Hannah and Michael's Dreamy Beach Pre Wedding Session at Cudmore Grove, Mersea | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding And Lifestyle Photographer


Strap yourselves in because this is one super beautiful pre-wedding session I am about to share with you with a super cute couple (and don’t even get me started on the rock, by which I mean Hannah’s gorgeous engagement ring!)

I met up with Hannah and Michael just last month for their pre wedding session down at my usual haunt of Cudmore Grove in Mersea. A pre wedding session is an hour long complementary engagement session I give to all of my wedding couples! Why? Because it’s so important to me that you feel comfortable working with me by the time your wedding comes around… and although tea and cake dates can help, there’s nothing quite like getting my couples in front of the lens!

Now, I know it’s a nerve-wracking experience, trust me, I’ve been in front of the lens with my long-term boyfriend a few times now, but pre wedding session with me are all about having a bit of fun before the seriousness of your wedding day comes around! They are fast becoming one of my favourite session types, because I love how every couple has such a different dynamic. Right down from their personalities to the clothes they choose to wear, I love the different vibes each couple gives off and we literally always end up laughing so much that our stomachs hurt!

Hannah and Michael were just a dream to work with and I really cannot wait until their wedding day. They were not only super stylish, but even though it was due to rain all day (and did a tiny bit during their session) they were up for anything! Hannah even took off her chunky boots for some photos and ran along the sand - she said ‘If it makes a good photo I’ll do it!’ I love couples who are up for just about any of my ridiculous ideas, including twirling one another around, despite the foot height difference between them!

So without further ado, here is what we got up to during their moody evening pre wedding session! Thank you to both of you for being such good sports, I truly adore your photos and cannot wait to document your wedding day!

Much love as always!
