  • 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.

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.

A Rivington Barn Wedding

When I look back at this years work its great to remember some of the highlights we have witnessed. When I saw Suzanne’s dad tear up when he opened the card she gave him, I must admit to feeling a little emotional as well. I think I will remember that moment for quite a while. Its such a proud moment for a father to walk his daughter down the aisle and I guess reading her heartfelt words makes it hard to keep composed. Of coarse there were many other moments at this wedding that made it so special and memorable for us, but check out the highlights and see for yourself. This Rivington Barn Wedding was such a lovely wedding and being back here was a pleasure, its a great venue in a lovely setting.

A Beautiful Summer Wedding

It was real nice to be working alongside Mick Cookson on the day, he has a nice relaxed style and is a seasoned pro, its fair to say we both made the most of the gorgeous surroundings. After the emotional start to the day things moved on at a whirlwind pace and the guys enjoyed a drink in the local pub before heading off to the church. Daniel was noticeably nervous but remained composed while the guests moved inside. Shortly after Suzanne arrived and made her entrance after the bridesmaids. It was a pretty traditional wedding with the inclusion of a lovely poem read out by one of the bridesmaids, such nice words I couldn’t help but include it in this highlight.

Arrive at Rivington Barn

The weather was perfect all day and with the odd cloud in the sky we enjoyed a beautiful summer wedding reception. One of the things I love about a Rivington Barn wedding is the outside spaces. Just a sort walk to the lake and the Barn borders on woodland so its a great spot for some secluded photography if thats your style. The interior is huge and broken up with saxon beams that support the structure, it has a distinct woodland feel and is quite unlike any other venue we have filmed at before.

The Evolution of Wedding Films

I think over the past few years wedding films have evolved into something representing real cinema, there has been a shift in both technique and technology and this has allowed filmmakers to perfect their craft and bring story telling to a whole new level. Cedar House Productions have embraced this and its our combined skills and experience of over 10 years making wedding films that allow us to tell the story in an artistic and timeless way. If you are considering having a wedding film, hit the contact button and talk to us. We would love to tell your story.
