Winstone View Wedding | Leah & Alex Teaser video

It's the hottest day of the year and today I'm at Whinstone View in Darlington. I begin the day at the blue lodge and meet the bride Leah and the bridesmaids. Hair and makeup is just about finished and a fabulous tiara is placed on the brides head.

I find out that this has been hand made by the bride herself. Check it out in the video amazing detail.

Me and the photographer Michael Cartwright hang the bespoke made dress outside with the extra long cathedral vail. 

The girls are handed gifts by the bride and we are ready to go. Noah the bride and grooms son is now ready and looks simply adorable in his suit

I arrive at the picturesque church in Nuneaton and set up for the ceremony.

After the ceremony we get some glorious shots outside the church with the car and the rolling hills in the background.

We head back to Whinstone View, it's just too hot to do the group shots so everybody chills and has a drink before food is served.

I must mention at this point the food placemats have been created out of logs and hand crafted by the groom Alex totally worth a look!

The speeches commence and this is followed by dessert. At this point I do the guest messages. As always some guests take the opportunity to show how much they love the camera!

As evening draws in we decide to do the group shots as it's a little cooler for the guests and we then head into the first dance.

Great chilled out day had by all and an absolute pleasure to cover the day. Im sure these two will create some form of wedding business though!

Beamish Hall Wedding | Wedding teaser Nicole & Mark

Today I'm filming at Beamish Hall in County Durham. I begin the day at the mother of the brides house which by the way is absolutely spotless.

I'm working with the charismatic fysal photography. Everything is running on time and we head to the church to film the lads.

Our bride comes down the aisle and looks amazing. After the ceremony we head to beamish hall where we film the most epic car shot outside the venue. 6 cars in total. Check out the footage in the video.

We go through the group shots and get some great stuff around the grounds before heading inside to the winter gardens to do the speeches.

During the meal the guests are treated to a 20 minute set from the singing waiters. Chaotic filming ensues. I never know where to point the camera when singing waiters are performing!

After the meal and speeches I do the guest messages which is a funny ad ever. Some interesting ones today. Nighttime arrrives with the first dance followed by dance with dad.

Great day with some great people

With love absolute media.
