The creative brief for the wedding film was to make it magical, ethereal and romantic. For this wedding, we booked in one of our top cinematographers, Matt, to cover the wedding of Jonathan & Harpreet on the 7th October 2017. The setting was at the fairytale like Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire.
We started the morning covering the the outside shots of the venue and the groomsmen taking in the stunning Vista.
By 12 o’clock Matt started taking some of the stunning drone shots of the venue you can see in the video. As the bride was just in her wedding gown Matt focused his attention on the bride and the details before making his way to the groom. After the bride and groom prep was done he made his way to the entrance and worked on in the suite surrounded by the medieval suits of Armour and sampling the tasty food. Following this, Matt, captured the beautiful setting of the ceremony room before prepping the cameras for the big moment.
Followed by the flower girl and beautiful bridesmaids, the bride made her grand entrance with her father, while Jon the groom waited with anxious excitement.
Matt made sure to capture their joyous union from all angles. The newlyweds then made their exit to a shower of multicoloured rose petals. The groomsmen and groom made their way to the cannons outside for a fun photoshoot whilst Matt went on to capture the rest of the stunning interior.
Following this, Matt captured the couple strolling through the beautiful gardens for their couple shoot. Matt then captured the couples entrance to the wedding breakfast whilst also capturing the guests enjoying the festivities in a documentary style. Captured the speeches which were full of laughter and joy. Finally it was time for the reception, where the couple changed into traditional hindi dress.Following a procession of drums the groom cut the cake with a medieval sword and then the couple had their first dance on a dance floor shrouded in smoke. At the end the guests, carrying sparklers, and couple made their way to the cannons which were fired off in a traditional ceremony done at the castle.
All in all it was a true fairytale wedding and then team thoroughly enjoyed capturing this amazing celebration. We would like to say a big thank you to Jonathan and Harpreet for inviting us to film their wedding. It was a beautiful and spectacular wedding.
