We recently had the absolute pleasure of filming Yasmin & Chris' big day and we can certainly say that this wedding has been a first for us. The location of the wedding was the wonderful Eshott Hall in Northumberland, with the ceremony taking place at St Michael's & All Angels Church in Felton and the day was full of fantastic surprises planned by Chris.
The first surprise came on the morning, Yasmin was having her hair and make-up done when Chris sent in his niece to read a poem that he had written especially for the wedding day. It was received with giggles and happy tears as she flawless delivered the lines. A great moment to capture was Chris popping his head out of the room opposite to hear everyone’s reactions (don’t worry, he was very careful not to get a glimpse of his gorgeous bride).
Now it was the end of the ceremony that brought the biggest surprise of the day, following the final blessing the vicar, as an act of subterfuge organised by Chris, escorted the newly married couple into the vestry for a few moments before announcing them to the congregation. They emerged back into the church and straight into a scene from Love Actually, with the Voice of the Town choir entering down the side aisles singing All You Need Is Love as musicians popped up from within the congregation surprising the unsuspecting bride and wedding guests.
It was a fantastic sight to see and we loved being a part of it. It’s fair to say that those guests will be talking about this wedding for years to come, well done Chris for the flawless organisation and a huge congratulations to the happy couple!
