Emma and Phillip’s Wedding Day was full of joy and fun!  The rain could not dampen their joie de Vivre.  After the Wedding Service in Pembroke Lodge photographs were started in the porch.  Suddenly there was a break in the rain and Elaine Mayson of Elaine Mayson Photography managed to take atmospheric photographs of the couple in the grounds of Pembroke Lodge.  She also photographed all their group shots outside close to the porch.

St Andrew’s, Surbiton & Pembroke Lodge, Richmond Park, Surrey

013aBen and Amy were married at St Andrew’s church in Surbiton. Ben arrived early with all his ushers and best men.  I caught up with them as they entered the church on that mild late November morning.The bridesmaids arrived next and the excitement mounted in anticipation of the bride’s arrival. Amy wore a glorious vintage style dress with stunning train and a stylish hat with veil.


The couple arrived at Pembroke Lodge and Elaine Mayson one of the venues recommended photographers caught a fun moment.  The light was fading but all the family photos had been taken at the church.  This meant there was just enough time for Elaine to photograph Amy and Ben in the locations they wanted before entering the warm and welcoming Lodge.

Silvermere ‘Inn on the Lake,’ Surrey

310aZara and John met up with Elaine Mayson Photography a recommended photographer at the venue in 2015 to discuss their wedding.  They told me they had booked Silvermere ‘Inn on the Lake’ because of the beautiful location by the lake.  They also found the staff friendly and their wedding breakfast room large and light, perfect for all their guests.  Saturday 4th July was a popular day for weddings and the weather did not disappoint.  The sky was blue and the sun shone. Zara delicate slim with large doe shaped eyes was a dream to photograph and so too was her handsome husband.  My assistant and I escorted the couple to a special designated spot where wedding couples can take advantage of the wonderful views over the lake but not risk a golf ball flying into their face.  A truly memorable day with lots of fun and laughter.
