Chris and Gemma’s Boho Wedding at Polhawn Fort

Polhawn Fort outdoor ceremony Cornwall wedding photographer

When Gemma and Chris approached us about capturing their wedding at Polhawn Fort on the Cornish coast, they said their priority was for their guests to have fun.

They were looking for a relaxed and jovial day, not only as a celebration of their love for each other, but for their wonderful friends and family.

Having been together for nine years and now living on Sydney’s northern beaches in Australia, having Polhawn Fort for the whole weekend was a chance for them to spend more time with their loved ones.

The weather might not have been quite as hot as Down Under, but the Cornish coast lived up to its reputation and provided a beautiful backdrop to their wedding.

Gemma looked stunning in her elegant ivory over champagne/blush gown, whilst Chris wore textured blue. It has to be said that he completely rocked his waistcoat whilst the ushers looked dapper with their braces. The bridesmaids’ mint green dresses topped the whole ensemble of the wedding party, which was understated, elegant and fun.

Beautiful from start to finish, the flowers from Ruth Andrews perfectly complemented the rustic and relaxed vibe of the day.

There was plenty of laughter, tears and special moments, as Gemma and Chris made the most of the breath-taking scenery and spent the day celebrating just how they had hoped they would.

Wedding Photography at Trevenna Barns Cornwall

I LOVE THE IN BETWEEN MOMENTS

I have just delivered this beautiful wedding to a gorgeous couple who were married at Trevenna Barns, in Cornwall.

Ash and Kate wedding Trevenna Barns wedding photography in Cornwall

It’s an exciting moment when I deliver a couple’s wedding photos to them, I’m always waiting on the edge of my seat for their feedback, and it’s always lovely to hear their kind words and praise, but it’s also very sad because it is the last step of our wedding journey together.

I love getting to know my clients and finding out about their adventures together, how they met, how they got engaged, and why they chose their venue, it really helps me to capture the best in every couple on their wedding day.

I absolutely love this photo! It sums up the couple just perfectly

So in love and and so happy!

Is the wedding industry a rip off?

Is the wedding industry a rip off Pland and presents wedding blog Devon wedding photographer

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….

Liberty Pearl Photography Wedding Workshop

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

Best of 2016 Devon Wedding Photographer Liberty Pearl

Wowee what an AMAZING year 2016 has been for Liberty Pearl Photography, we have captured 30 amazingly, beautiful, naturally love filled, magical, wonderful weddings, and we have LOVED every single one of them!

This year has been a very exciting year for Liberty Pearl Photography, firstly with Amber from Liberty Pearl Photography getting engaged at the beautiful Gidleigh Park on the edge of Dartmoor in March, then quickly married in May in a quaint little Cornish fishing village, Kingsand, Cornwall. Read about her engagement story on the How He Asked wedding blog.

Wedding styling…..elegance and simplicity

We have started styling bridal photo shoots, fusing amazing up and coming and award winning wedding suppliers and boutique venues and their stunning gardens and grounds. These photo shoots have been widely published in top wedding blogs and magazines which has been awesome! We have started a series of wedding photography workshops in Devon and cornwall which have been lots of fun, a huge success and again widely published! We photographed 3 intimate elopement weddings, which were just so simple, magical and relaxed, we cannot wait to capture more of these intimate weddings in 2017.

My first wedding of the year was in January at the beautiful Cornish wedding venue Trevenna Barns. The venue is set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty right on the edge of Bodmin Moor. We have photographed 3 weddings now, and have 2 more booked in for the 2017 wedding season.

Destination weddings

During 2016 we have travelled all over the UK photographing lovely couples at incredible wedding venues. We have also been very lucky to capture destination weddings in Ireland in the Wicklow Mountains at The Kippure Estate, and in Cape Town, South Africa at the Nooitgedacht Estate.  The weddings were absolutely AMAZING! We love destination weddings and have a couple more booked in the calendar for 2017 YIPPEE! View the Irish wedding on the Plans & Presents wedding blog.

We have photographed weddings in the following wedding venues over the past 12 months:
Trevenna Barns Cornwall, Kingsand Village Hall Cornwall, The Royal William Yard Plymouth, Thornbury Castle Bristol, Amelies Porthlevan, New Cottage Dance Centre Cardiff, Deer Park Hotel DevonColehayes Park Dartmoor, Yurt Camp Devon, New Barton Barns Devon, Polhawn Fort Cornwall, Kippure Estate Dublin, Tredudwell Manor Cornwall, Dartington Hall Devon, Bedruthen Hotel and Spa Cornwall, Clivedon House London, The Tudor Barn, Roadford Lake Devon, Pilton Glastonbury, The Green Cornwall, The Nooitgedacht Estate Cape Town South Africa, Tavistock Town Hall Devon, Ever After A Dartmoor Wedding Devon, Ayrmer Cove Devon, St Ives Town HallThe Mill House Inn Trebarwith Strand, Anran Devon, and the wedding season finally ended with a beautiful winter wedding at another of my favourite Cornish wedding venues The Green Cornwall.

This year my wedding photography was described as natural & beautiful…

My aim was to capture the love, joy & happiness of every wedding day…..

I am a very happy, friendly and relaxed lady, and my aim at every wedding was to capture the love, happiness and joy at everyone one of my 2016 weddings. I got to know as much as I could about my bride and grooms, I found out what really mattered to them on their wedding day. I offered a personalised, flexible and professional service, which put my couples at ease during their wedding planning process. My thoughtful and organised service ensured that all of my clients remained confident and reassured knowing that I was going to capture their wedding day the way THEY WANTED.

We love capturing weddings that reflect a couple and their personalities………

This year the weddings have been so exquisitely diverse, we have visited a host of charming and stylish wedding venues with weddings styled in so many different ways. Each and every wedding has mirrored the TRUE character of each couple. We LOVE a wedding that isn’t the traditional ‘cookie cutter’ type wedding. We love capturing weddings that reflect a couple and their personalities however quirky, non traditional and offbeat this may be.

I take inspiration from nature….

Environmental portraits are my passion. I love framing my couples with the surrounding environment, I adore beautiful fields flowing with fresh wild flowers, stunning coastlines, rolling green hills, the wide open landscapes of Dartmoor, The Natural Trust, and forests. So if you are planning a wedding with a location like this nearby this would be my dream wedding to shoot.
