Covid 19: Our time in isolation

covid 19 - isolation - corona

We are all in this together, there is no escaping the news on T.V, radio or social media, this thing means business and we all have to do our part to get through this very strange and troubling period in all our lives.

In regards to our line of work, this thing has ripped through the wedding industry and stopped any means of work for us all until at least September this year (or so we have been informed). Local registrars have cancelled all their ceremonies upto the end of August (again, so far) which obviously means all Brides & Grooms during this period will have to postpone/cancel their weddings. Luckily we have managed to rearrange the majority of our bookings for later this year and a handful for next year but we’re sure that there have been many cases were businesses have had to lose potential earnings over the next 6 months.
Financial problems aside, what do we do in this period of Lockdown? for myself and Lisa, we have managed to create a home gym to keep ourselves fit, we do make use of our ‘Government Allotted Walk’ with Marvin every morning in which we observe strict Social Distancing. Netflix ,Amazon Prime & Disney+ are filling in gaps here and there, luckily we have had pretty good weather in our first week so sitting in the garden listening to music has been a very welcome change during the week.
Feeding our creative needs during this downtime was always going to be easy, we are just gonna film it and have some fun!

Creating these short films has been a fun and positive experience for us and in a way it will be a reminder of what happened in our life during the time we spent with Covid 19.

Jono & Charli: Wedding films at Charnock Farm, Lancashire

Lancashire Wedding Videography

A very foggy day for our first wedding of 2017….

Youtube Version

Jono, Charli and the kids flew all the way from Canada for their big day at Charnock Farm last month and although we had some pretty grey weather, the wedding was so much fun to shoot.

A bit of a warning for anyone delivering a Best Man’s speech, make sure your story is suitable for the crowd you are telling it to, Jimmy realized this half way through his speech and had to quickly cut it short, it was still funny though 🙂

Thanks to Mr & Mrs Pearson for having us on their very special day, you both looked amazing, Ro & Lisa x

The Facebook version will be available here shortly

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.

Louise & Stuart: Wedding Videography at Astley Hall & Charnock Farm.

I had an absolute blast on this day…

We started early on in the Leyland Lion to film Stu & the guys and then moved on to Astley Hall for the ceremony.

The sun was shining as Louise arrived and the ice was truly broken when the registrar made a little hiccup which generated the running joke of the day!

Now then, filming the interviews is something i am very used to by now but i was definitely not prepared for THE AUNTIES who completely took over my job which proved hilarious (boy can they talk)…

This was my first time shooting at Charnock Farm, a great venue if anyone is looking to book there and it was nice to be shooting with my photo buddy Tim Emmerton, one of the best around 🙂

I am getting to know the Rileys pretty well now from past weddings and this one certainly had their stamp all over it, a fun wedding for everyone present!

BTW, 10 years ago was the first time i ever shot a wedding video and it was also at Astley Hall 🙂
