Helen & Matt : a Same Day Edit

Early on Saturday morning we set off from Sheffield to Boston Spa near Leeds to capture Helen getting ready at her parents’ home for her wedding to Matt.  Helen was having her hair done and was properly excited! We were soon joined by Matt Lollar, the photographer with whom we shot Helen and Matt’s engagement shoot just a few weeks earlier. The whole day went by in a breeze, not a single hiccup. Helen’s wedding dress was not at all the kind of dress she thought she’d get, but once she tried it on, she fell in love and I can totally understand why. Her dress just oozed classic elegance and grace.

Then there was the ceremony at St Mary’s church in Boston Spa. A brass band played Jeremiah Clarke’s Trumpet Voluntary as Helen made her entrance, as a trumpet player myself even I couldn’t help but get a little emotional at that point. Afterwards, a quick photo shoot back at the house and off they went to Tankersley Manor near Sheffield for the reception. Then it was time for me to retreat into the edit suite and start editing Helen and Matt’s Same Day Edit film. I had some great shots from the prep that I knew would bring the house down, thanks to Helen’s dad, so the edit was easy and fun for me.  At 8.50pm, right on the dot, about 180 guests gathered to watch it and true to form, the Same Day Edit did exactly what it was supposed to do: laughs, tears and amazement! Success!

No rest for the wicked, and we were straight back to filming the first dance and then one of our favourite bands, the Bootleggers, brought the house down! That was one good wedding!

    Amazing video – brings back all the emotion of the day which will be treasured for a long time to come. You worked in a truly professional and inobtrusive way with a great result that brought the house down when the video was shown in the evening. Trust my husband to provide the entertainment! Job very well done!
