Lighthouse Wedding overlooking the Seven Sisters Cliffs | Haley & Keaton

Orange Sunrise at Beachy Head by Elisha Braithwaite Photography

My close friends Haley and Keaton celebrated their wedding at the Belle Tout Lighthouse, a lovely bed and breakfast on the southern coast of England. It overlooks the chalky Seven Sisters cliffs and sits close enough to the cliff side that it will soon erode away and need to be relocated. But for now, these two and a handful of loved ones were able to celebrate in a country that they hold close to their hearts.

Haley and Keaton found the Belle Tout Lighthouse by chance while searching for the best bed and breakfasts in the world. They have a deep love for England so the lighthouse just made sense. It had just enough rooms to comfortably house them, their rad parents, myself and a couple of influential friends. To say I’m honored to have been invited along is a total understatement. I’m incredibly grateful for the chance to celebrate my friends marriage and to have vacationed so intimately with them for the entire week. Most importantly though I’m just thrilled to see them married in a way that felt right for them.

The wedding itself was gorgeous. Gusty winds blew her friends gown as she radiantly stood before us all and married them. They recited their own vows and loved ones warmed their rings, wishing them luck and sending prayers their way. They ended the evening over fantastic food and drinks at a local pub before heading back to the lighthouse where we stayed up well past 2am telling stories about them.

Hey friends – you were an absolute dream. I can’t thank you enough for bringing me along to a gorgeous country and for allowing me to be among those who witnessed your marriage. Okay enough of me. Scroll on down and see all the love.

Sara and David’s Intimate Wedding at White Memorial Chapel, Utahwedding

Sara and David were married on a snowy Saturday in February at the White Memorial Chapel in Salt Lake City, Utah. What inspired me most about them was just how in tune they were with one another on their wedding plans. What mattered to them most was keeping their day simple and centered around what was absolutely necessary. And for them that was to have close loved ones, good food and to simply be married. Their day was honestly a true reflection of them and it was beautiful.

They began the day getting ready in their home in the Salt Lake City avenues. The morning was slow as they shoveled the walk, talked in the living room and eventually helped one another get ready. Sara did her own hair and makeup in a matter of minutes, they laced up their boots and began their walk across the hill to Capitol Hill.

Once we arrived at the White Memorial Chapel we took some time for portraits outside in the snow until loved ones started to arrive. Their ceremony was one of my favorite parts of the day. They casually walked down the aisle without making it too formal, and before exchanging vows they invited a few loved ones to share words of love and support for them. It was really neat seeing how they tailored a wedding ceremony to fit what was important to them.

After their ceremony the night eventually ended over dinner at the Red Iguana II just west of downtown. They had great food and drinks and even the live band came over and performed for them. Overall it was such a beautifully intimate day that I’m so fortunate to have seen so closely. I can’t thank you both enough for having me there! Honestly the emotions I experienced have inspired some ideas for what I may do on my own wedding one day.

xo, elisha
