Asylum Chapel Peckham Wedding
Asylum Chapel Wedding
J&J were a super fun couple wanting a very relaxed and fun wedding day. Keeping a lot of things informal and light hearted like their personalities.
The wedding day itself was a super fun event- having done an engagement shoot I knew that they were really lovely to be around and up for creativity. Not wanting any getting ready shots their coverage started from ceremony arrivals through to first dance. The Asylum chapel is a really unique space where they both had a blessing and were able to make this part really unique.
Here was the part where these guys wanted to get creative with the space, working with their bridal party as well as unique couple shots with the beautiful bride and her amazing lace wedding dress.
I really liked the architecture of the space, and they left in their topless car with the wind in their hair! Guests took a trip in a London rerouter bus to their reception area. The speeches were creative and dotted between couples as well as a drinks reception. Followed by a first dance to open the dance floor.
I really enjoyed this day as I was able to get creative with a couple who were so flexible and up for a challenge!
About the Photographer
We chat to Asylum Chapel Wedding photographer, Emma-Jane Photography.
I am a London, Oxfordshire and destination wedding photographer mixing my fashion and wedding work together to create a different style for couples.
My style fuses my fashion style with my wedding clients to create images that are elongate but have a fashion twist. I look heavily at the backdrops and how things should be composed. I do love candid moments in the wedding day- which is about 80% of the day- so it is about getting the right angle and light for those moments to make them stylish and relatable.
What did you love about the day?
My favourite part really was the couple shots, having such a stylish couple and beautiful dress really allowed me to push ideas. We were quite tight on time but managed to get the shots done in time!
What advice would you give to couples planning their wedding day?
Get creative with couples shots and really trust your photographer- if your open to ideas they will push their own creative boundaries.
