Bride and groom standing on the spiral staircase at The Duke of Cornwall Hotel

Showcasing the incredible venue that is The Duke of Cornwall Hotel in Plymouth, this styled shoot has an ‘opulence’ theme.

Martyn from Norsworthy Weddings captures the hotel in all its glory to give inspiration to couples looking for their wedding venue. The opulence theme works so well in this grand hotel…

“The idea behind The Duke of Cornwall Hotel styled shoot 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 and amazing staircase, not to mention luxurious wallpapers and wood panelling. The list is endless. The shoot captures it all.”
