A selection of wedding photographs taken at RSA House by London wedding photographer, Jay Rowden

Jo & Nick’s gorgeous wedding at RSA House will be remembered for many reasons. Undoubtedly the wedding will be remembered for the heat, as the thermometer hit 30c in London, making it the hottest day of the year so far. It was sweltering! The wedding will also be remembered most notably by bridesmaid Sarah’s (Jo’s sister) for her dress disaster! Poor thing. Just as Sarah was about to step into her bridesmaid dress the zip broke – literally moments before bride Jo and all her bridesmaids were due to leave Highgate for RSA House. Crisis was averted thankfully due to Sarah hot-footing it to an alteration shop around the corner where a new zip was very quickly fitted into the bridesmaid dress. Phew. This wedding will also be remembered for the four fantastic speeches from Jo’s father Kit Free, groom Nick as well as Nick’s two best men, Matthew Kennedy and Petros Kartelas. The wedding will definitely be remembered for Jo’s dress – wow! Bride Jo looked stunning in a delicate Ian Stuart creation which gathered at the hip and was finished off with a clutch of bewitching handmade roses at the hip. This wedding dress designer really understands the female form. Jo’s bridesmaids complimented beautifully in their Coast frocks. Nick very much held his own in a beautifully cut Ted Baker suit and shoes. One of the defining memories of Jo and Nick’s wedding day for me would be witnessing some incredible Greek dancing from best man Petros. I was exhausted simply watching Petros bust those moves!! A truly epic day with dripping sunshine and love free flowing all day and night. Before I go, I thought it might be nice to share one of the readings which was read to us by Georgia Littlejohn. The reading is actually a Paul McCartney song, Calico Skies, taken from the 1997 album Flaming Pie. This was a new wedding reading for me and one which really struck a chord.

It was written that I would love you
From the moment I opened my eyes
And the morning when I first saw you
Gave me life under calico skies.

I will hold you for as long as you like
I’ll hold you for the rest of my life

Always looking for ways to love you
Never failing to fight at your side
While the angels of love protect us
From the innermost secrets we hide

I’ll hold you for as long as you like
I’ll hold you for the rest of my life

Long live all of us crazy soldiers
Who were born under calico skies
May we never be called to handle
All the weapons of war we despise

I’ll hold you for as long as you like
I’ll hold you for the rest of my life
I’ll hold you for as long as you like
I’ll love you for the rest of my…
For the rest of my life

Wedding Photography Gosfield Hall


Like any couple we found planning our wedding both enjoyable yet a little stressful at times! For us getting the perfect photographer was one of the top things on our list. Jay was recommended to us by our venue and when we looked on his website we loved what we were seeing. We met up with Jay and straight away knew he was the guy for us!!

On the wedding day Jay just mixed in with the crowd, we never felt like we had a camera following us around, he made us and all our guests feel very relaxed around the camera!

Jay- we want to thank you for capturing our day, the photographs are perfect and are exactly what we were hoping for (and more!). Many people who were at the wedding have told us how impressed they were with you, so easy going and they loved having a chat with you! Thank you again, you really have given us the greatest gift that we will treasure forever and which will be enjoyed for years to come.

If you want a photographer to capture your day perfectly look no further! We will definitely be recommending you Jay to anyone and everyone who even mentions the word ‘photographer!

Thank you so much,

Jo and Nick xx
