A lot of the time we get to shoot the pre wedding shoot at the venue where the couple are planning to get married which is fantastic for us to find out the best spots for photo opportunities on the day, especially if we have never been to that venue before. But for Chris & Dan, they wanted to go to the place that they got engaged at for their shoot – Clifton Suspension Bridge.
I love weddings me! Each one is different and this was no exception. We were looking forward to Kerry & James’ wedding already and when the day finally came we were not let down. There was just such a lovely feel to their wedding day that i’m going to find hard to describe in words here but then that’s why we take photos so that they can do the talking and tell you what it was like and how it felt. Even better, in this blog we are delighted to treat you to a special highlights film of their wedding too.
With a wedding on Easter Sunday this Easter holiday, we were free to do a pre wedding shoot on the Saturday with Kerry & James. Both of which were no stranger to Katy and myself as they are good friends of my sister and Kerry was bridesmaid at her wedding only last August. Kerry runs the local magazine Bishopston Matters which provides lots of useful information and community support for the Bishopston, Ashley Down, Horfield and St Andrews areas of Bristol. As a result the wedding will be very much a local affair with lots of help from the people she speaks with on a daily basis in the community such as the cafe hut in St Andrews Park that will be helping to supply some wooden chairs for the reception. We like this very much (more…)
A nice local venue for us; the Holiday Inn at Filton is just off junction 1 of the M32 and down the road from the main UWE Frenchay campus. We have filmed alot of weddings and corporate events here and so it only made sense that we exhibit at this event, their in-house fayre.
Well aware that the Sunday the fayre had fallen on was in fact Mothers’ Day we were not deterred to get up early and offer our photography and films to newly engaged couples. And as expected, the fayre wasn’t flooded with couples but there was a good turn out and we got to spend a decent amount of time with the visitors because of this which was really nice and gave the fayre a really calm atmosphere. Probably helped by the soothing notes of Marie France Riboulet who was providing the musical backdrop on her harp! We got to meet and chat to lots of other local suppliers such as Wayne from Kens Cars, Chris from Iced Magic, Karl from Aston Hue Photography and Bristol’s best Toastmasters – Babara Maggs and James Macleod. Take a look at our record of the day in photos!
Thanks to Ellie Nutall from the Holiday Inn at Filton for putting on the fayre – for those of you considering the venue make sure you speak to her, she is a very approachable and helpful young lady who will take care of your wedding day! We look forward to the next fayre Ellie!
Keeping up with technology in our profession is really hard work it has to be said. The rate at which new gadgets, formats and solutions are thrown at us is beguiling to say the least. But it’s important to stay aware of what’s going on so that we can deliver the best for our customers. One thing that has been on our minds is how we can deliver the highest quality end product.
All of our films have always been filmed in High Definition even when a lot of companies were still filming in SD we wanted to make sure that we were capturing weddings in the highest quality so that when the time came then we could deliver the highest quality still. That time has come. We now have the ability to deliver our wedding films in their original HD format to you on Blu Ray discs. Previously we have been able to only provide wedding films in Standard Definition on DVD. Now the resolution in HD on Blu Ray is significantly higher with more pixels taken advantage of and a much clearer image.
