On September 1st, the Dave Spink Photography team had the opportunity to return to a favourite venue. Aysha and Michael were getting married at the spectacular Oulton Hall, a venue that we’ve frequently visited for photography. This time around, the team were headed out to create a wedding video for the happy couple.
The team arrived early doors to capture the arrival of the guests, who were socialising out on the patio, taking full advantage of the beautiful sunshine. The moments that the Dave Spink Wedding Videographers captured showed some of the stunning colours of the wonderful day.
One of the members of our team was then invited up to the bridal suite to capture the tender moment of the father of the bride seeing Aysha in her wedding dress for the first time, before accompanying the bride downstairs to prepare for her entrance through the grand doorway of the Repton Room.
Meanwhile downstairs, a second member of the team captured the heightened buzz of guests, the growing anticipation on the face of the dapperly-dressed groom: Michael.
Every seat in the room was occupied, eyes fixed on the couple as they exchanged vows and rings. The register was signed, and then the couple took their first walk as a married couple back up the aisle.
The wedding party then convened out in the gardens. A pianist played a medley of songs to set the mood, while champagne was handed out. The video team spread out across the area to unobtrusively capture the moments taking place around them. The beauty of Oulton Hall’s gardens set a beautiful backdrop for Aysha, Michael, and their guests, as they made the most of the wonderful weather.
Our team joined the couple as they had photographs taken, ensuring that they would be able to look back on the joking and laughter that accompanied each still.
As soon as the Wedding Breakfast room was available, one of the members of our team went inside to document all of the unique details chosen by Aysha and Michael to celebrate their special day. From a cake crowned with wooden birds, circus tickets as place-settings, to tables named after animals, the room was transformed completely into their own.
The bride, groom, and guests soon entered the room, taking their seats and looking over the wedding favours, which consisted of a thoughtful playlist of Aysha and Michael’s favourite songs (including Queens Of The Stone Age, Beyonce and Desire, to name a few).
Speeches can often be one of the most humorous times of the day, and Aysha and Michael’s speakers were no exception. One gag from the Best Man included Michael being gifted with a Guitar, that was soon revealed to be a fetching pink ukelele.
Soon, the guests returned outside and the wedding video team joined them, capturing such highlights as the intense games of giant Connect 4 and croquet. Aysha and Michael had also asked for video messages from their guests, so between games, we utilised the stunning backdrop of the gardens to give the newlyweds some touching words from their attendees on their special day.
The bride and groom then took off in style, racing around the Oulton Hall grounds in a golf cart, as their evening guests began to arrive. The Oulton Suite was turned around from Wedding Breakfast to Evening Reception, and the room transformed into perfect evening venue, with soft-purple lit walls, golden caged candles, and star-like lights twinkling above.
For the Dave Spink Photography video team, the evening drew to a close after the cutting of the cake and a slow, sentimental first dance.
The wedding was beautiful, and we were honoured to be a part of such a special day for the couple. We hope you enjoy watching their day above, as much as we enjoyed watching it unfold.
