Homemade Bride Kate is sharing her gorgeous wedding with us this week, on Friday we’ll be showing you the beautiful wedding photos but today is all about the videos – plural! Kate & Sean are not only sharing their highlights video with us but also one of the funniest things I’ve seen – their marryoke video! To find out what this is keep reading! Huge thanks to Apricot Tree Weddings who filmed them.
Sean and I are very lucky to have tremendously talented friends. So when Sean’s best friends offered to do our wedding video I was so excited. Not only do I know that they are amazing at what they do but I knew I would feel comfortable with having them there on the day. It’s a very strange feeling trying to imagine how stressed you will be on the day and coming from a hair and make up background I have known many occasions where the bride is very self conscious of the camera. I was actually excited about spending the morning with our closest friends even if they did arrive with two cameras. Casey even helped me put my eyelashes on before I started to panic that things weren’t going to plan.
There is a big debate when you are planning about weather or not you have a videographer or not. My husband wasn’t sure it was something that he wanted so we decided to ask some of the other Cwtch girls their opinion. The thing that swayed him was when is was the men that said it was the one thing that were so glad that they had done. Then there was the other one who had said how disappointed they were not having one. He was sold!
This is where I get to say thank you to our amazing friends Sean and Casey at Apricot Tree.When Sean and I saw it for the first time we were in awe. You captured the day perfectly but not just documented it you got the feeling of the day! I’m so thankful that you are the perfectionist that you are!
Our amazing videographers also offered us the option to have a Marryoke. Now for those who have no clue what that is, it is when your guests mouth the words and they very cleverly edit the real song over it. Watching this back was the funniest thing. It was great to see your friends and family letting loose and enjoying the day. I love feeling like I was in my very own music video!
Nestling at the foothills of an iron-age fort, Rosedew Farm is a working farm in Llantwit Major which comprises of The Great Barn Function Hall, which is perfect for a wedding, and five self catering cottages so that you and your nearest and dearest can stay on site – perfect! I think you’ll agree it is beautiful too.
Jenna & Jason had a fabulous vintage themed wedding which was captured beautifully by Leanne. We hope you enjoy watching it!
We have a beautiful wedding highlights video to share with you today which was sent to us by Craig at Cherished Memories Wedding Films. Samantha & Greig got married on the 28th of June this year at Llanrhidian Church followed by a reception at Oldwalls, Gower. Groom Greig made lots of vintage fair games to keep the guests entertained!

I’m a huge believer in the importance of using professional wedding suppliers for your wedding. I’m not just saying that because I’m a photographer. Think about it, your wedding day is one of the most significant days in your life. The day you make that life long commitment to each other. It deserves to be documented well. If its not, how are you going to remember it? Some memories do fade over time.
We all know that budgets play a major role in deciding which suppliers to book. I hope you take comfort in knowing that most of the suppliers we feature on this blog, I’ve either personally worked alongside at weddings, are genuinely lovely people to know or offer something unique that I really want you all to know about. Yes, some may be over your budget but re-jigging that spreadsheet and investing in the right suppliers FOR YOU is something you will never regret.
Today I’m sharing a wedding film by one of my favourite local film makers, Aurora. I don’t need to tell you how good he is, the proof is in the pudding. I especially love (groom) Simon’s expression as his bride Lydia walks down the aisle…Wow…Such a beautiful moment captured.
We’re thrilled to be featuring more on this wedding this week. Bride Lydia has recently set up her own business Belle Journée. Hiring out all the gorgeous decor items featured in her wedding. She has also become one of our blog sponsors (take a look… on the right side side of the blog!) And on Friday we are featuring her beautiful wedding photographs by Jake Moreley.
