Shamiso & Shingai: Weddings at Grange Barn, Cheshire.

We won’t lie, after filming this wedding, we were absolutely shattered…

A ‘BIG THANK YOU’ to Andy Griffiths Photography for referring us to Shamiso & Shingai who spent a wonderful day in the sun at Grange Barn in Cheshire.
We were really looking forward to their wedding due to the amount of dancing that they told us about in the pre-wedding meeting and it did not disappoint.
As you can see from this teaser trailer for their wedding film, once the dancing started, it did not stop. Guests of all age, rocking all day and night which was so amazing to see after such a long time of lockdown, and for us, one of the best ceremony exits we have seen in ages!

Congratulations to you both, you were amazing on the day, thanks for inviting us X

Abbey & James: Weddings at Mitton Hall

Officially this is WEDDING 2 and to enjoy any good sequel, you must revisit the first film, Wedding Day 1 and catch up with the backstory.

Since last November when they officially tied the knot at Mitton Hall] Mr & Mrs Mercer have been very busy with organising Wedding Day 2, moving house and also creating a brand new guest to invite to the party!

With all restrictions lifted Abbey & James blew the roof off Mitton Hall with the help of DFC Lancashire. Dan Wootton Photography as always was a barrel of laughs and it was just lovely to see their wedding story completed.
Thank you both for inviting us to your wedding, it has been such a great day(s) to be involved , all the very best,
Ro & Lisa x

A message from Abbey & James
Just a quick message to say we have now watched our wedding video, and shown both our parents the video. Everyone loves it! We feel so lucky that you were able to film both of our weddings 💞 you managed to capture the different atmospheres on both days, they’re just stunning and we love that we have them all to look back on. Thank you so much” 💞

Dane & Elle: Weddings at Colshaw Hall

1 year later than planned and a new baby on the way, Dane & Elle finally celebrated their BIG DAY!

The marriage of Mr & Mrs Lucas finally happened after a year of changing dates thanks to ‘You Know What’

We may have started with a little rain at the start of the day but the sun came out just at the perfect time for Richard Milnes Photography to work his magic. Colshaw Hall looked stunning thanks to the teams at Red Floral Design & The Word is Love.


Congratulation’s to you both and all the very best with the start of your new family, lots of love, Ro & Lisa x

The Light…

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)

What to do when our ‘Glorious Leader’ stops us from working!

campervan-conversion-camper life

We don’t consider ourselves overly political, the above title is not a cheap shot at Boris and his gang, it’s simply a question we asked ourselves as weddings have been cleared from now until – (please insert date when we have a better idea).
We have been lucky enough to secure video work outside of the wedding industry. Commercial videography accounted for a smaller percentage of our yearly income but now it has bumped its way up to the top for the foreseeable future, but there is still a big gap in our lives. Usually we would be deep into the summer edits, late nights in front of the monitor, no social life and eventually taking a holiday later on in the year just to get away and absorb a little Vitamin D. With all this free time and the fact that our holiday had to be cancelled, we decided toooooooooooooooo…

BUILD A CAMPER VAN

We are big fans of StayCations, some of our best trips have taken place in Good Old Blighty and after spending months in Isolation, we are ready to get out into the world.

Boris has told us that we have another 6 months of this to come, we are not sure what is going to happen in regards to us filming weddings, the dates for all our weddings from now until February have all been moved or cancelled,

are we gonna moan? NOPE!!!
Are we gonna get out and enjoy ourselves? HELL YES!

Thanks for watching, Ro & Lisa x

Getting back to work after LOCKDOWN

wedding-videographer-lancashire

At the beginning of June when the restrictions started to slightly lift, we decided to reach out to previous clients we use for our commercial side of the videography business at RTP Creative.

As of writing this (27/08/20) our next wedding so far is not until October, but, as we have come to expect since all of this kicked off and dominated our lives, things change very quickly. We know a many wedding suppliers that still think marriages will not happen this year and we can understand their concerns as there has been no official updates for the wedding sector.

For now, we are happy to be enjoying a 9-5 working week until weddings start again, who knows what our first one will look like. Will gloves and masks be the standard look in our footage? Will smaller parties make it easier for us to film?. Whatever happens we will just be glad to get back to what we love and do best.
