Wedding Preview: Michelle & Jon 19.03.11

This is it! My first ever wedding preview movie! After all these months of telling people that I am shooting weddings now I can finally prove it!

This wedding preview is of the awesome couple Michelle and Jon. If anyone has looked at my blog before you may have noticed their engagement movie I shot back in September last year. I met Mich (as everyone calls her) and Jon through Anna my lovely wife as she was booked to photograph the wedding. I had recently decided that I wanted to get into shooting weddings so I sheepishly asked Mich and Jon if they would mind me filming them on their engagement shoot with Anna. They agreed so off we went and my first ever engagement film was produced. Mich and Jon never intended to have a videographer at their wedding as they are a super cool couple and didn’t want a cheesy traditional two hour video with heart shaped transitions and soft focus! After seeing the movie I made of the engagement shoot they changed their minds and asked if I would shoot their wedding and I jumped at the chance.

Mich and Jon had an amazing day but it was not without its drama. Michelle and her father got stopped by the police for speeding on their way to the church in the bright yellow London cab they had hired to get them there. The police were not in the wedding spirit as they fined the driver a fixed penalty. Anyway they finally arrived at St John the Baptist church Ault Hucknall for the service which was lovely. Afterwards it was on to Blackbrook House for the reception in the same cab but this time making sure they were driving at the correct speed the whole way.

Anna and I had a great day photographing and filming their wedding and despite a brief run-in with the law it did not detract from a beautiful and fun day. Mich and Jon are the cutest couple and are absolutely made for each other. Editing their wedding movie made Anna and I cry more than once.

I hope you enjoy the preview, I would love your comments
