Louise & Aaron - Dodford Manor Wedding



“May you always have love, and may you always find it in loving one another”

They say at university you meet your friends for life, but Louise and Aaron also met their life partners. As Ground Films we set ourselves the task of finding out as much as we can about each couple we film as it means we can make their wedding films even more personal and special, so here is a spinet of what we know about Louise and Aaron: Both Louise and Aaron went to Plymouth University where they trained to be teachers, Aaron swooped in on a night out just after Louise had become single – we hear that he was ready and waiting for her for a long time before.

Well Aaron definitely did the right thing by waiting around because this couple have been together ever since. After lots of adventures together all over the world, Aaron proposed on the Amalfi Coast during the Festival of Light, he had prepared a beautiful and truly special day with a trip out on a boat and lavish dinner and had planned to propose when they got back to their apartment, although on the way back they realised it was the Festival of Light and the unknowing Louise wanted to watch so they grabbed the champagne which was intended for after the proposal and watched the festival on the street, when they finally got home he proposed. Although Aarons plans that day had changed the couple had the most insane day with epic scenery and their engagement was the icing on the cake.

As West Sussex Wedding Videographers we get to capture the bridal preparations during the morning, in this time we were able to get to know Louise better and get excited with her as she prepares for the best day of her life. Her bridesmaids being her friends from uni, teaching and childhood reminisced about Louise throughout the years and put her at ease with their laughs and teary reactions to seeing her ready for her big day. Louise’s brother even came to surprise her with a beautiful bracelet, which used to belong to Louise’s mother. Although Louise’s mum couldn’t be there to celebrate with her beautiful daughter, she was definitely in everyone’s thoughts throughout the day, and it was a blessing to hear these gorgeous sentiments about Louise and her mother having the same caring characteristics throughout the stunning day.

Louise and Aaron got married at the beautiful Dodford Manor, surrounded by countryside, the fields were the perfect backdrop this stunning couple’s wedding day. The sun was blazing as the couple tied the knot in the intimate barn, full of charm and character. The setting was idyllic and allowed us (Ground Films) to get stunning shots of the couple.

Louise walked down the aisle in a beautifully head to toe embellished a line dress that complimented her soon to be hubby’s black-tie outfit – quite rightly they were both the main attraction of the day. As West Sussex Wedding Videographers we captured this first look moment in their wedding film. Their love is undeniable when hearing the gorgeous comments that their friends and family made about them throughout the day. As Award Winning Videographers we love hearing these comments when getting guests to leave messages for the couple on video – and by the sounds of it, Louise and Aaron are a great, fun-loving, entertaining couple to be around. We are very grateful to have been a part of their special day and celebrate their love with them.

Thanks to all the suppliers at Dodford Manor
