“Omg we can’t tell you how much we love it, not that we were ever in any doubt we would. Thanks so much for capturing our day so perfectly… we know you were rushed off your feet flying solo! It was so lovely having you as part of our day, we feel like you’re part of the crew now and we hope we see you at every wedding in our group”
Elly G (The Bride)
Why did you choose Bartle Hall for your wedding?
We loved Bartle Hall from the first time we went to view it. We loved the two rooms and the idea that we could have our ceremony and wedding breakfast / evening reception in different parts of the hotel. We loved the Balmoral for the evening as everything is all in one place so everybody can be together.
How did Graham propose? (gushy details allowed)
Aw, he proposed on my birthday in Iceland (the country, not the shop 😂) just as it had turned midnight… we were absolutely freezing cold after being stood outside for 3 hours waiting for the northern lights to appear but not even a twinkle! Haha.
If you had to pick a favourite moment, what would it be?
It’s so hard to choose a favourite moment, I loved the ceremony and the speeches!
Why did you pick RTP to film your special day?
I knew we were having you before we were even engaged, I saw a friends video (Nikki and Darren Parkinson) and from that moment I said if I ever got married, I had to have you and you were the first thing we booked after the venue!
Congratulations Elly & GG, thanks for inviting us x
Cramming 5 days of wedding celebrations into 2 minutes, let’s do this!
“Wow wow wow!!! Absolutely love it!!!”
(Kate – The Bride)
Why did you choose Portugal for your wedding?
Kate – We love Portugal, it’s a beautiful place, we always wanted a beach wedding and when we visited Evaristo we knew it was perfect for us! The food is amazing and we wanted to get everyone together to spend some quality time together rather than a one day rush!
Iain – Same as Kate really, beautiful place, the people are really welcoming and food is amazing. Also for what you get compared to the UK it’s a lot better value for money oh and of course the weather
What were your favourite parts of the whole wedding vacation?
Kate- my favourite part of the wedding (there are so many to choose from) was the wedding day itself. Getting ready with my favourite ladies all together, wearing the most beautiful dress and walking down the steps at Evaristo seeing Iain waiting for me (nothing new there). My hen do has also got to be a close second. It was a perfect traditional venue with a Portuguese live band, tapas and drinks flowing all night (followed by a boogie down on Albuferia strip). We also got an Irish lad to sing and play the guitar for us so we could dance to some English songs. All the girls made such a huge effort with the spa, games and memories with my best pals. They all made such an effort and made me feel so special!
Iain – Hard to choose just 2 really, the first has to be wedding day, what a day. It was such a whirlwind in regards to the amount of jobs Kate gave me our Kris to do on the day but like a true champion my best men helped me deliver by 2pm then I got chance to relax. I think what I loved most about the day most was where ever I looked people where having the best time, the food was amazing the music equally as good.
The second is the BBQ the day after, as everyone knows I love a good after party, after an amazing event, I also think it was again a great time for everyone to hang out that once more make some extra friendships, talk about the wedding and week we had together.
What experience did you want to give your guests?
Kate -We wanted to get all of our best mates and families together for a holiday to spend quality time together. We wanted to bring people together and give them an experience they would always remember. People don’t often make such an effort to holiday with friends so we wanted to make the most of an opportunity to have all our nearest and dearest together.
Iain – Same as Kate really we both had the same goal with this was to get as many of our nearest and dearest for presents and anything else all we wanted was time with our family and friends
What made you want to have your wedding filmed?
Kate – We wanted to capture the memories on film so we could get ‘the feeling’ when we watched it back. Photos just don’t capture the experience like a video does. Plus it allows us to share the experience again with those who mean so much to us!
Iain – Well I’ve known Roland for 17 years now, apart from him having an amazing talent and captures the essence of a wedding. Also the magic film make it a lot better than photos, films are timeless and being a film addict I wanted that.
“Absolute masterpiece mate! Loved it so much and can’t wait to share” – Ben Langstreth (Groomy)
Why did you choose Heaton House Farm as your wedding venue?
The moment we walked into Heaton House we fell in love. The set up, the aspect, the whole family feel gave it a pull over anything we had seen… and we saw a fair few. The views speak for themselves, incredible and the added bonus of having our nearest and dearest able to stay on site to debrief over a classic English breakfast the next morning. We knew from deal with the Heaton House Farm team they would be a well oiled machine… and they delivered.
Why did you pick us to create your wedding film?
From one short conversation at a Heaton House Farm event where you discussed your own proposal we loved your character and enthusiasm. We knew instantly you would bring this to the video and be able to bring our special day back to life in the best manner. The interviews of course were just a genius bonus!
Tell us about the proposal?
It was a standard Friday (as far as Chrissie was concerned) and as per usual Chrissie was late leaving work. I had planned the day all out, having the ring delivered by Amy and having our new sofas delivered as a surprise. I did not account for Chrissie being one and half hours late Coming home. Having paced the floor for all this time and not eating anything, she eventually arrived home and kept me waiting even longer while she finished her phone call. She did however notice something odd. I was in my best shirt! And there were the logos Of my parents dancing school where she trained growing up and at the swimming club where we swam together.
She came to the door and the tears instantly began (both of us)
The boodles pink ribbon created a time line of our time together from the menu of our first date, to pictures all up the walls of days out, to the match day ticket of when I asked her dad. This took us to the bedroom where some of her favourite things were placed, then I stopped to one knee and could only get out the words “well will you”. She did say yes and I re enacted since.
The sofa was no longer an important part of the surprise but was a great place to chat about the build up.
What experience do you want to give to your guests?
A relaxed environment where they could enjoy the venue and each other’s company so we could see smiling faces.
Danielle and Lee invited us to capture their lovely Autumn wedding at Stanley House and here is a snapshot of their BIG DAY.
Mr & Mrs Fawcett are BIG dog lovers and this was present all through the day. As you can see in the video, Dexter delivered the rings during the ceremony, paws all over the cake and a lovely tribute to Harley who recently passed away.
We were also joined by Tim Emmerton Photography (one of our faves)
Congratulations Dan & Lee x
Danielle & Lee sent us this shortly after watching their feature film
Lisa and Roland,
Thank you both. We have just had a movie night and relived such a special day! Dexter was excited to see himself in tv and you captured so much of the day I completely forgotten. We have laughed, cried and cringed, so beautiful.
Ps you and Tim Emmerton are a team!
Dan Lee and Dexter
After 1 meeting in a coffee shop in Bolton, we knew right then that this wedding was gonna be a whole lot of fun!
We had a very early start jumping between Thornton Manor & Thornton Hall with Andy Keher during the Bridal & Groom preparations, Qube Events put their final touches to the ceremony area whilst Piano Daisy had a little practice with one of Rosie’s Bridesmaids.
Sunshine & Planes filled the sky after the ceremony and after an extremely competitive ‘Throwing of the Bouquet’ everyone headed inside for a mad party thanks to the guys at Six15 Events.
Such a great way to end the summer, thanks for inviting us Mr & Mrs C x
