Hannah and Alex’s wedding at Elmore Court in Gloucester was an extremely special day. The grade ii listed mansion has been owned by the Guise Baronets for 800 years but today it was taken over by the Howes and Montali’s for their fantastic wedding.
Our videographer started filming the bridal preparations in a gorgeous mansion room. Bridal preparations are a lovely start to a wedding video especially when the location is such a good one.
The ceremony was fantastic with some great poetry from the clockwork circus, a storytelling group the Howes are part of. With a family friend as the registrar the wedding had a unique relaxed atmosphere which really comes through in the video. We always film the ceremony with a static camera at the back. , usually the Sony G25 which is light, crisp and looks great in low light. This allows the videographer to change shot knowing there is another camera to cut to in the edit.
The reception drinks were in the grounds of the mansion, a perfect setting and the prosecco flowed. With our wedding videography we don’t set up any shots but often film the photographers at work and can get some good footage panning across the group shots.
The wedding breakfast was decorated beautifully and we were able to get some footage of the tables before the guests arrived. We tend not to film too much during the meal itself as no one really wants a video camera filming them while they are eating.
After the wedding breakfast it was time for the speeches which we filmed with two cameras to get both the speeches and reaction shots.
The final part of our day was the dancing and we were able to capture some lovely natural moments.
“Thank you! This is beautiful, it made me cry you have got so many wonderful little moments, it brought so many memories back!” Hannah
