Its been a while since we did any Vlogging so we made a New Years resolution to get back in the swing and share our videography world in monthly episodes.
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!
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
“Hey Roland we have watched it!! Several times!! I think i cried every time! Haha thank you so much for capturing our day we love it!! Xxx”
“Hi Roland. I know Nicola has been messaging for the majority of our contact with you. But I felt I would personally thank you. I have been watching everything you have sent all day long. Both you and lisa have done a fantastic job of capturing our special day. You have put together a piece of art that will forever ignite my memories and bring me back to one of the most important days in my life! I can’t thank you enough. I will certainly be recommending you to absolutely everyone that I know or meet that wishes to get married. Thank you again”
What made you chose The Great Hall?
Not going to lie it was the only venue we viewed and we fell in love with it straight away.. there wasnt even much of a discussion both Trevor and I looked at each other and we both knew what the other was thinking! This is the one!
Do you have a favourite part of the whole wedding experience?
I think i have a few.. firstly the vows were Trevor stated “awfully wedded wife” i started to plan our divorce (jokes)
Secondly our attempt of a perfect family photo (epic fail with both kids uncooperative and screaming)
Our mishap with the confetti cannons being set off at the cake cut instead of the first dance (my face was a picture)
Lastly our first dance with our little boy Reuben dressed as spiderman (not how we imagined our first dance to be haha!)
Jokes aside.. even with these little mishaps the entire day was still perfect, it was magical in every single way and we could not have asked for a more special day! We are truly grateful to everyone for making it happen! The drone was amazing!!!!!
What advice would you give to any Bride & Groom planning their wedding?
RELAX and CHERISH EVERY MOMENT!!! The day just goes so fast because your in a bubble of excitement, it is such a surreal day! The day is far to special to have any stress!
What made you pick RTP to film your wedding?
We had seen many videographers work over social media/internet etc.. and when we viewed the videos both Roland and Lisa had made we knew you were the guys for our job!! We haven’t yet seen our video at the time were writing this (no pressure) but we know it is going to be amazing because how you capture the days of videos we have seen is truly breathtaking! Your both so talented! We felt like we had known you both years! Such lovely people and down to earth! You helped to make our day so perfect and you have give us our memories! So Thank You!
Scorching Day, Scorching Couple!
We always get excited to film at a new venue, Jade & Tony invited us to join their friends, family and Gus for an amazing day in the sun.
Growing up I was adamant that I’d marry in castle ruins. I’ve always loved the way they look and the story they tell. The romance, the mystery. An alternative way to be the classical princess. We live locally to brougham Hall but it wasn’t until we learned that Tony’s grandparents married there 75 yers ago in the neighbouring chapel that we realised this was our perfect venue.
During the ceremony when it was time to exchange rings and I turned to the commotion and the sound of tiny little dog foot steps walking down the aisle. Tony had planned to surprised me with our dog Gus dressed in a three-piece suit as our ring bearer.
Book RTP Films as your videographer!!! You won’t regret it. Genuinely the easiest part of our planning process.
We researched different videographers from all over the country; we knew exactly what we wanted and what we didn’t want. We spent afternoons watching clips of RTP Film productions and found ourselves filled with emotion from couples weddings we didn’t even know. We knew that RTP would be able to capture the cinematic movie that we wanted.
“They made it so easy on the day too. Couldn’t recommend enough”
Congratulations J & T, thanks for having us x
A BLISTERING DAY IN THE SUN WITH 2 WONDERFUL PEOPLE!!!!
What made you choose Rivington Barn for your wedding?
We chose Rivington Barn for a few reasons…. it’s a beautiful venue, its close to home and we spent a lot of time there as a family so it holds a lot of special memories for us. It’s the only wedding venue we considered after we got engaged and we knew that my dad would have been over the moon that we were getting married there and that was really important to us!
How did Alex propose (gushy details allowed)?
Alex was very romantic, he whisked me off the Paris just before Christmas. I had no idea he was going to pop the question! I should have known really as he was being very soppy and romantic telling me how much he loved me! We went up the Eiffel Tower just as it was going dark, I moaned all the way up there as it was so cold! We spent about two minutes at the viewing point and I was like right let’s go down now it’s too cold so he didn’t manage to do it up there as planned! Instead he did it alongside the canal, I was taking some photos and videos of the tower and turned round to him getting down on one knee. It was totally unexpected, I didn’t think he had it in him!
Hard question but do you have one favorite moment for your wedding? (you can have more than one if you like)
My favourite parts of the wedding were getting ready in the morning with the bridal party, it got a bit hectic at one point as there were so many of us but it was just so nice and I felt really relaxed! Another highlight for me was walking into the wedding breakfast and everyone clapping and cheering! It just felt surreal that it was our wedding! Alex’s favourite part of the wedding was the evening do! We never left the dance floor! We played a lot of songs that reminded us of our youth and we had a foam machine for the last hour, everyone wearing shower caps jumping around the dance floor! It was definitely a night to remember!
If you could give 1 piece of advice to anyone planning their wedding, what would it be?
My one piece of advice is to enjoy the planning and work together! We got a little stressed at times but we still very much enjoyed planning it and would do it again in a heartbeat!
