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.

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.

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
