Philippa & Michael: Weddings at Eaves Hall

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!

Thanks for inviting us x

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

Kate & Rick: Weddings at Mitton Hall

manchester-videographer-wedding

What a blast with a lovely couple!!!!

Why did you choose Mitton Hall for your Wedding?
Mitton Hall was actually the first venue we visited having never been there before. We knew it was pretty special when every venue we went to after our visit we just kept comparing back to Mitton Hall. It ticked every box for us. A light and airy neutral orangery wedding room, accommodation, (reasonable priced drinks) and an AMAZING outdoor space. Staff and food were just first class…it really was the perfect place for our perfect day.

What advice would you give to any couple who are planning their Big Day?
Whilst money and spending can go crazy and you so badly try to stick to your “wedding budget”…also remember that this is your special day and you will (hopefully) only be doing it once in your life. So whilst it’s good to watch the pennies, don’t take it to the extreme where you will look back with regret and think, “I wish we’d got this” and “I wish we’d booked that”. Plus don’t rush into anything, suppliers etc….you’ll know when it’s right! And our last piece of advice…things that seem so big to you last minute that you think to yourself you MUST get done…please don’t worry. It’s those things that on the day you won’t even think twice about. Just enjoy every minute and that includes the few days build up before.

I know it’s tough but what were your favorite parts of the day?
We definitely LOVED arriving at the venue. We had music blasting out of our wedding car whilst we serenaded everyone with our ahem perfect singing. Seeing all our guests waiting for us as we pulled up was so lovely.
Walking in to the wedding breakfast was also a real highlight for us…having a little boogie as we made our entrance and seeing so many smiling happy faces was amazing.
The church service was so so special for us, it felt like everything had built up to this unforgettable moment.
And generally just seeing all our ideas come together so perfectly (thanks to the help of the fantastic teams/suppliers around us)…an absolute treat!

Why pick RTP to film your wedding?

Why?….that is a good question. Still not sure why we did 😉 haha no but seriously. Roland was actually suggested to us by our photographers. And from our first meeting with the man himself we knew we’d got ourselves a winner. What an absolute legend!! Like a piece of the furniture some may say (in a good way), it never felt uncomfortable with the cameras around and it was so easy to just be yourself with Roland. We can’t speak highly enough of you and would recommend RTP in a heartbeat to anyone. Thanks for being you and doing what you do…legend 🖕🏼 (
Cheers!!!!!!!

 

Elly & Graham: Weddings at Bartle Hall

“Omg we can’t tell you how much we love it, not that we were ever in any doubt we would. Thanks so much for capturing our day so perfectly… we know you were rushed off your feet flying solo! It was so lovely having you as part of our day, we feel like you’re part of the crew now and we hope we see you at every wedding in our group”

Elly G (The Bride)

Why did you choose Bartle Hall for your wedding?

We loved Bartle Hall from the first time we went to view it. We loved the two rooms and the idea that we could have our ceremony and wedding breakfast / evening reception in different parts of the hotel. We loved the Balmoral for the evening as everything is all in one place so everybody can be together.

How did Graham propose? (gushy details allowed)

Aw, he proposed on my birthday in Iceland (the country, not the shop 😂) just as it had turned midnight… we were absolutely freezing cold after being stood outside for 3 hours waiting for the northern lights to appear but not even a twinkle! Haha.

If you had to pick a favourite moment, what would it be?

It’s so hard to choose a favourite moment, I loved the ceremony and the speeches!

Why did you pick RTP to film your special day?

I knew we were having you before we were even engaged, I saw a friends video (Nikki and Darren Parkinson) and from that moment I said if I ever got married, I had to have you and you were the first thing we booked after the venue!

 

Congratulations Elly & GG, thanks for inviting us x

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

Rebecca & John: Weddings at The Gibbon Bridge, Lancashire

wedding-film-lancashire
“We are over the moon with the video and can’t thank you enough. It’s amazing to be able to relive the day and it wouldn’t have been possible without the film. We will cherish it for all our lives”
Thanks again,
Rebecca and John xxx

What made you choose Gibbon Bridge for your wedding?
We chose Gibbon Bridge due to the beautiful location and stunning gardens. We could really imagine all our family and friends outside enjoying themselves on the day.
The bar area and function room are close together and both spill out onto the terrace.
Our family and friends were able to stay over and be there with us in the morning which made it extra special, not to mention the exclusivity of the venue. Also, the staff are so friendly and attentive and the food is to die for!
For us, Gibbon Bridge was the perfect venue and we are so glad that we chose it.

How did John propose?
John and I are building a house together and a year ago it was just a plot of land. On the 21st May 2017, he took me to the plot and we began to mark out the corners of our house…all very exciting. He then took me to stand under an apple tree that would be in our back garden and said he wanted to tell me his plans for this part of the garden. He told me “we are going to get a little table and chairs and we will be able to sit out here for years to come and remember that this is where I asked you to marry me.” He then got down on one knee and of course I said yes! This couldn’t have been a more surprising, romantic and sentimental proposal and it’s so nice that the memory of it is in our back garden!

Hard question but do you have one favorite moment for your wedding? (you can have more than one if you like)
One of my favourite moments was walking down the isle and seeing all our loved ones together and then seeing John waiting for me. It is a huge moment and it doesn’t last for long so I am glad it has been captured on video!

Why did you choose RTP Films to record your BIG DAY?
We chose RTP films to record our special day because the videos that we watched of other weddings on the website were phenomenal. I don’t think I was able to watch one without welling up and thinking of what it would be like to have one capturing our own big day. Not only are Roland and Lisa incredibly talented, but they are so professional and it was lovely to have them with us all day. It’s important to have people that you feel comfortable with and that make you feel at ease. The ‘sneak peak’ was brilliant and made us so excited to see the full film. We are so happy that we chose RTP films and would highly recommend them to all future brides and grooms.

 

Congratulations guys, thanks for inviting us to your BIG DAY x
