Selina & Brett Taplow House Wedding video, 8th of February 2014

I’ve yet to meet a couple who didn’t have an eagle eye on the weather on their wedding day, and as a film maker I always have a contingency plan when making a wedding video Berkshire. We thought we were in for a rare winter treat when Selina and Brett’s wedding day dawned with bright sunshine and blue skies, however even though these were soon covered with rain clouds it didn’t dampen their happiness.

The Georgian setting of Taplow House is a beautiful location for a traditional wedding. Selina showed more excitement than nerves as she got ready with her bridesmaids in the Hampton Room. She was a picture-perfect princess bride from her glittering tiara to the crystal encrusted hem on her stunning dress, with the sparkles on her long veil catching the light as she was taken through the village to the church in a white horse drawn carriage. The happiness of the congregation was clear as they showered the newlyweds with rose petal confetti as they made their way out of the church after the ceremony.

Thankfully the sun broke through again and we were able to film parts of our Taplow House wedding video outdoors before guests made their way inside for food and speeches. The wind did its best to steal Selina’s veil, but the photographer used this to great advantage and got some fantastic shots. A roving magician kept even the most cynical guests amazed with his tricks while the rest chatted and mingled. Selina and Brett had given each table the name of a sunny place which was a nice touch on and English winter’s day, and it wasn’t long before everyone was warming up on the cellar dance floor of Woofy’s Bar.

Particular highlights of this wedding were Brett’s moving speech about the beauty of his bride, the sensational asymmetric tiered wedding cake, and the seeming determination of the sun to fight its way through the cloud to shine on Brett and Selina’s special day.
