I just got back from holiday in Devon where I spent many happy hours taking photographs around Bigbury on Sea. This bought back special memories of my own wedding at the wonderful Burgh Island Hotel which is a uniquely special Wedding Venue.
Burgh Island Wedding Photography
Burgh Island is one of my favourite places and I can never be bored of shooting there. The island is set in a spectacular stretch of coastline. It is a location of contrasts with the wonderfully wild Island, elegant Art Deco, and the mysterious history the Pilchard it’s Smuggler’s Inn. I adore the island and know the hotel and the team very well.
The island setting and magnificent hotel mean that there will be many stunning locations for your wedding portraits. As a location, it has everything a wedding photographer could desire; wonderful light, irresistible backdrops with graceful architecture, and magnificent views which literally change with the tides. These will all form a gorgeous backdrop for your wedding pictures.
Whatever the weather or the time of year, the light and surroundings always make Burgh Island a pleasure to photograph and a perfect setting for amazing wedding photography.
If you are getting married at the Burgh Island Hotel I would love to talk to you about my wedding collections.
Burgh Island Hotel - an Art Deco Wedding Venue
Burgh Island Hotel is an Art Deco gem set on its own tidal island. The hotel is a one-of-a-kind experience reached across a beautiful stretch of golden sand. It is cut off by the sea at high tide and can be reached only by the quirky and eccentric sea tractor which carries you on the short journey from the shore on a platform above the waves to the island with the Hotel and a 14th century Smuggler’s Inn.
The hotel, built in 1929, is one of the finest Art Deco hotels in Europe and full of original features. The glorious island setting, and beautiful original features combine to make the hotel glamorous yet intimate. A feeling that is created by the original features and the stunning island location which make it a wonderful romantic retreat.
It was one of the most popular in the country in the 1930s and was a favourite of Noel Coward, and Agatha Christie who wrote and set some of her novels on the island. The hotel fell into disuse in the 1960s and 70s but is now restored to its former glory.
