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

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.
