Manchester wedding video highlights
The bride and groom, Rebecca and Matthew, booked the Diamond package which is from bridal prep all the way to the reception and includes a few songs after the first dance. The package also includes guest messages and an early years photo montage.
I arrived early to film the bridal prep at Rebecca’s mum’s house. It was nice to film all of the excitement during the preparations, as the bridesmaids and brides had their hair and make-up done
Matt and his ushers met the guests as they arrived at the church. Shortly afterwards, I filmed the bridesmaids as they were dropped off at the church in a stunning Bentley. Rebecca soon followed in a vintage style car with her dad.
I had attended the wedding rehearsal at the church a week before the wedding. I like to do this so that I can get my bearings, have a chat to the couple and bridal party and meet the vicar or priest conducting the ceremony. The vicar at St Wilfred’s church wanted to see certificated that proved that I was a professional videographer. He had experienced some videographers and photographers in the past that had disturbed the ceremony by moving around too much. I was happy to provide certificates to prove my professionalism and reassure him that I wouldn’t disturb the ceremony. If you are considering a wedding video and your priest or vicar has concerns about this sort of thing, I’m happy to come along to the rehearsal so alleviate any concerns. My style of filming is very discreet so that the proceedings can go ahead without interruption.
After the ceremony, the couple had a few shots taken in the church grounds. All of the guests made their way to the Pinewood on Wilmslow Hotel where they were met with a drinks reception. Everyone gathered in the lovely gardens at the back of the hotel for the group shots.
The speeches were before the wedding breakfast, so that the groom, father of the bride and best man could relax during the meal. Matt’s brother sent a video message from America, which was played on a big screen for the guests to watch.
Mid-way through the dessert, some of the waiters started to sing. The bride’s mum and dad had arranged a surprise; singing waiters. The waiters sang songs like I Love You Baby and ended with New York, New York, which got everybody up dancing. You can see in the wedding video highlights that the bride danced in the middle of all the guests.
The cutting of the cake took place with all the bride & groom’s friends and family gathered round. Rebecca and Matt cut a slice of cake to feed to each other. Straight after the cutting of the cake was the first dance. The couples song of choice was The Book of Love by Gavin James.
