An elegant white winter wedding – Kitley House Plymouth Devon

An elegant white winter wedding – Kitley House Plymouth Devon

I love being a wedding photographer in Devon, beautiful weddings like this just make my heart sing. I met the bride when she modelled on a styled wedding photo shoot last summer shoot, and she was very beautiful. I was so happy when she asked me to photograph her winter wedding at the stunning Plymouth wedding venue Kitley House Hotel! The bride wanted snow, but instead we had a beautiful layer of white frost covering the floor. The frost on the lawn created a beautiful backdrop for the bridal portraits. Everything about this wedding was elegant and beautiful in such a simple way, just perfect!

The bride wrote about why she booked me as her wedding photographer on her fabulous blog, “So the lady I chose to capture my day is called Amber who is a Devon based photographer and works for Liberty Pearl Photography, her work has been posted on Juno & joy, Whimsical wonderland weddings and Rock my wedding to name a few. I already knew Amber from a wedding model shoot I photographed earlier last year, and because I loved her style I had to have her for the wedding. Besides the stunning pictures that you can see from her published work, I love the fact she takes a natural approach and it doesn’t feel like everything is staged, she’s very much in the background capturing moments happening around her. But even “staged” shots such as group photo’s and the bride and groom don’t feel awkward or unnatural which is the last thing you want to show through in your photos.”

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.

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.
