A stunning January wedding day for Mark and Michelle saw us back at the beautiful Saltmarshe Hall in Howden, East Yorkshire. Taking photographs at this beautiful venue is an absolute dream. We love its relaxed atmosphere, whilst being super glam and beautiful to capture on camera. We loved working alongside Helen Davies, East Yorkshire’s finest wedding planner and Saltmarshe itself was looking stunning, decorated by Cherry Williams party hire. Some of our favourite supplies made the day dreamy, including the talented Victoria Farr Hair and Make Up. Our Bride Michelle was adorned with a bespoke By Harriet headpiece, which looks absolutely beautiful. Cake by Aurora Cake Studio set the tone in the wonderful entrance hall. We really loved Mark and Michelle’s colour pallet and details, setting off the wintery season with greenery and white. Winter weddings are an absolute dream in our eyes.
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.
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!
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;
