Their love may have first blossomed in Oxford, but Tessa and John were always destined to have a romantic London wedding, as it was in this city that their love story really unfolded. Meeting for dates on Albert Bridge, Saturday morning coffees at The Birdhouse cafe, and long walks through Battersea Park in the autumn sunshine…it is clear that this is a city close to their hearts, see their engagement session here if you don’t believe me! They also choose a London theme for their modern wedding stationery.
They first met during fresher’s week at Oxford University, when John won her over with his charming opening line: “Are you northern?” After a friendly nod and relieved smile from Tessa, they were soon inseparable and enjoyed their uni days together.
Both now enjoy very successful careers in London, and when John whisked Tessa to Paris last year, he proposed in the same quaint church her grandparents married in many years ago – like a true romantic.
Their wedding ceremony took place in Sacred Heart Church in Battersea, followed by a beautiful reception at one of Richmond’s best wedding venues, the chic and stylish Bingham Hotel which worked perfectly with their wine-themed celebration.
Congratulations Tessa and John, and thank you so, so much for choosing me as your wedding photographer – it was such a wonderful day!
“Siobhan captured us perfectly. Her beautiful photos shine with clarity, artistry, and intimacy. From the favourite places on our engagement shoot to the favourite moments of our wedding day, we couldn’t have hoped for more. Thank you!”
