My last wedding of 2016 was this Richmond Hill Hotel wedding with Amy and Daryl. What a gorgeous day it was. It was a frosty, foggy morning, but the sky was blue and clear. It really warmed up as the day went on. Again I was working with my partner in crime Steve Urwin. I generally work with the bride so I was with Amy and her bridesmaids while Steve was with Daryl and his fellas. They were both staying at the Richmond Hill Hotel which makes things a lot easier for us photographers. The hotel itself is great! It is at the top of Richmond Hill and is right next to the terrace which has breathtaking views of the River Thames and the surrounding area. You can even see Twickenham Stadium from there.
As a Richmond Wedding Photographer I love working locally. I know all the best spots to get great photos. After the ceremony we did the group shots on the terrace with that great backdrop of the river. Once they were done we took a few more of Amy and Daryl, who looked fantastic, in the same spot and then went for a little walk along the terrace. There are some lovely gardens and a water feature with arches a minutes walk from there. On the way back Steve swore blind that we walked past Dame Judi Dench!
Sunset was at 4pm so while everyone was eating I went outside to see what it was like. I took one look at it and rushed back inside to get the bride and groom. Amy and Daryl were great sports and we got some wonderful sunset photos. After the wedding breakfast it was back out on to the terrace again for some fun with sparklers. Then it was time for the first dance and for the evening guests to join the party, oh and did I menion there were Showgirls there? Showgirls! What a brilliant wedding, from start to finish! Congratulations Amy and Daryl!!
