The Asylum, London Wedding Photography – Jen + Andrzej

Jen and Andrzej were married at The Asylum Chapel before going on to celebrate at The Peasant in London.

It was another scorching day as we travelled into central London for Jen and Andrzej’s big day. As it turns out, our commute was nothing compared to their guests, some of whom had come in from Poland, Korea, The U.S. and more. It was incredibly touching to see this couple’s reactions as they realised how far people had come to share the celebrations.

We started with a Humanist ceremony at The Asylum Chapel, so already, this is an awesome wedding.  We’d been looking forward to shooting at this venue for a long time, it’s just so cool. It sings out to our inner goths. Humanist ceremonies tend to be our favourite too. You can do away with formalities and have something that’s totally tailored to yourself, they end up being much more personal and heartfelt.

After some quick pictures, canapés and bubbly, everyone jumped on a bus to take us north of the river to The Peasant for some of the best pub grub you can get, we had the belly pork, it was most excellent. In the evening there were a couple more ceremonies. A Paebaek to honour Jen’s Korean heritage and then sharing of bread, salt and vodka to honour Andrzej’s Polish roots.

There was so much energy and joy at this wedding, we’ll remember it for a long long time. Although we’ve already forgotten how to do the electric slide despite the lesson on the dance floor.
