Let's talk bridal boudoir! With lingerie designer, Ellice Lydia | Grace Elizabeth, Alternative Wedding Photographer, Colchester, Essex
Where do I begin? Almost every girl loves pretty lingerie, right? But bralets are usually reserved for members of the itty-bitty-titty-commitee, aren't they? Well, not with Ellice Lydia; her bespoke pieces are for people of all shapes and sizes!
I have loved Ellice's bespoke lingerie products for what feels like an eternity. I think I bought my first piece of lingerie from her near enough when she first opened up her shop, as I came across her designs whilst browsing on instagram. Fast forward a few bralet purchases later and about a year or so of continually liking and commenting on her instagram, and up came the opportunity to shoot her lingerie! It was a dream come true for me, as commercial lingerie work and boudoir photography are two things I have really wanted to photograph more, it's just that for many of my clients (you guys reading this), you don't know that it's something I would be interested in photographing for you until you see it on your newsfeeds! So yes, if you'd like a boudoir shoot, I am game, and of course I can recommend the most wonderful lingerie maker (and may already have to a lot of friends!) ;)
Anyway, the story continues. Ellice invited me up to her Norwich-based studio, along with her beautiful model Hannah, also Miss Norfolk, for a day of shooting her entirely new bridal collection. Oh yes, B-R-I-D-A-L. For all you brides out of there, Ellice Lydia is your one stop shop for all things lingerie (she also does loungewear amongst other collections!) My goodness, it was such a wonderful day (full of #girlpower)
I'll let the photos speak for themselves now, I think!
