    Best wedding Backdrop of any venue

    Not only is this the best wedding Backdrop of any venue I've played in my band SoulMoFunk, but THE STAFF are absolutely GREAT.

    From opening the rear loading doors to the stage at lunchtime to leaving just after 1:30am, every member of staff I spoke with was just so HELPFUL & SO OBLIGING.

    If Bands Booked Venues for a Wedding, we would RECOMMEND THE GUILDHALL!...

    Stunningly Beautiful. A privilege to play at this venue.

    Thank you and Soulful Best Wishes from all at SoulFunk Band & The Honeyz

    My parents were married there, and the Chambers room had the perfect Gothic look for our wedding theme.

    how beautiful the building was

    It was because how beautiful the building was and the first person who showed us round was very nice and friendly. We also thought it would be good that every time we go to Northampton after we can go past it we can say that’s where we got married.”

    amazing building!

    We needed a venue that could accommodate up to 250 guests of all ages and that was central and attractive. The Guildhall ticked all these boxes. The amazing building!

    The building itself was also fabulous and made gre

    The size of the venue meant we could have a civil ceremony with all of our guests (we didn't have evening guests). We didn't want a church wedding and the choice of nonreligious venues that are big enough for 120 people are few and far between. The building itself was also fabulous and made great photos!

    The venue was beautiful

    Our allocated coordinator Pete was very helpful and knowledgeable. He put us at ease and offered so many options whilst providing advice to help us in our decisions. The venue was beautiful and we and our guests were made to feel special. Everyone commented on how beautiful the ceremony and venue was, and we agree!

    We had an amazing day

    We had an amazing day, our initial plan was to have a small wedding, because the building is so grand it made us feel we had a big wedding day after all. So many of our guests were surprised by the venue and the fact they had never been in there before. The guildhall has a wealth of history and beauty! The Great hall, what isn't there to love, it’s grand and stunning.
