Sassi Holford new collection launch event at RSA House

Central London venue RSA House was chosen by bridal designer Sassi Holford as the setting for the launch her new 2020 Be Enamoured dress collection. I was asked by RSA House to photograph the event for them. I love working at this venue to was thrilled to do their event photography.

RSA House is licensed to hold ceremonies in a range of spaces, allowing for both intimate gatherings and larger ceremonies of up to 200 guests. The Great Room offers a spectacular setting where natural light from the domed glass ceiling illuminates famous historical paintings dating back to 1774. The Benjamin Franklin Room is a spacious and elegant room that features a contemporary chandelier, original Adam fireplaces and a large window running the length of the room. There’s also a hidden gem – the Vaults, which boast dramatically exposed brickwork and snug alcoves. Once used as riverfront warehouses, today they are an incredible space for a party.

The event started with cocktails and canapes in the Benjamin Franklin room, followed by the runway show in the amazing Great Room. Once the show was finished the guests made their way down to the vaults for drinks, entertainment and the most spectacular dessert table. It was a wonderful evening and a real pleasure to be a part of. Especially as I got to work with so many amazing suppliers who were involved in bringing everything together. Event photography is very similar to the work I do when photographing weddings. It’s important to capture the vibe of the evening, the details and location as well as the guests.

RSA House is an award-winning venue and it’s easy to see why. You can find out more about RSA House here and check out Sassi Holford’s 2020 collection here.
