Hayley and Sam's Boho Wedding Previews | The Secret Garden, Kent | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

Oh Hayley and Sam, what an incredible couple!! You might remember their pre wedding session, which we photographed over the easter weekend with their lively pup, Quinn. Well, their wedding was just as incredible!

When Hayley’s mum first enquired with me about the couple’s wedding coverage, I loved the sound of their intimate victorian walled garden wedding venue. It was just absolutely stunning from the photos I’d seen online, and perfect for the small wedding they were planning. It was then just lovely when after a few weeks, an email landed in my inbox from Hayley herself, telling me that she and Sam wanted to book me! I was so elated. There was something about this wedding and the couple, and my instincts were right, as I am so glad to call them both friends now!

Anne and Charlie's Wedding Previews | Intimate Wedding at All Saint's Church, Maldon | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

Anne and Charlie’s wedding yesterday was just so wonderful, even if it was probably the most blustery wedding I have ever photographed!

I first met Anne and Charlie at John and Amy’s wedding at Tunnels Beaches last September, where they were guests. I actually remember them pulling me aside to ask if I would take a photograph of them together - I didn’t expect an email to land in my inbox from them just two months later asking me if I would photograph their wedding, what an honour!

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!

Classic Intimate English Wedding, Wivenhoe House and St Osyth | Sarah + Alex | Grace Elizabeth, Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer, Colchester, Essex

You know what, if I could shoot intimate garden weddings all of the time, I totally would, and this wedding is exactly why…

Sarah and Alex got in touch with me just ten days before their wedding day in October. Having wed in France in a beautiful chateau a few weeks prior, they planned an intimate re-run of their day, so that Alex’s grandmother would be able to attend (you’ll spot her as the smiley blonde lady in the blue dress in the photos later!) Straight off the bat, I thought that was just so kind and I absolutely said yes to doing their wedding (what a stroke of luck it was that I was free!)
