Nicola + Daniel Cliveden House wedding video

23rd December 2017 Nicola + Daniel Cliveden house wedding video, Buckinghamshire

Life is better when you have someone by your side.

Nicola & Daniel tied the knot on 23rd December 2017 at Cliveden House. A stunning architectural house that served as the perfect setting for such a festive day and a fantastic backdrop to this Cliveden house wedding video. Nicola wore a breathtaking white lace gown by Nicole Spose Milano, the dress was accompanied by white classy heels by Soie and all her jewelry plus wedding rings were from Tiffany and Co. Her fiery red hair tied into an updo by Nicole Stadelmann complimented her dress and personality amazingly well, and with makeup by Jo Cable everything was perfect.

The bridesmaids have been friends with the Nicola since they were all toddlers, so they obviously had to accompany Nicola’s journey through this amazing day. From helping her get ready to making sure everything went well, the bridesmaids were always there wearing striking dark gowns.

Nicola’s dogs attended the wedding too (Nicola couldn’t leave them out) and they even walked down the aisle with the flower girls, adorable!

The very special festive ceremony was conducted by a family friend all the way from South Africa, Pastor Carter. The reception was wonderful, and everyone had a great time eating and drinking canapés and champagne. The amazing cake by cake maker Ann’s Designer Cakes went down well with the evenings coffee, all surrounded by the amazing flowers by The Wedding Flower Company.

The evening continued as everyone danced the night away to music performed by The 80’s Club (Nicola loves the 80’s). It was a pleasure capturing everything along with the amazing Sarah from Stirling photography.

A very special wedding day Nicola and Daniel may I wish you both a very happy life together!

Mollie + Ollie Brill Church & Notley Farm wedding video, Buckinghamshire

16th December 2017 Mollie + Ollie Notley Farm wedding video, Buckinghamshire

It is not very often I get to film a local wedding in Brill Church, so it was fantastic when I was asked to film and create a wedding film for a local Brill family. It was a pleasure capturing Mollie Ludlow marrying her childhood sweetheart Ollie Stringer just before Christmas on the 16th December 2017.

Snow was still on the ground and a cold chill was in the air when guests arrived at the ceremony in Brill church. Mollie arrived in style in a John Deere tractor and heated trailer to an eagerly waiting Ollie. As the wedding tractor made its way through the pretty hilltop village of Brill well-wishers looked on as Mollie arrived fashionably late.

Mollie looked stunning in her dress, Tim escorted his daughter down the aisle to a beaming Ollie and friends and family looking on. The knot was tied, and with a boom of cheering the celebrations continued in convoy down to the Tythe barn at Notley farm.  All the best you too and a big thank you for letting me be part of your big day.

Lucy + Dan A Marquee Wedding Video Buckinghamshire

5th August 2017 Lucy + Dan a marquee wedding video Buckinghamshire

“Dan & Lucy met 10 years ago when Lucy was riding for Mandy and teaching Cara. They started dating five years ago after a young farmers party. They dated for two years, with Dan moving to Exeter for work. When Dan came back he moved to London and after a year, Lucy moved in. They bought their house in Chiswick together 18 months ago.’’

The day started with heavy rain, but it didn’t dampen the wedding spirits as guests started arriving to celebrate Lucy & Dan’s big day. It was a pleasure working alongside All people Photography on this local wedding, who also photographed my wedding 14 years ago! As guest took their seats amongst stunning flowers arranged by Sharron Hewland , Lucy entered to an eagerly waiting Dan dressed in a gorgeous San Patrick, Madelaine dress from Xquisite Bridal. With a punch to the air Dan sealed the marriage with a kiss and with hand in hand left to cheers and confetti. With the family farm as the venue the skies cleared, and the day continued under blue skies with guests enjoying canapés and champagne. With the day drawing to a close for me, we ended with some fantastic sunset footage, sparklers and a romantic first dance. Wishing you both all the best for the future!

Selina + Thomas Hedsor House wedding film, Bucks

29th May 2017 Selina + Thomas Hedsor House wedding film, Bucks

It’s so beautiful to see people from two cultures and religion come together as one. Selina and Thomas had an Indian wedding video and capturing it was a fun and exciting experience, something I will always remember. It was great to work alongside my mate David Bostock and to see an Indian wedding in action and how their traditions vary from a normal Christian wedding.

The groom along with his family and friends (also known as the groom party) arrived in style at the Hedsor House and the bride’s family gave them a warm welcome. The wedding took place on 29 May 2017, so the weather was nice and warm, perfect for a wedding!

Selina wore a gold and deep red lehenga choli and she looked absolutely stunning! Her Indian style makeup with the henna on her hands and jewelry; everything was perfection.

The wedding ceremony went smoothly and then the bride changed into a wedding gown and the couple did the cutting of the cake followed by their first dance. This Hedsor House wedding film turned out amazing and Selina and Thomas look like two people who belong with each other!

AMANDA AND FRANÇOIS WEDDING FILM WEST WYCOMBE PARK, BUCKINGHAMSHIRE

6th May 2017 Amanda and François wedding film West Wycombe park

 May 6th, 2017 was a beautiful day for the wedding of Amanda and François. It started perfectly, from the cool breeze to the breathtaking views of the Chiltern hills and large trees that surround West Wycombe Park, Buckinghamshire.

The bridesmaids looked stunning in a beautifully designed purple dress. The bride, in a beautiful dress with a three-quarter length lace overlay that showed off her shoulders. The groom and groomsmen also looked elegant dressed in matching black tuxedos

As I captured the moment where Francois turned around to see Amanda for the first time in her wedding dress, I knew the love between this two was pure!

The bride walked into the church to sounds of trumpets walking in elegantly with her long veil floating behind her, Amanda and François said I do in the presence of family and friends, it was indeed a magical moment, even more so when they were showered with confetti as they left as man & wife.

The scenery was breathtaking, the well-decorated venue, the laughter, made each moment magical.

 

“……. I was captivated by her beauty, her intelligence, poise, and distinction. I will like to thank my beloved Amanda, my rock, the love of my life, for loving me just the way I am and for choosing to spend the rest of my life with me. I love you my darling.”

 

As François said these words, I could feel the love in his voice, and I was certain that the love between would last a life time.

Everyone was relaxed, sipping champagne surrounded by close friends as the music played on. The newlyweds took their first dance, everyone watched in awe.  It was an absolute pleasure to work alongside the extremely talented photographers who also captured beautiful moments.

 

Thank you, Amada and Francois for letting me capture and be a part of your amazing wedding day!

CLAIRE AND JACK’S WEDDING FILM NOTLEY TYTHE BARN, BUCKINGHAMSHIRE

15TH April 2017 Claire And Jack’s Wedding Film Notley Tythe Barn, Buckinghamshire

I was very privileged to film the wedding of Claire and Jack, The stunning union took place at Notley Tythe Barn, a traditional venue with a beautiful and historic building that provided the perfect backdrop for this perfect day.

The 15th of April 2017 was a sunny day and a special one for Claire and Jack, which had every beautiful moment captured by the expert photographer Andy Sidders.

The beautiful and ever-smiling bride was dressed in a gorgeous fitted gown, made with delicate bridal lace, with her hair elegantly done, revealing her neck and shoulders. The tall handsome groom wore a navy-tail Carisbrooke suit from Moss Bros. As Claire reached the altar on her father’s arm, Jack had an emotional moment, overwhelmed by the beauty of his bride a passionate moment to film.

The vows were said with so much emotion and passion and as Jack slipped the Goldsmiths ring onto Claire’s finger, time seemed to stop. At that very moment, the couple became man and wife, the applause that greeted the announcement boomed.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”

The wedding party was filled with delicious food and generous portions and Claire’s contagious laugh filled the air, thank you for letting me be a part of it. I have seen how happy you make each other, and I know your happiness will last for a long time.

Congratulations Claire and Jack!

CATHERINE ROSE + GAVIN STUART SEALEY WEDDING FILM PENDLEY MANOR

8th April 2017 Catherine Rose + Gavin Stuart Sealey wedding film Pendley Manor, Buckinghamshire

Catherine Rose & Gavin Stuart Sealey’s wedding was everything dreams are made of. Pendley Manor has beautiful scenery, from the trees, the flowers, to the stunning structures, provided the perfect atmosphere for a gorgeous wedding. 8th April 2017 was indeed a beautiful day.

The bride looked lovely in a white wedding gown by Confetti Bridal Wear, What better way to make the wedding colourful than the bridesmaid’s Phase Eight blue dress. They all looked beautiful at the entrance as they waited for the bride and created beautiful moments for me to capture.

The groom looked elegant in a blue tuxedo as he waited for his bride patiently, you could see the anxiousness in his eyes. As Catherine Rose walked in gracefully with her father by her side, the atmosphere was filled with love, tears, and joy.

As they said, “I do” and kissed for the first time as a couple, friends and family who came to witness the union cheered on. It was also a beautiful sight when loved ones showered the newlyweds with confetti as they walked out of ALL SAINTS’ church creating magical moments for me to film.

Catherine, you look stunning and you are even more beautiful on the inside. I am so happy that you are going to be my wife. I look forward to growing grey with you…”

As Gavin said these words to his wife, she looked at him with love.  The love between these two was evident as they held hands, laughed, kissed, and walked together.

Everyone watched as Catherine and Garvin dance for the first time as a couple under the light-filled hall. Thanks to the music of DJ Discos, the couple displayed their best dance steps yet. These two couldn’t get their hands off each other and I feel so grateful to capture these special moments for them.

Filming alongside the very talented Liz Greenhalgh was exhilarating; we both had lots of fun with this amazing couple. I can’t even put into plain words how amazing it was spending time with these two beautiful souls.

Cheers to the two lovebirds and their perfect wedding!

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.

Jamie + Jamie Kings Hotel wedding film

10th September Jamie Lee & Jamie – Filmed at Kings Hotel, Buckinghamshire

Jamie Lee and Jamie’s spectacular wedding was all about the details, lovingly thought out by the bride herself, who spent two years planning this special day. She had help from her gorgeous team of bridesmaids that included her sister, Paula, and she gave a particular toast to thank each of them individually during the reception. The day was, of course, all about the bride and groom- and I was privileged to share in their day at the King’s Hotel in Buckinghamshire. Jamie Lee’s father admitted to feeling immensely proud of his beautiful daughter, and thanked her for the honour of walking her down the aisle, exclaiming: “I will cherish this moment forever.”

Jamie Lee wore a strapless and sleek dress with an exquisite lace overlay and beaded belt. Her bridesmaids were regal in shades of mauve, coffee and grey. The bridal party arrived at the ceremony in a Rolls Royce, and didn’t let the slight drizzle dampen their spirits for a moment. Jamie, in his toast at the reception, described himself as a “blubbering mess” the moment he saw his wife-to-be begin her walk down the aisle, and said he couldn’t possibly have prepared himself for how she looked that day. With her side-swept blonde locks and beaming face, it was not hard to see why he shed a few tears!

Jamie thanked his wife for her fun-loving charm and her support of him, and he proclaimed his love for her “quirks” including her very specific criteria for the perfect cup of tea! To her husband, Jamie Lee declared “you are everything to me- everything” and she recalled the first moment she saw him and felt that she’d very much like him to be her boyfriend. Now married, she could admit to feeling rather smug!

The reception was made all the more beautiful by the little touches- from the cake pops on the tables, to the little blackboards emblazoned with love song lyrics, and the baby’s breath decorations. The wedding cake itself was a tower of cupcakes, reflecting the fun-loving characters of the bride and groom. It was a fantastic and memorable day, and I wish Jamie and Jamie Lee all the best for their future together!

Michelle + Max The Dairy wedding film Waddesdon

27th August 2016 Michelle & Max – Filmed at The Dairy, Waddesdon, Buckinghamshire

“I love how much we laugh together.”

The romantic setting of The Dairy at Waddesdon, in Buckinghamshire, was suitably magical for the union of this fun-loving pair. Max and Michelle’s wedding was such a pleasure to witness, as it was a true celebration of love and laughter- in spite of the rain! The couple met on an HR course, and the groom proclaimed that during their first date at Nando’s, “I knew we had a special connection!” Despite this somewhat unromantic start, the couple have clearly only had eyes for each other since that moment, and as they gazed adoringly at each other while wandering among the willow trees in this beautiful venue, their happiness was overwhelming and infectious.

Michelle wore a strapless, figure-hugging gown from Pure Couture with a sweetheart neckline and mermaid skirt. Her bridesmaids were stunning in burgundy, and there were touches of pink and lavender in the details throughout the day. During the ceremony, the guests were unperturbed by the persistent drizzle and simply popped open their umbrellas while the couple was mercifully sheltered under the awning of the Dairy roof. The rain seemed to hold off once they were pronounced husband and wife, and they were able to walk beaming down the aisle together.

A harpist entertained the guests in the beautiful grounds while the bridal party had their photographs taken, and then it was time for the reception. During his toast, Mike thanked his new wife for all her wonderful quirks and qualities, from her love of chocolate, to her singing in the shower and her obsession with the 2p machines at the arcade. He confessed to an early experience of Disney karaoke with his then-girlfriend, Michelle, and said he had felt “as if I was performing a duet in the Aladdin musical!” This, it seemed, set the tone for their relationship to come, and I can only wish them all the best as they begin an exciting new set of adventures together.
