“The video is great thank you, you are definitely a master of your craft!!”
From February to April and the weather is beautiful, the sun shining. Farington Lodge is the setting for Barry & Stacey’s big day, a superb AA four star Grade II listed Georgian house set in three acres of mature lawns and gardens, blends lavish period splendour and a fascinating history with the very best contemporary luxury.
At the other extreme to the weather, Dave the Photographer at Silver Image had to come from Buxton, the setting for my last wedding, yet this time he had been snowed in for a few days prior – after digging himself out and using a Land Rover instead of his suped up Mondeo he was able to make it to Farington Lodge. You couldnt compare the two weather conditions, six foot snow drifts to beautfful blue skies and the sun on your face.
The service and dinner all took place at the venue, speeches were before dinner so that the speakers were able to sit and enjoy their meal. I concluded filming just after the speeches along with Dave from Silver Image Photography.

In February 2012 hoping that the bad weather didnt bring heavy snow to the beautiful Peak District town of Buxton. I set off to film the wedding (civil partnership) of Victoria
“Flo” and Ciara.
The weather on the 25th February was crisp, cold with a beautiful blue sky, the kind of weather minus the cold temperature that most people would love on their big day between the months of May to September- After all this is the UK and you cant guarantee or book the weather.
The day was superb, the service was excellent and conducted by Ann Needham.
The Photography on the day was provided by High Peak photography and the dvd by myself, Mark at Marlyn Pictures. All the images in this blog are taken from the DVD.
Welcome to the new Marlyn Pictures blog. This is my first post using wordpress.
In the coming months i will be using the blog to showcase my various talents as a film maker in both the wedding and commercial film industry.
At present im working on a short film called “A State of Heart” which is due for release in March 2013 and tells the story of Mac Stoddard, ex special forces now working as a karate instructor when Marie, one of Mac’s friends is attacked by a serial killer prowling the streets of Stockport. Along with detective Mike Logan the chase is on – more to follow.
Ive also been working on a few commercial projects towards the latter half of 2012, for companies like One Stop Property Solutions, Vid CV and MoneySupermarket.com.
