Jodie & Stuart: Weddings at Eaves Hall

We first met Jodie when she was a Bridesmaid at her sisters wedding in 2018 and not long after this, her and Stuart joined us at Holmes Mill for a drink and a chat about their wedding.
It’s lovely returning to families we have filmed before. ‘Baz’ & Jodie spent a crisp Autumn day at Eaves Hall and we were invited to film the whole celebration.
The phrase of the day ‘Salad Fingers’ was introduced to us by the Bridesmaids and we were told to shout if anyone looked miserable on any shots, luckily we did not have to use it!
Mr & Mrs Barraclough had an amazing day, it was such a pleasure to spend time with this crowd again.
All the very best, lots of love, Ro & Lisa x

Lucy & Daniel: Weddings at Mitton Hall



Just to say we have watched our video and we were overwhelmed with how amazing it was.
You captured our day perfectly and we have both cried and laughed throughout watching! 
It is something we will treasure forever.
Thank you so so much. Keep doing what you do as you are amazing! 
Love,Lucy and Dan” x 

How much fun did these guys have on their BIG DAY!
It seems such along time ago that we first met Lucy & Dan at their home before Mr Covid came along and delayed their plans for a while but it was definitely worth the wait.
Along with Kerry Woods Photography, Nala & Knot and Flower Designs, we had an early and calm start before the party continued at Mitton Hall with DFC & The Funtime Frankies.

Every wedding has its own personality and for us, humour was certainly the driving force behind the entire day. We had so much fun with these two and their friends, thank you for inviting us and congratulations on both your wedding and new home, Ro & Lisa X

Ciara & Steven: Weddings at The Shankly Hotel in Liverpool

Ciara & Steven finally were married in the heart of Liverpool.

It was an early start for us at The Shankly Hotel in Liverpool to capture the morning preparation’s with the Bridal party before heading off to Liverpool Parish Church to finally see Ciara & Steve tie the knot surrounded by all their family and friends. A surprise appearance from their puppy after the ceremony was lovely to watch.
Along with Mathew Rycraft, we spent a short while capturing images of the city with the Bride & Groom before heading back to the party.
What a great day we had with Mr & Mrs Bailey, so relaxed, so easy to film and such a great crowd to spend the day with. Congratulations to you both,
Lots of Love, Ro & Lisa x

Faye + Jack

Our second wedding back after some Lockdown that apparently hit the world…

Faye & Jack celebrated their ‘BIG 2 DAYS’ on the farm with all friends and family who were ready for a party after such a long break. From the moment we arrived at the bridal prep’s, we knew this was going to be a BIG, MAD, LOUD & FUN DAY!
Faye & her Bridesmaids owned that dancefloor on both days with a little help from our favorite Silver Dude, Paul Guard & ‘The Man with The Quiff’ Ryan Smith.
On day 2 we were joined by Here’s to Us Band who kept the party going until the late hours of Sunday.

Congratulations guys and thanks for inviting us to your wedding,
Ro & Lisa x

The Light…

wedding-videography-lancashire

Silly title, I know!

Today is the 8th of April 2021, yesterday I called my mum in Spain as it was her Birthday and I mentioned that I had sent a present through Amazon Prime and it might be late. What a terrible way to celebrate your Mothers 65th Birthday but somehow, this is ‘The Norm’
As a company, we have become very lazy in regards to anything wedding-related. We use to send out monthly newsletters to our clients, keep them up to date with what their employees are doing, show them some of our latest work but that has been so hard as there has been nothing to talk about, well, nothing positive.
Our last full-day wedding was March 2020 and in that time between then and now we have filmed just 1 Lockdown Wedding, lost all of our destination jobs, a number of UK weddings, and re-arranged the remaining on multiple occasions. All of the postponements arranged with minimum fuss due to the wonderful people who chose us for their BIG DAY.
We have remained relatively busy during these strange times. The commercial side of our business really saved us from having to retrain, find new income, or simply just live on Furlough. Having spoken to many wedding suppliers over the last 12 months, it seems that many of us are putting more effort into the corporate/business side of what we produce, and to be honest, that can be one of the positives we take away from this whole experience.
With the latest government roadmap seemingly on track, vaccinations flying through the country, let’s just whisper…

“There is light”

Shhhhh, don’t jinx it!


On June 23rd (as it stands) all shackles are released and our first wedding is 2 days after this. As wedding videographers, our job is to document what happens on the day in an unobtrusive way to capture natural reactions, it’s our job to be (mostly) in the background but what about those who are at the front of the crowd? Photographers, singers, DJs, Toastmasters, and anyone else who has to engage with 100+ people for hours and keep smiling. These people will have been out of the game for nearly 18 months, confidence may be a little low, for some it could almost be like starting all over again. Their businesses have been punched heavily through 20/21 and they may just need a little hug either on the day or a little time leading upto it. If you are a Bride or Groom who has made it through the last 18 months and you are now looking forward to your new date, give your favorite suppliers a hug, the ones who helped you through the difficult times and said “No problem”
Even though they have not yet worked on your wedding, give them a like on social media, tell your friends about them, review them on Google and let them know that they are appreciated.
For our part, we are going to list all the wonderful people who referred work to us over Lockdowns, please feel free to check them out.
(BTW, i’m sure there are many more that we have forgotten)

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 🙂

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
