George and Lorna put on a beautifully rustic day at the fabulous Askham Hall. This stunning location lends itself so gracefully to those tiny details that makes each wedding so unique. A rustic, vintage travel theme graced us on George and Lorna's big day, and we were so excited to be back at one of our favourite venues! The barn looked stunning with hand tied flowers, bay trees and orbs of light hanging effortlessly from the vaulted beams. We loved the vintage camera centre pieces for the wedding breakfast and lace edged cakes. It is so inspiring seeing different venues tackle the changing seasons, and with the end of Winter nearly upon us and as if so timely, the tinniest of buds and daffodils carefully blessed the day, a hint at the begging of a new life and a bright future for George and Lorna. It was the perfect day to mark the beginnings of Spring and we wish this lovely two all the best for the happiest of ever afters.
I think we had been looking forward to Phil and Lizzie's wedding all Summer. We knew it was going to be a good old knees up, and that some of our besties were going to be there... bonus! The day didn't disappoint. To start with, Lizzie, a local BBC radio presenter, is just gorgeous, and we knew that she would have a dress to die for, and didn't she just! The whole family are just lovely, lovely people, and we were made up to be asked to shoot the wedding for her and Phil. It was a local affair, held in the pretty village of Brantingham, East Yorshire. Bridal prep kicked off at the family home in Cottingham, with vintage VW camper and car arriving to pick up the bridal party. The church service was held at the very pretty local church, and the marquee reception, high on the hill at the Keeper's Lodge, was hidden away, with views over the Yorkshire Wolds. The theme was vintage tea party, and we loved all of the gorgeous details, china tea cups, and pretty birdcage centre pieces. We have to mention the amazing live acoustic set by the lovely Mike Wright, and working with the photographer Nick Freeman, of 246 Photography. It was a great day, and we hope you enjoy this fun, vintage inspired trailer for the lovely two;
Ahhhh Tom and Leanne's wedding. The day Ed fell in a river. Amazingly, we still have this very lovely film to share with you, despite our adventures!
Whimsical was our brief for this delightful wedding in South Yorkshire at the lovely Hodsock Priory. The gorgeous newly wed's Tom and Leanne were a delight to work with and the most gracious and kind we have ever met. We loved Leanne's attention to wedding day details and their amazing vintage car. Tom took refuge with his merry men on the wedding day morning at the fabulous Gentleman's Retreat in Bawtry a must for any Groomsmen wanting some traditional wedding grooming. Leanne and her girls got ready at the family home, which was a bubble of excitement and laughter. Funnily enough, the vicar at the church was Rev Kate Bottley from Chanel 4's Gogglebox. Brilliant. We had heard rumours of Rev Kate making her way down isles on mopeds and such like, nothing so extreme on this day, but a brilliant service, entertaining, funny and heartfelt. We loved it and we loved how personal and unique she made it for Tom and Leanne. On to Hodsock Priory and after getting gold footage of that gorgeous car on the drive over there, we stopped and Ed jumped out for shots with the lovely Camilla Rosa Photography and of course the happy couple. I didn't see Ed for a while following that moment. Thinking all was breezy and normal, I went on with my routine of details at the venue and general milling around of guests. Little did I know that I couldn't have been more wrong! Disaster! Ed had actually accidentally fallen in a river. Saved by hero of the day, Groom Tom, when he finally reached dry shores, Ed insisted on carrying on filming, to get those final shots. Even though he basically looked like he had been swimming, and rolled through nettles and mud. Need I say more, the footage is brilliant!
We loved this day, and will talk about it forever more. Here is a beautiful little taster of this beautiful wedding, with a fabulous story behind it, that now you all know.
