Petersham Hotel & Pembroke Lodge Wedding in Richmond


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.

Emma’s sisters and Mum were there to help with her dress and her shoes. Anticipation and happiness show in their faces at the beginning of this special day.


The Petersham Hotel in Richmond, Surrey is famous for its regal spiral staircase so a quick photo shoot with the bridal party on the stairs was obligatory.


Dad to the rescue.  Rain on your wedding day brings lots of luck so they smiled and enjoyed the moment.
