Sunny Town Elopement at Colchester Castle, Colchester | Rhian and Ali | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding And Lifestyle Photographer

When an email from Rhian and Ali popped into my inbox just two months before they planned to hold their wedding, I knew from the first line of their email that they sounded pretty ace. ‘We've known each other for 8 years, been together for 4 years and engaged for 3 years. We got bored after Christmas and randomly decided to just book our wedding for April.’ I knew they sounded like my kind of people. I love that they were ‘bored’ enough to plan a wedding - how chill do they sound?!

Regularly, when I explain that I will need a little time in your day to get those beautiful couple photos you see across my website and my instagram, I often hear ‘Oh you won’t take us away for hours will you?’ or ‘We aren’t that fussed about couple photos… We were at a wedding recently where the couple disappeared with the videographer and photographer for two hours!

Tiffany and Joe's Boho Rainbow Colchester Castle Wedding | Grace Elizabeth | Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

It's always lovely when you get to photograph your clients twice, for two really important moments in their lives... Tiffany and Joe gave me both of those opportunities, and I'm so grateful. They first booked me last spring to photograph their little girl's newborn photos, which I absolutely loved doing (as it turned out, they're also a cat-crazy couple which meant the cats got involved in their shoot too - no complaints from me!) and they adored their photos so much, that they gave me the privilege of coming back to photograph their wedding photos just last month!
