About the room

For those who want a more traditional setting than the Council Chamber but still want the grandeur of the Town Hall's 1920s design, we are now able to offer the Richmond Room as the Town Hall's latest ceremony room. The long room provides an excellent space for any happy couple, featuring oak panelling, high, elaborate ceilings, and large windows providing ample natural light. The Richmond Room is available on Saturdays (except the second Saturday of each month), or Sundays by special arrangement.

IMPORTANT: from January 2021, the the Richmond Room will change seating arrangement to enable guests to be closer to the couple. All ceremonies booked in 2019 and 2020 will have the existing layout, and all 2021 ceremonies will use the new layout, as we are afraid this cannot be changed for individual ceremonies. Please see the photograph labelled '2021 layout' to ensure you are happy with this layout before booking your date. The room's capacity will remain at 60 guests.

NB: To help respect our neighbours, there are a number of restrictions to the music which may be incorporated into a ceremony in the Richmond Room. No amplified live music is permitted during the ceremony and the volume of recorded music is also capped. Acoustic live music is permitted. If you have any further questions about these restrictions please e-mail registrars@islington.gov.uk

Your registrar will be allocated a month before. Please email us a month before your ceremony at registrars@islington.gov.uk and we will put you in touch with them. You can then arrange to meet that person or talk on the phone at a time of mutual convenience to discuss your ceremony.
