Park Hall Hotel
The Park Hall Hotel near Chorley was the venue for this autumn wedding. I arrived to film the guests arriving for the celebrations. Luckily, the weather was on our side. It was overcast, which is actually better for the wedding film and didn’t rain. The ceremony room was still being set up when I arrived so I decided to seek out the bride to get some shots of her getting ready.
Filming of bridal prep?
The bridal prep was taking place at the hotel so I filmed some of the details like the wedding dress and shoes. I also filmed the bride getting her hair done and the bridesmaids having their make-up done. There is usually so much going on during this part of the day. It’s usually in the last half hour before the ceremony that things can get a little bit stressful. There can be last minute touches and making sure that people are where they are supposed to be. This is why sometimes, brides don’t want their bridal prep filmed. If this is the case, I stick to filming the details at the venue and the guests arriving. The wedding film package can be tailored to suit you. If there’s anything that you don’t want or want to add, just ask.
The wedding ceremony took place in the medieval banqueting hall at the Park Hall Hotel. The hall is quite impressive with the stonework and beams. The room looked pretty with the cherry trees at the front of the aisle. There were over one hundred guests at the wedding but the hall was more then big enough to accommodate everyone.
Capturing those natural moments
After the ceremony, the photoshoot took place in the courtyard. The group shot worked really well, as there was a balcony. This meant that we could film from above to capture all of the guests. There is a lake at The Park Hall Hotel with a little jetty. This worked quite well for the shots with the bridal party and the couples shots.
Hannah and Adam wanted the wedding videography to be natural and get lots of shots of their two year old daughter, Sofia. I made sure that I filmed plenty of footage for the wedding video of their little girl. It will be nice to watch the videos back in years to come.
I was filming at the Park Hall Hotel wedding until the first dance. I stayed for a few songs after the first dance as everybody piled onto the dance floor during the first dance to join the couple. Lots of couples like to have the full day filmed so that all of the main parts of the day are on the wedding video.
