We eventually returned to weddings at the end of June this year and like most suppliers in our industry, it felt like 6th gear all way through the summer of 2021. Just as we are posting this, we’re prepping for our final wedding of this very strange year which takes place tomorrow. The batteries are charging, the gear is all packed and all but 2 of our edits have been sent out to our very happy couples. We would just like to say a quick thank you to everyone who has made 2021 so much fun. Our Brides, Grooms, Bridesmaids, FOTB’s, Best Men, colleagues and many more have been amazing considering the stress and pressure which everyone felt since the pandemic began in early 2020 (and its still here). We are both really looking forward to kicking off the season again in February and all of our edits will be fully up to date. Happy New Year, lots of love, Ro & Lisa x
What a stunning day we had in October for the wedding of Eleisha & Oliver at The Great Hall at Mains! Mr. & Mrs. Flemming-Moon were such an easy going Bride & Groom, so chilled and up for anything that we asked. Someone once asked us what makes a good wedding? For us its the people who you invite, and these two invited a crew who were ready for a great party. Thank you for inviting us to your BIG DAY, lots of love, Roland & Lisa X
Officially this is WEDDING 2 and to enjoy any good sequel, you must revisit the first film, Wedding Day 1 and catch up with the backstory.
Since last November when they officially tied the knot at Mitton Hall] Mr & Mrs Mercer have been very busy with organising Wedding Day 2, moving house and also creating a brand new guest to invite to the party!
With all restrictions lifted Abbey & James blew the roof off Mitton Hall with the help of DFC Lancashire. Dan Wootton Photography as always was a barrel of laughs and it was just lovely to see their wedding story completed. Thank you both for inviting us to your wedding, it has been such a great day(s) to be involved , all the very best, Ro & Lisa x
A message from Abbey & James “Just a quick message to say we have now watched our wedding video, and shown both our parents the video. Everyone loves it! We feel so lucky that you were able to film both of our weddings 💞 you managed to capture the different atmospheres on both days, they’re just stunning and we love that we have them all to look back on. Thank you so much” 💞
Philippa & Michael celebrated their wedding at Eaves Hall with their friends and family. We were invited to capture all the memories along with David Scholes Photography. Here is their ‘Cinematic Short’ wedding film which starts at the bridal preparations at Eaves Hall with Nala & Knot before moving onto Stoneyhurst College for the wedding ceremony. Following this, we had a quick stop off at Cromwell Bridge before returning to Eaves for the rest of the day with The Funtime Frankies & Chris Hurst. What an amazing day for Philippa & Michael!
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
