1950s style wedding photos
Buckinghamshire via Beijing
We are delighted to be featured in this months County wedding magazine.
“As a photographer I get to see some of the world’s most breathtaking places,” says Graham Lee of Yellow Door Photography.
“It was on one such trip to Beijing that I had the honour of doing a shoot at the Ancestral Temple. This is a famous landmark locally for one important reason: wave after wave of couples are having their wedding photos taken. Like us, the Chinese like to have photos taken to tell a story, only they have their photos taken before the wedding day. This is a little cultural nuance that strikes us in the UK as strange, but it inspired me, and when I got home I immediately got on the phone to some of my wedding friends to see if we could replicate and do something similar in the UK.”
Beijing provided the inspiration for our shoot at Nether Winchendon House. We gathered some of the leading local suppliers to create a portfolio of ideas of what brides might like for their wedding day” – Graham Lee
Below are a few of our favourite photos from the shoot.
