Having been the chosen wedding videographer at Willington Hall (You can see that gorgeous Willington winter wedding video here) the year before I was really excited to be heading to Tarpoley in Cheshire yet again (it’s becoming one of my favourite wedding venues!).

This time I had the pleasure of filming Kath and Matthew’s summer wedding over in Tarpoley and it was certain to be a fabulously fun one as the Bride had lots of surprises planned.

This Disney loving couple had us smiling along with them all day…

As always I started off my morning filming the Bride and her family as Paul headed over to film the Groom. I arrived to complete calm and big cheesy grins whereas Paul arrived to a few nervous smiles. I loved the contrast!

The guys had Dad do the finishing touches before heading off in the Bentley’s (the first surprise) to St Deiniol church in Hawarden, Deeside.

Kath was helped in to her stunning bespoke wedding dress, expertly made by Maria Morris, before her talented make-up artist (Jane Bellis) added the finishing touches. Dad was clearly blown away, even if he did well to keep composed.

Matthew looked nervous as he waited for Kath to arrive. She looked utterly gorgeous as she stepped out of her wedding car in to the pouring rain. Typical August weather in the North West of England!

She floated down the aisle and they both grinned from ear to ear as the church ceremony got under way. The priest kept things lighthearted before the serious bit of exchanging vows and wedding rings.

They were soon announced as husband and wife and made their way out in to the church grounds, perfectly timed as the rain had decided to cease…

Guests made their way to Willington Hall to enjoy drinks in the lounge areas. They then braved the winds to have some group photos outside in the gorgeous grounds before wedding breakfast was served.

Kath’s next surprise went down a storm as The Best Singing Waiters took to the floor and had soon had everyone on their feet dancing around the tables and throwing their napkins in the air.

I managed to persuade them back outside as the sky was looking beautiful as the sun dipped down behind the clouds. Always a great time of the day to let the couple enjoy some time together and get some of those romantic shots we all love.

Soon it was time to take to the dance floor and guests were treated to a surprise choreographed first dance to Michael Buble ending with a fabulous balloon release over the newlyweds.

Guests then joined them on the floor to dance the night away as we said our goodbyes, ready to watch back over all the amazing footage we had captured from such an incredible wedding.

I’d love to film another wedding at Willington so if you’re looking for someone to film your wedding there why not get in touch?

Kath left this amazing review for me on Facebook:

Charlene is an amazing videographer!
My wedding highlights is amazing! She captured all the fun and love of the day. Charlene and her colleague Paul (who I thought was fabulous) made me feel so comfortable and went above and beyond what I asked and needed them to do. This marvellous lady fixed my hair and sorted my dress out on numerous occasions! Charlene & Paul thank you! Can’t wait to see the full film ??
