London Wedding Photographer - Anna & Stuart get married at The Asylum in Peckham

Happily I had a second opportunity to shoot at the marvellously unique London wedding venue that is The Asylum in Peckham.  The building itself is a grade 2 listed chapel built in 1826 for the use of the residents of Caroline Gardens.  Bombed in WWII the chapel has been derelict since then and reduced to it's simplest elements.  It's essentially four walls and a roof with a raised alter platform at the end but the light is divine and the painted walls create a dreamy and muted backdrop.  You can no longer have a sit down meal at the chapel but you can stay for drinks and canapés after, which is what A & S did before heading off to The Lordship pub for a hearty pub supper.  Oh, and did I mention that Anna wore a purple gown?  Perfect.
