Wedding Inspiration


Lancashire Wedding Videography

We have been working with a lot of our favorite Wedding Chums recently and though we would share some of the stories for you and hopefully give you a few ideas 🙂

Wedding Entertainment

Our Wedding Buddy Paul Guard hired us to produce a video to  show Brides and Grooms what he can offer for their wedding so went spent a full day at The Villa with him and his band capturing all the excitement.

Those ‘Good Ol Boys’ from The Rush asked us to film one of their live sets at The Mere Golf Resort to use on their web and social media sites so future Brides can see them in action before booking them for their reception.

We work with Dancefloor Couture A LOT! Most weddings we shoot will have one of their DJ’s/Host’s entertaining the guests so it was nice to be asked to film their second Wedding Entertainment Showcase which was held at Bar 1842 in Preston. A great day for future Brides & Grooms which gave them an opportunity to listen to musicians before booking them for the Big Day. You can find a few snaps from James Jebson who was photographing the event here

and speaking of DFC…

Robin & Adam joined us for our first Blog of 2017, we had a lot of fun filming our first WedCarKaraoke 🙂


Wedding Venues

Last month were invited to Holmes Mill in Clitheroe, this is one of James Places new wedding venues and certainly won us over with its rustic charm

Once again we attended Bartle Hall’s Wedding Showcase, this was a 5 day event which was open to newly engaged couples looking for a perfect setting for their BIG DAY.

Heaton House Farm invited us down to their Wedding Experience Evening before Christmas, this was open to couples who had booked their wedding at HHF and were looking for great suppliers. We have now been added to their recommended list which you can find here

We will be back for Mitton Hall’s open day on the 26th of February.

Thanks for reading, Ro & Lisa x


 

Charlotte & Shaun: Cheshire Wedding Video

Cheshire Wedding Videography

YouTube Version

Charlotte & Shaun tied the knot at Harthill Weddings in Cheshire, it started off as ‘That Fine Rain’ but it did not stop them from saying their vows outside with their family and friends 🙂
A BIG THANKS to Alex from Fairfield Photographic for suggesting me to Mr & Mrs Ellis, we both had a brilliant time it just got better and better as the day unfolded. ‘Pimp Your Prosecco’, Tapa’s (my fave) ice cream, throwing people in the air, lot’s of cheering and whooping, fireworks and so much more really made their wedding and unforgettable event 🙂

Congratulation to you both x

The Facebook version will be available here shortly

2013 PEN National Awards: Event Videography in Birmingham.

The 2013 PENNA Awards, held at the Birmingham & Midland Institute

I was there to capture the full day including the keynote speeches, award winners, presentations (full presentations available from Ruth Evans at PEN) and due to a problem with their photographer, i stepped in to provide photos of the award winners as well!

A very busy and surprisingly entertaining day for me with 2-3 cameras rolling, multiple microphones to capture the speeches and it was great to hear the presentations in their entirety when i got to the editing stage (listening to them live is pretty hard when you are spending most of the time watching the visual & audio settings)

Ruth & her team should be proud of this year’s event and they definitely deserved that glass of champagne at the end 🙂

Thanks to Becki Cross at Events Northern for recommending me to Ruth!

CLBE 2013: Lancashire Business Event Videography.

I was asked again to cover the Central Lancashire Business Event which is a free networking event hosted by South Ribble, ChorleyPreston Council & Events Northern. This years event took place at Chorley Town Hall and the guest speakers were Ray O’Connor from Reach Further, Andy Chemney from Ignition CBS Ltd and Mike Ode from Potential Unearthed.

As usual, i attend these events hoping to meet new contacts but always find myself too busy (i somehow manage to find time for the buffet though).

It was a great event and well worth checking out for next year if you are looking at business advice or you generally want to network.

You can find the link for last years event here.

Lancashire Promotional Video

This one was a lot of fun to film…


Me & Karen from South Ribble spent a morning around Leyland filming some of the local business owners talking about their town. For a totally unscripted shoot, they pulled out some really good performances, although as you can see here, it was not 100% perfect. We had a rough preview a couple of weeks later, which was basically me holding an iPad in front of 20ish people which slightly made me nervous but it gained some great reactions from all involved, i’ll settle for that!
Thanks to Peppermint Cottage, Haines Watts, Poppys Flowers, Paces & Laces, Leyland Market, Solicitors Direct.

A long and verrrry busy day for me on this one… 


Leyland Festival 2013 really raised the bar after a few hiccups over previous years, the sun showed its face just at the right time as thousands of people swarmed to Worden Park for a fun, family day out.
I won’t write too much about the day as you have probably just watched the film above but after reading lots of comments on their facebook page, it would appear that this years festival has kickstarted a bit of love for annual event.
Thanks to APC Overnight, Leyland Albion, Dance Talent Studio and Lucy Yates(the festival Queen herself) for their help with the film.

Isobel from Paces & Laces asked me to come down and photograph some of her shoes to upload onto their new website…

as you can probably see, there was quite a few that needed doing so we managed to get a quick production line going…SHOE-CLICK-NEXT, no time for any fancy set ups on this one!

Finally, a bit of a personal post here…my wife fosters cats for Blackpool Cats in Care and we received our first pregnant cat a few months ago so i decided to capture a few of the highlights of our time with her (and them).
The footage was shot on whatever device was in reach at the time,Camcorder, DSLR, Go-Pro and even and iPhone


Did you manage not to cry?
We didn’t!

Red Heart Ball 2013

Donna & Amy put together a fantastic event to raise money for The British Heart Foundation

IMG_1159
The Marriot Hotel in Preston certainly had their work cut out for them with 170 guests packing the room…

Over £7000 was raised on the night through tickets, donations, raffles & auction.

It got a little mad for us near the end of the night with people wanting to jump in front of the camera but all in all an enjoyable night for everyone involved!

BTW,  images will be sent out this week to those who donated and left their details with us on the night.
