We had a great day filming Robby and Sammi Ellis’ wedding at Newhall Vineyards in Essex, on what could only be described as a day of typical British weather. We had cloudy skies and rain but the lack of sunshine certainly failed to dampen anyone’s mood!
Myself and second videographer, Ben, left ours at 7.30am and made the journey to Purleigh, to start filming some exterior shots of the Barn, and some detailed shots inside the venue. It was here we met the photographer Anna, who proved to work with us fantastically, staying out of each others way so we could all get the shots we wanted. After roughly 45 minutes we headed to The Limes in Maldon where Sammi and her bridesmaids were getting ready.
After getting all the shots we needed we headed back to the venue. It wasn’t known until the day whether the ceremony was going to be held outside amongst the vineyards, or within the Railway Barn, due to the uncertain weather forecast. However it was eventually decided that the ceremony would take place indoors, and the barn proved to be a great setting and the right call as the rain really came down as the ceremony began.
Fortunately enough though the rain dispersed for long enough for the group photos to be taken outside, and we were really happy to film the newlyweds out in the sunshine. The rain quickly returned but that didn’t stop everyone having fun. Despite Sammi being in her wedding dress, she made the most of the rain and danced around in it, it was amazing to film, as a bit of rain wasn’t going to get in the way of spoiling the special day.
Ben and I carried on filming with the speeches and then some dancing action. The evening was awesome, there was a really good vibe about the place and everyone was having a great time. After approximately 12 hours of filming, once we were very happy with all the footage captured, Ben and I headed home.
If you’re considering having a wedding highlight film then please feel free to get in touch, and we’ll happily discuss what we can offer for you. When we provide you with the highlight film, we also send over files covering the full length of speeches, as we know how great these can be to look back at.
