Highlights from Sam & Sophies Summer Wedding!
Why The Oak Tree for your Big Day?
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.
Congratulations S&S, thanks for inviting us x

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
What made you choose Gibbon Bridge for your wedding?
As we both grew up as children Hannah in The New Forest and Richard on the family farm we both have fond memories and love being in the countryside and fresh air. Now that we live in Australia we wanted to have a wedding that incorporated one thing we miss about living back in England, which is the English Countryside. We immediately fell in love with the The Gibbon Bridge Hotel as it offered everything we dreamt our wedding reception venue would have. The Gibbon Bridge Hotel allowed us to have a quaint traditional English country wedding reception after our church wedding. It has beautiful gardens with a backdrop of the rolling countryside along with very friendly staff and has a intimate and relaxed vibe.
How did Richard propose? (gushy details allowed)
Hannah lived in The Netherlands for five years before moving back to England to study nursing in Manchester where she and Richard met on a night out. Hannah and Richard’s first holiday together in 2010 was to visit her parents, allowing Richard to meet them during their university summer holiday, in The Netherlands. After that Hannah hadn’t been back to The Netherlands since because her parents then left the country. Hannah had always wanted to go back to visit The Netherlands as she has very fond memories from her time there and once they knew they were moving to Australia Richard suggested they went for her birthday in the September before they moved in the November. Hannah loved Schreveningen Beach so on her actual birthday they cycled there for the evening. Richard took Hannah to a bar on the beach front that they went to back at the beginning of their relationship (6years ago), which Hannah was surprised he remembered! Richard then asked if she wanted to go for a walk on the beach before getting something to eat. As they were walking along the beach a feather dropped in front of them then blew away and Hannah said ‘oh look it’s Grandma Haggis’ who is Hannah’s Grandma who passed away and Hannah was very close to and misses dearly. The nickname Haggis was because she lived in Scotland! A few steps further Richard then got on one knee and proposed. After the proposal he then said maybe that was your Grandma Haggis giving her blessing as she knew what was about to happen. (Hannah believes that a white feather falling in your path is a symbol that a loved one in heaven is letting you know they love you and are still there with you).
If you had to pick 1 favourite moment, what would it be? (Han & Rick)
Richard: Seeing Hannah walk down the aisle with her Dad.
Hannah: The first dance as husband and wife. I felt like a princess dancing and twirling in Richards arms around the dance floor.
Why choose a videographer to capture your BIG DAY?
We wanted to have everlasting memories of our special day that we can watch over and over again. We also know that there will be footage of different parts throughout the day that we may not have seen or that we have forgotten and wanted be able to relive these moments all over again.

“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
