So the important part of a wedding day is obviously the ceremony but a close second is the party in the evening. After a fab wedding ceremony at St Mary's in Lee-On-The-Solent followed by some crazy spontaneous "Bridesmaids" style dancing on the tables throughout the wedding breakfast the groom uttered the words "...lets get Barbered" the party started! This comment played homage to his fantastic best man Nick Barber referring to his drinking ability and his antics on the stag do where he was AWOL for a while. A hilarious fictional poster and facebook campaign was started to track him down, much to his embarrassment!
So not to let the groom or best man down everyone knew how to party and with the aid of the lads at Shutter Booth what a day and night it was. Their great bunch of friends and family created an electric atmosphere and the party rocked on till the early hours. See evening clip here. Also see the spontaneous dancing here at the wedding breakfast, "Bridesmaids" style, priceless!
I had the very great pleasure of working with the photographer Dan Ackerman and from beginning to the end we had a blast capturing this special day. See here for a selection of his lovely Photographs from the day.
Filming at HMS Excellent was a first for me and what a fab setting to host a reception. The Brides father who was in the Navy and had been entertained at the mess on several occasions so knew it what a great place it was.
Please enjoy a snapshot of the lovely Claire and Chris's day and as videographers in Southampton, Hampshire I love the opportunity to re-tell the story of a wedding day, each film I make is very unique to the couple. Please email me to find out more information about how I work.
