The first day Jon & Amy met, Jon gazed his big blue eyes over to his now blushing bride and said ‘hello Aim’, and from there Amy knew he was the one for her.
“Jon is my best friend, he's funny, and the most loving and caring person I know. My favourite thing about him has to be his dance moves, he's got Rhythm like no other”.
“Amy to me is the most beautiful person inside and out, she's straight talking and doesn't care if people like her or not, she is who she is. She has me laughing all day everyday, she cackles all the time, she hates it but I love her for it”
Jon proposed on a romantic night snuggled in their cosy bedroom after he had taken Amy to to buy some earrings at the jewellery quarter in Birmingham. He brought her a fantastic vintage ring from Marlows Diamonds and her surprised her by proposing that night. How could she not say yes!
Jon & Amy married on the 24thMarch 2018 at the stunning Warwick House Wedding Venue in Warwick. The exclusive use venue captured the hearts of the newlyweds by it’s magazine worthy white frontage and the intimacy of the layout which allowed all their guests to be truly comfortable throughout the day.
As wedding videographers, we always love to play guess the dress before we arrive in the morning and Amy’s dress did not disappoint, like Amy’s personality, bubbly, fun and a little daring, the Stunning Mori Lee Dress was the perfect fit to show off her flare. The pretty embellished backless wonder from TDR in Halesowen, stood out from the 30 odd dresses Amy tried on before she picked the one, and thank goodness, as she looked amazing and Jon’s reaction said it all, with her tear jerking entrance to the ceremony.
The day was filled with many happy tears especially from our lovely Groom, Jon. In our cinematic wedding films, we always like to show a little emotion to recreate the magic of the day and there was plenty of tears when the beautiful Ruby, one of Amy & Johns twelve year old twins, bravely read a reading in the ceremony. You could see such proudness in her parent’s eyes and we could tell this was going to be one of those moments the couple will never forget.
“We are really very lucky In so many ways One bit of luck is being able To share with you this day. The memories will be so special They will stay with us for life. The day that our lucky Dad Took our lovely Mom to be his Wife. So we wish for you a lifetime Of lots of love and laughter For your very own fairy tale And your own Happy ever after”
A favourite part of the day for me is filming all the lovely gifts the couples get each other and I just love a personalisation! Amy brought Jon a beautiful emblazoned Pocket watch, engraved with “I choose you every time, always and forever", whilst Jon surprised his wife to be with her favourite Dior perfume and a bracelet and necklace to wear on the day. The personalisation didn’t stop there either, they had wooden name places, sprayed in gold for their tables and for the guests to keep and next to these were tiny bottles of millions, one filled with lots of blue millions and just one pink one, saying ‘her one in a million’ and the other filled with pink millions with one tiny blue one, saying ‘his one in a million’, such a sweet idea! In the evening the room was alive with chatter and dancing and singing, probably from all the lovely sweets, on the sweet cart, hired of a friend of theirs, Jade Langley and the impressive tower of Krispie Kreme Doughnuts the couples favourite naughty treat.
The couple chose us to capture their wedding video as they felt the wedding videos captured the love, always lovely to hear and so nice where is so much love to film.
“We chose you because, your videos capture the love. They are so beautiful and just pieced together perfectly. To be honest I didn't know i was being filmed I didn't feel under pressure at all, you were both so warm and friendly, it just felt like you were supposed to be there”
Amy said that if you’re thinking of having a videographer..
“I would 100% say DO IT!! But make sure they choose the right people, you want your video to show everyone exactly how you felt on the day, and grounds films captures every little detail. If I did it all again tomorrow we would choose you over and over again.”
