Such a fab article from Alison at the PLANS AND PRESENTS wedding blog, about the wedding industry. I know lots of people who have had to give up their beautiful creative businesses because they just don’t pay the bills!
People don’t realise how much all the ‘behind the scenes’ items cost especially for photography, people think I make XX per day after looking at my wedding photography fees, I have had comments such as “you make more in a day than I make in a month!” but really the profit is very very low or non existent after paying for all the licenses, insurances, equipment, stationery, fuel, staff, marketing, branding, office costs, storage, computers, online galleries, advertising, car, websites, tax, VAT, national insurance, the list could go on….
Since I started my business I work on average in the office 50 hours per week and if I have a wedding or photo shoots that week it could go up to 70 hours! So my hourly rate is pretty awful to be honest. I didn’t taken a proper holiday (which didn’t include a destination wedding) for 2 years and I had flu pretty much the entire time I was away because I was so run down, and I haven’t had the time to take one since!
So you may ask why I and other wedding suppliers have chosen this career?
I for one love making people happy! I love providing a bespoke, creative, personalised service that suits my clients needs, I love working hard to make their wedding day so special, I love meeting new people, and getting to know them and spend time with them planning their wedding day, I love visiting beautiful wedding venues all over the world and seeing how couples add their own personal touch with their wedding styling. I love sharing such a special day with couples and capturing their family heirlooms that will last a life time.
If wedding suppliers were working in the industry simply for the money I don’t think there would be an industry to be quite honest!!!
So before you criticise people in the wedding industries or other creative industries, please think about all the behind the scenes work that goes into the beautifully hand crafted products, the sacrifices they make to their social life and their families by working weekends and during the holiday seasons, and the amount of pure LOVE they have for the industry, their wedding couples, and making every wedding day so unique and so very special! xx

We absolutely loved having our first ever styled photo shoot featured in the beautiful Wed Magazine! Love in bloom was the theme for magazine this issue and it was great to be featured with such an amazing collection of floral themed photo shoots. The magazine wrote such a lovely feature about the beautiful tropical themed bridal photo shoot. Please read below:
PARADISE FOUND (feature written by Wed Magazine)
Welcome your guests to a gorgeously elegant tropical sanctuary, where stunning blooms dazzle with colour and lush foliage crowns gloriously eye-catching bridalwear.
Located on the fringes of Dartmoor, Hotel Endsleigh is a chic and elegant wedding venue nestled amidst an awe-inspiring botanical paradise: gardens awash with roses, rhododendrons and magnolia; streams laced with little bridges and woodland dotted with grottos, follies and unusual trees from all over the world.
Taking an elegant twist on tropical wedding styling, it was the perfect setting to capture this stunning shoot. “My inspiration came from my love of nature and passion for anything floral,” explains photographer and stylist Amber McCarthy of Liberty Pearl Photography. “Taking a tropical, elegant and chic aesthetic with a huge emphasis on tropical florals and greens, the models wore couture wedding dresses, locally handmade jewellery and beautiful floral designs in their hair.” As well as an abundance of foliage and vibrant blooms, handcrafted details from local talents were a key element of the look: pottery from the renowned Leach Pottery, glassware from Dartington Crystal, cutlery from The Cutlery Commission and exquisite jewellery from Plymouth designer, Victoria Sewart, all added a beautifully handmade and individual touch to this captivating scheme.

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.

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.

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.
