Selina and Stuart's Wedding at the Asylum Chapel in London

Wedding photography at the Asylum Chapel

The beautiful Asylum Chapel in London is a Grade II listed building and seeped in history. It dates back to 1826 and was originally built for the residents of Caroline Gardens to use. During World War II the chapel was heavily bombed although it remained very much intact. Today the venue is a very popular space available to hire after it was brought back into use in 2010 by a pair of artists.

The building is a fantastic piece of architecture with colourful stained glass windows, crumbling paintwork and large windows. These allow for the beautiful natural light that the Asylum Chapel is so well known for. It’s a unique space that’s full of charm and character with couples exchanging their vows in front of the altar. With a backdrop of flowers and candles, this makes for a warm and enticing setting. The stunning setting is licensed for weddings and can hold up to 120 guests for the ceremony. It’s possible to have a short drinks reception and canapés here although for a full reception, it’s best to head offsite.

Autumn wedding photos in London

Stuart and Selina are a fantastic couple living in London and they got married at the Asylum Chapel in November. Their ceremony was held at 4 pm with the sun setting outside so this was a wedding ceremony and drinks reception solely lit by candles and artificial lights.

It was a wonderful ceremony and I tiptoed around during the service to get a variety of different angles. Once married their friends and family congregated around the happy couple to congratulate them with a glass of bubbly.

After half an hour or so the guests left the chapel and jumped on a London Routemaster to the main reception making for a novel journey. This gave me some time with the newlyweds to capture some atmospheric evening shots in the iconic candlelit chapel. We enjoyed working with Stuart and Selina and are very grateful to them for choosing Alicia and me as their wedding photographers.

Here are some of my favourite shots from their big day at the gorgeous Asylum Chapel……
