Littlefield Manor Wedding Photography

Late summer wedding at Littlefield Manor

It seems like an eternity ago when I first spoke with Jennifer. I couldn't have imagined back then how much fun this wedding was going to be. Like many weddings this year this was third time lucky. The two other dates the weather was awful and for the actual wedding date it was glorious, hallelooya!

Jennifer was with the girls in the picturesque Running Horses pub and was made to feel so welcome from the start. I could sense the love in the air for Jennifer as soon as I arrived. Jennifer has alopecia and told me on the run up to the wedding that she was undecided whether she would wear a wig for the actual wedding. She decided to do some portraits in the morning to show what it meant to wear her wedding dress in the face of alopecia and I was so glad she did and was honoured to do the photos. Oli meanwhile in the morning was nearby at his parents home with his family and groomsmen. It didn't seem long at all till we were all at the church.

Oli was looking mighty fine if a little nervous at the church waiting for Jennifer to arrive. The service itself was beautiful, some really heartfelt speeches and some fantastic live music which wasn't the only music I was going to hear during the wedding. These guys left the church in style and were whisked away to Littlefield Manor for the reception.
Littlefield Manor in Guildford is a wonderful venue set in the countryside with gorgeous views and perfect for a wedding celebration. I love being a surrey wedding photographer when you have venues like this on your doorstep. We were treated to more live music while drinks were served until everyone was called to the amazing marquee for the wedding breakfast, Before that though we had the speeches and they were so much fun. Lots of laughs, tears, smiles and to top it all off Jennifer brought the house down with a song for Oli. I was blown away, this girl has talent! Also if Strictly want another dancing couple then *ahem* look no further than this twinkle toed couple. Dance-floor owned right there, Tunes were popping all night and the dance-floor was the place to be!


Congrats to two of the loveliest people I've had the pleasure of photographing. Hope you enjoy this little sneak peak from your day.
Great to work for the first time with blank canvas weddings

Pembroke Lodge Gorgeous Summer Wedding

Summer Wedding at Pembroke Lodge

It felt so good to be photographing at Pembroke Lodge again in the summer sunshine. The grounds and gardens here are so good whatever time of the year. I love that year on year the flowers change complementing the views which are spectacular. Paul and Julia looked absolutely fantastic, so elegant and smart. They looked like movie stars!

My day started with Julia at the finishing touches of her makeup, the vibrancy and colours of her outfit were gorgeous. The level of detail on Julia's hands was outstanding.

Belvedere Suite Weddings

The Belvedere suite here at Pembroke Lodge is a light magnet! Basically whatever the weather you get great light which is a massive plus for your photography. Julia was accompanied down the isle by her mum and blew all the guests away with how stunning she looked. Paul was keeping it very cool at the business end of the Belvedere. The registrars for Surrey are amazing and it was a beautiful and entertaining ceremony which ended in a stream of confetti as our couple came back down the isle.

Did I mention how stunning the grounds were looking, it's worth mentioning again! I took the newly weds for a short walk in the grounds to get a few portraits

With Julia heading for an outfit change it was a chance for some last minute speech rehearsing form Paul. It was no suprise when he nailed it. It wasn't a surprise either that Julia looked stunning when she changed outfit either. It was a touching moment having Paul see her as she walked round the corner of the lodge. After a great meal and some heartfelt speeches I had a chance to take the guys out for another little walk before ending with drinks on the terrace.

What a great day, loved every minute. Pembroke Lodge is a great venue and I love photographing there as you can see from my Pembroke Lodge blog. Check out the gallery. If you are planning your wedding it would be amazing to speak to you and find out more about your plans.

Winter wedding at Pembroke Lodge

Pembroke Lodge Winter Wedding

Pembroke Lodge is a stunning Georgian mansion set in the tranquility of Richmond park which was lovingly restored for public use. It is now one of the top, most popular wedding venues in Surrey. Being a wedding photographer in Richmond I get excited when I photograph here even on the very wettest days like it was here. Danny and Claudia were such sports who braved and embraced the rain.

I couldn’t wait to get started and arrived at the Petersham hotel where Claudia and her bridesmaids were getting ready for the day. The hotel is ideally placed near to the entrance of the park and offers some fantastic views of the river and surrounding fields. Meanwhile Yasmina who was assisting me was with the boys was at a local pub where a lot of the guests were gathering.

Wedding Photography at Pembroke Lodge

Time flies on a wedding day and it wasn’t long till we were at Pembroke Lodge. The ceremony itself was a wonderful occasion, the Belvedere suite is full of natural light and a great room for a civil ceremony.

After the ceremony Danny and Claudia braved the rain while we had some great music from Wildfire Duo keeping the celebrations going at full swing.

There was a great touch when Danny and Claudia entered the room for dinner and Danny pulled Claudia her first drink as a married woman as the guys met years ago when Danny was behind the bar. He even did a twenty minute shift later in the eve, dedication there Danny! Great speeches followed the meal with a highly polished slideshow from the best men. It went down a storm and highlighted the fact of how awesome these guys are.

It was a absolute pleasure to be part of Claudia and Danny’s pembroke lodge wedding and hope you will treasure forever the photographs and enjoyed this glimpse of your day.

Richmond Weddings

Richmond is local to me and I love photographing weddings here. I also love spending my free time here. I’ve done many walks around the region, ate in many of the restaurants and drank in numerous bars and beer gardens. I’ve created this page just to give a few tips on where to have photos, where you can get married and where you can park. For advice and more information on getting married in the borough of Richmond then the Richmond government website is a great place to start.

Richmond Wedding Venues

Pembroke Lodge Weddings

There are a number of breathtaking venues all across Richmond. Pembroke Lodge is an extremely popular venue located inside Richmond Park. With the option to get married upstairs in the Russell suite or in the Belvedere suite with direct access to the terrace you can’t go wrong. there are beautiful landscaped gardens for some amazing photo opportunities whatever the weather.

The Bingham Weddings

The Bingham is a fab boutique hotel and restaurant a stones throw form the river thames. You can actually get by the river through a door at the end of the garden. Weddings just ooze class here. the room are amazing and the garden is a great feature and feels very secluded. There’s no parking at the hotel. Look below for some handy tips for parking when attending a wedding here.

Petersham Hotel Weddings

The Petersham hotel is a classy, sophisticated venue. You feel like you’re in the countryside. Especially if you are lucky enough to be staying in the honeymoon suite. As you can see the view from the balcony is unbelievable. You will definitely want your morning coffee looking at that view. If not coffee why not treat yourself to afternoon tea downstairs in the hotel.

The Richmond Hill Hotel is another great venue in Richmond. Excellent for a quick trip into the park. The hotel is a great spot to stay and get ready if you are getting married elsewhere in the area as is the Richmond Harbour Hotel next door. I can recommend The Gate which is the bar in the hotel itself. The decor is just so cool and is a great spot for a drink. The beer garden here is an absolute gem.

Further away but still in the borough of Richmond I can recommend Strawberry Hill House. This place just reminds me of a castle from a disney movie. The rooms are steeped in history and can hold a small intimate wedding. For larger weddings a marquee can be used on the lawn.

Photoshoot locations in Richmond

You’re lucky if you are getting married in many of the brilliant venues in Richmond as many have private grounds to shoot in. There are also many other open spaces that you can use.

Richmond Park being the most well known location in Richmond. It’s open everyday for pedestrians 24hrs apart from the deer culling months of November and February when it is open between 7.30 and 8pm. For vehicles the gates open at 7 in the winter and 7.30 in the summer and close at dusk so anytime between 4 and 9 depending on the time of year. Although a very popular park with its 2500 acres it’s easy to find your own part of the park. You might have to share it with the deer though, if you’re lucky! It’s a really fantastic spot for engagement shoots and wedding shoots. For weddings I would advise looking into a photography permit which costs £120. More information can be found on the Richmond council web site.

Photoshoot Locations London

I love photographing at Richmond Hill and the Terrace Gardens. My favourite view in London is from the viewing point on Richmond Hill overlooking the thames. It’s such a stunning sight. The terrace gardens are a hidden gem, well not exactly hidden but quieter than Richmond park. The trees and foliage make for stunning backdrops for engagement and wedding shoots. The colours change from season to season and there never is a bad time of year to photograph there. The gardens lead all the way down to the river also which is another great photoshoot location. There are some beautiful spots all along the river going towards Twickenham. It’s one of my favourite walks in London. You pass by Marble Hill Park which again is another great photo location.

Parking for weddings in Richmond

Being such a popular borough to be married in as well as being densely populated with residential properties, parking can be an issue at times in Richmond. There is plenty of parking at Paradise Road Multi storey and the NCP car park by Richmond station. There is also a car park at the station itself. These are a little walk from some of the popular wedding locations, but could be an option if you are a guest and are meeting people before the ceremony. Off street pay as you go parking is available in some streets and I’ve highlighted some of these in the map below. A lot of the streets are residents permit only so be careful not to park there. Most of the hotel venues in central Richmond like The Petersham Hotel, Richmond Hill Hotel and Richmond Harbour Hotel all have parking on site. Do you have to pay to park in Richmond park? The answer for that is no, the parking is free at the numerous car parks in the park. They can get full quickly though. There is a car park right next to Pembroke Lodge.

I’m looking forward to sharing more images from the exciting weddings I have coming up. The beard might be gone by then though, I fully embraced the lockdown look and the studio selfie. “
