Orchardleigh Estate Wedding Video – Shot on location at The Orchardleigh Estate, Frome, Somerset
I absolutely loved putting together this Orchardleigh Estate Wedding Video for Leanne and Michael. This was a wonderful wedding and an incredible experience for me.
This was my first time filming in Somerset, in fact this was, apart from the destination weddings I’ve shot, the furthest I’ve travelled in the UK for a Wedding video. Whilst I enjoy filming close to home, the adventure of travelling across the country is thrilling. New people, new part of the World, new venue – an exciting experience all around.
And of course I got to hang out with Leanne and Michael’s brilliant families and friends! This was a day of colour and of fun and laughter and I had a great time with them all.
There were many elements of Leanne and Michael’s day that I tried to feature in the Orchardleigh Estate Wedding Video. From the bridal prep in the morning, which was vibrant and exciting, to Michael’s Stolisma – the traditional ceremony where the groom is prepared in front of his guests ahead of the Wedding.
For the wedding itself we travelled into Bath for two traditional services – one Catholic and one Greek before heading back to the Orchardleigh Estate for the reception.
From here, both myself and photographer Andrew Brannan ran about getting some shots before we headed inside for some brilliant speeches. For those who thought Leanne’s Dad was a quiet wall flower, they were quickly disproved by a brilliantly funny speech. He totally owned the room setting it up perfectly for Michael’s speech.
The evening affair was vibrant with some traditional greek dancing and a busy dance floor all night.
Every aspect of this wedding was wonderful to experience and film and I’m pleased the day went so well for Leanne and Michael. I was delighted to spend time with my good friend Andrew Brannan once again and it was great to work alongside Nigel at Ever After Films who second shot for me. Not only a great videographer but also excellent company!
As a result, I loved putting together this Orchardleigh Estate Wedding Video, and I enjoyed my time with Leanne and Michael. I hope they & their families enjoy this film of their day.
