Good morning lovelies! Have you had thunderstorms? We’re still waiting up here on the coast but I hear it’s been quite exciting in some parts of the country overnight… do send it my way, won’t you? I love lightning!

Today’s wedding is beautiful, and intimate – with only closest friends and family attending, and a wonderfully relaxed vibe. Guests were seated on armchairs for the ceremony, and the vibe was beautifully boho with a flavour of spring. I’ve been wondering if smaller weddings are set to become more popular in years to come… and Chloe and Michael’s day couldn’t be a more perfect example of an intimate wedding.

The bride is absolutely stunning in a San Patrick gown, with a full lace back. I adore her boho look and the flowers in her hair… isn’t she beautiful?

With love,

How did you choose your photographer?

I found Grace through recommendation, of both another photographer and one of Michael’s work colleagues who had their wedding photographed by her.
Once we’d had a browse through her website and spoken to her we knew she was the right photographer for us!


I spotted this gorgeous pair on instagram and they made me so happy: their sense of being blissfully wrapped up in each other, their beaming smiles… right now, love like this is EVERYTHING. There’s something serendipitous about all of this. Keyanna and Lawrence live in Canada, but Lawrence was born in Ipswich and they came to the UK for Christmas… and happily for everyone, they got in touch with Grace (having never met before) and arranged this photoshoot. The result: wonderfully fun, authentic, romantic images I just know they’ll treasure for a lifetime.

Huge thanks to Grace Elizabeth for sharing her beautiful photos, and to lovely Keyanna for telling me a little about their engagement shoot experience!

Keyanna told me a little about how wonderful it was to be there:

“Back when we decided we’d like to have engagement photos done in England, and I began searching #suffolkphotographers on Instagram all the way from Canada, I never thought I’d find someone we’d connect with so well. Booking a photographer from across the world seemed like a bit of a risk. But I loved Grace’s online presence and felt like she’d be the type of person I’d want to be friends with, so we took the risk!


These two are the most adorable couple – beautiful and happy on their wedding day. Philippa is stunning in her 1920s style dress – and wonderfully honest about her experience of finding ‘the one’ when it comes to dress shopping. Their photographer was our lovely friend Grace Elizabeth, whose images are simply breathtaking. You will LOVE this! Have a magical weekend everyone! xxx

Mark & Philippa's joyful Holmewood Hall wedding, with Grace Elizabeth (5)

How did you choose your photographer?

Philippa’s sister-in-law is a photographer so she helped us understand what we were looking for. She managed to get us a shortlist of 20 or so photographers who were available on our Wedding Day which we went through and picked our favourites. Grace Elizabeth was the first one we got in touch with and within a couple of hours we’d spoken on the phone, decided she was definitely the one for us and booked her!

This week has just flown by! I hope you’ve had a lovely one and are all ready for the weekend. Before we kick off our work gear I have one more wedding to share with you (and watch out for some fabulous advice features over the weekend too!). Today we join gorgeous couple Sarah & Alex for their Essex wedding at St Osyth church with a reception in Alex’s grandmother’s back garden! The bouquet by Miss Fleur Floral Design will make you fall-over-swoon and the images are just soooo beautiful! They’re by our lovely friend and English Wedding member Grace Elizabeth, who is based in Colchester.

The blue stone from Alex’s grandmother’s ring which you’ll see in the photos was actually the centrepiece for Sarah’s second engagement ring, so it’s become something of a family heirloom – not to mention totally stunning too! Theirs was a beautiful, small wedding, and in no way a big affair.
