Licensed to host marriage and civil partnership ceremonies, the tranquil sanctuary of Stationers’ Hall is the perfect place to get wed.
With a story that has evolved over hundreds of years, its beauty and tradition – not to mention a desirable location just a few steps from St Paul’s Cathedral – provides an ideal backdrop for your special day.
The Stationers' Company originated in 1403 when the Mayor of the City of London approved the formation of a stationers' guild, whose members were text writers and illuminators of manuscript books, booksellers, bookbinders and suppliers of parchment, pens and paper. A stationer was one who traded from a 'stationery' stall round St Paul's Cathedral.
The ambition of all Livery companies was to own a hall and the Stationers were no exception. In 1606, the Stationers purchased Abergavenny House on the site of the present Hall. During the early days of September 1666, the Great Fire destroyed the major part of the City of London and Abergavenny House was burned to the ground.
Work on the present Hall began in 1670 and by 1673 it was ready for use. Additions took place at the end of the 18th century, including the magnificent stained glass windows in the Livery Hall.
