A quick look at the lovely wedding of Leigh and Hayley at Woodlands Boutique Hotel in Gildersome.
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...
I don't think we have ever worked at a wedding where the entire congregation give the Bride and Groom a standing ovation with cheers and whoops as the Bride walks down the isle, but this one did! This fabulous international pair had a jet setting bunch who couldn't be more vocal about how they felt attending this lovely wedding! Anyone who gets 'Hubby' and 'Wifey' Converse trainers gets cheer in our eyes! It was also the best religious ceremony we have attended, where everyone was included and encouraged to take part. It was so personal and beautifully conducted, a real dream to shoot.
We loved Laura's details of orange and white florals against the dramatic and historical castle backdrop. The wedding breakfast room was truly stunning and no detail was overlooked. We are really happy to share with you this very special trailer. The final film is in the edit at the moment and it just reminds us how special and beautiful a wedding day really is when you have everyone you love by your side.
I think this might be our absolute most favourite wedding film trailer of all time. I just LOVE Kate. She is so beautiful, like something out of a MGM Hollywood film in the 1940's. Not to mention her stunning Jenny Packham dress which she truly rocked. Her partner James was a very dapper gentleman indeed and the two of them together, divine. I actually cried at this wedding, James made Kate a wonderful slideshow of pictures of her as a baby through to the two of them together, it was so lovely, I can't even tell you. Kate's creativity and style was extremely high up on the glamour scale. The room she had crafted (yes she did most of this herself - including the flowers!!) was a sea of ivory and crystal, reflective glass, glittering sliver beads, soft white peonies, ribbons and vintage style buttons and clasps, it was such a dream. Bundles of baby's breath made for stunning centre pieces balanced high up on glass plinths and silver candelabras, surrounded by hundreds of candles. The venue, Subton Hall as the back drop to this amazing day, was perfect, it's extensive grounds and impressive architecture oozes sophistication and old English charm. We wish both of them the biggest congratulations and love, and best wishes for their future together. Watch their trailer here....
We know, having spoken to many brides, that a wedding film is not at the top of the list when organising a wedding. We also know from all our previous clients that having a wedding film is one of the best decisions that couples feel they made after their wedding. We are regularly told that it is our wedding film and not the photographs that the couple get out year after year on their anniversary, and it is our film that brought everyone to tears. A good photograph is a beautiful memento of the day, but the real and full emotion can only be captured in a wedding film. That is why we take great pride in knowing someone has been moved to tears by every single film we have made so far! Another thing that we often hear is how lovely the couple find watching the wedding video and seeing things that they missed on the day. Often, they say, their weddings went by so quickly that they didn’t really have time to enjoy it or fully absorb everything that was happening and so having a wedding film means that they can experience all those things properly again and again.
Also, a lot of people aren't aware that wedding films have changed an incredible amount in the last few years. Gone are the days of the four hour, realtime wedding film that you can only bring yourself to watch through once before putting it on a shelf. Wedding films now look and feel like beautiful, cinematic short films and are watchable again and again, helping you to relive your wedding day without putting aside hours to do it.
The absolutely gorgeous Danielle and Stuart were hitched over the Christmas break, and what a stunning wedding it was. From first meeting the beautiful, immaculate Danielle, I knew, as her eyes danced describing the 'winter wonderland' theme, glittering and sparkling in an array of ivory and silver, it would be amazing. A crisp day in the heart of Leeds, bleaching, flaring sunlight filled our lenses, as we filmed the imposing St Anne's Cathedral. Observing midday mass, as we sussed out the venue, a creeping sense of tranquillity and quiet was upon us, as though it was giving this lovely couple an approving nod. Capturing those first glimpses of Danielle and her girls, wrapped in ivory fur and hands full of frothing bundles of gypsophila was, simply, wonderful.
Festivities continued at the fabulous Stansfield Arms. A white marquee in the grounds hosted a haven of pristine decor, and the most indulgent and mouth watering assortment of puddings and cakes we have ever witnessed. Tables were set with sparkling candelabras and arrangements of white and ivory flowers, an air of sophistication filled the room. The mood was set by the sounds of the superb Neill Ryan.
Aesthetic beauty aside, (and everything at this wedding was beautiful!!), we were truly touched and warmed by the love of Danielle and Stuart from their nearest and dearest, and for each other. There was a glow of love and adoration from every face in the room for this couple, and it shone, brighter then any of the glittering decor.
It wasn't long before the amazing Peggy Sarsfield and Co got the floor moving and the rest is history. The term 'knee's up!' is an understatement!
All in all, we are delighted to present the trailer to Danielle and Stuart's film, and are even more humbled and warmed by the invite to join them for their stunning day, and can only wish them all the happiness and luck in the world for their future together.
Here is it;
