Be a blessing

be a blessing pink blush

I am starting a personal documentary project called ‘Be a Blessing’ about people volunteering or working in their local community and how they are a blessing to those around them. I want to share the amazing work God is doing through people in local communities and how lives are changed through kindness, compassion and love.

If you know someone who works tirelessly to change their community and share God’s love by being a blessing, please share this post and pass on my details.

I would love to meet and interview people, and find out about what they are doing, photograph them and their team and maybe some users of their community groups?

I love meeting people, hearing their stories and sharing people’s passions. I love community work, I love inspiring people and want to share how acts of kindness can change someone’s life and change the world around them.

This is something that has been on my heart for a while but I have never known where to start or how to find these people.

I have always wanted to use my God given gift as a photographer to make a difference in people’s lives and to inspire people, so please get into contact if you would like to be featured on my ‘Be A Blessing’ blog series.

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

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.

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.

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.

Cornish wedding at Menheniot Church / Boconnoc House and Estate – Mr and Mrs Rixon

This was such a lovely Cornish wedding at the Boconnoc House & Estate in one of Cornwall’s stunning valleys. Of course it was blessed with the typical English summer weather, the day started with torrential rain and lightening bolts, and finished with glorious sunshine and brilliant blue skies! The couple were married in the bride’s local family church in the quaint little Cornish village of Menheniot. After the ceremony they were quickly whisked off in a beautiful vintage car to Castle Air, they couple were greeted with champagne just before boarding their helicopter to the wedding venue.

I had no choice but to travel with the bride and groom to document this momentous occasion. It was superb! I was so excited I almost forgot to take photos! We arrived at the Boconnoc Estate within 10 minutes of flight, to the excited wedding guests who were waiting on the lawn with their cameras at the ready for the VIP arrival. What a way to make an entrance! The afternoon was followed with croquet on the lawn, lots of Pimms, jam and clotted cream scones, dancing and lots more fun shenanigans!

Congratulations to Briony and Edward, your wedding day was just perfect and full of so much love and happiness I know it will last a lifetime xxxx

Below is the bible verse that was read at the church wedding ceremony, it was really lovely:

1 John 4:9-12
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.

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!
