Phoebe + James Wedding Film Aynhoe Park

PHOEBE AND JAMES’ WEDDING FILM AYNHOE PARK, OXFORDSHIRE

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!

There was no dull moment as everyone laughed and created magical moments for me to capture.

 

……… “She is one of the hardest working people I have ever met and that is because she comes from a family of hard workers. She works hard every day to ensure we have a better life. Why do I love Jenny? Jenny is just Jenny and that’s why I love Jenny.”

Sophie and Pete couldn’t have chosen a more perfect venue for their wedding. The venues St. Mary’s Church and Iscoyd Park were exquisite, providing a romantic country house wedding atmosphere that magically makes you feel at home. There was no shortage of beautiful flowers supplied by Wild floral, which added so much beauty to the occasion on this sunny day.

Vicky and Anna from Bridal Hair and Make-up of Cheshire did an excellent job with Sophies hair and makeup. Pete looked classic in a navy-blue suit, with black shoes. Stepping into the white romantic chapel on her father’s arm, Sophie walked eagerly towards her groom, as he waited patiently for the long-awaited moment. As the vows that solidified their union flowed from their lips.

All that I am, I give to you.”

The chemistry between Sophie and Pete was shared with friends and family as the day progressed. The wedding coordinator Jen from Iscoyd Park did a wonderful job and thanks to the good music by The English Country Gentlemen, everyone was entertained and had so much fun.

 May 6th, 2017 was a beautiful day for the wedding of Amanda and François. It started perfectly, from the cool breeze to the breathtaking views of the Chiltern hills and large trees that surround West Wycombe Park, Buckinghamshire.

The bridesmaids looked stunning in a beautifully designed purple dress. The bride, in a beautiful dress with a three-quarter length lace overlay that showed off her shoulders. The groom and groomsmen also looked elegant dressed in matching black tuxedos

As I captured the moment where Francois turned around to see Amanda for the first time in her wedding dress, I knew the love between this two was pure!

The bride walked into the church to sounds of trumpets walking in elegantly with her long veil floating behind her, Amanda and François said I do in the presence of family and friends, it was indeed a magical moment, even more so when they were showered with confetti as they left as man & wife.

The scenery was breathtaking, the well-decorated venue, the laughter, made each moment magical.

 

“……. I was captivated by her beauty, her intelligence, poise, and distinction. I will like to thank my beloved Amanda, my rock, the love of my life, for loving me just the way I am and for choosing to spend the rest of my life with me. I love you my darling.”

 

As François said these words, I could feel the love in his voice, and I was certain that the love between would last a life time.

Everyone was relaxed, sipping champagne surrounded by close friends as the music played on. The newlyweds took their first dance, everyone watched in awe.  It was an absolute pleasure to work alongside the extremely talented photographers who also captured beautiful moments.

 The beauty and humility shown by both the groom and bride made this wedding film Soho Farmhouse one of the most inspiring wedding videos I have ever shot. The romance I witnessed at this wedding was heartwarming and almost unbeatable and as the couple glanced at each other on several occasion, you could tell that it was a match made from heaven.

8th April 2017 Catherine Rose + Gavin Stuart Sealey wedding film Pendley Manor, Buckinghamshire

Catherine Rose & Gavin Stuart Sealey’s wedding was everything dreams are made of. Pendley Manor has beautiful scenery, from the trees, the flowers, to the stunning structures, provided the perfect atmosphere for a gorgeous wedding. 8th April 2017 was indeed a beautiful day.

The bride looked lovely in a white wedding gown by Confetti Bridal Wear, What better way to make the wedding colourful than the bridesmaid’s Phase Eight blue dress. They all looked beautiful at the entrance as they waited for the bride and created beautiful moments for me to capture.

The groom looked elegant in a blue tuxedo as he waited for his bride patiently, you could see the anxiousness in his eyes. As Catherine Rose walked in gracefully with her father by her side, the atmosphere was filled with love, tears, and joy.

As they said, “I do” and kissed for the first time as a couple, friends and family who came to witness the union cheered on. It was also a beautiful sight when loved ones showered the newlyweds with confetti as they walked out of ALL SAINTS’ church creating magical moments for me to film.

Catherine, you look stunning and you are even more beautiful on the inside. I am so happy that you are going to be my wife. I look forward to growing grey with you…”

As Gavin said these words to his wife, she looked at him with love.  The love between these two was evident as they held hands, laughed, kissed, and walked together.

Everyone watched as Catherine and Garvin dance for the first time as a couple under the light-filled hall. Thanks to the music of DJ Discos, the couple displayed their best dance steps yet. These two couldn’t get their hands off each other and I feel so grateful to capture these special moments for them.

Filming alongside the very talented Liz Greenhalgh was exhilarating; we both had lots of fun with this amazing couple. I can’t even put into plain words how amazing it was spending time with these two beautiful souls.

Cheers to the two lovebirds and their perfect wedding!

Stephanie + Eddie Caswell House wedding film

Stephanie + Eddie Caswell House wedding film

26th November 2016 Stephanie & Eddie– Filmed at Caswell House, Oxfordshire

On a crisp November day, I was thrilled to document the wedding of Stephanie and Eddie, in a winter wonderland celebration at Caswell House that mirrored the couple’s love of the outdoors, particularly of the snow! As an Olympic Mogul skier, Eddie was thrilled to discover that Stephanie could not only keep up with him on the slopes but also matched his enthusiasm and sense of adventure during their first trip to Switzerland together. Their wedding, although missing the element of real snow (Oxfordshire wasn’t quite able to recreate the white peaks of Switzerland) still had the feel of a classically elegant celebration with the simple cleanness of a winter’s morning on the piste.

Stephanie’s jaw-dropping gown was fit for a queen, in shimmering satin with an asymmetric design and glorious full skirt. Her hair was gathered delicately in a regal yet soft style, with a halo of gentle curls around her face. Her two flower girls were angelic in white, with mini fur shrugs, and they made a very charming pair as they slowly made their way up the aisle ahead of Stephanie’s arrival, placing petals on the floor one by one! The guests were enchanted by the two little girls, who eventually reached the end of the aisle and enabled Stephanie to begin her own important journey with her new husband.

Eddie and Stephanie gazed in adoration at each other during their short and sweet ceremony and emerged as husband and wife with beaming smiles. At their reception, Eddie thanked his new bride for making him “a better version of myself” and graciously thanked her father for inviting him officially into the family. The couple’s wedding cake was aptly graceful in icy blue, with five enormous tiers and a layer of blue icing ruffles at the base. Their first dance was upbeat and incorporated a fun routine- Eddie, in particular, showed off his superstar moves! It was a joyful occasion from start to finish, and I wish the couple many happy adventures both on the ski slopes and off!

Ronnie + Nikki Notley Tythe Barn wedding film

Ronnie + Nikki Notley Tythe Barn wedding film

8th October 2016 Ronnie & Nikki – Filmed at Notley Tythe Barn, Long Crendon, Buckinghamshire

“Ronnie doesn’t judge me, he joins in, so that we can be weirdos together”

This was a wedding with beaming smiles from start to finish, with self-confessed ‘goof’ Nikkie marrying her Prince Charming, Ronnie on a lovely Autumnal day at Notley Tythe Barn in Buckinghamshire. Although the above assertion may have attracted many laughs from the guests, it was nonetheless an important acknowledgement from the bride of the wonderful compatibility that the couple obviously enjoyed. The groom thanked the couple’s family and friends gathered together during his toast, commenting that although it was the couple’s big day, it wouldn’t have been nearly as good without all of their loved ones there with them. It was a true celebration of two families joining together, and it was filled with fun  and laughter throughout the day.

Nikkie was glowing in a stunning gown with lace applique detail that accentuated her wonderful figure- and despite being rather diminutive next to her very tall new husband, her astonishing beauty and love of fun added to her larger-than-life presence! The lace detail of her dress was particularly noticeable in a subtly elegant motif around her collarbone, which matched the sparkling tiara that was nestled in her dark curls. Her bridesmaids were by her side in strapless, deep blue gowns, along with her two adorable flower-girls.

The wedding party arrived in a stately Rolls Royce, and made that all-important walk down the aisle in a cosy, intimate venue filled with their family and friends. At the reception, guests were greeted by a selection of fun photo collages to remind everyone of some of the couple’s happiest memories together. Their gorgeous cake was ‘embroidered’ with icing hearts, and featured a pair of Owls holding a little banner that stated “Owl Love You Forever.” I have no doubt that this promise will be fulfilled by this charming and fun-loving couple, whom I was privileged to witness sharing this happy, joyful day.

Katie + Chris Heythrop Park wedding film

Katie + Chris Heythrop Park wedding film

1st October 2016 Katie & Chris – Filmed at Heythrop Park, Oxfordshire

I was honoured to document the fairytale wedding of Chris and Katie at Heythrop Park in Oxfordshire, on a rainy but glorious October day. This was a day of light, laughter, wonderful sparkling detail and a venue to match the pride and joy of the couple and their loved ones. At the reception, Katie’s father gave a moving tribute to his own marriage during his toast, and commented shrewdly “it’s a good wife, that makes a good marriage!” His advice clearly resonated with the glowing couple, who had committed to both ensuring their happiness in marriage!

Katie was certainly the princess of the day, in her stunning strapless gown with a full skirt, sparkling beaded detail throughout and a scalloped hem. Her look was topped off by glittering, red, Dorothy-esque shoes, that she clicked together to signal the start of her special day. The bridesmaids were suitably matching in ethereal attire- their lavender dresses were elevated by lovely white lace bodice overlays. The maid of honour looked gorgeous in pale, blushing pink. Two of the bridesmaids were accompanied down the aisle by strapping young mini-groomsmen, one of whom delivered a charming reading from the much-loved animated film, Frozen. Accompanied by a groomsman to support him, the plucky young Frankie read a dramatized version of ‘Love Is an Open Door’ and despite becoming slightly overwhelmed by the emotion of the occasion he gave a fabulous performance and ran the risk of stealing the show during the ceremony!

At the reception, the grandeur of Heythrop Park provided the perfect, elegant background for the continuation of the fairytale theme. The wedding party was entertained by singing and dancing from their waiters and waitresses, a fun and surprising additional touch to proceedings. The couple’s extraordinary cake was also appropriately elaborate, with several tiers and exquisite decoration to suit a Prince and his Princess.
