“Be consistent, yet spontaneous. Be honest and thoughtful to each other. Be kind and considerate. Be loving and gentle. If you are down let the other pup be the clown”
Lucy and James got married at the stunning Notley Abbey in Buckinghamshire on the 6th of May 2022 after 12 years of laughter, adventures to Dubai, New York and Italy to name a few, and endless incredible memories together.
As the venue was set up for the day’s proceedings, Lucy got ready with her best friends, sister and mum in the beautiful historic house, all captured by Ground Films. Everyone was calm and collected as they got ready for the day ahead… and then James’s gift was opened. James had had a song written for Lucy - it was the most gorgeous personal gift which left everyone in tears during the morning’s preparations.
West Sussex wedding videographers, Ground Films captured Lucy’s hair being crafted into a timeless low bun, with curls framing her face, and her effortless elegant makeup being applied. She wore the most insane form fitting dress, with a stunning low back, embellished with beautiful appliques. Her hair being in a soft updo made sure that Lucy’s insane backless dress was on full show!
Wedding videographers, Ground Films captured Lucy walk down the aisle arm in arm with her stunning and proud mum towards her soon to be husband. The ceremony looked beautiful with a spectacular floral display framing Lucy and James at the top of the aisle. You can see throughout their wedding film how excited the pair were to get married, with beaming smiles throughout. Lucy’s mum wrote a personal reading to her daughter and soon to be son-in-law, full of advice, wisdom and a whole lot of love – of which you can hear in Lucy and James wedding film above.
Once the legal proceedings had finished it was now time for the couple to enjoy some time Pimm’s in the sun with their friends and family. Notley Abbey sheltered by trees became the most peaceful sun trap for the drink’s reception, accompanied by Lucy and James’s friend who sang throughout. Just before dinner Ground Films were able to capture Lucy and James in the stunning surroundings at Notley Abbey before the couple went in for the awaited speeches.
James and his best man ticked every emotion box when it came to speeches, from laughter to tears! They performed heartfelt speeches discussing the memorable story of how Lucy and James started talking on Facebook to eventually meeting and trying to play it cool, to how James wasn’t a fan of behaving in school but has now established an incredible career in the police, all of which you can hear about during their wedding film. Ground Films love to capture these stories that shape and lead a couple to this very day, their wedding day.
After a lovely dinner and some fresh air everyone was eager to get on that dance floor to boogie the night away. James and Lucy kick started the dancing with their intimate and loving first dance, followed by some epic throwback tunes to get everyone up on their feet.
Award winning wedding videographers, Ground Films finished the evening by capturing an incredible night shot with the couple at the front of the impressive Notley Abbey before the pair went back in to make more incredible memories together on the dance floor.
