Woolwich Town Hall Wedding
London is full of beautiful town halls in which to have your wedding and the most popular ones seem to be north of the river. However, possibly one of the grandest and most awe inspiring of them all might just be Woolwich Town Hall, in south east London. This incredible Grade II listed building was designed by architect Alfred Brumwell Thomas and was opened in 1906. Considered a great example of Edwardian Baroque architecture, it’s intricate pale pink and white roof is reminiscent of a Mr Kipling fondant fancy, and who wouldn’t want to get married in a giant fondant fancy?!
There are two rooms to choose from, but the best (in my opinion) is most definitely the Victoria Hall, shown in these photos. The town hall is flooded with light and is a truly impressive town hall to get married in. It’s south east London location means it’s ideal for south London wedding reception venues such as One Friendly Place, The Admiral’s House at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich and Eltham Palace. It is also well located for north of the river gem, Trinity Buoy Wharf, and you can whisk your guests across the Thames by boat and arrive at the private pier ready to start your wedding reception.

- Small amount of pavement at the front of hall to throw confetti, but do be aware there’s not much space and it’s on a busy road. Many of London’s town halls have wider pavements or are quite set back from the road, Islington, Stoke Newington and Hackney all being prime examples.
