Jo + Elliott Hedingham Castle wedding video your very own Norman castle one of the best romantic locations I have ever had the pleasure in filming, Hedingham Castle is privately owned and slowly and lovingly being restored to it’s former glory. Built in 1140 that’s over 877years ago and still remains in the family, I can see why Jo + Elliott decided to get married here it is simply stunning!

The English weather a mix of rain and sun during the day didn’t dampen the wedding cheer, and as the preparations finished it was soon time for Elliott to take his place in the castle and await his future bride. Jo arrived in a stunning bespoke wedding dress by Karen Millen and sporting a great pair of shoes also by Karen! Elliot looked on as Jo walked down the isle in his magnificent setting, a truly stunning wedding service unfolded and was sealed with a kiss and cheer from the guests.

The Georgian house hosted the cheer as guests enjoyed champagne and canapés, whilst myself and the amazing photographer Voyteck captured some magical photos and footage from around the venue. The day finished for me capturing Jo & Elliott’s first dance, as I said my goodbyes the night looked like it being. Here’s to you Jo & Elliot a wonderful wedding, and all the best for the future!

LUCY + OSMAN ROYAL AUTOMOBILE ASSOCIATION WEDDING FILM, SURREY

9th September 2017 Lucy + Osman Royal automobile association wedding film, Surrey

You know when you reach that certain age in life when you’re ready to settle down? That was how Lucy and Osman felt about their lives, which makes them perfect for each other. They both were well aware of what they want and the decision to tie the knot was like a cherry on top.

The wedding took place at The Royal Automobile Club on 9th September 2017 which was a beautiful destination to hold such a precious event.

Lucy looked like a real-life princess in a breathtaking white wedding dress by Love Bridal. Her dress had to be accompanied by equally stunning accessories and that is exactly what Rainbow Club delivered in terms of shoes. As for the ring and jewelry, those were from Rapheal. Suzanne Smith, the makeup artist kept it simple and brought our Lucy’s natural beauty. Beautiful curls framed the bride’s face, all thanks to Joanna Maguire from Bella and Bride.

The wedding preps started the day after Osman proposed and the outcome of Lucy’s planning and preparing was truly remarkable. From the venue to flower décor by Mad Lilies, everything was just perfect. Other décor included sophisticated chair covers by Host With Style and a pleasantly appealing Marquee by Carron Marquees. And how can we forget about the Magic Mirror from Shutterbox Photobooths; that was a fun addition to the wedding décor!

Lucy and Osman were joined by their friends and family members on their special day and everyone at the celebration had a story to tell about the bride and groom. A special and heartwarming toast was given by Lucy’s sister, who was also the Maid of Honour. The lilac dresses worn by the Maid of Honour and Bridesmaid were courtesy of Nabbd.

During the reception, the couple shared their first dance with the music played by Black and Gold/ String Trio; they surely know how to keep the audience engaged with their songs. Each moment from walking down the aisle to the couple’s first dance was captured by Gemma Chase Photography.

At the end of the day, Lucy and Osman looked happy and excited to start the next chapter of their lives together. I wish them the best of luck!

SOPHIE AND JAMES A MARQUEE WEDDING FILM, KENT

1st July 2017 Sophie And James A Marquee Wedding Film, Kent

The wedding of Sophie and James took place on the first of July, 2017 at St.  Margaret’s and the Old Barn grounds, it was indeed a lovely occasion. With so many weddings happening in so many styles, I was really glad Sophie and James chose a country wedding. For me, country weddings are usually relaxing and homely, providing unique moments to be captured. I especially loved the horse-drawn carriage ride.

Friends and family gathered that beautiful summer day to celebrate love and friendship with Sophie and James. Everyone radiated happiness and joy as they chatted. The bridesmaids’ carriage arrived first; they wore beautiful navy-blue dresses from Hayley Elizabeth Bridal boutique. Sophie alighted from her carriage in her dad’s arm looking like a fairy princess in a white ball gown, an exceptional piece from Victoria’s Bridal Boutique. Her makeup was perfectly done by expert hands from Gemma-Mac cosmetics.

Taking in the decor done nicely in cream and green colours, Sophie marched into the Church in her father’s arm, dazzling everyone with her contagious smile. Dressed in a black suit from Mia Sposa, with a cream-colored tie and a black shoe from Freya Rose, James waited patiently as his bride approached the altar. Repeating their vow in unison, they sounded like one soul in two bodies. Only love could create such effect.

The wedding reception was another colorful affair, especially the cake by Emma Page cakes was looked absolutely scrumptious. Cutting the cake together, the new couple performed the task with ease, without the usual jitters faced by newly-weds. The wedding reception was a colorful and every moment was captured by Barrie Downie a pleasure to work alongside.

One thing I can say is, Sophie and James are very happy together and are very comfortable with each other, an important basis for undying love. I am indeed grateful to have witnessed the memorable and intimate moments of Sophie and James. Forever is such a brief time for a love like yours. Congratulations!

LARA AND DANIEL JEWISH WEDDING VIDEO HATFIELD HOUSE, HERTFORDSHIRE

 28th May 2017 Lara and Daniel Jewish wedding video Hatfield House

It’s crazy how in the most unusual circumstances you can end up meeting the right person. It’s all about being at the right place at the right time when it comes to love. This is exactly what happened with Lara and Daniel; they met in the most random situation and from there onwards they both had secretly known that they would end up with each other.
For this Jewish wedding video Lara and Daniel tied the knot on 28 May 2017 at the Old Palace of Hatfield House and it was a beautiful Jewish wedding film. The theme of the wedding was white and blue and I absolutely loved the décor! Lara wore a stunning white gown with a veil and her hair tied into an elegant up-do. Everyone from the bridesmaids of the flower girls were wearing something blue and it was great to see everyone in synch with the theme.
Friends and family members of both the bride and groom were excited and happy for the couple and everyone joined in the fun. After the wedding ceremony, both Lara and Daniel had fun on the dance floor while everyone cheered and later joined as well. It was a pleasure to see everyone having such a good time. The dancing after the reception was probably everyone’s favorite part, which I totally understand why.
This Hatfield House wedding video turned out amazing and the love between the bride and groom was quite evident. I wish them a happy married life ahead!

Annabelle + Mike Leez Priory wedding film

6th August 2016 Annabelle & Mike – Filmed at Leez Priory, Essex

“I realized you were Mike’s princess today.”

For a father, the day of his daughter’s wedding can be a bittersweet one. Annabelle’s father was no exception, but he acknowledged graciously during his toast that his daughter was undoubtedly happy with the lovely Mike, and so as a father he couldn’t really ask for more. Annabelle and Mike’s wedding in the jaw-dropping splendor of Leez Priory in Essex was a magical day for a couple truly meant for each other. Mike described his new wife as “the lady of the day, and the lady of my life” and his bride was indeed both, in her gorgeous full-skirted gown with delicate lace sleeves and laced bodice. She wore a sleek veil that was pinned into her chic chignon up-do, and later transformed her look by removing the lace sleeves to free herself up for more elaborate dance moves!

Annabelle’s bridesmaids made a pretty picture in lavender gowns with lace bodices, carrying baby blue and lavender bouquets. It was a glorious sunny day, ideal for an outdoor ceremony- and as Annabelle walked towards her husband-to-be, with the turrets of Leez Priory behind her, she looked every inch the princess she was. Mike had to wipe away a tear as she approached him, and after they were pronounced husband and wife a little while later, he gave her a long-awaited kiss and triumphantly waved at the gathered guests, in happy disbelief at finding such a perfect partner. A string and keyboard musical interlude entertained the guests while Mike and Annabelle signed the register, and then before long they emerged as husband and wife, whooping and pumping the air before walking back down the aisle.

The grounds of Leez Priory made for a stunning sunset location, and the guests sprawled on the grass to enjoy the final moments of the afternoon, before the couple carried out their first dance on the lawn. They entertained their guests with a funky routine, which Mike in particular threw himself into with enthusiasm! At the reception, the tables each features Polaroid snaps of the couple in the various placed they have visited across the world, from Sugar Loaf Mountain, to St. Lucia and the Golden Gate Bridge. In his toast to his new wife, Mike expressed the hope that there’d be “plenty of running, plenty of travelling and plenty of karaoke” in their future, and with those key ingredients they are sure to have many happy adventures together!

Kate and Chris Channels wedding video Blog

On the 5th of September, 2015 Kate & Chris finally said “I do” at Channels of Essex, an upscale 15th-century hotel. A Channels wedding video Essex is absolutely exquisite, but on this day it was so much more! Not because of just any wedding, but the wedding of Kate and Chris who shared their true love with everyone around them. The bridal party spent the morning together in jokes and laughter as Kate was pampered in the bridal suite by stylists with her bridesmaids Kirsty, Lisa, Nicola and Sarah. The look on her father’s face said it all when she finally revealed her bridal look just before he walked her down the eye — pure joy for this beautiful bride dressed in white. Once Chris saw his blushing bride, he spent the day knowing (and letting Kate know) that he “truly is the luckiest guy alive” because she said, “I do.” Their love was full-on in the air, and all the joy that surrounded the two of them was totally infectious on this very special day. After Kate and Chris had promised to love and cherish one another in the presence of God, friends and family, the two were celebrated by their lovely guests under a sea of rose petals floating in the wind. The flowers truly made for one epic send off! The reception got under way with live music, and photography on the lawn by Joanna Pearce. Kate and Chris spent one romantic evening surrounded by friends, family and loved ones dancing the night away. Thank you so very much to Kate and Chris! May the rest of your days together be just as special as this day, and full of all the laughter and love you bring to those around you!
