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,

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)

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.

Elisa & Aaron: Weddings at Middleton Lodge

Just on the cusp of ‘You Know What’, Elisa & Aaron celebrated their beautiful wedding and what an amazing day it was.


We started off early at Middleton Lodge and although she had a few nerves on our arrival, the BONKERS BRIDESMAIDS managed to keep Elisa calm all the way through the bridal prep’s with Kathryn Farington MUA and Elisa Grace Hair working their magic. Aaron arrived with the boys to finish off the last parts to his speech and share a few drinks before setting off to the church to await his bride’s arrival.

The ceremony was so much fun to watch, lots of loud singing from both the Groomsmen and Bridesmaids and their son George adding a few well timed drops and yawns for comedy effect. Arriving back at Middleton Lodge we were lucky enough to enjoy some welcome March sun after a very rocky start to 2020 and our wedding buddy Sam Fitton Magician was on double duties as Host and one half of the Best Men team who performed a hilarious song at the end of their speech and let’s face it, if you have Chewbacca involved in your speech, YOU’VE NAILED IT!
