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.
