11th October 2020 Jenny & Ryan wedding video | Oxfordshire videographer.

 

Our Love Story

 
How did you guys meet?
 
Jenny worked with Ryan’s brother at Virgin Media and met Ryan in Oxford on a night out.
 
Tell me a bit about the two of you, what do you guys do? How do you spend your time?
 
Ryan is a bricklayer, Jenny an ICT manager – we enjoy each others company so just having quiet evenings at home, during the week one of us is usually busy with hobbies like football or Jenny’s at work late so weekends especially Sundays are our ‘us’ time.
 
How did the proposal go down? (all the gushy details, I love this bit!)
 
Jenny had been dropping hints for around a year before the proposal but it was just at home on Saturday evening before we were planning on going out to dinner at Jenny’s mums.
 
How did you choose your wedding venue(s)?
 
We knew we wanted a Church Wedding, it was just where – Horspath or Wheatley as Jenny has connections to both. Jenny’s parents and grandparents both married at Wheatley so that’s how we chose that. Ryan liked the Crazy Bear for a reception so after viewing it we knew it was right for us.
 
What sort of experience do you want your guests to have?
 
I want them to just enjoy the day as much as we will. I want them to feel relaxed, drink plenty and have a good old boogie.
 
Can you describe some of the details and stylings, does your wedding have a theme?
 
The crazy bear didn’t need much ‘styling’ I think the venue covers that just by the decoration, we tried keeping everything quite simple. We went with just a colour scheme of Navy/Burgundy/Blush/Gold – Pinterest can be dangerous for designs and extras.
 
What advice would you give to couples planning a wedding?
 
I know it’ll be the biggest day of your lives, but include the people around you they are just as much as excited as you are and they do appreciate being involved. Also to go with your gut, don’t let others talk you out of anything if you want it have it otherwise you’ll just regret it.

28th September 2019 Jasmine & Eisuke wedding video | Buckinghamshire videographer

Our Love Story

 
How did you guys meet?
 
Jasmine is Malaysian and Eisuke is Japanese. The wedding will have themes from both our cultures.
 
Tell me a bit about the two of you, what do you guys do? How do you spend your time?
 
Jasmine is an obstetrician and spends most of her time delivering babies. Eisuke works for a Japanese drinks company and is a massive Liverpool fan. We enjoy watching sports , cooking and eating good food and travelling.
How did the proposal go down? (all the gushy details, I love this bit!)
 
Like all good proposals it did not go exactly according to plan. Jasmine forgot she was on call and came home late at 11pm. However, the answer was obviously yes.
 
How did you choose your wedding venue(s)?
 
We wanted a family friendly venue with beautiful gardens and on site accommodation/ parking. We fell in love when we visited Stoke Place on a whim on a random Sunday. It is also in Buckinghamshire where Eisuke grew up, and not too far from London, where we both live.
What sort of experience do you want your guests to have?
 
We wanted to include all our friends’ children so decided to have a child friendly wedding. We want everyone to have a good time in a relaxed setting and enjoy the amazing food at Stoke Place Hotel.
 
Can you describe some of the details and stylings, does your wedding have a theme?
 
Cherry blossom elements from Japan form the centerpieces of the tables. There will be origami cranes both as decoration and in each napkin fold. The wedding cake has elements of Malaysian (pandan tier) and Japanese (Yuzu tier) with traditional Malaysian snacks during drinks.
What was the hardest decision during the planning?
 
Picking an invitation card, surprisingly! The final card has both cherry blossom elements, and gold foil embossing.
 
What advice would you give to couples planning a wedding?
 
We plan to play this video for our families abroad who cannot be with us on our wedding day in London.
This will also be screened in our Malaysian wedding in April 2020. We hope to incorporate views of British manor house and throwing of confetti (something not familiar to Malaysians!)

21st September 2019 Vicky & Joe wedding video | Oxfordshire videographer

 

Our Love Story

 
How did the proposal go down? (all the gushy details, I love this bit!)
 
For Joe, the hardest part of the proposal was asking my dad (something I had made very clear needed to happen!) So he snuck off round to see my parents when I was busy working one weekend. He arrived with a big bunch of flowers for my mum ‘to thank her for all she does for us’ and then asked where my dad was. She told him he was having his haircut and would be back soon – which he was, with a smaller bunch of flowers for my mum (first son-in-law error – do not beat the size bunch of flowers!!). So, my dad, obviously slightly annoyed (and making it apparent calling Joe a ‘Twat’ in a playful manner) at the flower situation decides to ask Joe to help him move some garden furniture. Joe thinks, this is perfect he has him on his own and can ask the big question – apart from he bottled it!! The next thing he knows they are sat down having lunch (again much to my dad’s annoyance, he thought he had his wife to himself for the day!!) The conversation came up about what my dad should buy my mum for her upcoming birthday, in Joes head he was suggesting a fascinator, I’d like to marry your daughter, but no still nothing came out his mouth!! SO lunch was finished and cleared up, Joe had now stayed much longer than he expected, my dad had settled down into an afternoon of sport and my curious mum was beginning to wonder what on earth was going on, and so asked Joe ‘you alright?’ to which he said ‘can you both sit down I need to ask you something!!’ very abruptly! My mum shoved my dad and to stop watching the tv and listen to Joe (oh yes he had annoyed him again, as his beloved Man Utd were about to kick off!!) with no more said, Joe finally said ‘ I want to make the holiday in Crotia amazing, David I want to ask for your daughters hand in marriage’ To which his response was OH!!!! The longest 10 seconds later he stood up and said of course and gave him a hug – they chatted for about 5 minutes and finally Joe left!!!
He then completely took me by surprise on our first night in Croatia, Joe has never been able to hide surprises but this one he did. He snuck the ring through the airport in his hand luggage – which I had gone through that morning. We had arrived around 9pm, eaten a quick dinner and headed to the bar for a glass of wine. Joe was restless and wanted to head back to the room, I assumed he was tired from the journey so agreed (even though I didn’t’ want too!!) on the way past the bar Joe suggested getting a glass of champagne to take back to the room, this should have been my first point of suspicion. When we got to the room he asked me if I needed the toilet, I giggled and said I was okay to which he said okay I am going to go (I did think he was acting weird now!!) I went out to the balcony to listen to the sea and Joe then came out with a little envelope (a gift I had got him for his 30th Birthday a few months before, when one was completed you opened the next) seeing as we had completed the one before Joe suggested I opened the next. I did and then saw the words ‘Will you marry me??’ I looked up and there Joe was on one knee with the most sparkly ring I’d ever seen. I cried and continued to say ‘Oh my god, oh my god’ and like my dad, kept Joe in suspense before saying ‘YESSSS!!!’
 
How did you choose your wedding venue(s)?
 
We saw it on Facebook and both absolutely loved it as soon as we went there, we wanted a barn but this was modern and bright and just perfect
 
What sort of experience do you want your guests to have?
We just want them to have the most fun, and dance all night and enjoy the food.
 
Can you describe some of the details and stylings, does your wedding have a theme?
 
Well, we have a lot of jazz! We also have a bit of a wine theme going on, you will see the table plan will be on wine bottles and one featuring in the table decorations. We have also got some gorgeous flowers.
