Before booking

 

  1. Do I have to book to come to the open viewing?
  2. No , just turn up at the time specified on our website.

 

  1. How do I find out what dates are free?
  2. You can view our online calendar on the How to Book page of our website, or email us at weddings@maverickprojects.co.uk to check availability.

 

  1. Who do I contact regarding a registrar for the day?
  2. Please contact Southwark Registrar if you need to be legally married – this is a separate cost from the hire of Asylum and we would not organise on your behalf.

 

  1. How do I book?
  2. You should only book once you have a confirmation email from us that the date you want is free. Then use our online booking form, this is found on the how to book page. Items like the number of chairs can be altered nearer the date.

 

  1. How do the morning and afternoon slots work for ceremonies?
  2. The chairs, candles and lights will be set up for you for both slots. You are welcome to add flowers/extra lights etc but bear in mind these have to be put up/taken down in an hour. The hour between slots will be spent cleaning and resetting by Asylum staff. In the past couples have shared flowers for ceremonies on the same day which has worked really well.
