Lesley & Chris a Wasing Park Wedding video, 22nd of February 2014
With two gorgeous children of their own there was never any doubt that Lesley and Chris’s event would be as much a celebration of family as a wedding ceremony. Wasing Park was a fantastic choice for a winter wedding and I had a great time making this Wasing park wedding video Berkshire. The couple couldn’t have wished for a better day. The sun was shining, the crocuses were in flower and daffodils were just starting to break through to signal the start of spring. It was everything an English country wedding video could be.
Lesley gave a lot of thought to the comfort of her bridesmaids and mum, kitting them all out with personalised bathrobes and slippers as they were made up by the team at Beauty by Katrina. Wasing Park offers a choice of ceremony venues and it was a beautiful and excited bride who walked across the gravel path to the 15th Century St Nicholas’ church.
After the vows the guests were free to enjoy the stunning parkland of the Wasing Park Estate – a backdrop which made the job much easier for photographer Studio Rouge and me. Guests tucked into mini burgers and cute cones of fish and chips in The Castle Barn, which had been decorated with all white flowers by Cherubs Floral Design. The centrepiece was a stunning five tiered cake in pure white by Cakes by Shelly. The effect was soft yet dramatically romantic and an effective contrast to the rustic brick and wooden interior. The idea of replacing a traditional guest book with a fingerprint picture was a fun way to create a memory that will be displayed rather than tucked away in a drawer.
I really enjoyed filming this Wasing Park wedding video with a reception as fun as this. Lesley and Chris struck a great balance between elegance and comfort, creating a delightful atmosphere where the kids, including their children Molly and Albie, could enjoy the party as much as the adults. It was a treat to work with such a lovely family.
