Pembroke Lodge Wedding Photography

Pembroke Lodge is situated in 11 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens in the heart of Richmond Park and is surrounded on all sides by ancient trees and grassland. Home to a vast amount of flora, fauna and wildlife such as deer, squirrels and parakeets, it also has stunning views over the Thames Valley.

If you are looking for an experienced and specialist Pembroke Lodge wedding photographer then look no further. 

As a preferred and recommended Pembroke Lodge wedding photographer, I get the wonderful opportunity to photograph so many lovely weddings here every year, in all seasons, so I know the best vantage points for beautiful, romantic and fun pictures whatever the conditions.

So under the trees amongst the daffodils in spring, walking through the beautifully scented picturesque gardens in summer...or just taking in the ever changing colours of autumn when the trees turn all shades of golden yellow, orange and red...all exciting wedding photography opportunities.  

With friendly, helpful and professional staff, who we have a great relationship with, everything is set up to make your Pembroke Lodge wedding truly magical.

A Pembroke Lodge wedding photographer's perspective

What makes Pembroke Lodge such a great wedding venue and one that you love returning to is its unique and wonderful location. Beautiful flower filled gardens, verdant backdrops and stunning views give you endless wedding photography opportunities.

From Mole Catcher's Cottage...

Starting life in the 1750s as The Lodge, a single-room cottage inhabited by a mole catcher, it was later enlarged and renamed Hill Lodge and granted to the Duchess of Pembroke in 1787 who added a Georgian wing to it.

...To Prime Minister's Office

In 1847 it was passed onto the then Prime Minister Lord John Russell who used it to conduct business affairs and entertain writers such as Dickens, Thackeray, Tennyson, and Longfellow. Later it became the home of the famous philosopher and mathematician, Bertrand Russell who grew up there between 1876 and 1894.




During the 2nd World War, it became a Regimental HQ, then a government-run tea room until in 1997 it was taken over by The Hearsum family. Along with comprehensive restoration work, the family also started collecting thousands of fascinating artifacts connected with Pembroke Lodge and Richmond Park.

Today, in addition to its popular tea-rooms, the well established Pembroke Lodge wedding venue is a highly regarded and much sought after place for couples to get married as well as for wedding photographers to shoot at.



Woodland to Thames Valley

Walking alongside the large formal South Lawn complete with borders of bright coloured flowers, then past the delightful and welcoming Woodland Garden and around to the Belvedere Terrace with its wonderful views over the Thames Valley... a delight for wedding photographers and their newly married couples.

Beautiful Flowers and Views

Then out along the drive takes you past borders bursting with colour, green lawns and over to the beautifully heavy scented rose arbour, combining a riot of colour with a calm and peaceful haven to sit and relax amongst nature. Then on past bold and colourful formal flower beds, with wonderful views over Surrey and London. All perfect opportunities for some truly romantic and memorable wedding photography.



If there's time you can also pop over to the romantic John Beer Laburnum Walk and up to the popular Kings Mound for some  stunning views over London including St Paul’s Cathedral.

On the way back, looking down into the dense Richmond Park you may catch some passing deer and if you fancy a walk on the wild side, you can descend into the untamed ferns and long grass for even more photo opportunities. 




There's something very special about getting married at Pembroke Lodge…you feel it as soon as you enter Richmond Park gates...and as you cross the cattle grid the excitement mounts as you near the end of the drive and those distinctive white walls come into view...

Getting Married at Pembroke Lodge - what to expect

There are two lovely, welcoming Pembroke Lodge wedding rooms to choose from, each special in their own way.
The Belvedere, which is the larger and the more contemporary of the two and The Russell Suite, which is more intimate and comes with original Georgian features.

Belvedere wedding photography

The Belvedere is situated on the ground floor at the back of Pembroke Lodge and seats up to 140 guests for the marriage ceremony and wedding breakfast and can accommodate up to 200 guests for the evening celebrations.

Purpose-built, it has plenty of natural light from the terrace window which allows for intimate photo opportunities during the ceremony. After walking down the aisle as husband and wife, usually through a shower of confetti or bubbles, the happy newlywed's exit onto the welcoming terrace for celebratory drinks and canapés.

Guests here can enjoy the wonderful atmosphere and stunning views and it provides plenty of scope for some nice relaxed, informal reportage wedding photography.

In the warmer months, there is also the option to have your ceremony out on the Belvedere Terrace complete with those beautiful backdrops, always a popular option for a wedding photographer, with the extra space and more varied view points.

During the speeches there is space to walk around taking pictures and a heaving dance floor provides plenty of action photos of everyone having fun.

Russell Suite wedding photography

The Russell Suite is situated on the first floor of the Georgian Wing of Pembroke Lodge and is perfect for more smaller occasions with a capacity of up to 70 guests.

The marriage ceremony and wedding breakfast are held in the Lord John Russell Room which is blessed with natural light from two sides. During the service the couple face a large bay window which provides the opportunity for lots of well lit, intimate pictures.

There is also the option to have your ceremony out in the lovely Woodland Garden with its verdant backdrop. The must have shot for any Pembroke Lodge wedding photographer is of the bride walking down the aisle from the main building.

During the room turnaround, guests can venture outside to the picturesque South Lawn and Woodland Garden for drinks and canapés complete with an outside bar, which again provides some nice reportage photo opportunities.

If you want to stay indoors, there is exclusive access to the adjoining Bertrand Russell Rooms and bar, a relaxing, tranquil space with views over the Thames Valley.

Guests return again to the Russell Suite for the evening celebrations in The Phantom Room with music and wild dancing and more fun packed pictures.

Meet the Surrey wedding photography Team

Richard

After a fun career in marketing and advertising agencies, where I honed my creative, business and client skills, I turned in 2007 to the world of wedding photography. 

I love being a documentary wedding photographer, for me it's an all consuming affair and one that is always rewarding. After 15 years and over 500 weddings I still find every one a unique and exciting event. To me it’s not just a job, it is my passion.

Your wedding day is such a special occasion and there will be lots of unforgettable moments that you will want to look back over, again and again. As your trusted and experienced Surrey wedding photographer (I have shot weddings of all sizes, in all venues and all weathers) I will be there capturing all the big important moments that you would expect as well as all those little moments that you never saw or noticed.

I am always focussed (pun intended) on providing you with a wealth of stunning, heart-felt emotional moments and memories that will make you smile with happiness and that you will cherish forever. Always very well presented, I am friendly, cheerful and helpful so you can relax in the knowledge that I will blend in with all your guests and be a truly valuable addition to your day.

"Richard you have a lovely way of making people feel at ease, and many of our guests commented on this"

Tina

Having been a professional, full-time wedding photographer for over twelve years, Tina now concentrates her time in the studio, editing all our wedding images, designing wedding albums and ordering prints, an area that she is passionate about and which perfectly suits her previous interior design skills.

Keeping everything in-house in this way also means we don’t keep our couples waiting longer than they should to see the wonderful picture story of their wedding. We also let you know the date when your photos will be ready to view so you don't have to chase us for an update and we pride ourselves on presenting them on time.

If you want to talk about dresses and make-up then Tina's the one to have a chat with and if you want to talk about anything else, then myself or Tina are here at hand to answer any questions you may have.

Larry

Larry is our incredibly skilled IT geek.

As well as helping us design and constantly improve our website he keeps our systems ticking over nice and smoothly so that everything works tickety-boo.

When Larry is not working with us he is an accomplished full-time artist, exhibiting his eye-catching work in the UK and around the world.

We can't say anymore though or show his face, he's a bit of a Banksy.
