Karen And Tony's DIY Rustic Wedding At Blackthorpe Barn, Suffolk | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

Karen and Tony wed yesterday in what was one of the windiest wedding days I think I have EVER photographed! Hair was flying everywhere, guests were almost being blown into the next county, and I almost lost my footing more times than I care to have counted… but it didn’t stop them, and they had the most fantastic wedding day at Blackthorpe Barn in Suffolk!

Hannah and Anthony's Intimate Retro DIY Seaside Wedding At Thorpeness Golf Club And Hotel | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding And Lifestyle Photographer

What a jolly day this Saturday’s wedding was at Thorpeness Golf Club and Hotel!

Oh Hannah and Anthony, what wonderful friends I have found in you both (and of course your pup Wally!) over these past few months! From our very first meeting where you put on a surprise vegan feast for me at your home (how amazing you are!!) and we spent over two hours chatting about your wedding (but truthfully mostly about dogs, vegan food, art, decor and finding out how similar we are in general) to yesterday… Which was the day of your gorgeous, intimate and absolutely non traditional wedding day, which has left my cheeks hurting from smiling so much!

Lizzie and Faz's Asian Fusion Wedding Previews At Fennes | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding And Lifestyle Photographer

One day. Two weddings. Two outfits. One incredible couple…

Lizzie and Faz wed yesterday (or rather, wed twice!) at the gorgeous Fennes. Merging two families together from two very different cultures was just an incredible thing to witness and I feel privileged to have been a part of such an important day for them. To see all of the intricate details and effort that had been put into sharing aspects of both of their backgrounds really made the day so absolutely special, not to mention they absolutely pulled it off!

Emily and Dominic's Rainy Suffolk Barn Wedding with an Irish Twist | Barrandov Opera House | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

‘Get to work and work hard today’ my astrology app told me yesterday morning. How accurate that would be, as I’d find out!

Everyone has the worry of rain on their wedding day (whether they actually do, or just because Alanis Morissette made a song about it, who knows!), but I like to think of it as confetti from the sky. A little good luck, before you tie the knot (the idea being that rain creates a knot impossible to ever untie.) But you know what? A rainy wedding day can be a lot of fun, if you embrace it, and Emily and Dom did just that.

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!

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.
