A couple of weeks ago we were lucky enough to be invited to create a wedding film at Rowton Castle by Charlotte and Gareth. How have I never been to this place before? It’s amazing!

Ceremony: Holy Trinity Meole Brace, Church Road, Meole Brace, Shrewsbury
Reception: Rowton Castle, Halfway House, Shrewsbury, Shropshire

We started the morning on a gloriously sunny occasion in Shrewsbury, where the atmosphere was calm and enjoyable. Charlotte looked absolutely radiant in her wedding dress and was smiling from ear to ear. After their lovely ceremony at Holy Trinity Meole Brace, we headed over to Rowton Castle for some fun in the sun. One of the things which make a wedding is the friends and family which surround the couple, and with Charlotte and Gareth, their friends made a massively lovely day that much more enjoyable.

One of the other things which make the day great is the quality of the vendors, so when Charlotte and Gareth chose Brett Symes as their photographer, they made a fantastic choice. We can’t wait to see the images when they are blogged!

It felt great to create this wedding film at Rowton Castle. We hope to come again one day.

Katharine and Judd had their cool wedding at MC Motors in London. We got to film it. It was immense.

Ceremony & Reception: MC Motors, 28 Millers Avenue, Dalston, London

When we first had contact with Katharine it was through an accidental cc from her friend. It left me privy to information which was very complimentary and a little bit silly (just the way we like it). Thankfully that friend was the wonderful Jen – one of our favourite ever brides. Katharine swiftly booked us and told us about her day – clearly Jen would have some competition for our wedding affection!

First off, look how stylish these two are. Katharine with her Suzanne Neville dress and Judd with his Victor Valentine equivalent looking effortlessly cool. For such a lovely couple, it is unsurprising that they have such wonderful family and friends willing to help them out with the day. Guys such as the DJ, bar staff, catering, wedding co-ordinator and wedding stationary creator were all on hand to lend a…er…hand with their skills and enthusiasm. Such is the joy in their infectious personalities that they have also made a friend for life in the humanist celebrant  Zena Birch (if you happen to chat to Zena you will understand why). We also do love a good choir, so when the guys at Mike King Collective (one of whom was Zoe, a close friend of Zena’s), started to sing, it was (literally) music to our ears.

After Katharine and Judd said their vows to each other we proceeded to the party. These guys do love a good party, and by the end of the night Ryan Gosling was on the dancefloor getting in on the action. I would make a joke about Mr Gosling being more animated than he was in all of Only God Forgives, but I have to admit to having a bit of a man crush on the Gos – so I won’t (although I kinda just did). We also had the the painfully gorgeous girls from In Your Dreams, Oli and Ro on standby for creating a series of embellishments for all the guests – and we do mean ALL. Even ourselves and the wonderful the wonderful and kooky photographer Ellie Gillard joined in on the action.

We had fun. We took a pic for proof. Such a cool wedding at MC Motors!

Such an amazing video, natural, emotional, beautiful, I was lucky enough to be there with my partner Simon and you’ve really done the day and venue justice, looking forward to the feature length extravaganza!

As a kid growing up, I always enjoyed popping out to the local village to take part in a fête, so when Jo and Rob said they would be hosting a village fête themed wedding down in Sussex it left me with a massive grin on my face.

Ceremony: St Peter Ad Vincula, Wisborough Green, West Sussex
Reception: Duncton Mill Trout Fishery, Dye House Lane, Duncton, West Sussex

Helped in the morning by Toni Todd on hair and make-up, Jo looked stunning in her Maggie Sottero dress. After getting married at the church, it was off for some fun and games at their village fête themed wedding. We had the traditional bouncy castle supplied by Bounce Mania and a whole collection of other activities. These included ‘milk the cow’ (I still have no idea what this was!) ‘beat the buzzer’, ‘the strongman’, and a welly throwing competition. This wedding was enormous fun and we continue to wish Jo and Rob the very best for their future together.

Ah thank you Aaron – you really captured the fun and magic. To say we are thrilled with the film is an understatement, something we will treasure forever.

Lovely lovely lovely

Creating this Hodsock Priory wedding film for Samantha and Wesley was such a joy and it meant that I was so lucky to be able to witness the Spitfire. Everyone needs a Spitfire to perform a routine at their wedding! A childhood wish come true :)

Ceremony: Blyth Church, Blyth, Nottinghamshire
Reception: Hodsock Priory, Blyth, Worksop

Even though the day ended so nicely, it didn’t initially look that this would be the case. It rained all morning. It rained again. And it rained some more. Then when the ceremony ended, the sun got rather annoyed at the rain and pushed it out of the way. We like Mr Sun’s style.

Adding some colour to the day was Flowers by Kay who provided an amazing arrangement for Samantha and her bridesmaids, and great to see Chris Chambers taking photography duties for the day. Once Samantha got into her Maggie Sottero wedding dress she looked every inch the radiant bride. Totally gorgeous. Meanwhile Wesley spent his morning having a very stylish old school haircut by their friend at The Gentlemans Retreat.

The day ended in a mixture of love, laughter and fun all round. We hope you enjoy this Hodsock Priory wedding film made especially for Samantha and Wesley.
