What you need to know...

See Getting married or entering into a civil partnership for information on what documents to bring to your appointment.

We have a number of beautiful venues for weddings:

  • Ceremonies Suite
  • The Assembly Hall
  • The Anti-Chamber
  • The Mayor's Heritage Suite
  • The Circle
  • Council Chamber

Prices available on request.

Please note that confetti is not allowed at weddings taking place in Lambeth Town Hall venues, including our Ceremonies Suite and the adjoining Courtyard. You are invited to bring bubbles, alternatively we will have bubbles that you can purchase at reception.


Now you have made the decision to marry or enter into a civil partnership, it’s time to get your all-important certificates.

Save time and money!

There will be instances where you and your partner will be asked to provide a marriage or civil partnership certificate, so why not save time and money and get them at the time of registration where you can purchase them for £4 each. After this time they will increase to £10. That’s a 60% discount!

We recommend a minimum of 5 certificates that you will need for a number of different reasons which include:

  • Opening a joint bank account
  • Mortgages / property holdings
  • Life insurance / assurance polices
  • Changing your name
  • Renewing of vows
  • If you decide to adopt a child
  • Applying for probate
  • Making a will
  • Applying for visas if you decide to move abroad
  • Divorce proceedings
  • Family tree records
