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.
Wedding Photography at Pembroke Lodge
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.
