Believe it or not, some people won’t film their friends weddings.

Me, I LOVE it. I can’t help myself! I love to film weddings!

I get to be in all the action with my wedding camera, blend in even more so than normal, capture really natural moments because they forget I came with said camera and get to chat to my friends as I work.

I guess it helps that I love being a wedding videographer and love the fact that they want me to film their wedding for them!

Well, this is the beautiful wedding video of our good friends Amy and Ash…

Amy and Ash – A Wedding Video in Burscough, Lancashire

A Wedding Morning in Burscough

For Amy and Ash’s day the excitement was brewing as soon as they booked me to be their wedding videographer!

We got to chat weddings every time we caught up (as their daughter Eva is the same age as our daughter Paisley we had a lot of play dates during that time!).

Their day started in sunny Burscough for the boys and over at Amy’s parents house in Holmeswood (near Rufford, Lancashire) for the girls.

Lots of chilling in the garden with bacon butties for Ash and fizz and make-up for the Amy and the girls (I do love the contrast seeing both sides of the wedding morning on video)!

On hand for hair and make-up were the super talented Lynn Isherwood hair from Burscough and Olivier Disley.

It was soon time for everyone to get their wedding gear on!

The boys made their way over to St John’s Church in Burscough as the girls were getting in to pale lilac (maybe mauve?) bridesmaids dresses ready for the wedding car to arrive…

A Burscough Wedding Ceremony and A Slightly Late Bride…

It was so cute to see Amy get Eva dressed, she even tried on her Mum’s wedding shoes before asking to put her own on.

As soon as everyone else was ready it was time for Amy’s Mum to help Amy in to her wedding dress (you can sense the nervous anticipation in the video, can’t you??).

Amy was running a little late so poor Ash had to pretend not to be nervous at the front of the church with all the guests looking back at him.

But, it was worth the wait as she looked incredible stepping out the car to the awaiting crowd outside St John’s Church in Burscough (I love local weddings for this, all the locals come out to watch the Bride arrive and wave her off!).

Amy glided down the aisle with her bridesmaids and they both greeted each other with a huge grin (Amy even said ‘you okay?’) before their Priest David started the wedding ceremony.

Wedding vows were made, rings were exchanged and as they signed the register guests were treated to a fun slideshow video of some of their favourite moments of their lives so far (happy to say Paisley and I featured licking cake mix off spoons with Eva and Amy haha).

They had so many fun photos to share they even got to sit and enjoy the very end of it!

They were soon making their way down the aisle and out in to the Lancashire sunshine as husband and wife.

Wedding Photos, Confetti and Some Cute Couples Video…

Laura Wade (of Laura Wade Photography fame, she’s amazing if you’re looking for a local wedding photographer too) took over and began organising the group shots outside the big green doors at St John’s Church.

It may’ve been sunny but that wind still liked to blow Amy’s veil in to unsuspecting faces.

I LOVED her sisters reaction every time haha. Great for adding to their wedding video!

She ticked them all off the list before getting guests in line for the epic confetti walk to the car.

Laura and I then dashed off to meet the newlyweds on the country lanes on the back roads from Burscough to get some relaxed couples shots by the green fields before they returned to their guests.

A Blue Mallard Wedding Reception

Everyone was waiting out in the courtyard at Burscough Wharf to cheer them in as they arrived.

The weather was so glorious everyone stayed outside to enjoy the canapes before being called in to be seated for the wedding breakfast taking place at The Blue Mallard.

The food was incredible (as always) and as everyone was getting a bit stuffed they swiftly moved the wedding speeches!

Not forgetting the Mr and Mrs quiz too which they started after the mains to give everyone a breather.

Dad, Ash and the Best Man did well on keeping their speeches personal with the perfect blend of heartfelt and fun.

Even Ash had to fight back the tears at one point, which then had everyone else fighting back the tears (especially when his son Harley tried to comfort him!).

A Summer Wedding In Burscough

Once everyone had enjoyed their dessert is was back outside to enjoy the May summer weather (and the football, but we don’t talk about that).

As the light was SO beautiful it would be rude not to do something with it so Laura and I gently persuaded them (it didn’t take much) to take a stroll down the canal and enjoy some couple time.

The best bit of this was having the lovely canal boat owners let us all climb on board to get some shots of them on the canal with the sun setting behind them!

Their first dance was to Ed Sheeran and little Eva Dis decided the song was too good to let Mummy and Daddy dance on their own so joined them on the dancefloor at one point.

The DJ from Dancefloor Couture soon mixed their first dance in to something a little faster and guests joined them on the floor to show off some of their best moves.

It was soon time for me to pack the video camera away and show off some moves of my own, thankfully no-one managed to catch those on camera…
