Nikki & Nath: Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding
In July I had the pleasure of filming the wedding of Nikki and Nath. The couple chose Sandhole Oak Barn in Congleton, a breathtaking location to celebrate their wedding. It’s always a joy going back to Sandhole Oak Barn to video weddings, the bride and groom definitely picked the perfect place. I also had the opportunity to work alongside the wonderful photographer, Scott Sharman again!
One of my favourite moments of the day was when I was shooting Nikki getting ready at Sandhole Oak Barn. I get to video spectacular moments as the bridal party interact during preparations. It also gives me a great opportunity to get to know the bridesmaids. Shortly after Nath and his groomsmen arrived, so I was able to get some fantastic shots of Nath getting ready for his bride.
Nikki and Nath personalised their wedding day in the cutest ways, the first thing I picked up on was the famous ‘Grape Soda’ pin from Disney’s UP! Nath actually proposed to Nikki at Victoria Falls (the location from the film) so it was really awesome to see the little hints to UP throughout the day.
Nikki and Nath tied the knot in the Oak Barn, at Sandhole Oak Barn and it was a heartwarming ceremony amongst family and friends. I will always relish the opportunity to cover ceremonies like this in Cheshire. They had some really beautiful readings from two of their friends – I always love a nice reading in a ceremony. We also had a special guest star from Doug, Nikki and Nath’s dog, who was tasked with the special job of bringing the rings, much to the guests surprise. Nikki and Nath didn’t tell their guests that Doug would be making a special appearance, so the room filled with laughter when he came bounding down the aisle.
After the ceremony Nikki and Nath spent the wedding reception mingling with their guests, accompanied by some beautiful piano music. Drinks were served generously for guests to enjoy. I enjoy drifting among the guests to take the best shots and witness the stories unfold as the hours go by.
Summer weddings let me get the best of each moment. The sun shone for most of the day, which made Nikki and Nath really happy, and really brought out the colours in and around Sandhole Oak Barn.
Next, it was time for the speeches, I think they are one of the highlights of the day. You really do learn a lot about the wedding party during the speeches, so they’re always really fun to capture. The guests then enjoyed a delicious three course dinner before the evening reception began and they partied the night away!
You couldn’t wish for a more perfect day for Nikki and Nath and I thoroughly enjoyed telling their story.
