We've been on a Virtual Tour of The Old Marylebone Town Hall - iconic London wedding venue for Paul and Ringo (yes The Beatles), Liam Gallagher (twice), Claudia Winkleman (British TV favourite), and Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas (Hollywood Glamour).
Our tour, led by Registrars Mark Tiller, Alison Cathcart and Lael Douglas took us through their seven stunning ceremony rooms and onto the glamorous entrance stairway where thousands of couples have been photographed on their big day.
