Covid 19: Our time in isolation

covid 19 - isolation - corona

We are all in this together, there is no escaping the news on T.V, radio or social media, this thing means business and we all have to do our part to get through this very strange and troubling period in all our lives.

In regards to our line of work, this thing has ripped through the wedding industry and stopped any means of work for us all until at least September this year (or so we have been informed). Local registrars have cancelled all their ceremonies upto the end of August (again, so far) which obviously means all Brides & Grooms during this period will have to postpone/cancel their weddings. Luckily we have managed to rearrange the majority of our bookings for later this year and a handful for next year but we’re sure that there have been many cases were businesses have had to lose potential earnings over the next 6 months.
Financial problems aside, what do we do in this period of Lockdown? for myself and Lisa, we have managed to create a home gym to keep ourselves fit, we do make use of our ‘Government Allotted Walk’ with Marvin every morning in which we observe strict Social Distancing. Netflix ,Amazon Prime & Disney+ are filling in gaps here and there, luckily we have had pretty good weather in our first week so sitting in the garden listening to music has been a very welcome change during the week.
Feeding our creative needs during this downtime was always going to be easy, we are just gonna film it and have some fun!

Creating these short films has been a fun and positive experience for us and in a way it will be a reminder of what happened in our life during the time we spent with Covid 19.

Meet Gina & Jack, a Marvel, Star Wars, Disney, D.C loving cute couple who invited us to a barn for a party.

So how did we meet these two, well it was a Sunday evening in August, myself and Lisa were sat on the decking finishing off our wine and a message came through on Instagram basically saying “Our wedding is in 4 months, we had not considered a videographer, are you free”. After and hour of getting to know each other, comparing dog photos they decided to invite us a long to their amazing wedding at Bashall Barn.
Oh we had sooooo much fun with The Gorrells & Nelsons, they do like to party and we absolutely loved the movie inspired deco. G + J Assembled a stellar #WeTeam including Daisy Chain Photography, Chris from DFC Lancashire, Lucie MUA, Wedlocks, Brides Little Helper, Sam Williams Flowers, Polka Pops, Brides at Charnock Farm, Designed by Natalie.

Congratulations to you both and thank you for making us feel so welcome, R + L XXX

Bridie + Simon: Weddings at Styal Lodge

It rained all day, they smiled all day X

“We have received and watched our video. I can’t express how grateful I am to you. Your hard work and creativity has captured the day so perfectly. You have done an incredible job and we are both delighted with it. Thank you so so much!” 

Once again this just goes to show that the British weather does not make one difference to the enjoyment of any wedding day.

It’s fair to say that myself and Damian Brandon Photography had a blast with Bridie, Simon and all their guests. From the relaxed vibe at the bridal preps, the beautiful ceremony, very cool reception at Styal Lodge all the way through to the dance floor action with Sax Every Weekend & The Provocateurs it was all just so much fun to film.
The more weddings we are involved in, the smaller the world seems to get as it was pointed out by Bridie that she had seen us only weeks earlier at Sophie & Andys Big Day which i think she makes a very brief appearance in.

Congratulations guys and thanks for inviting us X

From the moment we arrived at their family home in Ingleton, The Hortons made us feel very welcome. The girls were all in a great mood (absolutely the number 1 sign it’s going to be a GOOD UN) the sun was shining, Soph was calm as the calmest of Cucumbers

a beautiful day in the sun with lots of dancing peeps 🙂

Alex & Beth invited us to film their BIG DAY at The Grange Hotel in Cumbria and what a fun and mad wedding it turned out to be thanks to Paul Guard revving up their willing guests throughout the whole day. There were so many golden moments for us to film (and daft ones, Paul getting upstaged by a car and a guest turning his room window into a bar)
A packed dance floor always means there has been an amazing wedding and this one proved that, what a great day for Mr & Mrs P.


Thank you for having us and CONGRATULATIONS, R&L X
