Rebecca & Joe’s Manor House Wedding
My first wedding video of the 2023 wedding season was the lovely Rebecca and Joe, who had their day at the Manor House Hotel, Alsager. Nestled in the heart of the East Cheshire countryside, The Manor House Hotel is fairly local to me. Whilst it is nice to travel across the UK for wedding videographer, it is also really nice being local to home, so I do always enjoy filming a wedding in the North West.
The day began with me filming establishing shots around the venue, and the weather was kind enough for me to get some drone footage too. It wasn’t long before Joe and his groomsmen arrived, along with the first few guests. During guest arrivals I tend to just act as a fly on the wall, and document the day, naturally. Early in the day guests can be quite wary of a videographer being about, so I try to keep subtle and give them some time to settle in to the day.
Manor House Wedding Ceremony
Before long it was time for the wedding ceremony. I always like to be set up and ready to go well before the ceremony begins; that way it’s much more relaxing for me, which in turn is more relaxing for the bride and groom. Rebecca looked absolutely breathtaking in her gown, and Joe was blown away. They tied the knot, and it was official, they were husband and wife!
Manor House Wedding Reception
After the ceremony we headed outside for a confetti shot, and then the newlyweds had a chance to mingle with the guests. The weather was lovely and crisp, albeit a little cold, but this meant that the guests were able to enjoy some time outdoors.
Jack, from Wild Blue Photography, was the couples chosen wedding photographer, and I had a great time working alongside him to get some couples portraits. We even had some smoke bombs, which looked epic! If you’re interested in getting some wedding smoke bomb video shots then I’d highly recommend the ones from Enola Gaye.
During the drinks reception I headed to the wedding breakfast room, where I captured all of the little details put together by It’s All About Me Me Me venue decor. I always like to ensure I’ve captured room decor, as I think these are often the bits couples don’t get a full chance to look at on their wedding day. I know from my own wedding that I enjoyed looking back at the table decor, as we’d put a lot of thought into it!
It was huge pleasure to be Rebecca and Joe’s wedding videographer for the day, what a fantastic way to start the 2023 wedding season. I’m looking forward to a very busy year, and excited to see what 2023 has in store for weddings.
