Jonathan & Lesley, Ashfield House Wedding Video

So Jonathan and Lesley took their love for each other and their love for star wars and produced a magnificent wedding day at the unique and bespoke Ashfield House. This is their story…..

Ashfield house is an award winning, privately owned, exclusive wedding venue in Standish and was the chosen venue for Jonathan and Lesley to have their special day. Having received renovation over recent years this house is now a beautiful canvas for any wedding and the house becomes your home during your stay. With 15 luxury rooms that come with the hire of the venue your guests can enjoy the freedom of a comfortable stay aswell as a fantastic wedding day celebration. For the bride and groom comes the prestige bridal suite including a romantic four-poster bed, juliet balcony and giant jacuzzi bath so you can relax in style and it is the perfect end to you day.

Ashfield House is surrounded by beautiful gardens which are privately owned and gives plenty of backdrops for those intimate couple shots for the photographers and videographers to work with, including the sweeping lawn, lavender path and stone steps. While you are taking time out exploring the grounds as husband and wife the raised terrace is the perfect spot for your family and friends to mingle, eat, drink and party.

I must comment on the ceremony room here at Ashfield house this room is bright, elegant and neutral yet eclectic and quirky all at the same time. With its vaulted ceiling this unique room offers a space that can be transformed and accept any theme or colour scheme but also looks simply stunning with minimal styling.

During the day we worked with the talented photographer Will Fisher, Will captures all aspects of the day in a photojournalistic style which provides spontaneous and creative images that tell a story of your wedding, it was great to work along side a professional that has the same goals as ourselves for the couple, every wedding is different and its great to work with each couple to discover and then portray their personality and love for each other.

The Blossom Room did a fabulous job with the flowers and decorations, stunning bouquets for Lesley and the bridesmaids aswell as delicate decoration in the ceremony room and centre pieces for the wedding breakfast. Carol is a fully qualified floral designer and specialises in weddings and events floristry. The Blossom room provide luxury flowers at the right price without compromising on design and they did beautiful arrangements for Jonathan and Lesley.

The evening was packed with great entertainment including a big surprise for the bride and groom, after the first dance lesley’s uncle got them both seated comfortably infront of the dance floor before introducing a traditional Ukrainian dance group. They provided fabulous costumes and specialised dancing to get everybody clapping and cheering along and it was a really nice touch of some family tradition for lesley. The energy and atmosphere in the room was high and the night of celebrating began. The couple had also arranged for Andy Harrison the magician to entertain their guests after the wedding breakfast and his magic was brilliant, he certainly confused the guests with his amazing skills. There was Pier Fun Casino present during the early evening so the adults could have a little fun gamble or two and the brilliant Agent Smith. These easy-going and talented group of 4 musicians are a high demand wedding band in the north west and they sure now how to get the party started. Renowned for getting the audience involved Agent Smith will get the guests up on the dancefloor and keep them there all night long.

Lesley and Jonathan your wedding day was fabulous, fun, stunning and simply gorgeous from start to finish, it was packed full of love, laughter and entertainment and you two should be proud of the wedding day you created, We loved capturing your wedding story and designing your wedding film with all the happy memories you can keep and cherish forever.

Alastair & Sasha's, Abbey House Hotel Wedding Video

Alastair and Sasha chose the epic Abbey House as their venue, filled with luxury and elegance this premium hotel and wedding venue lies at the bottom of the south lakes and is surrounded by the beautiful lake district countryside. With 61 beautifully decorated rooms with picturesque views over their manicured gardens, Abbey House is a perfect venue that offers couples the full package in which they can relax and enjoy even during the stressful planning stage of a dream wedding.

Although Alastair & Sasha don’t live near Abbey House Hotel they decided to take a trip to visit the venue and fell in love with it. The whole wedding day was held here and with Sasha having her bridal preparations on one side of the hotel and Alastair on the other side there was no way the two of them were going to see each other until the ceremony.

The ceremony was a beautiful scene, as Alastair and Sasha said their vows and looked into each others eyes you could see the love they have for each other and there was emotions around the room and even a tear from some of the bridesmaids.

The beautiful flowers were provided by POSH flowers Ltd, based in Barrow-in-Furness this florist has it all in their name Professional, Original, Stylish and Helpful. They work using the freshest of flowers and are passionate about creating a bespoke design just for you.

We had intermittent rainy showers in the morning as everyone was getting ready indoors. After the ceremony we were blessed with a sunny spell and headed outside for the canapés reception and formal photos. We then had the opportunity to take Alastair and Sasha off for a romantic walk around the gardens. A perfect scenario to capture some natural shots of the couple as the become husband and wife.

It was great to work with Sarah Louise Photography during the day, her fun personality projected into her work and we connected with our creativity. Sarah always has a smile on her face and loves the work she does, she is passionate about living life to the full and you can see in her portfolio that she likes to portray the fun, laughter and happiness within each couple she works with.

The morning preparations began for Sarah and her bridal party with hair styling from Browns hairdressers and makeup by Jo, the morning also consisted of a glass of pink fizz and some gifts for the bridesmaids too. It was a relaxed atmosphere building the excitement and nerves ready for Rich and Sarah to say I Do.

Choosing from the country mansion or the restored fig house this venue offers the perfect atmosphere for the style of wedding you choose, also offering many bedrooms across the estate for friends and family to relax and enjoy. 

Twisted Willow Floristry did an amazing job with the decoration and flowers. From the intricate design up the staircase, bridal flowers, groomsmens boutonnières and overall decoration it completed the venues grand exterior and beautiful interior into Rich and Sarah’s unique wedding style. 

I also need to put a quick mention about how stunning Sarah was in her Phillipa Lepley wedding dress. Phillipa Lepley creates show-stopping gowns with elegance, beauty and relevance, Sarah’s satin wedding dress certainly made her look like a princess. Let’s not forget the groom and his groomsmen who looked very smart in their Moss Bros suits.

Playing bespoke arrangements of classic tunes they create a beautiful ambient backdrop to any special event, their unique and diverse genre selection makes them perfect for any style you choose. The evening entertainment was a band called chromatic, they continued to entertain the guests throughout the evening with their high energy modern live act with experienced professional musicians. Chromatic agree to give a night to remember and they certainly did this for Rich and Sarah’s wedding party. 

Another party trick Rich and Sarah had up their sleeve for their guests during the wedding day was Graeme Shaw, an award winning north east magician who after performing at thousands of weddings he knows exactly when and how to do magic on your guests throughout your special day.  He was the perfect performer after the ceremony and before the wedding breakfast while the guests were mingling and the celebration of Rich and Sarah was in full swing.

Charles & Jennifer's Destination Wedding Video, Estepona, Spain

Sun, Sea, Sand and a Wedding, a perfect combination we think and Charles and Jennifer’s wedding definatley shows it.

A big question for newly engaged couples considering destination weddings is can we still have a film? well that answer is most certainly yes. No matter of the country, venue, day or time of your wedding you would still be able to have our talented and creative videography services to produce a unique wedding film just for you. Another main aspect of having your destination wedding filmed is that there is always somebody that can’t travel to be with you, so to have a film to play back is the closest thing for them to imagine they are there, and of course it is lovely for you to watch back and relive your wonderful day as it will go by so fast.

On the 1st of September 2018 in sunny Estepona the bridal party were relaxing in their beautiful villa with fizz, hot tubs and the sun to catch some last minute rays before getting ready for the couples twilight wedding. What a fabulous and luxurious day preparing for what was a brilliant celebration of Charles and Jennifer’s marriage. It was great to see the couple so relaxed and ready for their day as sunshine weddings had everything under control, a fantastic company who took all the stress of planning into their own hands and gave Charles and Jennifer the day they dreamed of.

The ceremony was held at Puro Beach Marbella at Laguna Village and is one of the most elegant and exclusive beach clubs in the Costa Del Sol. Situated on the shores of the mediterranean sea it offers a stunning and relaxed setting, just perfect for a wedding. Charles and Jennifers wedding was slightly different but just as beautiful, it was a twilight wedding at 8pm so just as the sun set over the sea the couple said their I Do’s, and the party continued late into the evening.

Charles and Jennifer destination wedding

The day after their wedding the couple had another special day planned for their family and friends, they had hired a private area at Sonora Beach where they enjoyed plenty of cocktails and freshly cooked fish straight from the BBQ situated right on the beach. The sun was beaming and it was fantastic to capture the couples first day as husband and wife spending quality time with their guests and enjoying the area they had chosen to become husband and wife.
