If you’re planning a wedding at Asylum Chapel in Peckham, you’ll be inspired by this wedding!

Kiki and Nick got married at Asylum Chapel, which is a unique Grade-II listed chapel in Peckham with antique chapel seating, floral decoration and romantic lighting that contrast with the tall Georgian ceilings and aged grandeur to create a truly intimate setting. The stained glass windows and crumbling stonework are so unique to this beautiful venue. It was a gorgeous day and filled with autumnal sunshine!

Getting hitched

The ceremony was an intimate service inside the Asylum Chapel. During the ceremony they read their own vows bathed in the October sunshine streaming through the stained glass windows.

The couple decorated the area with lots of candles and foliage, which complemented the stonework. The reception was outside in the gardens at the Asylum Chapel – I love this venue because it has so many great opportunities for portraits. Weddings at the Asylum Chapel are unlike any other venue; the light is just incredible.

Why the Asylum Chapel is a great place to get married

The Asylum Chapel is perfect for couples wanting a unique, atmospheric ceremony in London, and is one of the coolest places to get married in Peckham. The venue offers an amazing atmosphere for a wedding, including drink service and canapés, chair hire lighting and romantic candle decoration. The total capacity is 120 and is even pet friendly – I love dogs at weddings! There are so many incredible backdrops that are perfect for photos. The light in the Chapel is unreal and the place has an otherworldly atmosphere that you get totally absorbed in.

The party

Everyone nibbled on meringues and sipped fizz after a confetti exit. After creating some relaxed portraits, we hopped on a route master bus to the evening reception at The Rosendale in Dulwich, a cool London pub setting where the room was decorated with giant wedding balloons and green foliage. They finished off the evening with a packed out dance floor!

The couple

Kiki got in touch with me over Instagram after seeing my post about the Chapel – cheers Insta algorithm! They said they wanted a relaxed photographer, and I loved that they just really wanted me there. I can’t tell you how much I loved working with these guys (including their little son Magnus), their family and friends. The whole day just flowed effortlessly, completely personal to them.

Advice for planning your wedding at the Asylum Chapel

Asylum Chapel is one of two different wedding venues in Peckham that Maverick Projects has to offer. Both are unusual wedding venues and their uses can be combined to create your perfect day: why not opt for a joint package of using Asylum Chapel for your ceremony, signing, seated drinks and canapés, and then head just eight minutes on foot to AMP Studios for your reception under two railway arches?

Charlotte, what can we say! We are so so so delighted we found you! We love all the photos and are so very grateful! You’ve literally captured it all so well. Thank you for everything. Kiki, Nick & little Magnus x
