Mayfair Library

 Westminster Register Office's main ceremony rooms are situated on the first floor of the historic Mayfair Library.

The library has a quiet, romantic atmosphere and is perfect for an intimate wedding or civil partnership ceremony.

From September 2017 until March 2018, work is scheduled to repair the roof of Mayfair Library. During this time, scaffolding will be erected around the building, but the front steps and porch will remain largely unaffected. A 'wrap' bearing a photo of the library’s exterior will hide the scaffolding underneath. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
