Marylebone Town Hall elopement photographer – Nadia & Ben’s ceremony & vibrant portraits

This month I kicked off my 2024 weddings with an intimate Marylebone Town Hall elopement. Even though I moved up to Newcastle Upon Tyne, I still love shooting weddings and elopements up and down the UK. Plus, Marylebone is like a familiar old friend – one of my absolute favourite London town hall wedding venues. Since COVID and micro-weddings took off, it’s practically a second home to me!

Marylebone Town Hall Elopements

The town hall, having donned a fresh coat of paint over the Christmas season, looked totally gorgeous! It has a range of rooms for all sizes of celebration. For intimate elopements, the Soho Room steals the show, accommodating up to 13 guests. It has a large fireplace, dramatic chandelier and cosy plush chairs – super elegant and cosy. All their rooms are far from what you might expect from a register office.

Nadia and Ben chose this charming space for their elopement, surrounded by only three close friends as witnesses. They’d written their own vows to each other, which were super emotional and brought tears on both sides!

They also opted for a ring warming ceremony, a nod to Irish tradition. As they recited their vows, the rings circulated among the guests, each blessing the bands with their good luck wishes.

After the ceremony, we took a few quiet moments for Nadia and Ben to gather themselves now they were Mr & Mrs. During this time, I always get guests to line up on those iconic steps outside the building, gearing up for a confetti explosion.

My top tip for Marylebone Town Hall weddings

Quick note for future Marylebone town hall elopement lovebirds – the clock ticks fast here. With back-to-back weddings, you’ve normally got a mere 5-minute window on the steps before being gently nudged aside. You need to be efficient to get group shots done here, and know exactly what you want ahead of time. I always get my couples to give me a list before the day, and to have a Plan B in case the steps are too hectic. I’d normally suggest your reception venue, or there’s a charming cobbled street around the corner.

We managed to squeeze in some quick photos on the steps, and then were moved to the side where we could do some portraits. I absolutely adore these confetti photos of Nadia and Ben looking totally relaxed and joyful. I love this type of confetti as it shows up so well on camera and looks super vibrant!

Oh, and let’s talk about Nadia’s bouquet. It was chosen by Ben on the wedding morning, and really brought spring to a cloudy February day. It also perfectly matched Nadia’s coat, and the town hall urns outside the front doors. I love it when things come together!

Not just your average wedding supplier

It felt like I’d known Nadia and Ben for years and absolutely loved how well we got on. They messaged me later in the day saying they’d felt super relaxed and like we were friends. This is exactly what I want from my couples! It was the best way to start my 2024 weddings and I headed back to Kings Cross for my train to Newcastle with a huge buzz. If you’re having a Marylebone Town Hall elopement, or wedding and would love me to shoot your day, pop me a message!
