Jade + Nathan
Asylum and Tanner Warehouse Wedding Photography, London
I’m not a fan of heights, so for Jade’s preparations I was apprehensive heading up to the Shangri-La hotel. For the uneducated, the hotel is halfway up the Shard. However, the view across central and south London was worth any butterflies that I may have had. I even got right up to the glass to get a good shot of the cityscape. Once ready Jade travelled to my second home at Asylum in a white London taxi, whilst I travelled with her bridesmaids on a Routemaster bus.
Meanwhile, Nathan was patiently waiting in the atmospheric surroundings of Caroline Garden’s Chapel AKA Asylum. I’ve been lucky enough to work at Asylum five or six times now, and it never ceases to impress. The groom didn’t have to wait long before Jade made her entrance. The civil ceremony was paused briefly for a singalong, and with the legal stuff in the bag everyone headed outside for confetti and drinks. After a little while everyone headed over to the Routemaster (which had been joined by a friend) for the journey back to SE1.
Unbeknownst to me, and the bride, Tanner Warehouse had suffered an electrical fire the evening before and so the light was a little lower than normal! A heroic effort to keep the show on the road had been made by Laura from Holden Bespoke, with the aid of battery-powered fairy lights. After the wedding breakfast (cooked with the aid of a huge generator!) and the cheese-cutting, we were treated to speeches. Then it was time for dancing, with modern classics performed in a Hot Club jazz style by Gypsies of Bohemia. Highly recommended if you like a full dance floor.
