The Brydon Room
The Brydon Room is a beautiful and stylish ceremony room offering a unique but classic setting for your special day. This spacious room is located on the upper ground floor of Chelsea Old Town Hall and is able to seat parties of up to 40 people (the couple and up to 38 guests). The room is decorated with a fresh floral arrangement.

Please note that we are currently only taking bookings for the Brydon Room up to and including 19 August 2018 following which Chelsea Old Town Hall will close for a period of around six months for a refurbishment. If you are considering a ceremony on or after 20 August 2018, we recommend the Committee Room or the Mayor’s Parlour both at Kensington Town Hall which is where the Kensington and Chelsea Registration Service will be based during the refurbishment of Chelsea Old Town Hall.
One of the advantages in choosing The Brydon Room is that you can personalise your ceremony with readings and music.
A ceremony in the Brydon room enables you and your partner to be interviewed separately by the Registrar (a legal requirement) prior to the ceremony. This means that the first time you see each other will be when you stand side by side to take your vows thus maintaining an important tradition.
The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is pleased to be able to offer three evening ceremony times on Fridays and Saturdays at 5pm, 6pm and 7pm. Please be aware that there is an additional £100 Evening Fee payable for any ceremony booked from 5 pm onwards.

The non-refundable booking fee is payable when you book the date of your ceremony. The fee for the attendance of the Registrars at your ceremony must be paid no later than four weeks before the ceremony. The attendance fee is the fee for your ceremony in that room or venue, so includes the service itself, and the two registrars required by law to be in attendance to conduct and register your ceremony. It does not include marriage certificates which are £4 each (prior to your ceremony) or £10 each (after your ceremony). Certificates can be paid for at £4 when you pay your ceremony attendance fee.
For this room, please state The Chelsea Old Town Hall as your venue when you attend to give notice.
