Real Wedding: A Romeo and Juliet Inspired Celebration in Peckham

Africa and Jermel took inspiration from the greatest love story of all time for the aesthetic of their July wedding day, choosing to decorate with over 500 candles and gold leaf crockery to channel Baz Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet. The couple held their ceremony and reception at the ethereal Asylum in Peckham, and selected the bridesmaids' dresses to complement the dramatic venue. Africa took matters into her own hands when it came to her wedding dress, designing a bespoke gown that flattered her perfectly - complete with a dramatic 7.5 ft veil. Photographer | Caught the Light
