Such an adorable engagement shoot on the blog today. Gorgeous photography and a riot of colour. I think everyone loves a seaside visit? The smell, the fish and chips, the cockles in little pots, the slot machines, the donkeys and oh the lights! Can you tell I spent my summers on the costa del Lincolnshire? Hope you enjoy. Michael and I are filming the next YouTube video this evening. Excited right?
