Facilities and Capacity
The Old Court House was inspired by Malahide Castle in Dublin, Ireland. Historic and brimming with charms, it was built in 1827 where it has been perched ever since. Vines crawl up the facade, and stone and wood architectural elements exquisitely blend together to create a magical backdrop for “I dos.” From the downtown location, couples and their guests can take in the surrounding landscape, which includes the Fork of the Thames River. In all, it's a peaceful setting that is conveniently located within the city. The facilities are used for a range of events today, with the ability to accommodate gatherings of around 200 people. There are spaces both inside and out that can be used for the ceremony and reception with different layout possibilities. This versatility makes it easy for couples to organize a wedding that fits their vision.
The Old Court House offers services intended to make organizing your wedding simple. To streamline the planning process, their team offers event planning. Their catering professionals and expert bartenders can take care of the event’s dining experience. The catering team is led by Sally and George, who have over 40 years of experience in the culinary industry. With their passion in hand, they craft tailored menus for couples, helping them mark their milestone moment in a memorable way. Food can be served plated, buffet-style, family-style, as hors d'oeuvres, and more. The staff also offers setup and cleanup so you and your loved ones can focus on the festivities.

The Perfect Venue for the Perfect Day
We worked alongside Culinary Catering for our big day and had the absolute privilege of hosting our ceremony and reception at The Old Court House. It’s a castle in the middle of a bustling downtown London and it was the perfect backdrop for our day.
This building has so much history and our guests loved the ambience it created. It’s a one-stop shop for all your wedding needs (ceremony, cocktail hour, reception) and your fee includes free parking for the whole weekend. Bonus!
Culinary Catering was extremely patient with all our last minute changes and helped us with the other vendors we hired. We were able to set up our decorations the Friday afternoon before our Saturday wedding and because the temperatures dropped a bit, we moved our cocktail hour inside with no issues at all.
The ivy on the walls is absolutely stunning and made for UNREAL photographs. Our guests raved about the venue’s location and the unique experience its jail cells in the basement offered them.
BEAUTIFUL venue. Couldn’t have pictured a more perfect spot to have our big day!

We had our wedding here Sept 2019 and couldn’t of asked for a more beautiful venue... the ceremony outside was perfect for an elegant and breathtaking wedding!!! I can’t say enough about the staff and grounds at the old court house would use this venue again in a heart beat.
