Pembroke Lodge Wedding Photography

Dongying and Apostolos were actually married back in May this year, but wanted to celebrate thier wedding with their families so organised a wedding reception at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park, Surrey. The day was a real mixture of cultures and with Chinese and Greek influences making their mark throughout the day.

Here's a few pictures from the day:

Surrey Wedding Photography, Nicola & Josh, Virginia Water

Northbrook Park Wedding Photography

Nicola and Josh are getting married next year at the fabulous Northbrook Park near Farnham in Surrey. Northbrook is fantastic for wedding photography and I'm really looking forward to shooting there again. They chose Virginia Water for the pre wedding shoot, I haven't been there for years so it was and had forgotoon what a good location it is with the waterfall, follies and lake. I'll certainly be suggesting it again as location for a pre wedding shoot!

Northbrook Park Wedding Photography, Georgie & Rich, Farnham, Surrey

Northbrook Park Wedding Photography

Georgie & Rich were married at Northbrook Park. After the wet start to the summer I'm getting used to shooting in the sunshine again. It was a fabulous day and there's no better venue on a summers day than Northbrook, the gardens looked stunning, and make the ideal venue to enjoy a summer wedding!

Surrey Wedding Photography, Karen & Damien, Pennyhill Park, Surrey

Pennyhill Park Wedding Photography

A beautiful sunny morning for once, just as well as Karen & Damien were getting married in the gardens of Pennyhill Park. Unfortunately, the skies steadily got cloudier during the morning and finally it seemed to start to rain the moment that Karen stepped out onto the terrace with her Dad! Luckily the rain didn't come to much or last very long so I think everyone breathed a huge sigh of relief. Pennyhill Park did a fantastic job and it was an absolutely fabulous music and fun filled day, with Sinatra tribute, Paul Holgate getting in the swing with everybody dancing (and singing) even before the wedding breakfast!

Northbrook Park Wedding Photography, Lucy & Chris, Farnham, Surrey

Northbrook Park wedding photography

Lucy and Chris' wedding day at Northbrook Park was a fabulous day. The weather was changeable but we  swapped things around a little and really appreciated the sun when it did make an appearance.

I've been lucky enough to shoot at Northbrook a few times this year and not only find it amazing how stunning the gardens look each time but how the colours change so much with the seasons. It's such a great place to shoot.

Here's a few images from Lucy and Chris' wedding day at Northbrook Park:

Surrey Wedding Photography, Jo & Mark, Painshill Park, Cobham

Painshill Park Wedding

Jo and Mark were married at the Sacred Heart Church in Cobham, Surrey. It was a beautiful service with some lovely moments. It was lovely to touch to remember Jo's Dad by the lighting of a candle, I think everybody ( including me ) had a tear in their eye.

The reception was held just up a few miles from the church at Painshill Park. Jo and Mark opened a bottle of champagne before being driven there in an amazing VW Camper Van. 

The weather was fantastic, the surroundings were beautiful, and the atmosphre was brilliant. We had a few group shots to do before taking Jo & Mark for a drive round Painshill's stunning grounds in a golf buggy to take a some photographs of them alone.

Here's a few images from the day:

Northbrook Park Wedding Photography, Mithi & Chris, Farnham, Surrey

Northbrook Park Wedding

There was so much to look forward to with Mithi & Chris' Wedding Day, 180 guests, a church ceremony, a Hindu ceremony, Saree's, Goan Curry for the wedding Breakfast, Cocktails, Hog Roast, a fab band... Plus Mithi and Chris had done so much themselves. They had made all of the invitations, brownies for after the church, "Lazy Susans" for all the tables, the table centers and a whole lot more. Not only did everything look brilliant but all their touches made it personal and very special.

Surrey Wedding Photography, Mithi & Chris, Winkworth Aboretum, Godalming

northbrook Park Wedding

I met up with Mithi and Chris for their pre wedding shoot at the Winkworth Aboretum. By pure coincidence I've been here twice in nearly as many weeks, and it's amazing how much changes in such a short space of time.The blossoms are out in force now and it looked stunning.

Mithi & Chris have a fantastic wedding day planned at Northbrook Park near Farnham in Surrey and I'm really excited at the prospect of photographing it already.

Here's a few images from Winkworth:

Surrey Wedding Photography, Amy & Max, Woodlands Park Hotel, Cobham

woodlands Park Wedding

I had the very great pleasure of photographing Amy and Max's fabulous wedding day at the Woodlands Park Hotel near Cobham in Surrey. The week hadn't started too well for Amy & Max, not only had their little boy Harry, had been ill for most of the week but one of the flower girls had fallen out of a tree and her resulting broken arm was in bright pink plaster! Someone came up with idea of wrapping it in matching purple ribbon so it actually ended up looking great.

It really was a brilliant day, a loveley warm atmosphere and lots of fun. Heres' a few images form Amy & Max's Woodlands Park Hotel wedding day:

Surrey Wedding Photography, Karen & Damien, Winkworth Aboretum

Pennyhill Park Wedding

I think it was Damien's Dad who had suggested Winkfield Arboretum near Godalming for their pre wedding shoot to them.  It's a fabulous place for photography so I was very happy to spend a fantastic Sunday morning wandering through the trees and round the lake photographing Karen and Damien. They are getting married in June this year at Pennyhill Park near Bagshot in Surrey, another beautiful location and, weather permitting, they'll be getting married in the Hotel Gardens.

If you've not visited Winkfield  before, then go. It's such a beautiful place to visit at any time of year but especially in spring as the spring flowers and blossoms are absolutely stunning!

Hampshire Pre Wedding Photography, Georgie & Richard, Basingstoke Memorial Park

Northbrook Park Wedding

I met up with Georgie and Richard for their pre wedding shoot at The Basingstoke Memorial Park, It's the first time I've visited the park but I'll definitely go back there to shoot again, with the spring flowers, woods and skate park there's lots of variety. I even got asked if they were celebrites when we were doing the shots in the skate park.

Georgie and Richard were a pleasure to photograph and I'm really exited about photographing their wedding at Northbrook Park later this year!

Surrey Wedding Photography, Lucy & Chris's Pre - Wedding Photography

Northbrook Park Wedding

Lucy and Chris chose Pewley Down in Guildford, Surrey for their pre wedding shoot. They live pretty close to it and it sounds like they spend a fair amount of time relaxing here so it seemed fitting to do the engagement shoot here. If you've not visited Pewley Down before it's certainly worth a visit, it's a beautiful place with spectacular views over Guildford!

They are getting married later this year at Northbrook Park near Farnham in Surrey. Northbrook is one of my favourite local venues  (I'm fortunate enough to have a few weddings to photograph there this year) so I'm really excited to be shooting Lucy and Chris's big day.

Sarah and James' Northbrook Park Wedding Testimonial

northbrook park, surrey wedding photographer

We have finally (only just over 6 months, so not too bad) got round to choosing the photo's for our album. The main problem was you took so many fantastic photos which we have enjoyed going through over and over again that it makes it hard to trim them down! Now that it is several months later it is great to be able to look back at your photo's which perfectly captured all of the main (and minor) parts of the day and caught the mood perfectly. We still get comments on 'what a nice guy the photographer was' and how you were the perfect balance of being part of the wedding and in control without taking over. I can't believe you will ever be short of bookings but we would be delighted to recommend you or give a reference to anyone.

Surrey Wedding Photography, Sarah & Ben's Pembroke Lodge Wedding Photography, Richmond, Surrey

St Peter's and Pembroke Lodge Wedding Photography

This was my last wedding of 2011 and it was great to finish the year with such a fabulous day.

Sarah and Ben were married at St Peter's in Richmond by Father Tim Harwood who was so friendly and helpful. With a 2:00 ceremony and a 4:00 sunset we had to make use of the available light so we did the big group shot in St Peter's straight after the ceremony so his help was really apreciated - Thank you! We then headed up the hill to Pembroke Lodge to do the shots of Sarah and Ben before the sunset.

I also wanted to say a quick thanks to Nelson and his team at Pembroke Lodge for doing a fabulous job and to Dan Neatherway of From the Hip videography for helping me out with the lighting. Looking forward to seeing the video!

northbrook park wedding

I had the very great pleasure of photographing Carrie & Scott's fabulous wedding day at Northbrook Park near Farnham in Surrey. A little bit of extra pressure for me, as not only is Carrie a close friend but she is also a fabulous photographer.

They had planned a fantastic day at Northbrook with lots of lovely touches and family involvement. Scott's brother did the catering (wow, stunning food!) Auntie Alison sung in the band, Marc Tavener did Caricatures, Devonshire cream Gin & Tonics? Shortbread and Scotch plus lots more!

Surrey Wedding Photography, Lindsay & James' Clock Hall Barn Wedding, Godalming, Surrey

clock hall barn wedding

Lindsay got ready at the Manor House Conference Centre which is where my day started, I love shooting the bridal preparations, such a lovely atmosphere and a great opportunity to get to know Lindsay's family.

As we headed off to the Guildford Registry Office for the ceremony the morning had become a gorgeous sunfilled autumn day, you really wouldn't have known it was the end of October! The wedding breakfast was held at Clock Hall Barn near Godalming in Surrey, the venue looked fabulous and again there was a lovely friendly family atmosphere. Champage, canapes and group shots before Lindsay, James and I wandered around the grounds getting a few shots of just the two of them before the wedding breakfast.

Surrey Wedding Photography, Amy and Max's pre - wedding photography at Frensham Pond, Surrey

Amy & Max are getting married next year at the beautiful Woodlands Park Hotel in Surrey but they chose Frensham Pond near Farnahm for their engagement shoot. It's certainly a beautiful place to spend a Saturday morning taking pictures. I think they were a little worried about having their picture taken but they soon relaxed and we go some beautiful shots.

Here's a few images from the morning's walk:

Testimonial from Sam & Adam - Thank you

I would highly recommend you stop looking for a photographer for your special occasion, You will find no better person than Jon. We didnt have a photographer for our engagement shoot or wedding we had a friend. The professionalism shown before, during and after our day was second to none.
 
Add to this the exceptional quality of our wedding album, and the aftercare provided by Jon, which is almost non existent in the world today.
 
Nothing was too much trouble for him. the way he mixed with our freinds and family and put us all at ease during the day was incredible. I would be more than happy to provide a reference or show you our wedding album.
 
Thanks again Jon for providing the memories for the best day of our lives.
 
Adam & Sam

Carrie & Scott are getting married in November at Northbrook Park near Farnham in Surrey and I have to admit that I'm actually a little scared! Carrie is a wedding photographer too and a vey good one at that, which always adds a little extra pressure.

One thing for sure is that with all of her experience of weddings she'll have a fabulous day planned so whilst I am a little nervous I am also really looking forward to what I am sure will be a fantastic day!

Here's a few of the pictures from our shoot at Little Frensham Pond near Farnham in Surrey:
