Hannah & Yohan had their first date 2 years after they met (thanks to their parents!). It was a very nervous Yohan who asked Hannah out for coffee, and the rest (as they say) is history. Their parents had been hinting and hinting (not so subtly I think!) for them to get together but after two years of persistence it finally paid off. Actually it was Hannah who says that when her parents finally stopped hinting, they went for coffee.
Knox Church is now open again and it's beautiful inside. They have the old pews, some still with dust from the rubble. It smells both old and new at the same time. It's roomy and lovely to shoot in too!
The day started at Yohan's flat where he and his two brothers David and Josh were also getting ready, along with another groomsman, Brian. Dad Steve was there with Yohan's mum and sister Chuana. These guys are big on family and big on love. It's awesome.
Then I was off to Rutherford Lodge where Hannah and her bridesmaids had just arrived from Soho where they'd just finished having hair and makup done. Absolutely stunning!
Hannah and her brother EJ, say a prayer before she walks down the aisle.
Yohan's sister Chuana, does a lovely reading and then both Yohan & Hannah's dads get up and sing - amazing!!! Very talented families.
I love the part of the ceremony, when the new bride and groom have just signed the register. The usually think they're out of the spotlight while their witnesses are signing it, but this is when some of my favourite images are made.
Yohan's two brothers, Josh and David - it's David's birthday - happy birthday David!!! You know you WILL be expected to remember their anniversary, right?
Yohan finds a quiet spot and goes through his speech. Love this shot (thanks for the heads up, Cat!).
Yohan's brother David, and Hannah's brother EJ kick off proceedings.
Hannah had put together this lovely slideshow, including photos of both of them from when they were kids, and also some I took from their engagement shoot.
The night ended with a lovely sunset and lots of love. All the best you guys, hope to see you really soon. x
