As a wedding photographer, naturally, I attend a lot of weddings and Rosalind and Simon – my first wedding of 2017, were a wonderfully special way to begin the year. As you can see from their photos, they absolutely adore each other. Both had been married earlier in their lives and they met on line, proof enough that love and happiness can be found again.
Simon and Rosalind are regular churchgoers and good people in the true sense of the word. They knew the vicar who presided over their service very well and of course, this reflected in the genuinely heart-felt ceremony. Their church is St Johns in Hampton Wick in the borough of Richmond and then it was off to The Lensbury hotel in Teddington – just up the road, for the reception, where my brief was to stick around to capture the speeches, making my time with Rosalind and Simon around four hours in total.
All generations were represented at the wedding – Rosalind and Simon are both grandparents and wanted their grandchildren to really enjoy the day, so we got some great shots of all the littlies having a whale of a time. And, Great-Granny, Simon’s mum was the real matriarch, formidably at 96 leading the celebrations throughout the day.
A life well travelled, the table plan was named after all the cities that Rosalind and Simon had visited together – Berlin, Palermo, Berlin and so forth – a list that will only continue to grow as they can now check in as Mr & Mrs.
Congratulations Rosalind and Simon! And thank you for having me as your wedding photographer.
