At the beginning of June when the restrictions started to slightly lift, we decided to reach out to previous clients we use for our commercial side of the videography business at RTP Creative.
As of writing this (27/08/20) our next wedding so far is not until October, but, as we have come to expect since all of this kicked off and dominated our lives, things change very quickly. We know a many wedding suppliers that still think marriages will not happen this year and we can understand their concerns as there has been no official updates for the wedding sector.
For now, we are happy to be enjoying a 9-5 working week until weddings start again, who knows what our first one will look like. Will gloves and masks be the standard look in our footage? Will smaller parties make it easier for us to film?. Whatever happens we will just be glad to get back to what we love and do best.
Just on the cusp of ‘You Know What’, Elisa & Aaron celebrated their beautiful wedding and what an amazing day it was.
We started off early at Middleton Lodge and although she had a few nerves on our arrival, the BONKERS BRIDESMAIDS managed to keep Elisa calm all the way through the bridal prep’s with Kathryn Farington MUA and Elisa Grace Hair working their magic. Aaron arrived with the boys to finish off the last parts to his speech and share a few drinks before setting off to the church to await his bride’s arrival.
The ceremony was so much fun to watch, lots of loud singing from both the Groomsmen and Bridesmaids and their son George adding a few well timed drops and yawns for comedy effect. Arriving back at Middleton Lodge we were lucky enough to enjoy some welcome March sun after a very rocky start to 2020 and our wedding buddy Sam Fitton Magician was on double duties as Host and one half of the Best Men team who performed a hilarious song at the end of their speech and let’s face it, if you have Chewbacca involved in your speech, YOU’VE NAILED IT!
Hot couple, great weather, gorgeous venue, amazing crowd topped off with one of our favorite bands the Warning Tones, what a superb day to be part of! Congratulations guys, lots of love x R & L
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
Louise, Jonathan & Little Isaac celebrated their wedding day at Eaves Hall with all their friends and family around them. What a lovely, relaxed day it turned out to be filled with love laughter, Isaac hogging the limelight whenever he could, a beautiful backdrop sparklers and lots of dancing to finish the night off with. CONGRATULATIONS TO Mr & Mrs Carver XXX
“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.
