Westward Ho! Beach Dual Family Session, North Devon | Grace Elizabeth | Colchester, Essex, Devon, Suffolk and Norfolk Alternative Wedding and Family Photographer


Going back to North Devon, where I spent many of my teenage years, means catching up with old school friends. In April, I had the chance to go back to Devon to photograph Grace and Sam’s wedding… 

By the way, if you’re organising a wedding in Devon, do get in touch as I’ve waived all of my travel and accommodation fees for Devon weddings in 2020 and 2021 in a bid to be down at the coast more!

Going back down to Devon wasn’t all work though, and, since two of my best friends have little ones, it meant meeting up with them for beach days with the kids!

When I met up with my friends Hannah and Lauren, we decided to head to Westward Ho! Beach in North Devon (yes, it is the only place in the UK that grammatically has an exclamation point after it!) After coaxing some horses out of the way, one of which was literally twice my height (must be to do with the horse jacket I had on!) so that we could actually drive down the lane to the beach, we had the most fab time in the sunshine letting the kids run off some steam. I took a totally lifestyle approach for these photos, no posing involved at all, which was so different for me, as I usually shoot a mix of posed and candid, but I adored the photos that resulted!

It was so lovely meeting up with Hannah and Lauren, and it always amazes me how quickly the little ones are growing up! Being a photographer is such a rewarding job, because it means you get to document your friend’s kids growing up so that they’ll always have photos to treasure!

If you’d like to book a family session, do get in touch! I am regularly in North Devon too so I can always fit you in!

As always too, if you’d like to get the latest news and special offers, you can join my newsletter here!

Much love as always!
