Sam and Tom’s perfect wedding day was earlier in the year at Pembroke Lodge, Richmond, Surrey. I was recommended to Sam for wedding photography by a friend of hers whose wedding I had covered a couple of years back at the Manor of Groves, in Hertfordshire. Pembroke Lodge is a stunning Surrey wedding venue situated in Richmond Park, and I first met Sam and Tom there last year. At the time, as well as getting to know each other better, we explored the places to take the group and couple photographs and this really helped on the day itself.
The wedding day dawned with clear skies and sunshine. I met the Sam and her bridemaids at a nearby hotel where they were getting ready. It was a very busy environment and I got some great shots including one where they all posed as “Charlie’s Angels”. After a lovely ceremony, there was a drinks reception and then the breakfast, followed by speeches and cake cutting. I then took the couple away for a few moments for a little photoshoot in front of the Georgian mansion before taking some group photographs on the scenic grounds. As the evening closed-in, the couple had their first dance, after which I said my goodbyes and left them to party the night away!
