We had an amazing time filming Sam and Richy’s big day on Saturday 27th September. From start to finish, this was just an awesome day filled with great moments and brilliant characters! It was a real privilege to be asked to film Sam and Richy’s special day and we had an absolute blast!
One of the things that really stood out for us was just how friendly and upbeat the guests at this wedding were. It was a pleasure to be around such positive people and it always makes our job that much easier.
Russ and I worked alongside a really impressive photography duo, Hannah and Toby of the UK renowned Red on Blonde Photography. All the images included in this blog post were taken by the skilled hands of Hannah and Toby.
As usual, we got off to an early start. Matt was in Callow End to film the bridal preparations, whilst Russ headed over to St Johns, Worcester in order to capture the groomsmen getting ready.
Much fun was had during a very relaxed preparations, and I’m sure the champagne toast contributed towards taking an edge off the nerves!
From St Johns, the wedding party left Worcester and headed to nearby Pershore and the beautiful Deer Park Hall. Set just outside the Cotswolds, Deer Park Hall is one of our favourite venues to film at. Set amidst a lush countryside backdrop, it makes capturing stunning wedding videography easy, and guests are even likely to see some of the deer that live in the nearby fields!
We always enjoy filming speeches and these certainly didn’t disappoint. Richy, the groom, had the impeccable timing of a standup comedian and his delivery had the guests in hysterics!
One of the many highlights of the reception at Deer Park Hall was the carousel that Sam & Richy had rented for the occasion. It was a lot of fun filming the guests going round-and-round on the classic fairground ride, and an early look at the footage shows we caught some great action shots!
We had a great time filming Sam & Richy’s wedding day and we hope they have a fantastic honeymoon and an amazing life together!
Here’s what Sam & Richy had to say about working with Shoot The Piano Player:
“We love it, it’s amazing. You guys are brilliant, we hardly knew you were there throughout the day but the amount you filmed was extremely impressive. We’ve had so many comments about the detail you captured. The music was just perfect. I feel like you got us and the essence of the wedding was reflected in the film. 2 weeks before my wedding I didn’t want a video…now I’m sure I’d of been devastated if we missed out on what you guys did. Thank you soooo much. Rich & Sam X”
