Comments from Paul Martin:
Pembroke Lodge is a magnificent Georgian Mansion, situated on one of the highest points set in some 2500 acres of Richmond Royal Park with spectacular views across the Thames valley to Windsor and Surrey. The private grounds include King Henry V111’s mound and the Lodge has eleven acres of beautifully landscaped grounds.

As a wedding venue, Pembroke Lodge has much to offer, and can cater for events of varying size; depending upon your requirements, there are several function rooms.
Belvedere Room –Since May 2001, the facilities of the Lodge have been greatly enhanced by the addition of the new Belvedere Room. This room embraces part of the north wing of the Lodge, attached to form an internal area of superb beauty and design. The Belvedere is a purpose designed function room which seats up to 140 guests and combines classical elegance with modern facilities. It leads directly out onto the terrace with lovely views of the Thames Valley to the west. The room comes complete with classical arches, vaulted ceilings and a two storey light well above the top table. The combination of a starlight ceiling and themed fibre-optic lighting provides a unique atmosphere at whatever time of year.

The Russell Suite, situated on the first floor of the old Lodge, has recently been completely renovated and offers an exquisite ambience with enhanced views of the Thames Valley. The Russell Suite consists of the following three rooms:-
The Lord John Russell Rooms – These adjoining rooms are licensed for civil ceremonies and can seat up to 70 guests for the civil ceremony and the reception meal.
The Bertrand Russell Rooms – These adjoining rooms are ideal for reception drinks. A bar will be set up for evening relaxation.
The Phantom Room – Complete with a dance floor, this room is ideal for the evening party. Sound and lighting systems are provided

Pembroke Lodge is one of my favourite wedding venues in Surrey, owing to its ’embarassment of riches’ for fantastic wedding photography. I have photographed in all the function rooms, and I have complete portfolio’s of weddings I have photographed at Pembroke Lodge. No matter the season, I have always managed to secure very beautiful photographs in the surrounding gardens, which are maintained to a very high standard.

Needless to say, I recommend Pembroke Lodge as a fantastic wedding venue and for unique and memorable wedding photography. As an additional incentive, I provide all clients with a thorough recci of the venue, and a pre-wedding shoot in the Gardens at Pembroke Lodge.
