Richmond Wedding Photographer | Francesca & Paschalis

I love a Petersham Hotel wedding. It’s quite common that a bride will get ready at the Petersham and then go to other local venues such as Pembroke Lodge for their ceremony. This is purely because the hotel only caters for small intimate weddings. Francesca and Paschalis had just 21 guests for their big day.

I had met Francesca before the wedding at her lovely ‘Eat Me, Drink Me‘ cafe in Hammersmith. With an early ceremony, there was plenty of time for everyone to just enjoy the day and there was no pressure at all. It was such a lovely relaxed day. We even had time to go and see the cows at Petersham Meadows. I hope you enjoy this small selection from their day. Also, check out their amazing cake made by a friend of Francesca’s

I love hanging wedding dresses off unusual places. The Petersham has one of the best staircases in the country!
