Newlyweds begin the next chapter of their lives at Fulham Library

The first couple to get married at Fulham Library have said they were delighted with the new venue. 

Emma Saunders tied-the-knot with her husband Toby at the Grade II-listed building earlier this year.

“It was brilliant, a really nice space, with all the flowers, all my friends, it was just fabulous,” she said

“We were able to decorate it ourselves and the register office staff were really helpful.

“It was spot on, exactly how we wanted it to be. It was a bit different and everyone was impressed.”

They booked Fulham library, in Fulham Road, after looking at a host of other locations. The couple live in south London but have family in Fulham.

“It’s a really nice space and it’s a really good size,” said Emma. “We had a look at other register offices and they could either hold 40 people or a couple of hundred, there didn’t seem to be anything in between.”

Built in 1908, the library’s main hall has space for up to 120 guests. It has well-maintained features, such as original wooden book cabinets, which can provide the perfect backdrop for photographs.

The library – which is situated close to Parsons Green tube station – is easily accessible by public transport and by car.

Emma and Toby got married in April and have recently returned from their honeymoon in Bali.
