Sarah and Gareth’s Same Day Edit at Coworth Park, Ascot

On Saturday we were down in Ascot at the brand new Coworth Park for the wedding of Sarah and Gareth. And what a wedding it was! First of all the setting at Coworth Park is amazing, a beautiful mansion house and stunning gardens. Then there’s the marquee where the wedding breakfast and party took place, which is quite grand too. But the way it was all decorated made it really stand out, the eventplanners at TLC did an amazing job. The flower arrangements, I’m not sure you can actually still call them just flower “arrangements”, were out of this world, exquisite!

Then there were the people. Sarah and Gareth, what a lovely couple they were. After 9 years of being together they finally tied the knot. They booked us based upon the recommendation of their friends Laura and Ken whose wedding we filmed 2 years before. There was a delightful personalised reading by bridesmaid Hannah and the 2 best men had a memorable double act going for their speech. Then there was the friendliest staff at Coworth Park; Declan the hairdresser who stayed all day making sure the bride’s and bridesmaids’ hair looked gorgeous at all times; the incredible string quartet Siren and a fabulously fun band in the evening; the photographer Kevin Wilson who we also worked with at Laura and Ken’s wedding and is great to work with; finally there was David Collins, the marvelous toastmaster who made the run smoothly.

But for me, the most memorable thing about this wedding will probably be the record time in which I had to do a Same Day Edit. The schedule was always going to be tight, but manageable, with a screening originally planned at about 9pm. However, things were running ahead of schedule and the coordinator wanted a screening closer to 8pm. That was impossible, so with a little gentle persuasion, we agreed on 8.30pm. I managed to get the edit done in 1h50 (I actually spent 10 minutes of that time running back and forth between the mansion house and the marquee to get some extra sound bites for the video), which is a record for me, usually I get about an hour more. The Same Day Edit was screened at 8.25pm! Laughter, tears and a standing ovation! Success!
