Thank you so much for the video. I can’t tell you how much Dan and I enjoyed watching it back. We did exactly as you said, no phones, a large glass of wine and enjoyed the film. So, so brilliant. We can’t thank you enough. We’re hoping to host a ‘screening’ this weekend with all our family who we know are equally dying to watch it!
Bocconoc House will always be a special venue to me, as it’s where I filmed my first wedding around 10 years (!!) ago, at the tender age of 20. That film was my main promotional piece for years, and even though i’ve filmed around 450 weddings since, I remember every single detail about the day, (mainly my nerves), and every detail about the film. Anywho. Present day. This time around is was Beth & Dans turn to host their wedding at Boconnoc, and they did it in style. It’s one of those venues that is far from the blank canvas that other couples desire, the canvas is what it is, and you’d be crazy to change anything about this stately home with a contemporary twist.
I was working alongside the lovely photographer, Debs Ivelja, who i’ve been working with for years now, even though a few years may pass without seeing each other, it’s always a lovely surprise to see her smiley face on the morning of a wedding. The weather on the day was mainly sunny and dry, but whenever we needed it to be dry, there would be an almighty shower (i.e walking to the onsite church, trying todo the confetti, trying todo group photos etc etc), then when everyone was inside the sun would pop back out. Ideal.
I remember music being important to both Beth & Dan, so they had not 1 but 2 bands. One stands out in my memory, The Juke Joints, who walked about during the meal and did a very energetic unplugged, naturally everyone downed tools and jumped up on the tables. I hope the clips in the highlights video do the energy of that justice.
