6. Asylum Chapel, London
A historic setting that is a blank canvas for ultra-modern décor, Asylum Chapel will provide lashings of atmosphere for your wedding. While only offering the ceremony and not the reception, you are able to arrange a champagne toast and canapés after saying your vows. We still think that’s pretty cool…
