Asylum Chapel weddings are always fun to shoot. When Jo and Saskia got in touch I knew it was going to be an awesome wedding. Located in the heart of Peckham tucked away out of sight, it really is a quirky hidden treasure.I instantly fell in love with Jo and Saskia because of their lust for life. They are creatives living in London with a passion for food and their gorgeous dog Pepperoni Puppy (yes you read that correctly).

During the ceremony they blasted out ‘I’m a believer’ by The Monkees. It was a raucous rendition which set the tone for the rest of the wedding. After an epic confetti throwing, the couple were whisked away in a classic Ford Mustang to their reception at AMP Studios in Shoreditch.
The speeches were incredibly emotional, the food divine and everyone danced into the early morning to an eclectic mash up of 90s classics and 80s bangers.
Alternative Wedding in London
Don’t just take my word for it. Here’s what Jo and Saskia had to say.
After Jo had an unsuccessful date with a friend of mine, we ended up working together and sharing a desk . It only took about two weeks before we were together.
We actually proposed at the same time. For our four year anniversary we had a trip to Puglia planned and we had both decided it was the time! We both hid our rings in our sunglasses cases (the only place the other wouldn’t look) and when Jo got out a small box on our first night at dinner, I told her to fuck off, stormed upstairs and promptly came back down with my own little box! It couldn’t have been more perfect – it was amazing to be so on the same page!!
We wanted the venue to be in the heart of London, and we wanted to make it ours – we didn’t want a cookie cutter venue, we wanted a blank canvas and The Asylum and AMP Studios were perfect.
