  • Katherine & Nathanael’s Wedding Day at Methley and Oulton

    Katherine & Nathanael’s Wedding Day at Methley and Oulton

    Katherine & Nathanel’s Wedding was held at St. Oswald’s in Methley with the reception at Oulton Hall. Both are wonderful settings. St Oswald’s dates back to the fourteenth century and was the original centre of Methley. Andrea Barrett was the photographer at the wedding – she helped the photo-shoot move along smoothly and set up some great shots. Thanks Andrea, you really understand the videographer’s role which makes it so easy to work with you. Katherine emailed us after the wedding – here are some of her comments: – Thank you so much, it really is worth it to see […]

  • Marks 40th Birthday Party at The Mint Hotel, Leeds

    Marks 40th Birthday Party at The Mint Hotel, Leeds

    Shaun called us a week or so before the event to ask if we could cover the 40th birthday party for his partner at the Mint Hotel. Of course we said yes. Mark didn’t know about the video, so we had to arrive incognito in order to capture Mark’s surprised expression when we started filming! We had a great time and I think we enjoyed it as much as the guests obviously did. There was never a dull moment with some very lively dancing going on. We also managed to fit in some hilarious interviews with Mark & Shaun’s guests […]

  • Hannah and Robert’s Wedding at Wood Hall Hotel and Spa, Linton

    Hannah and Robert’s Wedding at Wood Hall Hotel and Spa, Linton

    The drive up Trip Lane from the village of Linton to Wood Hall Hotel and Spa gives occasional glimpses of the Hall as we approached though fields of vibrant red poppies. This setting is a wonder of beauty and tranquillity which offers a multitude of possibilities to the creative photographer or videographer. Given that the whole day would be at the one location, we had the opportunity to get some interviews with some of the guest during the reception. It is always so interesting to hear what the guests have to say about the couple and when the couple themselves […]

  • Sarah & Geoff’s Wedding at Adel and Reception at Chevin Lodge

    Sarah & Geoff’s Wedding at Adel and Reception at Chevin Lodge

    Sarah and Geoff’s wedding was held at the beautiful, historic church of St John The Baptist in Adel, Leeds. St John’s dates back to before 1150 AD and provided a fantastic setting for the wedding party and all the guests. In particular the lych gate and the pathway make a fabulous frame with the church in the background. Geoff was at the church, bright and early and Mark Pearson, the photographer was busy getting some great shots. Anne and I had a chat with the vicar who was very helpful and we managed to find a couple of spots for […]

  • FlexDance Christmas Showcase

    FlexDance Christmas Showcase

    We do enjoy covering these shows. The children (and the teachers) are so enthusiastic! The show this Christmas was indeed a Showcase of colour and movement. This was the second performance that we have covered and we learnt a few tricks after the first. We got Sam and Steph (the FlexDance organisers) to reserve three seats for us in the centre of the front row so that we could position a camera at dead centre without blocking the view of any of the audience. We also took a feed direct from the auditorium sound system, to get a clean sound […]

  • Jennifer & Mark’s Wedding at Hazlewood Castle

    Jennifer & Mark’s Wedding at Hazlewood Castle

    Unfortunately, the first day of October could not have been wetter and if it hadn’t been for a profusion of umbrellas, guests and media professionals alike would have been drenched in the short walk from the car park to the hotel. No-one’s spirits seemed to be in the least bit dampened by the weather, however and we arrived an hour before the ceremony to find plenty going on. What a brilliant day it was. Even if we couldn’t make the most of the grounds, Jenny & Mark had an intimate wedding in the magnificent rooms of Hazlewood Castle near Tadcaster. […]

  • Amy & Richard’s Wedding at Wentbridge House Hotel

    Amy & Richard’s Wedding at Wentbridge House Hotel

    We arrived at Wentbridge House Hotel nestling in the valley in the village of Wentbridge in good weather if a little breezy. The setting is beautiful and the slightly cloudy sky made for more even lighting, perfect for videography. There was plenty happening when we arrived, guests arriving and chatting and hotel staff busy with the preparations. There was a sense of calmness around Amy which belied the excitement she was obviously feeling on her big day. As a contrast, the three bridesmaids in emerald satin with bold orange gerberas adorning their hair brought humour and colour to the proceedings. […]

  • Emma & Matt’s Wedding in Harome

    Emma & Matt’s Wedding in Harome

    Well it was a good thing that Anne and I allowed plenty of time to travel to Harome because when we hit the A64 we realised that not only did we have the coast-bound traffic to contend with but also York Races. After spending 20 minutes travelling 2 miles we instructed the Sat Nav to ‘avoid’ the A64 and it sure enough it took us on all the pretty back roads to our destination in plenty of time. And Harome IS such a pretty village. Emma was readying herself at the Star along with her dad and the bridesmaids and […]

  • Emily & Martin’s Wedding in Ilkley

    Emily & Martin’s Wedding in Ilkley

    Stunning bridesmaids in charcoal sheath dresses with beautiful cerise silk sashes were a striking contrast to Emily’s dress, and what a fabulous dress it was! The bride was justifiably proud of her spectacular wedding gown and truly lit up St Margaret‘s Church. During the ceremony the sun beamed through the stained glass windows and acted almost like a natural spotlight, illuminating the bride perfectly – it was a magical scene and we managed to capture some superb shots for the happy couple to enjoy afterwards on their wedding video.

  • Catherine & Chris at Ripley Castle

    Catherine & Chris at Ripley Castle

    Despite cheating with my thesaurus, I’m still struggling to find the words to describe Catherine and Chris’s wedding at Ripley Castle on Valentine’s Day this year . . . . it was simply awesome, and more. Firstly, the location – romance and drama, villainy and heroism all feature strongly in the history of Ripley Castle.  If walls could talk they would tell tales of kings and queens, war and plagues, eccentric ancestors and ghosts. Our protagonists were both dressed in white for the civil ceremony, Catherine in a gorgeous full length strapless A line gown and Chris in his naval […]
