I’ll see you then
As the dawn birds sing
On a cold and misty morning
By the Albert Bridge
(Misty morning, Albert Bridge by The Pogues)
They walked across Albert Bridge on their first date.
For Tessa and John, there is a strong connection to this place and it plays a central part in their love story.
They have lived a stone’s throw away from it over the last few years, and have spent many happy moments sitting in cafes and getting to know each other in Battersea, Chelsea, and its surrounding areas. As they embark on the next chapter of their lives together, it seemed apt to give the backdrop to their romance a proper send off. Before the summer ends, they will celebrate their marriage in this part of London, then move to pastures anew for their second act.
Albert Bridge is one of the finest bridges on the river Thames; I find it very romantic, and I always think of that Pogues song.
We took a little stroll across it together one sweltering afternoon in June for a fun engagement session, and gave it one last kiss goodbye.
Looking forward to being your wedding photographer soon, Tessa and John!
