Fantastic Venue and service

My husband and I got married at The Latimer Estate on 11th June 2022 and we cannot rate the hotel highly enough. It was a FANTASTIC day and the staff worked tirelessly to ensure our day went as planned. We exclusively hired the mansion house and our dedicated wedding coordinator, Krity, who is part of the new team of event coordinators at the venue, was AMAZING going that extra mile in the build up and on the big day itself. The hotel senior management team of Hayley and Mark took the time to get to know us personally and dealt very swiftly with any concerns we had. We cannot fault them and it really showed that they cared about our big day and we were in safe hands. On the day itself, the building presented beautifully, the staff were friendly and guests said the food was excellent. In fact a few guests have told us that the lamb we had for our wedding breakfast was the best they have ever eaten! The venue definitely has that wow factor in both appearance and service!
In summary, we were delighted with choosing The Latimer Estate as our wedding venue, and we will be returning many more times in the future as guests as it now holds a special place in our hearts. Thank you to Hayley, Mark, Krity and team for making our day as magical as we had ever wished for.

Stress-free wedding

My (now) wife and I got married here in August 2023. The staff were nothing short of superb聽鈥斅燡ess was phenomenal during the planning and was always on hand to answer any queries we had. Petkov was incredible during the day, helping things run as smoothly as possible, and the chef... just wow.

When people come up to you days after and talk about how unexpectedly good the food was, when they were already expecting quality from foodies like us, it is testament to the chef鈥檚 abilities. He was also incredibly accommodating when a guest was waylaid, changing plans last-minute to ensure everyone was happy and fed.

The grounds were utterly spectacular 鈥斅爊ot even the rain could put a dampener on the day, and there is plenty to see indoors too, from placards on the local history (very interesting for history buffs) to a mini library with a bar (great for fellow bibliophiles).

As for the rooms themselves? Absolutely top-tier 鈥斅爀specially in the mansion house. The beds were fantastic, the amenities were on point and we simply cannot recommend De Vere Latimer estate enough.

10/10, would strongly recommend.

Beautiful venue, incredible service

The biggest thank you to Jess and Abby - a coordination team of dreams!! Nothing was out of question for them and between them they planned and executed the wedding day of our dreams! The chefs, waiting staff, reception team and bar staff were also perfect on the day. We truly can't thank you all enough! Highly recommend Latimer Estate - plenty of accommodation, absolutely stunning grounds and the friendliest staff!

Very impressed!

My wife and I had a wedding at the venue. We stayed the night before and on the day of the wedding with our family and friends. The wedding was perfect, from the perspective of the bride and groom, we did not have to contact the staff once and were left to enjoy the day. The staff we incredibly polite, efficient and accommodating to any requests, I cannot be thankful enough for how much they contributed to making our wedding day perfect!

Beautiful winter wedding in the Chilterns

We got married at Latimer in February 2023, after I proposed to my husband there in June 2021 (thinking we'd never be able to get married there, so at least I'd propose there). It was an absolutely wonderful day! The staff did an amazing job checking in with us throughout, with Abbie the coordinator on the day making sure everything was running smoothly. Jessica, our coordinator in the run up to the day, was amazingly organised and did a great job taking over from a previous coordinator whose approach had been much less attentive and well prepared. That didn't seem to phase her at all and she made us feel very well cared for after that experience.

It was wonderful to be able to include our dog Pumpkin in our special day, and having our entire day happening in one place definitely reduced the stress levels. It was great not to have any time lost to travel between different venues during the day. Our guests really appreciated being able to stay the night in the same venue and loved that they could pop back to their room at any time during the day. Having our use of a private bar meant we felt our wedding was private, but guests were also able to spill out into the library and public areas, so older guests could enjoy some quiet as the evening rolled on.

There were a few tiny niggles including difficulties with guests booking the contracted rooms using their own payment details, and our original coordinator didn't fill us with confidence. However once Jessica took over our account we felt like we were in great hands, and Abbie did a wonderful job bringing it all together on the day.

We'd really recommend this beautiful venue!

Lac of communication

So many things wrong..got my sash colour wrong, overcharged people for their room, housekeeping in the garden was very poor, pizza not done in pizza oven in garden as promised. Moving stuff out of bride鈥檚 room without telling her.

The Fairy-Tale Wedding of Dreams

We had our wedding here at the De Vere and just one word can be used to describe the whole thing from start to finish. That word is AMAZING! The venue itself is absolutely stunning, the grounds, d茅cor and rooms are beautiful. All the staff at the De Vere are just fabulous, they couldn't do enough for us, our family and friends. The food is delicious and award worthy and that was one of the things all our guests commented on the most was the food! The events team, Jess, Lloyd and everyone else were just a dream. From day one where we pulled up to this beautiful manor house and met Jess for the first time to checkout the day after the wedding, they were just amazing. Any question we had was answered, they went over and above to give us the fairy-tale wedding we envisioned and it really was like something out of a dream. Thank you all so much for the most wonderful weekend that we will cherish forever. We will be back to stay so we can relive just a little bit of our day by being there. If you are looking for a venue to host a wedding or any other big event then look no further, your dreams come true at the De Vere! If you are looking for a beautiful location to have some time away in the gorgeous Bucks hills then again, this is the place for you. Thank you De Vere Latimer!

Our wedding

A huge huge huge thank you to Jess and Lloyd. Where do we start?! Jess was phenomenal in her knowledge and expertise of wedding coordinating. We asked a lot of questions but nothing was ever too much trouble for her. We built a fantastic rapport with her and just wanted to take time to say thank you. Lloyd was the main man leading our big day and he ensured the day ran so smoothly. He even came up to us after our church ceremony with a glass of champagne.. it鈥檚 all the little touches that just made our day. The hotel itself is absolutely stunning and the food was incredible (and we love our food)! Anyone thinking of having your big day here, do not hesitate! We look back and the only sad thing is that we can鈥檛 just relive it all over again!!! Thanks so much guys, it鈥檚 a day we will cherish forever and will never forget.

Wedding at Latimer Estate

We got married at De Vere Latimer Estate on 14th April and are so incredibly happy that we found this venue. The venue itself is absolutely stunning and set in a beautiful location in the countryside. Our whole wedding planning journey was made so easy by Jessica who was always on hand to answer any questions and help us with anything we were unsure of. During our planning meetings, she was so kind, so helpful and very professional. We met our event coordinator Abby the day before our wedding and she was just as kind and helpful. We were unable to meet her prior to this as we had other commitments so were a bit worried but she eased us with her bubbliness and professionalism. She ensured our day ran smoothly and perfectly and you can tell just how much they both love to make people's wedding dreams come true. We would recommend anyone to have their special day here, we just wish we could do ours all over again!

Amazing Venue - Beautiful Setting - Great team

We had the best weekend at De Vere Latimer for our wedding. The venue is a really interesting historical building in the most beautiful setting and everyone commented what a wonderful location we'd picked!

The wedding breakfast was delicious and we also had pizzas in the evening which were a huge hit with the guests.
The event staff were brilliant - Jessica walked us through the whole process, arranging plenty of planning meetings to organise every detail so we felt completely relaxed for the big day. This included everything from managing our external suppliers, to looking after many other aspects such as stationary and room layouts. And the day itself ran so smoothly - Abby in particular was amazing setting up the event and sorting everything so we didn't have a single worry during the day. She really does manage the day and her brilliant team so well.

The venue was especially perfect for us as it has plenty of rooms for guests to stay over and we had a lot of people travelling from out of town - this made the weekend extra special as everyone was able to stay as late as they wanted and we saw many of our guests for breakfast the following morning.

Overall a brilliant day and a brilliant weekend! Would highly recommend for any wedding.

Th perfect Wedding venue and Team!

DeVere Latimer Estate was the perfect venue to host our Christmas themed wedding.

We had actually chosen another venue but went to see DeVere Latimer out of curiosity and instantly knew it would be perfect and booked it the next day. We viewed the venue on a hot day which looked stunning, although it was actually snowing on our wedding day and it could not have looked more picture perfect.

Firstly the wedding venue... jaw dropping stunning! The drive up to the venue is so picturesque, through some country and forest lanes, arriving at the hotels long grand drive entrance, leading to the most beautiful mansion, flanked by picture perfect views of the countryside. No picture can do it justice, you have to see it in person. Our wedding was held in the mansion house which is gorgeous, from the opulent entrance, grand staircase and stunning decor that leads to the canopy, bar and reception rooms. From there you also have private views and access to the stunning garden and countryside hills. Both bar area and reception room were perfect where you can customise is down to every detail per your taste and budget. We had very specific request due to it being a Christmas themed wedding and the Wedding Team surpassed our expectations in every way.

Secondly the wedding planning team, as perfect at the venue itself. Due to a change in venue we had to plan our wedding in 2.5 months. The team could not have made this easier and less stressful for us. They recommended suppliers were brilliant, where you can pick and choose what you want or, what we did, do a mix and match of their and your won suppliers. They were so accommodating at every step of the journey, really listening to what we wanted and bending over backwards to make it happen. Not one member was pushy and we felt really valued. Where other venues had a red line of what they were willing to do, no request at Latimer was too big or too small - they genuinely cared about making our day perfect and not about what cost or commission they were receiving. This carried onto the wedding day where the whole team (led by Lloyd) were so calm, respectful and helpful, going above and beyond to make us and all our guests happy.

Finally the food. I must admit when we saw the menu options on paper we were a little underwhelmed being of Indian background. We needed have worried as when we went for the taste tasting, the food blew us away. We then met the Chef (Partha) and he even did some tweaks to the menu to give it our own flare. Our guests raved about it all, including some food bloggers and foodies who came. They were such talented chefs!

The above barely scratches the surface why Latimer and the Wedding team made our wedding journey perfect, so we have nothing but wonderful things to say with absolutely no negatives. All our guests still talk about our wedding weekend and how stunning it all looked, how much fun they had and how all the touches, big and small, made it equally grand but personal.

We are eternally grateful to the whole team at DeVere Latimer Estate.

Venue and grounds beautiful staff extremely poor

The grounds are stunning which is what made us first go for the venue firstly.

During the planning we went through multiple wedding coordinators who had left. One of which who said she鈥檚 just had enough.

On the day the staff didn鈥檛 follow anything that was wrote down with the running of the day which I spent multiple meetings with the venue doing.
We may as well never have done the menu tasting as what was put out on the day half of it was not what we chose. My one gluten and dairy free guest basically didn鈥檛 eat all day even though they said a separate meal will be made for her for the day and evening there was nothing for her to eat.

Bar staff rude, ran out of everything straight away. They had been having supply issues with drinks so barely anything for guests to drink other than beer and wine.
Charge extra for bridal suite doesn鈥檛 come with luxury top package. However they never told us they even had one until 10 days before our wedding and turned around and said it鈥檚 taken now anyways.
The rooms for our guests were a shambles checking into, taking up so much time of the wedding day.
They threw all my wedding stuff into a room and a small bag damaging it all. The list is as long as my arm with things that weren鈥檛 right about our day. The lack of care surrounding our special day was clearly due to short staff no training no planning and cramming 4 weddings in a row back to back. Mine being the last one that week.

Wouldn鈥檛 recommend unfortunately. Maybe for a weekend stay but definitely not a wedding.

Best day of our lives

Where do i eve start! We had our wedding De Vere Latimer Estate a week or so ago! We had the most amazing day as did all our guests and everyone can't stop talking about it. From the moment we saw the venue we knew it was our wedding venue and a place that would be always be so special for us. The sheer number of rooms available for guests also made it a whole weekend event and everyone got to fully relax and enjoy the big day. Now as for the team where does it end Jess and Abby were fantastic from the very beginning, emails always responded to so quickly every question answered no issues and they make you honestly feel like your wedding is the only one of the season! On the day everything went fabulously and we couldn't fault any of Jess or Abby hard work in our planning. Thank you personally to you both for a magical wedding day! (We will be back very soon for a stay) As for the hotel its self the staff can't do enough for you and we was made to feel so welcome, all the staff chatting, joking to our guests throughout the weekend and very grateful thank you to Laura, Daisy, Cristian and Josephine who we kept very busy at the bar all weekend! You was amazing and our weekend wouldn't have been the same without you all! Last but not least a thanks to Jane M who made all our bedroom requirements happen with no issues at all, we shared many calls and laughs along the way and everything was truly perfect! If you are looking for a wedding venue that can spill into a weekend I can't recommend this place enough. We had our dream day. Chloe and Alfie x

Shambles when it comes to communication

Lets get one thing clear, our wedding was lovely, however dealing with them is a nightmare. A month before our wedding and we were really panicking as we couldn't get hold of them via any method, but the biggest scandal is that after checking out the following day and paying for our friends and families room and settling up any incidentals and being told that we are all clear and paid up, 3 months later they decide to chase us and tell us we owe them an additional 拢2,000. Truly disgusting service in my opinion.

Leap Day Wedding!

We had a brilliant day. Everything was so perfect. The room looked amazing, exactly how we hoped and imagined it would. Salvo and Lloyd helped the day run seamlessly which we appreciate was in no small part down to all the time and effort you put in to planning and organising everything, so thank you very much for all your help! Planning a wedding and sharing our vision is quite a stressful process and we appreciate all the help you gave us along the way. Thank you for all your prompt replies to all our questions and for being patient with us whilst we changed our minds and second guessed things
