Do I have to book to come to the open viewing?
No , just turn up at the time specified on our website.
How do I find out what dates are free?
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to check availability.
Who do I contact regarding a registrar for the day?
Please contact Lewisham Registrars if you need to be legally married – this is a separate cost from the hire of AMP Studios and we would not organise on your behalf.
How do I book?
You should only book once you have a confirmation email from us that the date you want is free. Once this has been confirmed we can sent you a contract to complete.
Can I have access the night before/day after?
You will have access to the site on the day of your wedding from 11am – 1am. You will have one hour the following day to collect any items between 10am – 11am.
We are licensed to sell alcohol so you’re welcome to have a bar – we do not charge a corkage fee.
Clients can organise their own caterers but we do also have a list of excellent preferred and trusted suppliers. There is space on site to park street food vans or catering trucks next to the pavilion. There is also a hidden courtyard with access to both arches where caterers can set up a gazebo with access to running water and electrics.
Do you have a kitchen for caterers?
There is space on site to park street food vans or catering trucks and an outdoor tap and an area where tables can be set-up for caterers use.
Can you provide staff to help serve food and drink?
No, your caterers will need to provide their own staff.
Sound and Lighting
Clients can bring additional lighting (festoon lights are already set up). PA systems can be hired in.
What time does the music need to be switched off?
Music needs to be switched off at 12pm, the venue manager on the day will shut both shutters at 9pm. Whilst we are a party venue (AMP Studios), noise levels are restricted due to nearby residents. Our venue managers will be monitoring the sound levels on the night to ensure we don’t upset our neighbours.
We have bins for you to use but caterers must take their own food waste away with them at the end of the booking.
Is there space for loading?
Yes, any vehicles that need to load or unload can drive right on to the site, directly from the Old Kent Road. There are also loading bays directly outside the gates on the main road.
Where can guests park?
There is free parking on Wagner Street, directly behind the arches and on Ilderton Road, as well as on other residential roads in the local area. For aesthetic reasons we would not recommend your guests park directly onsite however your wedding car is very welcome to drive directly up to the arches.
How many toilets are there?
There is a toilet block with two bathrooms outside, and one fully accessible toilet within Arch 4.
Do you have cloakroom facilities?
There is a coat-rail for your use should you require.

Is confetti allowed?
Yes, but it must be biodegradable flower petals.
