Richmond Wedding Photography
I love being a Richmond wedding photographer, it is such a beautiful part of London!
The summer London wedding of Emma and Graeme was simply a joyful celebration of two people in love. The venue for the day was Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park. Out of many wedding venues around West London, the Pembroke Lodge must be one of my favourites.
It is not too far if you live in the city and surrounded by beautiful Richmond Park, with its amazing greenery, majestic oaks and ferns, as well as a huge number of deer. I remember visiting there so many times years ago trying to get that perfect shot of a deer in a mist. My best effort can be still found online right here.

Richmond is just a great place to visit, live and of course to photograph weddings.
It is an affluent residential district right by the River Thames. Beautiful Kew Gardens brings botanical enthusiasts and families with its huge Arboretum, 17th-century Kew Palace, and panoramic views from its Treetop Walkway. A large number of deer roam Richmond Park, a popular place for family picnics.
And the perfect backdrop for photos, whether it is wedding photography at Pembroke Lodge or engagement photos in the Richmond Park itself. The Quadrant main street and nearby roads have eclectic shops, casual and upscale dining, and performances at Richmond Theatre.

It was really amazing to see the bride and groom together surrounded by their closest friends and family in such beautiful surroundings of Richmond Par, the Pembroke Lodge. Most of the celebrations for the day were planned outside. But, as it often is with the British summer, the skies opened half an hour into the wedding ceremony.
And it kept on raining pretty much non stop until the end of the wedding day. That, of course, did not dampen the mood in a slightest and happy atmosphere dominated all the way through the wedding. Also, I really like shooting in the rain, getting the hair a bit wet with some cool umbrellas as props! And last but not least Emma looked absolutely stunning in her dress from Cutting Edge Brides!
I would definitely recommend Richmond if you are in search of a great part of London to get married in. And if also in search of a wedding photographer feel free to get in touch so we can have a chat about your day. Perhaps by an afternoon tea at the Pembroke Lodge itself!
Wedding Photography Richmond by Blue Lily Weddings
As any other wedding I would photograph I approached this Richmond wedding in my Blue Lily Weddings photojournalistic approach. I let the bride and groom enjoy their wedding day with their wedding guests. I was there simply to document it on the camera as it happened in an unobtrusive and beautiful way.
As a Richmond wedding photographer my goal was to create an absolutely gorgeous set of wedding photos. Those wedding images, when looked at, would transport anyone looking through them to the wedding day and make them feel as if they were there as a wedding guest. All the moments, like the wedding ceremony, the vows, the first kiss, cutting of the cake and the first dance were captured on camera.
But most importantly the small in-between wedding moments were photographed too. That is especially important for anyone who attended this Richmond wedding. More so the bride and groom who by looking through those Richmond wedding photos could be transported to those moments and feelings, reliving their beautiful Richmond wedding once more through the Blue Lily Weddings photographs.
If you like this set documented by your truly Richmond wedding photographer, please get in touch for a chat about your wedding day!
