Comments from Paul Martin:

The indisputably elegant Cambridge Cottage is a fantastic wedding venue in Kew near to Richmond, in Surrey. The River Thames, is less than 10 miles from Central London. Recognised as one of the most beautiful gardens in the country, Kew now hosts functions within the elegant interiors of Cambridge Cottage, a private entrance leading from Kew green into this 18th century Grade 2 listed building. The grandly spacious lounge with large French windows leading on to the landscaped Dukes Garden holds up to 80 people for a civil ceremony. The room benefits from excellent natural lighting, thus enabling unobtrusive photographic coverage; (I have never had to employ the use of flash photography, thus minimising intrusion on proceedings).

Sip champagne on the lawn, surrounded by over 300 acres of magnificent gardens. A sophisticated and tranquil venue, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, is the ideal setting for your special day. Available all year. Maximum number of wedding guests for the marriage ceremony 82. Maximum number of guests for the wedding reception 150.

As a member and regular visitor to Kew Gardens, I know the situation well, and the best locations suitable for taking wedding photographs. To this end, I have particularly enjoyed the opportunity of producing varied and very creative wedding photographs throughout the Gardens. Whilst recognising that it is simply not possible to photograph bride & groom at all the sites, I have successfully captured a good overview of Kew on exclusive 20 minute shoots, within easy access of Cambridge Cottage. I have taken small parties of wedding guests on shoots at various locations nearby, but, it is generally not practical to attempt to take guests into Kew gardens for group shot. The gardens surrounding Cambridge Cottage are more than adequate, providing sufficient variation. However, the Kew explorer ‘train’ is a good option to consider for taking your wedding guests on a quick and informative tour of the gardens. This is an option you can discuss with your event organiser.

Photographs appearing are of two weddings shot at Cambridge Cottage. I also have two complete demo-albums of weddings photographed at Cambridge Cottage. Needless to say, Cambridge Cottage is a fantastic venue in Kew for amazing wedding photography! As an additional incentive for Cambridge Cottage bookings, I am able to offer you as a free extra, a pre-wedding photo shoot at Kew Gardens.
