Celine & Joel
About the Couple
Venue – Ufton Court
Why do you want to capture your wedding on video?
To be able to relive all those special moments again and share with family and friends – it\’s also nice to see things that you might have been too busy to notice on the day!
Why did you pick us for your wedding videography?
We thought your films were touching and energetic from the start and were moved by the videos you have on your website.
You guys? …What do you do?..How do you spend your days?..What’s important in life?
Joel helps start ups who want to raise money through crowdfunding. He likes to cook and drink craft beer. Celine works in HR for the Civil Service. She likes to eat and sing. Together we enjoy trying new restaurants, watching a good Netflix box set and travelling – we\’re going to Japan for our honeymoon and can’t wait! We also have a cat who loves cuddles!
The proposal? …Tell me everything (all the gushy details)
We were in Florence for a long weekend and went for a walk to Michelangelo Plaza that has a beautiful view of the city. Half way up the hill, we stopped at a garden and had a wander and found a bench where we took some picture of the view. Joel then told Celine he had a surprise and for her to close her eyes – when she opened them he was down on one knee and Celine was in floods of happy tears – and very surprised!
So, Ufton Park in Berkshire? … Why this place above anywhere else?
We wanted to get married in a barn but we also wanted people to have easy access to the venue from London as a lot of our friends live here but we also have family and friends travelling internationally so we wanted to be fairly close to Heathrow. We also didn\’t want a long engagement and so when Ufton told us they were available on the anniversary of our engagement we rushed over to see it. When we arrived, the barn was set up for a wedding that day and had the cosy feel that we wanted…and Celine couldn\’t resist the fairlylights surrounding the walls and hanging from the roof! Even better, the venue is an educational trust so all venue fees go directly to helping the kids who attend activities there during the week.
What experience do you want to give to your guests?
We want everyone to have fun and enjoy themselves! We also want to be able to spend a bit of quality time with all our guests so that everyone can remember a special moment with us that day!
