My third visit to Asylum, and my third different season. After doing summer and winter weddings it was time for a spring one, complete with the most amazing blossom on the big tree out front. This was my first ceremony-only visit to Asylum, and Lucy and her entourage were based at the reception venue for their preparations, The Hospital Club in Covent Garden. A perfect pair of venues for Lucy, a doctor.
With beautification complete and fancy rags (and very fancy shoes) donned we had a much more straightforward journey to Asylum than my last one! The amazing light in Caroline Gardens Chapel didn’t disappoint, and we even had a gospel choir to liven up proceedings. After the ceremony we all headed outside to add some confetti to the layer of fallen blossom, and then a short drinks reception back inside the chapel with more singing.
Then it was time for everyone to return to The Hospital Club on a pair of Routemasters, with a short unplanned walk thanks to a police roadblock. Time for cocktails before the wedding breakfast, and post-dinner Jägerbombs for the grandparents, before the speeches. Finally, everyone headed upstairs for some late-night dancing on a very full dance floor.
