Cat and Simon had an awesome winter wedding here in Manchester. It was freezing but beautifully sunny, one of those really crisp winter days. Cat is one of the most fun brides I've ever had the pleasure of working with, constantly cracking jokes and having a good time. This was a totally stress free wedding! Champagne and warm mince pies were served outside in the cold sunshine after the ceremony before everyone moved onto Gorton Monastery for the reception on vintage buses. An incredible venue that I love shooting at. The day finished with a great dancefloor that never got quiet and featured my favourite drunken act - the tie around the head, watch out for it!
Cathy and Paul got married last year at a very wet and windy Shrigley Hall in Macclesfield. It was a very intimate wedding and we had great fun filming it. we even managed to get out onto the golf course in evening in a brief dry spell. Cathy and Paul moved to Switzerland to teach straight after the wedding, good luck guys! x
Within 7 days we shot two wedding videos at the same venue, we've been to West Tower a few times now and it's always great. The fact that it's next to corn field looking over rolling hills definitely helps! This is one of my favourite videos that we've done, just because of that field! And a cool couple too!
Last year we filmed Victoria and Karl's wedding in Southport at Meols Hall and this year we had the pleasure of filming Karl's brother Brett's wedding at The West Tower in Ormskirk. West Tower has a gorgeous corn fireld right next to the lawn which makes for amazing photos and videos and luckily they had an amazing sunset on their day which you can see at the end of this video. Our videographer Harold (yes that's his real name and he's only 27!) had the great idea of Tammy and Brett doing their first dance outside on the lawn as the sun was coming down. So, surrounded by their friends and family they had their first dance outside played by their guitarist. Awesome!
We filmed Cheryl and Drew's wedding on the wettest day of 2012! Cast your minds back a couple of months to when there was flooding all over the North of England... well that was the day that Cheryl and Drew got married. I've never shot a wedding in such bad conditions! But they didn't let it get them down and everyone had a great time. After a Church service in Burnley everyone headed to the amazing Inn at Whitewell up in the hills North of Burnley and where the flooding was the worst in the whole country! The Inn at Whitewell normally has a quaint river running behind it where couples have their photographs taken on the steppingstones. The steppingstones where a few feet underwater and the river was close to bursting it's banks as you'll see on the video. We had to drive home through ridiculously high water but we made it, just!
