Nicole & Oliver
About the Couple
Venue – Peckforton Castle in Cheshire
Photographer – Kenny from Raw photography
Our couple wanted to get a wedding film so they could watch their magical day back whenever they’d like. Capture all the unique moments they had during the day, and to show people who weren’t able to attend the wedding but wanted to. The reason they went with us was both Nicole and Oliver really loved our work! Which is what we like to hear! They told us they’d looked at lots of videographers and ours stands out the most – which is great to be told! They chose the two videographer and aerial package that we offer. Sarah and I travelled up to Cheshire from Birmingham early in the morning and wasn’t it just worth it!
Oliver owns a nightclub company and it was at one of his nightclubs where Oliver and Nicole met. In a very moving speech, he tells the romantic tale of how they met. He touched on their past and described their future. When the father of the groom started getting emotional it was difficult for all involved! What was very clear though, was that the couple were very much in love. It was also great to see that the couple were able to share the day with their little baby girl.
Why I love this film
The reason I love this film is that not only was the wedding in an outstandingly breathtaking venue, but the attention to detail on the day had been second to none. In the morning, The bride can get ready at the Castle while the groom-to-be gets ready with his nearest and dearest in a separate house around 500 metres away, down the driveway of the castle.
The ceremony was beautifully decorated with flowers and thoughtfully laid out. The couple had their names projected above the ceremony for added dramatic effect! See the picture to see how it looked! They had an owl swoop down the aisle to deliver the rings to the best man, they had the most fantastic string quartet I’ve ever seen! They had drinks, food, smoke bombs, tequila and everything in between. Oh, and did I mention that they were both stunning!
What we were trying to do
The effect we were going for in this film was dramatic and moody. The couple had smoke for the photoshoot so I tried to play about with using the smoke in different shots and transition them together with a misty gothic style. The early few shots were shot separately by Sarah and myself, and the silhouette style works very nicely all drawn together.
The final aerial shot was obtained during sunset with the British flag flapping in the wind overlooking the backdrop of the stunning Cheshire countryside. All in all I’m pretty proud of this one! Sarah and I would like to wish Nicole and Oliver all the best in everything that they do in the future. We loved every second of filming this one and hope that when the highlights and full edits come out, they will be able to enjoy them for the rest of their lives.
