Amy & James | Oaktree farm wedding
21st July 2018 Amy & James Oaktree farm marquee wedding video
Amy’s day began in a boutique cottage right in the middle of the market town of Aylesbury; the cottage was full of character and a real joy to film. I knew the day was going to fun to film as me and the photographer Eliza Claire hit it off straight away, which is fantastic for getting those creative juices going. It was great to see some old faces again, I filmed Amy’s brother a few years ago now, so it’s was wonderful to get the recommendation and see the families again. The bride & bridesmaids arrived in style in a pair of vintage Jaguars, pulling up outside St James the Great church where James and Amy were to tie the knot. The reception took place at Oaktree farm, where their marquee, bails of straw, Tepee’s, drinks and games waited for the wedding to arrive.
Our Love Story
James and I met after I had to work through the night at my hotel, I had calls through the evening of loud, disruptive guests, one of which was James, and my receptionist called to see if she should have them removed. I knew this group were friends of a friend and colleague of mine, so I let them stay. When they arrived back after their night out at 4 am, I spoke to the group, some were singing at me and moving fire extinguishers around, but James started to nervously talk to me, (I later found out this was his attempt at flirting). The next day he called our mutual friend and asked him to pass on his details to me, he did, and we started a relationship straight away. We’ve had the best time together since then, and our mutual friend is our best man and the guys singing, claim that because their behaviour was so embarrassing, it made James look better and so it was, in fact, them that helped us get together.
