Have you ever met a couple who fell in love while killing zombies? Lauren and Steve did, and they cemented that love when they had their wedding in North Berwick.

Ok, perhaps I have to explain. While the zombie apocalypse hasn’t happened just yet, it was while sharing a house and playing on the PS3 that Lauren and Steve bonded over destroying an undead horde. It’s just my kinda romance.

The whole day had multiple different aspects of their personalities intertwined throughout. From the various cameras scattered (Steve’s job) to the inclusion of fire as a theme (sharing romantic bonfire evenings together). This was accentuated by the music performed by their band Mister Kanish which we just had to use at the start of their film. Any zombie game aficionados out there will have noted the other music choice as well.

North Berwick was such a beautiful place to hold their wedding which enabled Lauren to return to the place of her birth and it left an unforgettable memory of the entire day. I’m willing to bet there hasn’t been a wedding in North Berwick like it.

We can never complain about our job. It takes us to wonderful places and we get to meet wonderful people. This Cas Xorc wedding in Mallorca was something else!

Ceremony & Reception: Cas Xorc, Sóller, Illes Balears, Spain

We always love to know a bit about our couples and why they choose to get married where the do. Since our groom Michael was born on the magical island of Mallorca, it made perfect sense for he and his gorgeous wife Sarah to host their special day there in front of their nearest and dearest.

One thing you are pretty much guaranteed in Mallorca is sun. Lots of sun. However it didn’t go quite to plan in the morning of the wedding our our couples looked anxiously out the window to see dark clouds hovering menacingly overhead. However, once we prepared for the ceremony the sun showed it’s head and we were in for a glorious bright and fun evening. The evening itself was such a fun occasion with the wedding band making sure everyone was off having fun on the dance floor. Clearly having Cas Xorc wedding in Mallorca means that you get such a cool wedding with party-loving people.

Let’s do it all again!

Bex + Ryan = Awesome.

Ceremony: Church of St. Mary the Virgin, The Street, Frensham, Surrey
Reception: Bury Court Barn, Bentley, Surrey,

Bex and Ryan wanted their Bury Court Barn wedding film to be about their family and friends. In fact, family is a key word here as the two of them shared the day with their two children. A double reason for the day being a celebration was that along with getting married, Bex also celebrated her birthday. Although truth be told, I’m not 100% sure that this wasn’t a genius ploy by Ryan to never forget the date! 

We do love filming down in Surrey as the surroundings feel so beautiful and tranquil. So it was great when our old buddy (and super lovely photographer) Guy Collier passed along our details to be and Ryan about having us film their day. The saw what they liked, and booked. Fast forward a year and here we are.

Growing up in Bath, I used to love watching the rugby at the Rec and little did I know that Ryan was a Scotland international who played for the title winning Glasgow Warriors. Ryan apparently also likes to don up in fancy dress, but that’s a story for another day. 

The service at St. Mary’s was also very special to the couple as it was ministered by Bex’s grandfather. From there on we ventured off to one of our favourite venues, Bury Court Barn and later on we drooled at the selection of beef and lamb being cooked on the BBQ arranged by Jacaranda. Just thinking about it, I could totally go for a BBQ right about now.

Bex + Ryan = Enjoy.

Two of the sweetest people you are ever likely to meet had their wedding at St. Paul’s Cathedral. It was amazing. Come have a look.

Ceremony: St Pauls Cathedral, OBE Chapel, London
Reception: The Athenaeum Club, Pall Mall, London

There are weddings where everything is simply amazing. The couple, the guests, the venues, the weather and the vendors. Every single one of these things occurred at Alison and Craig’s day.

Starting in the morning at The Athenaeum Club, Alison looked absolutely stunning in her Maggie Sottero wedding dress, while her beautiful bridesmaids donned their own attire created by Alison’s extremely talented mother. Alison is such a sweet natured and kind person and it was such a joy to see her smiling through the morning (and throughout the day – obviously). Helping the bride out in the morning were Katy Angelidi and Cassandra Rizzuto who were so lovely on make up and hair – pleasure to work with you.

Over on the groom’s side we were almost treated to a veritable comedy routine from Craig who is just one of the funniest people you are likely to come across, as well as a really really really nice guy. I have to admit that it was a bit cramped in the hotel room, and I was a bit envious of the massive room the ladies had in their preparation – but it did make you think outside of the box in being creative with the available space – and I do enjoy a challenge. With us through the day were the lovely Earthy Photography. We have been trying to work together for a few years now, so it was great to finally have the opportunity to see them in action. Mark and Marianne are two lovely people and we hope to work together again soon.

With prep done, we were off to the wedding at St. Paul’s Cathedral – what a magnificent place. Only certain people are lucky enough to be married there and as Alison’s father is an OBE, that was their golden ticket. Speaking of Alison’s parents, they performed the best rendition of ‘The Lord bless you and keep you’ that I have ever heard – the hairs on the back of our necks stood right up.

The reception was now in full party mood and what better way to end the celebrations with a Ceilidh performed by the wonderful The Ceilidh Factor – a band so good that Andrea and I joined in at the end.

Such a wonderful wedding.

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.
