Rich and Will's delightful Askham Hall wedding held in January was a dream day, filled with personal touches and styled decor. Vintage cars, travel and literature were the inspirations for the design of this very special day and the boys did an amazing job. Surrounded by family and friends at the stunning Askham Hall we had a very cosy day, scattered with snowdrops and wintery foliage, Askham looking ever beautiful. It's just one of those venues that lends itself to every season. The reception was held in the barn and it looked stunning. Mum-made wedding cake and paper planes made from vintage maps. We loved it! We were lucky enough to be working with (and getting very cold!) our pals at the talented Tux&Tales not to mention the seamless team at Askham. A beautiful day for two beautiful souls. Congrats to Will and Rich and here is a little taster of their day...
The lovely Paula and Johnny wed in their treasured home town of Glasgow. Their venue of choice, a church situated a stones throw from their family home and the delightful boutique hotel, One Devonshire Gardens. Traditional pipes, kilts, and buttonholes wrapped with thistle gave the day it's Scottish feel. Whisky made the favours and was the tipple of choice for many during the festivities. Good times working with photographer Claudia Rose Carter and the team at One Devonshire. A beautiful Jenny Packham gown and lots of smiles. Here's a little film of their gorgeous day. Congratulations Johnny and Paula! x
These days there are very few feature films or television program that don't contain some visual effects. Even things that you don't expect to contain visual effects, like romantic comedies, do contain them. They contain what is known in the industry as "invisible visual effects". These are effects that the audience doesn't realise are effects, as apposed to obvious visual effects like a giant dinosaur. Invisible effects are things like replacing a sky with a more interesting sky or replacing a green screen to make it look like an actor is outside rather than in a studio. I know this because for over ten years I have been a visual effects editor, working on feature films including Prince of Persia, Skyfall and Edge of Tomorrow.
When I work on wedding films for Silver Sixpence Films I approach them in the same way I do a feature film, and this includes using visual effects where I feel they can make something more cinematic.
In the past I have enhanced shots in our wedding films by replacing the sky when it has been very cloudy, I have removed cars and unsightly objects from the backgrounds of shots when they distract from the bride and groom, I have even removed photographers from shots when they spoil the composition, made it look like a groom is fantastic at playing pool, and added many more invisible effects to improve our films. You can see some of the recent visual effects we have done in our reel below and it's another example of the time and effort we go to to make sure that our wedding films are as beautiful and cinematic as possible. We are quite possibly the only wedding film company in the world that can offer this as part of our service which is all thanks to our feature film experience.
