Highlights from the marriage of Mr & Mrs Tomkins
“It’s fantastic!!! Love it!!!! Thank you guys so much” x (Gemma)
Why Mitton Hall?
The reason we chose Mitton Hall, we were basically blown away by the beautiful building and it’s surroundings. We thought it would be the perfect venue for a wedding our size. Also, all of the staff on every visit there made us feel so welcome, and I felt they were so thorough and organised in covering every aspect of the wedding we had in our minds. They had everything under control and this showed on the wedding day as the day couldn’t of gone any better for me.
What made you want a videographer?
The reason for wanting a videographer for us meant capturing the moments that as a bride and groom you don’t get to see. Everybody tells you before your wedding that the day will go so fast and you forget moments so quickly so we wanted to be able to re watch and re live the day again and again.
A another big reason for me is capturing moments of Oscar being him crazy self and all the kids being the age that they are, playing and dancing ect together, I didn’t want to forget things like that either.
Favourite parts from the BIG DAY?
For me it was the ceremony, definitely. I really loved saying my vows to James, and surprisingly I wasn’t as nervous as I thought I would be. And for James, he also says the ceremony and having all our friends and family celebrating together.
How did James propose?
James proposed basically at home, just me and him there. We both discussed marriage early on in our relationship (very grown up of us haha) so it was something we knew we both wanted. And it was the day after a friends wedding, so I think he got the wedding bug, or maybe people pestering him at the wedding saying “when are you two getting married then???”
Congratulations Gemma & James, thank you for inviting us to your very special day 🙂 Ro & Lisa x
So much sun for a wedding in February…
We love it!!!! Can’t thank you enough!!!
What made you choose Sandhole Oak Barn for your Wedding?
After having a look at (what feels like all) wedding venues online, I (Ashley) had arranged to see several we liked one weekend, I was back up North (as we were living in London at the time). The plan was to have a casual look – Adam wasn’t even there. Sandhole Oak was the first venue I visited and I called Adam to say we didn’t need to see any others.
Hi Roland just a quick thank you for the video you have just sent us of Ashley & Adams Wedding. In the words of my proud daughter who has just watched it. “ He has nailed it” you have absolutely captured all the emotion and love of the day!!
I just want to thank you to you and your wife for such an excellent job. I will be recommending you to everyone and our paths will meet again I am sure.
Thanks from one Proud Dad.
(Lee – A Very Proud Father of the Bride)
How did Adam propose?
I came home from work on a random Friday night to Adam, a French Bulldog puppy named Bruce and a ring.
What were your favourite memories from the Big Day?
Ashley – Getting ready with the girls – Seeing my dad for the first time before him walking me down the aisle – Seeing Adam for the first time
Adam – Morning beers – Watching Ashley walk down the aisle – Ant’s heckle during the best man speech
What experience did you want to give your guests?
A relaxed and fun day filled with happy memories.
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Pritchard, our first wedding of 2018 and what a way to kick off 🙂

Why Mitton Hall for your BIG DAY?
I fell in love with Mitton Hall as soon as we pulled up the driveway at one of their open nights. The sun was starting to go down, the lights had come on and the whole place looked magical. We just looked at each and said ‘WOW’. We both knew that was our venue.
What made you want a videographer for your wedding?
I always knew I wanted a wedding video. I watched my parents wedding video over and over again as a child and I knew what it meant to have that as a keepsake as well as pictures. Phil however, did not want a videographer at first as he didn’t see the point if we were having a photographer as well. That is until I showed him Roland’s many video’s and clips on YouTube, Facebook and his website. He laughed and cried and afterwards said ‘now I see the difference and I definitely think we should have a videographer!’
What were your favourite memories of the wedding?
Hayley- The whole process of finding and picking my wedding dress with my mum by side will stay with me forever. Also, I felt really nervous on the morning of our wedding and the moment the doors opened and I saw phil standing there waiting for me, everything disappeared. I will never forget that feeling of excitement and happiness.
Phil- When the love of my life Eleanor (Shelby Mustang GT500) pulled up outside my parents house to take me to the wedding venue. To say I was surprised is an understatement! Obviously, seeing my wife coming down the aisle was a memory I will hold forever. She looked absolutely stunning in her dress and all my nerves disappeared.
What kind of experience did you want to give your guests?
We wanted our wedding day to be relaxed and enjoyable and not too formal. We wanted a warm, christmassy feel during the day and a great party at night to start off the Christmas holidays. It was also important to us to make sure all the children had fun!
The Story of Katie & Chris x
“Everyone has loved the film 🙂 we’ve had so many messages from people saying they’ve cried at it!!
Thank you so much” 🙂
Why did you pick Stirk House for your wedding?
We were recommended Stirk House and as soon as we arrived on Christmas Eve to look around we fell in love. I (Katie) have a bit of an obsession with fairy lights so the tree at the front sealed the deal! Dave, Danielle and the team could have not been more amazing and truly made the day even better.
What made you decide to have a wedding video?
Because we didn’t want to miss anything! The day goes so quickly (cliche we know!) and we wanted to make sure that we could remember everyone and everything that made our day so special.
We also loved the interview idea that we had seen from your previous videos so we could look back on some precious memories from our family and friends.
What are some of your favourite memories from the whole wedding experience?
We loved the whole experience of getting married. We were really laid back in planning which made for a much smoother day as we weren’t stressing about anything going wrong!
Katie – “Peeking out of the window, hidden behind the curtain and seeing Chris arrive in his suit. It’s when it hit me that it was really happening!”
Chris – “Seeing Katie walk down the aisle towards me thinking how beautiful she looked and trying to hold it all together for the ceremony”
What did you want most of all from your your wedding day?
A huge party! We just wanted everyone to have fun and enjoy themselves. We have friends and family from all over the place, a lot of whom have never met, so to get everyone together to celebrate was important.
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Smith, thanks for inviting us, Ro & Lisa x
“It’s flawless, loved re living the day some of your best material
yet, wouldn’t change anything your sir have done us proud thank you”
Why did you choose The Shireburne Arms & St Peters Church?
We picked the Shireburn because we loved the laid back vibe of it, the location within the ribble valley with the views & we thought it suited our theme of a rustic winter wonderland perfectly. We also fell in love with Sarah & the staff at the Shireburn who were super helpful & made the whole process really easy. The food is also amazing there too.
St. Peter’s was the closest Catholic Church to the Shireburn & was the most beautiful church we had seen. The drive up to Stonyhurst is so beautiful and Matt had worked their at the beginning of his career too & he had loved it so we thought it would be perfect. We thought the pictures would be lovely too.
What made you want to have a wedding video?
We definitely wanted a wedding video to capture every moment of the day. It goes so fast & there’s so much going on that we didn’t want to miss a second. We also wanted to be able to look back on it & watch the day over & over again.
Do you have a favourite memory form the whole wedding experience?
The whole day was just amazing. Favourite memories are walking into the church & seeing everyone & seeing Matts face. The speeches which were fab. Just having everyone around us there to celebrate with us. We loved every second of it. Seeing the room for me was also a highlight because it was perfect, exactly how I imagined it would look & more. It was the perfect setting for the perfect day.
What kind of day did you want to give your guests?
We wanted guests to feel comfortable, relaxed & chilled. We didn’t want anyone to feel like they were on their best behavior. We just wanted it to be really relaxed & for everyone to have the best time with lots of food, drink & dancing 🕺
1 word for this wedding…..Lovely!
“OH WOW Roland! We absolutely love it!!! A few more happy tears again following that!
(Jimmy & Anna)
Why did you choose Mitton Hall
We looked at many wedding venues around the area but came back to Mitton Hall due the wonderful setting and decor which assured us that it could be enjoyed by everyone either indoors or outdoors irrespective of the unpredictable weather. We primarily wanted a cosy autumn/winter feel to the day and Mitton provides that with it’s gorgeous log fires and comfortable atmosphere.
What made you want to have a wedding video?
Family and friends advised us to take 10 minutes out of the day every now and again to take it all in as the “day goes so fast.”. Whilst we tried to ensure we did this, the day did still seem to go extremely fast for us. Knowing that we had a wedding video to capture the many magical moments that we undoubtedly missed put us both at ease.
What were your favourite memories of THE BIG DAY?
Walking down the aisle, seeing my gorgeous husband to be. Looking round and seeing my stunning bride approaching down the aisle. Seeing everyone that we love and care about together in the same room enjoying themselves.
Getting my speech over and done with (haha).
What experience did you want your guests to have?
A relaxed, warm, fun and friendly day where the guests could enjoy each others company and have a great time helping us celebrate our amazing day.
Absolutely incredible work! Every magical moment captured and presented in the most amazing way possible. We will be recommending you to anyone and everyone. You’re brilliant and such lovely people to be around. It was a pleasure having you there on our big day! Thank you Roland and Lisa! We will cherish our video forever and have already watched it numerous times! (Cried happy tears every time!) I just can’t put in to words how brilliant a job you have both done. Thank you. Anna and Jimmy. Xxx
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Mcmahon, thanks for having us x
