The Bingham Riverhouse – Wedding Photography – Emma & Steve

A Bingham Riverhouse Wedding

Emma & Steve held their wedding at the Bingham Riverhouse in Richmond in the height of summer. It was my huge pleasure to be their wedding photographer at this romantic house on the river.

Emma and the bridal party got ready at the Bingham and I loved the light and airy space for photographs.  We then made great use of the staircase for some iconic bridal portraits ahead of the wedding.

The Bingham Riverhouse is a stunning wedding venue.  Emma and Steve chose to take over the whole house for the day, but you can also hire the venue on a semi-exclusive basis.

The civil ceremony was held downstairs in the garden rooms. After the vows were made, the wedding guests were led outside to the terrace and gardens for the wedding reception. 

It did rain slightly, as it often does even at a Summer wedding.  Luckily the heated canopied terrace kept the guests dry while they listened to the speeches and watched the release of the wedding doves. 

Before the wedding breakfast, I spent a few minutes with Emma and Steve exploring the grounds around the Bingham Riverhouse.  We also stepped out on to the Thames path outside for a few informal portraits. I always try to keep this time to around 15 minutes to allow the Bride and Groom to get back toe their wedding party and enjoy their day.  With some many photography options available in close proximity, the Bingham was a great venue for this approach to couple’s portraits.

I popped into the kitchen to watch Chef Shaunak Singh  prepare the seasonal wedding breakfast – which I also got to try – delicious!

The evening dancing was raucous and I am so glad I stayed until the very end to see the Bride and Groom make their way through confetti cannons and into the night.
