This journey to forever began at Pembroke Lodge wedding venue in Richmond Park. The day unfolded as Sophia and Jackson readied themselves at The Petersham Hotel, setting the stage for a memorable celebration of love in a beautiful and natural setting.

It was a massive honour to document this wedding after receiving a recommendation from guests at a wedding I had the pleasure of photographing last year. Everyone was so excited for this day and their family played an important role in making it magical.

Seeing Sophia and Jackson again after their Lewes pre-wedding engagement photography just made my heart so happy. These two have the biggest hearts and I’m so happy they found one another.

They sent me the nicest card following their wedding day.

“We cannot begin to tell you how grateful we are for all the amazing work you did for our wedding. From learning names to the engagement shoot to making everyone feel so comfortable on our wedding day. You truly captured such amazing and magical moments that we will treasure forever. Thank you so, so much.”

And Sophia’s mum wrote me the nicest review on Google, which is always such a delightful surprise when I get a new one!

There literally are no words that can adequately describe how I feel about Kelsie & her amazing photography

She captured my daughter’s wedding so perfectly, with photographs so stunning, that they instantly bring me back to the day & fill me with emotion

Yes maybe it could be argued that I’m naturally biased as MoB BUT this view has also been echoed independently by all the wedding guests & even those who didn’t attend but have viewed her photos
As one person said ‘these photos are truly special, just magical’

She is also super professional & takes control without ever being overbearing or dominant – and that’s a very difficult vibe to pull off … especially with the strong characters in our families!

Honestly I have seen some gorgeous wedding photos throughout my life but none come even close to the raw emotion that Kelsie’s photos manage to capture.

She also did so much work prior to the wedding day. Her research into both families (committing names/relationships to memory) & asking my daughter & partner so many questions – was astonishing & again we reaped the benefit of her knowledge on the day.

Thank you so so much Kelsie – we will be forever grateful.

Sophia and Jackson’s wedding at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park was a celebration of love and tradition. From the anticipation at The Petersham Hotel to the heartfelt ceremony at St. Andrew’s Church and the enchanting reception at Pembroke Lodge, each moment contributed to a day that will be cherished for a lifetime.

Pembroke Lodge Wedding Photos

Nestled in the heart of Richmond Park, Pembroke Lodge Wedding Venue provided a timeless backdrop for Sophia and Jackson’s wedding. Surrounded by lush greenery and breathtaking views, the venue created an idyllic atmosphere, making their day truly special.

Have a look at the slideshow sent to the couple to share with their loved ones, and scroll on to see some of my favourite images of the day.

The ceremony took place at the historic St. Andrew’s Church, a place rich in significance as it was where Sophia’s parents had exchanged their own wedding vows. This connection to Sophia’s family history added an emotional depth to the celebration, complemented by the serene ambiance of one of the prettiest church’s I’ve photographed in.

Situated just a short drive to Richmond Park’s Pembroke Lodge, St. Andrew’s Church allowed for a seamless transition to the post-ceremony festivities. The drinks reception took place on the stunning patio at Pembroke Lodge venue, providing guests with a glorious view.

The proximity of The Petersham Hotel, St. Andrew’s Church and Pembroke Lodge made it easy for Sophia and Jackson to enjoy a relaxing wedding day.

The resulting images from their day showcase the beauty of the wedding venue, the genuine emotions, and the classic elegance that defined Sophia and Jackson’s Pembroke Lodge wedding. Scroll to see some of my favourite photographs.
