They do say it’s harder to untie a wet knot than a dry not so any wedding with torrential rain must be a very lucky wedding-I should know, it hammered down on our day too! They were married early at St Joseph’ Church before dashing off to Mere Court Hotel in Cheshire and it was the sweetest day full of smiles and lots of happy tears. “Just watched our wedding highlights video it’s amazing – brought tears to my eyes…

Erica Stacey Wedding Designer Promo Video

Back in January not only did I get to showcase our work at the prestigious Wedding Link Tatton Wedding Show but I also finally got to meet Erica Stacey and her team! I’d spent a while chatting with them on Twitter, as I do with quite a few North West wedding suppliers, so it was great to finally meet them in person. I fell completely head over heels for Erica’s designs (and even Erica Stacey, Terry and Jan, they’re so…

A Groom’s Wedding Film

It’s important to remember the Groom when planning your big day. I guess I was lucky (or unlucky in some Bride’s eyes) that I had a Groom that wanted to help plan the wedding. Not just nod approval at the colour scheme, actually pick the colour scheme-yes, he did choose the Bridesmaid dress colours-and he did a great job too! Some Grooms don’t want to be involved and the Bride’s relish the opportunity to make their wedding day perfect for…

Wedding Magazine Inspiration

I remember when I started my wedding planning and the first thing I did was buy a nice collection of wedding magazine. There’s nothing more exciting than cutting out all those stunning images and building up a picture of your ideal wedding. I actually still have my original mood board, I just couldn’t bear to throw it away! Because I remember that feeling of being inspired by real weddings and gorgeous inspiration shoots I really enjoy being part of wedding…

Wedding Photographer or Videographer, or both?

It was when I saw my own wedding photographer roll his eyes at the mere mention of people filming our day that I started to wonder what the issue was with wedding photographers and videographers working together. How sad, I thought. Why on earth would he be so obvious about his dislike for a film crew when he’s never even met my guys before, let alone worked with them? But after a little research and asking a few of my…

Should I Have A Wedding Videographer?

the brides dad says something funny about the bride and everyone is laughing and shocked he could be so funny

Should I have a wedding videographer and wedding video or get my friend/uncle/brother/friend of a friend do it…? It’s a hugely common question I hear online and it’s even a question we asked ourselves during our own wedding planning! Being a wedding videographer and all that, kinda biased now huh? But I totally get the attraction of considering ‘cheaper’ options or even easier ones if you’re unsure on having one in the first place! If you’ve read my ‘About Me’…

Back in March 2010 we did our first proper wedding fayre at the Hard Days Night Hotel in Liverpool (what a beautiful venue that is) and our films caught the eye of Mr Tam, Maria’s Dad. Not long after that we welcomed Maria and Michael, along with Maria’s parents, in to our home and showed off some of our favourite wedding DVD’s and enjoyed answering all the questions they had about getting their two day wedding filmed. Their wedding was…

Should I Book A Professional Photographer?

I came across this today on Rock n Roll Bride after seeing it posted on Twitter. I felt compelled to share this on my Blog so that you too can read this cautionary tale from someone willing to share their experience. I always worry that I sound like I’m using a sales tactic when I say ‘I always hear so many people regret not having a wedding film done professionally’ or ‘it’s a lot to put on someone, a friend…

Filming two weddings in a weekend was going to be a challenge but one that I was really excited about! “Pat and I have just watched the video highlights again and again – AMAZING! We are so so happy with it and can’t believe how fantastic it looks. Its so lovely…
