Stephanie + John Le Manoir Wedding Film


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.

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.
