Wedding Photography at
Chelsea Old Town Hall

London Wedding Photography Guide for Kensington & Chelsea


I’ve been photographing weddings and civil partnerships (before gay weddings) at Chelsea Town Hall since 2006, so I know a thing or two about planning a great ceremony for you and your guests in Chelsea. 

Here’s a list of my top five things to love and plan for with your wedding or gay wedding photography at
Chelsea Old Town Hall

  1. What can I say? It’s Chelsea – beautiful, stylish, swish Chelsea on London’s lively Kings Road.  Chelsea Register Office has great walk-up appeal.  The best part of Kensington and Chelsea Register Office photos is the bride and groom arriving on London's famous Kings Road.

  2. Chelsea Town Hall weddings mean you're allowed confetti!  Lots of places have a confetti ban these days, so if after your wedding ceremony, you want to be cheered under a rain of colourful confetti, and the photo as well, Chelsea Town Hall is your place.

  3. Fitting of a wedding venue in the royal borough, Chelsea’s Registery is a fabulous Victorian building inside and out – marble floors, mahogany doors and that iconic portico and fanlight.  If you want a super elegant and very London setting for your wedding and photographs, Chelsea Registry Office ticks the box. My favourite of the ceremony room is the Brydon Room with space for 38 and a lovely big window.  For more intimate weddings and civil ceremonies, I recommend either the Rossetti Room for up to 12 wedding guests or the  Harrington Room for up to eight guests.

  4. Ok- so only a wedding photographer is going to tell you this, but Chelsea Old Town Hall has beautiful light.  In the AM on a sunny day (fingers crossed for you) outside the Town Hall, the sun is behind the building, so everything simply glows with warm, gorgeous light.  There’s nothing as beautiful as backlit wedding photos.  In the afternoon on a clear day, there’s long, golden light illuminating everything.

  5. There are lots of nearby locations for relaxed, fun photographs after the wedding ceremony at Kensington Town Hall.  You can take a five-minute walk along Kings Road to the Royal Hospital Chelsea, the Embankment, or the Chelsea Physic Garden with your friendly female wedding photographer (hopefully me), and we will capture the two of you in colourful, pretty Chelsea.  It’s London at its best.
