KATE & AARON | ST PANCRAS RENAISSANCE HOTEL | LONDON

I can’t seem to get trains out of my life (Julie). Growing up, my father was a model rail enthusiast, which meant lots of holidays near steam train rallies and rides on the rails of some refurbished carriages from yesteryear. I still get excited on behalf of my Dad when I see a train :)

Kate and Aaron seemed to like trains too – especially since they chose to have their wedding at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel; the platform just a stones throw away. I think the architecture was part of Aarons motivation for the venue; as well as the thought of marrying his good lady Kate in such auspicious surroundings.

So we filmed some trains, and some unscripted moments to make a beautiful film of Kate and Aarons wedding day. Mind the gap……

SANDRA & NABIL | WEDDING VIDEO AT ONE GREAT GEORGE STREET | LONDON

How many times in your life to you get to see people dancing inside a human sized snow globe??? Well look no further folks, because this wedding had just that.

Filled with elegance and stature, the the whole wedding and the venue spoke volumes about this couple. The location was One Great George Street in London, a refined location in the centre of the political hub; almost hidden away in the shadow of Westminster.  The couple were not flamboyant, but cultured and well suited to the sense of grandeur that this venue delivered.

HANNAH & CHRISTOPHER | WEDDING VIDEO AT WASING PARK | WEST BERKSHIRE

Image2

This is the story of Hannah & Christopher who got married at Wasing Park in West Berkshire.

Our meetings with our couples are very important; it’s the first step in our journey to creating a very personalised wedding film. Everyone who visits is almost always welcomed with Tea and cakes….. and a cheery nose wiggle from our house rabbit Ellie. He’s always the superstar – everyone loves a soft rabbit that performs on demand (showoff).

When we meet you, we don’t always want to know about your wedding day. We’d rather get chatting about you and your stories.

I remember our first meeting Hannah and Chris – we had got comfy with some tea and cake and started chatting about the things in life that were important to them – and we all just clicked. We couldn’t wait to film their day and work on the edit. I literally love it when an edit comes together in such a powerful way, that when I watch it back, I get all shivery and cold and just know everyone is going to seriously love it and have the same response as me.

It was at our second meeting that Hannah talked about her illness and how times had been tough in the past – but not something to be dwelt upon now – as it was all about their future and the wedding was just the beginning. Whilst we were chatting, Hannah also revealed that her mum had made her wedding dress for her and that it was going to be a very special moment for her when she put it on for the first time. If you fancy getting all shivery and cold, have a watch – and you will know what I mean :)

I suppose when time has moved on, and people in our lives have passed, we treasure the moments and memories that matter the most – and Minty Slippers always feels the most privileged - as we get to create those memories for you. We bloody love what we do – and we want to keep doing it for a very long time to come.

NATASHA & JAMES | MAY FAIR HOTEL | LONDON

We don’t work with templates. It’s hard to when each of our couples have a unique story to tell. For Natasha and James we had a treat of being able to film their orthodox greek ceremony. One thing we have noticed over the years is how similar wedding ceremonies are across the various different faiths and cultures. Rings are often the one constant, be they a ring of gold, flowers or ribbon. For Natasha and James they had the well known wedding bands but also a crown made of ribbon, placed upon their heads and then exchanged. Again, like a CofE or Catholic service another way to show the exchange of rings.

For a groom, the wearing of a timepiece is often an important part of the day. James’s dad made me chuckle as he had decided to loan James one of his own watches. He cleaned and polished the watch. Made the effort to find a special cloth and cleaner for the leather strap, handed it over to James to wear and all the time knowing that he and his family was about to present James with his own Cartier watch. I got the feeling that James was hoping to receive something but felt his dreams fading away as his dad’s elaborate coverup unfolded. In the end though, his dreams came true.

You may also notice that this piece feels a little more filmic than usual. This is down to our new MintySlippers secret sauce that we will be pouring over all our films going forward.
