A Wedding Marryoke in the Cotswolds...

With our advert featuring in the upcoming Cotswold's Bride magazine we thought we'd re-visit one of our couples from earlier this year who are also gracing the glossy pages of the Cotswolds classiest yearly review, Nic and Felipe. We don't get many January wedding video bookings but when we do they tend to be something a little bit different. Nic and Felipe's wedding was a riot, a big egg shaped ball of welsh fun.

The wedding was great; full of energy and laughter. Nic looked absolutely stunning and really sparkled in front of the camera. Felipe, much like myself on my wedding day and 90% of grooms looked a little uncomfortable on camera. Thankfully we managed to keep ourselves discreet for most of the day and captured some lovely moments between the two of them that you can see in the wedding video highlights.

What made this wedding a little different was the wedding video marryoke that we shot. This wasn't our first and I'm sure it won't be our last. It's not something we promote as wedding videographers but it is something we can do. Nic, Felipe and their guests were all well up for performing, and a laugh, which is pretty essential when you are asking people to mime to a Queen classic.

Anyone, photographer, guest, bride and groom, videographer, that's been to a wedding at the Great Tythe Barn in Tetbury, Gloucestershire will tell you that it's a fantastic venue set in lovely grounds with a really intimate feel to it, and it is. But try filming a marryoke in the barn and you'll soon discover that having just the one undressed room above the dance floor to shoot the majority of a wedding video marryoke and you'll soon be cursing English weather in January.

It took all of our skills and experience to get the very best footage we could under difficult circumstances. Take a look at Nic and Felipe's wedding marryoke and you can see how our endeavours on the day and in the edit room turned out. It was tough, and far from perfect from our point of view but Nic & Felipe were absolutely delighted with the final wedding video and at the end of the day that's all that matters.  They sent us a lovely thank you card as well which is always welcome.
