Wedding Photography at Pembroke Lodge – Crystal & John
Wedding Location - St James' West Streatham Church, London |
Reception Location - Pembroke Lodge, Richmond
Once again I had the amazing opportunity to photograph another outstanding wedding, with a fabulous couple no less! Allow me to introduce Crystal & John – who stumbled upon the magnificent Pembroke Lodge last year, nestled within the royal grounds of Richmond Park. Their wedding was at the beginning of spring, culling season was in full swing (for the deer, not the cyclists) and mother nature was getting into her stride (hence the culling). Would I be able to get through the day without being hit by a stray bullet? Seriously.
Firstly, Crystal is one of the smiliest people I have ever photographed! I know it was her wedding day and all that, but still massively impressive and a joy to be around. John was so chilled, and up for pretty much anything… including galavanting around Isabella Plantation looking for the good light (we found bucket loads).
The ceremony took place at St James’ West Streatham Church and was lead by Rev Rob “throw as much confetti as you want” Powell, who turned out to be a bit of a legend! Nothing was ever a problem… can I stand on that chair? Sure. Can I have the chair? Go for it. Top man, top people! *Note to the people of St James’ – sorry I got mud on the chair, I tried to clean it after – the legs sank down into the lawn (don’t ask). Also, sorry about the lawn.
Pembroke Lodge was magnificent, mainly due to being a lovely building in amazing surroundings… but from a wedding day standpoint, the staff were on top of everything! It’s not often a wedding runs perfectly on time, but these guys had it down! Crystal & John put on a great show, and just about everyone was an amazing dancer, what a great party! Loved working with you guys! Enjoy the highlights!
