A Spring April Showers Wedding Video in Grasmere

Well this Spring wedding video from a gorgeous wedding in Grasmere (the Lake District) certainly got to enjoy true April Showers! I guess it wouldn’t be a true English countryside wedding without a little rain. And, a truly wonderful couple who embraced that rain (and the mud) to make the most of the epic surroundings… It’s with huge thanks again to the super talented (and lovely) Mick Cookson, he recommended me to Gemma and Ian earlier in the year and…

8 Years Since My First Wedding Video…

How did this happen??? 8 AMAZING YEARS of being a wedding videographer! Today a little reminder popped up on my phone. 8 years today I filmed my first ever wedding (after editing my own) over in Altrincham near Manchester. 8 years ago a wonderful couple put their trust in me. A complete stranger offering them a free wedding video on an online forum. They told me after they worried it was too good to be true but they were SO…

A Charming Cheshire Hall Wedding Video

Charming, fun, delightful, stunning and simply divine are words you could use to describe this incredibly fun and stylish wedding in Middleton and Altrincham, Cheshire. I’d been so excited about this day from the very moment they booked and every meeting, email and chat we had after that made me love them more and more. Their daughter Heidi even came round to one pre-wedding meeting and we spent most of the time cooing over how cute she was babbling away…

Mitton Hall Fun Filled Wedding

I honestly mean it when I say every wedding of mine holds a special place in my heart but this one…this really was on another level and so ridiculously special I knew I wouldn’t be in any fit state to actually film it myself. Plus, I don’t think having a camera strapped to me as I walk down the aisle is the best idea! This bride is my very beautiful Sister in law, Keri. She married the man of her…

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…
