Our most recent memory

Crayke Manor, York

Dina & Joe

In 2009 I was lucky enough to have my own Romantic Italian Wedding at the stunning Villa San Crispolto Italy. Since then I have been lucky enough to returned many times to film other couples celebrating their wedding day.

The villa sits in a prime position over looking the stunning Lake Trasimeno. The rolling hills and beautiful scenery, make for the the perfect place to get married. Marco and his team at Romantic Italian Weddings oversea every aspect of the day, making sure everything runs like clockwork.

When choosing your own Romantic Italian Wedding, you need to look at many things. The main thing is “Location, Location, Location” The Villa needs to be close to at least one major airport. Have good local amenities and a View! At the end of the day that’s why your getting married in Italy, Right?

The views in Italy are some of the best in the world and positioned on top of the hill over looking the Lake. Villa San Crisopoto really does take some beating.

The Villa.

Finding a villa that can easily accommodate all your Wedding guests can sometimes be a challenge. Luckily Villa San Crispolto sleeps up to 32 guests. 13 bedrooms all with views of the lakes. It has 8 equipped kitchens and a large swimming pool. Also with great views of the lake.

This Villa really has everything and does not disappoint.

It is a 5 minute drive from the local town of Passignano Sul Trasimeno. With its local cafes, bars and restaurants. It also has easy access to Perugia airport which is a 25 min drive away.

The Villa really does have everything for your Romantic Italian Wedding.

If you are planning your own destination wedding, anywhere in the world. Please contact me. I would love to film your amazing day.

Filming A lake District Wedding is One of the things I love most about been a Wedding Videographer. It truly is a beautiful part of the country. The Lake District is one of my favourite places to film. The stunning scenery, beautiful venues and crazy weather! Standing at the shore of Ullswater Lake looking at the sun glisten on the surface. This truly is a magical place. I have to pinch myself that I’m a professional and I get to video weddings in this breathtaking region.

Alex & Sian.

Alex and Sian had met me 2 years earlier at Alex’s brothers wedding. (Also in the lake district) They knew my style and how I approach weddings.

I drove up and stayed the night before just so I could check out St Lawrences Church in Appleby. This is where Alex & Sian were having their ceremony. It also gave me the chance to film some of the surrounding countryside.The following day I arrived at Sians family home for the bridal preparations. The whole atmosphere was very relaxed and I had the pleasure of meeting & working alongside Dom & Zoe from Dominic Wright Photography. When we arrived at the church, it seemed like the whole of Appleby had turned out to see Sian & Alex. The local community really did give them a warm reception. Every Lake District Wedding I have done, the support for the couples are lovely to see.

After the ceremony it was on to the most idilic location for a wedding. The Marquee, supplied by Bakerwood Marquees, looked sublime in its surroundings. The Lake District is not known for its hot weather, but today it didn’t disappoint. The sun beat down allowing all the guests to enjoy their prosecco on the lawn and enjoy the delicious Hors d’oeuvres.

The sunset was magical alowing us to go down to the lake to capture some silhouette shots and capture that amazing backdrop.

If you are planning your wedding in the Lakes please contact me I would love to hear from you.

A Wedding in the Lake District.

As Chloe’s dad read out his speech, he said he felt like a plumed peacock as he walked his daughter down the aisle. So he should. Chloe looked absolutely stunning in her designer, laced wedding dress.

The Location.

I have had the privilege of working in the Lake District for some years now. The scenery and atmospheric beauty of the place never seizes to blow me away. It truly is a stunning part of the world.

The Lake district is the perfect place to get Married.  The weather in The Lakes can be a little unpredictable,  but boy does the scenery still looks amazing even when it rains, which it does, a lot!

I’m lucky, I  have filmed many weddings now in the Lakes and the wether has been perfect. When you combine the two, perfect weather and truly jaw dropping scenery it truly is a wedding videographers dream location.

The Ceremony.

Chloe & Sams ceremony was held at the historic  local church of St Andrews in Greystoke. The perfect location to listen to one of the most eloquently read poems I have ever heard.One of Chloe’s younger relatives well and truly blew me away. After the ceremony, it was on to the stunning Greystoke Castle for the Prosecco reception. The catering and venue was supplied by the very professional Bakerwood Marquees. This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure of working with them. The attention to detail and organisation on the day was truly amazing.

The Party.

Into the evening the guests partied the night away. This is my favourite time of the day. Everyone is totally relaxed and this is where the fun begins. Ties on heads, break dancing and all out shenanigans, I have seen it all.

Chloe & Sam’s whole day was perfect from start to finish and I wish them both all the happiness for the future.

If you are planning your wedding in the Lakes, I would love to hear from you.

Don’t over look the Wedding video

I get lots of enquires from Wedding clients wanting a Wedding video. All asking what the costs are and that their budget is limited.

As most good filmmakers (because that’s what we are) will tell you, the biggest hurdle we face is the battle of the cost. Most people appreciate that to get a good photographer, you will pay a premium. Although when it comes to the video a lot of people truly undervalue it. Take for instance my latest Wedding video. The highlights alone have taken over 56hrs of work and that’s for a 5min film. (See link below) Why? because I put my heart and soul into every clip . Making sure the cuts are just right, that the colour is matched perfectly and that the music is timed to perfection. I want every video to be right. I want to love it just as much as my couple will.

Even though a lot of people think it’s just about filming a load of clips, stitching them together, and banging a romantic song over it. It’s not! It’s about telling the story, it’s about pulling you in, to make you feel like you are reliving the best day of your life over and over again.

I work hard at what I do and if I could offer couples any advice it would be this. Please don’t overlook the video guy . It’s the best investment you will ever make (even more than the Wedding Photographer) a bold statement I know. Just ask any of my couples, I’m sure they will agree. Just remember long after the Wedding cake has been eaten and flowers have died, your Wedding video will still be there for a life time.
