Recently I had the pleasure of carrying out some more documentary wedding photography at the DeVere Latimer Estate in Buckinghamshire. This was the second of two weddings I was engaged to assist friend and colleague Rex Preston at. (The other one was Lisa and Jeff’s wedding at Haselbury Mill). The DeVere latimer Estate has stood on the site in one form or another of Manor House since 1194 according to records and since then has served as home to nobility and also as a top secret intelligence centre during WWII. Today after much refurbishment the place is a blend of contemporary style and character heritage design.
We started on the morning of the wedding with Mei Mei and Andrews separate preparations for their big day. I briefly visited Mei Mei with Rex to say hello and then moved on to catch up with Andrew’s prep with the groomsmen. From there the day went off smoothly albeit with a delay or two here and there but it can’t be helped when so many people are coming together to celebrate something like a wedding. Guests packed the ceremony room for the ceremony after which a a traditional tea ceremony was held for the couples immediate family members to give and receive symbolic gifts and wish them good fortune. A wedding breakfast, speeches, a band and dancing followed.
So without any further ado; my take on Mei and Andrew’s wedding photography at the DeVere Latimer estate (and yes I’ve gone shamelessly black and white until we hit the dancefloor just because I can)!
If you’re getting married at the DeVere Latimer Estate or anywhere else for that matter why not drop me a line and we can have a chat about what I can do for you.
