Aka my top 3 venues from 2013.
Last year has been a beautiful one, we’ve had a proper summer here (probably the first real summer in 4 years) and the amount of weddings shot under the pouring rain was minimum. The Bear and I got to travel quite a bit all over the UK (and a bit of France even – where, ironically, it rained on the day) and we’ve shot weddings in a few new venues we hadn’t been before.
So I thought I gave credits and hugs where credits and hugs are due. Here’s my picks for my top 3 venue from 2013.
BELVEDERE, PEMBROKE LODGE – RICHMOND (LONDON)
This is a bit of a daydream place. It’s situated in the heart of Richmond park, surrounded by woods and with a breathtaking view. Sarah and Michael chose it because Richmond Park is one of their places.
Both the ceremony and the reception happened indoor, a beautiful bright room with white walls, topped by a glass ceiling on one side. The staff has been absolutely fantastic in arranging the place between the ceremony and the reception whilst all the guests were having their aperitif on the terrace, enjoying live music under a very mild and pleasant sun. Then re-arranged everything after the breakfast whilst coffee was being served outside, and turned the very same room in an incredibly pretty dancefloor.
