Pembroke Lodge in Richmond is a very special wedding venue especially if you are planning an Autumnal wedding. If you have never visited this gorgeous gem of a place for tea and cake, I urge you too. Pembroke Lodge is situated in the heart of Richmond Park and makes for a lovely winter wedding venue.
Maybe it’s the sweeping views across Surrey that make this winter wedding venue so appealing? Or that the people who work here really are fantastic at laying on everything you could want for your wedding day celebrations. Either way, I just love photographing weddings at this venue.
Claire and Mike are unique. They are a dreamy couple who, when they look at each other you know they are a perfect match.
In their pre wedding day consultation they really wanted a documentary style approach to their Autumn wedding day. Prefering to have more candid wedding photography images than posed. This is exactly what we practised when we met for their pre wedding photoshoot. We decided to meet in Richmond Upon Thames, as this makes a really lovely backdrop.
Claire stayed at The Richmond Gate Hotel the night before her wedding. It was a very relaxed morning and we had plenty of time to capture some candid moments. As you can imagine the bride was beaming from ear to ear when she put her wedding dress on.
This was an Autumnal wedding at Pembroke Lodge. The wedding ceremony was beautiful, the weather was fabulous and the speeches were legendary.
I love it when the bride makes a speech! Weddings grip people and it really does bring the best out in people. Claire did a fabulous job in not only making everyone laugh with her humour – but moved the room when talking about the love for her husband.
This lovely couple really wanted the emotion and feelings captured from the whole winter wedding day. All the little moments that they will miss together and separately. Candid wedding photography that will tell their story from start to finish. Pembroke Lodge do amazing weddings…thanks to all the staff that make it such an amazing day and evening. An incredible day and evening. Claire and Mike I wish you every happiness for your future together.
Here are my favourite images from your very special day………enjoy x
