Speaking to friends who are married several of them regretted not having a video as the day went so fast and they felt they missed a lot.
So we want to use the video to see the day ourselves and also to share with some elderly relatives who cannot attend and as a keepsake that we plan to watch on anniversaries.
We loved the feel of your videos and in particular the way they told a story with the speeches overlaid over a montage of the day.
You guys? ...What do you do?..How do you spend your days?..What's important in life?
We both work in data and technology and met at work. But work isn't our passion, our shared passions which hopefully shine through on the day include:
- Food - we're big foodies and Chloe has an amazing eye for detail on how she presents food.
- Drink - fine food calls for fine drink and we've personally chosen the wines for the day from vineyards that we have visited and also sourced the beers from craft specialists
- Travel - travel is the theme for the wedding with every table being a country we have been to together and lots of other nods to travel through the day
- Outdoors - we're slowly becoming keen gardeners and love being outside
The proposal? ...Tell us everything!
Clive proposed in Vietnam (Chloe's country of birth) after having asked for her father permission.
He proposed at sunset after the two of us hiked up a hillside in remote countryside and with the excuse of having set up the camera for a selfie (the camera was actually set to take a photo every 2 seconds) he caught the proposal on camera.
The Venue/s? ... Why this place above anywhere else?
It was really important for us to find a venue with character, that could fit us to dinner without a marquee and could host us all day (for both ceremonies). Stanbrook Abbey in Worcester ticked the boxes and more.
We love the details in life and there are plenty at the venue famously including little mice carved into the woodwork (a trademark of the original carpenter that is now collectable). The are plenty of other details and features to add intrigue and we're bringing more of our own with the decor we have made for the day.
What experience do you want to give to your guests?
Fun. Life should be about having fun and we hope they enjoy the day with us and all the details that have gone into it from the wine we selected to the aeroplane cards, handmade signs and live band.
