Lisi & Joe's Wedding Film at Merchant Taylors Hall

Lisi and Joe got married on the 14th of May 2022 in London surrounded by their friends and family and accompanied by lots of incredible music.

Lisi got ready in their beautiful apartment in Clapham surrounded by her best friends from university and her lifelong friend, her Maid of Honour. The preparations were filled with lots of laughter including one of Lisi’s bridesmaids very unique laughter which was a true talking point. The candles were lit, the graze boxes were on full display and the bubbles had been poured. Ground Films captured this electric energy during the morning as well as Lisi getting ready into her stunning A-line lace dress. It had an incredible bodice with long sleeves that had carefully placed stunning lace appliques throughout. The lace cascaded down the dress, which had an impressive full skirt and was beautifully adorned by Lisi’s cathedral length veil that was perfectly in keeping with the stunning church that Lisi and Joe got married in.


Joe left their London apartment in the early morning to meet up with his groomsmen and get ready before heading to a local Wetherspoons (his beloved pub choice) to enjoy some drinks to calm those pre-ceremony nerves. Soon everyone made their way to the incredible St Etheldredas Church where stunning pink florals had perfectly lined the aisle and drew your eye to the impressive stained-glass window that stood proudly at the top of the aisle. Wedding Videographers, Ground Films captured all these beautiful details which can be seen throughout Lisi and Joes wedding film above. During the ceremony conducted by a family friend, some of Lisi and Joes friends performed beautiful readings wishing the couple a lifetime of happiness as they embark on their next adventure. After a beautiful ceremony the couple and their guests made their way to The Merchants Taylors Hall for the wedding reception.


West Sussex wedding videographers turned up to the impressive and grand venue which had an incredible staircase, a tranquil courtyard that provided a suntrap and a place of calm in the hustle and bustle of the city, and the most incredible dining room/hall which had stunning architecture. Ground Films captured the impressive details of the venue as well as the stunning decoration that Lisi had meticulously planned and created including the name places that you can hear all about within their wedding film. The place looked truly incredible.


Lisi and Joe enjoyed spending time with their friends and family in the stunning courtyard enjoying drinks whilst a boys choir performed as a flashmob which included all the classic songs as well as hits from the Lion King – getting everyone to participate and sing along. Everyone was enthralled by the performance, and it was the best entertainment for the drink’s reception. Lisi then went to get changed into her traditional deep red dress ready for the evening.


After an incredible dinner the couple enjoyed speeches by Joe himself, his best man who perfectly told the couples story and Lisi’s Maid of Honour who shared the stories of Lisi’s childhood. The speeches were perfectly balanced, with laughter, tears and were plentiful of wise words.


After a brief moment for fresh air and to top up those glasses with gin, the wedding party made their way back into the impressive hall for Joe and Lisi’s first dance. The atmosphere was incredible, as you can see from Lisi and Joes wedding film above, as everyone was up on their feet and merrily dancing, even some lifts were performed. Ground Films left as the couple continued to dance the night away and make more incredible memories together and with their friends and family.


Thank you, Joe, and Lisi for a beautiful day and we wanted to say a big thank you to all the suppliers involved:
