Greg & Sophie, Combermere Abbey Wedding Video

Short Film (Feature film at the end)

When fun loving couple Greg and Sophie tied the knot on May 26th 2018 the sun was shining and the day started perfectly. At her parents house Sophie and the bridal party shared lots of smiles, giggles and stories whilst preparing for the best day of her life. Dressed in a laced top bridal gown and flowers in her hair Sophie was ready to ride in a traditional vintage wedding car along with her father. They became the new Mr and Mrs at Ightfield church Whitchurch. 

The reception venue was at the prestige Combermere Abbey Estate, sat upon thousands of years of history this venue offers gardens, woodlands and a beautiful glasshouse to set the scene for your dream fairytale wedding. Working closely along side the brilliant Doug Krier photographer I discreetly followed the new bride and groom to explore the venue and captured some footage showing off Greg and Sophie’s quirky and fun personalities, by this I mean bursting into dance during their photo shoot, just brilliant to see such life and laughter between them. 

After the delicious wedding breakfast guests retired outside to enjoy the stunning grounds, they enjoyed a game of croquet or two before continuing the party long into the evening. Mise En Scene Floral supplied props, the letters and flower wall to add to the guests enjoyment. 

Some very talented entertainers joined us throughout the day, these included the beautiful glass house Music Adaigo Strings who played during the reception and the fantastic Hot Jazz Biscuits who kept the party rocking into the evening.

Congratulations Greg and Sophie what a day to remember!

Will & Roberta, Combermere Abbey Wedding Video

Short Film (Feature at the bottom)

Where to begin for this fabulous couple, Will and Roberta your day excelled in beauty, love and happiness. Capturing those precious memories was a pleasure and such enjoyment it was creating your film.

Watching Roberta open her gift off Will during bridal prep was priceless, a special gift she can treasure forever which Will had carefully matched to the wedding jewellery and also had deep sentimental meaning. What a great start to the day, even though Roberta had to have round 2 with the makeup artist due to a few emotional moments. 

‘Every time you walk in the room you make my heart jump the same as it did as you walked down the isle today’ beautifully spoken words from the groom to his new wife expressing his feelings as he set eyes on Roberta just before they said their vows during a beautiful service at St Helens Church, Tarporley.

Meeting at university Will told us about the first days they met and how a wedding is a perfect excuse for a cliche moment. ‘Hand on heart I can honestly say it couldn’t of been further from love at first sight’ what a perfect time to share these feelings in front of friends and family that mean so much to them both, and it’s brilliant to have such a story to lead their forever cherishing film. 

Will and Roberta chose the fabulous Cheshire based venue that is Combermere Abbey for their reception, this magnificent venue was taken over by Lady Sarah Callander Beckett in 1992 where she began the extensive renovation. This included the stable block which was transformed into luxury cottages allowing accommodation for brides, grooms and their guests when booking this prestigious estate. This complements the 1000 acres of breathtaking walled gardens, parkland and woodland areas, and combermere is a great example of a perfect place of which to capture the bride and groom spending their first moments as husband and wife. 

Will and Roberta picked the popular Doug Krier Photography, it’s great to have such a fantastic photographer to work along side. Our filming is discreet we like to surprise our couples with shots we capture and working with an experienced photographer compliments our filming perfectly.

Weddings need decorations and flowers and what a stunning job The Little Potting Shed did. They dressed the stretch marquee with such elegance for the new Mr and Mrs along with their guests to enjoy the wedding breakfast together, with delicious food provided by Pickled Walnut.

Bloomsbury Music kept everyone entertained right throughout the day. Starting with an amazing choir during the church service to an acoustic session on the lawn whilst the guests were enjoying a game of rounders in the sunshine, followed by a brilliant band playing late into the evening. If your looking for all round entertainment during the whole day then Bloomsbury music are your guys. 

Such organisation made Will and Roberta’s wedding day run so smooth and I was able to capture the special moments of which I could design the film around them. A film in which they can watch over and over again and never get bored, a film of which they can show to their own Jackson 5 and theirs after that. A forever cherished film that will relive the fantastic day of June 2nd 2018, Will and Roberta wedding day!

CONGRATULATIONS to you both!
