My second to last wedding of 2019

This wedding is the furthest I'll travel until I add mileage expenses, which is approx 3 hour drive.

Lucky for me I didn't have to be there u until 10am which I late start for me. Usually I'm filming bride prep around 8am.

Unlucky for me was I had another wedding the next day and I didn't leave Rowton Castle until 10pm.

I got home at 1am and had to backup all the SD cards from my cameras, drone and audio equipment. I probably didn't get to sleep until 2am, and got up again at 7am.

Anyway, back to the wedding day it's self! I was looking forward to filming at such a nice venue, and that was one of the reasons why I said YES to the booking. You brides say YES TO THE DRESS, us videographers say YES TO THE WEDDING VENUE lol!

I got some epic drone footage too. Luckily! Luckily? you ask, well after completing my Drone Ops Manual and doing the risk assessment and all my checks. Yes that's right, a lot goes into flying a drone. The National Police Support helicopter was doing some training, right above Rowton Castle, which I wasn't expecting.

Laura really wanted the drone footage and that was one of the reasons she booked me. I was able to find a gap in the day when I wasn't filming bride prep and the police helicopter had flown off for 5 mins. I would have loved to have filmed more but as soon as I heard the helicopter coming back I landed my drone, as safety comes first.

The day itself ran very smoothly, it was a very cold day and Laura and Adam decided to have the ceremony outside. I didn't mind as I'm paid to make sure I capture your special day.

I worked really well with the photographer Si, who is the residential photographer. he even asked me if I would film more here as we got on so well. I said YES, as long as I don't have anther wedding the next day.
