I had been excited about this wedding day for a while! The main two reasons were because I knew Emily and Freddy had planned a day packed with fun and I was also returning to Hedsor House having just finished watching Fleabag.
Hedsor House is a truly stunning venue - especially for any wedding videographer! It is a Georgian mansion with over 100 acres of parkland! The grounds are beautiful to walk around and film the bride and groom portraits, there are a couple of stunning gardens to entertain the guests in and inside the actual house is a marvel. It is so well decorated and maintained that any angle you film from looks great. Every wedding film I have created here I have been proud of. There have been many films actually shot at Hedsor with The Golden Compass and Quartet to name a couple.
The day started brightly outside the main house by filming a few establishing shots before I went upstairs to join Emily and her bridal party. The mood was excited and the bubbles were flowing! The ceremony was held at the church on the grounds which is accessed by a lovely, short walk through some woodland. The rest of the day was spent back up at the main house, starting with the guests being spoilt by a gin bar and some live music. The speeches were conducted after dinner and there was great fun with everyone being treated to some traditional Swedish singing (which may have involved drinking!) afterwards. The evening went off with bang and I filmed some hilarious wedding photo booth action.
My favourite part of the day was sneaking out through dinner to film a few portrait shots with Emily and Freddy as the sun was setting - a really warm colour was breaking through the trees to create a beautiful soft light to film with. This was all alongside my photographer buddy Guy Hearn, who also made the most of this great window of light.
Congratulations Emily & Freddy.
To create this wedding film in Berkshire was a real pleasure and wedding videography in Berkshire is a real treat!
