Abby & Chris Wedding video Le Manoir Blog

On the 14th of December 2015, Abby and Chris sealed their love for eternity at Le Manoir Aux Quat’ Saisons Oxfordshire. It was an absolute pleasure to shoot their wedding video Le Manoir Aux Quat’ Saisons Oxfordshire and Raymond Blanc Place. As Chris said, “It was beyond our expectations.” That statement alone pretty much sums up how absolutely romantic this day truly was! A night filled with fairy lights and magic, Abby and Chris are a true inspiration when it comes to love. An intimate wedding, with 14 guests, the reception boasted of fine dining and an evening with magician David Penn. While Neale James caught every other moment on camera. What a joy it was to be a part of such an intimate evening basked in the light of love. The bride was simply elegant and dressed in white while the groom was suited and booted with maroon accents. Both simply sparkled with one look at another when Abby came down the aisle. As if their wedding ceremony wasn’t romantic enough… The magic truly was all around Abby and Chris — even in their epic wedding walk surrounded by sparklers. They say it’s good luck when you have a little rain on your wedding day, and luck was in the air for Abby and Chris. Through tears of joy, laughter and love Abby and Chris said “I do” in one gorgeous fashion. The reception, candle lit in romance, was full of entertainment, magic and most of all — true love! Thank you so much to Abby and Chris for asking us to help you record memories that will last a lifetime. We truly hope every day for the rest of your life together is just as magical as the day you came to be husband and wife!

Sam and Tom a Le Manoir Wedding video

Sam and Tom a Le Manoir wedding video, 17th of July 2014

Set upon the gorgeous grounds of Le Manoir Aux Quat’saisons in Oxfordshire, the 17th of July 2014 marked the day for the enchanting union of the new Mr. and Mrs. The friendly couple from Ireland, a pair of dentists with Samantha having just qualified, opted for a small, intimate civil ceremony that took place on a beautiful hot sunny day, perfect for a memorable wedding video. Le Manoir served as the perfect setting for this unforgettable occasion, especially when accompanied by the beautiful blooms created by Fabulous Flowers. Samantha looked absolutely radiant throughout the affair, with her wedding day look made complete by hair and makeup from Jody and Sam for team Claire Hanson.

Along with their 19 guests, the newly wedded couple enjoyed delightful canapés in the garden before I began shooting the wedding video of the couple in the sensational grounds of Le Manoir, along with the company of photographer David Bostock, who I’ve worked with on a great variety of shoots. Afterwards, a six course wedding breakfast that tasted just as delectable as it looked was served by the amazing staff at Le Manoir.

Once they had all finished their meals, the couple and guests had a tour of the impressive kitchens Le Manoir is home to. Following the fascinating tour, Samantha, Thomas and their guests reveled in the incredible experience of a close-up magic show performed by none other than the famous David Penn, Britain’s leading illusionist and one of the greatest magicians I’ve ever had the pleasure of filming. The breathtaking location, splendid ceremony and cheerful reception provided the perfect combination for a captivating Le Manoir wedding video. Oxfordshire provided the perfect setting for the nuptials of the new Mr. and Mrs. on such a pleasant summer day.
