Lion Inn Wedding Video – Emma and Matt

Lion Inn Wedding Video – Shot on location at The Lion Inn, Boreham, Essex
August 2019

I’m delighted to present this Lion Inn Wedding Video. Emma and Matt had a brilliant day and I was honoured to be on hand to capture it for them. I loved this wedding and I thoroughly enjoyed my day with Emma and Matt and I hope they, along with their family and friends enjoy this Lion Inn Wedding Video.

I love shooting weddings at The Lion. The venue is so thoughtfully put together and looks so stunning. The Art Deco style makes this venue stand out amongst the range of barn venues in the area. What makes the venue so interesting for me is the amount of glass and reflections on offer and I had a lot of fun finding some interesting angles and reflections during Emma and Matt’s day.

What was also interesting was that the brilliant Photographer I was working alongside – my good friend Tracy Morter– was only booked for half a day. I had the unique experience of being on my own from the speeches onwards. Usually I’m working alongside a photographer all day – but this was a different experience and one I really enjoyed. You should take a look at Tracy’s images of the day though – they are, as always, stunning.

You should also keep a look out for the beautiful floral displays on offer during Emma and Matt’s wedding – all created and looked after by Emma herself!

How did you guys meet, tell me all?

Ha! Despite us both having worked for Essex Police for some time (Emma 12 years, Matt 18 years), we didn’t actually meet through work, but mutual friends – (who aren’t Police Officers, but knew us both through other friends). We were given telephone numbers and eventually met up for a ‘blind date’ – the rest as they say, is history!

How did you get engaged, is there a cool story?

Matt took me back to our ‘first date’ pub (The white Hart at Margaretting) and proposed at the table, two years to the day after we first met.

What made you choose your wedding venue, did you look at many?

We both wanted somewhere where none of our friends have got married, The Lion was the one and only venue we went to view. We both loved it, the relaxed feel it had and the spectacular Art Deco style bar!

What is your first song and why?

Champagne Kisses by Jessie Ware. It’s a song that reminds us of not long after we first met.

Where did you find out about me?

I googled our venue and saw a wedding video of yours from The Lion pop up. That led me to clicking on your website and then watching loads of your films! Love love love!
