We always get the best clients when we film weddings at The Crab and Lobster in Thirsk. It is such a fantastic country venue. So quirky and different. We had a fantastic day with Charlotte and Jonty filming their very laid back wedding, teaming up with our pal Ryan at Shutter Go Click Photography, amazing weather, fab suppliers and lovely, lovely clients and what a dress! Charlotte, you rocked it!
Such a perfect sunny April day for Charlotte and Neil's gorgeous wedding day in Oxfordshire. Opting for a traditional church service in Bicester, the reception was held on the Oak Tree Farm in Doddershall, the vibes were fun, floral and rustic. Charlotte's attention to detail was sublime, everything looked so beautiful at every turn. Florals, courtesy of The Great Little Flower Company were bunched into rustic hand ties, table arrangements sporting bluebells growing from mossy beds, succulents and lily of the valley, it was a wondrous meadow of Spring flowers! We loved working with the brilliant Kari Bellamy photography, a delight in person and in print, what a superstar. You can see her brilliant photos from this fabulous day here. There was no end to the cosying up round fire pits, jumping on hay bales and basking in the beautiful April sunlight for their guests, and a brilliant evening party. Congratulations again Charlotte and Neil, here's to a very happy life together and some fantastic memories! xx
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...
"It is so gorgeous, we absolutely love the highlights video - we've both laughed out loud and I've cried a fair bit too watching it back. You've done such a fantastic job putting it together. Thank you. It's also so lovely to have the speeches and ceremony in full, as some elements on the day were a bit of a blur. We're on our 4th viewing already and counting! Thank you both again for being so brilliant on the day and capturing everything so beautifully." Matt & Hannah
We love love love shooting at the gorgeous Rise Hall, but what makes it super special is when we work with lovely people with a beautiful love story. We first met Matt whilst filming a wedding last year, where he was playing acoustic guitar for our Brides entrance. Matt is such a talented musician, and lives and breathes music. This was a wonderfully romantic day and music set the scene. Matt wrote Natalie's isle song, it was just so perfect in every way. We loved shooting with our new pals Tom and Ant over at Fossca Photography , we had a blast and were totally spoilt shooting with our gorgeous couple and their lovely family and friends. We really love this trailer, it is so pretty and romantic. I loved that the family chipped in to make decorations and create all the pretty. I love that they organised a Bake Off! Genius! Enjoy this little taster of a lovely romantic day and big shout out to the great suppliers we worked with on the day, especially Helen and her team at Rise Hall and our boys Fossca. x
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
Oh my, I don't really know where to start with this one. It was our absolute most favourite wedding so far this year, we had a perfect day, outdoor ceremony, cute dogs and our gorgeous couple, Hannah and Pete who we have known for a while now. We were booked by these lovely two after filming the equally beautiful wedding last year of Hannah's brother, Dan and his gorgeous now Wife, Loveday. This family just radiate love and hope and fun and we are head over heels for them all. The Green in Liskeard is a stunning setting too, high on the hills surrounded by country meadows and the cottages on site are really lovely. We even managed to take a little holiday in nearby Fowey ourselves, so we really did make the most of our Cornwall adventures! The outdoor ceremony was picture perfect with rustic touches, hay bales and bundles of hand tied white gyp and lavender. The theme of Mad Hatters Tea Party in the wedding breakfast room presented 'Drink Me' favours, and a delicious afternoon tea. The most striking thing about Hannah and Pete's day, was really the love for each other and everyone attending, it was the best atmosphere! They are just a gorgeous pair and it really radiates from them, filming with them was just a dream. We just wanted to take this opportunity to say congratulations to you both, we wish you so much love and happiness for your future! P & E xx
We are so lucky to work in some of the most beautiful places, and we just love filming in the Lake District, so we jumped at the chance to film for Ruth & Tico when our good friend WeddingsByAnnabel contacted us. The lovely Rampsbeck Hotel in Ullswater hosted this unique day, and it was a close knit friends and family affair. Ruth and Tico and their beautiful baby girl kept us in smiles and good spirits and were just so much fun to be around. Everywhere we looked we were spoilt with amazing views and scenery. Ruth and Tico's personal additions to the day were wonderful, they two met whilst playing World of Warcraft and so the decor and details gave a nod to that. It was a pleasure working with photographer Helen Whitaker who matched our informal style of filming perfectly and the gorgeous and amazing Annabel (wedding coordinator) of course! We are happy to present this little film to Ruth & Tico as a reminder of their very special day, your final film will be whizzing its way to the Netherlands soon! 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.
We really love working with elite hotels, and The Corinthia comes high upon the elite list. Nested gracefully on the banks of the Thames, this hidden luxury hotel hosts a wealth of beauty, elegance and divine interiors, suites and spaces. Catriona and Tom held their beautiful winter wedding day around this glorious hotel. Starting the day with a touch of pampering by staff at Danial Gavin for groom Tom, and a girly get together with family and friends for Catriona. Nuptuials were held at the St Etheldreda church in the heart of Holborn, a secret place of divine clam in the centre of bustling streets. We were treated to the sophisticated sights of Catriona and Tom making their way back to the hotel in a fabulous horse and carriage.
Evening entertainment, provided as a fantastic surprise for Tom, was kicked of by Catriona serenading our innocent Groom following the cake cutting, only to be interrupted by some unruly guests. True form was soon revealed as singing trio Incognito. They had everyone on the dance floor in 30 seconds flat, and even we couldn't help bopping along to the Grease medley! Big thanks to the very talented photographer Jez Dickenson, you can see his stunning photo's of the big day here. A mention too for the wonderful Claire Bowpitt at the Corinthia for seamlessly running the day and looking after us all!
A stunning day full of brilliant surprises and we loved putting this little film together for Catriona and Tom, so enjoy!
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
