Ashley and Ray celebrate their civil partnership in January at the prestigious Mayfair Hotel in Piccadilly, London. In the meantime a couple of weekends ago,I met up with them in their hometown of Southend-on-Sea to get some rockin’ pre-wedding images. They had some locations in mind and also brought along some props - including an accordian, a mandolin, a ukelele and….a painting. You’ll understand when you see the photos!
After loads of shots on the beach, we made our way to their local pub, where I did some off-camera flash shots, which, with the decor of the pub and what the girls were wearing, makes the resulting images look almost Victorian! Love it!
