About the Couple
Venue – Lodge Farm House
Photographers – Milk Bottle
Why do you want to capture your wedding on video?
We would love to be able to show generations of families this film, we want to see brilliant moments we may have missed of people enjoying themselves on our special day. Would love to capture moments of family and friends along side each other having a hopefully wonderful time.
Why did you pick us for the videography?
Enjoyed your website and was very easy to meet with and talk to, seemed understanding and appreciative of what style we would like, and understood you would be working alongside 2 camera men as well.
You guys? …What do you do?..How do you spend your days?..What’s important in life? etc etc
Jake – Rugby player and coach, love spending time with friends playing sport and drinking coffee. Enjoy helping people out and relaxing when the stresses of work are over. Alice – Personal trainer – Loving, caring and hard working person, who similar to Jake enjoys a coffee and spending time with the people she loves and cares for. For us important things are, spending quality time together, laughing together and making sure we always have each others back from now until forever. We love our friends and family very much and want to share our day with them all.
The proposal? …Tell me everything (all the gushy details)
The proposal was done in Croyde Devon. this is a place one day me and alice would love to move too and host big parties and surf daily. Alice has spent many family holidays down in Croyde and now Jake has been we intend to go forever.
This was the first holiday we ever had together, we where 17 at the time so had to be chaperoned by Alices mum coral. We went back 7 years later to a beautiful cove at the end of Croyde bay, where Alice wrote our initials in the rocks all those years ago.
Jake – went looking to find the rock which clearly was not going to be there, whilst Alice was stressing about the tide coming in and trapping us, Jake formally marched on to find this rock, Alice followed reluctantly however when she got back in to the cove, she started to hunt for the initials, Alice started to re-write the names in the Rock whilst Jake got down o one knee which seemed like an eternity and waiting for Alice to turn around.
The most nerve racking thing Jake had ever done, from transporting the ring on a 5 hour car journey, to sneaking it in to my pocket, to the longest walk down a single track path with Jake chatting utter nonsense whilst Alice unaware was just excited to see where we wrote our names on the rocks.
So, Lodge House Farm in Hitchin? … Why this place above anywhere else?
The venue was the 3rd venue we had seen and was the one that summed us up and we both just looked at each other and said this is it.
A lovely farm house was a gorgeous and quaint green area, perfect for a Yurt to fit on (Which by the way is what we where staying in when we got engaged), It has a lovely secret garden as well as a brilliant feel of tranquility and isolation, it is hard to find a place where you wouldn\’t be interrupted by other people, but this fits all the criteria perfectly.
What experience do you want to give to your guests?
I want our guests to just have a fabulous time reflecting about old times we have shared and exciting new ones on the way, I don\’t want them to feel stress or pressure, just enjoy the day with plenty of smiles, food & drink to go around.
Tom & Sarah,A huge thank you for sharing our day with us and not being invasive and just completley understanding what we where looking for.Glad you enjoyed the day, that means a lot, we currently sitting in the Airport watching your short film which is already amazing.Thanks so much for everything and look forward to seeing the rest soon.
