Millie + Dan Fetcham Park wedding film

Millie + Dan Fetcham Park wedding film

30th July 2016 Millie & Dan – Filmed at Fetcham Park, Surrey

How do you spell love? You don’t spell it, you feel it.”

Millie’s father quoted this exchange between Piglet and Pooh from A.A. Milne’s much-loved classic, as he gave a tribute to his daughter, the ‘baby’ of the family. He confessed the difficulty of handing over his youngest daughter to someone else, but thanked Dan for being such a wonderful person to whom he could ‘hand’ her. Millie and Dan’s wedding was a fabulous day of fun and laughter on a sunny July afternoon, and it began with the festive atmosphere in the bridal party’s dressing room. Millie’s mother wore an extraordinary fuchsia headpiece which matched perfectly with her pale blue outfit. Millie actually wore two dresses over the course of the day- she began in a classically elegant, sleeveless, full skirted satin gown from Pronovias, and then later changed into an equally stunning, sleek strapless number with a beaded belt. Her bridesmaids were gorgeous in lacy, icy blue from Chi Chi London, with tiny discreet sparkles in their hair- the bride and her ladies all wore dainty white lace gloves and carried baby’s breath and pink rose bouquets. Millie’s hair was pinned into a simple but beautiful up-do, and she wore baby blue heels with a subtle but fun pattern which peeked out from under her gown.

After the ceremony, when Millie and Dan could officially start their life as husband and wife, they climbed into a classic convertible adorned with a ‘Just Married’ sign and trailing the traditional tin cans, for their first, leisurely drive as newlyweds. At the reception, Dan recalled their first meeting in Camden Town, when they discovered a mutual love of Lord of the Rings, and he confessed that it wasn’t long before he knew she was The One. He confirmed this with a romantic proposal in New York, and now, as he gazed at his new wife, he proclaimed “I can’t wait to grow old with you.” Their guests were wined and dined in an ornate, gorgeous room at Fetcham Park, with a live band to keep them shimmying around the dance floor. The couple’s beautiful wedding cake from The Custom Cake Boutique was exquisitely decorated with little birds ‘painted’ onto the icing- an unusual and stunning piece of edible artwork! It was a fitting centerpiece for what was a spectacular day for Millie and Dan, and I was overjoyed to be a part of it alongside Fiona Kelly such a wonderful photographer

Faye + Rob wedding video Dorking Surrey

Faye + Rob wedding video Dorking Surrey

The wedding of Faye and Rob on the nineteenth of March was a special day, made even more wonderful by the fact that I filmed the wedding of their Best Man Adam and Bridesmaid Nina in 2012!

You could just feel the love shared between Rob and Faye, along with the excitement they both felt as they took step by step toward each other and their marriage. The intimate and beautiful venue made a lovely setting for their exchange of vows, and you could see that Faye was quivering with excitement and joy as they stood at the alter with their hands joined.

The bride looked absolutely stunning in a mermaid silhouette wedding dress; the sweetheart neckline and lace accented her elegant figure. She walked down the aisle with her father, her blusher framing her beautiful, glowing smile as she moved toward James. The moment where Rob was allowed to kiss his new bride for the first time was a truly dazzling instant, a second locked in time that will be remembered forever!

“Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.” A special reading from the Song of Solomon lends a tender sentiment to the day, speaking to the love shared by a newly joined couple. John, Faye’s father, shared a lovely toast, speaking words of praise, admiration and love for his daughter that caused him to get choked up a bit, and brought a tear to many eyes.

The reception was joyful and exciting in a gorgeous space of Denbies Vineyard. Rob and Faye’s first dance went flawlessly and soon after they invited friends and family to join them on the dance floor as a live band played lively music that got everyone up and dancing! It was an amazing day with an incredible couple, and I’m so glad I got to take part. Thank you for allowing me to capture your memories, Faye and Rob! I wish you all of the best in your future together!

Ian & Jo Farnham Castle wedding video

Jo and Ian Farnham Castle wedding video , 6th of September 2014

Once a hotbed of political intrigue and power struggles, Farnham Castle is now one of the most romantic wedding venues in England and the setting for Jo and Ian’s wedding video Surrey. As Ian and his groomsmen adjusted their cufflinks, Jo and her bridesmaids took their time getting ready in the Gatehouse. I am fairly certain it wouldn’t have mattered what the bridesmaids wore because Ian only had eyes for his breathtaking bride as Jo made her way down the aisle lined with flickering hurricane lanterns.

The pure white backdrop of the Lantern Hall is a fantastic choice for a civil ceremony. It certainly made the colour of the bridesmaids’ dresses even more vivid and ensured all the attention was focused on the happy, yet nervous couple. Any tension dissolved in genuine laughter as the celebrant accidentally got Ian confused with his best man, and it was a delighted wedding party who made their way into Farnham Castle’s magnificent grounds to enjoy cones of miniature fish and chips.

Jo cleverly avoided the problem of her heels sinking into the lawn by swapping her crystal embellished shoes for some more practical yet equally stylish Converse trainers, which allowed her to mingle and chat to her guests with ease. The late summer weather proved perfect for the event and I found it an absolute pleasure to film the happy and relaxed gathering.

Farnham Castle is 900 years old, yet despite the weight of history Jo and Ian created a fantastically relaxed environment where guests of all ages were able to celebrate with them comfortably. Holding the speeches outdoors on the steps allowed everyone to fully appreciate the splendour of the setting, and the onsite accommodation meant there was no need for Ian and Jo to rush through their day. Congratulations Mr and Mrs Charlampowicz.

Kara & Tim wedding Video Great Fosters

Kara & Tim wedding Video Great Fosters, 15th of August 2014

It doesn’t matter how many wedding video Surrey I film, the strength of the sentiment behind a wedding never ceases to touch me. It was no different when Kara and Tim Urquhart were married.
The couple chose the parish church of St Mary the Virgin in Denham for their traditional ceremony. Kara was the epitome of a beautiful English rose as she followed her three bridesmaids down the aisle where Tim was waiting – a little nervously, it has to be said, but it’s rare to find a groom who doesn’t feel a mixture of excitement and nerves as he waits to say his vows. The weather was perfect for a summer wedding, with the only rain being the confetti thrown over the newlyweds as the left the church to the accompaniment of pealing bells.
The happy couple took time out for wedding photographer David Morgan of Make Time Stand Still to do his thing, enjoying the chance to sip chilled sparkling wine from the seat of their vintage limousine before being taken to Great Fosters in Egham. Once a Tudor hunting lodge, the venue boasts a spectacular barn which was decorated with hundreds of twinkling fairy lights and flowers by Tarnia Williams of Flowers 4 Weddings. Jenny North provided the classic tiered wedding cake and, once it had been cut, Kara and Tim took to the dance floor for their first dance together as husband and wife.
Everything came together like a dream for this wedding video Surrey: the location, the weather, and the amazing couple and their guests who had a fantastic time celebrating Tim and Kara’s union. It was a brilliant day and I wish the new Mr and Mrs Urquhart a long and happy marriage.
