A historic wedding venue in the heart of East London, Wilton's Music Hall is an ideal location for elegant events. Dating back to the mid-19th century, this unique Grade II listed building is one of London's few remaining music halls. Guests will be transfixed by the grand auditorium, ornate Victorian staircase, and vintage fixtures as you exchange vows under the glow of spotlights. Available for exclusive hire, this public arts and heritage theatre is ready to be transformed into a stage fit for your showstopping wedding event.

We are proud to be an LGBTQ+ friendly venue.

Facilities and Capacity

Situated just a stone's throw from London's bustling centre, Wilton's Music Hall is an excellent option for city ceremonies and destination weddings. Voted the best historic wedding venue at the UK Wedding Awards, this ornate building allows couples to host a day-long soiree in absolute privacy. You can set the stage for the day's festivities in the main auditorium, which retains much of its original character. Built in 1858, this glorious hall can host between 50 to 250 guests for your wedding breakfast and evening reception. The stage itself is the venue's designated ceremony space, allowing couples to start the next act of their love story beneath low lighting and classic stylings. Lovers of the 1920's style will adore the Cocktail Bar, born of the hall's famous Great Gatsby production. With its bare brick walls and antique fireplace, the room can fit up to 60 guests for an intimate cocktail hour or demure reception. The hall is filled with intriguing smaller rooms, which can be transformed into get-ready suites or bespoke entertainment spaces. The theatre also offers plenty of backdrops and locations for capturing those timeless snaps, with phantom staircases, sky-lit rooms, and gorgeous balconies.

Services Offered

Wilton's Music Hall delights in helping couples make the most out of its distinctive venue. With each hire, a duty manager, a technician, and SIA security are all included to support you throughout the day. A selection of staff is also available at an added cost to keep your event running smoothly. When it comes to setting up the venue to your desired wedding aesthetic, the team can recommend a great range of suppliers, covering catering, flower décor, and event rentals. Other services include:

  • No corkage fee
  • Viewing opportunities for photographers and florists

The most magical wedding at Wilton’s

Our wedding at Wilton’s was just magical! When we were looking for a venue and saw Wilton’s we knew it was a special place - the history, the charm and the lovely warm vibe immediately sold us. The team at Wilton’s were just lovely - in the lead up and also on the day - everything ran perfectly. Wilton’s is truly a unique and magical setting for a wedding - it totally surpassed our expectations.
We loved the fact we could get married at Wilton’s and then stay to have our reception - having access to the whole theatre was wonderful and made the day a really immersive experience. Although there were more logistics to organising the day there it was totally worth it and we cannot think of a better place to have got married -
It will always be a special place to us. Claire and Gavin ❤️

Wonderful wedding in amazing venue with unique character

We just had our wedding in Wilton’s and it’s been the most amazing day! The venue and its atmosphere is absolutely stunning and was exactly what we were looking for.

We had the entire building to ourselves which was great to spread out to get ready, serve drinks and mingle as well as entertain kids in a separate area while the main auditorium was swiftly turned around between ceremony, dinner service and party. While we were not too involved in the logistics as we were lucky to have a wedding planner, everything went smoothly and without a hitch. All our guests were impressed with the venue and we were almost happy about the pouring rain on the day which only added to the atmosphere! Highly recommend this historic building and the lovely team to anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion!

Perfect venue for a perfect day!

Getting married at Wilton’s Music Hall was a truly magical experience. The theatre is absolutely incredible and the staff could not have been more helpful. Half the guests came from abroad for the wedding and they were blown away by the beauty, history and atmosphere of the venue. Thanks to the change in mood lighting and various set up of the auditorium, people couldn’t believe the ceremony, dinner and party actually happened in the same room. They were able to explore the theatre as we had the venue just to ourselves for the day and there was plenty of room to accommodate everyone, including quite a few children. I love that every time we will go back to see a show there we will be able to revisit this amazing day and all those lovely memories.
