Today I am thrilled to share this stunning styled shoot shot on location at the Duke of Cornwall Hotel which is shortly to relaunch as a Wedding Venue.
In keeping with the setting the shoot was entitled “Opulence” to reflect the luxury feel of the hotel.
Images were captured by Martyn Norsworthy of Norsworthy Weddings.
Martyn shares the inspiration behind the shoot…
“The wonderful Duke of Cornwall Hotel in Plymouth is on a march to relaunch itself as a Wedding venue.”
“I was asked to pop along to meet the team and show them my work and Wow what an amazing hotel, the architecture and grand rooms are stunning and not appreciated by simply driving past.”
“After showing the team my work I suggested I ought to arrange a shoot to showcase the venue.”
“This was perfect as they were planning an interactive Wedding Show which takes place this Sunday 4th October. organised by Rachel Roberts of R&R Events.”
“Wanting to capture the hotels many architectural features, most of which are unique in the area, I had a planned a shoot entitled “Opulence”.
“My work is bold and fashion based, and having seen so many vintage styled shoots I wanted to show the bold wallpapers, the wood panelling and the general bold Victorian feel.”
“The hotel was Plymouths first luxury Hotel and was built in 1863, many of the original features survive.”
“My feeling is that the hotel had a very masculine feel, great for grooms and also great to soften features with a bold Dress for a bride.”
“The Duke offers a different feel to a wedding, and just encapsulates the luxury and opulence tha form the look of the shoot.”
“I called together some of the regions finest wedding suppliers to help produce the results you will see and I am glad to say the hotel LOVED my style and the results of our collaborative Wedding Venue styled shoot!
“I will be showcasing the images captured at the shoot at The Duke Collection Live, this Sunday.”
Thank you so much to Martyn and the amazing collaborative team that have brought together their incredible skills to showcase this gorgeous Wedding Venue at its very best.
