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.

We don’t often make many posts which involve our personal life, but since it is such a big part of us we thought what better way to show a few photos of our travels last year.

Note: We are not photographers and never make any claims to be. However we do love to take pretty pictures every now and then.

Dubrovnik

Croatia has always been a place we have wanted to visit and the fresh air and purest blue seas were great for bringing to the kids. We travelled to many of the different islands, enjoyed visits to the old town, ate lots of frozen yogurt, and Anoushka also developed a very expensive taste for seafood.

Centre Parcs

Definitely one for the kid in all of us. A last minute decision to enjoy the woodlands and spend hours at the swimming area. There was gorgeous light. We took lots of photos. Only showing a few here;)

Budapest

Andrea really wanted to spend time at the Christmas markets, so with the Manchester markets so close to home we opted to fly over to Hungry’s capital and enjoy how it’s done in a different city. It was massive. And beautiful.

Ceremony & Reception: Villa Ephrussi De Rothschild, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Nice, France

I have to admit having a bit of a love affair with filming destination weddings. It all began when we filmed the wedding of Vita {+} Neil who happen to be friends of Jil {+} Will!
Starting the day at the Grand-Hotel Du Cap Ferrat, Jil looked radiant in her beautiful Oscar de la Renta dress. When she stepped into it she was grinning from ear to ear. Will is such a lucky guy!

The wedding ceremony and reception was held at Villa Ephrussi De Rothschild. A stunning location for the occasion, and one which I was fortunate to be joined by AJ and Oli of Foxley Photography. You can see their version of the day over here and be sure to mention ‘CAKE’ every now and then. Just because cake matters to them;)

Jil and Will, thank you for inviting me to film your wonderful French wedding.

This is amazing! I was trying to think of cake pun but comparing this to my favourite cakes, Parkin and Victoria Sponge just felt a bit insulting! ;-) Its a multi-layered flavour sensation, top work!

These two lovely people are amazing. However they have a peculiar idea of dimensions as when they first enquired they described their wedding as being a small English garden wedding. There was nothing small about this venue!

Ceremony & Reception: Hadley Common, Barnet, London

We have to give a big thank you to the ladies at Pocketful of Dreams for designing the shindig and for the magical hair of Chris Barber. Great to see them all again after so long.

Tabitha and Spencer are now off on a big adventure to Boston so we wish them all the very best in their new life together as husband and wife.
