Steeped in history and sitting elegantly in 30 acres of beautiful parkland in the heart of Buckinghamshire, De Vere Latimer Estate offers the most memorable setting for same-sex couples to say 'I do’. Being located a stone’s throw from central London but in the heart of the Chilterns, De Vere Latimer Estate truly is a hidden gem and has been referred to as Buckinghamshire’s best kept secret. The property boasts a rich history dating back over 800 years, with stories sure to impress wedding guests. The house even played a part in code breaking and military intelligence during WW2, earning the name ‘Britain’s most secret home’.
Landscaped gardens surround the stunning Victorian mansion house, with exceptional views across the Chess Valley – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Inside, the house has undergone a £7m refurbishment to add 21st century comfort and style, whilst complementing the original character of the property – the perfect blend of old and new. Our beautiful Cavendish Suite can be easily divided into two rooms, creating space and flexibility. With access to the outside terrace and enjoying spectacular views of the rolling countryside, this suite is fully licensed for civil ceremonies, providing the perfect setting for both your wedding ceremony and breakfast for up to 180 guests.
At De Vere Latimer Estate, we know that planning a wedding day is exciting and enjoyable, but it can be daunting. Our dedicated wedding team are always on hand to guide, advise and answer any questions that couples have, to ensure that they can relax and enjoy their special day. We work with couples to make their dream wedding a reality. Our wedding coordinators pride themselves on delivering exceptional personal service. From the very first contact with a couple, they take the time to get to know them and ensure that they understand what their vision is.
They ask every couple detailed questions to ascertain what the most important aspects of the big day are for them. We offer wedding packages but pride ourselves on being able to offer flexibility, so couples can really personalise their wedding and make their dreams a reality. We can add unique and personal touches to their day, injecting the couple’s personality into the wedding. Whether it’s tweaking the drinks package to accommodate a family’s favourite wine or arranging for a couple to work with our Executive Head Chef to incorporate a special dish into their menu to reflect their cultural heritage, we always go the extra mile.
We believe that it’s the little details that are what help to make every moment memorable
