Wedding

Liam & Amy, Shooters Hill Hall, Clive Wedding Video

They did it! Heres a little read on the marriage of Liam and Amy at Shooters Hill Hall on August 4th 2018.

Blue skies with the sun beaming down, Amy and the bridal party excitedly getting ready in the wedding house with the help of the very talented make-up artist Kate Lambie. Set in the heart of Shropshire and surround by acres of beautiful grounds, Shooters Hill Hall was built in 1822 as a country retreat and earned its name ‘the wedding house’ by the children from many wedding parties over the years. Although the venue has been beautifully refurbished it still has a lot of the original features remaining which allows the character and background of the building to shine though. It is enjoyed by the guests for its many gardens, lawns, terraces, paddocks and woodlands an has uninterrupted view of over 40 miles taking you right up to the Berwyn Mountains.

A traditional vintage wedding car took the bridal party to St Peter and Pauls Church in Wem where the couple said their vows, it was then back to Shooters for the reception where a lovely wedding breakfast was provided by Cheryl Jane Catering. This was inside the Garden Room Marquee which was decorated to perfection by Jasmine Floral Fancies including the cake flowers for the wedding cake created by Crumbs Cakery.

There is always a particular part of the day where myself and the photographer get to take the new couple off to explore the grounds and get those one to one shots that form a main part of the film. We love being creative here and finding unique and quirky angles which create that special and emotional moment when our couples watch back their film. Johanna Steward was the photographer for Liam and Amy and i can’t recommend her enough, a fun person full of life and experience and i enjoyed teaming up with her during the day. Liam and Amy took their time here together amazingly, dancing, walking, twirling in the beautiful sunshine allowed us to be playful with the camera and capture some unique moments thats tell their love storey perfectly. 

Joe Seager did a brilliant job entertaining during the evening reception, having been performing live for over 15 years Joe offers years of experience and a variety of different songs to suit any couples requirements. Also as a talented songwriter and guitar player he offers the chance to record and perform more personal songs that are created for that one special day. The guests at Liam and Amy’s wedding had a fantastic time singing and dancing while Joe performed his set, along with a bite to eat from the scrumptious Hog Roast by Castlemoore Farm Roast, what a great way to finish off what was a stunning wedding day.

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!

Jack & Kelly, The Inn At White Well Wedding Video

Feature Film

 A dream wedding for a dream couple!

Meeting 6 years ago in Preston’s resident rock club Jack described the moment as something out of the movies. So line up the tequilas this was a day to remember! 

The ceremony was held at St Thomas' Church in Lytham and bride Kelly made her beautiful entrance to the church arriving in a prestige Rolls Royce. A thoughtful touch for the wedding guests after the ceremony that we don’t see often was an ice cream cart serving the famous Bonds ice cream, a fabulous idea. After leaving the church the guests could cool off and enjoy a cone or two before heading to the Inn at Whitewell for the reception. 

Before heading over to the reception venue we took a stroll along Lytham front with the new Mr and Mrs, the weather was perfect and what a brilliant way for them to spend some quality time together on their special day, not realising I was capturing some natural and beautiful shots which were perfect for telling their story.  

 

The fun didn’t stop there getting the groomsmen to balance across 20 little stepping stones which spread across the stream was an eventful moment, we really wasn’t waiting for one to slip in, honest! The things we do to capture the interesting moments throughout the day, but such fun we all had doing so, after all it is a day to remember. 

You know a day has been the best when you cant move on the dance floor, the party continued and the smiles on everybody’s faces said it all, to see the hard work that Jack and Kelly have done over the last 12m turn into a day they will never forget,  and it is such a privilege to put that into a film they can watch over and over again. Thankyou Jack and Kelly and Congratulations. 

So take a shot they tied the knot!

Jack & Danielle, The Mere Golf Resort & Spa Wedding Video

What a fantastic day for Jack and Danielle to say I DO in the heart of the Cheshire countryside. The Mere Golf and Spa was where they chose to celebrate their special day as this beautiful and elegant hotel offers everything you need for a day to remember. 

Our day began in the bridal suite overlooking the mere with the birds tweeting on a glorious morning. A relaxed atmosphere whilst Danielle and the bridal party had makeup from the fabulous Emily Simpson, before putting on her delicately laced (bespoke wedding boutique) dress. 

Arriving in style under the red-bricked victorian archway appeared a white Rolls Royce where Danielle and her father drove into the championship golf course surrounding this beautiful venue. (BK Executive Cars)

What a fabulous setting to capture the couples 1st few moments as husband and wife, walking the countryside and capturing natural emotions alongside (Lesley and Shaun Meredith Photography

The wedding breakfast had a special kind of entertainment, whilst the guests were enjoying their meal the singing waiters appeared and had everybody waving the napkins and singing along in the celebration. 

The entertainment didn’t stop there, Jack and Danielle had carefully picked out plenty of tasty treats such as a donut wall, prosecco cart, vodka ice sculpture and candy cart for the evening guests enjoyment, I left watching everybody party the night away with the talented Band and DJ (Scott Welsby Entertainment)

Tom & Lucy, Statham Lodge Wedding Video

Short Film (scroll to the bottom for the feature)

Well Tom and Lucy what can I say... stunning couple, stunning day, stunning wedding. 

On the misty morning of may 12th 2018 I joined bride Lucy at her home in Cheshire for the bridal prep, such a lovely morning with coffee, croissants and a cheeky glass of champagne to calm the nerves. Tom had put together the sweetest gift for Lucy ‘10 reasons I can’t wait to marry you’ what a pleasure listening to her read out the love they have for each other and capturing her beaming smile as she read ‘coming home to you is the best part of the day’ 

St Thomas’ church Stockton Heath was where they became Mr and Mrs , a stunning service and I was lucky enough to share and capture those special memories as well as working alongside a fantastic duo Jo and Nikki (Kelly Cotter Photography)

The new Mr and Mrs Norris continued their day by travelling in a vintage wedding car to Statham Lodge in Lymm. A classic georgian Manor House surrounded by acres of beautiful grounds. The weather was definitely on our side which was perfect for the canapés and drinks reception outside, allowing the guests to celebrate with the newly weds whilst enjoying the sunshine and stunning grounds of the venue. 

The party continued throughout the evening and I was able to grab the couple for some alone time walking the gardens in the sunset, capturing natural and special time in their 1st few hours as husband and wife, finishing under the stars concluding a fabulous day of Tom and Lucy’s ‘wedding of the year’
