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!)

Chara and Neil's Pre Wedding Session At Home With Cats and At Coalhouse Fort, Tilbury | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding And Lifestyle Photographer

When Chara and Neil booked me back in February, it wasn’t long before I realised via instagram that the couple were self-acclaimed crazy cat parents. Their eldest cat, a Silver Spotted British Shorthair called Albus Dumblepaw (yes, really, he even has his own instagram account!) was the centre of their world, so naturally it wasn’t long before I had to follow his account to see his escapades! But they decided that one cat wasn’t enough, so just a few weeks ago, they introduced little Delilah, a Blue British Shorthair kitten into their home! Do you remember the McVities biscuit adverts where the grey fluffy kittens crawl out of the biscuit packet? Well, Delilah is actually related to those cats!

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!

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!

Urban Pre Wedding Session in London's East End | Natalie and John | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

‘A shoot in London’ you say?! ‘Grace never shoots in London!’ Well on this occasion, I did indeed do a shoot in London - because after all, a sign above my desk says ‘Be afraid. Do it anyway!’ and I am using that as my mantra for 2019!

Laughter-Filled Couple Session | Cudmore Grove Beach, Mersea | Katrina and Jim | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding And Lifestyle Photographer

I am not quite sure you’ll ever find another couple who laugh their way through their couple session quite as much as Katrina and Jim did here. These two were so much fun that even my cheeks hurt from smiling and laughing so much when we finished their photos and got back to the car park.

Cudmore Grove Beach Pre Wedding Session (With A Dog!) | Hayley and Sam | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex, Alternative Wedding And Lifestyle Photographer

Hayley and Sam were absolute stars when it came to doing their pre wedding session on a baking hot Bank Holiday Monday in the middle of an extremely busy beach! But these two shy lovebirds didn’t let that bother them, and we had a whale of a time frolicking down on Cudmore Grove’s beach front amongst passers-by definitely wondering what we were doing, and definitely eyeing up Hayley’s beautiful (not to mention on-brand) golden gown! (Ladies, it’s from New Look if you’re wondering - I just had to ask!)

What to Wear For Your Pre-Wedding or Engagement Session | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

I know what it’s like planning an outfit… I can’t even plan one on a daily basis, let alone for a special occasion like your pre-wedding session photos or your engagement session photos! As a result, I’ve decided to put together a bit of a guide / my top five go-to tips of what you could look to wear, what you should avoid, and how to feel your best self! Oh, and this guide is based not only on what my past clients have worn, but what I’ve worn to my own couple sessions with my boyfriend. I’ll include photos of how we co-ordinated our wardrobes for the day, so I totally know how you feel, trust me!
