Fran and Will's Wedding (3 Albion Place - Leeds)

After travelling to Scotland, London and more recently, Geneva to film weddings it was nice to actually get to film one in my home town of leeds. Fran and Will live in Chapel Allerton in Leeds which is only 5 mins from my mums house so felt very local. The wedding reception was held at city centre venue 3 Albion Place. It was a great wedding made even more special because Will is a huge Leeds United supporter (like myself!). You can see Will and Fran are very happy together however its wasnt written in the stars as Fran was a Manchester United fan, thankfully Will managed to get Fran to switch loyalties and become a Leeds Fan!

Continuing on tradition from our previous post we are now showing you the full edited main wedding movie as well as the highlights video so you get a better idea of what your final product will be like.

On this shoot their was myself and my sister Gemma working as camera operators. We used 3 cameras where possible (ceremony, speeches, first dance). We also used the glidetrack as well as radio mics, video lights etc....

Hope you enjoy watching the wedding videos and please leave your comments!

Stephen + Louise Wedding Highlights - Ireland

Today I have a wedding I filmed in Northern (and Southern) Ireland. Its the wedding video of Stephen Simpson and Louise Feeney. I can loosely call it a destination wedding as I had to travel across the water by Ferry to get there! Really enjoyed filming this wedding, especially as it was my first time in Ireland, it really is a beautiful country. Louise and Stephen are a really lovely couple, they went out of their way to make sure I was looked and I felt really welcomed.

The wedding started off at Louise's parents house in Northern Ireland, then onto the Catholic wedding ceremony, we then travelled to Southern Ireland for the wedding reception.

I hope you all like it!

Hillbark Hotel, Wedding Video Highlights - Geoff & Louise

Happy midweek.....! Have a great new wedding video to show you all, definately one of my favourites to date. This is the wedding video highlights of Geoff & Louise Askins. The wedding took place at 'Hillbark Hotel' in the Wirral. This was a full day wedding starting with the Bride's Prep at Louise's parents house going right through to 10.30pm at the night...a long day but loved it! We were fortunate to be working with good friend and wedding photographer Cris Matthews. Cris is really passionate about his work and it definately shows, his off camera flash work is amazing so please take a look at his website if you are looking for a photographer for your wedding.

We had a bit of bad luck with the weather right at the moment we wanted to do the Bride and Groom Shots so we had to postpone them until after the dinner.....only thing was it was used it to our advantage and did a night time shoot, i had my light and Cris had his flash, this turned out to be a bit of good luck as the final result looked stunning, the night shots definately gave the video another edge...

anyway hope you enjoy watching the wedding video highlights!
