The Wedding Film of Louise & Gary at Statham Lodge

Filed under the category : Highlights Trailers

Louise & Gary’s wedding at Statham Lodge was another one of those days were the autumnal light and colours really added to the special feel of the day and once again we were working alongside the charming Martin from Martin Hambleton Photography. His images from the day will be on Martin’s blog soon.

Louise and her bridesmaids got ready together in the grand Roulette Room at Statham Lodge. There was lots of space and a little side sitting room were the girls could chill out. Louise had chosen a stunning Pronovias dress and fabulous Jimmy Choo shoes and handbag. The colour scheme for the day was black and white with the senior bridesmaids in black cocktail dresses. The only accent of colour was in the aubergine calla lilies in the floral arrangements that looked almost black from About Flowers Florists.

As a surprise for Gary, Louise had arranged for him, the bestman and their little son to be collected from home by a VW Camper Van from Cheshire Camper Van Hire. Gary wore a navy Paul Smith suit and Archie-Bruce had a little matching one which he wore with cool Batman Converse. While Louise didn’t mind Gary being relaxed and not wearing a tie she drew the line at letting Gary wear converse too. Poor Gary was ribbed all day by everyone about not wearing a tie. The groomsmen by contrast were very smart in tuxedos, but if you can’t do want you want to on your wedding day when can you? Before the ceremony Gary and the guests congregated in the bar area were the ushers gave out pins in aid of the Lung Cancer charity, bought by Louise & Gary on behalf of all the guests.

The wedding ceremony was held in the beautifully light Shelley Suite, with the sun streaming through the windows. The Endymion String Quartet played as Louise walked down the aisle. Gary was so nervous that he waited for the very last second to turn around and look at Louise, but when he did they both burst into beaming smiles. After the ceremony the weather was crisp but the sun shone and the drinks reception was on the Carriage Drive.

The wedding breakfast was in the spacious Gainsborough Suite. The speeches were first and Amber their daughter gave a very emotional speech on behalf of herself and little brother. Louise & Gary had very kindly arranged a table in the bar for us to have the same three course meal as the guests and we even had favours with our names on, which was incredibly sweet of them to do!

After the wedding breakfast before retiring to the bar Louise & Gary cut the cake with a little help from Archie–Bruce & Amber. The evening guests arrived together on an old fashioned red double decker bus. The evening reception was back in the transformed Gainsborough Suite where Hipswing Entertainments had set up a sparkling LED dance floor. There was a chocolate fountain for the kids and Scottish band The Strides covered Pulp’s amazing Something Changed for Louise & Gary’s first dance. The band performed a non-stop set until midnight, so there was lots of dancing under the mirror ball.

Here are a few stills taken from Louise & Gary’s wedding film.

The Wedding Film of Fran & Chris at Knowsley Hall

Posted By: Sara
Filed under the category : Highlights Trailers

We were very excited to be shooting Fran & Chris’ wedding at the magnificent Knowsley Hall. Tony had filmed a production client’s wedding there a couple of years ago, but Fran & Chris’s wedding would be the first time for Marry Me Films. Another reason we were looking forward to Fran & Chris’ wedding was that we would be working once again with the best suppliers in Liverpool; Sian & Robyn from So Coco Rouge and the wonderful Zoe & Joel from Zoe Photography. To see Zoe’s fabulous images from the day check out Zoe’s blog.

When we arrived at Knowsley Hall early in the morning to film Fran’s preparations the sun was just coming over the top of the Hall and it looked fantastic. Fran got ready with her mum and bridesmaids in the impressive Lord Derby Suite with the ladies from So Coco Rouge working their magic. Fran had the most stunning Caroline Castigliano wedding dress and Jimmy Choo shoes, which had blue Swarovski crystals spelling out the words ‘I do’ on the soles.

Chris and the groomsmen looked very dapper in top and tails. The wedding service was a short drive to St Mary’s Church in Prescott. Fran & Chris had got special permission to have their family vicar preform the ceremony. He had interviewed them Mr & Mrs quiz style beforehand about how they had met and what they thought about each other and it was very funny and touching. During the signing of the register The Greg Bish Blueprint duo performed. After the ceremony Fran & Chris were showered with confetti on the steps behind the Church.

The guests then made their way to Knowsley Hall while Fran & Chris went for a little drive, as they made their way up the majestic drive they were greeted by a loud cheer and another round of confetti with everyone lined up on the staircase. They then toasted with the most remarkable Swarovski crystal champagne flutes that sparkled in the sun. The drinks reception was on the back terrace overlooking the wonderful landscape gardens and the guest were once again entertained by a guitar duo from The Greg Bish Blueprint.

The wedding breakfast was served in the sumptuous State Dining Room which looked fabulous with all the old paintings and chandeliers. The table plan, names and menus were all designed by Dragonfly Couture Stationery. During the wedding breakfast the Adagio Strings Quartet performed. As the evening light before the speeches was so beautiful Zoe took the opportunity to take Fran & Chris down to the lake and we got some gorgeous footage while they practiced their first dance.

The evening reception was in the grand Zucker Ballroom. The ladies from So Coco Rouge came back in the evening and changed Fran’s makeup look and put her hair up. Fran’s Caroline Castigliano wedding dress also had an evening look with the addition of a fine black ribbon belt and pretty crystal brooch. Fran & Chris then cut the spectacular cake designed by Cakes by Beth; the table was filled with past generations of wedding day photos. Fran & Chris had learnt a waltz for their first dance and after the first couple of bars the rest of the wedding party joined in with varying degrees of success. The Greg Bish Blueprint full band then played into the night.

Here are a few stills taken from Fran & Chris’ wedding film.

The Wedding Film of Chloe & John at The Palace Hotel Manchester

Posted By: Sara
Filed under the category : Highlights Trailers

We are very lucky to film at some very impressive stately homes and gardens, but it makes a nice change to film a real urban wedding. Having a city centre wedding was not the only break with tradition that Chloe & John chose for their wedding at the Palace Hotel in Manchester. They wanted their wedding their way, a really relaxed informal and intimate celebration, but more about that later.

Chloe got ready at her father’s house with her two bridesmaids. It was a fun stress-free atmosphere, more like they were just getting ready for a girls night out then a wedding. It was a real team effort with one bridesmaid doing Chloe’s makeup and the other one styling her hair. Chloe had sourced all her suppliers from the local area including her James Flowers dress. The colour theme was a deep burgundy red, which looked lovely for the Calla lilies of Chloe’s bouquet and the bridesmaid’s dresses.

Before the ceremony John and the rest of the guests congregated in the Tempus Lounge before heading up to the Directors Suite for their late afternoon ceremony. The suite with its majestic wood panelling and ornate tiled ceiling was simply lit by lots candles and the aisle was strewn with red rose petals. Chloe & John took their personal vows in front of the impressive fireplace.

After the ceremony the guests made their way back down to the Tempus Lounge and as Chloe & John made their entrance they showered them with bubbles. As you can imagine when Chloe & John went outside the front of the Hotel for a few photos they attracted a lot of attention from the sightseers and commuters!

The wedding breakfast was in the grand Whitworth Suite. In keeping with the relaxed atmosphere there was no seating plan and guests were free to sit where and with whom they liked. A silver service buffet was then served. Before the speeches Chloe & John cut the cake. One of my favourite parts of the day was John’s speech; it had me laughing and crying simultaneously. Chloe had light heartedly warned John before the wedding not to embarrass her during his speech. He told everyone one about this warning and then proceeded to burst into a rendition of Only You, much to everyone’s amusement; it was fantastic and took some guts. Chloe also chose to give a speech and read a charming poem that summed up how she feels about John, it was incredibly moving.

Chloe & John took to the chequered dance floor for their first dance to JLS’s Love You More, the song that was number one when they first met.

Here are a few stills taken from Chloe & John’s wedding film.

The Wedding Film of Karen & Simon at Arley Hall

Posted By: Sara
Filed under the category : Highlights Trailers

The light and colours at autumnal weddings are spectacular, especially when they are at the fabulous Arley Hall & Gardens. It was also great to be working again with their lovely resident photographer; Martin Hambleton. To see some of the gorgeous images from the day check out Martin’s blog.

Karen got ready at her mum’s house a short drive from the Church where her parent’s also got married. Karen had a stunning Sassi Holford dress, I loved the sheer fabric and cap sleeves at the top of the dress which gave it the impression of a strapless dress, so elegant.

Simon proposed to Karen by hiding the ring in a box of Heroes chocolates and very romantically he had left her a box to open on the morning of the wedding. Even more romantically there was a beautiful yellow diamond ring which Karen had been admiring for a long time in there too. Proving they are made for each other, Karen had the Bestman give Simon a tin of Heroes chocolates in the pub and inside was a fabulous watch that Simon had always wanted too, how cute!

The colour scheme for the wedding was inspired by the colours of the Pancreatic Cancer charity and it was carried throughout the day from the bridesmaids dresses, the cravats, flowers to the chair cover bows. It looked spectacular, especially in the Flowers by Junes Florist Southport with highlights of shocking pink.

Before the ceremony Simon and the guests congregated at The Stanley Arms Pub just across the road from St Michael’s Church. The first wedding ceremony that the Vicar ever conducted was Karen’s parent’s wedding and he came back especially to perform Karen & Simon’s ceremony, making it even more poignant. When Karen got to the end of the aisle, as her mum under covered her face, her veil accidentally came off too, but everyone laughed, especially Simon who is quite the joker. Karen was so sweet during the ceremony and had tears streaming down her face the whole time.

After the ceremony there was a shower of confetti as they walked through the lychgate gate. It was quite a long drive to Arley Hall and Karen & Simon travelled in style in a magnificent white Bentley from People to Places. Karen & Simon made a grand entrance across the field and came through the main gates while the guests were entertained by a string quartet at the drinks reception. It was a sunny crisp autumn day and a lot of guests then made their way to the gardens and played boules and croquet on the lawn.

The wedding breakfast was in the beautiful wood panelled Drawing Room. Karen & Simon spend a lot of time commuting so the table names were named after Service Stations on the M6. The room was dressed by Amy Janes venue dressing and catering by RW Bespoke. After the emotional and funny speeches while coffee was served, Karen’s young cousin played the piano expertly, then Karen & Simon cut the cake from The Liverpool Cake Shop. Everyone then made their way from the Hall to the Olympic Barn for the evening reception along the paper lantern strewn drive, which looked magical. Karen threw her bouquet in the open barn and one of Karen’s tiny flower girls caught it with the help of her Auntie. The first dance was to 80’s classic; Nothing is going to stop us now by Starship.

The excellent Funky Doctors were there to get everyone dancing and entertained everyone until late into the night. Karen & Simon’s wedding was memorable for lots of lovely reasons and one not so palatable one. Simon is a big fan of Jägerbombs and was astonished that I had never tried one, let alone didn’t even know what one was, so before we finished for the evening he made me try one. I can safely say, never again, but thank you to Martin for my gurning face being immortalised for ever!

Here are a few stills taken from Karen & Simon’s wedding film.

The Wedding Film of Karrie & Stewart at Mottram Hall

Posted By: Sara
Filed under the category : Highlights Trailers

Karrie & Stewarts’s wedding at Mottram Hall has to be one of our most eagerly anticipated weddings of the year. Kaz & Stew booked us way back in the summer of 2010 and Kaz has been one of our biggest supporters ever since. Once their wedding is all finished I will miss chatting to Karrie about all their wedding plans!

Kaz arrived at Mottram Hall in a vintage style Imperial Landaulette from Horgans Wedding Cars. Kaz’s stunning dress was called Carrie and was designed by Maggie Sottero. Her vintage inspired look was perfectly completed with the Agnes Hart 1940s style Bridal headpiece. Her three bridesmaids dresses wore coffee coloured dresses in different styles to suit their different personalities. The flower arrangements by Laura Coleman Flowers were influenced by the countryside and included roses and tiny daisies.

The ceremony was held in the St Andrew’s Suite. Adagio Strings quartet played as Kaz was accompanied down the aisle by her dad and brother which was so lovely. Karrie & Stewart gave each other such intense loving looks during the ceremony and Kaz squealed with delight at their first kiss. Kaz’s auntie read a passage from the Velveteen Rabbit, which had everyone in tears. I think it has to be one of my favourite wedding readings and always brings to mind my old much loved ted sat at home on a shelf.

After the ceremony, while Kaz & Stew went for a little drive, there was a drinks reception in the Garden Room. All the guests then came outside to greet them upon their return and formed a confetti line. The wedding breakfast was back in the transformed St Andrews Suite. Family was a big part of the day and Kaz & Stew had setup a memories table with photographs of past generations which was really sweet. The top table was made up of all their immediate family. The speeches were first so that everyone could enjoy their meals. Funnily there was a little confusion and both Stew’s bestmen spoke before him. There was lots of laughter and tears.

Kaz & Stew cut the tiered cupcake tower and Victoria sponge cake on the dance floor just before the first dance so everyone could see. For their first dance they chose the hauntingly beautiful Only You, the Love Theme from the film The Young Victoria, by Sinead O’Connor. They had even learnt an amazing waltz which was very impressive. After the lovely serene first dance the DJ upped the temp and the dance floor filled up, we haven’t seen such fun energetic dancing in a long time. For such a long awaited day it lived up to all our expectations!

Here are a few stills taken from Karrie & Stewart’s wedding film.

The Wedding Film of Kimberley & Gareth at Peckforton Castle

Posted By: Sara
Filed under the category : Highlights Trailers

We have been very fortunate to film quite a few weddings at the fabulous Peckforton Castle in 2012. For the penultimate time this year we were back there again to film the wedding of Kimberley & Gareth or Dermot as he is known to his friends. It was also lovely to be working with Chris & Claire from Chris Hanley Photography again. To see Chris’ fabulous photographs from the day click the link to his blog. We were also working with the lovely Ken Hollett toastmaster, one of the best in the business, who kept the day running smoothly as always.

Kimberley got ready at her parent’s house with her bridesmaids and lots of Champagne. Gareth had proposed to Kimberley with a Pandora charm and as surprise he had left her a gift to open in the morning. It was a Pandora wedding cake charm with a wonderful card. For the wedding Kim had bought Gareth some socks to wear on the day which had their wedding date embroidered on one sock and ‘so you don’t get cold feet’ on the other, so as a joke Gareth bought Kim some ‘Mrs’ socks as well. Kim’s dress was designed by Alice James. Kim and her dad made their way in style to Peckforton Castle in a magnificent black Phantom Rolls Royce.

The ceremony was held in the Great Hall which had been decorated by Liverpool Florists Norwegian Wood. The inspiration for the colour scheme and all the little details of the day was Peacocks. All the floral displays had Peacock feathers in, including the buttonholes and the flowers in the bridesmaid’s hair, which beautifully complemented the jade of their dresses. There was a wonderful motif of kissing Peacocks on the table plan, table names and even on the cake. Before Kim walked down the aisle her very cute nephew walked down first, with a little help from Ken, with a sign that read ‘Here comes the bride’. Kim & Gareth couldn’t stop beaming at each other throughout the ceremony. They walked back down the aisle as husband and wife under a shower of bubbles blown by the guests. After the ceremony they went for a little drive while the guests made their way to the Coach house for the drinks reception and were entertained by a string quartet.

The wedding breakfast was in the Drawing Room, which was dressed once again with accents of jade and Peacock feathers. The speeches were emotional with a very funny best man speech and an explanation of how Gareth got his nickname. After the speeches, Chris took the opportunity to take some breath-taking images in the Wine Cellar and then some really fun shots outside with sparklers. Hipswing transformed the Great Hall for the evening reception with coloured up lighters and a sparkly LED dance floor. Singer John Norcott performed the first dance and continued with swing music. As with all our clients, Kim & Gareth chose all the music for their film and for their wedding film highlights trailer they chose a song of special meaning to them.  It is always a magical experience filming at Peckforton Castle and Kim & Dermot’s wedding was no exception!

Here are a few stills taken from Kimberley & Gareth’s wedding film.

The Wedding Film of Joanne & Adam at The Hillbark

Posted By: Sara
Filed under the category : Highlights Trailers

We love filming at the Hillbark, not only is it a beautiful and interesting building, but it has a fascinating history. Built in 1891 the design is based on Little Moreton Hall in Cheshire and is made entirely of wood and is one of the finest examples of half-timbered Victorian design anywhere in the country. Within the house are stained glass windows by William Morris, a rare Adam fireplace and a fireplace which once belonged to Sir Walter Raleigh dating back to 1627. This isn’t the building’s original location; between 1929-31 the house was taken to pieces and on the back of each section its exact location was painstakingly noted and then reassembled in Royden Park. Moving the building today would cost in the region of £40million. No wonder Joanne & Adam chose the Hillbark as their dream wedding venue!

Joanne got ready at her parent’s house just a short drive from the Hillbark with her bridesmaids and her cute god children. The ceremony was held in the impressive Great Hall with its grand fireplace and balcony. The balcony is one of the unique features of the Hillbark and makes the arrival of the bride something rather extra special. While Adam patiently waited at the front under the balcony, Joanne made her entrance on the balcony. All the guests could see Joanne and oohed and awed, which must have been torturous for Adam, but in a good way! The wait was worth it though, as when Adam eventually saw Joanne he had a beaming smile and kept telling her how amazing she looked. One of the readings was a very emotional passage from the Velveteen Rabbit that had everyone in tears, including me! The looks that Joanne and Adam gave each other throughout the ceremony were so lovely.

After the ceremony Joanne & Adam walked out into the brilliant sunshine as husband and wife through a confetti line of rose petals in fountain of the fountain. The drinks reception was on the terrace in the sun with fabulous views over the Wirral peninsula. The boys even enjoyed a spot of cricket. As you know I do love a dog at a wedding and their lovely dog Toby came along during the afternoon to have a few photos taken. He was very well behaved and stole the show.

The wedding breakfast was back in the Great Hall dressed with burnt orange Calla lilies suspending in water in tall vases. The table names were inspired by Harry Potter and the table plan was two trees decorated with crystals on either side of the entrance to the room. The fabulous wedding cake was made up of little individual cakes of white and dark chocolate sticks, filled with chocolate mousse and tied with ribbon, decorated with fresh strawberries. The speeches were one of the rowdiest and most hilarious we have ever filmed. The two best men had a very funny little double act going with synchronised speaking and props, not so sure Adam enjoyed it as much as everyone else though, as they did a good job of embarrassing him.

Another one of the things we like about the Hillbark is the transition for the guests from the day to the evening reception. The contrast from the old traditional dark wood and stained glassed interiors of the main house to the new sophisticated black interior of the marquee with the chandeliers and star cloth ceiling was great. There was a cocktail bar, casino, sweet table and music by Madison. Joanne & Adam danced to Coldplay’s Green Eyes and also chose it for their wedding film highlights trailer track. Another fabulous day!

Here are a few stills taken from Joanne & Adam’s wedding film.

The Wedding Film of Karen & Peter at Peckforton Castle

Posted By: Sara
Filed under the category : Highlights Trailers

It is always special to film at Peckforton Castle, but Karen & Peter’s wedding was just that bit extra special as we were working with so many of our very talented and lovely wedding industry friends. Also Karen had the most amazing pair of shoes; I have never seen anything like them, more on those later.

It was a pleasure to be working with the superbly talented Chris Hanley Photography. His photos never fail to dazzle; Chris’ use of light is second to none. To see Karen & Peter’s gorgeous images check out Chris’ blog. I was so excited when I heard that Mat from Red Floral Architecture was the florist as he always creates something fabulous, but nearly exploded when I found out the table centre pieces had swimming gold fish in them, I know.

Karen got ready at the Castle with her three bridesmaids and mum. Clare Golds from Perfect Face perfected the ladies makeup. Karen’s dress was by Hollywood Dreams, she brought the details together from several different dresses to create her dream dress. As I have mentioned several times, I loved Karen’s Aruna Seth shoes. A gorgeous blue that matched the colour theme for the day and they had a cute peep toe embellished with Swarovski Elements butterflies! Karen had an exquisite bouquet of elegant Calla lilies, with a bouquet tie of gorgeous pearls and jewels.

The ceremony was in the Great Hall; Peter didn’t appear nervous at all, he was even cracking jokes before Karen arrived. Craig Owen played the violin as Karen walked down the aisle. The usually very obedient Mango delivered the rings but then decided it was too far to fly back so had to be walked back up the aisle by the best man, much to everyone’s amusement. Maybe he was loathed to leave behind Karen’s spectacular diamond wedding ring!

After the ceremony the drinks reception was in the Coach house and the guests were entertained once again by Craig Owen and then the Castle’s impressive falconry display. The lovely Peter Aust toastmaster presided over the day’s events and kept everything running smoothly. The sun shone bright all day which enabled us to get some fabulous footage in the woods with the dappled light. Peter a keen photographer himself, didn’t let the fact that he was the groom stop him, all day he took the opportunity to take lots of pictures too, it was so cute seeing him taking pictures of Karen.

The wedding breakfast was in the Hexagonal room. Some of the centre pieces were over sized martini glasses filled with Calla lilies, fairy lights, blue wire and dangling crystal beads, others were huge bowls with the same decorations and live goldfish swimming around. They were a huge hit with the guests who took them home at the end of the night. Karen’s dad’s speech was very sincere and funny too, Karen is known for her incredible strength to size ratio and her Dad got her a t-shirt with ‘Might Morph’ on. Peter’s speech to Karen was so sweet that we couldn’t help but use them in their trailer.

The Great Hall was transformed with lights and a sparkling star cloth and dance floor by Hipswing Entertainments. There was a chocolate fountain and a rock band called Chicken Run. Karen & Peter now live in Dubai, so how lovely for them to have a majestic magical Castle wedding to remember!

Here are a few stills taken from Karen & Peter’s wedding film.

The Wedding Film of Sally & David at The Inn at Whitewell

Posted By: Sara
Filed under the category : Highlights Trailers

The backdrop for Sally & David’s wedding couldn’t have been more picturesque. The Inn at Whitewell looks out over the River Hodder and the Lancashire moorlands. Admittedly it would have been better if it hadn’t rained nearly all day, but it was stunning nevertheless. Sally got ready with her three bridesmaids and mum upstairs at the Inn, while David was downstairs in the bar with his grooms men. Sally’s gorgeous dress was designed by Suzanne Neville and she wore sparkly Benjamin Adams shoes, which matched her exquisite Tiffany diamond necklace.

The Church was a very short walk just next door, so there was no chance of anyone getting caught in traffic. The church was beautifully decorated everywhere with country flowers by Floral Design, which really suited and complimented the setting. As soon as Sally & David saw each other they started to cry and continued to cry and laugh all the way through the ceremony.

It was then a short walk back to the Inn for the wedding breakfast in the marquee at the side of the Inn. Again it was filled with exquisite flowers and fairy lights and looked enchanting. The table plan was really original; a wicker hamper with wooden love hearts for the table names and fitted in with the country theme.

The speeches were very funny and had a lot more tears. Sally’s mum had a musical cake slice that played the wedding march which she has been waiting years to play. The best man had lots of embarrassing picture of David dressed in womens clothes from the stag do and a very fun email that David wrote about Sally after they first got together.

After the speeches Sally & David cut the cake and the band Rough Hill played the first dance. A really lovely day with lots of emotion in a scenic location, who could ask for anything more.

Here are a few stills taken from Sally & David’s wedding film.

The Wedding Film of Liz & Fran at The Hard Days Night Hotel, Liverpool

Posted By: Sara
Filed under the category : Highlights Trailers

Liz & Fran weren’t originally going to have a wedding film until they saw the film we created for their good friends Elizabeth & Neil. Liz & Fran chose to have a cool retro chic urban wedding with a black and white colour scheme. Liz designed her own wedding dress and drew her inspiration from many different areas including Kate Middleton’s wedding dress and their love of the 60’s. I love how her dress was knee length with a short veil that perfectly suited the theme of the day. She added a modern twist with her Vivienne Westwood Melissa shoes which had ‘I Do’ written in blue crystals on the bottom.

Liz got ready at her parent’s house who had decorated the entire house with childhood pictures of Liz. They even had all their old videos converted to DVD, playing special moments from her birthday’s and Christmas’ through the years. While Liz was getting ready the family all got together to have a family meal, which was really sweet and a precious moment in the normal hectic wedding day morning preparations. All the bridesmaids gathered at the house for champagne before heading off to the Church.

The ceremony was held at All Saints Church in Childwall, which is a Grade I listed building and is the only medieval church remaining in Liverpool. Fran was so nervous waiting at the altar, but his reaction was so lovely when he first caught sight of Liz walking down the aisle to  The Beatles – Here, There And Everywhere, he broken into a beaming smile and exclaimed wow. They couldn’t stop looking at each and smiling all the way through the ceremony. After they had exchanged their vows and kissed, Fran punched the air and he even did it again when they walked back down the aisle. After the ceremony Liz & Fran made their way down a confetti line to the Village Hall for afternoon tea.

While all the guests travelled to the Hard Days Night Hotel in Liverpool city centre on a vintage bus for a drinks reception in Harri’s Bar, Liz & Fran went via Penny Lane for some photographs at the iconic sign.

Liz & Fran were spending their wedding night in the John Lennon suite, so while the guests were entertained by Fran’s brother Alex singing, they had some shots taken playing the replica of his famous white piano and on the balcony overlooking the city’s famous landmarks.

The wedding breakfast was served in the Zygmant Suite. The black and white colour scheme looked great with all the mirrors and images of The Beatles. The two best men really laid into Fran during their speech and he spent most of their slide show presentation hiding his embarrassment under a napkin. After the speeches it was straight into a very emotional first dance. Then the tunes kicked in and the dance floor went crazy. They couldn’t have their wedding reception at the Hard Days Night Hotel and not have a nod to The Beatles, so the evening entertainment was a Beatles tribute band; The Cheatles. There was also a photo booth with props.

We have been very fortunate to film all types of different weddings this year and Liz & Fran’s retro chic urban wedding was extra special!

Here are a few stills taken from Liz & Fran’s wedding film.
