Wedding marquee at farm in Cheshire

Cheshire Farm Marquee Wedding – Kate and Andrew

Marquee Wedding

We seem to do a lot of farmer’s weddings, especially in the Cheshire area. Most couples tend to choose a hotel or specialist wedding venue (such as the Oak Tree of Peover) for their reception. But farmers tend to have another option, due to having so much more land available. They can have a marquee in one of their fields. This in turn means that the wedding tends to be larger, they’re not limited by the venue. This all results in some truly awesome weddings, just like Kate and Andrew’s: Read More

Destination wedding video in Ireland

Castle Court Hotel Westport – Karen & Alan’s Irish Destination Wedding

Destination Wedding Videography in Ireland

With two school age kids, destination weddings are not practical for us to do very often. But when Karen and Alan got in touch to ask if we could photograph and film their big day in at the Castle Court Hotel in Westport, Ireland, we couldn’t resist it. Karen grew up in the tiny village of Ballycroy, which is on the remote west coast of Ireland. The scenery, both rugged and beautiful, is very different to even hilly parts of England. But with regular flights from Liverpool to Knock airport it’s actually very accessible and affordable for a weekend break. We’ll definitely be back, either for leisure or maybe another wedding if the opportunity arrises. Read More

Gamekeeper's Inn Wedding Video - Confetti

Gamekeeper’s Inn Wedding Video – Scarlett & Rob’s Same Day Edit

Same Day Edit Films

I love seeing peoples reactions to seeing their wedding video in the evening. Scarlett and Rob’s wedding at the Gamekeeper’s Inn was a great example of this, the bride was in tears within a few seconds of the film starting, followed by laughter, smiles and more tears as the film carried on. I started the film with a short clip from her father’s speech. He had mentioned to me before the ceremony how emotional he felt about giving his daughter away, and that really came across in the speech, a lovely moment captured:

Stirk House Wedding - Bride and groom walking in gardens

Stirk House Wedding Video – Leah and Jonathon’s Same Day Edit Film

Same Day Edit Film

I’ve been filming weddings since 2007, and started offering Same Day Edit videography a few years ago. It’s my favourite package, to be honest, it’s so nice to see the bride and groom enjoying their film in the evening with all their guests. Leah and Jonathon chose to have a Same Day Edit film for their Stirk House wedding yesterday in Lancashire (the same day Harry and Meghan got married). So here it is:

De Vere Cranage Estate Cheshire Wedding Film – Luci & Ben

Cranage Estate Hotel Videography

It’s been several years since I last produced a wedding video at the De Vere Cranage Estate. So it was actually lovely to be back there to film Luci and Ben’s big day. Situated near Holmes Chapel, the hotel is in one of the most lovely and desirable parts of Cheshire. Formerly the country seat of the Armistead family, it is still very much a rural retreat.

Bride and Groom having a romantic walk at Colshaw Hall in Cheshire

Colshaw Hall Wedding Videographer – Lucy and Thomas in Cheshire

Colshaw Hall in Cheshire

I filmed Lucy and Thomas’s wedding at Colshaw Hall, a magnificent Tudor style manor house. Located in Over Peover, it’s in the heart of the Cheshire countryside. The hall, originally built in 1903 for the Peel Family, is a listed building with English Heritage. During the 20th century, a fire outbreak damaged the house, and it fell into some disrepair. In 2002, however, the Irlam family made it their home, and restored it to its former glory, adding the Peel Suite and Stables where much of this film was recorded. Read More

Happy couple having a romantic walk through the gardens at Nunsmere Hall

Nunsmere Hall Wedding Video Cheshire – Chelsea & Ryan

Nunsmere Hall Wedding Videography

Nunsmere Hall, and it’s sister hotel, Peckforton Castle, are two of the premier wedding venues in Cheshire. Both are quite spectacular, and as a relatively local videographer I’ve filmed marriages at each of them many times over the years. Nunsmere is bounded on three sides by a magnificent 60-acre lake, so it’s a very secluded setting. The hotel can be booked exclusively for weddings, and has a huge permanent marquee that can accommodate up to 600 guests, so it’s ideal for larger celebrations. Read More

Wedding videography at Sheldrakes restaurant on the Wirral

Sheldrakes Wedding Video Wirral – Stef & Ben’s Same Day Edit Film

Wedding Videographer – Sheldrakes on the Wirral

Sheldrakes Wedding Videographer Wirral – This is a gorgeous venue. It’s really unique as there aren’t any other venues along this stretch of shoreline along the Dee estuary. The romantic vista of welsh mountains and great-taking sunsets are magnificent as you can see in this video. Sheldrakes restaurant was originally the Dee Sailing Club, but after they moved in the early 80s, it bacame a restaurant. Previously known as the ‘shack on the beach’, owner Helen Demetrios has done a magnificent job of restoring it over the last few years. Read More
