Whilst many brides and grooms opt for larger ceremonies, surrounded by friends and family, there’s a growing trend for couples to elope and where better to do so than Cornwall?
We are an established team of Cornwall elopement photographers and videographers and here are the reasons why we think you should choose Cornwall as your elopement/micro/intimate wedding destination….
Not only are there miles of stunning coastline to explore, but more venues than ever are offering bespoke collections for couples looking for a more intimate start to their marriage.
We have to admit that elopements in Cornwall are some of our favourite ceremonies to photograph as they are so personal and so full of love. They also inevitably are more relaxed as everything is focused solely on the bride and groom.
Intimate, meaningful, individual and personal….
There are several reasons why our couples tell us they chose to elope in Cornwall including:
- Having the wedding that they really wanted
- Making the event about just the two of them
- Having a ceremony and wedding day that reflects their personality and style
- Taking away the stress of organising a big family event
- Making the day a truly magical experience and an adventure
- Being mindful of their budget
- Having timings that worked for them
- Having a ready-made honeymoon location already sorted
INSPIRED BY NATURE …. addicted to adventure …
Here at Liberty Pearl Photo & Film Collective, we have photographed many beautiful elopements in Cornwall over the past five years. And each and every one of them has been as special and unique for each of our couples we have been lucky enough to capture. Elopement weddings are not your traditional ‘cookie-cutter’ type weddings, our couples have incorporated their personalities into the day as much as possible, recent Cornwall elopements have included rock climbing, a mini-festival, venturing into beautiful woodlands, dancing in fields, watching the sunset over the beautiful Cornish coastline, paddling in the sea, exploring ancient Cornish ruins and international couples revisiting memorable locations from their previous visits to the UK.
Photographing natural landscapes and seascapes is always a breathtaking experience and something you will be able to relive each time you look through your images……..
We know that we’re biased as we’re based in the South West, but Cornish elopements are always really special.
Our elopement couples may be very different but they all have one thing in common; they love the great outdoors and they love nature. It shouldn’t be underestimated how important it is to be able to feature the natural environment in your photographs.
Here in Cornwall, we have some of the most beautiful beaches, woodland and coastal venues on offer in the UK. And yes we know the hidden gems, the areas that work best for any time of year, and locations that will make your heart sing.
Some of our favourite elopement wedding venues in Cornwall are BoHo Cornwall, Polhawn Fort, Pentillie Castle, Tredudwell Manor, Trevenna Barns,
Lower Barns, The Green Cornwall, Camel Studios,
The Scarlet Hotel, Pengenna Manor, Cosawes Barton, Trenderway Farm, The Cow Shed Weddings to name but a few of our favourites….
