St. Mary’s Church, West Derby
Samantha and Thomas were married at St. Mary’s Church, West Derby. The church is almost hidden away from the main road and is surrounded by huge trees. They looked great with the autumn leaves changing to yellows and oranges.
I went along to the wedding rehearsal before the big day so that I could get my bearings. It’s been a few years since I last filmed a wedding at St Mary’s. I was able to check with the vicar where to set up on the day and find out about who was doing readings. It all helps when it comes to filming so that I know where to get a good shot.
The bride and groom were Everton fans, which was reflected in the royal blue ribbons that decorated the pews. There were also deep blue flowers in the arrangements on the alter along with off-white roses. The bridesmaid also wore a stunning royal blue dress. The flower girls had blue sashes. Even some of the guests joined in with the theme and wore royal blue. It worked really well.
Filming of the ceremony
Samantha and Thomas decided to opt for the Opal package, which includes filming from the arrivals at the church until the end of the photoshoot, before the wedding breakfast. As the couple were having all of their photos at the church, I was just filming at St Mary’s Church, West Derby and not at the venue.
Some couples find the the filming of the ceremony is enough for them. They get to see the guests, the venue shots, arriving at the church and of course, the full ceremony. It’s nice to see and hear the vows and exchanging of rings. It’s also a bonus to have the photoshoot filmed, as this looks nice on the wedding video.
