Nicola + David wedding video The Langham blog

Nicola + David wedding video The Langham blog

Nicola and David were joined together in holy matrimony on 31st December 2015. The backdrop for their exquisite wedding video The Langham: The Langham London. The world famous cocktail bar and cellars has been hosting guests since 1865.While the ladies primped in the bridal suite, the gents greeted the plethora of guests arriving. Once they sealed their vows to love and cherish one another for the rest of their lives, they sealed it with one happy kiss and were on their way to celebrate with friends and family. Nothing quite sums up their love than when David had to hold back tears in the plethora of “”Wow” being the only word to sum up how beautiful his bride Nicola truly is! This wedding was one fun day to remember. Especially when the ring bearers came down the aisle wearing signs: Uncle David…Here comes Auntie Nic Nic. One of the most fun facts about this family: The Father of the Bride is famous Arsenal footballer Brian Talbot. Who happens to be the Groom’s football hero. When David was young, he had his poster on his childhood bedroom wall and grew up to marry his beautiful daughter. The guests gathered for a traditional champagne reception and were entertained with card tricks and caricature portraits while Mark Seymour photographed every loving moment! The reception dinner was full of live music, pink lights, and a whole lot of sparkle. We truly loved being a part of this very elegant affair.

Thank you, Nicola and David! It was a true joy being a part of your special day and helping preserve the memories of the day you said: “I do.” We truly hope every day is just as romantic as the day you joined one another and that you love and cherish each moment from now on!

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!

Emma + Christian In & Out Club London wedding video blog

Emma + Christian In & Out Club London wedding video blog

Emma and Christian said “I do” on the 25th of July 2015. The backdrop of their spectacularly romantic wedding video: The .In & Out Club London The stunning St James’s private members club is for ladies and gentlemen, and officers of the Armed Forces, which made for one genuinely elegant and regal day to remember. I had the distinct pleasure of filming the eldest sister back in 2014, and will be filming the youngest sister in 2016 – 3 sisters in three years. Like Christian said of Emma, “Perhaps it was always written in the stars.” What a joy to be able to witness and make memories of this special occasion for such a lovely family. The day began for Emma with hair and makeup with her bridesmaids at the gorgeously romantic Dellfield House. With shoes, that glitter from Kurt Geiger, white roses, and pretty dresses all laid out for the ceremony — the ladies spent one luxurious morning together being perfectly pampered. Once Emma was buttoned in her beautiful dress by Sottero & Midgley at Brides of Berkhamsted, all it took was the look on the Mother of the Bride’s face to truly tell everyone how spectacular Emma was going to look coming down the aisle. The happy couple left their ceremony for a reception full of live music, a champagne reception, photography by Philippa Sian Photography and fun had by all. Their wedding was full of elegant romance, every step of the way — from the moment you both said “I do” to the toast from Christian to his bride, guests shared laughter and tears of joy. No one at the wedding could deny this was, is and always will be: true love.

Thank you, Emma and Christian! We hope the rest of your lives together are just as perfect as your wedding day.

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.

Maria & Don The Honourable society grays inn wedding video

Maria & Don Honourable society grays inn wedding video 1st Feb 2014

February is a pretty slow month socially, and usually fairly bleak in terms of weather. How fantastic, therefore, to have an invitation to forget winter woes and party with close family and friends in an amazing venue in the heart of London! Don and Maria got every detail of their big day spot on, but I got the impression that the ceiling could have fallen in and the catastrophe would have simply rolled over this couple without dimming their delight at being married.

It was a huge treat to make this wedding video Gray’s Inn. The entire day was the perfect blend of occasion and fun. Guests were chauffeured to the venue in an iconic red London double-decker bus which provided a bright splash of colour on a dull day. The Honourable Society’s buildings are steeped in ancient character and added a real sense that Don and Maria were creating their own footnote in history rather than simply tying the knot.

The formality of the Pension Room didn’t stop the ceremony being full of laughter and joy firstly as Maria, looking incredible in a designer wedding dress of pewter lace, was accompanied down the aisle by her sons, then again as the ecstatic bride danced her way out on the arm of her new husband. The sense of celebration continued into the reception with the groom’s sister delivering a witty speech in rhyme before Madhen had guests up and dancing with their energetic choice of music.

In all my years producing wedding video London, the romance and joy of the occasion still has the power to move me. Don and Maria’s happiness was shared by their guests who took genuine pleasure in seeing this couple affirm their love for each other and their families. It was a privilege to have been involved in such a wonderful day.
