A renowned landmark in the heart of the town centre
Venue – Ceremonies
Colchester Town Hall boasts a variety of rooms that range in price and capacity. The Council Chamber is a particular favourite as it provides a traditional but unique setting. The wooden pews are fixed in a semi-circle layout around the bride and groom which gives the occasion a feeling of intimacy. Your photographer can make use of the balcony, giving you a collection of pictures from a variety of angles and perspectives.
Venue – Receptions
The Moot Hall is the most common room to hire for a wedding reception. It is very large; able to hold up to 180 people for the wedding breakfast and 200 guests for an evening reception. The high ceilings and ornate design gives a sophisticated atmosphere for your day. The room has a stage that can be utilised for live music acts, plus plenty of room for a dance floor. Being on the top floor of the Town Hall, the space is private and enclosed for your celebrations.
The venue itself does not have any outside space to support your wedding party, but Colchester Castle Park is a short walk down the road. There are a few photo opportunities around the building for the bride and groom, amongst the historical architecture and decor. The large group photos are commonly taken outside with the Town Hall as the backdrop or inside on the grand staircase. If you book The Grand Jury room, you also have use of the balcony for a classic photograph together.
Colchester Town Hall offers a prestigious location for your wedding ceremony and reception. We feel that due to it being so versatile and providing a good choice of rooms, that this venue is well worth considering for your wedding. They have all the necessary facilities including a lift, and car parking (for certain wedding packages). If you want your special day to be impressive and dignified, check out this monumental venue.
