A Simple and Relaxed Wedding Video Package

Or the thought of having one makes you cringe a little but it’s that ‘what if’ worry that keeps bringing you back… I’m talking last minute ‘wedding video’ worries. Wouldn’t it be nice to have something to show off the day to people who couldn’t be there? Not only the guests who couldn’t make…

Celebrating a Special Hillbark Hotel Wedding Video

Yesterday was our wedding anniversary. Bronze I believe, though we didn’t have a clue what to buy so took a day off instead to celebrate! Back in 2009 I was waking up in our room at The Hillbark Hotel in the Wirral married (and realising I’d left my bra at the hotel I got ready in so had to wear the signed Liverpool shirt I gave my husband the day before and hold my arms in strategic places so no-one…
