DIY Wedding Bunting

Over the past two years I’ve noticed buntings have become increasingly popular, especially with marquee and barn venue weddings. So this week I’ve added a very simple DIY project that I found by Something Turquiose

Sasha & Richard’s Wedding Video at Wroxall Abbey

Wedding Video feedback by Sasha and Richard

Q As a newly married couple, what would be the best advice you would give to a couple just starting out on their wedding planning journey?

Budget for a videographer. There was so much that happened during the day that we had forgotten about. Magical moments captured forever.

Q What is the best memory you have from your wedding day?

The emotion of the vows we took.

Q Why did you decide you wanted a video recording of your wedding day?

Having seen a friends video it was a shock to see how different wedding videos are to what I remember of them years ago. We hadn’t budgeted for one from the start but felt it was too important to miss having seen my friends so cut a few things here and there to be able to sort it out.

Q. What memories did the video provide which your photographs didn’t capture?

We loved watching the speeches and bits of the day that happened without our presence. Priceless footage that cannot be replicated by photos!

Q. Why did you choose The Finishing Touch?

A friends recommendation after watching her video.

Q. Would you recommend Finishing Touch?

Very much so. Have done already.

Q. How would you some up your experience of The Finishing Touch?

Perfect, non obtrusive capturing everything.

DIY Brooch Bouquets

A while ago we  photographed a wedding of Kay and David, and spotted something unusual. The Bouquet weren’t flowers, infact they were made of jewellery.

Since then I’ve discovered this is called a’ Brooch Bouquet’ and is growing in popularity with the DIYers as anyone can make it, with enough broaches and time on their hands. They look quite effective and be made personal to the bride, with jewelry passed on from parents and friends. I’ve also noticed that brooches are now  being added to flower bouquets as well, as can be seen In Jay and Stuarts wedding

Anyway this following DIY Brooch was created by Beth Blinebury Designs and you can see the full article here

Silhouette Artist

Back in September last year we filmed a very creative Silhouette Artists, Sarah Goddard, at work in the Marquee of New Hall Hotel, creating a Silhouette Card for Laura and Lee –  I was very  impressed. Everyone loved her artistic skills and her genuine friendliness.

Kerry & Stuart’s Wedding Video at Redhouse Barn

Q As a newly married couple, what would be the best advice you would give to a couple just starting out on their wedding planning journey?

To meet with a variety of vendors, visit several venues and don’t make quick decisions! Also to feel comfortable with your photographer/ video person! That was a big thing for me!

Q What is the best memory you have from your wedding day?

Everything!! It’s hard to choose! Photos and our video have created amazing memories. Everything about the day from the venue, food and all our family and friends being there to share it with us. But the ceremony is what the day is all about!

Q Why did you decide you wanted a video recording of your wedding day?

We had seen our friends videos and decided we wanted one to be able to look back on. We are so glad we did, the day goes so fast you miss things that the video picks up that you didn’t see on the day!

Q. What memories did the video provide which your photographs didn’t capture?

Conversations between guest and laughter was captured. Our first dance! Even though we had photos, the video caught the whole thing. And saying the vows. Photos were really important to us, but the video just picked up stuff that photos just don’t show.

Q. Why did you choose The Finishing Touch?

We were recommended by our friends? And we liked your work and was comfortable with you both!

Q. Would you recommend Finishing Touch?

Definitely!!

Q. How would you some up your experience of The Finishing Touch?

We are so pleased with what you created! You were both great, really friendly and helpful, and we didn’t even know you we around during some of the filming!! Thank you so much:-)
