Paula & Robert: Weddings at Delamere Manor

Can we have more Puppies at Weddings PLEASE!!!!

We had sooooo much for with Paula, Rob & Julian at Delamere Manor last month, everything just worked perfectly. Mr. & Mrs. Lowe were such and relaxed and funny couple, they were just a pleasure to work with alongside Richard Milnes Photography.
Whilst out for a walk in the sun, Julian turned up and this just totally made our day seeing their beautiful puppy bounce towards them, loved it!
Congratulations guys, thank you for inviting us and making us feel so welcome, Ro & Lisa X

The Light…

wedding-videography-lancashire

Silly title, I know!

Today is the 8th of April 2021, yesterday I called my mum in Spain as it was her Birthday and I mentioned that I had sent a present through Amazon Prime and it might be late. What a terrible way to celebrate your Mothers 65th Birthday but somehow, this is ‘The Norm’
As a company, we have become very lazy in regards to anything wedding-related. We use to send out monthly newsletters to our clients, keep them up to date with what their employees are doing, show them some of our latest work but that has been so hard as there has been nothing to talk about, well, nothing positive.
Our last full-day wedding was March 2020 and in that time between then and now we have filmed just 1 Lockdown Wedding, lost all of our destination jobs, a number of UK weddings, and re-arranged the remaining on multiple occasions. All of the postponements arranged with minimum fuss due to the wonderful people who chose us for their BIG DAY.
We have remained relatively busy during these strange times. The commercial side of our business really saved us from having to retrain, find new income, or simply just live on Furlough. Having spoken to many wedding suppliers over the last 12 months, it seems that many of us are putting more effort into the corporate/business side of what we produce, and to be honest, that can be one of the positives we take away from this whole experience.
With the latest government roadmap seemingly on track, vaccinations flying through the country, let’s just whisper…

“There is light”

Shhhhh, don’t jinx it!


On June 23rd (as it stands) all shackles are released and our first wedding is 2 days after this. As wedding videographers, our job is to document what happens on the day in an unobtrusive way to capture natural reactions, it’s our job to be (mostly) in the background but what about those who are at the front of the crowd? Photographers, singers, DJs, Toastmasters, and anyone else who has to engage with 100+ people for hours and keep smiling. These people will have been out of the game for nearly 18 months, confidence may be a little low, for some it could almost be like starting all over again. Their businesses have been punched heavily through 20/21 and they may just need a little hug either on the day or a little time leading upto it. If you are a Bride or Groom who has made it through the last 18 months and you are now looking forward to your new date, give your favorite suppliers a hug, the ones who helped you through the difficult times and said “No problem”
Even though they have not yet worked on your wedding, give them a like on social media, tell your friends about them, review them on Google and let them know that they are appreciated.
For our part, we are going to list all the wonderful people who referred work to us over Lockdowns, please feel free to check them out.
(BTW, i’m sure there are many more that we have forgotten)

Weddings at Beeston Manor

lancashire-wedding-video

The Wonderful Winter Wedding of Ross & Sarah

What made you choose Beeston Manor for your BIG DAY?
We just instantly new it was right for us! Beautiful surroundings, lovely staff, amazing ceremony room and we just got the feels!!!!
Why did you pick RTP Films to film your wedding?
You have done our friends wedding videos and they were simply brilliant. Lisa and yourself are also very welcoming.
If you had to pick a favourite moment from the whole day, what would that be?  
How can we choose! Just having everyone around us was amazing. But obviously the aisle walk, the vows and the first dance are some of our faves.
Any advice for a couple who are planning their wedding?
Don’t stress about the build up and the guest list etc. You forget about it all on the day. Take some deep breaths, take it all in (even the planning) and just get ready for the best day of your life!

Naomi & Gary: Weddings at Thornton Manor

CUTE COUPLE ALERT!!!

Why did you choose Thornton Manor for your wedding?

We chose Thornton Manor for a number of reasons; firstly the ceiling in the music room reminded us of our first holiday together when we visited the Sistine Chapel, the exit of the music room looks like the wardrobe from beauty and the beast!! Being a huge Disney geek I loved this. The grounds themselves are beautiful and the whole Manor House itself is simply stunning, romantic and perfect.

What are your favourite memories from the whole experience?

When I walked into the ceremony room and saw Gary. In all honestly I don’t remember what the room looked like. The only thing I could see was Gary. Spending the time on our own during the pictures was amazing. Of course the speeches- have one of my oldest friends walk me down the aisle and do a speech is a little unconventional so I was worried about his speech but it was perfect!
Gary said his favourite memory was seeing me walk down the aisle and walking into the music room together passed all of our guests.
What advice would you give anyone planning their own wedding?
Take full advantage of your wedding party, get them making favours and on the day before your wedding turn your phone off and divert all calls to your chief bridesmaid. You don’t want to be stressed out with guests and suppliers calling so get them to call the groom or a bridesmaid! Don’t worry about the small stuff. I had espresso martini split on my dress, my dress strap broke, the cake was wonky, out canapés were wrong  and Gary’s pants split! But it was without a doubt the best day of our lives!

Congratulations Guys, thanks for inviting us to your BIG DAY xxx

Katy & Stuart: Weddings at The Inn at Whitewell

lancashire-wedding-video

In a pub by a river on a very sunny day…..

Why did you choose the The Inn at Whitewell for your wedding reception?

We had never been to the Inn before but as soon as we walked in we were taken by its charm and it’s stunning setting. The staff could not be more welcoming and helpful and we knew that this was the place for us instantly.

How did Stuart propose?

Stuart proposed on an amazing holiday in Cuba, on the beach, at sunset!! Who  knew he had it in him!

I know its hard but do you have a favourite memory from the whole wedding experience?

Our favourite bit of the wedding is a bit cliché but sharing it with all our friends and family; when else do you get everybody that is special to you under one roof!

What advice would you give any Bride & Groom who is looking to plan their wedding?

My advice is to be organised and book things well in advance to avoid disappointment! But also to trust the experts; they have done it all a million times before! Ensure to book people who make you feel good, who you can work alongside but also that can work alongside each other. Build a team around you that you love!

Congratulations Katy & Stu, thanks for inviting us to your BIG DAY, Ro & Lisa x
