When the Photographer becomes the Photographed | Couple's Session at the Natural History Museum, London | Grace Elizabeth, Essex Alternative Wedding Photographer

Gabrielle and I agreed to meet just under where Dippy the Dinosaur used to live (now replaced by Hope the Whale), and, despite us entering the museum from two different directions, and having never met before, as we are both around the 5ft tall mark, we managed to miraculously find one another!

When one of your oldest friends gets married | A boho wedding in North Devon | Grace Elizabeth - Essex, UK Alternative Wedding Photographer

From Josh's marvel-themed wedding cake, bow tie, and cufflinks, to flowers hand co-ordinated by her mum, sister and Bryony herself, to the most gorgeous boho gown I've laid eyes upon, to meeting up with old friends, to hopping over a high fence in her wedding dress and trekking in a local field for couple photos ten minutes before sunset, to the father of the bride being given shots (home made might I add!) to get through his speech, to the most wonderful father-daughter first dance followed by Bryony and Josh's first dance itself...

Fireplace Dance Theatre - Headshots with Charlotte | Potrait Sessions | Grace Elizabeth, Alternative Wedding Photographer Colchester, Essex
