…. so, down to the thriving artistic community that is Deptford for a pre-wedding photography shoot and getting-to-know-you session with illustrators Nana and John on their home territory.
A glorious mix of old and new – Victorian terraces rubbing shoulders with glass clad modernity and cottages with palaces, all set along the banks of the Thames.
Completely spoilt for choice of backgrounds for this engagement shoot, from this Patricio Forrester ‘His and Hers’ mural to the brickwork of the railway viaducts that crisscross this part of South London…
and on to ‘Love over Gold’ (how appropriate is that?) hidden in a back street on the way to Deptford Creek (Dire Straits performed their first gig in the Crossfields Estate just opposite the mural).
A brief stop at Deptford Creek – one time heart of shipbuilding on the Thames – so on to Greenwich, the Cutty Sark and the splendours of the old Royal Naval College!
Even more gems as we make our way back to Deptford High Street – lively as ever on a Sunday afternoon!
I can hardly wait for Nana and John’s midsummer Wedding in the magical setting of old farm buildings in the heart of the Sussex countryside!
