Some weddings you can just have a little too much fun at and this was definitely one of them. Vicky & Mason tied the knot on a (rare) sunny day in August. Both the Bride & Groom were ready for an amazing day as soon as we started filming.
Mr & Mrs C put a quality WEDDING TEAM together at Wyresdale Park including Foxley Photography, Mr Paul Guard, Bluebells & Daisies, Karen Rhodes Events, Bon Vivant, Sugar Wishes Cakes any many others who were all on top form, Vicky was kind enough to message us the following day once she received her Instagram Sneak Peek (below)
” Roland and Lisa, we just wanted to take the time out of currently living on cloud nine to say thank you so much for taking the time to capture our day on Saturday. We truly truly had the most unreal day ever which exceeded all expectations. We have both said since that a huge part of that was down to the amazing team we had working around us. We honestly cannot thank you enough for making our day so relaxed, making us feel so at ease, have so much fun and party so hard!!! We honestly and truthfully have loved meeting you both and would recommend you a million times over. That sneak peak that we received SO SOON has captured the utter blast we had in 30 seconds which is amazing and we cannot wait to see the final thing in months to come. Lisa, thank you for looking after me on the day, you were an utter angel and that Holly Willoughby comment, What an absolute team, what an absolute day and what an absolute set of wonderful memories. Thank you SO much!! When are you free to do it all over again? Lots of love Vicky and Mason” xxxxx
If you’re gonna do it all over again, give us a call, we’ll be there in a flash! What a wonderful wedding to film, what a great couple to work with, thank you for inviting us to your MAD DAY X
“Wow! Simply amazing! We absolutely love it, the best email to wake up to! Thank you so much”
This just shows how bad weather does not ruin a great wedding!
What made you pick The Titanic Hotel? It was just so cool and dramatic. It had all of the features that we love – exposed brick, greys, that industrial yet classy feel. It felt like somewhere that we would want to spend a lot of time. The service was slick but you felt comfortable and not uptight. How did Lewis propose?, gushy details allowed I was about to work away for 2 months, so the week before we took some time off. I wanted to propose before I went but by the time the ring arrived I only had one day. I tried to arrange to go somewhere nice, but Hannah just wanted to “stay at home all day”! I eventually got her to Speke Hall and had to hope there would be an opportunity. Luckily it was a nice day, and we found ourselves alone sitting on a bench in the gardens. I had prepared a poem (yes, another poem!) about things that Hannah loves, other than me, and in the last verse I got down on one knee and delivered the big words! After she had calmed down, Hannah was fuming that no-one was around to clap! What was your favourite memory of THE BIG DAY? So difficult to pick highlights! Walking down the aisle – both ways! The fireworks. Chatting to people in between courses of the wedding breakfast. The speeches. The band. The midnight pizza! At the end of the night once everyone had gone, we sat for ages outside on the colonnade with family, and it was just so nice reflecting on the past 24 hours! What advice would you give to any couple planning their wedding? – If you want the groom to help, give clear and precise instructions, and one job at a time! – Set out a clear vision of what you want, and not what anyone else wants. – Don’t discuss the plans with too many people as everyone has an opinion but it is your wedding! Also it keeps it a surprise for your guests. – Social media groups often have things for sale for a good price that you can then resell again. – Have days off from wedding planning!
CONGRATULATIONS GUYS, thanks for inviting us to your wedding x
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 🏼 (
“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”

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!
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
Our last wedding of the Summer with Mr & Mrs Birtwell
Why did you choose Mitton hall for your wedding?
We chose Mitton for a few reasons; firstly it is beautiful, we know a lot of the staff and trusted them to make it perfect but our biggest reason was the sentimental value. Lewis’s mum worked there as GM when it was an Italian named ‘the stone house’ and after Lewis burnt down the family home at the age of 3 they actually lived there for a while. So there was no other choice in our mind.
Do you have a favourite moment from the whole day?
I loved every moment although the atmosphere in the church with the gospel choir was amazing and I think will be something I will never forget… lots of love in that room!
What advice would you give to an Bride & Groom who are planning their wedding?
My advice would be to plan early in bite sized pieces so it not all one big stress, take it easy and enjoy the process, don’t care too much about what everyone else wants and 100% get a credit card!
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!!
(Sophie: The Bride)
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.
