Wedding Dreams come true!

Lianne and the team at Lambeth Town Hall couldn't have been more helpful from the initial enquiry to the big day itself. We were sent loads of information via email detailing all the different room options for our wedding ceremony to take place, including a brilliant virtual tour link which meant we could really get a good idea of what would work best for our vision. We chose the largest room, (The Council Chamber) to accommodate 110 guests and it was perfect for our wedding. We were so well looked after, the team were fantastic, kept me calm and my fiancée very calm when we arrived and they were willing to go above and beyond to accommodate our guests. We had a wonderful drinks and canape reception in the courtyard too which worked really well (it's uncovered but we were so lucky with the weather!) and it was a perfect space to celebrate. I couldn't recommend them highly enough. The registrar team (shout out to Dean whoop!) were also fantastic and made our ceremony really special.

Circular Hall

The Circular hall was excellent and an excellent location - can be a bit echo-y, but worth it.

Simple and beautiful

Having a ceremony at Lambeth town hall was wonderful. It was so easy to organise, we could make choices about everything and it meant we could have the low-key ceremony we wanted. Totally recommend, and means you can go straight into a night out in Brixton!!

Best wedding ever

Lambeth town hall, council chamber and the assembly hall is renovated throughout to the highest standard. Note some venues have a beautiful space but the transition space are not always to the same standard.

Our wedding ceremony, drinks reception and evening party at Lambeth town hall was everything we wanted. Lucy and her team went above and beyond. Any request from was was never answered with a no and Lucy always found a way so that our vision was fulfilled.

They were also very flexible on what we could borrow and they have a great relationship with a range of suppliers so do check with them and they might be more competitive than what you find yourself.

They were also very flexible with our choice of local suppliers in Brixton.

Beautiful venue with lots of character, lovey staff

We chose the Circular Hall and had a drinks reception at the top of the stairs. We were able to store our drinks and snacks at the venue the day before the wedding and the Lambeth Townhall staff set up the space beautifully on the day.

Fantastic venue with lots of options and flexibility

They went above and beyond to help us plan a reception, especially with last minute covid changes, everyone was so helpful and it made the day run smoothly so we could just enjoy! There are so many rooms to choose from and we moved seamlessly throughout the building. Would highly recommend.

Welcoming, authentic and efficient

We loved having our ceremony at Lambeth Town Hall. It was where we registered our sons name and it was special for us to go back there to do the legal but of our wedding. Everyone there was incredibly welcoming and accommodating from the moment we arrived. We loved every moment and thank you for making it such a memorable day.
