Real Wedding: Holly and James at The Asylum
Photography by My Beautiful Bride
Bride and Groom: Holly and James
Wedding venue: The Asylum – it’s a very romantic venue, incredibly atmospheric, and the closest we could get to marrying in an environment that felt like a church without having a religious ceremony. Venue Website
Photographer: Michael Clements from My Beautiful Bride. I actually found him via a wedding blog and loved his style of photography so much that I sent him an email straight away.
Michael was very forthcoming and responsive, incredibly easy to work with and accompanied us on venue recces to assess the light, come up with great shots. We really let him lead in terms of what he thought might look good (even when my mum tried to get the dreaded ‘group family shot’) and were so impressed with the results. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding photographer!
The Wedding Day: Holly and James were married in June at Caroline Garden's Chapel (aka The Asylum) London SE15 for the ceremony and then the reception at The Rosendale Pub in West Dulwich.The Asylum is about 10 minutes from the couples flat and they wanted a ceremony location that felt relevant and local to their lives.
The Rosendale Pub just seemed like the perfect reception venue – a gastro pub not far from The Asylum, in a leafy London location, not too formal, with excellent food, a great space for a sit down wedding breakfast and a beer garden that would accommodate evening guests too. It’s also got an amazing rooftop where we could go and have sunset photos taken. One of our favourite moments of the day was immediately after the ceremony drinking champagne on The Asylum steps, having photos taken.
