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

Wedding Blog: June 2017

Hello all 🙂

We have started a new style of blog for our summer season, you can find the first episode below which features lots of our favorite venues and suppliers.

June was a mad month for us and July is going to be even more packed, this is the busiest month of any year we have ever had.
Eaves Hall invited us along to their Botanical Wedding Fayre recently, here is a short highlights video we produced for them.

We filmed our last WedCarKaraoke in May and managed to persuade 3 of our former Brides to join us for a sing along and to chat about their weddings.

Thanks for reading, Ro & Lisa x

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
