Latimer House Wedding 27th July 2018

Beautiful Chantelle & the lovely Warren got married at the stunning De Vere Latimer House estate on friday 27th July in front of all their friends and family on what was the hottest day of the year so far! Everyone was baking but in good spirits, although we did have some wandering folk during the formals (as always happens !) but I soon rounded them up with a little patience…   Not long after the extreme heat the monsoon rains opened up and we had a short and brief downpour which only slightly cooled things down.  The grounds here are stunning and we headed for the shade for the portraits of the bride and groom – it was just too hot to be in the sun.  I had the most fabulous day with the couple and the staff were also really welcoming.  Here’s just a few photos of their wonderful day!

Julia & Ben’s Engagement Shoot

Such a fantastic time shooting Julia & Ben’s engagement shoot at Latimer House  however the unbelievable house this week has seen the lush green grass turn yellow so it almost looks beach like when they sat in the deck chairs.  Under the trees though you can find much wanted shade and greenery – which is where we headed! phewy….  I love doing these engagement shoots as such a fab opportunity to get to know each other in advance of the big day.  I highly recommend doing one if you are hesitating.  It is so beneficial plus you end up with a great set of photos of the two of you looking all beautiful, natural and relaxed.

Latimer House 

I visited this beautiful venue today and can highly recommend the newly redesigned Latimer House as a superb choice for your wedding. It has been done with utmost attention to detail and is both contemporary and stylish too. Located right by the River Chess it is scenically gorgeous. I am also now a recommended supplier and totally thrilled about this. Staff were also ultra friendly. A great sign! Here’s just a few photos of this wonderful wedding venue.
