lancashire-wedding-video

“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”

(Nicola)

“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”

(Trevor)

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!

Natalie & Tom: Weddings at Mitton Hall

natural-wedding-film

“Oh my god I love it!!!! Thank you so much” 

Why did you choose Mitton Hall for your beautiful wedding?

We chose Mitton Hall because we just loved the big windows at the back of the room over looking the river and the gardens. We thought it was so beautiful as soon as we left our viewing at Mitton we cancelled 2 other venue viewings as We just knew that was where we wanted to get married.

How did Tom propose (gushy details allowed)

Tom proposed in Dubai at the top of the Burj al Arab in the Al Muntaha restaurant. He had asked my dad months before and between the two of them they had arranged for my family to fly out from Saudi (where they lived) and the UK (where my brother lived) to celebrate with us afterwards! I was so annoyed as well as I thought my family were crashing our holiday together & couldn’t understand why they would all want to join us on our holiday haha! Little did I know they were all in on it!

If you had to pick one favourite moment from your special day, what would it be?

Toms favourite moment was the drinks reception after the ceremony as we got to relax with our guests and see everybody before the meal later that afternoon. Nat’s favourite part was actually the same (boring I know) along with the meal as again we got to speak to all of our guests!

Why choose a videographer to capture the day?

We chose a videographer as everyone said it’s a must have as the video captures moments you might not see for yourselves. As the bride you don’t get to see your guests arriving or the lead up to the ceremony so it will be nice to see the page boys and bridesmaids walk down the aisle etc.

Congratulations Nat & Tom, thanks for having us on your special day x

Lauren & James: Weddings at Thornton Manor

Highlights from the beautiful wedding of Lauren & James

“Perfect thank you. We’ve just watched it now. It’s amazing. Can’t wait to see the full package now”

Why did you choose Thornton Manor for your wedding?

We picked Thornton Manor for the grounds and the manor house itself. We loved that it looked like it could be from a fairy tale.

What made you pick RTP Films to capture your BIG DAY?

I was recommended you by someone. I looked on your Facebook and liked the cinematic feel to them. We liked the way that the sound wasn’t necessarily what was on the screen at the time if that makes sense. The videos look really professional.

Do you have a favorite moment from the whole day?

Our favourite moment was probably when we got to walk in to the wedding breakfast as Mr and Mrs Round.

What experience did you want to give your friends and family?
The main thing we wanted was for everyone to enjoy the day. We wanted it to be very traditional during the day but a good party in the evening.

Congratulations guys and thanks for inviting us to your wonderful day , Ro & Lisa x

Kylie & Mabs: Weddings at Iscoyd Park

manchester-wedding-video

What made you choose Iscoyd for your wedding?

Iscoyd Park completely blew us away when we first visited, and every time we returned we fell more in love with it.   We had searched far and wide because although we were going for a civil ceremony, we still wanted a ceremony room that had character and was a beautiful space, which was initially a challenge. Iscoyd’s garden room was everything we hoped for and more.  Their fantastic team took care of all the little details and the day ran like a dream.

What reasons did you have for picking RTP films to record your day?

We were researching online and as soon as we saw the clips that RTP had produced we were just blown away by the quality of their films.  Each clip we viewed was consistently amazing and their work looked like something from a movie trailer. Roland and Lisa were absolutely brilliant on the day, so down to earth and also practically invisible which was something that was important to us!  The speed in which they produced an incredible ‘teaser’ for us right after the wedding is testament to their talent.

If you had to pick 1 favourite moment, what would it be?

Kylie:   standing at the front of the beautiful ceremony room with Matt as we’d just been announced as husband and wife and looking back at all of our loved ones as a ripple of cheers went through the room. It was incredible.

Matt:   I’d agree with that, plus seeing everyone spontaneously getting up off their chairs midway through the meal and dancing to Sweet Caroline!  We had a brilliant acoustic guitarist, Jai, playing in the background and as the drinks flowed everyone got a bit carried away between courses, which was hilarious.

What sort of experience did you want for your guests?

We wanted to create the feeling of an intimate ceremony and drinks reception, following by a very relaxed, party vibe for the wedding breakfast and evening.   It was all easy to achieve at Iscoyd, with the stunning tall windows and elegance of the garden room, which was later transformed by the band whilst we all dined next door.

Having a musical backdrop to the whole day was also very important to us.   Nero string quartet played for us at the ceremony and drinks reception, followed by Jai’s acoustic set, then on into the evening with the amazingly energetic party band Mad Hen, and finally late night dancing to classics played by our friend Graham ‘Lefty’ Newlands, the resident DJ at London’s Guilty Pleasures.

All in all we were thrilled with the way that the day unfolded.  Every last bit of planning was completely worth it!

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Roberts x Ro & Lisa

 

Claire & Paul: Weddings at The Belsfield Hotel, Cumbria

wedding-video-cumbria

Snow was predicted, Sun took it’s place for this beautiful wedding in The Lake District

1) Why did you choose The Belsfield for your wedding?

We have always loved visiting the Lake District and my grandparents had a boathouse in Bowness for many years so we loved the homely feeling that the lakes had for us. The Belsfield stood out immediately on our tour of the many venues that we had seen online. In fact, I think it was my Dad initially who had stumbled across the Belsfield when we started looking at venues. By coincidence Paul’s parents had stayed there many years ago too, well before the Laura Ashley refurb!

2) What made you want a videographer for your wedding?

We had been told by many of our married friends how fast the day goes so knew it was important for us to capture the day from beginning to end. We loved recently watching my parents wedding video and knew that was something we would want to be able to do in years to come.

groom-cumbria-slick

3) What were your favourite parts of the BIG DAY?

Claire- I find it hard to choose … at the start of the day it would have to be the dress reveal to my Dad but I also loved spending the morning with my 3 best friends, mum and Paul’s mum getting ready, then I’d say mine and Paul’s entrance to the wedding breakfast to ‘You’ve got the love’ and all the cheering and probably the moment Ellie Sax came on – we all had so much fun dancing the night away!
Paul- hearing the string quartet begin Des’ree Kissing You & seeing Claire walk down the aisle, unexpectedly, actually enjoying delivering my speech & the moment after the first dance, when the confetti cannons went off & Ellie Sax setting the tone for the night!
(We could go on & on … readings during the ceremony, speeches, string quartet, mind reader, casino – we loved it all!)

4) How did Paul propose? (Gushy details are allowed)

Paul first planned to propose when we were on holiday in Thailand, only I fell poorly so he had to re think his plan for when we were home! We had a birthday weekend in Chester planned a month or so later. I love a good picnic & the sun was shining so we went to a beautiful park for the afternoon. Little did I know, why Paul insisted on carrying the picnic bag over his shoulder covering his back pocket which had the ring in! During the picnic Paul climbed onto one knee & asked if I would marry him… he said some lovely words too but I was so in shock so I don’t think I registered what he had said… (apparently I grabbed the ring out of his hand and said is this real) … of course I said yes and couldn’t wait to phone our friends and family who were delighted. I still remember now how genuinely happy everyone was for us, it was a lovely lovely feeling!!

Gemma & James: Weddings at Mitton Hall

Highlights from the marriage of Mr & Mrs Tomkins

“It’s fantastic!!! Love it!!!! Thank you guys so much” x (Gemma)

Why Mitton Hall?
The reason we chose Mitton Hall, we were basically blown away by the beautiful building and it’s surroundings. We thought it would be the perfect venue for a wedding our size. Also, all of the staff on every visit there made us feel so welcome, and I felt they were so thorough and organised in covering every aspect of the wedding we had in our minds. They had everything under control and this showed on the wedding day as the day couldn’t of gone any better for me.

What made you want a videographer?
The reason for wanting a videographer for us meant capturing the moments that as a bride and groom you don’t get to see. Everybody tells you before your wedding that the day will go so fast and you forget moments so quickly so we wanted to be able to re watch and re live the day again and again.
A another big reason for me is capturing moments of Oscar being him crazy self and all the kids being the age that they are, playing and dancing ect together, I didn’t want to forget things like that either.

lancashire-wedding-video-beautiful

 

Favourite parts from the BIG DAY?
For me it was the ceremony, definitely. I really loved saying my vows to James, and surprisingly I wasn’t as nervous as I thought I would be. And for James, he also says the ceremony and having all our friends and family celebrating together.

How did James propose?
James proposed basically at home, just me and him there. We both discussed marriage early on in our relationship (very grown up of us haha) so it was something we knew we both wanted. And it was the day after a friends wedding, so I think he got the wedding bug, or maybe people pestering him at the wedding saying “when are you two getting married then???”

Congratulations Gemma & James, thank you for inviting us to your very special day 🙂 Ro & Lisa x
