James and Maria’s stunning Pembroke Lodge wedding, with Liam Collard Photography

Published by Claire Gould on

James and Maria’s celebration was a day filled with joy and love, a beautifully elegant London wedding with stunning styling touches. We adore Maria’s dress and the incredibly beautiful train with buttons all the way down to the hem. The florals are simple and beautiful with white roses for the bridal bouquet and romantic pinks for the venue arrangements. James and Maria are breathtaking in their wedding attire and this is such an incredible day – we hope you will love it too! All images are by Pembroke Lodge wedding photographer Liam Collard Photography. Liam is based in London and travels worldwide to capture unforgettable weddings in his artistic signature style.

Maria began her day at the picturesque Cannizaro House, nestled at the back of Wimbledon Common.

The morning of their big day had a touch of London charm, as James met up with friends at a local pub. What made it even more iconic was that he donned his tails and traveled to the venue via the underground. A truly unforgettable start to the day!

The wedding itself was a beautiful affair at a nearby Catholic church. Maria arrived in style, making her entrance in a classic wedding car, and they continued on to Richmond Park for a magical reception.

Pembroke Lodge was the chosen venue for their reception, and they had the pleasure of enjoying their special day in the private entertaining area The Belvedere. This spacious area accommodated 130 of their closest friends and family.

Mother Nature graced them with the best that English summer has to offer, with beautiful weather and a spectacular sunset over the Surrey countryside. This backdrop provided the perfect setting for some stunning photos, capturing candid moments that will be treasured forever.

While they opted not to have a videographer, they did have the talented Mikey JC, a wedding singer who serenaded Maria with a famous Italian song, paying homage to her Italian roots. It was such a fun and heartwarming moment that had all the guests waving their table napkins in delight. Mikey also took on the role of DJ, turning the evening into a lively and memorable party.

The reception was complete with a cake cutting ceremony and heartfelt speeches. Many guests ventured out to the terrace for most of the evening, enjoying the warmth of the night and each other’s company. It truly was a day filled with love, laughter, and cherished memories.

As always, we’ve saved some favourite photos from this beautiful London wedding to share with you on instagram. Don’t miss them!
