to do this.
WHERE DO WE MEET YOU ON OUR WEDDING DAY?
We’ll chat a few days ahead of your wedding to make sure that I know all of the timings and finalised details of your plans. During that time, we’ll agree where to meet. Usually, you will arrive at the side entrance in Chelsea Manor Street next to a big blue sign and go up the stairs to the waiting room which is in front of you and to the left. After your wedding, you’ll exit onto King’s Road and the main staircase for confetti.
CAN YOU BE OUR WITNESS?
Yes, and I love being a witness. You do need two witnesses, so you will need to organise at least one other. If you do not have a second witness, I will be able to arrange one for you.
WHAT DO WE DO IF IT RAINS ON OUR WEDDING DAY?
I totally have you covered with a complete guide – it’s everything you need to know to deal with London’s wetter weather. Find out more…
HOW SOON DO WE GET TO SEE OUR PHOTOGRAPHS?
Your photographs will be ready for you no later than one calendar month after your wedding.
