Bob Langrish was presented with the M.B.E. officially called The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, by Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth April 6, 2011 at the Royal Windsor Castle, recognizing Langrish’s work and achievements as one of the world’s top equine photographers. Together with his fiancée Pamela Dhenin, the couple, who will be married June 18, posed for this photo of Bob holding his medal. After 38 years of specialization in this field, Langrish has built an equestrian photographic library of over 400,000 pictures covering all aspects of the horse. Langrish has recorded six Olympic Games and travels to the United States of America at least 7 times a year and has flown 1.50 million miles in the last 14 years for calendar photography and adds 20,000 new images to his library annually.
He works for top equestrian magazines in more than 20 countries around the World.
Bob Langrish MBE lives in a 17th century Cotswold barn conversion. His international business is based a few miles away in a 17th century stone building - once the local courthouse - in a small village called Bisley, deep in the heart of the Cotswolds.
This is the same medal worn by David Beckham recently at the Royal Wedding on Prince William and Catherine Middleton. While it was widely reported Beckham wore his medal on the wrong side of the lapel of his Ralph Lauren morning suit.
Are you wearing the Medal for your wedding Bob? We all know now the proper way to wear it! Congratulations to Bob and Pamela, as we look forward to another British wedding!
