Annabelle + Mike Leez Priory wedding film

Annabelle + Mike Leez Priory wedding film

6th August 2016 Annabelle & Mike – Filmed at Leez Priory, Essex

“I realized you were Mike’s princess today.”

For a father, the day of his daughter’s wedding can be a bittersweet one. Annabelle’s father was no exception, but he acknowledged graciously during his toast that his daughter was undoubtedly happy with the lovely Mike, and so as a father he couldn’t really ask for more. Annabelle and Mike’s wedding in the jaw-dropping splendor of Leez Priory in Essex was a magical day for a couple truly meant for each other. Mike described his new wife as “the lady of the day, and the lady of my life” and his bride was indeed both, in her gorgeous full-skirted gown with delicate lace sleeves and laced bodice. She wore a sleek veil that was pinned into her chic chignon up-do, and later transformed her look by removing the lace sleeves to free herself up for more elaborate dance moves!

Annabelle’s bridesmaids made a pretty picture in lavender gowns with lace bodices, carrying baby blue and lavender bouquets. It was a glorious sunny day, ideal for an outdoor ceremony- and as Annabelle walked towards her husband-to-be, with the turrets of Leez Priory behind her, she looked every inch the princess she was. Mike had to wipe away a tear as she approached him, and after they were pronounced husband and wife a little while later, he gave her a long-awaited kiss and triumphantly waved at the gathered guests, in happy disbelief at finding such a perfect partner. A string and keyboard musical interlude entertained the guests while Mike and Annabelle signed the register, and then before long they emerged as husband and wife, whooping and pumping the air before walking back down the aisle.

The grounds of Leez Priory made for a stunning sunset location, and the guests sprawled on the grass to enjoy the final moments of the afternoon, before the couple carried out their first dance on the lawn. They entertained their guests with a funky routine, which Mike in particular threw himself into with enthusiasm! At the reception, the tables each features Polaroid snaps of the couple in the various placed they have visited across the world, from Sugar Loaf Mountain, to St. Lucia and the Golden Gate Bridge. In his toast to his new wife, Mike expressed the hope that there’d be “plenty of running, plenty of travelling and plenty of karaoke” in their future, and with those key ingredients they are sure to have many happy adventures together!

Kate and Chris Channels wedding video Blog

Kate and Chris Channels wedding video Blog

On the 5th of September, 2015 Kate & Chris finally said “I do” at Channels of Essex, an upscale 15th-century hotel. A Channels wedding video Essex is absolutely exquisite, but on this day it was so much more! Not because of just any wedding, but the wedding of Kate and Chris who shared their true love with everyone around them. The bridal party spent the morning together in jokes and laughter as Kate was pampered in the bridal suite by stylists with her bridesmaids Kirsty, Lisa, Nicola and Sarah. The look on her father’s face said it all when she finally revealed her bridal look just before he walked her down the eye — pure joy for this beautiful bride dressed in white. Once Chris saw his blushing bride, he spent the day knowing (and letting Kate know) that he “truly is the luckiest guy alive” because she said, “I do.” Their love was full-on in the air, and all the joy that surrounded the two of them was totally infectious on this very special day. After Kate and Chris had promised to love and cherish one another in the presence of God, friends and family, the two were celebrated by their lovely guests under a sea of rose petals floating in the wind. The flowers truly made for one epic send off! The reception got under way with live music, and photography on the lawn by Joanna Pearce. Kate and Chris spent one romantic evening surrounded by friends, family and loved ones dancing the night away. Thank you so very much to Kate and Chris! May the rest of your days together be just as special as this day, and full of all the laughter and love you bring to those around you!
