Gorgeous Venue for Weddings
Going to the chapel and we’re going to get married
There can be few more amazing venues to hold your non-religious wedding or civil partnership than the Fitzrovia Chapel. Centrally located in the heart of the city of London, yet intimate and unique in flavour, the Grade II*-listed chapel exudes grace, beauty, history and Gothic charm. When you take a look through our pictures or come for a viewing, you’ll discover that the chapel is truly the kind of place where memories are made. We want to reassure you that should Covid-19 restrictions prevent your wedding from going ahead as planned, we will help you in rescheduling the chapel hire at no extra cost or give you a refund. That’s a guarantee from us.
An Unusual London Wedding Venue
Take a look at the wedding photos on this page and you’ll see that the chapel is a different kind of place to get married. Many of our couples have been searching for a venue that’s like no other. We offer a building so steeped in beautiful design and history that you almost don’t need to dress it up fo the day — but of course you can.
There’s a certain style and exclusivity that comes with the chapel and, blended with your own ideas and wishes, this makes it a fabulous location for your special day.
A legal or non-legal ceremony?
We are a registered venue for civil wedding ceremonies. This means that you can be legally married at the chapel if your ceremony is officiated by registrars from the London Borough of Westminster. This is a civil ceremony. You book the registrars on Westminster’s Day to Remember website. Please check our availability and ask us all your questions before you do that. Our hire charge is separate to Westminster’s fee.
However, you may wish to do something slightly different, outside of the legal (and religious) restrictions. You may like to make your vows in the presence of a humanist minister or a celebrant, for example. This can be a truly beautiful occasion. Some couples take care of the legal part at Westminster Registry Office but have a day to remember at the chapel as well.
Your Wedding at the Chapel
You can choose to have an intimate ceremony or a larger wedding with drinks afterwards. We would be delighted to work with you to create a bespoke wedding ceremony at our unique location.
When you’re deciding on something as important as your wedding location, there will be questions to ask each venue. From our experience, here are 10 questions that should be high on your list:
- How many guests does the venue hold?
- Will the ceremony be legal?
- What does a secular wedding mean?
- What does the venue hire fee includes?
- What is the curfew?
- Do you have any suggestions regarding live music, caterers, decorations or flowers?
- Does the organ work? Can we have an organist for our wedding?
- How much time do we need for a wedding ceremony?
- What are the restrictions regarding decorations?
- Can we have confetti?
