Mr & Mrs Goadby | All Saints Church Wedding

All Saints Church

Our latest wedding film was that of Tia and Adam, who had a lovely wedding at All Saints Church on the 16th July. The day began with hair and makeup for the bride and her party.

Sarah Newton got to work on Tia, and Hair by Jamie was also on hand for the bridesmaids’ hair do’s. The colour scheme of red and white shone through everywhere you looked! Tia’s wedding gown was embellished with red floral appliqué across the top and accenting the sides and the train. Her bridesmaid’s wore complementing red gowns – all from Berketex Brides.

Red ribbons adorned the BRF classic car that took the nervous bride to her new husband.  Her bouquet was a stunning cascade of red and white roses (from New World Florist). The bold colours weren’t the only theme of the wedding, their love of travel was incorporated too. Aeroplane table confetti and a suitcase for wedding cards were all subtle touches to suit the theme. Much of the stationary was handmade and personalised by the bride and groom themselves.

Next up was the ceremony at the church! Adam and his groomsmen also looked the part in their formal attire, from Farley’s Suit Hire. The wedding was beautiful, with words from friends and a family friend also singing at the church – well done Georgina!

With champagne flowing, confetti flying and the clouds parting, it was time to head to the reception, held at the wonderfully scenic Hothorpe Hall. Guests and family mingled once they arrived at the venue and a fair few of them took delight in the charming addition of The Wedding Artist – a caricaturist the couple invited to entertain their loved ones in the afternoon.

The bride, the groom and the best man all made speeches at the wedding breakfast. There were many laughs and many tears! The matching decor in the Hall really added to the atmosphere and the band from 2Close Entertainment performing in front of the wall of stars was out of this world. This was the perfect setting for the new Mr & Mrs Goadby to cut their gorgeous travel themed cake courtesy of family friend Penny!

And after all the food and speeches, the floor was cleared and the evening party could really get going! Naturally, the bride has to dance with her father but of course, we can’t forget the first dance. Tia and Adam looked like the perfect couple as they got onto the dance floor for the first time as newlyweds.

Huge thanks to Tia and Adam for inviting us to capture their wedding on film. It was a pleasure to be a part of your day. We wish you a life time of happiness together!

Tia and Adam had this to say about the wedding highlight:

“Thank you so much for the link! Video is epic we love it and good choice with the song! Not one we’ve heard before but we like it!”

Mr & Mrs Barwell | Rearsby Church Wedding

Rearsby Church

For our latest venture we were at a gorgeous Rearsby Church wedding for the lovely Stephanie and Michael. The couple tied the knot on the 25th June and we were there to capture it all!

The morning was very busy and the house was packed full of Stephanie, her family and bridal party preparing for the day. Hairspray, nail polish and brushes covered every surface as they got glamorous for the special occasion. The blushing bride now had to get laced up into her bejewelled, lace gown. Her father couldn’t have looked prouder as they got in the vintage car to head to Rearsby Church.

Meanwhile Michael and his groomsmen spent the morning suiting up as well. They also looked dapper in their blue suits as they piled into the white Lincoln town car to take them to the ceremony.

The church was decorated beautifully with subtle bows to compliment the pink and white colour scheme for the wedding. The ceremony was beautifully, with a lot of laughs and even some tears from friends and family. After they officially became husband and wife, it was time to head out into the amazing sunshine. This could also easily be the most wedding confetti we’ve ever seen!

Another unique touch we haven’t come across before was the ice cream! And what a day for it, the guests couldn’t have loved it more, especially the kids!

Barn at Manor Farm in Leicestershire was the reception location. The venue hosted a rustic farm themed affair, with hessian chair decorations and table covers as well as jam jars with miniature gypsophila bouquets and fairy lights to boot.

Instead of a sit down wedding breakfast, the Barwells had opted for a hog roast and BBQ. The speeches went down great and the wedding cake was cut soon after (and Michael too, almost!). Stephanie clearly wasn’t letting any wedding stress get to her. She even managed to have a splash around in her wellies.

Finally, the last little bit to celebrate becoming husband and wife was the first dance as newlyweds. Stephanie and Michael could not have looked happier as they twirled on the floor!

We’d like to say a huge thank you to the happy couple for having us. We really enjoyed the day and loved all the unique things that made the day perfectly ‘you’.

Mr & Mrs King | Sketchley Grange Hotel Wedding

Sketchley Grange Hotel

Chelsie and Ryan’s wedding day took place at St Mary’s Church and the beautiful Sketchley Grange Hotel. The morning of June 18th began with busy hair and make up prep for the bridal party. A few of the bridesmaids were younger so there was a lot of energy in the house! Balloons flying, bright pink … Read more

Mr & Mrs Bradbury Cox | St Giles Church Wedding

St Giles Church

Sophie and Nathan had a beautiful ceremony on 28th May at St Giles Church. This was easily the most colourful theme we’ve ever witnessed! Bridal prep began in the morning for Sophie and her “bride’s squad”. The hair and makeup was in full swing while the girls were sipping on some bubbly. The colourful touches were apparent early on, bridemaids wore a perfect set of floor length one-shoulder gowns, each in a different colour of the rainbow. They also all carried a gorgeous bunch of oversized daisies in a sunrise themed palette.

The beautiful bride herself stood out in the spectrum of colours in a pure white dress with lace sleeves. She’s kept a touch of the rainbow though, with a stunning rainbow rose bouquet.

After an emotional moment of Sophie’s father seeing her for the first time, it was into car and the vintage VW campervan and off to St Giles Church. The groomsmen and Nathan also wore the colour scheme brilliantly, with rainbow rose boutonnieres to match the bride’s bouquet. Their ties also matched to the bridesmaid’s dresses and the dark blue suits enhanced the vibrant feel.

At the church, with all the guests ready, three sweet flower girls took to the aisle, followed by the bridesmaids. Then Sophie’s turn was next – she absolutely could not hold back tears when Nathan saw her coming down the aisle. We don’t think there was a dry eye in the whole room!

Musicians played and hymns were sung and soon enough… Sophie and Nathan became Mr & Mrs Bradbury-Cox!!

The sun shone almost as beautifully as the bride herself as everyone headed out to celebrate with the newlyweds.

The next stop was Barton Hall for their reception. There was live entertainment and plenty of mingling while the dinner was being prepared and the rainbow bunting was a lovely touch to the room. Leicester City had also not long won the Champions League so there was an ode to them in the form of flags and clappers just before the speeches. By the time speeches came about, the pressure was mostly off and the happy couple were looking relaxed and smiley.

The final wedding day traditions are usually the cake cutting and the first dance and Mr & Mrs Bradbury Cox opted for a first song. Though in a bit of a twist on tradition, they sang, rather than danced! Sophie and Nathan chose Disney’s Frozen soundtrack song Love Is An Open Door to sing in their new lives together.

Congratulations to the amazing couple, thank you for having us at your wedding. It was an honour to film and we all hope that you have a life together as beautiful and colourful as your wedding day!

Mr and Mrs Sirovica | Serbian Orthodox Wedding

Serbian Orthodox

There is so much to say about this amazing Serbian Orthodox wedding!

Daniella and Dimitrije are just a match made in heaven! Our morning began with wedding prep, Daniella had a lovely few hours of getting make up and hair done. She also had family and the bridal party with her while she opened her wedding gifts.

The Serbian traditions were amazing to witness and the way the proceedings went was very different to the weddings we are used to.

For example, we are used to seeing the guests gather at the ceremony venue and wait for the bride there. The family and friends at this wedding all went to the grooms house at first. Pre-ceremony shots and traditional music were on the cards for the groom as he chatted with family and guests. After that the procession made their way to the bride’s house.

There is also an old practice in which the “Buying of the Bride” takes place. Now, this is only done for fun these days, to calm the nerves we suppose! So the groom ‘buys’ the bride from her brother. We love that the tradition and culture is kept alive!

Dmitrije waited patiently outside with the guests as his bride was bought outside to him! It was lovely to have a bride and groom see each other before the ceremony, it’s so rare we get to see that!

Then it was time for the ceremony at the Serbian Orthodox Church in Leicester’s cultural quarter. It was beautiful and incredibly traditional – with the joining of the right hands, the crowns and a lot of singing.

Mr & Mrs Sirovica left the church in a stunning open top classic car and headed to their reception, where a cake and plenty of dancing awaited!

Congratulations to the happy couple, thank you so much for having us. It was a pleasure to capture your unique day on film. We hope you have a long, happy life together as husband and wife!

Mr & Mrs Sharpe | Normanton Church Wedding

Normanton Church

Normanton Church at Rutland Water was the latest location for a beautiful wedding. Our lovely couple was Mel and Tim. Or Mr & Mrs Sharpe as they are now known! As wedding season is drawing to a close we love to make the most of the days we film and this location was a treat to be at.

The first guests began arriving and we managed to film a nervous looking groom taking a moment before the ceremony. The groomsmen were all in blue suits with salmon ties and pocket hankies, and gorgeous peach rose corsages. The bridesmaids were perfectly matched in their diamante detailed maxi dresses. The bouquets all matched, even the flower girl’s headband!

The ceremony took place at the Far End of the Church so Mel got to enjoy the long walk down the aisle! Naturally it was an emotional one for everyone in the room, but all the tears were happy ones!

The new Mr & Mrs Sharpe opted for more bubbles than confetti too! All the friends and family enjoyed some time together outside taking photos and mingling. The groom and his best man enjoyed a cigar or two while the ladies sipped their wine and enjoyed the day.

Speeches were equally heartwarming and hilarious. The cake was a stunning 4 tier fairytale inspired work of art. There was a Disney castle silhouette and the words everyone wants to hear on their wedding day – “and they lived happily ever after”!

To Mr & Mrs Sharpe – we truly hope you do!

Mr & Mrs Cripps | Rothley Church Wedding

Rothley Church

Lee and Kaye had set their wedding date for the 2nd August 2014 and we were there to film it all! As our third wedding video at Forget Me Knot, this was really exciting for us. Our first was a tester and our second was that of Matt & Amy, founders of the company! This was a great chance for us to start being really creative with what we do!

Luckily for us, Kaye’s bridal party was full of energy during preparations in the morning. Once all the hair and make up was done, we took advantage of the cute garden scenery to film the bride and her bridesmaids having the time of their lives! They honestly looked like something from a music video when dancing under the shelter in the pouring rain. Kaye definitely got the chance to get a lot of use from her stunning wedding gown!

Lee didn’t disappoint either, he and his groomsmen were relaxed and light hearted (at least, on the surface!) for the morning’s final prep! They were also more than happy to get their boogie on!

Their ceremony took place at Rothley Church and was, of course, full of joy and hymns and cheers as they became husband and wife! The weather was kind too, with the sun shining down as family and guests posed for pictures. Next up was a champagne filled car ride to the reception were more mingling and drinks were on the cards.

The speeches were heartfelt and humorous and it was clear throughout the day that this was a couple meant for each other! In the words of the groom – “when you know, you know.”

Finally, it was time for the last few wedding day traditions – first dance and cutting the cake. Surrounded by adoring guests and even more dancing, the live band played on through the night. This was definitely a night to remember for the happy couple!

The Happy Couple

We love hearing feedback from couples, and when we sent The Cripps their highlight video, this is what they had to say!

“Oh wow wow wow!!!!!! We LOVE it!!! It’s perfect! We love the song as well and we would love you to use it on the full length & we don’t mind which one it replaces? As your the experts use what ever fits? Thanks again you really have captured the emotion and ‘energy’ of the day.. I will Definitely be recommending you to all my brides!!!”

Thanks again to Lee and Kaye, it was a total pleasure.

Mr & Mrs Goode | Normanton Church Wedding

Normanton Church

Mr & Mrs Goode’s wedding at Normanton Church was our first ever wedding video! We were incredibly excited to begin our new venture into wedding films.

The wedding took place on March 29th 2014 at the beautiful Rutland water. We started with bridal prep at the location and groom prep too. We spent the morning with everyone getting ready for the special occasion and captured footage of the excitement and nerves in abundance!

Their ceremony was held in Normanton Church and they had arranged a great mode of transport for groomsmen and family – a wedding bus! The happy couple were blessed with gorgeous sunshine for the whole day! We managed to take advantage of the stunning location and get some lovely memories on film.

The wedding bus then took the couple and close family to the reception, where everyone got to enjoy some food! And of course, some funny speeches! The Goode’s also had great entertainment in the form of a live band. First dances are always a blur, so we thought it was important to capture that for the newlywed’s.

As the night went on and the party continued, we were really grateful to have spent a “Goode Day” filming! For our first ever venture, we are incredibly proud of what we’ve put together for Barry & Beth and we wish them a lifetime of happiness together!
