Relaxed Woodland Pre Wedding Session in West Bergholt, Colchester, Essex | Emily and Dominic | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer


Emily and Dominic - what a lovely couple! We met up for the first time earlier this year over a hot chocolate in Ipswich. I remember the meeting quite vividly because not only did I get a bit lost trying to find the Costa in question (thank you satnav) but also because it was only about 4pm and was so cold, wet and dark. Chatting over our hot drinks about the plans for their July wedding day was so exciting, although it felt so far away at the time!

A few weeks later, they decided to go ahead with booking me (yay!), and this month we met up again for their pre wedding session in the local woodlands close by to where I live. Despite rescheduling because of torrential rain just a week prior, even come the day of the session things weren’t looking too promising… However, it finally worked out for us, even if there was a little rain earlier on in the day. I always say that some of the best sunshine comes after a rainstorm and this day was a prime example of that!

We spent a good hour or so exploring the woodlands and chatting about how the day was going to unfold. I honestly love a pre wedding session because it always feels like meeting up with two friends and creating beautiful images to go along with it too! They’re always so relaxed that it never feels like a photographer and two clients, it just feels like a lovely afternoon chatting, walking and photographing.

So, with just over a month to go now until the big day, here are the photos from Emily and Dominic’s super relaxed pre wedding session!
