  • Welcome to my world!

    Firstly, thanks for visiting our website and I hope you enjoy browsing through some of the weddings we have covered. I consider myself very fortunate to have such a great job! Filming a couple's wedding day is one of the most rewarding things one can do, and we don't take it lightly. Having traveled the length of the country I can honestly say we have been lucky enough to work in some of the most beautiful locations, but that's not the best part of what we do.

    We are based in Manchester but travel extensively and the majority of our work is around London and home counties. We also offer filming throughout Europe and worldwide, so wherever your wedding takes please we can film it!! We are a small team who are passionate about our work and look forward to the challenge of new and more exciting weddings.

    It's fair to say that over the years we have been lucky enough to work with some incredible couples, with their own unique stories. Most have been on an emotional journey and experiencing the joy of their wedding day with them is an incredibly enriching experience. We work hard to convey the feelings and emotions that were present on that special day through to the finished wedding film. We don't just want to document the day but produce something that will be timeless and continue to provide years of enjoyment by allowing couples to re-live one of the best days of their life.

Knowsley Hall Wedding

What a great Knowsley Hall wedding, I really love this venue and have only filmed here a handful of times. It reminds me a little of A stately home just outside London where we shoot quite often and yet its literally on our doorstep. Heading over their the heavens opened and I knew it was going to be mostly indoors but with a venue like this it really doesnt matter, in fact most of the wow factor is inside. Its quite spectacular, and the detail is incredible. There is a beautiful ornate ballroom with lavishly decorated ceiling, or large state dining room with master pieces hung on all the walls. There really is no shortage of eye candy to shoot!

The Planning

I have to say Jodie and Dan had really planned their Knowsley hall wedding day with military precision. I had kept in touch with Jodie periodically in the build up to the wedding and I knew it was going to be something special. The guys all got ready at Haydock Park hotel just a short drive from Knowsley Hall and my second shooter stayed with them whilst I filmed the brides party getting ready. It was quite a relaxed atmosphere at the venue but emotions stirred as the time drew closer. Its such a humbling experience being present and observing like this and I never tire of capturing these moments. You just never know whats going to happen next, whether there will be tears or just quiet composior.

The Celebrations

After the beautiful ceremony there was a drinks reception and the guests enjoyed some music from the string quartet with entertainment from a rather skilled magician. As everyone headed into the dining room for the wedding breakfast Jodie and Dan were greeted with a rapturous applause as they took their seats. The sun set and the speeches started in a dimly lit dining room. I must say I really like the mood and ambiance of the dining room when the lights go down, it gives the video much more depth and by this time everyone had relaxed and were having a great time. The evening celebrations started and after the first dance everyone hit the dance floor and the party really did get going. I love it when there is a full dance floor!!

A Jew-ish Wedding

Had a wonderful day at Carlton towers filming Alex & Davids Jew-ish wedding this summer. It may seem a bit of a strange title but all will be reveled when you check out the highlight. Thanks to some great speeches I didn’t really need to think too hard to title this post.

Carlton Towers

Carlton Towers is a beautiful stately home on a huge country estate. The owners have devoted nearly 30 years to maintaining and restoring the house and its parkland, and it is a credit to their hard work and commitment. It was our first time shooting there and although we had previously done some research it just doesn’t beat seeing it in all its splendor. You could literally spend all day wandering around shooting all the little details and some of the wide open spaces. I also love the lighting in there and the large windows let light stream in during the day adding a warmth to the interior.

A Cultural mix

It was really great that Alex and David had embraced both their cultures and decided to include elements of both. They chose not to have a Chuppah but had a beautiful arrangement which formed an arch at the end of the aisle. They also smashed the glass at the end of the ceremony which is always a fab moment and this coupled with the Israeli dancing made for such an energetic party. Thoroughly enjoyed working with Storm function band again and listening to the fab entertainment they provided.

Setting the scene

I really loved the build up in this wedding highlight, its such a mix of excitement and anticipation. Set against a beautiful back drop and with a very cool couple it represents what I feel to be some of our best work. We are constantly trying to come up with new ways to tell the story and break with convention a little. I think a good wedding film is always a mix of documentary style content mixed with movie style shooting.

Leez Priory Wedding

This Leez Priory Wedding was so special. Not least that it was such a beautiful day and in such a great location. Leez Priory’s magnificent Tudor mansion is quite simply outstanding. Set in 40 acres of parkland, with lakes, lawns and a sweeping driveway, this place has it all. I was so happy that Emma & Tony had decided to have the wedding ceremony outside. It was a scorching day and seeing all the guests in their summery outfits was a nice contrast to some of the winter weddings we have shot.

Don’t Cry

I think its fair to say that moments of high emotion affect people differently and its quite common to see the Bride or Groom tear up during the ceremony. Its slightly less common to see one of them burst into fits of laughter but never the less its does happen. The strange thing is that its usually couples that think they will be in tears on their wedding day. Then when the moment comes and someone whispers “don’t cry” just before the vows, anything can happen. I have to confess to joining in with the laughter it was a great moment and totally unexpected.

On with the Wedding Celebrations

There was such a lot going on at Emma & Tony’s wedding and it was clear to see they had taken great care to plan the day meticulously. From the outdoor ceremony to the fireworks in the evening. I was really impressed that Emma had decided to throw her bouquet away. Well not literally, but certainly a bouquet toss which is always great fun. It never ceases to amaze me how competitive the ladies can be when rugby tackling each other for the flowers!!

The end of a long day

After filming all day in the heat we headed back to Manchester with some great memories of this lovely wedding and still buzzing from the footage we captured. I hope we venture to Leez Priory again in the future, we thoroughly enjoyed working here and also hearing Emma & Tony’s own love story.
