Imogen and Stuart knew that they wanted their day to truly represent them as a couple. With a small guest list of 100 loved ones, it was a non-traditional, understated, and intimate celebration. And they pulled off every detail—from the unconventional venue to the stylish attire—without a planner!
The couple exchanged their vows at the unconventional Asylum Chapel—an abandoned church complete with sky-high ceilings and stained glass windows. To add subtle character to the existing abandoned aesthetic, they filled the chapel with candles and string lights. The contemporary theme was then carried onto their reception to give the industrial 100 Barrington a full transformation.
The couple put their own twist on their wedding attire, bucked tradition, and served fashion-forward looks. Imogen rocked a white trouser suit by The Kooples and a blush Dolce & Gabbana lace corset—the perfect inspiration for out-of-the-box couples. If this sounds like you, keep scrolling for ideas on how to add modern twists to timeless classics. These gorgeous images by Maja Tsolo are teeming with ideas.

Finding The Right Venues That Matched Their Chic Modern Wedding Vision
We were set on finding our ceremony and reception venues based in London that fit the rustic industrial theme. Having this at the back of our minds helped us focus and eliminate any venues that didn’t match our vision.
They Treated Their Guests To Their Favorite Persian Food
Everyone loved the food! Our menu was Persian-inspired as this is one of our favorite cuisines. We had sharing platters so that guests could go back for more.
