“We are over the moon with the video and can’t thank you enough. It’s amazing to be able to relive the day and it wouldn’t have been possible without the film. We will cherish it for all our lives”
Thanks again,
Rebecca and John xxx

What made you choose Gibbon Bridge for your wedding?
We chose Gibbon Bridge due to the beautiful location and stunning gardens. We could really imagine all our family and friends outside enjoying themselves on the day.
The bar area and function room are close together and both spill out onto the terrace.
Our family and friends were able to stay over and be there with us in the morning which made it extra special, not to mention the exclusivity of the venue. Also, the staff are so friendly and attentive and the food is to die for!
For us, Gibbon Bridge was the perfect venue and we are so glad that we chose it.

How did John propose?
John and I are building a house together and a year ago it was just a plot of land. On the 21st May 2017, he took me to the plot and we began to mark out the corners of our house…all very exciting. He then took me to stand under an apple tree that would be in our back garden and said he wanted to tell me his plans for this part of the garden. He told me “we are going to get a little table and chairs and we will be able to sit out here for years to come and remember that this is where I asked you to marry me.” He then got down on one knee and of course I said yes! This couldn’t have been a more surprising, romantic and sentimental proposal and it’s so nice that the memory of it is in our back garden!

Hard question but do you have one favorite moment for your wedding? (you can have more than one if you like)
One of my favourite moments was walking down the isle and seeing all our loved ones together and then seeing John waiting for me. It is a huge moment and it doesn’t last for long so I am glad it has been captured on video!

Why did you choose RTP Films to record your BIG DAY?
We chose RTP films to record our special day because the videos that we watched of other weddings on the website were phenomenal. I don’t think I was able to watch one without welling up and thinking of what it would be like to have one capturing our own big day. Not only are Roland and Lisa incredibly talented, but they are so professional and it was lovely to have them with us all day. It’s important to have people that you feel comfortable with and that make you feel at ease. The ‘sneak peak’ was brilliant and made us so excited to see the full film. We are so happy that we chose RTP films and would highly recommend them to all future brides and grooms.

 

Congratulations guys, thanks for inviting us to your BIG DAY x

Natalie & Tom: Weddings at Mitton Hall

natural-wedding-film

“Oh my god I love it!!!! Thank you so much” 

Why did you choose Mitton Hall for your beautiful wedding?

We chose Mitton Hall because we just loved the big windows at the back of the room over looking the river and the gardens. We thought it was so beautiful as soon as we left our viewing at Mitton we cancelled 2 other venue viewings as We just knew that was where we wanted to get married.

How did Tom propose (gushy details allowed)

Tom proposed in Dubai at the top of the Burj al Arab in the Al Muntaha restaurant. He had asked my dad months before and between the two of them they had arranged for my family to fly out from Saudi (where they lived) and the UK (where my brother lived) to celebrate with us afterwards! I was so annoyed as well as I thought my family were crashing our holiday together & couldn’t understand why they would all want to join us on our holiday haha! Little did I know they were all in on it!

If you had to pick one favourite moment from your special day, what would it be?

Toms favourite moment was the drinks reception after the ceremony as we got to relax with our guests and see everybody before the meal later that afternoon. Nat’s favourite part was actually the same (boring I know) along with the meal as again we got to speak to all of our guests!

Why choose a videographer to capture the day?

We chose a videographer as everyone said it’s a must have as the video captures moments you might not see for yourselves. As the bride you don’t get to see your guests arriving or the lead up to the ceremony so it will be nice to see the page boys and bridesmaids walk down the aisle etc.

Congratulations Nat & Tom, thanks for having us on your special day x

Katie & Chris: Wedding Films at Stirk House

The Story of Katie & Chris x

“Everyone has loved the film 🙂 we’ve had so many messages from people saying they’ve cried at it!! 

Thank you so much” 🙂

Katie

Why did you pick Stirk House for your wedding?

We were recommended Stirk House and as soon as we arrived on Christmas Eve to look around we fell in love. I (Katie) have a bit of an obsession with fairy lights so the tree at the front sealed the deal! Dave, Danielle and the team could have not been more amazing and truly made the day even better.

What made you decide to have a wedding video?

Because we didn’t want to miss anything! The day goes so quickly (cliche we know!) and we wanted to make sure that we could remember everyone and everything that made our day so special.

We also loved the interview idea that we had seen from your previous videos so we could look back on some precious memories from our family and friends.

What are some of your favourite memories from the whole wedding experience?

We loved the whole experience of getting married. We were really laid back in planning which made for a much smoother day as we weren’t stressing about anything going wrong!

Katie – “Peeking out of the window, hidden behind the curtain and seeing Chris arrive in his suit. It’s when it hit me that it was really happening!”

Chris – “Seeing Katie walk down the aisle towards me thinking how beautiful she looked and trying to hold it all together for the ceremony”

What did you want most of all from your your wedding day?

A huge party! We just wanted everyone to have fun and enjoy themselves. We have friends and family from all over the place, a lot of whom have never met, so to get everyone together to celebrate was important.

Barbz & Biscuit (Hayley & Pete): Weddings at The Belle Epoque, Knutsford

wedding-video-cheshire

Oh we did enjoy the wedding of Barbz & Biscuit (the video should slightly explain the names), we had such a great day with ‘The Nelsons’ and their family 🙂

The ceremony and reception all took place at The Belle Epoque in the centre of Knutsford, a great boutique wedding venue which myself and Lisa were so looking forward to filming at as it was a new venue for us (apart from the odd social doo that is) and it did not disappoint.
The Bride arrived in her Grooms lovingly restored Ford Escort on busy and bright Saturday in July while Pete (Ginger Monkey Biscuit) and the guests were seated upstairs waiting for the star of the show.

After a lovely ceremony we took the newlyweds out with their photographers Pixies in the Cellar for a relaxed walk around town, it’s so nice to see a Bride & Groom mixing in with the public on their wedding, lots of clapping and cheering from cars and pedestrians always adds to the fun.

Congratulations Hayley & Peter, thank you for making us feel so welcome x

 

Louise & Scott: Weddings at Mitton Hall, Lancashire

manchester-wedding-video

July was a pretty mad month for us and sitting right in the middle of all the chaos was Mr & Mrs Connor who invited us to film their BIG DAY at Mitton Hall.

Louise and her bridesmaids set the tone for this wedding, all relaxed and calm in the morning, no stress at all, even when Scott turned up with his Best Man whose suit was 2 or 3 sizes bigger than he ordered, no one panicked at all (in fact, it got a few laughs).
Jonny Draper joined us on photography duties for this lovely Ribble Valley wedding and Liz Hendry provided some great tunes  as we all enjoyed some sun in the garden, piggy backs during the photo shoot is always going to end with at least a dirty knee or elbow.
DFC finished the day off with Pat Mulligan and The Tonics keeping the dance floor rocking all night after a wonderful summer wedding with a great couple, congratulations guys x

A few lovely words from Scott & Louise after receiving their film 🙂

Having a videographer was something we didn’t choose straight away. Wow we are so incredibly happy that we did. You will not be disappointed with Roland and Lisa. We absolutely love our video and adored the sneak peak we received the next day! They really capture the moment of the day and even moments we don’t remember. A pleasure to meet you both and enjoyed having you at our special day. Definitely recommend you both and having a video to remember such a special day. Thank you so much. X

Browsholme Hall Weddings: Kimberley & Mike

Manchester-wedding-video

Kimberley & Michael celebrated their BIG DAY with all family & friends at Browsholme Hall which is one of our favorite wedding venues deep in the Ribble Valley countryside.

The Bride & Groom enjoyed a perfect day with Ice Cream, Jenga  and one of the longest confetti lines we have seen, David Scholes joined us for the shoot, it’s always great working with David, such a relaxed and fun photographer who we had a blast with on the day. We had a full day of musical talent including Hannah Rose for the ceremony, the Kick Back Sundays  during the drinks reception and finally Hot Biscuit performed the First Dance and provided the evening dance floor entertainment.

Our friends at Creative Cover Hire & Brides Little Helper  12 Event Catering  provide the room decor and delicious food for all the guests.

Such a lovely wedding to film, Congratulations Mr & Mrs Downes x
