Claridges wedding film | Kristina & Will

Creating a Claridges wedding film has been one of our dreams for a while, so when Kristina and Will got in touch and wanted us to film their wedding at Claridges, we completely jumped at the chance. It was made even better by them both being absolutely amazing people.


Marriage & Reception: Claridges Hotel, Brook Street, Mayfair, London

Kristina welcomed us in the morning with a warm smile, and made us feel right at home. Their wedding photographer Louise Abdy and I captured and gushed over her beautiful bespoke wedding dress by Stephanie Allin and her stunning Manolo Blahnik shoes whilst Kristina, her mum and bridesmaids were preparing for the day with stunning hair and make up by the fantastic  ladies from InParlour.

Then it was time to head off to the wonderfully atmospheric St Paul’s church in Knightsbridge which was perfectly complimented by all of the elegant flower arrangements by Karen Woolven and the gentle glow of candlelight down the aisle from the lanterns provided by the church. After a beautiful service, we all jumped onto a couple of buses and were whisked away to the fabulous venue where we would conclude our Claridges wedding film. The careful attention to detail, exquisite catering and courteous staff made the venue even more special for the day, and the photo booth by Boothnation ensured all Kristina and Will’s guests made even more fun, special and rather hilarious memories for their guest book. Once all the food was consumed and all the wine drunk for the meal, it was on to cutting the beautifully crafted cake by Ceri Olofson for Fortnum and Mason before the  amazing Earthlights Boogie Band ensured everyone was on their feet and enjoying a good ol boogie!

Kristina and Will, we had such a fantastic time being a part of your very special wedding day, it was truly a privilege. Congratulations to you both, and may we wish you a lifetime of happiness together!

Rudding Park wedding film | Louise & Alan

Creating a Rudding Park wedding film is always a joy, the grounds are lovely and the interior is nice and light. The fact that Louise and Alan’s wedding was our first of 2014 made this one extra special.


Marriage & Reception: Rudding Park, Follifoot, Harrogate, North Yorkshire

We had previously met these guys at the wedding of Natasha and James so we knew what a fun couple they were, and we had an inkling as to the design of the day. When we met Louise in the morning, she was busy applying everyone’s make up, something you would imagine a bride-to-be would steer clear of on her wedding day! This kind of summed Louise up though – always thinking of others even when the attention was on herself. When it came to get ready Louise looked absolutely stunning in her silk Jenny Packham wedding dress. She seemed made for it!

After the ceremony we had some glorious winter golden light to play with. Along with us for the ride was Joanne Kelly and her assistant Nikki on photographer duties – so nice to work with.

When we next have the opportunity to create a Rudding Park wedding film, it has some big shoes to fill.

Wedding film at Buxted Park | Caroline & Andrew

What began as a cold cold winter day blossomed as the skies cleared for Caroline and Andrew’s wedding film at Buxted Park.


Marriage & Reception: Buxted Park Hotel, Buxted, Uckfield, East Sussex

As the ceremony and reception were all on the same location, we were able to concentrate on our couple. This was great as there was zero pressure in worrying about travel times. This left a very chilled and happy bride in Caroline. We had the perfect room to film Caroline during her morning preparations, a lovely big room with some great natural light – perfect.

Looking beautiful in her Maggie Sottero dress, Caroline was every inch the beaming bride and watching her smile as she walked down the aisle was a thing to behold. The sun even came out to play just when fab photographer Paul Rogers and I needed it to. Call it luck or fate, we didn’t care and it helped to create a wedding film at Buxted Park to remember.

Wedding film at Peckforton Castle | Victoria & Fouad

All the way from their Hong Kong abode to show their wedding film at Peckforton Castle, let us introduce you to Victoria and Fouad.


Marriage & Reception: Peckforton Castle, Stone House Ln, Peckforton, Tarporley, Cheshire

These two fun lovin’ kids were so cool to hang around with on their wedding day. The morning started with Fouad getting ready at the Macdonald Portal golf and Spa Hotel along with his best men and ushers. It was a time of good banter and male bonding. Meanwhile, Victoria was busy getting ready inside Peckforton Castle along with her three bridesmaids. This was a time of serenity (mixed with outbreaks of madcap comedy from Victoria). We love these opposing scenarios during the morning preparation – it what makes it our favourite part of the day. Victoria looked stunning in her Enzoani wedding dress. Absolutely stunning.

During their civil ceremony we were treated to the Peckforton Castle display of an owl delivering the rings. Something Victoria found hilarious. Later on Fouad was treated to a falcon eating from his (gloved) hands. Something many of us guys wished we could do at one point in our lives.

For their wedding film at Peckforton Castle it was great to finally be able to work alongside our friend Liam of CG Weddings by The Crawleys – wedding photographers whom we have admired for a long time.

Awesome couple. Awesome day. Fact.

  • David J. - January 15, 2014 - 4:34 pm

    This storybook wedding had everything you could imagine in a Disney film – a mysterious prince, beautiful English princess, falcons, castles, swords, people big and small from the far corners of the Earth, silly accents, Range Rovers, family, love, friendship, charm, storming the castle, laughs, tears, singing candles. Wish I could relive this day every day of my life. Love you guys
