Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park, London was the venue for the third wedding in last weekend’s trilogy. An Anglo/South African and Turkish celebration for Selen and Ross.
The day started with blue skies and was warm but as the day progressed the weather surprisingly changed. The cloud cover increased and a breeze came across the terrace overlooking south west London. A sudden shower prompted a dash inside early into the Belvedere restaurant before the wedding breakfast was due. The rain then threatened the firework display after the meal but thankfully held off for everyone to gather on the terrace and watch the colours shooting up from Richmond golf course.
The day began with preparations for Selen, her parents and bridesmaids at the Bingham hotel – in a room with a view. Overlooking the river Thames and Richmond bridge. Plus another wedding custom – the Turkish practice of writing the names of single friends by the bride on the bottom of one of her shoes. At the end of the evening, the name that has worn off the most, is the name of the next bride!
