25 Oct Asylum Wedding
Asylum Wedding // Anna & Sam
An Asylum wedding is always going to be a treat, purely because it’s such an incredible venue with really exquisite light. Add to that a comedian groom with a few tricks up his sleeve, a plimsoll-wearing bride who made everyone’s paper flower bouquets, and the incredible Tim Key delivering the wedding reading to end all wedding readings, and you have a day that was a joy to photograph. My day started down in Peckham at the Asylum with Anna and Sam’s guests arriving, before Anna arrived with her bridesmaids and the ceremony began. After an impressive confetti pelt, there was time for a few gin cocktails outside before everyone headed over to Finsbury Town Hall, the gorgeous grade II listed building on Clerkenwell’s Roseberry Avenue. More booze and the cutting of a tremendously tall cake and then it was dinner time. According to Sam, a wedding isn’t a wedding unless you wheel out a fully functioning metal guillotine and perform a magic trick using a banana, an iceberg lettuce and your own head. Fortunately, all went to plan and Anna’s husband of just a few hours lived to see the silent disco and tuck into the takeaway pizza later that evening. Seeing a crowd of people bopping to 3 very different songs at any one time is a truly magical experience. It was my first silent disco and I LOVED IT. It would be an understatement to say that Anna & Sam’s Asylum wedding was a lot of fun, and some favourites which illustrate this are below.
