Wedding Photography at Pembroke Lodge
Rachel and George were married on the sunniest day I think we have had this year. 30th May in Richmond Park was a beautiful place to be for their wedding photography at Pembroke Lodge.
Sunday in the Park with George
Yes Rachel married George in the park on Sunday, and it was a fitting and lovely moment when she and a few friends gave an impromptu rendition of the Sonheim musical number “Sunday in the Park with George” – just one of many sublime moments that made this one of the most special weddings I have had the pleasure of photographing.
Music, Family & Love
When I asked Rae to give me three words to describer her wedding she said that this was a difficult ask for someone so verbose, but came up with MUSIC, FAMILY and LOVE. These happened to be three words that I think summed up her day just perfectly. From the congregational singing of Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles during the civil ceremony to her and George’s Thank You duet that they played along to on their ukeleles, this wedding was full of music! Even the decor and cake continued the theme.
It was also a wedding that really sang of vintage inspiration. Rae’s beautiful Fur Coat No Knickers dress was absolutely stunning on her, and I loved George’s dapper suit and bow-tie. Friends and family were clearly a massive part of Rae and George’s big day, with many involved in the songs, music and poetry that permeated their wedding. And as soon as Rae and George had finished their first dance it didn’t take very long at all for everyone to be up and dancing to some great folk music.
At sunset, I took some pictures of Rae and George in the park, and now have decided I want to photograph more red headed brides at sunset. Just glorious. Rae said during our mini-shoot, “I think that what you photographers feel about light is what I feel about cake!” Quite right! Though I am partial to a nice slice of cake as well as photos at sunset! Thanks to the amazing Emanuela Redaschi for second shooting with me and being an amazing assistant!
