Thanks to all of you who turned up to meet us at the Fanhams Hall wedding fayre and to all the exhibitors who took part in this very special marryoke. Having got married there myself its always a pleasure to go back and film in the magnificent house and gardens.
We don’t always show off our ‘Best Bits’ highlights in colour, sometimes a classic black and white look will do the job better. Set to Ellie Goulding’s cover of the Elton John classic ‘Your Song’ this is their whole day summed up in three and a bit gorgeous minutes.
When Kirsten + Loren approached me and mentioned that they wanted to do Bohemian Rhapsody as their marryoke, my first thoughts were that they had spent too long in the sun of their adopted homeland, Australia. Once I had been assured that YES they really did want to do it, my thoughts quickly turned to HOW I was going to film it, i mean seriously, Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody, the song is six minutes long.
Undaunted and armed with a Brian May wig and more inflatable guitars than I knew what to do with I set about piecing the mammoth track together. After the first few takes I knew it was going to be a classic and my fears were put to rest.
So here it is, in its full length glory, my first (and last) Bohemian Rhapsody Marryoke.
I love it when an outdoor wedding doesn’t get rained off. Up until half an hour before the ceremony Stacey and Ryan’s alternative indoor option had been prepped for the wedding as heavy rain was forecast. When the Westmill Farm staff gave the thumbs up the staff went into a hive of activity, busily readying the wonderful outdoor pagoda and moving all of the guest chairs.
Befitting the Twilight theme, we’ve used Christina Perri’s ‘A Thousand Years’ to play out their wedding highlights or ‘Best Bits as we like to call them.
