Emma & Mike are just a delight, I can’t tell you how excited I was when Emma got out of her car in full 50s glamour! Bare in mind it was about 11am on a Sunday and she looked absolutely stunning. I loved how much thought and effort went into the planning of their pre-shoot, from sourcing the dress on Ebay, then customising it by adding a petticoat and then matching her Vivienne Westwood shoes with the red and green theme! Emma’s sister did her hair and makeup and as for Mike, well he just looked very handsome in his co-ordinated shirt and jeans! We met first at Le Petite Petanque, where Emma & Mike had lunch on the day that Mike proposed! Just the prettiest tea room and the staff were so great about letting us photograph there. We had a little wander around the garden areas, had some fun at the fair, before heading to the beach, a real treat for me as I’ve never been to Southend before. Can’t wait for the wedding itself!
