Cooling Castle Wedding Video – Jolene & Sean

Cooling Castle Wedding Video – Shot on location at Cooling Castle, Kent
April 2019

I really enjoyed filming Jolene & Sean’s Cooling Castle Wedding Video. Theirs was a great day in a great venue. In fact, this was the second time this year that I’d filmed at Cooling Castle & it’s fast becoming one of my favourite venues to film at.

One of the best things about Cooling Castle is the Bridal prep room. Besides the fact you can view all of the guests arrive, it’s also a light & spacious room that let’s the girls get ready away from prying eyes. As such, I started the day with Jolene in this room, capturing some of the prep. Again, as I mention in my FAQ, I almost always start filming from the prep in the morning as it helps brides to feel at ease with the camera being around. As a consequence Jolene was relaxed & I sensed she was excited & prepared for the day ahead of her.

And it was not only a special day because it was her wedding day, but it was also her soon to be husband’s 30th birthday! As such, the day had an even stronger sense of celebration. This can be seen with the excellent Singing Waiters, a surprise from Jolene to Sean, who serenaded our Groom on his birthday!

Another reason why this day was so great for me was that I was delighted to be working alongside the brilliant Danielle Smith. A brilliant photographer who I have worked alongside a number of times. Danielle is a wonderful photographer & I loved working this Cooling Castle Wedding alongside her.

As a result I loved putting together this Cooling Castle Wedding Video, and I enjoyed my time with Jolene & Sean. I hope they & their families enjoy this film of their day.

A Little Bit About our Bride & Groom

How did you guys meet, tell me all? We met when I was 20 and Sean was 18. I worked with my friend Sarah in a takeaway part time while at Uni and Sean worked with her in Iceland while he was at college. she introduced on a night out and we became friends. Sean asked me out a couple of times and I said no but then I got drunk at his aunts 40th birthday party and found the courage to ask him out How did you get engaged, is there a cool story? Sean took me to Venice for my 30th birthday and then proposed to me. We are now getting married on Sean’s 30th birthday

What made you choose your wedding venue, did you look at many? We looked at a few but nothing compared to Cooling Castle Barn. It is just a stunning venue that we both fell in love with
