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.

Rachael & Lee celebrated their BIG DAY at Heaton House Farm in August and we were lucky enough to be invited to film all the fun.
To say we had fun with this couple is an understatement, Lee was probably one of the most enthusiastic Grooms we have ever had, he even took the time the following day to send us a message…
‘Lee’ “Oh my days! After Rach showed me this sneak peak we are absolutely ecstatic and cannot wait to see the final video! Thank you for all you’ve done to capture our special day and also thank you for being just a top top bloke you really helped make the day by just being yourself !

Top top people so professional and amazing ! “
‘Rachael’ “So today our wedding video arrived ❤️ Since finding out yesterday from Roland that it had been posted, we had been watching out for the post all morning, like kids at Christmas! Having initially not been keen on being filmed (typical woman!), this video has by far been one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. The moments that have been captured are so precious, and the editing, stylisation and music are perfect”
Thank-you to @rtpfilms75 for giving us a memory that we can cherish and share with our friends and family. You both rock!
The vows which they wrote provided a lovely touch to the ceremony, we loved this couple , such a great crowd to film XXX
Becks & Ash celebrated their BIG DAY with friends, family and their dog at Eaves Hall. We started off at the Bridal Preparations with David Scholes Photography and Jason from Flower Design before heading up to St Peters Church at Stonyhurst College to film The Groom & Guest arrivals, Ash was so nervous before the ceremony.
Following the ceremony we headed up to Cromwell Bridge for a few shots before joining everyone and continue the celebrations. Eaves Hall looked stunning and is definitely one of our favourite venues with amazing gardens which make a great backdrop for your wedding film. Thanks to Mr & Mrs Walker for inviting us to your Best Day, we had a blast and it was great to see one of our couples from last year.
A Stunning Spring Wedding in the heart of the Ribble Valley
“Hi Roland and Lisa, Thank you so much the video. We absolutely love it! You captured everything so perfectly. I’ve watched it 5 times already. The extras are fab too. I’d forgotten a lot of it. Thank you so much. It’s something I will treasure forever” Kayleigh
Kayleigh & David tied the knot on a bright spring day in Croston, the scenery looked picture perfect for their walk to the church. This wedding was a joy to film, so chilled out during the whole day, a great family celebration with quite a few familiar faces for us as well as one of our favourite wedding singers Alex Birtwell.
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.
We picked rivington because as cliche as it sounds it was simply stunning. It was just the vibes we were after, the low lighting, the barn, the drapes, the fairy lights, just all of it.
What advice would you give anyone planning their own wedding?
Don’t stress! Enjoy all the planning & enjoy every minute of the day because it goes too quickly, everybody kept telling us to make sure we had a moment alone together on the day so we did & really glad we did because it was special watching everyone enjoying themselves & dancing etc!
We know it’s tough but if you had to pick a favourite moment from your amazing day, what would it be?
Favourite moment, wow that is hard.. we loved all of it! Getting ready before hand was so much fun, the build up and then being together at the top of the aisle was pretty special. Just all of it, dancing with everyone at night & the speeches, the confetti drop, the sparkler send off, the wedding night haha! Please can we do it again?
Congratulations Hannah & Joe, thank you for inviting us xxx R & L
