“James photographed our wedding back in July 2019. From the first time I spoke to James on the phone I knew he was the photographer for us, we got on like a house on fire! He slotted in beautifully with our family and friends and quickly proved our most popular guest. He took beautiful natural photos and was very un-intrusive, which was exactly what we wanted. I’ve been asked for his details by several of my wedding guests since the big day!”- Rosa & Tom
As a groom, imagine the morning of your wedding day being surrounded by your best mates, in your childhood home and then heading down to the local for a quick pint, looking forward to marrying your best friend and love of your life. It doesn’t get much better than that! Hold the whole celebration in Tall Johns House in Wales and you’re in for a pretty perfect day.
My whole weekend surrounding Rosa and Tom’s wedding was amazing. Is Wales beautiful or what?! I loved photographing Rosa and Tom and I was so impressed that their smiles only seemed to get bigger throughout the day- they must have had jaw ache the next day! Apart from a few emotional moments leading up to the ceremony, it was grins and laughter all day. And we can forgive wedding morning emotions- they get to the best of us!
A Tall Johns House Wedding
Once we got to this incredible venue, all set up for the ceremony in the garden, the day was off and promised not to stop until the small hours. The ceremony was beautifully unique with Pip, Rosa and Tom’s beloved dog, taking centre stage as she was escorted down the aisle by her nephew. Rosa also asked both her Mum and her Dad to walk her down the aisle. It’s moments like these that make wedding infinitely special.
After the ceremony, it was onto the reception. Many more laughs were to be had, but Rosa’s sister brought that wedding day emotion right back to the surface. It was such a special sisterly moment. However, there was no more time for tears once the band got started in the evening! Wow! Tom and Rosa know how to get a party going- it is honesty one of the wildest and most fun wedding parties I have ever seen! And to top it off, we wrapped up the day with a solitary moment between Rosa and Tom, cuddled up, having a moment together after what I’m sure was the best day of their lives.
The beauty of getting married in Tall Johns House is that you can host your whole wedding there and it has everything you could possibly need. We took all of the couple portraits in the grounds and a neighbouring field, which created the perfect backdrop. And not that Tall Johns House really needs any additions but Rosa and Tom added their own boho twist to the day by adding a plethora of pom-poms and colour. Everything came together and made for some amazing moments which I loved photographing.
