Pembroke Lodge is a lovely Surrey wedding venue situated in Richmond Park that we have worked at for many years, covering ceremonies and celebrations in both The Russell and The Belvedere Suites.

Pembroke Lodge - A  short history

Situated in 11 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens in the heart of Richmond Park, Pembroke Lodge started life in the 1750’s as The Lodge, a single room cottage inhabited by a mole catcher. It was later enlarged and renamed Hill Lodge and 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 and entertain such well known writers as Dickens, Thackeray, Tennyson and Longfellow. It was later to become 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, then a government run tea room and today it is privately run and is open to the public and is a popular Surrey wedding venue.

The Hearsum family took over the lease of Pembroke Lodge in 1997 and along with comprehensive restoration work 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 in the derelict land that is adjacent to the current car park.

Pembroke Lodge wedding photography opportunities

The Belvedere Suite, situated at the back on the right hand side of Pembroke Lodge seats up to 140 guests and can accommodate up to 200 for the evening celebrations and has direct access to the terrace with those wonderful views and picturesque gardens. With live music being played whilst champagne and canapes are being served in the sun the terrace provides plenty of opportunities for a relaxed and informal style of reportage wedding photography. When the weather isn't great for being out on the terrace then guests can move over to The Soane Room which is ideal for guests whilst the Belvedere Suite is being turned around.

 

 

The Russell Suite, situated up on the first floor is perfect for more intimate weddings and can accommodate up to 70 guests for the wedding ceremony and up to 100 for the afternoon and evening celebrations. With access to the picturesque gardens at the front and the lawn and tree area on the left hand side there is also exclusive access to the adjoining Bertrand Russell Rooms and bar, a pleasant and intimate space with wonderful scenic views.

Having captured weddings here in all seasons we know the best vantage points for stunning, natural wedding pictures. Whether that's under the trees in amongst the daffodils and tulips in spring; walking through the beautiful scented blooms in the picturesque gardens at the front during summer; or at anytime of the year down on the terrace with its wonderful views over to the City of London:
