Happy New Lockdown!

Happy New Year!

You have to feel sorry for 2020, it was that promising year which was totally screwed over and dismissed by most of the world, the abandoned child of our Gregorian calendar.
Our 2020 was quiet but not one we want to forget and not just for the bad things…

Christmas was probably the quietest we have ever experienced…

With no end in sight at the moment, our wedding work is a little unclear for the short term. Enquiries are still very strong but we, just like everyone in our industry are starting to feel that weddings may not happen until later this year. Nervous couples are now wanting to change their dates WAAAYYY out of reach from the Pandemic this time, one recently asked for 2024!
Being self-employed, we have had to adjust and rethink our strategy for 2020/21. We’ve managed to keep relatively busy since June last year whilst working with our wedding clients to rearrange their celebrations, some we lost on the way unfortunately and we will probably lose a few more in the next 6 months but we are still keeping positive.

2020 (as cheesy as this sounds) was a massive year of reflection, we found out what was important to us as a family and business, we learned to slow down, not worry too much and most importantly, enjoy our time together. We were a wedding client once, we’ve been through the 7-year itch and like most, we’ve been locked inside with each other for nearly 12 months,
we’ll be OK πŸ™‚

If any of our Brides & Grooms need any assistance during these weird and silly times, please don’t be afraid to reach out. We are really looking forward to a time when we can share the Happy Days with our clients but for now, thanks for reading

After and hour of getting to know each other, comparing dog photos they decided to invite us a long to their amazing wedding at Bashall Barn.
Oh we had sooooo much fun with The Gorrells & Nelsons, they do like to party and we absolutely loved the movie inspired deco.

September started with a STUNNING WEDDING at Iscoyd Park

“Wowza!!! Thank you so much Roland and Lisa. Captures our day so well and the drone footage especially is unbelievable. The day went by in a flash and it was hard to take it all in – already there are bits we’ve spotted on the trailer that we’d totally forgotten about.Β 
Can’t wait to share it with our friends and family!!”

So let’s go back to 2015 when we first met the Ward family at Fiona & Nicks Wedding . We not only filmed and edited their wedding but also re-edited Fi’s parents wedding (worth a watch in the link at they are both at the same venue). A few years later Fiona’s brother Chris and his fiance Catherine contacted us to film their BIG DAY.

So we made our way down to their family home in Cheshire before continuing onto Iscoyd for an amazing day in the September Sun.
Mr & Mrs Ward assembled a great WedTeam including Photography34 ,  Pronovias Brides of Chester Stella York Stuart Weitzman Boodles Margaret Mason Florist Lizzie – Hair & Make-up Artist Makeup by Tammy Faye Jonny Ross Music Whitehouse Event Crockery

MVP had to be awarded to our Bride who delivered one of the funniest speeches we have heard, congratulations to you both and hopefully we’ll see you again in the future. Thank you for inviting us to your PERFECT DAY X

A beautiful sunny day at one of our favourite wedding venues

Our final wedding of summer was full of light and colour after a very grey August. Nic & Jo celebrated their BIG DAY at Eaves Hall with all their friends and family and what a great way to see off the summer season. Shooting alongside Lottie Designs we had so much fun with the guys at DFC who hosted the day.

Some of our personal highlights included the 6 (yes count them) 6 ushers who made a joint speech and gave Jo a royal roasting, the acoustic session from Danny and enjoying the sun in the beautiful gardens at Eaves.

WHAT A WEDDING!!!

Some weddings you can just have a little too much fun at and this was definitely one of them. Vicky & Mason tied the knot on a (rare) sunny day in August. Both the Bride & Groom were ready for an amazing day as soon as we started filming.

Mr & Mrs C put a quality WEDDING TEAM together at Wyresdale Park including Foxley Photography, Mr Paul Guard, Bluebells & Daisies, Karen Rhodes Events, Bon Vivant, Sugar Wishes Cakes any many others who were all on top form, Vicky was kind enough to message us the following day once she received her Instagram Sneak Peek (below)

” Roland and Lisa, we just wanted to take the time out of currently living on cloud nine to say thank you so much for taking the time to capture our day on Saturday. We truly truly had the most unreal day ever which exceeded all expectations. We have both said since that a huge part of that was down to the amazing team we had working around us. We honestly cannot thank you enough for making our day so relaxed, making us feel so at ease, have so much fun and party so hard!!! We honestly and truthfully have loved meeting you both and would recommend you a million times over. That sneak peak that we received SO SOON has captured the utter blast we had in 30 seconds which is amazing and we cannot wait to see the final thing in months to come. Lisa, thank you for looking after me on the day, you were an utter angel and that Holly Willoughby comment,   What an absolute team, what an absolute day and what an absolute set of wonderful memories. Thank you SO much!! When are you free to do it all over again? Lots of love Vicky and Mason” xxxxx
