My first visit to Salmesbury Hall as a wedding videographer couldn’t have gone any better. Firstly because Stephanie and Martin are the kind of down to earth people who just want to have fun, and secondly because my buddies Pete and Laura Lawson were in charge of photography. Salmesbury is an amazing historic venue with my kind of light. Old family portraits hang on the walls, there’s dark wood panelling everywhere, and the rooms are kept warm with big roaring fires.
I met Stephanie and her bridesmaids in the Salmesbury Lodge as they prepared for the big day and most of the morning was filled with laughter as the girls tried to present Steph with all kinds of things to make up her “borrowed and blue” ensemble. Despite the rain, the girls walked from the lodge bearing white umbrellas, over to the hall where Martin was nervously waiting. Candles glowed, fires crackled, music played. Florists Flower Design had done a beautiful display of blooms and miniature birds and the rooms all looked incredible.
Once the I Do’s were over, there was time for prosecco, some confetti and finally the sun came out just in time for portraits! Huzzah.
It was my absolute pleasure to be Stephanie and Martin’s wedding videographer, so thanks to them for having the faith to let me loose at their big celebration.
This is their wedding film… click play, HD and sit back and smile.
