Wedding Blog: June 2017

Hello all 🙂

We have started a new style of blog for our summer season, you can find the first episode below which features lots of our favorite venues and suppliers.

June was a mad month for us and July is going to be even more packed, this is the busiest month of any year we have ever had.
Eaves Hall invited us along to their Botanical Wedding Fayre recently, here is a short highlights video we produced for them.

We filmed our last WedCarKaraoke in May and managed to persuade 3 of our former Brides to join us for a sing along and to chat about their weddings.

Thanks for reading, Ro & Lisa x

Inn at Whitewell Weddings: Rebecca & Tom

Rebecca & Tom’s wedding ceremony has to be one of the best services we have filmed in a long time. Largely thanks to the Priest at All Saints Church in Hesketh Bank, an extremely welcoming man who was an absolute pleasure to work with. Ward (Father of the Bride) personally thanked him in front of the guests just before the happy couple walked down the aisle together.

The day started with ‘That Fine Rain’ as me and Lisa started filming the Bridal Prep’s at Rebecca’s parents home which was just round the corner from the church. Jason from Flower Design spent time with the bridesmaids explaining how to hold the bouquets correctly, I think it has something to do with fertility from what he was saying, it went way over my head but sounded very interesting to the girls. Ward showed us the tandem he had made as a gift to his daughter and future son in law which I quickly had to run out and film before he cycled it to the church. Thanks to the extremely talented Lottie Designs for the photograph 🙂

Tom broke the ice as you will have seen in the clip with a very eager ‘I Will’. As soon as he said it I knew I had the start of their film!

The Inn at Whitewell hosted the reception, with Howard Wing entertaining guests throughout the wedding breakfast and into the evening reception which ended for us with the new Mr & Mrs Harrison being drowned by confetti on the  dance floor.

A fabulous wedding, never dampened by the drizzle. Congratulations to you both, Ro & Lisa x

Emily & Aaron: Weddings at The Windmill, Whiteley Green

A country pub location, a beautiful Bride and handsome Groom, lawn games, loud guests and Pugs, this is what a summer wedding is all about!

We arrived early at Norcliffe Chapel in Styal on a very hot Saturday in June ready for the marriage of Emily & Aaron. The Groom and guests enjoyed drinks before the ceremony at The Ship.

The Church setting was perfect as Emily arrived with her Bridesmaids and we enjoyed a very relaxed and humorous ceremony thanks to a great vicar and readings from the bridal party.

After a short drive from the church we arrived at The Windmill Pub which proved to be the perfect reception venue with a real rustic and country charm complete with its own little maze which Chris Morse used for the group shot. The lawn games were very entertaining in the blazing sun, every few minutes you either heard screams from the Jenga Tower falling or shouts of victory as  the hoop competition heated up.

Blank Cheque provided the evening entertainment and as the sun started to fall we managed to capture the Throwing of the Bouquet which perfectly ended this amazing day that we both thoroughly enjoyed being a part of

Congratulations Mr & Mr Wood x

Mitton Hall Weddings: Sophie & Luke

Sophie & Luke were so lucky with the weather on their special day in May, brilliant sunshine all morning for the ceremony in Darwen and just as we had thrown the confetti, the thunder cracked, the heavens opened and we had a down pour of hail and rain up until we arrived at Mitton Hall, perfect timing for the sun to show it’s face again for the rest of the day.

Joining us on ‘Image Capturing Duty’ was David Stubbs whilst Sam Fitton entertained the guests during the early drinks reception. Red Floral Architecture, Creative Cover Hire & Pink Frosting added their special touches to the stunning decor, the room looked absolutely beautiful for the Bride & Groom.

One of our favourite scenes (amongst many) was Nana on the dancefloor once DFC invited everyone to join Mr & Mrs Heath after the first dance (she’s in her 90’s and dancing to rap music).

We managed to send this teaser over to the happy couple on their honeymoon so they could enjoy it in the sun, here is their first response…

Hi Roland,
Oh wow! What a fabulous surprise, we absolutely love it thanks so so much!
And thanks once again for everything on the day 🙂
Thank you to Sophie, Luke, all their friends and family for having us and making us feel so welcome on the day, congratulations from Ro & Lisa x

Yorkshire Wedding Barn: Anjulee & Simon

The Yorkshire Wedding Barn was our destination for Anj & Simon’s BIG DAY, a stunning marriage venue situated in the country town of Richmond. We had a very early start to capture all the fun during the Bridal preparations. What an amazing group of Bridesmaids we had to film, singing their hearts out in the kitchen as the Bride was getting ready upstairs with the hair and make-up artists. The Groom was pretty calm in the morning, he was having fun with Smiler (Bestman) and the Ushers whilst Red Floral Architecture and My Something Borrowed gave the ceremony room a rustic transformation. It was great to work alongside Jemima Stubbs Photography who we had such a laugh with during the day and evening, thank you to all the staff at the barn and Ray Wade Catering for taking care of us.

Mr & Mrs Greenbank threw one hell of an amazing day but the icing on the cake (no pun intended) was the evening reception, it started off with a MAD DANCE by the newlyweds and then suddenly out of no where the Punjab Bhangra Crew  jumped on the dance floor and the party went through the roof!
Such a great wedding to film, having a couple who smiled non stop really made our job very easy, these Yorkie’s really made us Lanc’s feel very welcome, congratulations to you both 🙂

Great Hall at Maines Wedding Videography: Sam & Karl

The Bridesmaids set the tone as we started filming at The Great Hall for Mr & Mrs Ashcroft’s BIG DAY, it was so funny to watch them practice their walk down the aisle whilst Make-Up Artist Sonara Parker worked her magic in the kitchen. The Groom arrived with his 2 best men looking very sharp and ready for an awesome day with family and friends.

The Great Hall looked stunning with help of Creative Cover Hire which made it very easy for us and their wedding photographer Bobtale Photography to capture such gorgeous images. (lovely working with you Robyn)

This is an example from our Cinematic Short package which has become very popular this year for couples who want a more stylized film which they can share online

We feel so lucky to be part of so many wonderful days such as Sam & Karl’s wedding, capturing their day and telling the story of how they spent an amazing day with all the people they love is an honor.  The first dance just exploded once those confetti cannons fired and as we left the evening reception we knew this was going to open their wedding video.

Thanks for inviting us Mr & Mrs Ashcroft x
