Photographing a wedding is always a momentous occasion. When it takes place at a new coastal wedding venue like Pier One in Plymouth, the experience is truly unforgettable. Recently, I had the pleasure of capturing the special day of a local couple who tied the knot at this picturesque location.
The excitement of the day began as soon as I arrived at the venue. The stunning view of the ocean and the newly constructed venue overlooking the pier was breathtaking. The bride and groom had chosen a nautical theme for their wedding, with navy blue and white as their primary colors. The ambiance was festive, with guests arriving dressed in summer suits and flowy dresses.
One of the highlights of the wedding was the arrival of the groom and his groomsmen by boat. The wedding party docked their vessel at the pier, and we captured some stunning photos of the groom and his friends as they made their way to the venue. The backdrop of the clear blue water and the pier was picture-perfect. We captured some unique and creative shots of the groom and his groomsmen, including some fun and candid moments.
As the ceremony began, the sun was shining brightly, and the ocean breeze was gentle. The ceremony took place with the pier and ocean providing a picturesque backdrop. The bride looked radiant in her white gown, with her hair and makeup perfectly done. The groom, dressed in his navy blue suit, looked dapper and poised. The couple exchanged vows, and we captured some beautiful moments, including the first kiss and the joyous walk down the aisle.
After the ceremony, we moved on to the reception, which was held in the newly constructed banquet hall. The décor was exquisite, with nautical-inspired centrepieces, and navy blue tablecloths. The happy couple made their grand entrance, and the guests cheered as they danced their way to the dance floor. We captured some fantastic moments of the couple as they danced and enjoyed the festivities.
Yes, the couple had their furry friend with them at the wedding, and they wanted to capture some special moments with him. At 4 pm, their dog walker brought their beloved pup to the venue. We went off and captured some beautiful photos of the couple with their dog.
The couple’s furry friend was impeccably behaved and looked adorable in his bowtie. We captured some candid shots of the couple playing with their dog and some more formal portraits with the three of them.
Including their dog in the wedding photos added a unique and personal touch to the pictures. It was a reminder of the love and bond that the couple shares not only with each other but also with their furry family member.
After leaving their guests behind, the couple made their way to the Hoe where they had previously had their Plymouth Argyle-themed ‘confetti’ walk. A variety of Argyle flags added to the festivities as loved ones surrounded them. Against the stunning ocean backdrop near the lighthouse, the couple shared intimate moments away from the crowd before heading back to the venue to enjoy the rest of the evening with their friends and family.
Photographing a wedding at Pier One in Plymouth was definitely an unforgettable experience. Including the couple’s furry friend in the photos made it even more memorable. The location was picturesque, and the nautical theme provided a unique and creative setting for some incredible photos. The arrival of the groom and his groomsmen by boat was a highlight of the day, and we captured some fantastic moments throughout the wedding day. I feel privileged to have been a part of this special day. I am honoured to have captured these moments that the couple will cherish for a lifetime.
