This is the first entry into our 'Work & Testimony' section of our website. Please disregard the date noted to the left below the title stating '2017' as this is our new Blog Page! The main aim of these entries is to provide a short recap and blog of our featured weddings, to hear some words from our couples and to exhibit some beautiful video alongside some fun information about the big day. We were lucky enough to debut our filming here at Midgley Wedding Cinematography with an amazing couple: Martin and Bryony. We really want to take a moment to thank them, they have really helped shape the conception of this venture and we will always remember them for their continued support, warmth and generosity.
We started the day with preparations at Quebecs Hotel & Apartments in Leeds City Centre, a beautiful ceremony in Morley Town Hall - shortly followed by a momentous Reception at Thwaites Water Mill in Leeds. The whole day was brilliantly quirky and as the sun beamed down, everyone had an amazing time! We feel honoured to be premiering Midgley Wedding Cinematography with such a unique wedding, which we will remember throughout our careers. The wedding had the whole package and more: from brass bands, human pyramids, giant tee-pees to vintage buses!
We could really go on all day about how warm and hospitable Martin and Bryony were with us, and for making capturing the day such a joy (such naturals in front of a camera!), however, we're not the kind of guys who like to blow their own trumpet - so we're going to let the happy couple do it for us! Here are a few words from Martin and Bryony.
"Thank you both so much for the absolutely amazing video that you made of our wedding day – we could not be more pleased it with, it truly is brilliant ... When we saw the video you created for us, we could not have been more pleased or more relieved that you had been there with us – to have the opportunity to see things we missed on the day, to relive all the bits which went by so fast they felt like a blur, and to have a lasting memory of all of our friends and family on the most special day of our lives, is absolutely priceless to us. And the way you have edited it together in such a beautiful way means that every time we watch it, we are immediately taken back to feeling all the emotions we had on the day.
You were both an absolutely pleasure to work with too ... as soon as we met you we felt instantly comfortable; neither of us are fond of the limelight, but you put us completely at ease and thank you for being so super accommodating and going out of your way to blend into the day. We cannot wait to share the finished product with our friends and family, who we are sure will love it as much as we do. All that is left for us to say is thank you again – we are eternally grateful, and we will not hesitate recommend you to friends and family in the future!
Martin & Bryony, Mr and Mrs Bamford.
Nawww, thanks guys! Bryony and Martin even sent us a lovely thank you card, a very kind gift and this rather cool memento of the big day - a huge newspaper with all the beautiful images taken on the day! Such a cool idea and keepsake for family and friends (I think i'll steal this idea for my own wedding!).
All photographs on this page were taken by the very kind and brilliant Jon Dennis of S6 Photography, you can find his website here!
