What made you choose Owen House Barn for your BIG DAY?
We wanted a barn wedding as it was in October, we really liked the idea of a venue that we could light with candles and make it feel warm and personal with autumnal colours which we managed to achieve. When we went to see Owen house for the first time we fell in love with it, it’s just got the loveliest feel to it and the staff are brilliant. They make you feel so welcome from the off and particularly Vanessa, Dan, Chris & James. I couldn’t recommend it enough!
How did Chris propose? (gushy details allowed) We were due to fly to Santorini from London so the night before We stayed in London and went to sushi samba for a meal as id always wanted to go. He then surprised me with tickets to go the viewing platform of the shard. I was none the wiser, we went up and spent around an hour looking around – what I didn’t realise was that the floor was clearing out whilst we were there! It ended up being only me and Chris, my favourite song playing, candles and flower petals on the floor and a photographer hiding round the corner! Turns out he had been planning it for 6 months & had hired the top floor of the shard out to propose! I was gobsmacked and it was just perfect.
If you had to pick a favourite moment from the whole day, what would it be? Favourite moment of the wedding, it’s so hard to pick! If I had to choose it would be walking down the aisle with my dad, seeing Chris smiling at the bottom and having everyone I love around me.
What advice would you anyone planning their wedding?
Advice – take every moment in. It’s so cliche but the day goes SO fast and it’s over before you know it. Also – hire a videographer!!! It will enable you to look back at your day and remember all of the little things you have forgotten and the things you don’t see! You spend so much time and money on one day it makes sense to have it documented so you can look back on it for years to come!!
Whilst wedding venue hunting, we found The Oak Tree of Peover on the back of a bridal magazine, we instantly loved it from the photos so we booked a viewing and fell head over heals with it. We loved everything about it, a small intimate, rustic and romance. It was perfect for us. From the very start we loved the idea of tipi’s so when The Oak Tree told us we could have tipi’s at the venue, it was a done deal.
How did Sam propose?
Sam proposed in the Lake District in my Auntie’s Cottage in Bowness. We went for a few days away over the last bank holiday in May 2016. I was upstairs and there was a knock at the door so I went to answer it as Sam was “busy”. Outside was our chocolate Labrador-Jenson with a top hat on, dickiebow and a sign round his neck saying “mummy will you marry daddy”. With my sister hidden behind a plant pot with a confetti canon, I couldn’t stop laughing. Sam then appeared behind me and got down on one knee. Little did I realised my sisters boyfriend videoing the whole thing through some railings
Oh my god that is amazing! Actually so so amazing! We can’t Stop watching it!!

What advice would you give to any Bride & Groom planning their wedding?
The advice We’d give to brides and grooms is just to enjoy every single moment of the run up and on the day. Everyone says that but it really is an amazing day and your just in this little wedding bubble so enjoy every single second you can. Try to book all your vendors as soon as possible to avoid being disappointed and to make sure you have your dream day with all your favourite suppliers. Surround yourselves with the best.
Why did you pick us to film your BEAUTIFUL WEDDING?
Roland and Lisa were recommended to us by sisters friends, we loved their videos from the beginning. Writing this we have only seen our sneak peak and that was amazing already so we are so excited to see the whole thing and the teaser! Your both so amazing and you both really made us feel at ease throughout the day. I couldn’t recommend you both more! It was a perfect day start to finish thanks to you both and we have amazing memories to cherish forever. Thank you so so much for everything.
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.
“Oh my goodness!!!! Wow wow wow. YOU ARE THE BEST. We have just watched our full wedding video. It’s the best gift we have ever received. We absolutely love it. You guys are going to be recommended to everyone I know and to all of my mums brides who come through her shop. Thank you so much. You captured everything perfectly. LOVE IT”
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.
Hard question but do you have one favorite moment for your wedding? (you can have more than one if you like)
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.
If you could give 1 piece of advice to anyone planning their wedding, what would it be?
Book RTP Films as your videographer!!! You won’t regret it. Genuinely the easiest part of our planning process.
What made you choose RTP Films to record your wedding?
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”
