Dorton House was the venue for Ami & Davids Wedding – a Grade I Listed Jacobean country house near Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire. ideal for stunning wedding photography. The house was built between 1596 and 1626 by Sir John Dormer on the site of a previous house. The house is in a Gothic Style and is in a horseshoe shape and was built from bricks made from local clay fired at the bottom of Brill Hill. Set in the grounds of the House is a simply gorgeous boutique church, St John the Baptist, which is hidden away and dates back to 1590.
Ami got ready at Long Crendon Manor which is steeped in History and has so much charm, so much so that I intend to take Ami & David back there to take some more shots and capitalise on its beauty.
It was a mixed bag with the weather but this gave us the opportunity to get the brollies out but also to get creative inside. The Black & White images on the staircase and in the doorway have won awards with the Guild of Photographers, always nice to tell the Bride & Groom that they are award winning!

Dorton House Wedding:
In an area which once used to be the Royal hunting grounds of the Saxon and Norman Kings, the name Dorton derives from the old English words dor, tun and means ¨farmstead or village at the narrow pass. Situated on the outskirts of the village, work on the present Grade 1 listed Jacobian Mansion begun on the site of an earlier house by Sir John Dormer in 1596, and wasn´t completed until 1626.
In 1783 the house was sold to Sir John Fletcher and remained in the family until 1928 when it was sold to Major Michael Beaumont. In 1939 the Royal London School for the Blind bought the house and remained until 1955. Mr James Harrison bought the house for Ashfold School and was turned into a preparatory school which to this day is its primary use.
