Pembroke Lodge wedding photographer

Pembroke Lodge wedding venue

Pembroke Lodge is a lovely Georgian mansion that sits at the highest point of Richmond Park and the view makes it one of the most stunning places to have in your wedding photos. At golden hour, just as the sun is setting and you can see right over the park, the setting is unreal.

Pembroke Lodge wedding photography

As a Pembroke Lodge wedding photographer, I know how to get the right shots in the right places to make sure you have the best snapshot memories of your big day. My photography style works well with the peaceful environment of the lodge and park, as well as capturing beautiful moments of you and your loved ones. Be sure to check out this black tie wedding gallery if you are considering your wedding at Pembroke Lodge.

Pembroke Lodge- Belvedere suite wedding photography

The venue has two different suites that can accommodate various sizes of your wedding party: the Russel Suite and the Belvedere Suite. They both have space for outdoor ceremonies.

Thomas and Tabitha chose to use the Belvedere suite for their wedding. Here’s a showcase of my Pembroke Lodge wedding photography

In this suite, the wedding couple held their ceremony and later in the evening, turning it into the reception and dance floor.

Accommodations for your getting ready photos

If you are looking for separate accommodation for getting ready on your wedding day, here are two options chosen by many of the wedding couples I have worked with. I’m not link with either of these hotels directly but they have made for some beautiful photo opportunities.

Richmond Hill Hotel

Richmond Hill is home to the Georgian Suite, a spacious and luxurious space for you to prepare for your big day. At only a 13-minute drive away from Pembroke Lodge, and with free parking, The Hill is the perfect distance for your wedding party and other guests to get easily to and from the venue. They have an award-winning restaurant and bar with a 100+ gin selection for you to relax in during your stay.

Petersham Hotel

Overlooking the Thames is the Petersham Hotel. Again, only a 13-minute drive from Pembroke Lodge, and with free parking, it is an ideal spot for your wedding party to get ready for the day ahead. There are many elegant rooms and suites to choose from. View the gallery of the bride- Minh, getting ready in the Junior Suite, a gorgeous space to relax and capture the perfect getting-ready photos.


Confetti throwing is allowed at the Pembroke Lodge in the Belvedere but not outside, as Richmond Park is part of The Park Trust conservation Law.

The best confetti to use is the white paper type rather than flower petals as the former floats longer in the air and captured much better in the photographs. Read more about the confetti types here.

Wedding exit at Pembroke Lodge

There are various options for your wedding exit but two of the most popular types are sparklers and bubbles!


Using sparklers in your wedding send-off makes for spectacular photos! Have your guests form two lines and use their sparklers to create a shimmering archway for you to walk through. Remember to buy lots of lighters and pass them around your wedding party.

Instead of sparklers, you can use bubbles instead! This is such a fun and different way to get your guests involved in your wedding exit. This is best captured during blue hour or you can capture it earlier during the extended daylight in summer. We will work together to create the best photograph to capture the moment.

Night photography at Pembroke Lodge wedding

As the evening draws in it allows for a different style of photography. Photography at night can create a more editorial and edgy look.
