Philippa and Mark's Brighton Beach Pre Wedding Session | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer


Philippa and Mark are just the sweetest couple! They enquired super excitedly a few months ago about booking their wedding coverage with me. When I mentioned the idea of them having a pre wedding session, they jumped at the chance, and already had the perfect location to hand: Brighton; where they met at university and got engaged!

I had only been to Brighton once, and it was simply to go to a camera shop, so the idea of going back was really exciting for me, especially as we managed to combine the shoot with my birthday weekend, meaning I made a day out of it, too!

I spent the majority of the day exploring the streets with my mum, visiting the plentiful vintage and second hand shops, munching on vegan food and just generally spending the day out in the sunshine. It was lovely spending time with my mum, as it happens so rarely these days, and so lovely to finish the day off with photographing the lovely Philippa and Mark!

Of course, first of all we headed to the beach for some photos, and then we just had to get one in front of the Brighton pier sign, as it was just buzzing with people! When I then mentioned the possibility of getting on some of the rides on the pier for a few photos, I was super surprised to hear how up for it they both were. Philippa even suggested getting on the log flume, although considering she mentioned it about ten minutes into their shoot, we decided maybe it wasn’t the best idea, even if we were ‘doin’ it for the gram.’ However, we did go on the merry go round, and explored the fun side of the beach activities, and then we headed back into the town for a few walks past the museum and along the cobblestone roads.

It was a fantastic day out, as proven by the sunburn I ended up with, and was such a lovely place to spread my creative wings.

Thank you Philippa, Mark, and of course my lovely mum who fourth wheeled us all day, I am now counting down to your wedding!
