Burgh Island Wedding Photography by Firehorse Photography

The first thing you might notice is this pretty picture with the stunning Burgh Island Hotel, but not exactly a whole lot of wedding photography.

Well actually no Burgh Island Wedding Photography at all. Yet…

The thing is, we haven’t worked there yet, but please read on as the purpose of this post is to detail a very special offer!

I have been a full-time wedding photographer for over 13 years and in that time have covered closing on 600 wedding days.

I’ve been to some pretty special places in the UK and especially abroad including French chateaux every year (see our Weddings in France site here) plus; hotels in Cork & Killarney, Ireland, a hilltop village in Tuscany, a taverna on the island of Rhodes, The Waldorf Astoria in New York, on the beach in both Mexico and Perth, Western Australia, a 5 star golf resort in China and a converted mill in New Zealand.

So we’ve been around! In the UK, we’ve covered weddings in country houses in England, marquees in Wales and castles in Scotland and are recommended by and regularly work at several really special venues, – in some cases over 30 times each.

But what we love most of all, are new adventures and venues and as such have targeted a small number of very specific venues both in the UK and abroad that we’d like to cover a wedding at purely because it would inspire me personally to do so.

Burgh Island is one such place. I first saw it in a Peter Suchet episode of Poirot and immediately thought, “I’d like to shoot a wedding there!”.

However, unless as a photographer you are already on a recommended list or happen to get lucky by getting a booking at such a venue, the chance of being found is exceedingly remote.

So if you are reading as a photographer who is already an officially recommended photographer, don’t worry, there’s no intention on our part to oust you, – we’d simply like to cover a wedding at Burgh Island and tick that ‘career box’.

Finally, to conclude, the offer is a simple one:

£500 flat incentive off our standard rates and zero travel fees for the first couple to book us with a Burgh Island wedding that falls between May-Sep.
