Why do you want to capture your wedding on video?
I hear the wedding day just goes by so quickly so we wanted to have something where we can look back and relive the place – very different feel to just looking at photos!
Why did you pick us?
When we chatted to Tom he seemed very relaxed and knew what he was talking about. Also have watched a number of the videos and we liked what we saw!
You guys? …What do you do?..How do you spend your days?..What’s important in life? etc etc
Mike and I were both accountants. We met at KPMG where we were both working as tax advisers, mike was my boss so we had to sneak around for a while! I then moved onto pursue a different career working for a hedge fund as a relationship manager – still in finance so a bit boring! We just do normal things I guess – I love my food so we eat out a lot and we both are big drinkers so down at the local pub quite a bit. Mike has 2 boys so we always look for things we can do with them, last weekend we went and did a sushi making course! Outside of that we like travelling, running, watching movies/musicals etc.
The proposal? …Tell me everything (all the gushy details)
It was so not romantic. Mike came to me one day and said we’ve been together a while I know you want kids so we should prob get married soon – this was in 2016. We sat down and drew up a timeline and agreed a time to get married (may/June 2018 and here we are) and mike set himself a deadline of 6 months to propose so no surprise element really! The proposal itself was well planned, booked a surprise weekend to Venice (before the deadline) and proposed at st marcs basilica, he went down on one knee but jumped up so quickly I thought he was doing a jump squat!
The Venue/s? … Why this place above anywhere else?
We bought our house about a year ago, we love it and don’t plan on moving anywhere else so thought it would be really special to tie the knot where we will live the rest of our lives. Talbot has the same feel to our house, old, rustic, and chilled. I fell in love with it when I saw it!
What experience do you want to give to your guests?
We just want people to have a good time – good food, more than enough drinks, and plenty of entertainment!
