Old Marylebone Town Hall wedding photography

As a seasoned Old Marylebone Town Hall wedding photographer I can tell you right now, you’ve made a great choice and you’ll have a great day. It’s an iconic building that’s seen tens of thousands of happy couples tie the knot over the decades. And with very good reason, from the stunning setting itself right through to the adorably friendly staff and registrars, even though you’re only there for about an hour in total, it’ll be a delightful hour.

With seven beautifully styled rooms in a range of sizes, Old Marylebone Town Hall wedding ceremonies are equally suited to intimate elopements with just a couple of witnesses and larger weddings with a couple of dozen of your family and friends. And after your ceremony the front of the Hall makes the perfect setting for your confetti and your group shots, with the iconic Old Marylebone Town Hall columns and front entrance in the background.

Wedding photography at Old Marylebone Town Hall

The alcoves behind the columns manage to trap some of London’s most beautiful light, perfect for some entrancing wedding portraits against the famous grey stone. Then there’s plenty of time for the three of us to take a wander around Marylebone’s cobbled backstreets to make a few more creative and candid portraits together, perhaps on the way to your reception venue.

Combine the beautiful wooden and marble interiors and the iconic column-clad exterior, and there’s something so special about Old Marylebone Town Hall wedding photography that makes it probably my favourite register office venue in all of London. So whatever size wedding you’re planning, I’d love to hear from you.

Wedding photography pricing

How long do you need wedding photography for?

Over the years I’ve found that most couples booking me for wedding photography at Old Marylebone Town Hall are best served by either 90 minutes or three hours of photography, usually with one of my bespoke lay-flat albums included. So I offer a special rate for either 90 minutes or 3 hours. Or for total flexibility you can opt for my hourly pricing with a minimum booking of four hours. If you’re not sure what’s right for you just get in touch below with a few details and I’ll be happy to help.

90 minutes | £475

Perfect for arrivals, ceremony, and portraits.

If all you want is photos at Old Marylebone Town Hall, 90 minutes is perfect. I start 30 minutes before the ceremony to capture arrivals, then after the ceremony there’s time for confetti and group shots on the famous Old Marylebone Town Hall steps, and 15-20 minutes to make some wedding portraits behind the columns and in Marylebone’s cobbled back streets.

3 hours | £725

The ceremony plus 60-90 minutes at your reception.

Three hours of Marylebone wedding photography is ideal if you’ve booked a private dining room after the ceremony and you’d like some photos of the drinks reception first. There’s plenty of time for arrivals, ceremony, portraits, and an hour or so of candid photos at a nearby venue afterwards. Or you could swap reception coverage for pre-wedding prep – we can spend the time however you like.

Hourly wedding photography is also available, from £250/hr (minimum two hours)

Bespoke wedding albums

Keep your memories alive for generations

How will you enjoy your Old Marylebone Town Hall wedding photos in, say, ten, twenty, fifty years from now?

I believe the photos we print are the ones we enjoy the most. Even photos stuck to the fridge get more love than the ones stuck on our phones. I approach wedding photography like I’m capturing a story, and stories are told best in books. So I truly believe that even the photos from a small Marylebone register office wedding deserve to be enjoyed in a beautiful custom-made book, a one-of-a-kind physical memento of your day that you’ll cherish forever.

Handmade Heirloom albums

The most exquisite book you’ll ever own, nothing compares to holding your very own handcrafted wedding album in your hands and leafing through the pages. All your favourite photos across at least 15 lay-flat spreads of thick fine art paper, bound by hand in linen or leather, with your choice of end-paper colour, and engraved, debossed or foil-laid cover text. This is the legacy piece your photos deserve, destined to become a family heirloom.

Available in 10×10″ and 12×12″ for your main album, with a 6×6 version available as a duplicate copy for parents. Main album prices start at £500 when you include it in your collection at booking.

Leatherette hardback books

A more affordable machine-made album ideal for an Old Marylebone Town Hall elopement, these start with 10 lay-flat spreads of thick art-white paper, bound in leatherette hardback with a laser-etched or printed cover title. The lower price means you can add loads more photos and not break the bank, and still have something physical to remember your day.

This option comes in 10×10 only for your main album, with an 8×8 version available as a duplicate copy for parents. Main album prices start at £240 when you include it in your collection at booking.

Frequently asked questions

“What’s included in your prices?”

My fees always include a pre-wedding chat on the phone or Zoom, photography, editing, a private gallery to share, a set of digitals for your full personal use, and my travel expenses into London. If you choose to include an album in your collection at booking you’ll receive 20% off the usual album price.

“Do you do portraits and group shots?”

If you’d like to have some it’s no problem. With a 90 minute booking there’s time for a few key group shots and a few portraits on the Town Hall steps. With longer bookings we can do more shots at a different location.

“What about albums and prints?”

I truly believe you’ll get so much more enjoyment from your photos when you can hold them in your hands as real printed images – it cements the memories in your mind far better than a digital photo ever will! You can order long-lasting museum-quality prints from your gallery, and custom-designed books of your favourites directly from me, any time. And you’re welcome to make your own prints using your digitals, of course.

“What if it rains?”

Bring umbrellas! We can make a great group shot behind the columns under cover, but with umbrellas we do them on the Old Marylebone Town Hall steps as well – matching white umbrellas look great! If you’re very lucky there may be an opportunity to do a couple of group shots and a few couple portraits on the staircase inside but this is really dependant on the venue’s schedule that day – please contact Old Marylebone Town Hall to ask what they’ll allow.

“How & when do we get the photos?”

Your private online gallery of finished photos is usually ready 3-4 weeks later, depending how busy we are that month. You’ll be able to enjoy it on a computer, tablet or smartphone. All your guests can download web-friendly digitals for free, and the bride and groom will be able to download one full set of high resolution print-ready digital files too.

“How do we book you?”

First get in touch with a few details and we’ll have a quick chat by phone or Zoom video call. After that we’ll know if I’m right for you, and I’ll put together a package with everything you want. I’ll send you booking forms and my contract, and request a non-refundable first payment of 50% of the package total. The final balance is due four weeks before the wedding.
