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.

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.

When I get an enquiry for photography a Pembroke Lodge wedding, my eyes instantly light up with excitement. It's a stunning wedding venue in leafy Richmond Park with panoramic views over the River Thames. Whether you're in the Belvedere suite or the Russell suite, the staff really go the extra mile to make the day so special. Tegan and Andy's wedding was slap bang in peak season over the Bank Holiday weekend which was surely the hottest wedding I've ever photographed. An issue we don't always have to deal with!

Tegan prepared for her wedding in nearby Teddington with her bridesmaids while Andy was at his family home. that is where my fabulous second shooter for the day Deji caught up with the boys. I love capturing the events of the morning. There so much fun and nervous excitement is flowing everywhere. Having both the bride and groom's mornings photographed really adds to the overall story of the wedding day.

Emotive Wedding Photography

I absolutely love seeing those raw emotions during the ceremony. It's definitely a privilege to photograph these occasions. This was a celebration that had plenty of heartfelt moments . From the second Tegan's first bridesmaid entered the room till that march back down the Isle there were so many touching moments

Let's talk about that light, beautiful sunshine was in abundance all day. Thankfully there was number of shady spots for all the guests to gather during the day while from the early evening it was an absolute pleasure to be outside and gorgeous for photography. Tegan and Andy were superstars and rocked the time we had together in the gardens. So much laughter and love was captured. It really is a joy photographing these special moments knowing that these will be looked at for many years to come.

The room in the Russell suite looked perfect. The already stunning ambience was enhanced with very classy looking floral decorations and a cake from a British bake off winner none the less. Lots of laughs could be heard from this room during the speeches which had us all entertained.
