  • 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 Beautiful Wedding in Bury

Many of you lovely readers will have heard me wax lyrical numerous times about how we love what we do. Samantha and Marks church wedding in Bury typifies what I’m taking about. Their day was just so incredible and full of emotion. Its fair to say we had so much going on and the whole day kept our crew on their toes. The day started nice and early at Samantha and Marks home where we shot the getting ready bits. It was great to see Mark had sent Sam some flowers with a very moving message, and it tugged on the heart strings when Sam read it. That contrasted with Marks ‘getting ready’ where he literally was moved to tears when he read Sams note to him, it was such a great moment. I think sometimes its easy to become engrossed in capturing moments like these. Often its the small things that really display the love between two people or the closeness of a family. It was great to witness this first hand and clearly Sam & Mark have a very tight bond with their friends and family.

On to the Church for the Wedding Ceremony

The couple were married at Christ Church in Bury. Christ Church is a fine example of the Victorian Gothic Revival style. The church houses a number of very fine stained glass windows produced by the celebrated William Pape of Leeds. The support of English Heritage and a great deal of work by members of the congregation have allowed restoration work in recent years and it looks beautiful. It was nice to Tsee that Sam & Mark had booked a gospel choir to sing as she walked down the aisle which was so cool. They also performed throughout the day as the wedding guests enjoyed the reception.

Wedding reception and speeches

After the wedding in Bury the reception was held in a beautiful marquee in the families garden. It was a very relaxed affair and the nice weather allowed the guests to mingle outside while photographs were taken. The reception room looked incredible with the top table decorated with an abundance of flowers and candles. All in all a great setting for the evening ahead. After the speeches the room was extended to reveal the dance floor and the entertainment followed the first dance. What a great way to finish off.

Irton Hall Wedding

Just a great place to shoot a wedding and its no wonder they refer to it as the Lake Districts hidden jewel, Irton Hall wedding venue is truly a beautiful place. I dont know what it is about the Lake District, it almost feels like your in a different world. Its great to get away from all the hustle and bustle of daily life and its such a calming place. Irton Hall has a history stretching back to the 14th century, situated in the foothills of Lakeland’s western fells between Wasdale and Eskdale it is more like a stately home than a hotel. What a great find!!

Ok, let me tell you more about the day, we arrived nice and early and started shooting the prep. Both the bride and groom were staying at Irton Hall overnight and Matt and the grooms party traveled to the Church in a VW camper (how cool is that). It was a really chilled morning, lots of laughter and a little emotion but a great start to the wedding. We headed over to St Catherine’s Church, Boot in Holmrook.

The church ceremony

I guess one of the challenges of shooting weddings in remote locations is the access. St Catherine’s is a bit of the beaten track, but what a lovely church. As the guests made their way into the church, Angie and her dad arrived in a beautiful horse and carriage. The service was lovely, St Catherine’s is quite a small church so it had a very cosy feel to it. After the service we headed over to the reception and enjoyed some great entertainment. During the wedding breakfast Howard Wing performed in his own inimitable style. Howard has a talent for getting everyone in the mood and after the bridal party entered the room, Howard then wandered around singing and involving all the guests. Howard not only has a great voice, he is such a good entertainer and towards the end of the wedding breakfast the party was really getting started.

The day flew by and the guests enjoyed a short break just before the evening celebrations started and everyone gathered for the first dance, without any encouragement the dance floor was packed in no time and it was time for us to head home. What a great day and another fabulous wedding.
