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.
We had an amazing day filming Mr and Mrs Cleminson’s Wedding. A beautiful sunny day in Ongar, Essex. Here’s the Highlight Video below! They also opted to have Video Messages recorded, which we delivered in a separate video.
The reception was held on the couple’s farm which was such a picturesque location and the ceremony was held at the Parish Church of St Germain Bobbingworth, just a 5 minute drive from the reception.
The Church was lovely and welcoming in an ideal setting in the middle of the Ongar Countryside. We were slightly restricted with where we could stand to film during the ceremony, however we still managed to get some great shots, and we have to respect the Minister’s wishes! The photographers were brilliant, we spoke earlier in the day about helping each other out by trying our best to stay out of each other’s shots and they really followed through with their consideration. Filming a ceremony can be a bit tricky if the Photographer’s are jumping in and out of your shots, but these guys were very respectful.
Every part of the day ran smoothly. Myself and talented freelancer Ben, left for the road at 07.30, arriving at Tim and Chanelle’s house an hour later. We wrapped up filming around 21:30, so it was a long day, but we loved every minute of it!
Here’s the review left for us on our Facebook Page by Tim, the groom:
‘We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending MTMTEFilm! Extremely professional, creative and friendly and willing to go the extra mile to catch every magic moment at our wedding. I have no ideas how MTMTEFIlm managed to condense a whole day into a short film and capture everything but they did!’
Feel free to contact us to discuss the filming of your wedding.
Hello! So it’s our first blog post here on MTMTEFILM and we thought we would write about our latest piece of work; Mr and Mrs Milliken’s Wedding, here’s a quick reflection of the day.
It was our first Wedding of the year and what a delightful couple they proved to be. Greg and one of our talented freelancer’s Rob produced for them a ‘Highlight Video’ (A video covering all the best bits of the day from getting ready early in the morning till the dance action in the evening). We arrived ready to film at 09:00 and packed away our gear at 21:00 so a 12 hour day but when we love our job it’s no bother at all! The Ceremony was held at Howlands Baptist Church and the reception at Chesfield Downs Golf Course in Stevenage on what proved to be a lovely spring day.
There was a slight hiccup in the morning when the bride to be Barbara, had thought that the Check Out time at the Vista Tower Hotel, where her and her bridesmaids were getting ready, was at 12:00pm, when in fact it was 10am. We were all kicked out as new guests were arriving and the room had to be cleaned. With no other rooms available, there was no option other than to find another hotel to finish off getting ready in. Luckily there was another hotel near by and the day ran smoothly from then on.
At one point when Barbara threw her bouquet in the air, she tripped and fell over but with credit to her she soon laughed it off and even suggested adding it to the video. The whole occasion proved to be a fun day and we thoroughly enjoyed editing all the clips together. You can watch this memorable moment and other funny pieces from the day at the end of the video. We hope you enjoy watching.
Here’s the Review left from the Groom James:
‘I can honestly say MTMTEFilm were a credit on our wedding day with their filming with capturing every single special moment. I would hugely recommend to anyone looking for filming any event especially the big day. Cannot Thank you enough ! ‘
