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 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.
