Lanzarote Persian Wedding - Afsaneh and Keywan

When it was cold, wet and rainy in England we were lucky enough to take the trip over to Lanzarote and be showered by sun...all thanks to Afanseh & Keywan who wisely decided that Lanzarote would be a better place to get married in January than Britain! 

We were joined by Cris Matthews Photography, who is not only a great friend but an amazing award winning Yorkshire based photographer. 

Afsaneh and Keywan booked an amazing venue that had its own private beach and invited their closest friends and family. 

Highlights of the day for me was Michael Jackson tribute that played/performed during the reception and Afanseh and Keywans surprise first dance that was a fully choreographed montage of dance songs.

Thank you Afsaneh and Keywan for choosing Lenik Wedding Cinematography to create your wedding video

Hope you like it! 

Nicki & Simon's Jersey Wedding

Earlier this year we had the pleasure of taking the long trip to Jersey in the Channel Island's to film the wedding of Nicki & Simon and what as wedding!

Nicki has worked in the music industry for many years and some of that had been on music videos so i was very flattered when she loved my work and was willing to pay the extra money to get me over to Jersey.

It was my first visit to Jersey and was really impressed by the scenery and architecture which was a real mix of British and French.

Nicki and Simon's wedding oozed class, especially when it came to the food with Oysters and Scallops being served during the drinks reception cooked fresh in front of the guests. 

What i loved about Nicki and Simon was that they are genuinely lovely people who have a real strong bond with their family and friends, also they have a lovely back story. Nicki and Simon first met when they were teenagers and were each others first love. Nicki then left the country to pursue her career and they split up and went their separate ways.

Many years past but eventually they reunited and are now married..

Below is the wedding video highlights film i created, I hope you like it!

Yelena & Andrei - London Love Story

We were recently contact by a lovely Russian couple living in London to film a "Love Story" film of them both in London, shooting in locations that had special meaning to them, some obvious...some not (one even being a cash machine!). They wanted a pop video style film to show at their wedding which is taking place in Belarus and Kazakhstan.  

They provided me with a brief running idea of the story they wanted to tell, i then set about creating a shot list for the days filming. We had a full schedule starting with me filming an over night time lapse looking over the o2 arena from my hotel room.

We started shooting the next day at 9am and didn't finish until 8pm that evening. Locations included a river ride down the Thames, Trafalgar Square, Granary Wharf, Leicester Square, The London Underground a bus ride and a Cash Machine!

Hope you like it! 

Katie & David - Hazlewood Castle

Here we have a lovely Christmas wedding video filmed at the stunning Hazlewood castle near York in North Yorkshire. 

It was a real pleasure to be asked to film Katie and David's wedding who were referred to me by their friends whose wedding I filmed a year earlier. 

With the wedding being just before Christmas the castle was full of decorations and Christmas tree's which really added to the magic of the day.

The wedding started out with a legal civil ceremony with the main religious ceremony taking place in the church within the grounds of Hazlewood Castle .

Photographing on the day was the very talented Chris Chambers, whom I have worked with on numerous occasions, a lovely man and great photographer.

Enough talking now......here is the highlights video! 

 

 

Sledmere House - A Lovely Love Story

Today we have the lovely wedding video of Robin and Anna Breese-Davis filmed at Sledmere House. What an amazing wedding is was! Robin and Anna are two of the lovliest couples I have had to pleasure to film. From the moment I arrived I felt like I had known them for years.

Working with me on the day was the amazing wedding photographer Annemarie King and her assistant Hamish. Annemarie recommended me to Robin and Anna (thanks Annemarie!) and she was amazing to work with.

My favourite bits from this wedding are...the speeches, the cake and that the evening party was held in the local pub, very cool idea! 

This is definitely one of my best wedding edits to date so please take a few moments to watch the videos:

Here is the 30 minute Cinematic Movie.
