Whilst I don’t feature them all that often, I still really enjoy showcasing London engagement shoots from time to time – they are still a joy to see a couple in love, captured by stunning photography and with the beautiful backdrops that London has to offer. This couple, Sarah and Gareth had a sweet day reminiscing about the early days of their relationship whilst wondering around some gorgeous spots by the river. Makes you forget just how wonderful it is to live in this city…
Sarah & Gareth are both originally from Wales but met whilst working at Ernst & Young in London. They are planning a sumptuous wedding in Wales from afar as they now live and work in Singapore. As they live abroad and are getting married in Wales they wanted to capture something of their relationship in London. So, with their photographer Sarah Gawler, they set about walking around their old haunts in Butlers Wharf and they reminisced about how they first got together (they were set up by her manager!).
They even went to The Harpy, an Edwardian customs and excise pontoon now used as a location house. Later in the day they headed into Greenwich – another part of London that they have fond memories of together. Soon after arriving the heavens opened, so they had to take shelter in the cloisters of The Queen’s House. The weather didn’t bother them, they were happily dancing about and having fun together.
Their photographer Sarah Gawler says, “We all have our own personal & sentimental maps of places we’ve spent time in so it’s such a privilege that in photographing a couple’s story like this you get to see what a place means to them too. Thank you Sarah & Gareth for sharing your stories with me, it was a most memorable afternoon in the sun and the rain ;)”.
Wishing the best of happiness for their wedding day and thanks to the very talented Sarah Gawler for sharing her beautiful work.
