If you've never heard of The Asylum London wedding venue before then you're in for a treat! Picture original stained glass windows, a large open space and a spine-tingling atmosphere littered with dried flowers and pillar candles. Plus, the most beautiful couple in complimenting bridal gowns at their intimate ceremony conducted by, Recommended celebrant, Nat Raybould.

Intimate Asylum London wedding venue inspiration with two brides and dried flower arrangements.

We wanted to elevate the already beautiful space at The Asylum and work with the existing architecture. It inspired a wedding vision that was dehydrated and derelict.

The Asylum London wedding venue is a grade II National listed building, with, original altar and stained glass windows. It’s such a beautiful, unique space, with crumbling walls, and the way the light comes in is glorious. We wanted to add a little bit of a contemporary edge, creating a contrast with the old, dark space using a palette of whites, beiges and creams.


Sarah from Stories Of Events created a romantic yet modern statement table, with elegant textured pieces. Emma Coxadorned the altar with dried installations, including a fresh selection of roses and seasonal flowers. She also created a meadow in concrete vessels down the table and a statement piece at the front. We wanted the florals and styling to be contemporary, tying the space and the fashion together.

Two brides and two wedding dresses equal double the bridal inspiration.

Karimah and Storry wore gowns by Made With Love Bridal, which added to the contemporary feel. The girls looked amazing, in dresses which complemented each other. Storry wore the Carla A-Line, and the new Mila. Whilst Karimah wore the Lottie v2 and the Ryder. The embellishment and texture on the dresses looked incredible in the space with the styling.
