Pembroke Lodge Wedding Photography

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

Pembroke Lodge is a stunning wedding venue situated in 11 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens in the heart of Richmond Park.

It is surrounded on all sides by ancient trees and grassland and home to a vast amount of wonderful flora, fauna and wildlife.

As well as a great place to spot deer, squirrels and parakeets, it also has stunning views over the Thames Valley.




As a preferred and recommended Pembroke Lodge wedding photographer, I am able to photograph many lovely weddings here...

In all seasons, so I know the best vantage points for beautiful, romantic and fun pictures, whatever the weather is on your big day.

Whether it's in amongst the daffodils in spring, or in the colourful and beautifully scented picturesque gardens in summer...

Or in the ever changing colours of autumn with all its shades of golden yellow and orange the dark and cold depths of winter...

There's always a wonderful story to be told.

Pembroke Lodge - A fascinating history

Pembroke Lodge started life back in the 1750s as The Lodge, a single room cottage inhabited by a mole catcher.

Enlarged and renamed Hill Lodge in 1787 it was granted to the Duchess of Pembroke who added a Georgian wing to it.

In 1847 it was passed onto the then Prime Minister Lord John Russell who used it to conduct business affairs.

He was also know to entertain such well-known writers as Dickens, Thackeray, Tennyson, and Longfellow.

It later became the home of Bertrand Russell, the famous philosopher and mathematician who grew up there between 1876 and 1894.

During the 2nd World War it became a Regimental HQ and then a government-run tea room.

The Hearsum family took over the lease of Pembroke Lodge in 1997 and carried out comprehensive restoration work.

They also began collecting thousands of fascinating artifacts connected with Pembroke Lodge and Richmond Park.

The final phase of the restoration work involves the proposed setting up of a visitor information centre to house all these finds.

Today, in addition to its ever popular tea-rooms, it's a well established and highly regarded Surrey wedding venue.
