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.

Dress: Oscar de la Renta
Flowers: Jens Jakobsen Floral Construction

Bristol wedding – Ashton Court Estate

Claire and Ollie were married in the stunning Ashton Court Mansion in Bristol this November.

Their wedding was themed with the beautiful Bristol Blue* and gold and the couple share a great passion for music so their wedding was a very lively affair. The couple have an abundance of amazing friends and family and it was a pleasure capturing their perfect day!

Ashton Court Mansion sits proudly on the edge of 860 acres of glorious, undulating parkland. Protected by a sweep of high ground, the estate is only a short distance from the Clifton Suspension bridge, and a five minute drive from the city’s vibrant and cosmopolitan centre.

*This shade of blue is used for the world famous Bristol blue glass, which was started back in 1988 by James Adlington, with the help of glass maker Peter St Clair.

Winter Family photo shoot Cornwood, Plymouth, Devon

It was a beautiful day spent on an adventure with this lovely family for their special woodland winter photo shoot. The family chose the location due to the stunning pink painted oak tree; of course the girls love anything pink! The oak tree is a brilliant fluorescent shade of pink painted by Henry Bruce in the small Devon village of Cornwood.

Henry Bruce, 35, wanted to raise awareness of a fungal disease which is affecting trees across the country.

Read more about this campaign on the Daily Mail website.

It was very fun on location portrait session, the girls enjoyed exploring the woodland and playing with the leaves and fresh saw dust! As you can see there is so much love in this family and the little girls are so very cute!

I love on location natural family portraits, being a natural light photographer I love nothing more than taking a trip to the local beach, park or woodland with a family to capture them laughing and having fun.

All life stages can be photographed by Liberty Pearl Photography from maternity to 100-year-olds’ birthdays! I am comfortable shooting any age: babies, toddlers, children and adults, for both full family and individual portraits. Please contact me for further information.

Bristol Family Portrait – Vassels Park

In this gallery you can see a selection of photographs from a family photo shoot in the stunning Vassels Park in Bristol. Even in winter the park was teaming with beautiful trees and colourful flowers.

The family had a happy day and we enjoyed the inspiring nature in this unique place.

I love on location natural family portraits, being a natural light photographer I love nothing more than taking a trip to the local park or woodland with a gorgeous family to capture them having fun and smiling.

A Lake District Adventure

Even though I am usually a wedding and portrait photographer, a selection of beautiful landscape photographs should not be kept hidden way on a computer forever. Liberty Pearl Photography went for an adventure around the stunning scenery of Lake District this winter. Only a few places in England can measure up to this outlandishly beautiful lake and mountain region. The landscape is breathtaking, a sweeping panorama of humpbacked mountains, razor blade crags and scree-covered hillsides, strewn with mountainous tarns and some of the largest natural lakes anywhere in the UK.

As you can see from the images, lakes and rivers, diverse landscape, ancient woodlands and the variety of geology is what makes Lake District such a unique and lovely place, perfect for a trip with family or friends.

Autumn Winter family photo shoot in Devon – Saltram House

I wanted to test out a location for wintery family photo shoots, so Liberty Pearl and I headed down to the beautiful National Trust woodland at Saltram House in Devon. The Saltram Estate is situated on the outskirts of Plymouth, so it is the perfect spot for an on location family or pre-wedding photo shoot. The autumn trees were so beautifully coloured. We had a lovely morning walking around the gardens and woodland, and I am really happy with the photos. In fact I liked them so much we used them as our Christmas cards this year!

Saltram House is a magnificent Georgian mansion and tranquil garden positioned at the heart of this historic parkland. Saltram overlooks the River Plym and is set in a rolling landscape park that provides precious green space on the outskirts of Plymouth. Strolling along the riverside or through the woodland, you can almost forget that the city lies so close. It is definitely worth a visit.

Cornish Wedding – The Green Cornwall – Sophie and Martin

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.

La Belle Wedding Magazine Styled Wedding Shoot – Cornwall

What a lovely way to spend the day, photographing a beautiful bride for a La Belle Wedding Magazine festival wedding feature. We went to one of my favourite Cornish wedding venues  The Green Cornwall, which is 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. The weather was unpredictable at times so we had to dash between the house, gardens and cottages to avoid the showers, but this made the day a lot more fun!

A huge thank you to the following local suppliers for making the photo shoot a success. The beautiful dress was provided by The Wedding Company in Plympton, and the colourful bouquets were made by Honours Flowers. Our breathtaking model Becky Smith was styled by Gem Ryder Make Up Artist and Vogue Hair. The beautiful venue was The Green Cornwall. Please take a look at the photos, we absolutely love the photos and are very pleased with the results!

Engagement shoot – Brobury Scar Woods Hereforshire

The sun was shining down through the treetops to highlight this beautiful couple on their Pre Wedding photo shoot. We were really lucky with the weather, though I think not even rain could have washed the smile off their faces. The couple who walking so lovingly through Brobury Scar Woods in Herefordshire, were happy as could be.  The woodland was very impressive with tall trees enveloped by leafy moss and lightened by beautiful natural sunshine.

To finish off the pre wedding shoot we walked through a stunning field full of bright yellow rapeseed flowers, it was like walking through an angelic yellow heaven. The couple were full of many smiles and kisses!

I’m really looking forward to their beautiful wedding this summer in Brobury House in Herefordshire, which has some beautiful gardens and grounds, positioned high above the river Wye xx

Pulp Flora Styled Vintage Wedding Photo Shoot – Devon

We had a great time taking photos for this amazing styled photo shoot organised by Louise from Pulpflora for their beautiful handmade paper bridal bouquets and accessories! The colourful venue, Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre, was the perfect setting for the photo shoot and provided an array of brightly coloured fairground rides and vintage props for us to use.

The beautiful wedding dresses were supplied by The Wedding Company in Plympton and the very talented Dana O’leary styled the model’s hair. This fabulous vintage style makeup was by Oskana Voronina. We also had some lovely button bouquet’s from Funky Poppy.

The photo shoot will be featured in the next issue of Dream Weddings Magazine!
