Mollie + Ollie Brill Church & Notley Farm wedding video

Mollie + Ollie Brill Church & Notley Farm wedding video, Buckinghamshire

16th December 2017 Mollie + Ollie Notley Farm wedding video, Buckinghamshire

It is not very often I get to film a local wedding in Brill Church, so it was fantastic when I was asked to film and create a wedding film for a local Brill family. It was a pleasure capturing Mollie Ludlow marrying her childhood sweetheart Ollie Stringer just before Christmas on the 16th December 2017.

Snow was still on the ground and a cold chill was in the air when guests arrived at the ceremony in Brill church. Mollie arrived in style in a John Deere tractor and heated trailer to an eagerly waiting Ollie. As the wedding tractor made its way through the pretty hilltop village of Brill well-wishers looked on as Mollie arrived fashionably late.

Mollie looked stunning in her dress, Tim escorted his daughter down the aisle to a beaming Ollie and friends and family looking on. The knot was tied, and with a boom of cheering the celebrations continued in convoy down to the Tythe barn at Notley farm.  All the best you too and a big thank you for letting me be part of your big day.

Sarah + Ali wedding film Lains Barn

SARAH AND ALI WEDDING FILM LAINS BARN, OXFORDSHIRE

21st October 2017 Sarah and Ali wedding film Lains Barn

Sometimes all it takes is one meeting to realize that you have found the perfect life partner. You don’t need months or years to realize that you both are meant for each other. That’s how things were for Ali and Sarah. Ali knew from the 2nd date that he wanted to marry her. The proposal finally happened during a hot air balloon ride in Myanmar (Burma) and that led to 21st October 2017; the day of this fabulous wedding film Lains Barn in Oxfordshire.

Ali and Sarah celebrated their special day at Lains Barn surrounded by friends and family. Sarah wore an elegant white wedding dress from Mori Lee with a lace bodice that hugged her body and made her look like a princess. Her stylish shoes were from TOMS espadrilles and the Zomorodian Jewelry she wore belonged to the Iranian culture and added a nice touch to her entire look. Her hair and makeup was gorgeously done by Marianne from the BBC.

The bridesmaids wore matching grey dresses by Bentall’s and were actually hemmed by the mother of the bride. Isn’t that cool? During the wedding ceremony, the couple shared their vision about how they want their married life to look like. Promises were made, and vows were said, which in the end left everyone a bit teary.
It was a beautiful ceremony and the wedding décor was phenomenal. The floral arrangement was done by Kathy Cunliffe (mother of the bride) and the baker behind the cake was Sophie Moir who is a good friend of the couple.

At the reception, the couple enjoyed their first dance on the dance floor and later was joined by the rest of the guests. The live music played by The Cumberland Ceilidh Band was immensely enjoyed by the crowd.

In capturing this special day it’s always a great pleasure to work alongside my good friend and photographer Dale Stephen!

Sarah and Ali are perfect for each other, I wish them the best of luck for the future!

14th October 2017 Carol + Young Milton Hill House wedding film, Oxfordshire

Weddings are the best representation of happiness. They are so magical and seeing two individuals tie the knot and promise to stay by each other’s side through thick and thin is so heartwarming. This is exactly how I felt during Carol and Young’s Japanese wedding video Oxfordshire. The couple tied the knot on 14 October 2017 at the Milton Hill House. It was such a breathtaking venue.

Carol wore a stunning white lace dress from Bicester Bridal that draped her body perfectly. It was a pure example of simplicity and elegance combined into one. Her white lace-up shoes were equally beautiful and something every bride would want to wear on her special day. The shoes were from Perfect Vintage while the bows and ribbons were added by PamicDolls. Carol’s hair was tied into an elegant braid with beads and some curled loose ends framed her face, a great masterpiece by Katie-Jane Whitlock. She did not wear too much makeup and I was amazed at how fresh she looked, probably beaming of excitement. Her makeup artist was Chris Howells and she surely did a splendid job of keeping it natural.

Watching the couple talk, laugh and kiss, we can easily tell that apart from being in love, they are very good friends; the type of friends who aren’t afraid to be themselves in front of each other.

Carol and Young were joined by their close family members and friends on their special day. It was a Japanese inspired wedding with exquisite flower arrangement from Violet Gardens and the decorations from The Final Flourish. There was even a decadent chocolate fountain from Chocolate Fondue Company and a cake by Reindeer Café.

The bride and groom’s faces were beaming with happiness and excitement as they made their vows and sealed the deal with rings from Purely Diamonds and Carbon 6. Every moment of joy, togetherness and contentment was caught on camera by me and watching their Japanese wedding film made me almost tear up! I wish the happy couple a lifetime together and may their love continue to grow and flourish.

9th September 2017 Lucy + Osman Royal automobile association wedding film, Surrey

You know when you reach that certain age in life when you’re ready to settle down? That was how Lucy and Osman felt about their lives, which makes them perfect for each other. They both were well aware of what they want and the decision to tie the knot was like a cherry on top.

The wedding took place at The Royal Automobile Club on 9th September 2017 which was a beautiful destination to hold such a precious event.

Lucy looked like a real-life princess in a breathtaking white wedding dress by Love Bridal. Her dress had to be accompanied by equally stunning accessories and that is exactly what Rainbow Club delivered in terms of shoes. As for the ring and jewelry, those were from Rapheal. Suzanne Smith, the makeup artist kept it simple and brought our Lucy’s natural beauty. Beautiful curls framed the bride’s face, all thanks to Joanna Maguire from Bella and Bride.

The wedding preps started the day after Osman proposed and the outcome of Lucy’s planning and preparing was truly remarkable. From the venue to flower décor by Mad Lilies, everything was just perfect. Other décor included sophisticated chair covers by Host With Style and a pleasantly appealing Marquee by Carron Marquees. And how can we forget about the Magic Mirror from Shutterbox Photobooths; that was a fun addition to the wedding décor!

Lucy and Osman were joined by their friends and family members on their special day and everyone at the celebration had a story to tell about the bride and groom. A special and heartwarming toast was given by Lucy’s sister, who was also the Maid of Honour. The lilac dresses worn by the Maid of Honour and Bridesmaid were courtesy of Nabbd.

During the reception, the couple shared their first dance with the music played by Black and Gold/ String Trio; they surely know how to keep the audience engaged with their songs. Each moment from walking down the aisle to the couple’s first dance was captured by Gemma Chase Photography.

At the end of the day, Lucy and Osman looked happy and excited to start the next chapter of their lives together. I wish them the best of luck!

8th September 2017 Daisie + Chris Sudbury House wedding film, Oxfordshire

 When two close friends decide to tie the knot and start a life together, that’s the best decision ever. That is exactly what Daisie and Christopher did; two amazing and kind souls came together as one on 8th September 2017 at Sudbury House Hotel.

The happy couple’s family and friends were a huge part of the celebration and every single face was beaming during the entire event. Best man, bridesmaids and groomsmen; everyone was a big part of everything and both the bride and groom were delighted to be surrounded by their loved ones.

Daisie and Christopher had been living together for 4 years, so they both knew that they would end up spending their lives together. The deal was sealed when Christopher proposed and that is when the wedding preps began.

Wedding décor was absolutely stunning and the floral arrangement by our friends over at Fabulous Flowers made things even better. Just like the decorations, the food was exquisite as well all thanks to Sudbudy House/ Rupert Belcher (Perfect Porker).

The wedding dress by Proposals Whitney made Daisie look the star of the event (which she actually was). The delicate white lace constructed into a sleeveless V-neck dress that draped the bride’s body beautifully was a true masterpiece. Seagis (makeup artist) and Emily Murray (hairstylist) all played a role in making sure that Daisie looked stunning on her special day. Her ring and jewelry were from Michael Lyons which went with the dress very well.

The bridesmaids wore elegant pastel blue dresses also by Proposals Witney. Christopher and his best man and groomsmen wore suits from Dominos Witney which made them look like true gentleman.

The huge white tiered cake was from Diane Herd and the married couple surely had a fun time cutting it. The Sudbury House Wedding Film captured the ceremony in moving form and the still images were taken by Jacqueline Cross.

Before the wedding was over, the couple enjoyed their first dance with music by Star Sound Express. For Daisie and Christopher, it’s all about teamwork and that could clearly be seen throughout the ceremony. They surely make the best team without a doubt!

STEPHANIE + JOHN LE MANOIR WEDDING FILM, OXFORDSHIRE

1ST August 2017 Stephanie and John Le Manoir wedding film

There is no perfect time to find that someone special in your life. He or she can come by any moment, in the most unexpected way and make a place in your heart in the most unusual circumstances. There is no age for love and Stephanie and John prove that very well. It was a true pleasure to be able to capture this couple’s wedding ceremony and watching them say their vows and the love they held for each other actually made me tear up!

It was not a grand event and only the close friends and family members were invited. However, that does not mean that the wedding was any less than amazing. It’s the bride and groom who make the wedding wonderful, and that’s what Stephanie and John did.

The wedding ceremony took place in Blanc de Blanc Suite Le Manoir. John got ready in his tux accompanies by Mark, the bride’s son in law. As for Stephanie, she was accompanied by several people who helped her get ready for the big day. Her daughter Suzann was present along with a makeup artist and hairdresser. Emma and Sadia, the women behind the dress worn by Stephanie also helped the bride get all dressed up.

Both John and Stephanie were all giddy and happy about promising each other forever. Olly, the photographer (a friend of Suzann and Mark) made sure that every special moment was captured. It was an intimate wedding Le Manoir but documenting it was super fun for me! Stephanie and John belong with each other and I wish them the very best.

15th July 2017 Rachael + Adam Marquee wedding video Berkshire

Finding love isn’t always easy. However, when you do find the one, make sure to hold him/her tightly and never let go. That is exactly what Rachael and Adam did when they found each other, they held on tightly and decided to put a ring on it.

The theme of the wedding was rustic boho with a bit of vintage feel to it since Rachael arrived in a fancy vintage car by Always Chauffeur. The wedding ceremony took place at St. Mary’s Church and it was a beautiful ceremony. The couple couldn’t take the smiles off their face and anyone could tell that they were in love. Rachael wore a white wedding gown, the type you see in movies worn by princesses and queens. Her exquisite dress was from Mirror Mirror, Angel, London and was accompanied by intricate shoes from Jimmy Choo. To go with her dress, Janelle Langston did her hair and makeup while keeping it sweet and natural.

The bridesmaids wore elegant powder blue dresses by Two Birds and just like any other bridesmaids, they held her wedding gown from the car and all the way into the church. After the ceremony, the wedding party headed to Eversley and Millfield Farmhouse for the reception. The floral decoration at the reception was done beautifully by Special Occasions Florists and the cake was prepared by The Cake Fairy.

Every moment was captured by Simon Kemp Photography and it was an event worth remembering. I wish the happy couple the best of luck for their future!

Alex + Erin Wedding Film Keystone Colorado

ALEX AND ERIN WEDDING FILM KEYSTONE COLORADO, USA

 8th July 2017 Alex And Erin Wedding Film Keystone Colorado, USA

 As the bridesmaids walked in, elegant in beautifully designed fitted crimson dresses with a cream belts, with Erin looking so elegant in her wedding gown. Her hair fell delicately on her shoulder, with her neck adorned with a beautiful necklace, I was certain this would become one of my most beautiful wedding videos. Alex and his groomsmen didn’t disappoint either, they looked impeccable in black suits, white shirts, and matching ties.

8th of July, 2017, was a perfect day. From the warm summer breeze to the phenomenal views of the Rocky Mountain and large trees that surround the Timber Ridge at North Peak in Keystone Colorado. It was made even more perfect because it was the day two long-time partners and friends – Erin and Alex said “I do” amidst family and friends. The scenery, the well-decorated venue and, the happiness that I could almost touch, made that moment magical.

 

When you choose someone to marry, what you are really marrying is the future mother or father of your children.”

 

As Alex said these words, I heard the certainty and love in his voice and was sure that the respect, kindness, and support I perceived between these two was deep-rooted, one feature that is rare these days. Waltzing to music by DJ Maestro, as they took their first dance, time seemed to stop as everyone watched them dance. Married couples found their partner’s and took the time to reminisce their own magical moments.

The testimonies made by friends and families emphasized how Alex and Erin are meant for each other and how they make each other better. The smile on the couple’s faces was just beautiful! As friends and family made their toasts, I knew the love they have for each other is pure.

I filmed Erin’s sister wedding in Oxford UK you can see it here, after which the family invited me to film Erin’s wedding in the USA. I feel extremely lucky to have witnessed two sisters tie the knot in style.

Congratulations, Erin and Alex, I wish you happiness now and always. I look forward to seeing you celebrate your love at sixty!

Nicky + Steve Wedding Film Fairway Tavern

NICKY AND STEVE WEDDING FILM FAIRWAY TAVERN, HERTFORDSHIRE

8th July 2017 Nicky and Steve Wedding Film Fairway Tavern, Hertfordshire

Summer the wedding season, the time when a lot of new families begin, and this was the hottest day of 2017. The wedding of Nicky and Steve on the eighth of July at the scenic Fairway Tavern Old Herrn lane, Welwyn Garden City. The Fairway Tavern provides the perfect outdoor wedding venue, nestled among the colourful greens of the Pan Shanger Golf Complex. The scenery combined with the delicate flowers and colours with which the decoration was done created the most welcoming wedding atmosphere.

The music began, indicating the entry of the bridal train, like other wedding guests, my eyes and camera focused on the aisle and was greeted by the angelic view of Millie and Madeline as they seem to glide down the aisle in their pretty white dress sprinkling petals in their wake. They were followed by Teddy in his cute outfit and Emily the bridesmaid. Finally, Nicky walked in looking all radiant in a fitted sleeveless wedding gown made with delicate bridal lace, her ears, and neck adorned with simple gold jewellery and her hair with a jewelled hair piece. She radiated so much beauty with her million-pound smile. Waiting eagerly for his bride, Steve stood at looking so handsome in a blue suit with gold-coloured tie and pocket square.

With over forty friends and family present to support them on their special day, Nicky and Steve took their vows, tying the knot that would bind their union forever. Looking into each other’s eyes, with so much conviction and joy, they said the words.

I promise to be there when you need me most always and forever,” only true love can make a person make such a commitment without jitters.

True love is the joy of life” these wise words of John Clarke, resonated in my mind as I watched the new couple Nicky and Steve Durkin take their first dance. Lost in each other’s eyes as they waltzed, sharing so many kisses and laughter, they created a breath-taking wedding dance.

Congratulations Nicky and Steve may your happiness never run dry!

Sophie + James A Marquee Wedding Film

SOPHIE AND JAMES A MARQUEE WEDDING FILM, KENT

1st July 2017 Sophie And James A Marquee Wedding Film, Kent

The wedding of Sophie and James took place on the first of July, 2017 at St.  Margaret’s and the Old Barn grounds, it was indeed a lovely occasion. With so many weddings happening in so many styles, I was really glad Sophie and James chose a country wedding. For me, country weddings are usually relaxing and homely, providing unique moments to be captured. I especially loved the horse-drawn carriage ride.

Friends and family gathered that beautiful summer day to celebrate love and friendship with Sophie and James. Everyone radiated happiness and joy as they chatted. The bridesmaids’ carriage arrived first; they wore beautiful navy-blue dresses from Hayley Elizabeth Bridal boutique. Sophie alighted from her carriage in her dad’s arm looking like a fairy princess in a white ball gown, an exceptional piece from Victoria’s Bridal Boutique. Her makeup was perfectly done by expert hands from Gemma-Mac cosmetics.

Taking in the decor done nicely in cream and green colours, Sophie marched into the Church in her father’s arm, dazzling everyone with her contagious smile. Dressed in a black suit from Mia Sposa, with a cream-colored tie and a black shoe from Freya Rose, James waited patiently as his bride approached the altar. Repeating their vow in unison, they sounded like one soul in two bodies. Only love could create such effect.

The wedding reception was another colorful affair, especially the cake by Emma Page cakes was looked absolutely scrumptious. Cutting the cake together, the new couple performed the task with ease, without the usual jitters faced by newly-weds. The wedding reception was a colorful and every moment was captured by Barrie Downie a pleasure to work alongside.

One thing I can say is, Sophie and James are very happy together and are very comfortable with each other, an important basis for undying love. I am indeed grateful to have witnessed the memorable and intimate moments of Sophie and James. Forever is such a brief time for a love like yours. Congratulations!
