Take a look below to discover our favourite wedding halls available for hire in trendy East London. Different from each other they may be, but all have plenty on offer to make them well worth considering for your big day.
If you’ve got a pretty extensive guest list to accommodate, you needn’t worry about finding space for them all at St John at Hackney. This converted church has a maximum capacity of 1400 (1000 standing in the ground floor main hall and 400 seated on the balcony). Grade II listed and dating back to the 18th century, it is a lovely little slice of London’s history, with characterful touches and original features that bring that extra special touch to the space. Still very much relevant on the current events scene however, it has played host to top names within the music industry, including Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sande and Coldplay.
Hackney Town Hall offers old-school glamour and sumptuous grandeur courtesy of the Art-Deco styling and sensitively retained original features, including the sprung dancefloor and the impressive 1930s chandeliers. The main Assembly Hall can accommodate up to 550 guests, and can either be utilised as one large open space, or split into three smaller areas if you want to bring a more intimate touch to proceedings. AV support and events management are included within the cost of hire, making the planning and running of the day as stress free for you as possible.
If the notion of getting help throughout the process is one that appeals to you, Hackney Showroom is another venue to keep in mind. Their events management service includes assistance with everything from catering and equipment hire to the style and design of the space itself. This warehouse conversion boasts a flexible studio space that is flexible enough to meet a whole plethora of different needs. Other handy extra features include an airy neon bar and close proximity to good transport links such as Rectory Road and Dalston Kingsland stations.
The Troxy first opened its doors to the public in the 1930s as a grand cinema. The Art-Deco style from that era lives on to this day, as do many of the venue’s original features, surviving in thanks to the building’s Grade II listing. Historic though it may be, the Grand Hall has been cleverly updated to function as a valid and flexible contemporary event space, with state of the art PA and lighting systems and air conditioning maximising convenience and comfort respectively. With a generous top capacity of 1800, it’s particularly well suited to large scale receptions.
