Fiona & Ross - Pembroke Lodge - Richmond - London

Welcome to Fiona and Ross’s stunning wedding day.

I met Fiona at a wedding fair in March, that same evening I was booked to shoot their wedding on August 23rd 2014.

 We met again in May to do a love story shoot, it was such a great day, and gave us all time to learn more about each other, you can see Fiona and Ross’s Love story here.

Fiona is a journalist and Ross a lawyer, They chose the stunning Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park to host their reception; I had never shot this location, but am so happy I have now! The natural light that streams through this venue is truly amazing, Matched with the beautiful views from the patio and with Richmond Park across the road, bathed in golden sunlight, Pembroke Lodge is a truly stunning wedding location. 

Bridal preparations took place at the Xander Hotel in Ealing broadway, as per usual a great way to start a wedding, documenting from the beginning and capturing the first moments of the wedding, the finer details, and watching the emotions unfold. 

This was a truly magical wedding. The Ceremony took place at St Matthews Church in Ealing Common, Perhaps not the finest on the outside, but on the inside it was a beautiful touching ceremony. 

We moved on to Pembroke Lodge for the reception, with use of the patio basking in beautiful sunshine I captured some beautiful candid photos of these two interacting with there guests. With a Scottish theme to the wedding, Fiona and Ross were called to dinner with bag pipes. A brilliant speech by Ross, truly set the tone of this wedding day, full of love, laughter, and beautiful memories of those that couldn't be there.  We had planned to do their formal portraits when the sun was going down! a great decision.  

Congratulations Ross and Fiona, It was a beautiful wedding, Thank you for allowing me to be an important part of it! You can check out more of their day here.

I am always a fan of the ring shot, I always like to try something new, I think this one worked really well. Beautiful Flowers supplied by Everything is Rosy. Im also a fan of beautiful shots of the dress! I think this worked really well, I saw this between to partially open doors, with a beautiful pool of light falling on the bed below.

A stunning day turned on by the weather gods. With large windows in the hotel room, I had such amazing light to work with and create these beautiful preparation shots.

I love the Photo Journalism side to a wedding, the moments captured that no one else sees, Like the very first image of Ross sneaking a kiss from his new wife before they enter for dinner.

Richmond Park is such an amazing place for portrait work, with so many location options, light streaming through trees, It sometimes feels like your not in London, but i guess that proves the diversity of this amazing city.
