This is up there with one of my all time favourite winter wedding videos I have ever filmed and edited.

Relaxed and welcoming family and friends, a gorgeous and very happy bride and groom, beautiful church and Cheshire countryside wedding venue…

AND we even finished with a spectacular sunset during our couples portraits in the beautifully manicured grounds of this stunning Cheshire country house (something we only really get to do in winter thanks to an early sunset!).

Make a cup of tea, take a seat and enjoy Emma and Alistair’s beautiful¬†Willington Hall wedding highlights video…

Emma and Alistair’s Willington Hall Wedding Video – Wedding Videographer Cheshire

A Winter Wedding – Filming You Getting Ready!

As their wedding videographer I started the day at Emma’s parents beautiful house in Hatton in Cheshire.

The sun was streaming through the windows, the ‘red’ carpet was being laid out in anticipation of the wedding cars arrival and the professional hair and make-up artists were working on getting everyone beautified.

Alistair (The Groom) and his wedding party were already dressed and ready waiting at a local pub as my camera assistant filmed away.

They enjoying some darts and a few pints before their Horgans wedding bus picked them up.

You may even recognise Alistair as he played an important role in a previous wedding I have filmed… (his sister was recently married over in Manchester Town Hall).

As the boys made their way to St John’s Church in High Legh for the wedding ceremony Emma was getting in to her amazing backless wedding dress with help from her Mum.

I LOVED being able to capture this part as her Mum was so excited for her in her wedding dress and had to fight back the tears once the veil was on.

Then when Dad came in and gave the sweetest ‘eek’, well I was bubbling with excitement then too!

The bridesmaids gave an award winning reaction and had to dab their tears away to avoid ruining their professional make-up and then I was soon racing ahead to capture their arrival at the church in High Legh.

A Relaxed Wedding Ceremony at St John’s Church in High Legh, Cheshire

It was like a summers day as guests took to their seats inside the historic St John’s Church in High Legh.

Alistair joked about her being late and kept checking his watch as family took photos.

We soon heard the horn of the wedding cars and Emma looked picture perfect as she gracefully stepped out of the car in to the Cheshire sunshine.

Their Reverend, Trish, was all smiles and invited everyone to stand as Emma floated down the aisle towards her Groom.

This moment is one that comes with the most pressure. I feel it’s one of those moments we go on to value the most after the wedding and it’s one I put a lot of pressure on myself as a wedding videographer to capture!

The service was really fun and personal, they even had some thoughtful gifts to open (including rolo’s and a clock…) that linked to Trish’s advice that she was giving out which made everyone smile.

Rings and vows were exchanged and they were soon announced as husband and wife before making their way back out in to that gorgeous winter sunshine.

Their wedding photographer, Jason Howard, got all the guests outside on the lawn for the group photographs before organising a confetti shot to lead them to the awaiting wedding car.

A Winter Wedding Reception at Willington Hall

Willington Hall Hotel is an amazing estate not far from Delemere forest in Cheshire and I can see why they chose it for their relaxed, countryside wedding reception.

Guests arrived at Willington Hall and were welcomed by champagne and a very helpful wedding co-ordinator Michele.

They also got to enjoy the sunshine on the patio and surrounding gardens while Jason and I sneaked the couple off for some couple portraits.

Alistair spent a lot of the time trying to unhook Emma’s dress from the surrounding shrubs (perfect for their up and coming outtakes film) at the start but they were soon posing like pros as we made it in to less overgrown parts of the gardens!

Funny and Heartwarming Wedding Speeches at Willington Hall

The wedding breakfast room looked beautiful with the splashes of vibrant orange and cream in the wedding flower arrangements.

Emma and Alistair were announced in to a huge applause before getting to enjoy the speeches before their meal (this is quite common for those who have nervous speakers!).

Dad did a good job at embarrassing Emma and even got her to cry by saying some lovely things about her.

Poor Alistair had to follow that but did really well and shared one of my favourite engagement stories to date (it’s the way he told it, you’d need to see their full wedding video feature!) and got everyone in the room laughing.

The Best Man followed with some funny stories from the past and made him squirm a few times before everyone got to chill out and enjoy their 3 course meal in the main hall at Willington Hall.

Relaxed Couple Portraits During A Winter Sunset at Willington Hall

The sun started setting behind the trees at Willngton Hall just before desserts came out but that didn’t stop Emma and Alistair nipping out for some more couple photographs as the sky turned a vibrant red.

This part made for some funny outtakes as Alistair tried not to trip on Emma’s dress and shared how he’s not actually tried to break his shoes in before the wedding!

We then left them in peace to enjoy their dessert while we enjoyed a lovely meal they’d arranged for us.

All refuelled we then had the fun task of capturing some messages for the happy couple at their request before guests were then escorted back in to the main room to see the wedding cake being cut and then on to their first dance…
