In just under a year we will be shooting these guys on their wedding day, when they both said they would like their pre-wedding shoot to be this Autumn I must admit I was happy as I couldn’t wait to shoot them both. East Mersea was the location and what a perfect choice. A beautiful mix of woodland, meadow and of course the secluded beach all of which was blessed with beautiful light.
These two are full of laughter and giggles and in the short time we were there piggy back rides, skimming and a run for the sun all happened. Now the fact that we ended up on the beach and at one point a large rock over looking the coast was a little strange for Sarah because this is in fact the English version of the proposal.
Sarah and Steve first met in a bar for a mutual friends birthday, “I recognised all but one, and decided to introduce myself and get the nod off my friend whether he was a decent bloke or not.” With lots in common including being gym mad these two have even competed in bodybuilding and weightlifting competitions) there was a natural chemistry and spark immediately. Steve took a moment at the bar to make a bet with Sarah which would mean her having to kiss him if she lost and well lets just say the romance blossomed form there.
Fast forward two years and Steve had a plan up with sleeve. They were going on a family holiday Barbados whilst there Steven took Sarah for an early evening for a walk on the beach to watch the sunset, “we walked to a quieter part of the beach (much to my dismay, as we were walking further away from the rum shacks) we finally got to a secluded end and sat down on some rocks where he popped the question! Totally shocked and surprised I said yes!”
But that was not the only celebration, when they got back to the apartment to spread the news to Steven’s family, his sister Emma also got engaged that very moment we did, again watching the sunset on a different part of the beach! “So as you can imagine the rest of the holiday they celebrated with ridiculous amounts of meals out in every restaurant/ beach shack/ bar possible., was amazing.”
Soon we now find ourself in October 2017 just a few days short of a year until their big day. We had the pleasure of filming Steve’s sisters wedding this year and we cannot to film and photograph Steve and Sarah’s, but for now here is a little sneak peak of what we got up to on their pre-wedding shoot.
