Blog

Welcome

Welcome to my blog, where I share some of my favourite and most inspirational weddings in more detail. Richmond Pictures is a photography collective headed up by Karina Lax, a Photographer based in Sheffield, Yorkshire, close to the Peak District, Derbyshire. Specialising in gentle, natural and authentic photography. Prefered Supplier at Kew Gardens, Great John Street Hotel Manchester and Bluecoat Gallery Liverpool.

Kew Gardens is a venue like no other. The elegance and beauty and seasonal changes mean we're really spoilt for choice, and no two weddings are ever the same. Since we began photographing weddings and events in 2013, we've discovered so many new locations, and it's exciting to keep discovering Kew with new couples. I love that Kew is rammed to its glasshouse rafters with history and scientific importance too - there's no shortage of interesting tales and mini facts to share with your guests before the wedding, and on the day too.

I've put together a little guide with photographs of some of our favourite places around Kew. There are lots of other beautiful spots too - it's really impossible to include them all - so perhaps a Part 2 will be needed some time in the future! For now, please enjoy these images, and drop me a line with any questions that might pop up.  I hope they'll provide you with some lovely inspiration.

The beautiful Nash conservatory is a photographer's dream as the entire spacious room is bathed in even light throughout the year.

View across the lake to the Glasshouse

We think of this as the classic Kew wedding photograph location, where couples often choose to begin their photographs. We always personalise this for you as above, where Priscila and Nirmal wanted an intimate feel to their pictures. This spot works well at all times of year.

loading...

The Wisteria Arch near to th Princess of Wales Conservatory is just perfection. The picture above was taken in April, so if your wedding is around that time, fingers crossed, you might be lucky!

loading...

A fun arrival idea - by boat on the Thames! Especially good if your guests have travelled from far and wide. The Thames cruisers can start in central London and take in the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, London Zoo to name but a few.

loading...

The use of the golf buggy is really useful to travel between locations, and aside from that, its novelty appeal is immense! 

Discuss with the events team how far you'd like to go for your pictures - some of the spots are quite far away (such as Queen Charlotte's Cottage) and extra time may needed to be added to your schedule if you'd like to include them. 

loading...

loading...

Cambridge Cottage is so elegant and ideal for smaller weddings. The lawns surrounding are a gorgous eclectic mix of English country garden and hints of the tropics. Juat a few meters' stroll and in August you'll come across this gorgeous lavender, which works really well with our 'shoot through' technique.

loading...

Temple of Aeolus

This pretty little folly is snook away near to the Glasshouse lake location, and close to Cambridge Cottage. It's also just in sight from the rose garden too. It's one of our favourite spots as it's lesser known, and the lightness of the stone and design of the structure create a gorgeous frame that compliments portraits.

loading...

Another sweet little folly near to the glasshouse is Temple of Arethusa, a war memorial. In spring and summer the borders give it a lovely soft feel, and in winter it's often lit beautifully as part of the Christmas light show.

loading...

The Mediterranean Garden and King William's Temple is a great spot if you're a fan of a palm tree or two (who isn't?!). The temple is a really great location as it's two sided, and the interior is a lovely light sandstone so provides a natural and cool backdrop. 

loading...

If you're getting married in April, you may be in luck. When the cherry blossom is in bloom it's hard to beat its beauty. 

loading...

Sackler's Crossing created a gorgeous vista. If your wedding is in the Orangery, it's not too far away. We suggest  adding this location if you have a good amount of time for your couple portraits.

loading...

Christmas at Kew

If you're planning a wintery wedding, December is awash with creative sparkle with the Christmas at Kew light and sound installations. It's a magical time of year to be there, and provides unique photo opportunities such as the spinning heart seen here.

loading...

The Redwood forest is one for an extended couple shoot as even by golf buggy, it's a long hike! It's worht every moment though - it feels like another land and the light that sneaks through the evergreens is enchanting.

loading...

What will we do if it rains?

Kew is so special in that it's a very outdoorsy feeling venue, but with an array of indoor opportunities. The Glasshouse is incredible to shoot in, although it can be challenging too, as the atmosphere is very wet which can steam up lenses and play havoc with loose hair styles! If you love it in there though, extra time can be added and we're guaranteed some breathtaking shots. 

loading...

Another incredible indoor spot is the Marrianne North Gallery. Permission has to be granted to shoot in here, but if the weather looks a bit quesitonable, it's an inspiring place to spend a few minutes and achieve some dramatic pictures.

loading...

I'll finish off with a gorgeous shot of the Orangery at night. Wherever possible, we love to complete the storytelling of your wedding with a beautiful shot like this. 

Thanks for reading  - and if you have any questions, please drop me a line - I love to help :)

Dissertation critique elements
on
November 1, 2019, 7:44 pm
said:
A critique of a dissertation includes a brief summary in order to make the readers easily grasp the main thoughts and proofs of the passage that is under examination. The critique of a dissertation comes in various sizes and shapes. It is essential to carefully read the passage and make plenty of notes and ask a number of questions. It is impossible to critique something without even understanding the chosen topic. The introduction should persuasively and clearly state the thesis of the author and the arguments related to it. The introduction should provide the reader with a little background in order to make that person understand the worth of writing the dissertation critique elements. A brief summary should also be drafted. It can be included in the draft of the critique. Adequate transitions should be used in order to maintain a smooth flow of the writing. The presentation of the author should be analyzed thoroughly. The reader should be provided with an in-depth analysis of the logical reasoning of the author and his use of evidence. Presenting the information for easy understanding is essential, by using transitional elements whenever it is necessary for preserving the smooth flow of the writing. You should agree or disagree with the viewpoint of the author and this is where you make your own views clearly on the issue.
