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 🙂
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
Highlights from the wedding of Mr & Mrs Downes at Bashall Barn in Lancashire
We have had the pleasure of spending 3 great days with the Downes/Rammell Clan, first of all we had Kimberley & Mikes 2 years ago, this year we filmed Jo & James and 6 weeks after that we finally arrive at Katy & David were it just felt like we had filmed a friends wedding.
Our first trip to Bashall Barn started off a little damp to say the least but as we have repeated consistently THIS DOES NOT SPOIL A WEDDING and i think you will agree after watching the highlights above. The venue and team at Bashall really did impress us throughout the day, so helpful and accommodating to myself, Lisa and David Scholes Photography.
The rain could not stay all day and we were treated to a spot of glorious evening sun which everyone could enjoy on the HUGE balcony overlooking the Ribble Valley. We were really looking forward to Katy and Davids BIG DAY and it definitely did not disappoint, thank you for inviting us both, it was lovely seeing you all again! Ro Lisa XXX
What made you choose Beeston Manor for your BIG DAY? We just instantly new it was right for us! Beautiful surroundings, lovely staff, amazing ceremony room and we just got the feels!!!! Why did you pick RTP Films to film your wedding? You have done our friends wedding videos and they were simply brilliant. Lisa and yourself are also very welcoming. If you had to pick a favourite moment from the whole day, what would that be? How can we choose! Just having everyone around us was amazing. But obviously the aisle walk, the vows and the first dance are some of our faves. Any advice for a couple who are planning their wedding? Don’t stress about the build up and the guest list etc. You forget about it all on the day. Take some deep breaths, take it all in (even the planning) and just get ready for the best day of your life!
Jono, Charli and the kids flew all the way from Canada for their big day at Charnock Farm last month and although we had some pretty grey weather, the wedding was so much fun to shoot.
A bit of a warning for anyone delivering a Best Man’s speech, make sure your story is suitable for the crowd you are telling it to, Jimmy realized this half way through his speech and had to quickly cut it short, it was still funny though 🙂
Thanks to Mr & Mrs Pearson for having us on their very special day, you both looked amazing, Ro & Lisa x
The Facebook version will be available here shortly
On the run up to Christmas we decided to shift gears a little in regards to our Vlogging and created 5 short videos which gave a little ‘Behind the Scenes’ action.
Now that we have just entered a brand new year its time to retreat into the editing cave so we can catch up with our project backlog and refresh ourselves for a new wedding season so our vlogs will take a little break for now but we will return very soon.
Thanks for watching R&L x
