Hackney Town Hall Wedding

Hackney Town Hall Weddings

Hackney Town Hall is another Art Deco gem and a great shout for your wedding. Unlike many of London’s town halls, you can have the whole day here, if you choose. If you prefer the thought of a town hall ceremony and heading to another venue for your reception, there are a number of great venues nearby, including Clapton Country Club, Shoreditch Studios, and The Roost.

There are 5 rooms in total at Hackney Town Hall: the North Atria and South Atria, the Assembly Rooms (all or partitioned), the Bridgetown Bar, the Committee Rooms, and the Council Chamber. The venue has recently undergone a massive refurb, so some of the spaces are a lot more modern, whereas the Committee Room and Council Chamber retain the original wood panelling and chandeliers, and are a great setting to hold just the wedding ceremony.
