Oozing opulence, decadence and luxury, this bridal shoot at The Duke of Cornwall Hotel in Plymouth offers spellbinding inspiration
Presenting the perfect backdrop for weddings which capture the beauty of old fashioned romance and modern-day nuptials, The Duke of Cornwall Hotel is a marvellous and majestic venue. Celebrating this iconic building, the 'Opulence' shoot, shot by Martyn Norsworthy, harnesses the essence of this historical hotel.
"The ideas behind The Duke photoshoot came to me after an initial meeting and show round. Wow! I fell in love with the architecture and the details of this amazing Victorian building. The shoot had to capture the bold features and not be shy to show how stunning these features are. The idea that came to mind was 'Opulence'; a shoot that captured substance and style and everything on a grand scale. Larger dresses, sharp suits and stunning details. The hotel is packed with delights from the flower window, the lanterns, the amazing staircase, not to mention luxurious wallpapers and wood paneling... the list is endless. Hopefully the shoot captures it all." Martyn Norsworthy of Norsworthy Weddings
