The golden light at autumn weddings makes it one of my favourite times of the year to shoot and we were blessed with such wonderful weather for Laura & John’s beautiful Thornton Manor wedding. My favourite part of the day was John’s crazy high kicks, which he had warned us about beforehand and  their first dance which was them just having fun to an upbeat old 80’s song I hadn’t heard before, but now love; Stephanie Mills – Never Knew Love Like This Before.

It was lovely once again to shoot alongside the fabulous Zoe and Joel from Zoe Photography.

We really hope you enjoy Laura & John’s wedding film highlights trailer at Thornton Manor.

Here are a few stills taken from Laura & John’s wedding film at Thornton Manor.

The Wedding Film of Bryony & Mark at Rudding Park

Posted By: Sara
Filed under the category : Highlights Trailers

Manolo Blahnik shoes have a very special place in Bryony’s heart, I love that when Mark proposed in New York the very next day she bought the two pairs of shoes she wore for her wedding day, in fact the evening pair of gorgeous royal blue silk heels dictated the colour scheme for the whole wedding. Of course if you have two pairs of Manolo Blahnik’s you have to have two wedding dresses and Bryony looked beautiful and effortlessly elegant in both. Not to be out done Mark had a very dashing pair of Pradas, Tony and I both had serious shoes envy! One of my favourite things about Bryony & Mark’s wedding was that Mark’s childhood friend co-hosted the wedding service; his sermon was the prefect balance of very funny and touchingly personal. It is always great to be working with fabulous professionals who you respect and have worked with many times before; and the whole day was made even more fun working with Zoe Photography and So Coco Rouge.

We really hope you enjoy Bryony & Mark’s wedding film highlights trailer at Rudding Park.

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 Emma & Aron at The Isla Gladstone Conservatory

Posted By: Sara
Filed under the category : Highlights Trailers

Last year we were honoured to be asked to be part of the judging panel for the Liverpool Echo Bride of the Year Competition 2012. The lucky winner was Emma, who married Aron at the beautifully restored Isla Gladstone Conservatory in Stanley Park in Liverpool.

The fabulous ladies; Sian and Robyn from So Coco Rouge expertly created Emma and the bridesmaid’s hair and makeup looks at Emma’s house. We captured one of my favourite bridal preparation scenes of the year so far when we filmed Emma’s dress next to a quote on their bedroom wall: “Every love story is wonderful but, ours is my favourite”. How prefect is that, we couldn’t have set it up any better! Emma also wore a gorgeous Rocks For Frocks diamante headpiece that perfectly complemented the detail on her dress. Emma had chosen a hot pink colour scheme and the cerise Gerberas beautifully contrasted the bridesmaid’s elegant black Coast dresses.

The Isla Galdstone was a very short drive round the corner and the weather was fabulous, so Emma & Aron were able to have their dream ceremony outside under the magnificent Victorian bandstand. Having the ceremony outside gave Emma and her dad a spectacular entrance as they had to walk down the impressive stone staircase to the bandstand with everyone gazing up. I was a little worried; a nervous bride, big dress, new high heels and very high stairs, but I needn’t have worried as her dad wasn’t letting go of her until he gave her hand to Aron. Emma & Aron both laughed and cried their way through the ceremony and didn’t stop laughing and joking all day long.

It was so sweet that everyone in the park stopped to watch the ceremony and were respectfully quiet during the ceremony and even clapped as they kissed. It was also lovely to go into Stanley Park with our good friend and respected colleague Zoe Richards, from Zoe Photography to film the couple photographs, who we love working with. We got some great footage with the sweeping parkland as the background.

The evening reception took place under the setting sun which looked fabulous through the conservatory panes, creating a really special atmosphere for the first dance and then an emotional dance between Emma and her dad! A really lovely day all round and a real pleasure to capture.

Here are a few stills taken from Emma & Aron’s wedding film.
