With a history dating back to the 16th century, tradition is at the heart of Stationers’ Hall. A Grade I listed building in the City of London, we are a stone’s throw from St. Paul’s Cathedral, and offer a seamless blend of welcoming warmth and striking grandeur.
Stationers' Hall and Garden is a private and secluded haven within the City of London. We can accommodate up to 200 for a ceremony and reception and offer flexibility for ceremony-only events in the mornings or exclusive hire for the full day.
Your ceremony will take place in the Court Room which overlooks the Garden and has direct access to it via a decorative wrought iron staircase. It can seat up to 120 guests and is a beautiful space for a drinks reception should the weather be inclement.
This room is wonderfully bright, richly carpeted, and with Rococo ornamentation in gold adorning the walls. It is dominated by the 18th century carved mantelpiece which is a feature that will equally impress guests.
If your numbers are over 120 then the stunning Main Hall will host your ceremony and during your reception, we will transform it for your wedding breakfast.
You are officially married so it is time for your reception, our secluded Garden is an ideal space for your drinks’ reception and those all-important photos. It has an abundance of seasonal plants and flowers, and the impressive London plane tree offers welcome shelter and shade come rain or shine. We can decorate the garden to your specifications, too, to help create that perfect intimate atmosphere.
The Main Hall itself has many features such as gleaming oak flooring and carved oak paneling originating from the 1600s. The huge stained-glass windows give this room an impressive ambiance during the day or in the evening when backlit. The use of candles is permitted throughout adding to the ambiance – a rarity in Livery Halls. The Hall accommodates various table set-ups using either long tables (up to 200) or round tables (up to 150). Dancing is permitted in the Main Hall, and with a baby grand piano that can be used for a small fee and a PA system throughout you are sorted for your speeches.
Dancing takes place in either the Stock Room or the Main Hall, the latter of which can also host live musicians, this is time to let loose and celebrate with your friends and family.
Our wedding venue hire prices allow for the exclusive use of the rooms and garden, so you will have our sole attention on your big day. All parts of the venue are secure, and after our 2021 refurbishment, fully accessible and air-conditioned.
Stationers’ Hall has a license for civil ceremonies, including civil partnerships.

I just wanted to send you a big fat thank you for all of your hard work, effort and assistance you have given to Chancery and our reception ...
The evening was amazing, everything flowed and everyone working on the evening were professional and friendly and I am so impressed. Stationers' Hall really is a lovely venue but it wouldn’t be so good without you guys and your respective amazing staff. CH&Co's food was delicious and please do pass on my thanks and gratitude to your team and chef (the vegan options were amazing). I’ve already had a flurry of emails from attendees saying what a great time they had and how lovely the food was. Thanks again so much for everything – I really have appreciated it (you both made my job so much easier).

We initially chose Stationers for the beautiful private garden, magnificent rooms and central location ...
As plans for our wedding progressed it became clear to us that the team at Stationers were even more special than the venue. Nothing was too much trouble for them and their calm, thoughtful advice made the whole process seem like a real partnership.
