"I'll love you today, I love you tomorrow. I'll love in sickness, I'll love you in sorrow. I'll love you on days when I dont make it clear, I'll love you no matter the days of the year. I'll love you when maybe things dont go as planned, I'll love you by taking and squeezing your hand. I'll love you on days when I dont feel myself, I'll love you in ways that I love no one else. I'll love you tomorrow, I'll love you today, I love that our love has it's own special way. Today is the start of the rest of our lives, and you are the person I want by my side". Zara - Bride
A sunny morning in Hampshire at the couples newly bought house, Zara got ready with her parents and two best friends. Zara was so relaxed in her spotless home with her parents by her side, reminiscing stories about Zara’s childhood.
As wedding videographers, Ground Films arrived at Upwaltham Barns. We met Rich and his groomsmen who all had a chilled morning together. Upwaltham Barns with its gorgeous courtyard bursting with flowers and backdropped by the rolling hills of the south downs was thriving in the early September sun. As wedding videographers we believe that the setting of a wedding is so important and the surroundings at Upwaltham Barns are truly beautiful. You can see these stunning grounds within Zara and Rich’s wedding film.
Soon Zara and Rich’s friends arrived at Upwaltham Barns wedding venue all together in a coach. You could tell that they had already started mingling and celebrating which created such a lovely and excited atmosphere as they got seated for the ceremony.
Zara finished her bridal preparations at Upwaltham Barns, getting into her gorgeous satin dress that had the most beautiful hand embellished sweet heart bodice. Rich was calm and excited when waiting at the end of the aisle for Zara, looking dapper in his navy blue suit with pale pink accents. As West Sussex wedding videographers we captured Zara beaming as she walked towards Rich down the aisle.
After a precious ceremony in the beautiful barn with authentic features, with their friends and family and accompanied by two beautiful readings by Rich’s groomsman, the couple were showered with confetti as they started their married life together. Zara and Rich enjoyed some celebratory drinks as they started mingling with their friends and family. During this time we were able to capture some gorgeous couple shots, making the most of the stunning landscape and grounds of Upwaltham Barns.
After an incredible meal, the speeches were performed. From heart-warming words from both Zara and Richs dads to hilarious stories from Rich's best man, their speeches included all the emotions from laughter to tears. It was perfectly ended by a compilation of pictures of the couple throughout their relationship. At Ground Films we love using these memories recounted in the speeches to tell the story of the couple throughout their wedding film as you can see above.
The sun was setting as everyone piled outside and enjoyed the last of the warm summer evenings, with drinks in hand. Upwaltham Barns had set up a fire pit and had lots of cosy outside seating for everyone to enjoy as they mingled and relaxed after a filling meal.
Zara and Rich then kick started the evening celebrations with the cutting of the cake and their first dance, which we as wedding videographers love to capture, being traditional elements of a wedding! As soon as the first dance ended, the dance floor crowded with their friends and family who continued the night dancing to nostalgic tunes.
