This venue is beautiful

We chose The Dead Dolls house for our wedding this October, its location is perfect for a wedding at the town hall. This venue is beautiful and hardly needs any decoration, we had an amazing time here and everyone commented on how great the quality of food was.Special thanks to Emily who was our in house co-ordinator who helped us plan every little detail in the build up and helped everything run smoothly on the day!

The room looked amazing, and the food was fabulous

We had our wedding reception here in June 17 - Emily looked after us brilliantly both before, during and after the event. The room looked amazing, and the food was fabulous. Emily also sorted us out with a DJ who played us great tunes into the early hours! It's great that the place is open until 4am. And so convenient being located just opposite Islington Registry Office. We did pretty much pack people in for dinner - think we went for the maximum number which is 70, so it was a squeeze but we didn't really mind. I think we only noticed it as it was right in the middle of a UK heatwave and we were all sweltering! But all in all, a very memorable evening, and would definitely recommend this place for your wedding reception if you want something low key, informal, convenient and fun (as well as enjoying great food and wine!)

Exceptional support

By Martyna & Ural, on 01 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 20 May 2017

We are very grateful for such an exceptional support during our preparation for civil ceremony reception. We had our reception booked in May 2017. We were looking for a place where we can invite our guests after the ceremony for a nice meal and music in a convenient location. The Dead Dolls House was just across the road from the Town Hall. All staff and management were very helpful from the day one. We have managed to discuss and confirm all details over the phone, then we were invited to come and see the venue. We felt very welcome on the arrival. The staff and management made sure that all our questions were answered. We were accommodated in the Ballroom on the top floor, despite the fact that our request was a last minute booking. We must admit, we received a very professional service. We did not have to worry about the layout of the room, decorations or lighting as the staff ensured that everything was ready for us on the day just the way we discussed beforehand. Food was delicious. We had a chance to choose our menu. Guests had a chance to use the bar that was available throughout the reception. The atmosphere was amazing. We had everything in one place. After dinner, we were able to celebrate the rest of the evening on the dance floor. If we had to organise the reception again, we would definitely choose the Dead Dolls House. Thank you very much to all staff and management for your support and time. We had a great time!
