We're already off to a very busy start this year! Its been ages since we last blogged so we thought we would share a few of our favourite images we've taken so far. We're already blown away with how amazing our brides and grooms and their guest have been! We've had awesome weddings filled with love, fun, crazy karaoke, wedding rounders and a bit of dance floor craziness! We can't wait to share all of the full blogs with you, until then here are some of our highlights.
How To Feel Sexy As F*ck
Feeling sexy and loving the skin you’re in is a hard, long and often bumpy journey for anyone who has a body (so all of us). We’re constantly surrounded by media and people who say that we could be happy if only we had that new product or wore different clothing or lost that weight you’ve been carrying around since you found out about how good cake is. In this kind of world, loving yourself is a rebellious act and one I am still learning how to do.
I began to feel sexy when I finally bought underwear that fitted me properly. Instead of trying to squeeze myself into something just because I thought I should be that size, I bought the correct size, looked in the mirror and looked fabulous. From there, I decided to actually look at myself, see me for how I was, not how I wanted to be, not what I thought I should look like and not ignoring the parts I hated and embraced myself. I accepted me for me, and with that acceptance came an overwhelming feeling of relief. I had tricked myself to feel sexy all with the power of my mind. I had performed a magic act. My way of thinking had evolved, matured if you will, and I now know that my body is a pretty sexy, feminine and beautiful thing, and even more so because it is mine.
Take small steps to begin liking yourself if you want. One day you may find out, actually, you have beautiful colour eyes, or your hands look like pianists’ hands. Or, to be honest, your ankles aren’t really that bad, or that crooked smile you have is really quite lovely. I don’t mind how long you take, as long as you get there. I would love all the women of the world to feel beautiful and confident in their skin, just as I do in mine. So be brave and love yourself, and I hope my photos inspire you to tell be kind and proud of your body.

It’s fair to say that the days leading up to any wedding are anything but ordinary. So imagine if that wedding involved a start time of 7.30am, a ceremony on the Cutty Sark, trainers, a running wedding dress and 26.2 miles of running just a few hours later. It’s certainly an unusual wedding day schedule. But, when you meet bride Jackie – which we did for her final dress fitting – it doesn’t take long to see why it’s the only day she’d want to plan.
Badass boudoir is new to Bai & Elle and it’s something I’m very excited and passionate about! I love nothing more than making people feel beautiful and empowered. To me boudoir is so much more than women in pretty lingerie sets and it’s also not just for women of a certain look, size or age. It’s all about stepping out your comfort zone, accepting yourself as you are inside and out and realising that’s enough and owning the hell out of it, whilst looking like a totally sexy badass babe!
Badass boudoir is going to be done a little different to everything else. I’ll only be offering it a couple times throughout the year, right now we have our first ever event on Sunday 7th May at a quirky east London studio.

First to receive the full Badass Boudoir treatment is the gorgeous Katjia! I don’t know about you but I have some serious hair envy going on right now, her gorgeous red locks are, AMAZING!! The fabulous hair and make up godess Sarah Mcwainlian was there to add the finishing touches, making sure Katjia looked flawless! I think people are at their most beautiful when their relaxed, enjoying themselves and lost in the moment and it was no different with this red-headed beauty. We chatted, got a little silly and captured some real soft and sexy moments.
