Latimer Place Wedding – Nick & Claire

After a busy year it’s time to get this blog up to date. I’m going back to the Spring and my first chance to photograph a Latimer Place wedding. Just into Buckinghamshire it’s a short drive from my home in Hertfordshire, which is always a bonus, and the drive there takes in the narrow lanes through the rolling countryside on the edge of the Chilterns.

Latimer Place Country Hotel Wedding Venue

The hotel itself is set high above the Chess Valley, and it’s an area I’ve walked and cycled through many times. It’s one of my favourite parts of the Chilterns so it was a real treat to photograph a wedding here. We had clear blue skies so, although not always idea for photographs, the bride and groom, Claire and Nick, couldn’t have asked for better weather.

Claire didn’t want any getting ready photos so coverage started outside St Mary Magdelene church in Latimer shortly before the ceremony to capture some natural photos of the guests arriving. Unusually the church is in the grounds of the hotel so instead of having to then drive or get on a coach to the reception, it was a short 1 minute walk away. A real bonus for guests and a big time-saver on the day.

Nick had two best men, something I did at my own wedding, and I’ve seen this trend a little more over the last few years. If nothing else, it means they can double up on the speeches, meaning maybe a few less nerves and make more of a double act when it’s time to embarrass the groom.

Natural & Unposed Wedding Photography

When I first met Nick & Claire they were looking for mostly natural, unposed images of the day with a few groups and some bride and groom Portraits. It perfectly fits how I look to shoot and after they wedding they sent me the following:

“We’ve just watched our wedding photo slide show and they are absolutely brilliant!! Thank you! The attention to detail and ‘story’ of our wedding is clear and we are delighted we chose you to photograph our special day. So much emotion captured! We will be recommending you to everyone!!”

It really means so much to me to receive comments like this from my couples. Nick & Claire, it was a pleasure to be part of your day.
