One year ago I left my job as a Digital Marketing Officer at Plymouth University to become a full time photographer…and what a year it has been!!
I specialise in wedding photography but also photograph family portraits, engagement shoots, events and press commissions when required. My vintage photo booth has also taken off this year with many bookings at weddings, charity events, Christmas and birthday parties.
In total I have photographed 30 weddings in stunning wedding venues across the UK such as The V&A Museum in London, Summer Hall Art gallery in Edinburgh, Deer Park Hotel Devon, Polhawn Fort Cornwall, Kitley House Hotel Devon, The Green in Cornwall, Wicke Farm Bath, and Ashton Court Bristol. I also had destination wedding bookings in Ibiza and Spain!
I have photographed 31 vintage photo booths, 16 family photo shoots, as well as commissions from Plymouth University, The Marine Academy Plymouth, Plymouth School of Creative Arts, and other local businesses in Plymouth.
I also started working with an amazing charity called Jeremiah’s Journey, which led me to judge their first ever, photo marathon in Plymouth, which was fantastic.
I have had weddings featured on National weddings and fashion blogs such as Whimsical Wonderland Weddings, Rock My Wedding, and Stylight. Have had my weddings featured and on the front covers of numerous weddings magazines such as La Belle, Bristol and Somerset Wedding Magazine and Always & Forever.
Now looking towards 2015… I have 21 weddings booked in so far across the southwest of England in some beautiful locations and have lots more exciting things to come. Did I say that I love being a wedding photographer in Devon and Cornwal!
Here are a few of my favourite images of 2014 xxx

Sophie and Martin were married in March in the beautiful wedding venue The Green Cornwall. They were extremely lucky with stunning weather; the sun was shining from the start of the ceremony until the last dance. The wedding guests had lots of fun enjoying the weather in the venue’s vast gardens set right on the edge of Bodmin Moor. The breathtaking scenery, coupled with fabulous live acoustic music, delicious home baked cakes, gorgeous sunshine and large sprinkling of love and happiness produced the perfect wedding day from the bride and groom and their friends and family!!!
We love being a wedding photographer in the South West. We are based in Plymouth, Devon and cover weddings in Bristol, London and Cornwall, but as Liberty Pearl Photography is a destination wedding photographer we are happy to take bookings anywhere in the UK or abroad.

This was one of the loveliest weddings I have ever been to, two very beautiful people celebrating their special day. Beth and Daniel had their wedding ceremony in Plymouth Museum’s main gallery, followed by a short ferryboat ride with their guests to Kingsand Village hall in Cornwall. Beth had decorated the village hall with simple vintage style decor and the lawn was scattered with hay bails for seats. The wedding breakfast was extremely yummy, it was a very British afternoon tea party with tea, sandwiches and homemade cakes brought by their guests. The afternoon was set aside for drinking local cider, mingling, flying kites and relaxing in the beautiful Cornish summer sunshine on the village hall lawn. Congratulations to the Maxwell-Pooley newly weds, your wedding was a truly wonderful day and I was so lucky to be a part of it.

Lydia and Mike were married at the beautiful Cornish wedding venue The Green. A luxurious Cornish escape, set in a private estate surrounded by orchards, meadows, a lake, and the stunning skylines of Cornwall’s iconic mining heritage. It was beautiful day from start to finish. The bride looked like a beautiful princess and the venue looked a dream. As you can see the bride absolutely loves flowers.

It was great fun at the wedding vintage photo booth for the lovely couple Lydia and Mike In July 2013. We used a small converted barn at beautiful wedding venue The Green, Cornwall, House and Cottages to set up the photo booth. Hours of fun were had by the wedding guests, we took numerous photos with the wedding couple and all their groups of friends I think at one point there were approx 20 people wearing the vintage props posing for the vintage photo booth. That’s why I love our booth becuase it’s not a physical booth we as many as possible can join in the fun. We had visits from sleeping babies, grandmas, couples, the wedding band ‘The Retro Gents’ also came to the barn for some photo booth action during their break! Here are a selection of photos from the night. ENJOY!! We are available for vintage photo booth bookings for wedding, birthday parties, festivals, corporate and charity events in Devon, Cornwall, Bristol, London and beyond!! Please visit our vintage photo booth webpage for further information.

Here are few photos from Nicola and Darren’s beautiful wedding blessing in Cawsand, Cornwall in July. The bride Nicola looked absolutely stunning and the setting was just perfect for the wedding blessing with close friends and family. The wedding was held in a marquee at the family home and the gardens were bursting with the colours of beautiful flowers. The children were brilliant in front of the camera, they couldn’t get enough photos and were organising photo shoots with their friends around the gardens; I love kids when they get creative. The evening light was perfect for this beautiful Cornish wedding photo shoot. I love every single photo!!!
