From the first time that I met Laura and Dom over Zoom, I knew their wedding was going to be an absolute joy to film.
They came to have fun and that's exactly what they did. When a couple sets the tone so early on in the day, their guests are on a path to having the best day ever; from the Dom and his groomsman cat walking through the church yard to Laura's unbelievable speech. From The ice cream van to the fish and chip van. Ohhhh yeppp!
It was easter weekend and the sun was out for the first time this year which meant this wedding already had a leg up before the first guests even arrived. The drive was hours for me so naturally I allowed lots of spare time and thus arrived at the churched before it was open which gave me some time to get a couple of location shot on foot and with the drone. The vicar was very welcoming and brought a big smile and happy atmosphere with him. When Dom arrived, we instantly started talking about silly fun shots we could get with him groomsman which was totally hilarious and wish I could film stuff like that everyday.
Jordan and Hannah of Jord+Han Photography were a dream to work with. As they were setting up, we had the typical 'photo-video coagulation' chat and away we went making magic between us. They came out with some really stunning photos!
Laura looked amazing as she walked down the aisle; full of smiles and happiness.
After the ceremony, we had the confetti outside, got the groups shots ticked off, and then we had a few minutes to have some fun with a mini couple shoot.
Upon arrival at the reception, a dedicated parking space was reserved for me (massive brownie points there).
The whole reception was designed around having fun. A homemade bar with bar snacks, a diary room, outdoor games, bubbles, ice cream, a giant easter rabbit, easter eggs and a face-in-hole.
There were a lot of speeches; all of which were very well delivered, including the speech by the best man and 'Assistant to the Best Man' which involved a slideshow presentation explains the concept of 'GPM' (Giggle Per Minute).
The first dance....Well of course it was a rehearse routine that was perfected execute.
It was tough to pack away and leave this one as I just wanted to stay and join in but with a 2 hour drive ahead of me, I had to hit the road (with a quick detour through McDonalds drive thru).
