A quick look at the lovely wedding of Leigh and Hayley at Woodlands Boutique Hotel in Gildersome.
This was such an amazing wedding day just outside of York. We loved the beautiful setting at Aldby Park and the stunningly decorated sperry tent. Rustic details, countryside theme and a whole lot of fun was had.
Jess is just one of those people who lights up the room, her gorgeous and warm smile is so endearing and we were so happy to be brought in to film her homespun wedding to Paul. A church ceremony held at Skirlaugh church, a venue close to my own heart (in the village that I went to school) and then on to the delightful Rise Hall. Jess hadn't missed a detail, and we were spoilt with the attention she had crafted and thought of, particularly at Rise, which was decorated beautifully. We were treated to spending the day with the brilliant photographers Dom and Zoe Wright and Helen Davies and her team, who seamlessly operate festivities at Rise.
We are delighted to share this little taste of a fun filled day;
Love, laughter and good fun was what Sam and Kelly wanted from their big day, held at the stunning Natural Retreats in North Yorkshire. An outdoor ceremony and marquee decorated with chandeliers, flat caps and pipes for the boys and a scattering of sparkle for the new Mrs North. Sam and Kelly held a truly international affair with friends and family flying over from all corners of the world, the beauty of holding the day at Natural Retreats was that everyone was in one place, together to enjoy the weekend and created a real party atmosphere! We loved working with the brilliant Paul Liddement Wedding Stories who's photo's are gorgeous, you can view them here . Forage and Blossom created the beautiful and elegant florals, a stunning arch for the ceremony, natural whites and greens for the bouquets which married to the surroundings. The day was fun from start to finish and we love their upbeat wedding trailer which captures the day perfectly. Congratulations you lovely two! x
It seems like 5 minutes ago that Andy and Emma were both sat with us having a cuppa, talking about the plans for their big day. Winter, log fires, Lake Windermere, country house... all words that made us feel very happy indeed. Well the day arrived, and it was truly blessed, held at the perfectly placed Merewood House in Windermere, with snow capped hills, beautiful blue skies and a heart stopping sunset, we didn't stop smiling all day!
Emma's winter wonderland, so carefully crafted and designed, was stunning. White twisted willow laced with pearls and diamonte, weaved in through bundles of baby's breath and candle light, set the scene for a wonderfully romantic day. This film naturally lends itself to romance and an old fashioned glamour that is beautiful, elegant and strong. There is something so strikingly beautiful about Emma, our cameras couldn't get enough of that photogenic face, and captivating eyes, especially in her gorgeous Ian Stuart dress from Ava Rose Hamilton. She's the epitome of glamour and romance and it was a delight to film with her, and the gorgeous Andy, of course! Emma's natural kindness and warmth radiated through the day, and we embraced it. The strength and love between Andy and Emma is inspiring. We can only hope that they love this film as much as we do and remember always, their perfect day, and how perfect they are together.
These Two. I have to say, we work with some pretty lovely people in this business, but creating a wedding film for Ollie and Jenna, was so delightful in everyway. We knew when we met them at Silkstone All Saints Church back in the Spring, that they were lovely, and we really couldn't wait to see the pretty pastel hues, gold and sparkle and all the exquisite details that Jenna described for her big day, in action. We were not disappointed. As well as getting to hang out with the fantastic fine art photographer that is Georgina Harrison all day (you can see her beautiful photos here; http://georginaharrisonphotography.co.uk/2014/07/yorkshire-wedding-photography-smallshaw-farm-marquee-wedding-jenna-ollie/), we were all in agreement that we were spoilt with glamour and natural sophistication. For Jenna, bridal preparation started at the family home, whilst Ollie warmed up the fantastic Smallshaw Farm cottages with his merry groomsmen. On arrival at the church, hues of pastel corals and ivory flowers hung beautifully on the dark wooden pews, framing the sweeping isle. Ollie looked exceptionally dashing, and with best man Joe by his side, they greeted guests and made sure everything was 'just so'. Jenna's dress was gorgeous, graceful and timeless, she stole everybody's glances as she walked the isle in her Jimmy Choo shoes, with her Father by her side.
Preceding the LONGEST confetti run we have ever witnessed, was a fabulous party and reception at Smallshaw Farm. Guests were treated to a wonderful brass band during drinks on the lawn, playing an array of tunes. The most gorgeous ivory marquee, complete with ivory star curtain, hosted the celebrations. We were in a setting so picturesque and breathtaking, we found it hard to get a bad angle. Friends For Dinner catered the day, even guests got to play at chef, with each table presented with chefs hat and carving tools for the main course.
Into the evening we were treated to a One Direction number for Ollie and Jenna's first dance, and a bombardment of beaver masks - a nod to Jenna's former surname and hen doo. It was a truly stunning day, and we felt really honoured to have had the opportunity to create a wedding film for these two. We were so humbled by such praise for the final product, which you can read here in our testimonials. All that is left to say is all the best, and so much love to the two of you for a fantastic future together. Watch the trailer to their film here;
We love to hear feedback on our work, and it makes us so happy when we receive emails like these from our clients! We have had these words sitting in our inbox and I wanted to share them with our Brides and Grooms-to-be, and other couples out there who may be thinking of having a wedding film, but still haven't taken the plunge! We hear over and over again, that we were the best decision our couples made on the big day, and that makes us smile. So have a read and get in touch!
"We were really pleased with everything Penny and Ed did. They fitted in at the wedding perfectly blending in with our guests really well (a number of guests said they did not even know we had been filming on the day when we showed them the video!). We felt so relaxed with both penny and Ed from the minute we met them (over Skype initially) and that was completely down to them and this helped enormously.
During the day we had a great laugh with both Penny and Ed meaning the filming was a really enjoyable part of the wedding, rather than us having a feeling of being away from the day when we did some individuals shoots. Finally, the videos were just fantastic (which obviously helps) and brought back all the amazing memories of the day in a way that photos just can’t do. I would recommend everyone get a video done and even more so use Penny and Ed to do it". Gemma & Niall
"Just to say thank you so much for the BEAUTIFUL package that we received on Saturday. We couldn't wait to open it and we were so excited to watch the film. It is truly fantastic, we were completely blown away and love every second- we found watching it very emptional! It's so brilliant to be able to relive the day on the film, it's captured absolutely perfectly, you have both done such an amazing job. The music on the film is brilliant too and complements the footage perfectly.
We can't thank you both enough for capturing our memories and we really appreciate all the time, effort and hard work you both spent on the films. It really shows in such a beautiful film." Oliver & Jenna
"Just to let you know we received our wedding film (Beautifully packaged!) The film is absolutely amazing, we love it! it has captured the day perfectly and it will be something can watch and treasure for years to come. We still receive so many complements about the wedding trailer, I cant stop watching it! Thank you for all your time and effort and being so lovely throughout our whole wedding experience. By far one of the best decisions we made was having a wedding film and we were so lucky to find you.
We honestly cant recommend you enough." Tom & Leanne
"Choosing Silver Sixpence Films was the single best decision we made when planning our wedding. We did alot of research into videographers and watched many wedding trailers, but when we saw Ed & Penny's work we knew we had found The One!
We had a very small wedding with just 20 guests, and lots of people commented on the fact that they barely noticed the cameras - they were unobtrusive and captured all the details of the day without ever being in the way. Having asked to have the bridal preparations captured as well, I can say that both Ed and Penny were a pleasure to spend time with, even with lots of excitement and nerves on my part.
The trailer and wedding film are so beautiful, we cannot thank Ed and Penny enough for making us look our best and for managing to capture the emotion of the day, as well as delivering it to us in beautiful packaging. The film has been the perfect way to share our wedding with friends and family, and for us to relive it again and again. It still gives me goosebumps on viewing #7 and counting...!" Dave and Lauren
"It was so lovely to come home from work on a boring Tuesday evening and receive the wedding film in the post. It was a joy to open the lovely packaged box and find our film inside. The film is truly beautiful and you have managed to capture the feeling and atmosphere of the day so well. A lot of our family and friends have been able to watch the film with us already & everyone has a tear in there eyes and comments on how wonderful it is!
We honestly couldn't have wished for anything better, and know that the film will get watched over and over again for the rest of our lives. It provides something different to photos, moving images with a soundtrack that captures the emotion of the day, & gives us lasting memories that are brought to life. Penny and Ed you are very talented and were a joy to have around on our wedding day. All I would say is I would recommend you to anyone as your creativity & vision has given us a beautiful wedding film that we will treasure forever. Thank you so much and I hope that you go on to make lots of amazing wedding films for other couples." Kevin & Lucy
"We want to say a huge thank you! The video is just wonderful! I was crying my eyes out the first 2 or 3 times i watched it, as it brought back so many emotions from the day. I love how you captured the speeches and our vows, and edited them so nicely into the video capturing so many moments in such an eloquent video of the day. The music you have used for both the trailer and the longer movie are so lovely and so fitting! The more we watch the videos the more we fell in love with them!
Ive watched the video almost everyday and i know our parents and friends are enjoying it too. We really appreciate how you have captured such precious moments and emotions of our closest family. These will last a life time as they are kept alive through the video, moments you have helped to capture for us forever.
Your packaging is lovely, im a huge fan of stationary and nice packaging and i just loved recieving such a adorable package for our wedding video! Thank you once again!" Jorge & Sarah
Here at Silver Sixpence Films, we pride ourselves in delivering high quality cinematic films, tailored to the needs of our lovely clients. What makes us super happy, is when we get beautifully written testimonials from them, telling us how happy they are! We are so very humbled and grateful for Danielle and Stuarts kind words, do take a glimpse, we wanted to share this with you all....
"We cannot even begin to express our gratitude and praise for Ed and Penny and will be in constant admiration for the work they do. From meeting at our house before the wedding and through all the efficient communication via email, texts and calls; Ed and Penny put us at ease and we felt reassured that we were doing the right thing by choosing this lovely couple to film the biggest day of our lives.
On the day, Penny and Ed were so professional and discreet and just blended into the background without anyone knowing they were there. However, when we received the final video, we were overwhelmed with the amount of detail and precious moments that had been captured throughout the day that we had never even noticed amidst the excitement.
The final product is nothing short of fantastic and has had us, our family and friends laughing and crying from the moment we pressed play. I think my mum is on about her 48th viewing!! The music chosen by Ed was simply genius and represents the day so well that it actually feels like the song has been written for the day. This is not a wedding video; it’s a film which makes your wedding day look like a trailer to a movie. The quality is simply breath-taking and the amount of work that goes into editing something like this is so abundantly clear.
After the wedding though, the real work begins and communication continued to ensure that we were happy with every aspect of the film…Penny and Ed really care that you love the film and this is something that money really cannot buy. This couple have a genuine passion for what they do and I feel that this shines through.
I literally cannot gush enough about Silver Sixpence Films. Penny and Ed are a perfect combination and it actually felt like I was talking to a friend when speaking with Penny. I have, and will continue to, recommend them to all my friends who are planning weddings and basically anyone who will listen. This film is something that we will treasure forever and we cannot endorse Silver Sixpence Films enough…they are worth every penny…and more.
All our love, the Smiths xx"
