What a cracking wedding this one was. Alison & Armon are a great couple with a fantastic set of friends. They kept me entertained all day & were very up for being filmed. If you can convince your friends to embrace the camera then it really makes a difference to the end product of your wedding video!
I couldn't have asked for better weather from my point of view. It was a very bright overcast day casting excellent soft light everywhere outside & inside through windows. Not a harsh shadow in sight. Once I started colour grading their shots my jaw nearly hit the keyboard I was so impressed with the images in front of me. I'd like to take full credit, but it's hats off to my new camera & lenses as well.
Prestwold Hall in Leicestershire is a very picturesque venue, with loads and loads of space outside. If there's something I love nearly as much as light, it's space! The speeches cracked me up. I try to maintain an air of professionalism & I always stop short of banging my fists on the table hollering, but there's only so much I can do.
Ali & Armon gave me some very good music to work with, their first dance was a tearjerker, the acoustic version of Latch by Sam Smith. I was quite taken with the song I used in their highlights & thought it gave quite an epic uplifting feel to the day which matched their wedding perfectly. What song? I'm not telling. You have to watch it. Now...
