Pre wedding engagement shoot Devon bluebell woodland

This lovely couple are getting married on their farm in Devon in a few days time. Romantic country weddings are always so unique and set in the heart of the beautiful countryside. I absolutely love farm weddings!

The couple wanted to show me around the farm and have a practise photo shoot before their big day. They chose the stunning bluebell woodland as their pre wedding photo shoot location. The sea of bluebells turned the woodland floor into a dazzling carpet of shimmering blue.

It was a lovely afternoon walking through the woodland discussing the couples wonderful wedding plans. The dog also came along for the photo shoot and loved joining in the photos CUTE.

A Lake District Adventure

Even though I am usually a wedding and portrait photographer, a selection of beautiful landscape photographs should not be kept hidden way on a computer forever. Liberty Pearl Photography went for an adventure around the stunning scenery of Lake District this winter. Only a few places in England can measure up to this outlandishly beautiful lake and mountain region. The landscape is breathtaking, a sweeping panorama of humpbacked mountains, razor blade crags and scree-covered hillsides, strewn with mountainous tarns and some of the largest natural lakes anywhere in the UK.

As you can see from the images, lakes and rivers, diverse landscape, ancient woodlands and the variety of geology is what makes Lake District such a unique and lovely place, perfect for a trip with family or friends.

Autumn Winter family photo shoot in Devon – Saltram House

I wanted to test out a location for wintery family photo shoots, so Liberty Pearl and I headed down to the beautiful National Trust woodland at Saltram House in Devon. The Saltram Estate is situated on the outskirts of Plymouth, so it is the perfect spot for an on location family or pre-wedding photo shoot. The autumn trees were so beautifully coloured. We had a lovely morning walking around the gardens and woodland, and I am really happy with the photos. In fact I liked them so much we used them as our Christmas cards this year!

Saltram House is a magnificent Georgian mansion and tranquil garden positioned at the heart of this historic parkland. Saltram overlooks the River Plym and is set in a rolling landscape park that provides precious green space on the outskirts of Plymouth. Strolling along the riverside or through the woodland, you can almost forget that the city lies so close. It is definitely worth a visit.

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

Jeremiah’s Journey – A Jolly Toddle at Buckland

On Sunday 11th May lots of families took part in our first ever Teddy Bear Toddle at the beautiful Buckland Abbey. The sun shone as families met and registered for the 2 mile walk. Jeremiah was on hand to say hello and we even had Cinderella there to greet our little guests. The Toddle was completed at individuals own pace, gently strolling through the beautiful woodlands laced with bluebells, the cows popped over to say hello and the sheep were very excited to see everyone passing through!

Using the Explorers Map the children could take part in a Teddy Trail with questions to answer teddies hidden along the route. On completing the walk every child received a goody bag complete with their own certificate and lots of other treats.

Although we experienced a few showers it didn’t dampen the mood as the children enjoyed a picnic and dancing with Cinderella, there was also colourful face painting and a raffle with lovely treats to win, including these delicious cupcakes by the Cheeky Cake Company.

What a day for a photo shoot!!! It was raining, windy and very very cold but we decided to ahead with the engagement shoot anyway!
