Mel and Rocky's Intimate Forest Wedding Previews | Narborough Hall Gardens, Norfolk | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

I remember Mel’s initial enquiry with me so vividly. I was sat at the day job on a break when her email popped up on my laptop. I was on the cusp of quitting my day job to go full time with photography, and Mel’s enquiry was one of the very first ones I had received before I went fully fledged. It was the push I needed to say ‘YES!’ to my dreams and to go for it. Safe to say, this last year has been the most incredible whirlwind and there’s no stopping!

Best of 2018 | Grace Elizabeth | Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

What an absolute year 2018 was. It was the year I went from doing photography on the side, to going fully self employed, and for that, I am so very grateful. 2018 gave me the opportunity to photograph the most amazing weddings and lifestyle sessions, and to meet so many amazing people. It was a year full of love, I started the #GoldDustProject, I photographed quite a few charity events and I documented a few eco friendly vegan events too. So here it is, a round up of the best moments of 2018!

Jess and Tom's Boho DIY Norfolk Countryside Wedding | Grace Elizabeth | Alternative Wedding Photographer, Colchester, Essex

Fast forward to June, and oh my goodness I just don't have enough words to describe how amazing their wedding was! From groom prep with the guys who were totally laid back and couldn't stop laughing, to bridal prep with the girls (I do love this part - all the makeup, hair, dresses and jewels get my creative mind buzzing!), to the beautiful, touching ceremony itself at their local Kingdom Hall, to the abundance of lovely family and friends who posed for group shots, to Jess and Tom themselves, who were absolute models during their couple session (the connection they have exceeds something way beyond their years) to the amazing Thai food, to the tear-jerking, belly-laughing speeches, and finally their sweet first dance. ALL of it was perfection.

A cocktail evening at Liberty House | Business Branding Photography | Grace Elizabeth, Alternative Wedding Photographer, Colchester, Essex

A beautifully modern renovated 17th-century barn, set in the gorgeous Suffolk countryside, this place is both picturesque and the perfect location to throw a party. With the ability to accommodate twenty people in eight luxurious bedrooms, and six bathrooms (five en-suite) each hand decorated with interior design even Lawrence Llewellyn Bowen would be envious of, not to mention an indoor swimming pool and outdoor hot tub, Liberty House Luxury Retreat is truly the place to relax with a glass of champagne!
