Syon Park Wedding Video

Syon Park is one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the UK, and the Garden Rooms marquee has a capacity of 600 seated guests, making it ideal for a larger wedding. Courtney and Gurpinder had hundreds of family and friends in attendance, many travelling from far off parts of the globe. There was an especially strong Canadian contingent, from Courtney’s side, making the day a coming together of cultures, all culminating in one of the best parties we’ve seen. The sun shone during the gorgeous outdoor ceremony, with only a few pauses as the low-flying planes roared past. The proximity to Heathrow means that yes, you’ll see planes. Lots of planes. But this adds flavour to the footage and we included them in the film because they added a unique touch and the theme here is travel, so it seems appropriate! As usual, the staff at Syon Park were friendly and helpful, and the DJs from Kudos were as always amazing. Courtney and Gurpinder decided to forgo readings during the ceremony and there were no speeches, so there’s less dialogue than usual in this wedding film, which was an interesting challenge! Still, we crafted the story visually and with a focus on the awesome party, reflecting the energy and enthusiasm of the day. I love the simplicity of the story and the dance floor action, and I hope you do too :)

“Party’s This Way” – Courtney & Gurpinder

Courtney and Gurpinder were amazing to work with, and both looked like movie stars on the day. With so many loved ones in attendance, there were smiles throughout the day, and their newborn baby was one of the stars of the show. We wish you and your family all the best for the future. Congratulations once again – amazing times ahead!

Eastnor Castle Wedding Video

What can we say about Eastnor Castle other than it’s one of the most stunning venues in the UK? Well, yes it is indeed impressive, with its beautiful lake and grand exterior, set in the rolling countryside on the edge of the Cotswolds. But inside, it is quirky and gothic, surprises lurk round every corner and the staff are amazing. Eastnor Castle’s reputation as a top UK wedding venue is well deserved. For wedding videographers, the location is a dream. We got to film the surrounding wildlife, the breathtaking views and every location inside and outside the castle was unique and provided the perfect backdrop to what was an absolutely gorgeous wedding. Top UK photographer Jon Mold was a pleasure to work with (seriously, the guy is a wizard! Which is why he’s one of our favourite photographers). Kavitha and Andrew were wonderful to be around, and as you can see in their wedding film, they were very much in love, really romantic and looked like they’d both stepped off the set of the latest James Bond movie. Enjoy the film :)

“Angel” – Kavitha & Andrew

The bride and groom travelled all the way from Australia for their big day. If you’re planning a destination wedding in the UK, then you do have to accept that rain may be a factor, and sure enough, it was! Luckily, the venue had some lovely areas inside, so we took full advantage of the venue and all it had to offer. The rain didn’t stop the day’s main events, such as the archery, confetti and fireworks. The archery was a first for us, and Kavitha and Andrew managed to hit the bullseye without any problems (there may or may not have been a little creative editing involved there!).

The foundation of all our films is the words spoken on the day, and we were spoilt for choice here, as Kavitha and Andrew had such beautiful things to say to each other. It’s always fantastic when the bride gives a speech, and together with their personal vows and the letters they gave to each other, we had some of the most romantic words possible. As if that wasn’t enough, the celebrant from Grace The Day gave us even more content in the form of poems and readings during the ceremony. This all helped us show a depth of story that we always strive for.

Many congratulations to Kavitha and Andrew. You were amazing to work with, patient and hospitable, not to mention ridiculously gorgeous, and we wish you both a long, happy and successful life together :)

Wedding Silhouette Artist: Alison Russell

We meet some really talented suppliers at the weddings we attend – fabulous make-up artists, hair stylists, musicians, DJs, florists, caterers, caricaturists, magicians, celebrants, dancers, planners, etc etc. So when a particular supplier stands out so much that we want to give them a specific shout-out, you know they’re amazing! We met Alison Russell at Alice and David’s stunning wedding at Brocket Hall last year. She is one of the best silhouette artists in the UK and her work is beyond beautiful! Take a look at this little clip we put together :)

“Alison Russell: Silhouette Artist” – Brocket Hall, Hertfordshire

It’s not just the quality of Alison’s work that makes her stand out, but also the speed that she produces every image. She is an artist, working with scissors instead of a paint brush. Smiling as she cuts away, everyone is relaxed, until they see the silhouettes and their jaws drop :) A silhouette cutter is a great addition to any wedding, and Alison’s images are truly unique. She is also unobtrusive, and the results are a rare pleasure for guests. You can find Alison at

Cotswolds Wedding Video

The Slaughters Manor House is a stunning venue, set in some of the most gorgeous surroundings you can find in the UK. It’s such a pleasure to film in the Cotswolds, that quintessentially English part of the countryside which is so timeless and romantic. Even in the torrential rain, there was so much beauty, and we could have filled the whole film with pretty shots of the village scenery. The Slaughters Manor House is the perfect wedding location for wedding photographers and videographers, and of course for couples looking for an unspoiled rural setting for their big day. Leonie and David have a great sense of humour and were smiling throughout, even as the rain continued to pour, but luckily Leonie’s call for the rain to stop was heard, and the rain was replaced by glorious sunshine. As wedding videographers, we love contrast, and when all the seasons are combined in a single day it enhances the story and adds texture to the film. David and Leonie are perfect together, and were such fun to work with. It was also a pleasure to work with the amazing Jessie Thomson, who planned the wedding so precisely, with such attention to detail, and worked tirelessly behind the scenes. This is one of our favourite weddings from 2016, as you can hopefully tell from the film :)

“I do, I do, I do” – Leonie & David

We have many fond memories of this fabulous day, which was chock-full of content. From the games in the morning, to the cute gift exchange, the horse-drawn carriage, the traditional English church ceremony, fantastic speeches and an awesome sparklers exit, it wasn’t easy fitting everything into one short film!

It was also a coming together of two cultures, with families from England and Singapore (where David and Leonie live and work), and guests from all over the world. The families get on like a house on fire, given the smiles and laughter all day. It was a warm and happy atmosphere, enhanced by one of the best groom’s speeches that we’ve heard (and we’ve heard a few!). There wasn’t room in the short film to include all of the humour, for example when the best man, David’s brother, introduced himself as David’s son, to howls of laughter, and then demanded we restart the recording. Or the “Yum Seng” traditional Singaporean toast, which filled the room with a deafening chant. However, the couple will receive full edits of the ceremony and speeches so everything that didn’t make the final cut will be preserved :)

Many congratulations to Leonie and David, and thank you for being such a pleasure to work with. And thank you again for the delicious tarts, which was such a thoughtful gesture! Much love to you both. There’s no doubt you’ll have an amazing future together :)

Brocket Hall Wedding Video

Brocket Hall near Welwyn, Hertfordshire is one of our favourite wedding venues, combining history, luxury and gorgeous scenery. The views across the lake are breathtaking, and it’s no surprise that Brocket Hall remains one of the most popular golf courses in the UK, as well as a much-loved location for wedding videographers and photographers :) The light from the huge windows in the spectacular ballroom is perfect for speeches, and it means we don’t have to add any extra lighting to create a stunning look – a very rare thing in England! As you can see, Alice and David are a beautiful couple, inside and out, and they suited the exquisite surroundings to a tee (excuse the golf pun!). Working with Steve Shipman was also a delight – his reportage style makes him very discreet and he has a great eye for a perfect image. The day was a real joy to capture, with lots of smiles, a few tears, some truly fantastic, heartwarming and funny speeches – and plenty of romance. Enjoy :)

“Breathless” – Alice & David

We love fireworks – especially when they are combined with such stunning views! The fireworks exploded across the water, their reflections dancing on the surface, as well as on the windows of the main hall. It’s always tricky staging fireworks in the summer months, due to the late sunset, but even though there were still some remnants of daylight during the display, it actually made a nice change and didn’t hurt the visuals at all. When you’re filming an event at somewhere as grand as Brocket Hall, you have to capture the scale of it all, with sweeping wide shots combined with more intimate footage. But even in the midst of all this grandeur, we were there to tell the story of a gorgeous young couple in love, and no matter where Alice and David got married or held their reception, they would have been happy in their own little world. The scenery falls away, and we are simply left with a boy and a girl who were made for each other.

Many thanks to the amazing staff at Brocket Hall, who made sure everything was on time and everyone was happy. And the biggest thanks of all to Alice, David and their wonderful family, who were so kind and hospitable at every stage. It’s easy to see where the couple’s qualities came from :)

Alice and David, we wish you the very best for the future. It’s going to be bright! Much love to you both.

Best Wedding Videographer Hertfordshire

Danesfield House Wedding Video

Danesfield House in Marlow, Buckinghamshire is a gorgeous venue with a beautiful fountain and gardens and spectacular views of the River Thames. When we film weddings in such a picturesque location, we know we’re going to get awesome footage, but Mahdis and Dariush’s amazing day exceeded all our expectations. It’s days like this which make our job as wedding videographers such a pleasure. Stunning vistas and wonderful people having fun and shedding a few happy tears – what more can you ask for! It’s always fun working with the lovely and talented photographer Kari Bellamy, who is one of our Top 20 Wedding Photographers in the UK :) We love how this film turned out and we hope you do too!

“Divine Intervention” – Mahdis & Dariush

As you can see, it was a really windy day, which is not always convenient for the guests, as hair blows around everywhere and skirts may rise a little higher than intended! However, it’s weather like this which is perfect for wedding cinematography, adding drama and comedy – and above all movement to the footage. We love things which move – moving words combined with motion in the image is the perfect combination. The poem read during the ceremony by the father of the groom is Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116. It was read first in English, then translated into Farsi for the benefit of the Iranian guests, and we thought it would be a nice touch to have the poem begin in Farsi while we show the stunning decor of the Persian ceremony, then continue in the original English.

You can see how much thought and effort went into every detail of the day, from the bride’s stunning dress and the beautiful bridesmaids’ dresses, to the decor and musicians. All that planning certainly paid off, and will set the tone for a long and happy marriage for two of our favourite people.

Congratulations to Mahdis and Dariush, and thank you for everything!
