Roslin Hotel Wedding Reception for Irene & John

Roslin Hotel Wedding Southend

 

The most bittersweet of posts. I first met Irene a number of years ago when I photographed her daughter Sue’s wedding, so I was over the moon when she asked me all this time later if I would photograph her own marriage to John. When I met with them at the start of the year John had been diagnosed with cancer, but was undergoing treatment and things were positive. That changed just a couple of weeks before the wedding and for everyone there it was the most emotional day, but mostly one of happiness, joy, laughter and love.

We lost John just a few short weeks later.

This is one of Irene’s favourite photographs and is part of the cover on a book that we have just made. This is the “Just One”, taken on the beach in front of the Roslin Hotel in Southend, where they held their wedding reception. I will write a full post soon, because the easiest way to keep any memories alive is to see photographs and our memories of John deserve to live forever xx
