ASYLUM CHAPEL WEDDING | JANE & THOMAS

ASYLUM CHAPEL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Jane and Thomas were married on Mayday at the gorgeous Asylum Chapel by Maverick Events and what a fine day it was too.

This was my first Asylum Chapel Wedding Photography (a.k.a. Caroline Gardens Chapel, London). Beforehand I would have told you that there is no such thing as a perfect wedding photography location but now I’m not so sure. Of course, without having had the roof blown off it may have slipped into quiet obscurity instead of becoming on of London’s most unique and alternative wedding venues which along with AMP Studios is owned by Maverick Events.

ASYLUM CHAPEL

The Asylum Chapel was built by the Licensed Victualers Benevolent Institution for the residents of Caroline Gardens (of which the chapel is part) who were retired workers in the local alcohol trade. Built in 1826 it has a Grade II listing. Bombed by the Luftwaffe in World War II the chapel lost its roof and was left to decay before being partially restored. This explains the beautiful patina of decay inside as the many layers of paint peeled. It’s suitable for up to 120 guests and one thing is for certain, they’ll be talking about your ceremony for years to come!

Enjoy the photos, we start with Jane writing thank-you cards and Thomas then delivering them by hand all around Peckham followed by a pre-ceremony pint at the pub. After the ceremony at the Asylum we went for a magical mystery tour on a London Routemaster bus to the reception venue.

RECEPTION VENUE

Asylum Chapel is a bit of a cake and eat it venue. It allows you to get married in a Church without the “church bits” and is a relaxed and informal environment for a Humanist wedding ceremony you can customise to suit your own needs perfectly. Afterwards you’ll need another venue for the wedding breakfast and after-show party… just like a church wedding. Jane + Thom went to Hackney City Farm but as it’s London there are literally thousands of options. Take look at some of my swanky East Dulwich Pub weddings for ideas or head off to a posh restaurant. London is your Oyster, enjoy!

ALTERNATIVES TO ASYLUM CHAPEL FOR PHOTOGRAPHY LOVERS

One problem with looking for unique and alternative London Wedding Venues is that they can book up years in advance. If you had your heart set on Asylum Chapel but it wasn’t available maybe one of these left-field wedding venues will help dry those tears:

One Friendly Place
Wilton’s Music Hall
Barbican Centre
The Soho Hotel
Dead Dolls House, Islington
Castle Gibson | MC Motors
Searcys | The Gherkin
Sunbeam Studios, Notting Hill

…or for the ultimate in luxury, quirky and irreverent alternative wedding venues take a look at the deliciously decadent Aynhoe Park in Northamptonshire.

…and finally, if you are looking for your very own Asylum Chapel Wedding Photographer please get in touch. I would love to be a small part of your big day.

Contact

Since 2005 I've photographed over 500 weddings from Surrey to Scotland to Sweden. From 4 guests to 600, from Castles to Tipis they all have one thing in common, couples who want something more meaningful from their wedding photographs than pretty snapshots. My goal is to give you not just photos for today, but a lasting legacy for the decades ahead. I can't wait to hear from you.
