A beautiful coastal bridal photoshoot, with Ross Willsher Photography

Published by Claire Gould on

There’s something wonderfully free-spirited about the coast, and I’ve always been a sucker for a coastal inspired wedding or photoshoot. This is my new favourite. A lovely collaboration between one of my favourite wedding photographers Ross Willsher, and Emma at Pretty Faces Makeup.

We feel it’s important to say that weddings are for everyone, and the media should reflect far, far more diversity in its representation of weddings!

Here’s a small step – I would love for it to be the first of many – with Karen as our beautiful bride and a super team of Essex / Suffolk wedding creatives!

“Emma Quinn (Pretty Faces Makeup) and I (Ross Willsher Photography) wanted to capture the beauty of the North Essex and Suffolk coast and produce a shoot that incorporated lots of rugged textures and natural tones – a world away from some of the stereotypical East Anglian wedding looks.

We are also passionate about celebrating brides of all ages and deliberately worked with a more mature model to showcase how beauty and love is ageless.

Debbie did a wonderful job with the hair; giving it structure and texture but also allowing it a lot of movement; the windy conditions actually worked in our favour for this.

Mel’s flowers complimented the natural tones of the beach and the ribbon floating in the wind created a beautiful feeling of movement and energy.”
