Arundel Cathedral Wedding Video | West Sussex Videographers

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

Joe and I first met on Tinder :), we love our tech so I suppose this is quite appropriate. So we kind of knew each other before we met for the first time. We had messaged a lot and I'd made Joe call me on the phone so I could tell what he sounded like (and to make sure I wasn't being cat-fished) he had a lovely deep voice and he was so polite so we arranged to meet up. We went for fish and chips and I was smitten. 

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

Joe proposed to me on Valentines weekend (10th Feb 2018) at Harry Potter studios. He managed to get tickets to the pretty exclusive Valentines Dinner there. I had no idea, he took me for a drive (I was just getting over a chest infection so wasn't questioning anything) and we ended up at a very posh hotel in Watford (The Grove) and he told me that he wanted to go out for a walk and do some of his photography, but it was raining so we went into the very posh hotel and had a drink. He pretended to go to the toilet but was actually checking us in to a room and then revealed that he had already packed the car for us to have a weekend away. Needless to say, it was an evening I will never forget, properly magical. 

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

Bride: Therese is beautiful, smart and funny.

Groom: Joe is kind, handsome and wonderful. 

How did you find and choose your wedding venue, Long Furlong, West Sussex?

We drive past Long Furlong every time we go to visit Therese's mum and dad, it was the first venue we went to see (we saw 9 others afterwards). We wanted somewhere that would work even if it was raining and also felt exclusive and just for our guests. 

Tell us about your wedding dress featured in your West Sussex Wedding Video; the designer, how long it took you to find the one? I went to about 5 or 6 shops. My mum actually picked this dress out first but I wasn't overly impressed but the lady in the store brought it over as an option that she thought I might like. I thought about it for a little while and when I couldn't stop thinking about it and kept trying to compare other dresses to it, that's when I thought, this might be it. 

Tell us about what the Groomsmen wore featured in your West Sussex Wedding Video?

We hired suits from Moss Bros. we wanted something special and formal looking like something you would see at a Royal Wedding as we were getting married at Arundel Cathedral that is why we chose tails and of course the top hats!

Was there any surprises featured in your West Sussex Wedding Video? Tell us more.. Bad surprises with the suits... we'll never recommend anyone to Moss Bross unless they fancy adding some unnecessary stress to their lives. 

Did you have any readings and if so, why did you pick them? My brother read a lovely reading about Love, and the gospel reading was about Jesus turning water into wine at a wedding. 

Tell us about the finishing touches like favours, sweet carts etc & name any suppliers & companies that helped make your perfect  wedding day at Arundel Cathedral & Long Furlong Wedding Venue, West Sussex, come true:

Photographer Love Heart Photography

Make-up Artist Danielle- friend recommended

Hair Artist As above

DJ Adur Disco- Gareth- DJ'd my 25th birthday party. We enjoy him because he plays what we ask for.



Flourist Flowers 4. Such nice people. My Mum set this all up and they looked and smelt amazing. Transport Imperial cars. Lush service. The bus guy was a bit mental but it helped all the guests bond on the bus over a mutual annoyance at him. Also his bus looked good in the pictures.

What was your favourite part of your wedding day at Long Furlong Barns, West Sussex?

All of it. It's difficult to break it down. I loved meeting Joe at the top of the aisle, I was so happy to see him again, I don't like being away from him, I was also delighted he was wearing trousers that looked like they fitted and he was just beaming at me. 

Was there any funny moments that you will always remember featured in your West Sussex Wedding Video? The speeches, my sister was brilliant, me and Joe being slightly drunk in the hay fields and you guys luring us with our alcohol to walk certain ways so you could get good shots with the light. 

Why did you choose us, West Sussex Videographers, Ground Films to film your wedding and what did you think of your experience being filmed?

We knew we wanted the photographer and the videographer to get on, so we asked Will who he had enjoyed working with, he said you guys as you would find your own angles rather than relying on him and he showed us some of your videos, I cried and wanted you straight away. 

Any advice for future wedding couples thinking about having their special day filmed by West Sussex Videographers, Ground Films ?

Just that they should really. It's such a brilliant way to look back on the day. Me and my siblings watch our parents wedding video all the time, it's like a time capsule. We also get to see people who aren't with us anymore and it's just so lovely to see such a perfect day where they were all together celebrating love. Having a video wasn't an option for us, it was, along with the photographer, the things we knew we had to have. Everything else was a 'nice to have'.
