Old Marylebone Town Hall opened in 1920, designed by British architect Sir Edwin Cooper. The building is faced with Portland stone with a tower in the style of Christopher Wren and Corinthian columns. It became a listed building in 1981.
It is the main home of the City of Westminster Register Office and completely refurbished in 2018. It has seven beautifully appointed ceremony rooms which take from 15 to 100 guests.
Below are details and photo galleries from real weddings that have taken place in Old Marylebone Town Hall's seven ceremony rooms.

Old Marylebone Town Hall's striking and wide steps are perfect for confetti photos as you leave the building, with the art deco lions standing guard on either side. Afterwards, we can take couple portraits and small family groups on the top level, with the building's stunning portland stone as a backdrop.
This area has soft, diffused light that makes for beautiful portraits at most times of the day. Marylebone’s gorgeous architecture in the surrounding streets provides a classic backdrop for more wedding portraits.
Regents Park is about a 10-15 minute walk away. It provides a range of portrait opportunities depending on the time of year and is a favourite of couples getting married at Old Marylebone Town Hall.
A permit is needed, which you can arrange through the Royal Parks online beforehand.
Steve and I were thrilled to have Yvonne photograph our wedding in Islington. She is friendly, fast, efficient and unobtrusive and the work she produces is outstanding. Steve and I are not particularly comfortable in front of the camera but Yvonne was able to conjure very natural laughs and romantic moments, so that our photos feel very much like ‘us’. Yvonne photographed our wedding for just 4 hours and produced so many fabulous images that we’ve chosen 220 for our album! It’s going to be a beautiful record of our day and we can’t wait to see it. Thank you so much, Yvonne. You are an absolute superstar. X
Yvonne did a fantastic job for our civil wedding. She made us feel comfortable and at ease throughout the day and was very helpful with organising the timings around the ceremony and photography ensuring that everything ran smoothly. Thank you!
Yvonne very kindly stepped in, literally at the last hour, to take our wedding photos due to illness with our previously booked Photographer. She was there at the allotted time and was extremely efficient, diligent and most importantly put us at our ease from the moment we met her. Timing at Marylebone Old Town Hall is critical for the smooth running of everyones' ceremonies, but we never felt rushed or pushed. Yvonne seems to have a psychic link with the staff of the Town Hall and it all went perfectly. We have just received our proofs and couldn't be more happy. We would absolutely have no hesitation in recommending Yvonne to anyone wishing to capture their very special day. Thank you Yvonne! Carol & Rob
