{Johanna & Rob} A Mid Summer English Garden Party Wedding


Johanna is from Frankfurt, Germany. Rob is from Surrey, England. Rob is an actor, Johanna is a stage manager and they met when Rob was cast in a play at the English Theatre Frankfurt – and found me after a dear friend of mine, who has ALSO appeared at the English Theatre, sent them my details – some things are just meant to be! As soon as I met Johanna and Rob I knew we were going to get on like a house on fire, they are kind, funny and madly in love. Their wedding day was a wonderful celebration of their love for each other – and their friends and families’ love for them. I don’t think I have ever heard such honest and sincere vows – and there is a distinct possibility that I had something in my eye during the speeches!! In fact, as I was editing this wedding the memories of the day came flooding back and I felt emotional all over again!

This wedding was really special as (like so many I shoot – and like my own!) it was all about families from two different cultures coming together and bringing their own traditions to the day. Johanna and Rob picked the most glorious July’s day to get married in the garden of Rob’s father’s home – one of the hottest of the year! Their outdoor ceremony was scorching and the bright direct sunlight certainly brought its own challenges for me – but I think we rocked it and the payoff was the most divine golden hour and sunset later in the day!

I hope you enjoy looking at these pictures as much as I enjoyed making them – and that the smiliest bride you have ever seen brings a smile to your face too!
