Why did you want a wedding video & why did you choose us?
We decided that after all is done on the day, we didn’t just want the photographs to look back on as a reminder. We know that the day will be over in the blink of an eye, and having a video capturing the most important moments can be cherished forever. And moving imagery captures so much more than a photograph, we felt we had to. Especially after seeing your work! We chose you because of the abstract nature of your work, capturing the emotion of the day naturally. We also loved the speeches/readings being played over the scenic shots of the venue/guests etc.
A bit about Rachel + David (in their own words)
We’re both quite laid back (until about 2 weeks ago…) we love chilling, watching sport (formula 1), music is really important to us. Rachel very much into indie and rock. We think we are a little quirky, we don’t really like the boring and ordinary. But we’re classical too – not fans of gimmicks etc. We love to travel, nothing too adventurous. Italy is our passion.
Proposal was at Loch Lomond – David had created a video of lots of our photographs and time together – he even filmed himself asking Rachel’s dad for permission. He showed Rachel the video at Loch Lomond then got down on one knee.
Why did you choose Lartington Hall?
We originally wanted to get married in Florence, it is our favourite city in the world. But logistics and cost for guests made it out of reach. We struggled with the idea of getting married at home as we hadn’t seen any venues that we really wanted to visit. Then David’s friend got married at Lartington and his photographs were online. We decided to go to the open day (which luckily was the next day) and we fell in love with the place as so as we stepped through the door. Its elegance, its charm, the candles everywhere, the smells – its an amazing place and we knew instantly we wanted to get married there.
What experience do you hope your guests have on the big day?
We want them to have a relaxed day, surrounded by beauty and charm – great music, drinks, food and surroundings to make the day as happy as possible.
