The Old Court House at Kingston Register Office

You will find us on the lower ground floor of the historic Guildhall, which is located in the heart of Kingston and a stone's throw away from the River Thames. The Old Court House is steeped in history and boasts many ornate original features and impressive high ceilings. We have three ceremony rooms to choose from. From small and intimate to large and grand, we have the right space to hold your beautiful ceremony.

All of our Ceremony Rooms and public spaces are currently undergoing transformation. With updated seating and the addition of plants and foliage, we’ll be bringing some exciting modern touches to this historic building. We believe these changes will make an everlasting impact on your big day. This revamp will be showcased on our social media sites being launched in early spring 2023, watch this space! 

Ceremony Room One 

The largest of our rooms holds 70 guests. Cream chairs with sunburst gold organza bows, blue carpet and original wood panelling. Sympathetically restored in 2015, The Old Court still holds much of its original grandeur.   

Ceremony Room Two 

Seating for 40 guests, Room Two is light and bright with white organza bows and a relaxed atmosphere for slightly smaller ceremonies. In 2023 we’ll be bringing the outside in with beautiful plants and foliage to create an indoor garden feel to the room. 

Ceremony Room Three 

If you’re looking for a small intimate ceremony with those closest to you, our new room is now available to book midweek from February 2023 onwards. With seating for 12 guests, we’re pleased to offer a beautiful and affordable option for your celebration.  

Every wedding or civil partnership is unique, and although we can’t allow the rooms to be individually decorated for each couple, personalising your ceremony with music, readings and personal promises couldn’t be easier. If you have any questions or would like to come in, meet the team and view our rooms, please don’t hesitate to email or call us on:
