ASYLUM CHAPEL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY LONDON

Winter Weddings – Turning low light into a highlight


THE BREAKDOWN:

Wedding Location: Asylum Chapel & Brunswick House, London
In Brief: Warm vibes and winter light at one of London’s most extraordinary and iconic venues – Southwark’s Asylum Chapel


Winter weddings present a completely different set of challenges to a summer wedding but if you embrace the aesthetic wholeheartedly then it’s possible to achieve some of the most beautiful images of the year.
One of the long term mantras of our wedding photography is that we work flash-free. This goes for summer weddings where the first dance starts in bright sunshine to the winter days where the ceremony could be held under pitch-black skies by candlelight. We are naturally often asked the (rather logical) question by other photographers: why do we do this? Why not have a flash-gun handy for those trickier conditions? For us it is about ensuring that we maintain consistency throughout all the photographs we take, from our street portfolio to our family and lifestyle to weddings; we want the feel and style of photography to shine through whatever we are shooting. It’s important to us that the wedding photographs have the same feel and atmosphere as the wedding itself; to reflect the true memory of being there (in part) by embracing the light (or lack of), the colour and mood.

Before Charlotte & Joe’s celebrations Asylum Chapel had been on our London wedding photography bucket-list for many years. From what we had seen of the venue it looked such an incredible place for a ceremony and it certainly did not disappoint. Each wall was filled with character and history and the lighting in the surroundings was beautiful and had a quality that if harnessed correctly was particularly satisfying.

Moving on from the Asylum chapel we were treated to a London bus ride with a group of guests so full of joy they could barely be seated. Finally though we arrived at our last destination of Brunswick House which hosted a decadent upstairs reception and a wild and extremely fun party basement.

Thanks to Charlotte and Joe for picking us for this treat of a day, here are just a few of our favourite frames.
