Asylum wedding photography

Just 24 frames from Gemma & Paul’s awesome wedding from May 2016. And rather a lot of B&W – because it just seemed to work…


Gemma & Paul were possibly the potential winners of closest-to-my-house ever wedding, but I had to go and spoil it by moving away from East Dulwich. SE22, where they live, provided the perfect backdrop to a laidback, but super fun wedding day. Gemma and her family got ready in big house in Peckham, spilling out across the floors, and which just happened to have the perfect little garden for some bridal party shots. After their ceremony at the incredible Asylum chapel over in Peckham, they headed back to the Lordship Pub for feasting and fun. Choosing to keep the day simple and relaxed; after dinner instead of clearing the tables away for a DJ they had a great roaming band, who wandered the pub and had everyone up dancing and singing long before the sun went down.

Gemma & Paul, you were awesome. Here’s a few of my personal favourites…
