Classically elegant wedding in Chelsea Physic Garden London

It was so beautiful to capture the union of a such lovely couple in London Chelsea Physic Garden.
The bride lives in Chelsea, her beautiful apartment is situated beside the Thames, the natural light just floods in through the huge windows. The ceremony was held in Chelsea registry office, such a beautiful historic venue which opens out onto the high street.  The wedding reception venue – Chelsea Physic Garden was surrounded by the most astonishing plants and flowers evoking a sense of an enchanted garden. The garden was founded in 1673 by the Society of Apothecaries; one of Europe’s oldest botanic gardens. Important Herb and Medicinal collections, and of Mediterranean plants.

The striking bride, covered in white from head to toe walked in white Manolo Blahnik wearing a graceful dress provided by Oscar de la Renta; classically elegant.

It was an honour to be able to photograph this day. Such a perfect fairytale wedding.

St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth Puttin’ on the Glitz Charity Ball 2015

We had the great honour of capturing the superb St Luke’s Hospice Charity Ball 2015 –  Puttin’ on The Glitz in the fabulous Plymouth University graduation marquees.

The guests celebrated in style whilst making a real difference to patients of St Luke’s in the last months, weeks and days of life; at home, in hospital or at the hospice based in Turnchapel. This was definitely a charity event with a difference!

During the evening, there was a live auction, offering a selection of luxurious experiences and prizes donated from far and wide.

Senior Events Fundraiser at St Luke’s, Emma Winter said: “If you have been to a St Luke’s ball at the graduation marquees before, you will know this is like no other charity ball you will ever go to. The way the marquee is presented, the decor, lighting and food is really high quality, it is simply the ‘Ritz’ of all balls”.

Paul Philpott, Managing Director at Fresh Air Studios Ltd hosted a table at St Luke’s last ball in the graduation marquees: “We had an amazing time at the St Luke’s Charity Ball; entertaining both colleagues and clients. The event was extremely well organised, very high standard of food, great selection of beverages, and fun entertainment. The venue, red carpet welcome, flowers and lights – together with the stunning setting overlooking Plymouth Sound – set for a truly impressive event. Don’t forget your pocket money; as the auction is bound to have a few things worth bidding for”.

A Hollywood Glamour Vintage Wedding Shoot at The Duke of Cornwall Plymouth

We are delighted to be sharing the beautiful pictures from this Hollywood Glamour Vintage wedding shoot that took place at The Duke of Cornwall Hotel in Plymouth.

The pictures showcase the hotel’s facilities for weddings in all their splendour, and we love the Hollywood Glamour styling that works perfectly at this stunning hotel.

The Duke of Cornwall is a venue bursting with history and elegance, so when we were planning this inspirational shoot the elegance of the 1930s seemed to capture the spirit of the hotel.

We are really looking forward to showcasing the photos at the DUKE WEDDING COLLECTION: LIVE.
