The Wedding Film of Helen & Andrew at Soughton Hall

Posted By: Sara
Filed under the category : Highlights Trailers

We were really looking forward to Helen & Andy’s wedding at Soughton Hall because 5 years ago we filmed Andy’s brother’s wedding at Mere Court. This time around, Paul was the bestman and Kathryn a bridesmaid. It was also really lovely to see both sets of families again.

The snow might have looked magical and added something extra special with the blue skies and brilliant sunshine, but it also caused a few problems. The week before the wedding the weight of the snow had caused the existing marquee at Soughton Hall to collapse and they feared they might have to switch venues. Much to Helen & Andy’s relief Soughton Hall managed to organise a new marquee. Unfortunately the vintage London bus Helen & Andy had booked to transport the guests in style couldn’t get down the long drive way because of the snow laden trees, but it did give the guest the opportunity to take in the stunning views of the Hall.

Helen and her bridesmaids got ready at the spectacular Soughton Hall with Helen’s friend doing the hair and makeup by Makeup by Laura. Helen chose an astonishing Justin Alexander dress covered in lace from Puure Bride in Lymm which she teamed with beautiful nude Christian Louboutin peep toe heels. For good luck and her something blue, Helen’s mum sewed the very same little blue bow that was originally in her wedding dress into the bottom of Helen’s dress. The colour scheme for the vintage inspired wedding was an elegant cool grey; the bridesmaids wore three quarter length dresses with matching sparkly grey heels. The guy’s dapper suits were all from Groom.

The boys arrived at St Eurgain & St Peters Church on the London bus and went to wait in the pub across the road. As a wedding gift Helen had bought Andy an engraved Tiffany money clip. The rest of the guests were then collected on the bus. Helen arrived in a vintage grey Rolls Royce from Platinum wedding cars. The Church was decorated with baby’s breath which was also in all the buttonholes, corsages and bridesmaids bouquets. Andy just about held it together as the Thackeray string trio played as Helen walked down the aisle. Helen cried during her vows, but got through them with Andy’s help. I love the looks and beaming smiles they gave to each other during the ceremony.

After the confetti was thrown, it was a short drive on the London bus back to Soughton Hall where there was a drinks reception in the walled garden in the glorious sunshine, while Thackeray string trio played once again. The marquee for the wedding breakfast looked enchanting due to all the time and effort Helen had put into finding all the little objects and touches, including a wishing tree, post box, cigars for the boys and a whole table filled with Barratts sweets (the family name) in vintage sweet jars. The flowers were by The Green Room Flower Emporium. Andy’s sister made all the bunting that decorated the marquee and the really cute wedding cake; you wouldn’t believe she doesn’t do it for a living. During the wedding breakfast the very talented Gillan Edgar kept everyone entertained.

It was such a beautiful evening that after the speeches the photographers Richard & Verity from Cetra Photography took Helen & Andy into the garden for a few photos. The sunset and snow looked marvellous and Helen even had a quick go on the swing until Andy accidently nearly tipped her off. It was then back inside for the cutting of the cake and first dance which was to James Morrison’s I Won’t Let Go. Gillan Edgar and his band then got everyone dancing the night away. We really hope you enjoy Helen & Andy’s wedding film highlights trailer at Soughton Hall.

Here are a few stills taken from Helen & Andrew’s wedding film at Soughton Hall.

The Wedding Film of Tina & Gareth at Peckforton Castle

Posted By: Sara
Filed under the category : Highlights Trailers

We met Tina & Gareth at the Peckforton Castle wedding fair, but we actually only live two minutes away from each other in Padgate. Not only was it great to be back at the magical Peckforton Castle; but also to be working with so many excellent suppliers who we have had the pleasure of working with before including Caroline White Photography and toastmaster Stephen Sanders.

Tina and her bridesmaids got ready at the Castle, with the fabulous ladies from Flossy & Leigh Make-Up Artist Company making everyone look gorgeous. Tina’s exquisite hair accessory and the bridesmaids jewelled flower hair clips were made by the lovely Eleventh Heaven by Ann McKavney. Tina’s beautiful beaded bodice Hollywood Dreams dress was from The Wedding Shop Alderley Edge which she teamed with an elegant pair of white satin Jimmy Choo shoes. The bridesmaids all wore handmade ivory dresses and Gareth wore a dapper Phillip Alexander suit. It was really emotional when Tina’s dad saw her for the first time and a really special moment to capture on film. Just before they walked downstairs Tina’s dad put a sixpence in her shoe for good luck.

All the guests were waiting in the sunshine to watch Gareth and his bestman make their arrival by helicopter and land on the lawn within the Castle walls. We gave him a tiny camera so he could capture all the action, which showed the Castle in its spectacular setting on the hill overlooking Peckforton. The arch outside and The Great Hall looked magnificent decorated in lashings of luxurious white roses and orchids by the incredibly talented Red Floral Architecture. The bouquets were all white roses too but Tina’s was decorated with jewels to match her hair piece.

The Caldara String Quartet played as Tina walked down the aisle. I love how couples look at each during the vows it always gives me butterflies in my stomach. Tina & Gareth were all smiles during the service. After the ceremony they greeted their guests then strolled over to the Chapel for the blessing with a candle lighting ceremony. After the blessing there was a drinks reception in the sun outside the Coach House and the guests were entertained by the Caldara String Quartet and then the Peckforton Castle Falconry display.

The wedding breakfast was in the Drawing Room were Red Floral Architecture had added delicate glass baubles with candles to the sumptuous white roses centre pieces. The sitting plan and nameplates were by I Do Designs. The speeches were very funny, especially the bestman’s as we got to hear all about Gareth’s alter ego Gary and his drunken escapades, much to Gareth’s embarrassment!

The evening reception was in the Great Hall were Hipswing Entertainment provided the LED dance floor, lighting and DJ. Before the first dance which was to Fleetwood Mac’s Songbird; Tina & Gareth’s cut the cake made by one of the family. After the first dance Tina then had a dance with her dad which never fails to bring a tear to my eye and was another very special moment. The band The Versions then kicked off the dancing. We really hope you enjoy Tina & Gareth’s wedding film highlights trailer at Peckforton Castle.

Here are a few stills taken from Tina & Gareth’s wedding film at Peckforton Castle.

The Wedding Film of Victoria & Adam at Peckforton Castle

Posted By: Sara
Filed under the category : Highlights Trailers

It was great to be back at the magnificent Peckforton Castle for the first time this year and what a day it was. It was a beautiful crisp March day, with blue skies, brilliant sunshine and a little bit of snow on the ground. It was also an extra special day as it was Victoria’s parents wedding anniversary too.

Victoria’s pretty Justin Alexander dress was from Puure Bride in Lymm. As was the groom’s, usher’s suits and the bridesmaid’s dresses. Hair by James tamed the ladies tresses and they had their makeup applied in the Castle’s Tranquillity Spa. Toastmaster Peter Aust was the consummate professional and directed the day’s proceedings with his usual flair.

The Great Hall looked lovely bedecked in the purple colour scheme by Black Cat Floral Design. Adam was very nervous as Victoria walked down the aisle. He fluffed his lines and made Victoria and everyone and laugh. Mango the owl delivered the rings, he was so content on the best man’s arm that it took quite a lot of coaxing to get him to fly back, which everyone found very  funny. After the ceremony there was just time for a quick group shot before everyone headed over to the Castle’s quaint Chapel for the Blessing.

The wedding breakfast was in the Hexagonal room. Victoria very creatively made all the invites, table planner and table names. Declan the bestman is known for liking a drink and so Adam give a a huge glass boot filled with beer. After the speeches Victoria & Adam cut the cake which was made by a friend. As it was a lovely evening they took the opportunity to have some photos taken with the Castle impressively lit up in the background.

Hipswing Entertainment transformed the Great Hall for the evening reception with an LED dance floor and atmospheric lighting which really added to the mood of their first dance which was to Chantal Kreniazuk’s Feels Like Home. We don’t normally include the footage we get after the first dance in the wedding film highlights trailer, but the dancing was just too good not to include. It was like a 70’s disco dance off between the guys! We really hope you enjoy Victoria & Adam’s wedding film highlights trailer at Peckforton Castle.

Here are a few stills taken from Victoria & Adam’s wedding film at Peckforton Castle.
