This is the beautiful and classically British wedding of Julia and James. I started out the morning at Julia’s mum and dad’s beautiful house where I could see lots of creativity and I just knew that would flow through to the wedding. Julia’s mum designed the stationary, Order of service, table plan and place cards for the big day and it was truly beautiful. I love the little personal touches and bits that are crafted with love by loved ones and you could see the effort Julia’s mum made with these.
The ceremony and celebrations took place at the ever beautiful Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park. I love this venue. Not only is it gorgeous but the staff are always amazing!! Everything was absolutely perfect.
The ceremony was really beautiful and very heartfelt….there may even have been a little tear in my eye!! I think James was very excited to have married his girl!
One thing I will remember forever is the huge outpouring of love at this wedding….oh and the speeches…they were hilarious!!!
As I often like to do we left the majority of the couple shots until later in the day so that Julia and James could relax and enjoy some time with their lovely guests and it was lovely to head off together for those shots after the meal….although the walk back up to the lodge nearly killed this little photographer….time to join a gym I think!!

On Wednesday Katie and Rob got married at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park. It was the first time I had ever visited the park but I was blown away…..it’s so beautiful!!
We started the day in Katie’s family home which I utterly fell in love with, so vintage and so gorgeous! I literally could have taken photo’s there all day!!
Katie then had an original black cab (as a nod to Robs dad who is a cabbie) to take us over to the lodge. I always love travelling with the bride as it means I can document the journey…..it can make for great shots!
Despite concerns about the weather it held and everybody got to enjoy drinks on the terrace after the very emotional ceremony, which was finished off by everybody having a sing song…..perfect!
Katie and Rob opted for a book theme which they carried off perfectly by giving every guest a book as a favour. I didn’t ask but now I know these guys I am sure that they thought long and hard about each and every book for each guest and picked ones that suited them.
It really was an amazing day and I have to say a huge thank you to the staff at Pembroke Lodge who made us feel really welcome and looked after us so well, the attitude of the staff says a lot about the place and these guys were wonderful!!
Finally, thank you Katie and Rob for allowing me to be part of your day, it was emotional and beautiful, and full of smiles…..and that’s what it should all be about!
