Coddington Vineyard Wedding Photography | Herefordshire

Worcestershire Wedding Photographer | A Coddington Vineyard Wedding

Coddington Vineyard is a working vineyard and a new to the scene wedding and events venue tucked away in the Malverns on the Worcestershire and Herefordshire border. It’s really quite special, with the vineyard and beautiful gardens creating a perfect backdrop for either a lakeside ceremony or outdoor drinks reception. For the evening meal and dancing, there’s a barn with many original features, and space to set up a marquee or tent too. Tim and Ellie chose to get married at Coddington Vineyard in mid-October, and thankfully the worst of Storm Callum held off long enough for both their ceremony and drinks reception to be held outside as planned.

The lakeside ceremony tent. Marriage laws in England require that a few lines and the register itself be said and signed under a permanent structure. Many wedding venues achieve this by having a little pagoda or folly registered for ceremonies. Tim and Ellie’s registrar was happy for the main ceremony to be held outdoors under the tent pictured above, and then for Tim, Ellie and their witnesses to step inside the barn to complete the formalities before returning for the close of the ceremony. It worked perfectly.

The barn all set up on the morning of the wedding. I really loved how atmospheric it was in there with the wind blowing outside and all the lights making it feel extra cosy and inviting.

The Parsonage Wedding Videography | Worcestershire

Worcestershire Wedding Videography | A Worcestershire Country Garden Wedding

Today I’m sharing the wedding videography highlights video, feature film (tucked away at the bottom of this post), and some still frames from Jenny and Rob’s spring wedding in north Worcestershire just south of Birmingham. Rob and Jenny chose to get married in Worcestershire on the very edge of the Cotswolds overlooking the Abberley Hills. They held their ceremony in Rob’s childhood village church and then enjoyed a garden party reception up the road in Ombersley in a capri style marquee in the grounds of a beautiful house and garden they had hired for the weekend.

Shiningford Farm Wedding Videography | Derbyshire

A Peak District Wedding at Shiningford Farm

I’m really excited to be sharing the wedding videography highlights and some still frames (taken from 4K footage) from a Peak District wedding at Shiningford Farm near Ashbourne in Derbyshire.

Kirsteen and Paul got married over the early May bank holiday weekend and celebrated with a wedding reception held in a PapaKåta sperry tent at Shiningford Farm. Shiningford Farm is an exclusive use wedding venue in Derbyshire on the edge of Carsington Water.

What makes Shiningford Farm weddings special is that you can stay on the farm for the whole weekend, not just for your wedding day. The venue is perfect as an outdoor wedding venue and has plenty of space to set up a marquee, tent, yurt or teepee and space to sleep upto 34 guests. If you’re looking for a wedding venue in the Peak District, do take a look at Shiningford Farm, it’s really quite special!

Shustoke Barn Wedding Videography | Warwickshire

Today I’m sharing the wedding videography highlights and some still frames from Craig and Bryony’s Shustoke Farm Barns wedding which took place in late March on a bright spring day. Bryony and Craig’s wedding including their highlights film has also been featured on British wedding blog Love My Dress in September 2018.

After what felt like a very long, cold and snow filled winter (there was snow on the ground the weekend before their wedding!) I was so glad the weather held for them and they could enjoy the grounds and courtyard in the early afternoon sunshine.

Shustoke Farm Barns in Coleshill has been purpose converted for use as an exclusive use wedding venue by family-run Cripps & Co who also own and run wedding venues in the Cotswolds and Northumberland. Shustoke Farm Barns features high vaulted ceilings, large glass doors on both sides flooding the ceremony and reception area with natural light, and one of my favourite features as a wedding videographer; glass covered diamond shaped brickwork at the back. The bokeh is amazing and it makes for a really special backdrop for the ceremony! If you ever catch me pointing my lens at the ceiling or floor, it’s because I’m a magpie for pretty light to use as b-roll (the detail shots that act like glue to piece wedding films together). Shustoke Farm Barns did not disappoint!Read more…

PapaKåta Wedding Videography | Cambridge

A teepee wedding in Cambridge

Today I’m sharing the wedding videography highlights and feature film from a PapaKåta teepee wedding which took place back in September. Clare and Eman’s wedding has also been featured over on Rock my Wedding (April 2018). Their ceremony was held at OLEM in central Cambridge, and was followed by a reception in a PapaKåta teepee at Clare’s parents’ home. I absolutely love teepee weddings, sperry tent weddings and all things outdoors, so if you’re getting married and planning an outdoor reception, get in touch! I’d love to film for you

Teepee Wedding Cambridge | Glitter Ball

Clare and Eman’s ceremony was set for the early afternoon slot at OLEM in central Cambridge. As such, Ed and I arrived earlier than we normally would to film morning preparations at Clare’s parents’ home where she and her bridesmaids were getting ready and the reception was set to take place.
