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.

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
