A beautiful sunny day at one of our favourite wedding venues
Our final wedding of summer was full of light and colour after a very grey August. Nic & Jo celebrated their BIG DAY at Eaves Hall with all their friends and family and what a great way to see off the summer season. Shooting alongside Lottie Designs we had so much fun with the guys at DFC who hosted the day.
Some of our personal highlights included the 6 (yes count them) 6 ushers who made a joint speech and gave Jo a royal roasting, the acoustic session from Danny and enjoying the sun in the beautiful gardens at Eaves.
Congratulations to Mr & Mrs Webber, thank you for inviting us X
Some weddings you can just have a little too much fun at and this was definitely one of them. Vicky & Mason tied the knot on a (rare) sunny day in August. Both the Bride & Groom were ready for an amazing day as soon as we started filming.
Mr & Mrs C put a quality WEDDING TEAM together at Wyresdale Park including Foxley Photography, Mr Paul Guard, Bluebells & Daisies, Karen Rhodes Events, Bon Vivant, Sugar Wishes Cakes any many others who were all on top form, Vicky was kind enough to message us the following day once she received her Instagram Sneak Peek (below)
” Roland and Lisa, we just wanted to take the time out of currently living on cloud nine to say thank you so much for taking the time to capture our day on Saturday. We truly truly had the most unreal day ever which exceeded all expectations. We have both said since that a huge part of that was down to the amazing team we had working around us. We honestly cannot thank you enough for making our day so relaxed, making us feel so at ease, have so much fun and party so hard!!! We honestly and truthfully have loved meeting you both and would recommend you a million times over. That sneak peak that we received SO SOON has captured the utter blast we had in 30 seconds which is amazing and we cannot wait to see the final thing in months to come. Lisa, thank you for looking after me on the day, you were an utter angel and that Holly Willoughby comment, What an absolute team, what an absolute day and what an absolute set of wonderful memories. Thank you SO much!! When are you free to do it all over again? Lots of love Vicky and Mason” xxxxx
If you’re gonna do it all over again, give us a call, we’ll be there in a flash! What a wonderful wedding to film, what a great couple to work with, thank you for inviting us to your MAD DAY X
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!!
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.
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 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.
“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”

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
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.
