Weddings at Pembroke Lodge

This is the first of a series of posts about some of our favourite wedding venues. We are very lucky to have shot at many venues across the breadth of the South East of England and right at the top of our list would have to be the fantastic Pembroke Lodge, which nestles in the heart of Richmond Park in Surrey. We’ve been fortunate to shoot there a few times now, and have photographed weddings both at The Belvedere and The Russell Suite, the 2 locations for weddings at this venue. I think you can tell we love shooting weddings at Pembroke Lodge!

About the Venue

Pembroke Lodge is a superb listed Georgian Mansion that has been painstakingly restored to cater not only for weddings, but also as tearooms for the general public.

The venue is situated at the highest point in one of London’s most revered and loved locations- Richmond Park. If you are lucky enough to visit Pembroke Lodge you will also be able to take in some of the most breathtaking view across the Thames Valley, and this is certainly one of the big attractions of this venue for couples.

The park itself is actually the largest park in London with some 2300 acres of parkland, and it has a really unspoilt feel to it. The park is also home to a great deal of wildlife including deer.

Why we love shooting there

Of course one of the main reasons we love shooting at Pembroke Lodge is the stunning location- Not only are the surrounding gardens absolutely beautiful (check out some of the portraits below) but also the park itself lends itself to some really stunning portrait locations. The building itself has a really light and airy feel to it which looks great in photos. We have to say as well that the every time we have shot there the staff have been attentive, friendly and very professional. It’s really important that the wedding co-ordinators and staff at your wedding are professional and responsive; this factor is just as important as any aesthetic considerations.
