Gemma and James met on beach many years ago so what better way to capture their love on film than by a Coastal Engagement Shoot and a saunter near the water.
Images of the day were captured by Sarah Morris Photography.
Sarah Morris is an incredible Photographer based in London specialising in Portrait, Celebration and Wedding Photography.
Sarah says of her work, “I love the weird and the wonderful, the simple and the sane. I am inspired by those around me and try to capture their essence in my work.”
“I am as comfortable working with dizzying Burlesque dancers as I am with energetic toddlers….as indeed an appealing brick wall should it catch my eye.”
Gemma, the lovely Bride to be shares their love story, “I was 14 and I was walking along the beach with my friends and all of a sudden I cut my foot open on some glass.”
“This gorgeous young man who was working as a student activity leader came lent down and offered me a plaster, then he was gone.”
“I day dreamed about him for weeks, days and years passed, I moved to London and James moved to Bournemouth.”
“Then 11 years later we literally bumped in to one another in Bohemia (a night club in Torquay).”
“It was love at first sight and we went on to have a whirlwind romance.”
“We saw shooting stars, spent each night in a different hotel on little adventures, learning all about swans and their meaning, and fell deeply in love (our parents having the same names is rather odd… Haha).”
“James nicknamed me GK because his sister is called Gemma… And that has stuck with me, infact he never calls me Gemma, I’m his GK.”
“We travelled the world in 2008, and shortly after we returned we fell pregnant with our little boy Toby James.”
” James proposed on my 30th birthday in Dartmouth by the River Dart where 2 swans had rested for the night.”
“We marry on the 20th July this year.”
Thank you so much to Sarah for sharing this gorgeous coastal engagement shoot.
Such beautiful views and what better place to capture new memories than by reminiscing of old ones.
Also thanks to Gemma and James for sharing their story…so romantic and which proves that love finds away even years later if its meant to be.
