Sarah + Ali wedding film Lains Barn


21st October 2017 Sarah and Ali wedding film Lains Barn

Sometimes all it takes is one meeting to realize that you have found the perfect life partner. You don’t need months or years to realize that you both are meant for each other. That’s how things were for Ali and Sarah. Ali knew from the 2nd date that he wanted to marry her. The proposal finally happened during a hot air balloon ride in Myanmar (Burma) and that led to 21st October 2017; the day of this fabulous wedding film Lains Barn in Oxfordshire.

Ali and Sarah celebrated their special day at Lains Barn surrounded by friends and family. Sarah wore an elegant white wedding dress from Mori Lee with a lace bodice that hugged her body and made her look like a princess. Her stylish shoes were from TOMS espadrilles and the Zomorodian Jewelry she wore belonged to the Iranian culture and added a nice touch to her entire look. Her hair and makeup was gorgeously done by Marianne from the BBC.

The bridesmaids wore matching grey dresses by Bentall’s and were actually hemmed by the mother of the bride. Isn’t that cool? During the wedding ceremony, the couple shared their vision about how they want their married life to look like. Promises were made, and vows were said, which in the end left everyone a bit teary.
It was a beautiful ceremony and the wedding décor was phenomenal. The floral arrangement was done by Kathy Cunliffe (mother of the bride) and the baker behind the cake was Sophie Moir who is a good friend of the couple.

At the reception, the couple enjoyed their first dance on the dance floor and later was joined by the rest of the guests. The live music played by The Cumberland Ceilidh Band was immensely enjoyed by the crowd.

In capturing this special day it’s always a great pleasure to work alongside my good friend and photographer Dale Stephen!

Sarah and Ali are perfect for each other, I wish them the best of luck for the future!

Carol + Young Milton Hill House wedding film

Carol + Young Milton Hill House wedding film, Oxfordshire

14th October 2017 Carol + Young Milton Hill House wedding film, Oxfordshire

Weddings are the best representation of happiness. They are so magical and seeing two individuals tie the knot and promise to stay by each other’s side through thick and thin is so heartwarming. This is exactly how I felt during Carol and Young’s Japanese wedding video Oxfordshire. The couple tied the knot on 14 October 2017 at the Milton Hill House. It was such a breathtaking venue.

Carol wore a stunning white lace dress from Bicester Bridal that draped her body perfectly. It was a pure example of simplicity and elegance combined into one. Her white lace-up shoes were equally beautiful and something every bride would want to wear on her special day. The shoes were from Perfect Vintage while the bows and ribbons were added by PamicDolls. Carol’s hair was tied into an elegant braid with beads and some curled loose ends framed her face, a great masterpiece by Katie-Jane Whitlock. She did not wear too much makeup and I was amazed at how fresh she looked, probably beaming of excitement. Her makeup artist was Chris Howells and she surely did a splendid job of keeping it natural.

Watching the couple talk, laugh and kiss, we can easily tell that apart from being in love, they are very good friends; the type of friends who aren’t afraid to be themselves in front of each other.

Carol and Young were joined by their close family members and friends on their special day. It was a Japanese inspired wedding with exquisite flower arrangement from Violet Gardens and the decorations from The Final Flourish. There was even a decadent chocolate fountain from Chocolate Fondue Company and a cake by Reindeer Café.

The bride and groom’s faces were beaming with happiness and excitement as they made their vows and sealed the deal with rings from Purely Diamonds and Carbon 6. Every moment of joy, togetherness and contentment was caught on camera by me and watching their Japanese wedding film made me almost tear up! I wish the happy couple a lifetime together and may their love continue to grow and flourish.

Daisie + Chris Sudbury House wedding film

Daisie + Chris Sudbury House wedding film, Oxfordshire

8th September 2017 Daisie + Chris Sudbury House wedding film, Oxfordshire

 When two close friends decide to tie the knot and start a life together, that’s the best decision ever. That is exactly what Daisie and Christopher did; two amazing and kind souls came together as one on 8th September 2017 at Sudbury House Hotel.

The happy couple’s family and friends were a huge part of the celebration and every single face was beaming during the entire event. Best man, bridesmaids and groomsmen; everyone was a big part of everything and both the bride and groom were delighted to be surrounded by their loved ones.

Daisie and Christopher had been living together for 4 years, so they both knew that they would end up spending their lives together. The deal was sealed when Christopher proposed and that is when the wedding preps began.

Wedding décor was absolutely stunning and the floral arrangement by our friends over at Fabulous Flowers made things even better. Just like the decorations, the food was exquisite as well all thanks to Sudbudy House/ Rupert Belcher (Perfect Porker).

The wedding dress by Proposals Whitney made Daisie look the star of the event (which she actually was). The delicate white lace constructed into a sleeveless V-neck dress that draped the bride’s body beautifully was a true masterpiece. Seagis (makeup artist) and Emily Murray (hairstylist) all played a role in making sure that Daisie looked stunning on her special day. Her ring and jewelry were from Michael Lyons which went with the dress very well.

The bridesmaids wore elegant pastel blue dresses also by Proposals Witney. Christopher and his best man and groomsmen wore suits from Dominos Witney which made them look like true gentleman.

The huge white tiered cake was from Diane Herd and the married couple surely had a fun time cutting it. The Sudbury House Wedding Film captured the ceremony in moving form and the still images were taken by Jacqueline Cross.

Before the wedding was over, the couple enjoyed their first dance with music by Star Sound Express. For Daisie and Christopher, it’s all about teamwork and that could clearly be seen throughout the ceremony. They surely make the best team without a doubt!

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.

Phoebe + James Wedding Film Aynhoe Park


22nd June 2017 Phoebe and James’ Wedding Film Aynhoe Park

The 22nd of June 2017 a memorable day for James and Phoebe as they tied the knot in the presence of close family and friends. On this beautiful day, happiness and joy oozed, the venue Aynhoe Park helped create the magical backdrop. The historical mansion beautified by the white deer and the scenic views of green trees and grass gave a romantic and appealing feel to the wedding.

The special bond shared by James and Phoebe was evident in their loving embrace and warm kisses. The words of the bride’s father captured the moments magically and showed the intensity of the couples love and personality as he expressed his feeling about the couple. His words expressed the unique personality of the couples that have made them stand out. He described the bride as a beautiful, elegant woman, wife and mother and mentioned liking James from the first time he met him.

From the preparation of the couple in the beautiful and light-filled rooms to the beautiful moments where the bride walked down the aisle in her beautiful and breathtaking wedding dress. She was supported by her bridesmaids, her father, and her cute daughter who looked like a little angel. One of the most wonderful highlights was Vivienne, the couple’s daughter trying to tie her father’s shoe laces.

At Aynhoe Park everyone felt the love in the air as the groom waited for his bride anxiously and as the couple said their vows and sealed it with a kiss; I knew this union would last forever!

Guests were treated to a wonderful moment and were amazed by the beauty around them. The music delivered by the talented Jesse Ware and Klangkarusse livened up the wedding party. As the couple shared their first dance, everyone watched them in admiration. Everyone attending this wedding brought their best dancing shoes. It was simply amazing!

I am super happy for these two, thanks, Phoebe and James for letting me experience the insane amount of fun I had on your special day!

When Rebecca and Joseph tied the knots on April 13, 2017 at the Fabulous SOHO Farmhouse, it was a special union just like the beginning of their relationship.

The couple savored the precious moment as they walked out while the guests who came to witness such a memorable day cheered on. The groomsmen made it more memorable with the funny and incredible groom’s traditions they performed.

As he thanked everyone, the glow of happiness could not escape the camera light as it was glaring that he has been made the happiest man alive by marrying Rebecca.

The wedding reception was spectacular; the venue was decorated with flowers, filled with merry, love, and good food.  It was a scene made for the camera and I was very excited to document each moment.

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!

Kelly and Brian wedding video Oxford blog

Kelly and Brian wedding video Oxford blog

It is always a pleasure to be able to share in the joy of a wedding day, and the marriage of Kelly and Brian on the eighth of August, two-thousand fifteen was especially wonderful. The beautiful day was enhanced with the happiness shared by the family and friends who joined them on this special day. Not many couples completely nail a perfect wedding, but to say this special day shared with Kelly and Brian was magical, would be an understatement. Both of the gorgeous venues are richly steeped in history. The Brasenose College and Oxford Union both offer such an elegant atmosphere for a beautiful wedding, and are both quite special to this American couple who attended school here. This magical place is where they met and fell in love, so having their wedding here was a natural choice.

“Love is when you can stare at each other for hours, and your cheeks will hurt every time.”

Not a single detail or moment was missed by the photographer, Barker Evans, and the classic beauty of Kelly and Brian made this a gorgeous wedding to film. The bride wore a lovely and demure dress in soft ivory, with a lace overlay that showed off her shoulders, and reached to three quarter length sleeves. The full ball gown skirt emphasized her figure, and her handsome husband looked perfect in a black tuxedo beside her. A chapel length veil finished Kelly’s ensemble, floating elegantly in the breeze while walking down beautiful cobblestone streets together. The intimate moments shared by these two were magical – they were able to get lost in each other, allowing for some truly wonderful footage to be capture. You can just feel the love between Brian and Kelly, as they talk, as they smile, as they kiss, and as they hold hands. This is a love that will last forever, and you can see it in their faces when they smile at each other.

I’m so lucky to have been able to shoot this wedding video Oxford, and I am very much looking forward to seeing Brian and Kelly next year! I will be providing videography services for Kelly’s sister’s wedding in 2017 in Colorado USA!

Congratulations, Kelly and Brian. May you always remember the happiness from today, and let it guide you through your tomorrows.

Bonnie + Martin Aynhoe Park wedding video blog

Bonnie + Martin Aynhoe Park wedding video blog

An intimate affair to remember, Bonnie & Martin said “I do” in one of the most joyous ways possible — in big, bold colour. In a world full of imagination and excitement, where two people dared to dream beyond love. With the picturesque Aynhoe Park Oxfordshire as the backdrop to their wedding video, filled with the largest collection of UK taxidermy, the sky really was the limit when it came to capturing the wonder-filled love between Bonnie and Martin. This Aynhoe Park wedding video really has been one of my favourite to shoot to this very day, because it was simply one “really out there place!” I knew the possibilities would be endless with this truly romantic, far out couple. Both Bonnie and Martin work in the film industry as stunt doubles. Both are quite successful in their careers: Bonnie as Angelina Jolie in Maleficent and Martin for Johnny Depp. A very fun fact about this adorably quirky couple: Martin married the girl he first saw in a 1980’s music video! Bonnie and Martin’s reception was simply paradise. A scrumptious champagne reception was held on the lawn with family, friends and loved ones. Followed by a grand dinner, more champagne, and fire pits as the sun went down. This wedding was nothing but spectacular — especially when the couple hit the dance floor for one epic first dance. The talented duo entertained guests and showed just how far their love goes for one another in one amazingly acrobatic dance lift! The wedding of Bonnie and Martin truly was one filled with art, love, romance and creativity. We truly hope the rest of your years together are filled with all of that and so much more. Thank you for letting us be a part of your very special day

The famous country house and golf course, filled with natural beauty, were truly one perfect wedding venue. True childhood sweethearts, Gemma, and Chris, planned one amazing day to remember for all of their family and friends. The entire day embodied Gemma’s personality — full of life and so very fun. One wedding full of nothing but love. Love for friends, love for family and love for one another. Gemma lit up the room in her dress by Butterfly Bridal Boutique. The groomsmen followed suit in tales accented with gorgeous Tiffany blue ties and top hats that were to die for! The ushers soon passed out wedding programs embossed with Tiffany blue ribbons and jewels. The attention to detail truly made it one ceremony to remember. After the happy couple had vowed their eternal love for one another, they made their epic walk out of the church through a sea of flower petals. Photographer Neil Hanson caught every special moment on camera as the day seemed to fly by in an extraordinary way. The reception was simple, elegant and full of special touches. From the cutting of the cake to Gemma’s dance with her father, nothing was spared in wedding detail and quaint elegance.
