One of my favourite things about this job is the glorious people I get to meet, Alice ( and her now husband Grant ) were two of these. I met Alice and Grant last year when they booked me for their wedding at The Clock Barn. Alice quickly decided a Bridal Boudoir session would be perfect for her and so we arranged it for a few months before the big day.
It was so lovely spending a bit more time with Alice before the big day, and the images we created were just amazing! So it is with very great pleasure that I present to you a selection of Alice’s images, and an interview with the leading lady herself.

Tell us about the lingerie you brought to your session? I chose underwear that accentuated my chest and drew attention away from areas I was more self conscious of. I chose a body, babydoll and a cami paired with hold ups and black heels
Tell us about your shoot experience? The shoot was amazing, Becky makes you feel comfortable as soon as you arrive! Having your hair and make up done makes you feel so glamorous and really adds to the experience.
