Mr & Mrs Bott | Stapleford Park Wedding Film

The incredibly gorgeous Amy and Elliott tied the knot on 30th June 2018, in a church ceremony, celebrating their marriage at the stunning Stapleford park. 

I personally love a theme, and the theme with this couple’s big day was elegance, it ran right through this day from the bridal preparations right through to the first dance. The bride looked completely at ease on the morning, as she sat clinking glasses with her bridesmaids all looking fabulous in their satin robes, they even had some time outside all for the benefit of the photography and of course us! 

 Amy’s hair and make up was completely stunning and her look was topped off with the most beautiful hair band made up of beading and crystals, and of course the dress, oh the dress! A sleeved lace princess gown, with plunge neckline complimented with a classic veil. Some beautiful moments were captured of Amy and her dad as she helped him with his cufflinks, he looked so proud of his girl. The bridesmaids looked so beautiful in floor length black satin dresses, as they accompanied Amy on her walk to the church, all holding bouquets of pure white flowers in the sunshine. 

Elliott and his groomsmen matched the bridal party with the black and white styling, and all looked ready for the bridal party’s big entrance. Amy and Elliott spoke their vows in front of a church full of their family and friends, and it really was magical, the tradition of the bride’s veil being lifted to unveil her face is a rare one these days, so that was a beautiful moment.  

The couple travelled in style in a white car onto the grounds of Stapleford park, with not a cloud insight, the bright blue sky and the hot sun made everything that much sweeter! Stapleford suited the newlyweds perfectly as they walked through the buildings and the grounds outside, it is always lovely to work alongside photographers to capture these special moments of reflection, of the day so far. 

Inside, the room was styled with white flowers not just on the table in tall arrangements but a wall of beautiful fresh flowers acting as a back drop to the top table. Elliott spoke so many beautiful words about his Bride during his speech and with all the romantic dancing on the sparkling dance floor throughout the night, it was clear to see this couple have a long and happy future ahead of them. 

We wish Mr and Mrs Bott all the very best x 

Mr & Mrs Edmands | Mythe Barn Wedding Film

The first of our 2018 weddings took us back to one of our favourite venues, Mythe Barn, on the 16th March 2018. We captured a beautiful family come together as the last piece of their puzzle was placed.  

The day began with Charlotte meeting with her dad as he gave her the most beautiful gift and what an emotional moment to capture on film. Bridal preparations were underway with a very excitable bridal party as hair and makeup duties began. Charlotte and her girls were so laid back and fun, they just took it all in their stride. Bridesmaids wore full length lilac dresses in different styles, and all waited anxiously to see what the Bride looked like. Charlotte stood in a room ready for her first looks, each bridesmaid and the mother of the bride were completely blown away by how stunning the Bride was. Last but not least, Charlottes Dad entered the room, and it was clear to see he was proud as punch! Charlotte wore a stunning sparkling lace dress with beading draping her back, with a huge bouquet of white flowers to compliment her look. Meanwhile the boys enjoyed a spot of football outside, whilst the men got their sharp suits and bow ties in place. The groom was visibly touched by the gifts from his wife to be. I actually really like this new tradition and it certainly sets the romantic tone for marriage. 

The styling had a rustic feel with crates and flowers complimenting the venue perfectly, Charlotte and Nik said their I do’s with the help of their little boy as ring bearer, and confetti showered them as they walked down the aisle hand in hand, smiles beaming! We captured the most beautiful intimate footage of these two love birds, as they walked the grounds at Mythe barn. I know having spoken to Charlotte, how long she had waited for their day to come and by the look of her, it was a dream come true, to marry her one.  

Inside, again the room was perfectly styled with gorgeous flowers, greenery, rustic detailing and family photographs, keeping those lost a part of their day. With the wedding breakfast a delight, it was onto the speeches, and they didn’t disappoint! There were tears! To date, the most heart-warming, Father of the Bride speech I’ve heard, just what Charlotte and Nik deserved to start the journey together.  

Well…what a party!! The planning of Charlotte and Niks’s reception, suited their personalities spot on! A fun band, suited and booted, got guests to their feet, whilst others checked out the magic mirror for some funny photos to take home. Another thing we’ve not had the pleasure of seeing before, but certainly want to see again, was glitter art! I’m still wondering if a certain bearded guest actually managed to get rid of all that glitter?! Either way, guests of all ages enjoyed it and of course it looked amazing on camera. As drinks flowed and everyone worked up an appetite, Mythe Barn showed us why they are such an amazing wedding venue. They have a pizza oven! What was not to love about this wedding? We are completely honoured we documented their memories to keep. 

We wish Charlotte and Nik, and their family, the very best in the future together x 

Mr & Mrs Burton

Love birds, Emily and Ben, were married at Ratcliffe College, and celebrated in style at Bawdon Lodge farm on the 2nd September 2017. 

This gorgeous bride oozed happiness, her smile got bigger by the second, and how can I not mention her beautiful dimples!  A complete natural in front of the camera and enjoyed every second; with not a nervous look in sight. The morning preparations began at Emily’s mums’ house where she was joined by family and her bridal party. All dressed in amazing floral, satin robes they looked nothing but radiant, as they had hair pinned up and make up applied. It was a beautifully intimate morning of pre wedding drinks, sharing gifts with one another, and making memories. The floral theme continued as the Bridesmaids swapped their dressing gowns for floral dresses, all hung up on handmade, personalized wooden hangers. The bride looked beautiful in a sweetheart fishtail, lace gown, complimented with fresh flowers pinned in her long loose curls. The Groom and groomsmen waited patiently for the Bride, who was walked down the aisle by her very proud brother, and the couple were made Husband and Wife, in Emily’s old school, how cool is that?!   

Arriving at a farm is one thing but arriving at a farm with the celebrations taking place in a huge double tipi is another! This venue was amazing, styled with a rustic feel bringing the outdoors in, with the personal touch with photographs of them both on their journey leading up to that day. A saxophonist played as guests were welcomed inside to be seated, whilst the happy couple took some time in the sunny countryside to take it all in. 

The best man got creative with the speeches by using a projector to get their laughs as well as sharing a special dance with the Groom, and Emily’s big brother, spoke from the heart as he reminisced about Emily as a girl. The evening turned to a foodies dream, with marshmallows toasting on the open fire pits, and a burger van, which were de-lish! 

All full of food and love, with the drinks flowing, this wedding party was ready to dance the night away, and that’s exactly what they did! 

We wish Emily and Ben all the very best in their future together x  

Mr & Mrs Taylor

Fiona and Andy, were married and celebrated at the Bentley Brook Inn on the 26th August 2017. What an absolute beauty of a day this was! Not just because this was a day where two people came together in marriage, but also because a whole family of all those loved by the couple, could literally have a day they couldn’t forget. Bias, yes, but we are so glad they chose to have all the action and memories made; caught on camera! 

Fiona really was the most relaxed Bride, she enjoyed some drinks and a chat whilst she had her hair curled and plaited and make up applied, alongside her bridesmaids who slipped on the most beautiful sequinned gold dresses. Then it was the Brides turn to put on her sweetheart gown adorned with diamanté detail, complimented with sparkling statement jewellery. The Groom and his groomsmen, where quick to put on their navy-blue suits, and so enjoyed a pre wedding get together, to admire what they had to look forward to later in the sunshine! Once the couple were ready for their big moment, both exchanged vows in an intimate ceremony, made even more special by the fact they had hired a beautiful singer Alice, to entertain guests whilst the newlyweds made it official, with the signing of the register. The wedding breakfast was beautifully dressed, with unique themed table names, and a table absolutely jam packed with goodies! The speeches were a complete success as they hit every emotion leading onto the evening fun perfectly. 

All the fun of the fair! Fiona and Andy planned a fun fair evening for their guests, including all the classic stalls with plenty of prizes up for grabs. This couple are clearly a lover of music, as they indulged their evening guests with yet another talented singer, whilst guests tucked into fresh crepes, candyfloss and sweets galore! The evening of fun was topped off with a band that got everyone on the dancefloor to celebrate a mega day of love and fun. 

We wish Fiona and Andrew all the very best in their future together x
