Aldwark Manor – Wedding Photography and Video

Wedding Films, Weddingson August 30th, 20121 Comment

We arrived at Aldwark Manor on a sunny morning in June to photograph & video Laura & Lukes wedding. After taking a few shots at the church we headed up to the hotel to find the fire alarm going off and people walking out of the hotel to gather in the car park. I asked the staff if it was a real alarm and was told it was but after a couple of minutes we were told that it was safe to return as there was no fire – TFFT.
Laura was in the bridal suite getting ready totally unfazed by the alarm (that I said I’d set off on my way up to the room to help build a bit of excitement for the day ahead) and looking super excited as everyone was buzzing about getting everything ready.

After that the day ran smoothly and we had some lovely sunshine as we exited the church and headed back up to Aldwark for group shots. As we started the first few groups a very large black cloud started to head our way and we could hear the rumble of thunder with the odd flash of lighting up the sky, we had to move quickly and managed to get through all the groups including a shot of everyone before it reached us.

The big decision now was do we risk going for a walk with Laura & Luke and risk getting caught in a bit of a storm, the decision was left with our amazing couple who said ‘yeah let’s do it’. Brilliant! Off we went. We’d spotted a couple of different and interesting backgrounds to use and just as we arrived at the location (which was only a 4 minute walk from the main hotel) the heavens opened and we had a mini tropical storm with some real thunder (which gave us an opportunity to whip out Nicoles special umbrella that she’d brought with her should such an occasion arise).
At this point I’m thinking (as Laura & Luke are under the cover of our location) I need to run and get the car to ferry them back but they wanted to walk in the rain back to the hotel. Well I have to say these guys absolutely rock and I award them best Bride & Groom of the year because they were just laughing walking back and it made for a great set of images.
I think Diane, Nicole & myself all got a bit soaked but Laura & Luke managed to stay reasonably dry (well Lauras dress may have got a bit wet at the bottom) and once we were all back in the hotel the weather was soon forgotten as the party got into full swing. We left after the first dance which in itself was brilliant and so suited to the couple, would’ve loved to have stayed and partied with everyone because all their family and friends were such lovely people.
Hope you enjoy the images and the highlights from the video!

A HUGE thanks to Nic for all your help on the day X

Some regular readers of our blog will be aware that we produced wedding films a few years ago and we’re now back on the case and filming them again.

We’ve always said that photography and video offer two completely different views of your day and I’ve got to say there’s nothing quite like some film highlights to bring a tear to your eye.

As you watch some of the films you’ll see we’ve cut in some stills that I took whilst Diane was capturing the moving footage, these are moments in time, split second decisions on hitting the shutter, to capture ‘the moment’.

If you look at the film footage you can clearly see that ‘the moment’ was no more than a millisecond, in fact it’s hard to see it in the footage it goes so fast – that takes a bit of skill, to capture that moment, the emotion, the smile etc as it isn’t always there, you need to know when to take that shot.

It’s often been said by our clients we seem to have a knack at capturing real emotions, see for yourself, make a judgement and leave a comment!
