The War of the Roses Continues…


“We both can’t stop watching it we love it”

Why did you choose Bartle Hall for your wedding?

We both really liked the barn setting! Was just a beautiful area what with the drapes and twinkling lights. And I liked how we broke out to the main house for the drinks reception. Also we had people traveling over from Yorkshire so having the rooms were a major plus.

How did Craig propose?

Craig proposed in June 2017 we were staying in Keswick lodge retreat for my birthday. The day before my birthday we went on a lovely walk with maya our dog. And over the amazing views of Bassenthwhaite lake he popped the question. Was a perfect spot and the weather was beautiful.

Do you have a favourite memory from the whole day?

Honestly the whole day was just amazing and truly was the best day. If I had to choose a favourite part was when we walked back down the isle as a married couple! Was the first time I really saw everyone and was just a special moment. Craigs favourite was coming back in to the wedding breakfast as mr and Mrs latham. Shout out to Alex who did all our music, as he suggested playing 99 problems by jay z when we came in! And we loved it having a little dance coming in. Craig now has that as his ring tone when I phone him haha!!

Why did you pick RTP to film your BIG DAY?

We chose you as We loved your films!!! The edit of them is like a movie. We knew you would capture the moments we wouldn’t have seen, giving us a different view of our day. And when we met you, you were so friendly and put us both at ease. Would definitely recommend you!!!!

Any advice for a couple planning their wedding?

I would say it’s in the planning and organising. I had lists coming out of my ears! But helped to keep me calm and not stressed. But other then that enjoy it and when it comes To closer to the day don’t be stressing about the little details! Go with the flow.


Hannah & Joe: Weddings at Rivington Hall Barn

Our first wedding of 2019, Hannah & Joe celebrate their BIG DAY at Rivington Hall Barn


“Arghhhhhhhh WE LOVE IT!! Thankyou so much!!!”

Why did you pick Rivington Hall Barn for your wedding?

We picked rivington because as cliche as it sounds it was simply stunning. It was just the vibes we were after, the low lighting, the barn, the drapes, the fairy lights, just all of it.

What advice would you give anyone planning their own wedding?

Don’t stress! Enjoy all the planning & enjoy every minute of the day because it goes too quickly, everybody kept telling us to make sure we had a moment alone together on the day so we did & really glad we did because it was special watching everyone enjoying themselves & dancing etc! 

We know it’s tough but if you had to pick a favourite moment from your amazing day, what would it be?

Favourite moment, wow that is hard.. we loved all of it! Getting ready before hand was so much fun, the build up and then being together at the top of the aisle was pretty special. Just all of it, dancing with everyone at night & the speeches, the confetti drop, the sparkler send off, the wedding night haha! Please can we do it again?

Congratulations Hannah & Joe, thank you for inviting us xxx R & L

Jenna & Chris: Weddings at The Shireburn Arms

lancashire-wedding-video

Our final wedding of 2018, Jenna & Chris celebrated their big day at The Shireburne Arms in Lancashire.

“Oh Roland & Lisa, this is absolutely amazing. 
Thank you so much, we just love it”

What made you pick The Shireburn Arms?

Chris wanted the big fancy wedding, I wanted a smaller more relaxed wedding. Theirs seem to blend our two visions nicely, being a country pub to look at with an amazing function room and views, but also places for family to stay on site. We went in January and totally fell in love with it. 

Why RTP Films?

Why you- We looked at a few videographers. You came recommended. I stalked your website for a while. I struggle being filmed and photographed so wanted someone who wouldn’t pull us away from our wedding but blend into the background and capture our day. There are bits we don’t remember (we got a bit giddy with the wine) and from your website clips it seemed you did just that. It also helped that we had a relaxed chat on the phone before booking, I spoke to another two guys who put me right off but you were very friendly and engaging.

If you had to pick a favourite moment, what would it be? 


My favourite moment ,Arriving at the church, being welcomed by Rev Brian and having my whole family walk me in, I love that you captured the “hello” to Chris at the alter, it sums us up very well.

What advice would you give anyone planning their wedding?

Don’t get lost in the detail, it doesn’t matter. What matters is the people you need to be there are there, you have fun planning and on the day of your wedding. Don’t spend more than you think you should on anything. And, plan something to do after your wedding, as you will find you have nothing to do now the day is gone. 

Weddings at Beeston Manor

The Wonderful Winter Wedding of Ross & Sarah

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!

Vic & Graeme: Weddings at Nunsmere Hall

wedding-video-cheshire

The Beautiful Wedding of Mrs & Mrs Bailey in Cheshire

What made you choose Nunsmere Hall for your BIG DAY?
The contrast in what it had to offer the hall with the high ceilings and features and the marquee which overlooked the lake. The setting of the venue and its grounds….as soon as we looked round we fell in love with it. We also loved the fact that guests had no idea that the marquee was even there!
How did Graeme propose?
It was our 3 year anniversary and we booked a hotel to stay in Manchester (where we first met)  . Unbeknown to me Graeme had cancelled the hotel we booked together and booked the king street townhouse (junior suite) – I had no idea until we arrived – even then I didn’t click – we exchanged anniversary cards / gifts, went for a dip in the infinity pool overlooking the town hall and just before we were heading out for our meal he got down on one knee and proposed, it was perfect.
If you had to pick a favourite moment from the whole day, what would that be?
We both really loved our ceremony and the string quartet as I walked down the aisle to Graeme. We also both really enjoyed our first dance which Graeme was dreading and the party that followed, the dance floor was full all night! 
Any advice for a couple who are planning their wedding?
Make sure you have a budget – without a budget you will spend thousands more! Be savvy – use Pinterest – buy and sell pages. Make sure you choose your suppliers carefully, consider recommendations from friends who may have used them previously. The photography / video was certainly our priority! Your memory of your day will last forever but you need to ensure you have the best professionals capturing your day! 

Weddings at Owen House Barn

The Beautiful Wedding of Abigail & Chris

“Oh my god Just watched it, I couldn’t help the tears! You are incredible. Thank you so so much. I don’t know what to say!!! I cannot WAIT to see the full version, I can only imagine what it will be like!!!! How do I share it on Facebook!?!? I need to share it immediately!! You’re amazing – best decision ever hiring you guys honestly!!! Xxx” 

(Abigail – THE BRIDE)

What made you choose Owen House Barn for your BIG DAY?

We wanted a barn wedding as it was in October, we really liked the idea of a venue that we could light with candles and make it feel warm and personal with autumnal colours which we managed to achieve. When we went to see Owen house for the first time we fell in love with it, it’s just got the loveliest feel to it and the staff are brilliant. They make you feel so welcome from the off and particularly Vanessa, Dan, Chris & James. I couldn’t recommend it enough!

How did Chris propose? (gushy details allowed) 
We were due to fly to Santorini from London so the night before We stayed in London and went to sushi samba for a meal as id always wanted to go. He then surprised me with tickets to go the viewing platform of the shard. I was none the wiser, we went up and spent around an hour looking around – what I didn’t realise was that the floor was clearing out whilst we were there! It ended up being only me and Chris, my favourite song playing, candles and flower petals on the floor and a photographer hiding round the corner! Turns out he had been planning it for 6 months & had hired the top floor of the shard out to propose! I was gobsmacked and it was just perfect.

If you had to pick a favourite moment from the whole day, what would it be?
Favourite moment of the wedding, it’s so hard to pick! If I had to choose it would be walking down the aisle with my dad, seeing Chris smiling at the bottom and having everyone I love around me. 

What advice would you anyone planning their wedding?

Advice – take every moment in. It’s so cliche but the day goes SO fast and it’s over before you know it. Also – hire a videographer!!! It will enable you to look back at your day and remember all of the little things you have forgotten and the things you don’t see! You spend so much time and money on one day it makes sense to have it documented so you can look back on it for years to come!!
