Carillon Miami Wedding Video by Ben Marlow

Christmas Eve in Miami

Normally in the lead up to Christmas we’re getting the  boys presents together, desperately trying to get through out wedding video edit backlog before the 25th, heading to Majestic to make sure our wine stocks are high enough… But not last year. While I was still busy with the usual tasks, Ben was heading over to Peru and from Peru directly to Miami, where he stayed until Christmas Eve, chilling in the sun and filming this Promotional Carillon Miami Wedding Video. I guess when you weigh up Christmas shopping in Maidenhead with being put up in 5 star luxury, it’s not too difficult a choice…

Edinburgh, warm by night

I know that Brits talk about the weather too much. But I’m still going to open with it anyway. We were filming an Edinburgh wedding video. This was a wedding in April. A wedding in April in Scotland. April showers? NO! Did the sun come out? YES! Was it cold? NO! NOT EVEN AT NIGHT! And Flora + Jack so deserved it. Because rarely do you meet such lovely, kind, funny, genuine people. To be around them is to smile more!! If anyone had the karma points to keep the wind and the rain away from a Scottish April wedding, it was these two*

Top Speeches

My brother was Jack’s best man. I knew he’d been fairly nervous about his speech. I wasn’t worried for him at all, he was always going to deliver. But… then I heard Flora’s dad’s speech… And then I heard Jack’s speech… Both were so funny, charming and heartwarming. Through teary eyes… I was worrying for my brother. But of course he still smashed it.

These were honestly some of the best speeches I have ever seen. I’ve welled up each time I’ve heard Jack’s speech. And that’s about 20 times through the editing process… :’ )

 

this is not to say that our rainy-wedding-day couples were rained on because of bad karma points. Weather is definitely a matter of luck, and not of karma.

Beverley Minster Wedding Video

Amy’s been telling me for years, when she gets married she wants us to make the wedding video. Which means I’d been looking forward to this wedding for years. And I always knew it was going to be amazing. But still, nothing had quite prepared me for Beverley Minster. Or for how amazing Amy was going to look… Pair the two and you’ve got one hell of an arrival-of-the-bride.

Beverley Minster & Rise Hall, Yorkshire Wedding Video

 Yorkshire Sun

It’s no secret that Yorkshire is beautiful. As soon as we hit the Yorkshire countryside with rolling hills of green and yellow, we started getting excited. The thing is, the countryside up there is beautiful in any weather, but we were in for a whole weekend of beautiful sunshine. It was so stunning, that Ben was up both mornings at the crack of dawn to grab some shots. Beautiful hazy sunrises behind Rise Hall and Yorkshire Minster were not to be ignored…

It was such a pleasure to be part of Amy + Tom’s wedding. Everyone was happy, everyone was having fun, and everything was beautiful. From Floral Lounge’s flowers lining the staircase, to the impressive TRIO of cakes from Juniper Cakery. We just hope the video does it justice 😉

South East Wedding Video

Ben and I met Carlene in Colombia, when we were there for our mutual friend’s Cartagena wedding, in the beautiful Catedral de Santa Catalina de Alejandría. We had a week in a beautiful old monastery with a pool in the courtyard and home made Bloody Marys every morning for breakfast. It was amazing! We got on on holiday and kept in touch when we got back. And that was it. The friendship was firmly rooted. And just to make sure, we introduced her to our good friend Andrew. So now they’re married and she’s stuck with us! Woohoo!

Lens Whacking

We made this short video as a wedding gift for the couple. The whole video was shot using lens whacking (using a lens that is not fixed to the camera). It’s a bit erratic, but the soft, fleeting focus and the light spillages make it dreamy and a little bit magic.

Chicago Wedding Video

Where to start with this Chicago Wedding Video… Where to start with the wedding of Kori Schulman and Paul Kendrick…?

It was pretty spectacular…

Counting our Lucky Stars

Ben and I felt so lucky to be a part of this weekend. In fact, we turned to each other countless times throughout our long weekend in Chicago and said “we’re so lucky that we do this for a living”. Not only when we were cycling along next to lake Michigan or eating deep pan pizza at Lou Melnatti’s; not only when we were watching live blues music at howl to the moon or when we were tucking into the delicious Park Hyatt breakfasts overlooking Chicago city; not only when we were tucking into Eli’s Cheesecakes at the family’s factory or drinking old fashioneds with old friends.  We were saying this to each other when we were deep into a demanding, 14 hour shoot on Kori and Paul’s wedding day. There was no rest for the wicked, but who needs rest when you’re having such a good time? There’s a reason both of us were still on the dance floor at 2am…

Families

You’d be pretty hard pushed to find a family as warm, welcoming, funny and interesting as the Schulmans. Except, of course, if you’re at the wedding of Kori and Paul. In which case – you’d find the Kendricks! We’ve rarely felt so welcomed and it was a real honour and pleasure to have met these two families, and to have been part of this wedding. From the moment the Mother of the Bride, Maureen Schulman, sent us the first email asking if we were available to film this Chicago wedding video, we knew this was going to be something special! Maureen has quickly become one of our favourite people! And our favourite MOB to date!

Interfaith Marriage

Interfaith marriages are always our favourite. There’s little more uplifting than seeing families from different religions embracing each other and celebrating traditions and beliefs alongside each other. Kori and Paul’s ceremony may just be the most beautiful, meaningful and charming ceremony we’ve ever seen.

Morgan Manufacturing

After a first look at Seneca Park and a couple’s shoot around the city, the ceremony and reception were held at Morgan Manufacturing. The venue was incredible. And the flowers and details on display were chosen to match. I’m not going to try and describe it anymore than that! If you want to see how incredible it is, just take a look at the video 🙂
