Millie + Dan Fetcham Park wedding film

30th July 2016 Millie & Dan – Filmed at Fetcham Park, Surrey

How do you spell love? You don’t spell it, you feel it.”

Millie’s father quoted this exchange between Piglet and Pooh from A.A. Milne’s much-loved classic, as he gave a tribute to his daughter, the ‘baby’ of the family. He confessed the difficulty of handing over his youngest daughter to someone else, but thanked Dan for being such a wonderful person to whom he could ‘hand’ her. Millie and Dan’s wedding was a fabulous day of fun and laughter on a sunny July afternoon, and it began with the festive atmosphere in the bridal party’s dressing room. Millie’s mother wore an extraordinary fuchsia headpiece which matched perfectly with her pale blue outfit. Millie actually wore two dresses over the course of the day- she began in a classically elegant, sleeveless, full skirted satin gown from Pronovias, and then later changed into an equally stunning, sleek strapless number with a beaded belt. Her bridesmaids were gorgeous in lacy, icy blue from Chi Chi London, with tiny discreet sparkles in their hair- the bride and her ladies all wore dainty white lace gloves and carried baby’s breath and pink rose bouquets. Millie’s hair was pinned into a simple but beautiful up-do, and she wore baby blue heels with a subtle but fun pattern which peeked out from under her gown.

After the ceremony, when Millie and Dan could officially start their life as husband and wife, they climbed into a classic convertible adorned with a ‘Just Married’ sign and trailing the traditional tin cans, for their first, leisurely drive as newlyweds. At the reception, Dan recalled their first meeting in Camden Town, when they discovered a mutual love of Lord of the Rings, and he confessed that it wasn’t long before he knew she was The One. He confirmed this with a romantic proposal in New York, and now, as he gazed at his new wife, he proclaimed “I can’t wait to grow old with you.” Their guests were wined and dined in an ornate, gorgeous room at Fetcham Park, with a live band to keep them shimmying around the dance floor. The couple’s beautiful wedding cake from The Custom Cake Boutique was exquisitely decorated with little birds ‘painted’ onto the icing- an unusual and stunning piece of edible artwork! It was a fitting centerpiece for what was a spectacular day for Millie and Dan, and I was overjoyed to be a part of it alongside Fiona Kelly such a wonderful photographer

Faye + Rob wedding video Dorking Surrey

The wedding of Faye and Rob on the nineteenth of March was a special day at Denbies Vineyard, made even more wonderful by the fact that I filmed the wedding of their Best Man Adam and Bridesmaid Nina in 2012!

You could just feel the love shared between Rob and Faye, along with the excitement they both felt as they took step by step toward each other and their marriage. The intimate and beautiful venue made a lovely setting for their exchange of vows, and you could see that Faye was quivering with excitement and joy as they stood at the alter with their hands joined.

The bride looked absolutely stunning in a mermaid silhouette wedding dress; the sweetheart neckline and lace accented her elegant figure. She walked down the aisle with her father, her blusher framing her beautiful, glowing smile as she moved toward James. The moment where Rob was allowed to kiss his new bride for the first time was a truly dazzling instant, a second locked in time that will be remembered forever!

“Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.” A special reading from the Song of Solomon lends a tender sentiment to the day, speaking to the love shared by a newly joined couple. John, Faye’s father, shared a lovely toast, speaking words of praise, admiration and love for his daughter that caused him to get choked up a bit, and brought a tear to many eyes.

The reception was joyful and exciting in a gorgeous space of Denbies Vineyard. Rob and Faye’s first dance went flawlessly and soon after they invited friends and family to join them on the dance floor as a live band played lively music that got everyone up and dancing! It was an amazing day with an incredible couple, and I’m so glad I got to take part. Thank you for allowing me to capture your memories, Faye and Rob! I wish you all of the best in your future together!
