The Old Church in Stoke Newington is a wonderful wedding reception venue. The Old Church is bang opposite St.Mary’s Anglican Church and 2 minutes walk from Stoke Newington Town Hall. This fab little venue is the oldest Elizabethan Church in England. It no longer functions as an actual place of worship, no weddings only wedding receptions.
The Old Church in Stoke Newington has a beautiful private garden that is perfect for wedding cocktails. Clissold Park and Clissold House (another awesome wedding reception venue) are easily accessible via a pretty lane. which is super useful for Mr & Mrs portraits. Clissold Park also has a great kids play ground which comes in useful for young families when kids get a wedding weary!
One of my favourite features of The Old Church is the original pulpit. This raised lectern is fantastic for wedding speeches. I recommend dropping in the venue some time to really get a feel for the place. In the mean time enjoy some of Tim and Annies wedding reception pictures. Drop me a line if you are planning your own Hackney wedding reception.
