Victoria and William’s Chelsea Old Town Hall Summer wedding was blessed with bright sunshine. Victoria wore a stylish white crochet mini dress with pink suede heels, and a wonderful large white cream rose in her hair. She carried a cream and deep pink rose floral bouquet. And William wore a navy check 3-piece suit with deep magenta tie and handkerchief matched with a vintage tie pin. They had nine guests including both sets of parents and five close friends. Chelsea Old Town Hall has three ceremony rooms and the medium one – the Rossetti Room – holds up to twelve guests so was a lovely intimate space for Victoria and William’s civil marriage ceremony.
After their vows and exchange of rings Lauren did a reading and then Victoria and William signed the Register. Out on the famous Chelsea Old Town Hall steps the guests did a terrific job with the confetti and Victoria and William smiled broadly. After a couple of group photographs on the steps all of the guests made their way to Babylon Restaurant (Kensington Roof Gardens) on Kensington High Street.
Victoria had specifically asked for Chelsea’s white stucco townhouses and black railings as a backdrop to their couple wedding photographs. We headed to a quiet spot for fifteen minutes of photos and then they left to join the others for lunch. The following week Victoria and William had a much larger wedding ceremony back in Dorset.
Chelsea Old Town Hall (aka Chelsea Register Office) is one of the most popular places to marry in London. It is easy to get to and surrounded by wonderful hotels and restaurants. Many of my clients come into London for a few days and combine this with getting married. For further information on getting married at Chelsea Registry Office please visit my Chelsea page.
