So autumn rolls on, with all of the colours and all of the love. Today brings you the marvellous Johanna and Jack at the always-lovely RSA House.
I first met Johanna and Jack in 2011 when I shot Holly and Steve’s wedding (who I saw last year for a family shoot when they were home for a visit from Australia – and they’ve now moved back to England). They’d just started seeing each other back then, and here we were 6 years later, together again and cementing their lives together. Now two are three, and their gorgeous little boy Sam who was front and centre today, just as it should be).
An easy train journey up, a short walk over the Thames, and I arrived to see the RSA in the capable hands of Rosalind and her team. I’m proud to be a recommended photographer here, and huge thanks as always to all of the staff for a warm welcome once again. Massive thanks also to a great team of fellow suppliers – Eram at Boom Blooms, Hannah at Butter Beautiful, and Kit Hall on make-up. Also huge thanks to Claire, Gaz and Stu (Bridesmaid and Best Men respectively) for being great fun.
So, weather holding firm after some early rain we were downstairs for a lovely ceremony, complete with Sam managing to fall asleep on Jack’s shoulder mid-ceremony. This photograph will surely be used for embarrassment purposes with future girlfriends! The dry weather meant I was able to take Johanna and Jack on a wander around the local streets. Beautiful moments resulted. Back to the RSA for the remainder of the day. A wonderful meal. Great speeches. Down to The Vaults for the evening entertainment. The very last photo below shows a limbo dance-off……
What a day, and what a couple. The very opposite of stressed. The very definition of what’s meant to be. Effortless class, effortless humour, effortless to work for.
Once again this year another wedding reaches back into the past, and in doing so reminds me of the permanence of some things. In this case love, and what that means for Johanna and Jack.
Thank you both, so much. This is your story….
