Pretty as a picture: Bride Tanya arrives fashionably late through the ornate entrance and splendid red doors of Asia House.


Asia House by Name and Asia by Nature

Asia House is a licensed civil wedding venue located in Marylebone, London.  However, it doesn’t cater just for weddings and the building isn’t called Asia House without reason.  Billed as ‘The Centre of Expertise on Asia‘, it has a rich history in aiding Anglo-Asian relations.  It is aimed more at the corporate world than the matrimonial one.  Weddings are something of a sideline but what a superb venue to hold yours…

We Love Our Photos…

Passionate First Kiss at Asia House Wedding London

My wife and I are so pleased we hired Guy Milnes to shoot our wedding: he did a fantastic job!  Patient, knowledgeable and really friendly as well.  We had our pictures back in good time and he even put together some bespoke thank you cards for us as well.  Very transparent about costs and easy to work with.  He put us at ease and we love our photo’s.  Thank you Guy!

Bridesmaid with Rings on Cushion at Wedding at Asia House

A Bridesmaid (and the couple's daughter) is excited to be presenting her Mummy and Daddy with the rings. Here, I photographed her as she anticipates the moment.


Elegant and Popular

Asia House is an 18th Century Grade II listed town-house in the centre of Marylebone and coming under the jurisdiction of the Westminster registrars.  It has several fine rooms used for ceremonies.  Largely due to the temporary closure and refurbishment of Old Marylebone Town Hall, the venue has become a very popular choice for engaged couples indeed.

Wedding guests assemble in Fine Room 1. This high room with it's ornate ceiling and large windows is a photogenic room fit for any medium sized wedding.


Wedding Photography at Asia House: Registrar Rules

 

Wedding photography is positively encouraged by the Westminster registrars.  Key is that they allow photography of the actual signing rather than a staged photo afterwards with a 'dummy' register.  As my photography is all about natural moments this suits me down to the ground.


Bridesmaid Giving Rings to Registrar at Wedding in Asia House

The moment arrives for the Bridesmaid as she hands up the rings to the registrar. The photographer should anticipate where to be at moments like this so I try to capture as much of the scene as I can.


Bride and Groom Laughing as They Exchange Rings

The delight of the happy couple is obvious in this most cheerful of shots of the exchange of rings. When I capture a photograph with such joy, I'm very happy too.


Group Photos After the Ceremony

Post-ceremony, the wedding party exit to the staircase where the photographer will take the group photos.  I tend to mix it up and take some there and others outside the front with the grand Georgian facade as the backdrop.  Asia House truly is the perfect setting for your perfect wedding day.  It is a venue where I really do enjoy photographing wedding days.

Having a gay/LGBT+ wedding, civil ceremony or baby naming?  Asia House caters for these too.


Fine Room 1 in Asia House from the Back

The main room as photographed from the back just before the vows. Your photographer should look for many different angles and viewpoints as they document your ceremony.


First Kiss at Asia House Wedding

The all important first kiss shot: I always tell the newly-weds to slow down for this crucial wedding moment. They are usually only too happy to oblige.


Asia House Wedding Ceremony Rooms

 

Fine Room 1: The house has 3 Georgian-styled but unimaginatively titled Fine Rooms at Asia House.  Fine Room 1 is the largest with a capacity of 100 (80 for a seated reception).  It features a marbled fire place at the front with an ornate painted ceiling.  With large windows looking out onto New Cavendish Street, the room is light and airy and perfect for wedding photography.  All the Fine Rooms are adjoining and you can use them to increase capacity for your reception.

Fine Room 2: Similar in style to the first room, yet slightly smaller it can hold 50 seated guests for the ceremony or 100 for a standing reception.

Fine Room 3: The most intimate of the rooms but with an amazing circular ceiling dating from it's time as a private house in the 1700's.  Both wedding ceremony and reception seat 30 guests.

Hutchison Room: Tastefully decorated in yellow with ornate features, this is another light and bright room.  Seats 40 people.

The Library: Worthy of a mention is this room's connection with the history of book collecting.  John Sloane designed the book shelves - the first adjustable book shelves ever made.  Holds up to 45 people.

Group Wedding Photo on Staircase at Asia House, London

A good place for a group shot of everyone is the staircase.  From the top a weird perspective makes those near the camera look far larger.


Wedding Confetti Bubbles on Steps at Asia House

Asia House doesn't allow confetti but bubbles are a popular alternative.  The Georgian facade is a beautiful backdrop post-ceremony.
