Are you the type of bride looking for inspiration, new trends and stylish accessories? The Duke Wedding Collection: Live at Plymouth’s award winning Duke of Cornwall Hotel is the wedding event for you.

We were honoured to be asked to capture the Duke’s first wedding event since it’s wedding relaunch this September. The Duke of Cornwall Hotel in Plymouth is a fairytale wedding venue and the event oozed with glamour and vintage splendour.

In between taking photos I spoke to lots of lovely brides, grooms and their families, about the stunning venue and their exciting wedding plans. Many brides took the opportunity to explore this gorgeous venue and enjoyed some top-notch wedding inspiration along the way. It was fantastic seeing so many talented, creative local wedding suppliers all under one roof.

There was also a brilliant prize is up for grabs, in the form of ‘a fabulous vintage experience’, which includes a photo shoot and Champagne ‘Tea at the Top’ with butler service.

With gorgeous wedding inspiration aplenty, a live fashion show and live entertainment amongst the day’s delights, make the event a must in your wedding planning calendar, details coming soon.

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.

on Sunday 4th October 2015 | 11:00 am – 4:00 pm.

English wedding photographer in New York

I would love to photograph a wedding on my trip to New York this winter.

Are you getting married in New York this winter? 

Are you a wedding planner with weddings booked in New York this winter?

Do you write for a New York Wedding blog?

If so I would love to hear from you and work with you so please get in contact.

Here’s my story…..

Amber-McCarthy-Devon-Wedding-and-portrait-photographerI am a professional wedding photographer based in the UK. I am travelling
to New York over the Christmas period in 2015 (dates 17th December 2015 –  5th January 2016). I am really looking for the opportunity to work with a New York wedding planner to photograph a beautiful winter wedding.

I am a destination wedding photographer and have photographed a diverse range of weddings across Europe, and I would love to shoot a winter wedding in New York City this winter.

I need to connect with a bride and groom so I can photograph their wedding? I know it is very short notice so there is also the possibility of a pre-wedding shoot instead?

I know this sounds unusual but I would love to do this for free (my fee is usually $2600). I just had the idea that I would love to be a blessing to couple on their wedding day due to it being Christmas, but if the couple insisted on paying me I would donate the money to a great charity.

I am planning to get this wedding featured on an international wedding blog; I have been featured on 7 top UK/ international wedding blogs in the last 12 months alone including Mr & Mrs Unique, Want That Wedding, Wed Magazine, Juno & Joy, Festival Brides, Coco Wedding Venues, and The Wedding Community.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or queries.

I look forward to hearing from you very soon xxxx

Vintage winter wedding at Trevenna Barns Cornwall

It was a wonderful day for a vintage winter wedding at Trevenna Barns in the Parish of St. Neot, Cornwall. The bride grew up next to the beautiful rural wedding venue and has had her heart set on getting married their. The venue is such a naturally beautiful location just perfect for wedding celebrations. The couple love Trevenna’s Location in Cornwall overlooking the staggering landscape of Bodmin Moor. The venue has a real countryside feel, with ancient stone walls, sleek glass & walnut stairs, log burners. The bride wore a stunning vintage style wedding dress with a simple red bouquet which beautifully complemented the dress. I loved the rustic theme to the wedding, the flowers in glass jars were so pretty.

Vintage festival styled wedding photo shoot with Blue Fizz Events at Clovelly Court North Devon

We were blessed with a stunning location and beautiful weather for this spring styled wedding shoot at Clovelly Court in North Devon.  It was the first time I had visited this venue and the first thing that jumped out at me was beautiful Victorian walled gardens (Clovelly Court Gardens), I absolutely LOVE wedding venues with gardens, they are a rich source of vibrant and beautiful scenery for a photo shoot or real life wedding photos. I particularly love the old walled around these gardens, they have so much texture!

The photo shoot was styled with a vintage and festival theme. This stunning styled wedding photo shoot organised by the Devon wedding planning company Blue Fizz Events. Featuring the Blue Fizz gorgeous marquees. Blue Fizz Events’ highly professional and efficient wedding planner team will create wonderful experiences for your marquee celebration – whatever the occasion, and across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. They specialise in planning weddings, christenings, anniversary parties and corporate events – and of course they offer marquee hire too.

It was the first time I had worked with the Blue Fizz team and all I can say is that I was very impressed by their professionalism, amazing organisation, and the abundance of creative ideas they had for the photo shoot. The models were also very experienced and were great to work with.

My favourite elements of the photo shoot:
I loved all the flowers in garden especially the bed of tulips.  The bouquet was brilliant, the colours suited the theme perfectly.
The vintage dresses supplied by the wonderful Days Of Grace, who supply heirloom gowns of a vintage style for brides. These one-off designs are made from antique lace and vintage textiles and are perfect for country weddings, barefoot on the beach or a beautiful summer picnic and they are all so so beautiful.
The headdresses were all so pretty, my favourite was the Liberty Halo headdress supplied byHey Jules. The Liberty Halo is perfect for the free spirited bride.

Here are some images from our styled Vintage Festival photo shoot at Clovelly Court, Clovelly Village.
