Westminster Register Office recently asked me to take part in a Photographer Spotlight Old Marylebone Town Hall. To see their article please click on their A Day to Remember blog.

When Old Marylebone Town Hall reopened in January 2018 I was lucky to have the opportunity to photograph the seven new ceremony rooms, all named after areas within Westminster.

Since January 2018 I have taken 50 bookings and in case you are interested in which room is proving most popular, here is the split so far:

Mayfair Room – 5
Pimlico Room – 6
Paddington Room – 4
Westminster Room – 6
Marylebone Room – 11
Soho Room – 16
Knightsbridge Room – 2

It really depends on two things, plus your total number of guests (i.e. the room capacities):

1. Wooden panelling or painted plaster walls in muted sage, cream, or putty:

Wood – Paddington, Westminster, Marylebone
Painted – Mayfair, Pimlico, Soho, Knightsbridge

2. Formal OR relaxed seating layout:

Formal – Mayfair, Pimlico, Westminster, Marylebone, Knightsbridge
Relaxed – Paddington, Soho

Room Capacities

Mayfair Room – up to 30
Pimlico Room – up to 20
Paddington Room – up to 15
Westminster Room –up to 98
Marylebone Room – up to 15
Soho Room – up to 20
Knightsbridge Room – up to 30

The three wood panelled rooms – Paddington, Westminster and Marylebone – all adjoin each other meaning they are termed as ‘premium hire’. They cost a little more to ensure that you are not disturbed by an adjoining wedding.

For more room photos please have a look at my Old Marylebone Town Hall page. And for actual ceremonies please visit my latest blog posts.

Wedding Photographer Spotlight Old Marylebone Town Hall - Emma Duggan Photography (Westminster Register Office) - A set of nine wedding photographs depicting weddings photographed at Old Marylebone Town Hall by Emma Duggan Photography in Spring 2018 including two dogs as ring bearers, a couple celebrating under the fluted columns, a bride through the Spring flowers outside the entrance, a Mayfair Room ceremony, a family group, confetti after a Pimlico ceremony, and a smiling groom

And finally, in the Photographer Spotlight questions I was asked what I thought distinguished my work from other photographers and I forgot one key thing. Pretty feet! I take great pride in my groups, ensuring that you, your family and your friends don’t look like flumps. It all starts with feet. If they are messy, then everything else will be too.
