A beautiful intimate Elopement on Burgh Island with hints of monochrome and Art Deco

Today I am thrilled to share this beautiful intimate Elopement on Burgh Island with hints of monochrome and Art Deco.

Images were captured by Emma Barrow Photography.

She says of the couples day…


I always enjoy photographing an intimate Elopement, It’s when you feel you really make a difference to the couple and you are an intrinsic piece of the wedding.

The venue was Burgh Island, an iconic Art Deco landmark and retreat, positioned on a wildly beautiful and secluded tidal island off the South Devon Coast.

The hotel was once described as a shining white ocean liner surrounded by golden beaches and silver seas.

I was welcomed by the groom and his two close friends getting ready in one of the hotel suites as the evening set out to be beautiful with the pretty sunset light.

Bride Christina was getting ready too in the beach house which over looks all of Bigbury and Bantham, with amazing views.

The couples intimate ceremony took place in the captain’s cabin followed by drinks and celebrations between the party.

Following the ceremony I whisked the couple around the grounds of the hotel for their portraits and just as the sun started to set, down on to the beach.

Back at the hotel there was quick cake cut and onto cocktails and canap├ęs where I left the couple and their party to enjoy the rest of their elopement celebrations.
