My friends got married here recently. It's a wonderful quirky venue just outside Angel tube station and within walking distance from Islington Town Hall. There's a spacious ante area that can be sectioned into different zones (i.e. kids playground, lounge area, etc.), a wonderful bus converted into a bar and a banquet room that conveniently accommodated 70 people (I'd say any more would have been bothersome). The venue has an impressive props room (I visited with my bride-friend in the run up to the wedding), so you can style away, and the owner - a quirky and lovely lady of an unidentifiable age - is happy to give suggestions based on her impressive experience. The only drawback we've experienced is that the greenhouse style glass roof (that adds to the ambience as the afternoon light filters in) also made it stuffy at some point as the wedding happened during the rarely seen heatwave (but then we all know the probability of that happening again). The owners also run the Electrowerkz nightclub (goth as if it were 1990 all over again) next door, in case you, like some of us, succumb to a tequila shot too many.
