Claire & Paul: Weddings at The Belsfield Hotel, Cumbria

wedding-video-cumbria

Snow was predicted, Sun took it’s place for this beautiful wedding in The Lake District

1) Why did you choose The Belsfield for your wedding?

We have always loved visiting the Lake District and my grandparents had a boathouse in Bowness for many years so we loved the homely feeling that the lakes had for us. The Belsfield stood out immediately on our tour of the many venues that we had seen online. In fact, I think it was my Dad initially who had stumbled across the Belsfield when we started looking at venues. By coincidence Paul’s parents had stayed there many years ago too, well before the Laura Ashley refurb!

2) What made you want a videographer for your wedding?

We had been told by many of our married friends how fast the day goes so knew it was important for us to capture the day from beginning to end. We loved recently watching my parents wedding video and knew that was something we would want to be able to do in years to come.

3) What were your favourite parts of the BIG DAY?

Claire- I find it hard to choose … at the start of the day it would have to be the dress reveal to my Dad but I also loved spending the morning with my 3 best friends, mum and Paul’s mum getting ready, then I’d say mine and Paul’s entrance to the wedding breakfast to ‘You’ve got the love’ and all the cheering and probably the moment Ellie Sax came on – we all had so much fun dancing the night away!
Paul- hearing the string quartet begin Des’ree Kissing You & seeing Claire walk down the aisle, unexpectedly, actually enjoying delivering my speech & the moment after the first dance, when the confetti cannons went off & Ellie Sax setting the tone for the night!
(We could go on & on … readings during the ceremony, speeches, string quartet, mind reader, casino – we loved it all!)

4) How did Paul propose? (Gushy details are allowed)

Paul first planned to propose when we were on holiday in Thailand, only I fell poorly so he had to re think his plan for when we were home! We had a birthday weekend in Chester planned a month or so later. I love a good picnic & the sun was shining so we went to a beautiful park for the afternoon. Little did I know, why Paul insisted on carrying the picnic bag over his shoulder covering his back pocket which had the ring in! During the picnic Paul climbed onto one knee & asked if I would marry him… he said some lovely words too but I was so in shock so I don’t think I registered what he had said… (apparently I grabbed the ring out of his hand and said is this real) … of course I said yes and couldn’t wait to phone our friends and family who were delighted. I still remember now how genuinely happy everyone was for us, it was a lovely lovely feeling!!

Donna & Matt: Weddings at The Shireburne Arms, Lancashire

 “It’s flawless, loved re living the day some of your best material

yet, wouldn’t change anything your sir have done us proud thank you” 

Matt

Why did you choose The Shireburne Arms & St Peters Church?

We picked the Shireburn because we loved the laid back vibe of it, the location within the ribble valley with the views & we thought it suited our theme of a rustic winter wonderland perfectly. We also fell in love with Sarah & the staff at the Shireburn who were super helpful & made the whole process really easy. The food is also amazing there too.

St. Peter’s was the closest Catholic Church to the Shireburn & was the most beautiful church we had seen. The drive up to Stonyhurst is so beautiful and Matt had worked their at the beginning of his career too & he had loved it so we thought it would be perfect. We thought the pictures would be lovely too.

What made you want to have a wedding video?

We definitely wanted a wedding video to capture every moment of the day. It goes so fast & there’s so much going on that we didn’t want to miss a second. We also wanted to be able to look back on it & watch the day over & over again.

Do you have a favourite memory form the whole wedding experience?

The whole day was just amazing. Favourite memories are walking into the church & seeing everyone & seeing Matts face. The speeches which were fab. Just having everyone around us there to celebrate with us. We loved every second of it. Seeing the room for me was also a highlight because it was perfect, exactly how I imagined it would look & more. It was the perfect setting for the perfect day.

What kind of day did you want to give your guests?

We wanted guests to feel comfortable, relaxed & chilled. We didn’t want anyone to feel like they were on their best behavior. We just wanted it to be really relaxed & for everyone to have the best time with lots of food, drink & dancing 🕺

Natalie & Lee: Weddings at New House Farm, Cumbria

A beautiful wedding In The Lake District with Mr & Mrs Kent x

“We absolutely love it!!! Thank you so much, Can’t wait to show everyone!”

Natalie & Lee

Tell us about the engagement?
Engagement was last March in Dubai, Lee surprised me with the tickets for my 30th birthday and proposed while we were out there 4 days later on our 2 year anniversary.
What made you choose New House Farm for your wedding venue?
We just knew we wanted to get married in a barn with lots of fairy lights and candles and when we drove to the lakes to look at the venue after finding it on the internet we just fell in love with it. And the area was beautiful.
Why did you want a wedding video?
We wanted a wedding video so we could remember the day in a way that photos can’t quite provide, seeing some of the bits we missed or just didn’t manage to take in. I’m looking forward to watching the ceremony back and especially listening to the speeches again as I can’t remember them! (The things photos alone can’t do).
What were your favourite memories of the whole wedding experience?
Hard to pin point favourite memories as it was all so amazing, but things that stood out; I loved getting ready with the girls in the morning, walking down the aisle and partying with everyone we love in the same room.

Armathwaite Hall Wedding Videography: Gillian & Michael

A perfect day for a wedding deep in the Cumbria countryside is what we hoped for and this one did not disappoint.

Gillian & Michael’s Lake District celebration at the stunning Armathwaite Hall Hotel was such a joy to film, the sunny lakeside setting gave us a chance to capture many beautiful and natural scenes. The Groom was walking around the hotel very early in the morning greeting his guests and soaking up the wonderful atmosphere around Bassenthwaite Lake. Michael only just kept it together as his Bride walked down the aisle but a cheeky slap on the bum from his Bestman & brother took his mind of any tears for just long enough. The drinks reception had a lovely, relaxed vibe with the classical musicians playing whilst guests enjoyed Ice-Cream,Champagne & Sun Sun Sun.

Mike & Gillians children stole most of the day with a great rendition of He never leaves the seat up’ and a great opening speech which you can see in the video below.

The children also joined them for their first dance and then the night kicked off with a Ceili Band & BBQ on the terrace as the sun set on this Glorious British Wedding.
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Peacock x
