Christmas Imperial Hotel Torquay Wedding Photography || Jess and Max

I first met Jess at The Devon Wedding Show. She exuded enthusiasm and excitement when we spoke and looked through the albums on my table – Jess is the kind of person who lights up a room! A few months later, after I assumed they’d found another photographer, I was thrilled to get an email from her wanting to meet up.

They had reservations about wedding photography as they were both camera shy and didn’t think they photographed well – nonsense. I think my response was “you’re a ridiculously good looking couple”.

But that’s not important anyway! On your wedding day, you glow with a happiness which will always be beautiful behold and document. And as a documentary photographer, I assured them that they would barely notice me throughout the day.

A what a day it was! They had a wonderful ceremony in Cockington Church and reception at The Imperial Hotel, Torbay. All was cosy and christmassy and joyful!

Imperial Hotel Luxury Gold Wedding Styling || Torquay Wedding Photography

As a Torquay Wedding Photographer, I was at the Imperial Hotel‘s wedding fayre in September and had an impromptu photoshoot with Hannah Taylor and her gorgeous luxury gold venue styling. We got published on Wed Magazines blog!

Hannah used rich reds and decadent golds to create a warm and elegant colour scheme. Finished off with a gorgeously decorated cake, vibrant bouquets and delicate details such as on-trend patterned textiles and beautifully designed stationery.

With thanks to Hannah Taylor Wedding Stylist for her beautiful styling. Daisy Molly and Me for providing the lovely cake. The Bridal Box for lending us their model and dress! I heartily recommend these wonderful wedding suppliers, so if you’re planning your wedding need your dress, venue styling or cake, contact these lovely ladies.

imperial hotel torquay wedding photography testimonial

Some kind words from Em & Joe who’s wedding I photographed at The Imperial in June 2015:

“Holly is an absolutely fabulous photographer, who blended into our wedding day perfectly. She captured numerous stunning candid moments from our day, which is exactly what we wanted, along with beautiful formal images. We would recommend her wholeheartedly (and have) to anyone who will listen. She is just an incredible and a passionate artist, who can bring light and colour which is invisible to the rest of us. Plus she can makes everyone stunning!

Her images are so fresh, beautiful, bright and colourful on her website. Every wedding party looks stunning, and you think “We want to look that beautiful too, damnit!” but of course, you worry – as everyone does – that she won’t be able to do it for you… Then you meet her, and her quiet confidence communicates “Trust me, I can” and you do… and she does!”

– Em and Joe, Imperial Hotel, Torquay Wedding Photography

Imperial Hotel, Torquay Wedding Photography || Em and Joe

The second ever email I received from Em was filled with pictures about their dream wedding; Em’s dress and shoes, the suits, the venue, flowers, table decorations and a bit about them. I just knew I had to be their photographer!

We hit it off over a hot drink when they visited from Bedford and as well as meeting them, I met Em’s lovely parents too, who have a gallery in Cockington Village and who, on the day, were wonderful and kind, and sent me home with a box of their fudge <3

Em and Joe’s love and happiness just radiate from these photos, I’m so proud to have been their photographer.Imperial Hotel Torquay Wedding Photography, glittering gold and emerald green colour scheme_0002 bridal dresses, vivienne westwood shoes and a bucket of gypsophilia flowersEm’s beautiful Pronovias dress, which she amazingly found on eBay for a slice of the £2200 price tag, hangs with her Vivienne Westwood Ladydragon shoes and gypsophila bouquet by Alison Potts.
