Alex & Mariam

by Martin Sylvester

Alex & Mariam chose us for their Wedding on the 9th September 2017. Their chosen venue was at the De Vere Horwood Estate in Milton Keynes. They wanted an upbeat wedding highlights film and full documentary film covering their big day with loved ones in an intimate gathering.


Our lead photographer, Martin, travelled up to the beautiful estate with one of our freelance videographers on a bright sunny morning on the 9th September. When they arrived they started off by capturing the bridal preparations.

After capturing details of the wedding dress and wedding jewellery and then some footage of the make-up, our wedding videographer – Jack – headed off to setup the camera equipment in the ceremony room. Martin stayed with the bridal party to capture the rest of the preparations and to capture some images of the family members before joining the videographer.

The team coordinated with each other to determine the best angles so they didn’t end up in each others frames but still ensuring we captured all of the fine details of the ceremony.

Following the ceremony, Martin quickly captured the family greetings in a second room behind the ceremony hall. The team then coordinated with a family friend to capture the family photoshoot on the grounds of the estate. After completing this, the team headed to the reception hall for the wedding breakfast.



The team captured the couples entrance at the wedding breakfast and following a quick speech from a couple of the family members, the couple took an hour break to rest up before the reception for later that evening. The team took the opportunity to capture visuals of the venue with the drone while Martin captured images of the venue, both inside and out. The couple had arranged a bouncing castle and other outside games not just for the younger ones.

Following this the team headed back to the reception hall to capture the rest of the reception and emotional speeches from the bride’s best friend and the grooms best man;  halfway through the dinner closer to sunset time, Martin convinced the couple for a quick shoot outside, capturing some truly magnificent images of the lovely couple.

After this the team went back to the reception hall and captured the guests in a documentary style, laughing and enjoying the celebrations. Finally the team captured the cutting of the cake, the first dance, and live band.

Overall the day was a huge success, with our clients over the moon with their stunning photos and videos.  Please have a look at the small sample below and the larger wedding gallery of their special day below the highlights film.
