A Wedding Video Trailer at Ufton Court | Reading | West Sussex Videographers

Toni & Jack married on the 19th April 2019 at the beautiful Ufton Court Wedding venue in Reading Surrey.

Tell us about where and when you first both first met and What were your first impressions of each other when you first met?

We first met at the Jolly Sailor pub in South Norwood after a Crystal Palace match. First impressions were hazy - Palace had sadly lost :(

Tell us about who proposed to who and where did it happen?

Jack proposed to me by getting down on one knee on the beach in Mauritius - it was the most romantic setting and a great start to our 2 week holiday!

Give us three words each to describe each other and what they mean to you?

Bride (by Jack):

Hilarious - she’s so random, you never know what she’ll come out with

Beautiful - her smile and her laugh are infectious

Driven - her passion keeps me wanting to be a better version of myself


Passionate - Jack never does anything half hearted, it’s 100% or nothing, very YOLO

Hilarious - he makes me laugh every single day without fail

Swaggalicious - his style, his maneurisms and everything he does are always just so cool

How did you find and choose your wedding venues Ufton Court, Reading, Surrey.

We looked for no corkage venues around London and stumbled across Ufton Court! Finding out the guys are part of the Education trust and do so much for the community sold it to us as the right venue for our big day

Tell us about your wedding dress; the designer, how long it took you to find the one?

The designer is Ukrainian, as is my mum, so i really wanted to get a dress by them as a nod to mum. They’re only stocked in one store in the whole of the UK which just happened to be 10 minutes from where we live! I just knew it was meant to be.

I tried on 7 dresses before my mum pulled my dress out of the rack and I just knew it was the one!

Tell us about what the Groomsmen wore?

The groom and the ushers all wore Marks & Spencer suits - we thought about getting Jack a more bespoke suit but he wanted them all the match.

they should have all had matching coral bow ties too but Jack forgot them at home!! My lovely bridesmaid Laura saved the day by rushing out to Reading the get last minute replacements - she’s got great taste because they all looked so dapper!

Was there any surprises? Tell us more..

The weather! We couldn’t have asked for a better weekend - especially considering how rainy every weekend since has been!

Luckily, we had no bad surprises, which made the day just perfect!

Did you have any readings and if so, why did you pick them?

Our reading we picked because we felt it was the most true to us - it talks about forever and about happiness and that’s how we have both always seen marriage. A happily ever after!

Tell us about the finishing touches like favours, sweet carts etc & name any suppliers & companies that helped make your Surrey wedding Video come true:

Photographer - Matt Lee, who was absolutely amazing! We picked Matt because of his amazing candid style, and having spoken to him a few times on the phone we just got on so well! He’s done an absolutely amazing job capturing the day too:

Make-up Artist: Lo Moorcroft - Jack’s sister and international MUA. She’s absolutely amazing and I loved having her share in the getting ready fun in the morning!

Hair Artist: my amazing, sassy friend Sammy - she’s one of my closest friends and an absolute trooper for doing 8 hair styles in 5 hours!

DJ - Dave from Unique Soundz. We asked him to get through the eras and keep everyone on their feet and he delivered!

Toastmaster - Malcolm (bride’s brother in law) - an absolute natural on a mic, and a very special member of our family, we couldn’t think of anyone better to introduce us as husband and wife

Florist - the Flower Stalk - they were highly recommended by the venue and did an absolutely amazing job! The flowers absolutely blew us away - they did exactly what we asked for and brought my vision to life!

Transport - taxis, with the bride’s minivan turning into the rave bus on the way to the venue! A sure way to get rid of those pre-aisle jitters :)

Wedding Cake - by Sugared Saffron in London. We loved the design and the creme caramel and vanilla sponge were just the perfect flavours!

Rings - jacks ring was his Dad’s, so a lovely wedding present from him to Jack. My wedding band is from Swag and is a full eternity (the blingier the better I say)!

What was your favourite part of your Surrey wedding day at Ufton Court, Reading?

For us both, when I walked down the aisle - it was so emotional (in the happiest way!) and it was so great to be able to share that with our friends and family!!

The speeches also didn’t disappoint, and we both felt incredibly loved!

Was there any funny moments that you will always remember?

When we were in the Mansion house for photos before the meal, we had a very romantic his and hers toilet trip - weeing side my side will always be something we remember

Why did you choose us, Surrey Wedding Videographers to film your wedding and what did you think of your experience being filmed?

We looked at quite a few videographers, but you stood out because your trailers and videos on your website were just so beautiful and really told a story. We didn’t just want someone to film the day and send us the footage, we wanted someone to really be able to capture the happiest day of our lives, and if the trailer is anything to go by, you guys did an incredible job!

We loved having you guys, we both felt so comfortable and didn’t notice you doing your thing. All our guests said how lovely you all were and we can’t wait to see the rest of the film!
