Ciara & Steven finally were married in the heart of Liverpool.
It was an early start for us at The Shankly Hotel in Liverpool to capture the morning preparation’s with the Bridal party before heading off to Liverpool Parish Church to finally see Ciara & Steve tie the knot surrounded by all their family and friends. A surprise appearance from their puppy after the ceremony was lovely to watch. Along with Mathew Rycraft, we spent a short while capturing images of the city with the Bride & Groom before heading back to the party. What a great day we had with Mr & Mrs Bailey, so relaxed, so easy to film and such a great crowd to spend the day with. Congratulations to you both, Lots of Love, Ro & Lisa 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.
“Wow! Simply amazing! We absolutely love it, the best email to wake up to! Thank you so much”
This just shows how bad weather does not ruin a great wedding!
What made you pick The Titanic Hotel? It was just so cool and dramatic. It had all of the features that we love – exposed brick, greys, that industrial yet classy feel. It felt like somewhere that we would want to spend a lot of time. The service was slick but you felt comfortable and not uptight. How did Lewis propose?, gushy details allowed I was about to work away for 2 months, so the week before we took some time off. I wanted to propose before I went but by the time the ring arrived I only had one day. I tried to arrange to go somewhere nice, but Hannah just wanted to “stay at home all day”! I eventually got her to Speke Hall and had to hope there would be an opportunity. Luckily it was a nice day, and we found ourselves alone sitting on a bench in the gardens. I had prepared a poem (yes, another poem!) about things that Hannah loves, other than me, and in the last verse I got down on one knee and delivered the big words! After she had calmed down, Hannah was fuming that no-one was around to clap! What was your favourite memory of THE BIG DAY? So difficult to pick highlights! Walking down the aisle – both ways! The fireworks. Chatting to people in between courses of the wedding breakfast. The speeches. The band. The midnight pizza! At the end of the night once everyone had gone, we sat for ages outside on the colonnade with family, and it was just so nice reflecting on the past 24 hours! What advice would you give to any couple planning their wedding? – If you want the groom to help, give clear and precise instructions, and one job at a time! – Set out a clear vision of what you want, and not what anyone else wants. – Don’t discuss the plans with too many people as everyone has an opinion but it is your wedding! Also it keeps it a surprise for your guests. – Social media groups often have things for sale for a good price that you can then resell again. – Have days off from wedding planning!
CONGRATULATIONS GUYS, thanks for inviting us to your wedding x
A very early start for myself & Celynnen Photography at the wonderful West Tower wedding venue in Ormskirk to cover the Bridal preps before a packed day of fun & madness with all their friends and family.
Throwing the Bouquet seems to be a dying tradition at weddings lately so i was happy to see Jade and her girls bring it back in style, watching Marco removing and then throwing the garter was hilarious 🙂
‘The Grand Entrance’ as they smashed through a giant love heart was one of my favorite highlights of the day which also included the Limbo Dancing and the golden moment when everyone ran outside to watch the sun set after a perfect day.
The Facebook version will be available here very soon.
I love it when the guys put a little more effort into the speeches, Steven (father of the bride) had prepared a poem, karaoke session and dance routine to the Red Dwarf theme….
The Ceremony & reception all took place at Mytton Fold on new years eve which obviously added to the excitement of the day for all the guests.
Uncle Andy (Vicki’s Uncle, not mine) did a fine job of photographing the day…i wish i had put a swear box in front of Adam (the best man) for his speech, could have made a few quid on that one…a big thank you to the bridesmaids for pointing me in the right direction when it came to the interviews…also Mr & Mrs Slater for suggesting me after filming their big day.
I could not resist showing a little of the ‘Father of the Brides’ karaoke session which had Vicki turning a little red 🙂
Great wedding to finish off a fantastic year of filming fo me, 2013 is looking a lot busier already, bring on the grey hair and blood-shot eyes 🙂
