Cat and Jeavon were perfectly suited to these two stunning London wedding venues, they’re are absolute gems and the sort of places that photographers get very excited about. The Asylum has bags of quirky character and is flooded with natural light, and Trinity Buoy Wharf is effortlessly classy in its urban river side setting opposite the O2 on the Thames. When I first met Cat & Jeavon we chatted at length about how important the two venues were to them and how they thought my style of photography was suited to capturing their day in these environments. I couldn’t have been more happy to accept the challenge!
The Asylum was built in 1826 and bombed in World War II. It’s one of the most evocative venues in London and is a stunning backdrop for a ceremony. It’s a sought after location and often used for fashion shoots and music videos. You’d never find it if you didn’t know where it was, located in a housing estate in Peckham. It has an unassuming quality and no pretensions and for this reason is one of the most authentic venues in London. In many ways Trinity Buoy Wharf is the perfect complement to the Asylum as it was only refurbished in 1998 after lying derelict. It’s now a hub for the arts and creative industries retaining its character and charm in its urban docklands setting. Both seriously cool venues! Here’s a selection of my favourites from their day.
