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 famousĀ 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 littleĀ 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.”
