For Claire and Simon, their wedding in Lucca, Italy was an opportunity for their friends and family to join them in celebrating their relationship and family they have built together.
To welcome their guests a small drinks reception was hosted in Piazza Citadella the day before where the groom’s father works as an artist. This was a great opportunity to film guests greeting each other for the first time as a precursor to their wedding video at Fattoria Mansi Bernardini the day after.
The venue itself is formed by a selection of villas with fantastic views over the Tuscan landscape. Following an intimate ceremony with many personal details planned by the bride and groom, guests enjoyed drinks and canapés on the terrace with a surprise operatic performance.
For the wedding breakfast, guests were led along a tree-lined path to a beautifully decorated marquee for a delicious meal, speeches and more singing! The day culminated with outdoor dancing under a canopy of paper lanterns until late into the night.

LEANNE + NATHAN
Our British weather often threatens to dampen an outdoor wedding, but Leanne and Nathan's plans really paid off when we enjoyed one of the hottest days of the summer for their wedding video at Knowlton Court in Kent.
Leanne comes from Iraqi heritage and guests enjoyed a delicious middle-eastern wedding breakfast and a performance by a traditional belly dancer at their reception where their guests celebrated until the early hours.
Aerial content in this wedding video was supplied by the very talented Rojie Carney.

South Farm | Fiona-Jayne + Chris
In March 2018 it was the turn of Fiona-Jayne and her fiancé Christopher to exchange vows at South Farm. The couple opted to include bride and groom preparations as part of their wedding film and the day started with the couple getting ready with their entourage in separate areas of the venue whilst guests gathered in the Old Dairy for the ceremony.
Christopher and Fiona-Jane have been a couple for over 11 years so it was a poignant moment when the bride entered the ceremony room in a blush-pink wedding dress by Naomi Neoh accompanied by her father. The couple opted to set-out the Old Dairy in a horse-shoe seating arrangement which created an intimate atmosphere for their close family and friends.

LOUISE + NASSER
Louise and Nasser's June wedding held at Kew Gardens, London.
The warm summer’s day started at the nearby Syon Park where the couple prepared for their nuptials at the Hilton Hotel before making the short journey to The Nash Conservatory at Kew Gardens where their guests and family were waiting.
After exchanging their own specially written vows, a reception took place within Kew’s beautiful botanic gardens. Staff were also on hand with a golf buggy to whisk us to various locations within the grounds for a couple shoot which created some key moments within their wedding film at Kew Gardens.
Later in the evening, Louise revealed the surprise that she had been planning and rehearsing for six months. A dance performance to the music from Riverdance accompanied by troupe of Irish dancers. You can see their spectacular show in the second video on this page.
