With this not being the first time I’d created an Asylum Chapel Wedding Video, I was excited to be going back. It’s got this magical dusty light which comes through superbly on video, setting a somewhat ethereal vibe. When Flo enquired, i was a little hesitant about saying ‘yes’ before chatting to my wife first. The isn’t standard protocol, no, it was because Flo & Tom were getting married on the due date of our third child. My wife Emily didn’t hesitate to say ‘oh yes film their wedding’ which i thought was because she knows how much my work means to me, and there is only a 5% chance of even going into labour on your due date, but actually she didn’t hesitate to say yes because apparently i make a rubbish birthing partner. I digress. Tom & Flo were having a VERY last-minute wedding, enquiring just a month or so before the big day, this was because Flo’s father was really unwell, and they brought the wedding forward in a hope that he’d be able to attend the wedding. Although Flo’s father is no longer with us, I’m so pleased that he was able to join us on the day and is forever immortalised in their joyous video.

The day itself was magical. It was a crisp blue January day, and Flo & Tom tied the knot at The Asylum in Peckham, then we all went on to celebrate at Brunswick House, a quirky antique-filled Georgian mansion in the centre of London, complete with wine cellar come basement party.

“We’ll be recommending you to the world and his dog! Thank you so much for our beautiful film, we adore it!”

When Kirsty and Will first got in touch back in March 2019, they described their wedding as ‘a relaxed weekday winter wedding’, which for me conjures images of a small family affair, everyone huddled in a pub after the registry, for a mulled wine toast to the happy couple. Well, it was far from that. I mean, I should have probably guessed that when I heard that the day was being hosted at Trinity Buoy Wharf, a former lighthouse-come-space for arts and culture; its refined and cool, a bit like our Will & Kirsty, in fact.

It was a wet windy December day, most brides nightmare, but i don’t think Kirsty mentioned the weather once whilst getting ready, it really didn’t affect the sort of day these guys had planned – it was all about just having all of the right people together, in a fitting venue, with great food, great music.

From my perspective, the day was an absolute pleasure to capture, a beautiful venue, 100+ charismatic and social guests all interacting with one another, and a lovely couple of clients. It was also great to meet Libby from Libby Christensen Photography who I captured the day alongside. Libby’s similar approach to mine made working together an absolute breeze. Cheers Libby!

Oh my goodness we’ve just watched the videos and absolutely loved them so much!!!! Thanks so much for capturing so many lovely moments it’s so special to have these and we’re really grateful to you for them!!!
Thank you!!!!

 

This was my first wedding where the couple shared the same name, John & John. So simple, it got confusing. For differentiation, I took to them being American John, and English John. It also made for rather fun vowels; “Do you John, take you John to be your lawfully wedding husband, I do, thank you John, Do you John, take you John to be your lawfully wedding husband, i do, thank you John!” Then to keep the theme running, John’s (American John’s that is)dad was called John (Senior), and John’s (English John’s) best man was called John (Well, actually Jon, but let’s not let the truth get in the way of a good story). How fun!

Names to one side, it was a beautiful day with a very gentle and kind couple. The Saville Club is one of these Ancient (18th century to be more precise) private members clubs, where the elegant handprinted wallpaper is adorned with dusty portraits of the London gentry of times past. Any who, it made for a good spot for a knees up to celebrates the John’s nuptials. Check out the highlights clip!

I just wanted to send a note to say we viewed the entire video last night and it was probably the most joy I have known since the wedding! You captured everything so beautifully; thank you so very much for all your work on this and for sharing your talent with us. We are simply over the moon.
I have watched the highlights film about 10 times so far and am already looking forward to watching it again when I get a break at work! You did such a fabulous job, and we are really, really grateful.
