Lindsay arrived with the bridesmaids from the hairdressers but no makeup shots were filmed as requested. Leon and the guys turned up with Leon’s Mum and Dad for a quick photo shoot. The quartet could be heard playing in the background.

violin
The Bridemaids and Mum had their photos taken at the top of the stairs before Lindsay and her dad arrived to have a quick chat with the registrars and a couple of photosprior to walking down the Aisle.

The service was filmed on two cameras from the front, one wide and one close to allow various angles. Additional radio mics and a recording device were used to capture both the service dialogue and the quartet sound.

confetti
Mike Allen did the photography www.mikeallenphotography.co.uk and Horgans cars provided the transport. After the service came the confetti shot and then Leon & Lindsay had a run in the wedding car with champagne. The British weather kept on being its usual self with a light drizzle bit it didnt stop me and mike getting some great shots.

Michael & Victoria’s Wedding Day

Thank you for the DVD’s they were a lovely suprise for when we came back from holiday today. Love it!. I really like the images that you have included on the actual DVD’s  themselves. We are both really pleased. Especially like the black and white closing/recap piece at the end.

smallwood-church
The service took place at Smallwood Church in Cheshire, followed by the reception at a Marquee in the field opposite Michael & Victoria’s house.

The day started with the hair and makeup shots at Victoria’s (Tori) parents and then onto the church awaiting Michael and the guests arriving. The vicar at the Church was great, really accomodating and he also runs Astley church. The service was filmed from the rear of the church on two cameras, one wide and one close with radio mics in place to capture a good quality soundtrack. Filming at the back of the church is really unobtrusive as the couple and guests hardly notice your there.

Once the service was over and the confetti thrown it was then onto the reception for the drinks reception. There was also an ice cream cart and canopies providing guests with light refreshments as the sun shined.

As the photographs were taken, a quartet played classical and modern tracks.

Rob & Michelle
got married in August at Styal Lodge in Styal. Situated right next door to the Golf Club. The building has recently been renovated to a very high standard and carries a civil wedding licence to allow marriages on the premises.2

The weather was warm which made the fresh ice cream, cold beers and chilled wine the perfect indulgence.

No wedding car was required as Michelle and her bridesmaids were able to get ready the the Lodge itself – the onsite catering is superb.13

Thank you very much for our wedding DVDs.

Thank you also for producing such a great film. It seems like such a long time ago now so it’s nice to have something to watch. Rob was very reluctant to have it done but he’s so pleased with it now and so glad that I persuaded him to go for it. We would highly recommend you.

Thanks again
Michelle & Rob

The DVD is great.17

Keith & Lorraine’s wedding was filmed in October and what superb weather they had – goes to show that in the UK you cannot predict the best time to get maried in order to have nice weather. The  month to avoid though is November as on record it usually does rain a lot.
