Coronavirus update

Well, what a strange year so far eh? As some of you may know, we’ve been as up and down as the rest of you the past few months due to COVID-19, having had to postpone our own wedding which was meant to be on the 6th of June. (Roll on May 2021!) Frustrating times indeed!

We’re always ones to see the positives however, and instead of meeting face to face at venues or for a coffee to chat to you lovely couples, we’ve found that getting to know you on Zoom or Whatsapp instead still feels personal, is obviously really convenient for everyone, and we also get to meet your cats too! Zoom meetings fit in well with our environmental ethos and have made us realise this is a much better practice to have in terms of CO2 emissions and helps us use the car less generally. So we’ll definitely be sticking to this approach as we go into bookings for our 2021 weddings and beyond.

Fancy arranging a Zoom call to chat about your wedding? Let us know here.

Celebrating International Women’s Day

What a mad couple of weeks! In February I responded to a call out by Wendy Dalrymple, the Rector of All Saints with Holy Trinity Parish Church in Loughborough, who was looking for a videographer to help with her 21st Century Woman singing project for this year’s International Womens Day #IWD2020.

The aim of the project was to bring women together through the project in order to celebrate a diversity of women’s job roles, to enjoy singing as part of a group, and to feel like part of a thriving local community, which of course we all ended up feeling!

A scratch choir was born after only a couple of rehearsals and the above video was recorded at the final session on the 27th of February. The group were conducted by the super talented Emma Trounson and the audio was recorded by Clifton Bank Studios

Music & Lyrics by Joanna Forbes L’Estrange. Inspired by the original single recorded at Abbey Road Studios in 2018 by stars of stage and screen. #twentyfirstcenturywomansong

Carrie and David

Carrie and David got married at St James Church at MacDonald Ansty Hall in Coventry on November the 2nd 2019. We absolutely loved being part of their day and capturing all the emotions for them to look back on in years to come. Congratulations from us!

And special thank yous to Bespoke Weddings who put us in touch with such a fantastic couple, Natalie Wootton Photography for being a dream to work with on the day and the staff at MacDonald Ansty Hall for helping us out when we accidentally left all of our audio equipment at the venue in all the excitement!!

Cat and Rich

Cat and Rich married at Quorn Grange Hotel, Leicestershire on October 5th 2019 and what a lovely wedding it was! A lovely, laid back couple that we adored from the day we met for our consultation and it was so touching to see all emotions running high throughout the day, especially from Rich during his speech – we love you Rich!!

Thank you to everyone who made us feel so welcome on the day, and congrats to you both!

Natasha and Matthew

Natasha and Matt’s uniquely styled industrial chic wedding at The Pumping House in Ollerton, Nottinghamshire, was the perfect day – full of emotion and situated in possibly the most stunning wedding venue we have been to yet, an industrial pumping house which is now converted exclusively for weddings.

We loved being part of a wedding with an ethical subtext, from locally sourced flowers from Frances and Rose to the vegan streetfood menu from The OttoMen, and of course the amazing Magda K Photography who is super talented and a pleasure to work alongside.

I would also have no hesitation in recommending hair and make up by Aimee and Natasha Milroy, who were so much fun to work with!

Laura and Adam

Laura and Adam’s wedding took place at Hotel Van Dyk in Clowne, Chesterfield on September 12th 2019 and it was a privilege to document their day for them to remember forever. It was so lovely to see a couple able to be so silly with each other!

What could be better than documenting wedding films for a living? I love my job!

Nicki and Dean

On March 16th 2019 we filmed the wedding of Nicki and Dean in Leicestershire. The day started at Glenfield Registry Office with the following wedding breakfast at the Bradgate in Newtown Linford, plus a huge reception with just under 200 guests at the stunning Pumping House in Cropston. It was SO much fun! As you can see from the dance moves at the end! 🙂

Massive congratulations to Nicki and Dean and we hope you enjoy watching your film for many years to come!
