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
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
A beautiful September wedding in The Lake District.
“Thank you so much. It is amazing. We absolutely love it. You have captured our day perfectly. We can’t thank you both enough” xxxx
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
Sophie & Andrew, were an absolute delight to spend the day with, super chilled, up for anything and of course, a very cute couple. Myself and Lisa would like to thank you both for inviting us along to be a part of your celebrations, all the very best X
A beautiful sunny day at one of our favourite wedding venues
Our final wedding of summer was full of light and colour after a very grey August. Nic & Jo celebrated their BIG DAY at Eaves Hall with all their friends and family and what a great way to see off the summer season. Shooting alongside Lottie Designs we had so much fun with the guys at DFC who hosted the day.
Some of our personal highlights included the 6 (yes count them) 6 ushers who made a joint speech and gave Jo a royal roasting, the acoustic session from Danny and enjoying the sun in the beautiful gardens at Eaves.
Congratulations to Mr & Mrs Webber, thank you for inviting us X
We have already talked about our adventure to France for the wedding of Mr & Mrs Gillespie on our VLOG here but now that the edit is complete and watching all the footage has brought back lots of memories, i think we can delve a little further into our trip.
The drive to Normandy (forgetting the bad traffic on the English side) was such a dream, we had 1 overnight stop in Rouen before arriving at their beautiful venue just moments before our good friend Andy Keher Photography pulled up to share stories of ‘driving on the wrong side of the road’ or ‘how many toll roads do you need’?
Arriving a full day early meant we could document all the preparations which really did turn out to be half of the whole weekend, family and friends all chipped in with flowers, lights, decorations along with the amazing teams from Artis Events, Reflet Fleurs and a BIG special thanks to Perrine who fed and watered us all weekend 🙂
The wedding day was so much fun, so relaxed and such an absolute pleasure to film. Big smiles all day, lots of gorgeous food and drink, perfect weather, beautiful surroundings, great music from Popcorn Factory and Aquarius Strings….PLEASE CAN WE DO IT AGAIN!!!
Thank you to Kevin and Ailsa for not just inviting us to your wedding and taking care of us all weekend but for giving us some great memories of our own including our little trip on the way back to Blighty (video here)
