Wedding Photography at Asia House, Marylebone
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…
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!

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 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.
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.
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.
