Sean & Kate’s Tortworth Court wedding

Tortworth-Court-WeddingWe had been looking forward to this Tortworth court wedding all year as Sean & Kate are among our closest friends. We had agreed to capture the day in film and also add in some marryoke for good measure. The wedding took place at Tortworth court four pillars hotel in South Gloucestershire on the 20th of December 2014. The weather was gorgeous and so of course were the Bride & Groom. Kate had sent us a moodboard of film styles she wanted to emulate in their film. It was obvious from the start that a handheld choppy vintage inspired look was in order which is a style we are fond of ourselves so it was a real pleasure to get creative both shooting and editing their day.HDWedding-Film-Bristol-Still-1Wedding-placeholdersAt Apricot Tree we try to use music by unsigned artists where we can. This helps with copyright issues and also helps promote singer songwriters the world over. The track used on this film "Found a Heart" by Emily Hearn not only matched the feel of the day but the lyrics were perfect. Knowing their relationship, this could of been written for them. We only undertake a limited number of "Marryoke" films a year however when Sean & Kate asked if it would be possible to film the cast of the day singing along to the Kinks, how could we refuse. HDMarryokeWe had a great time at Sean & Kate's wedding. It was a beautiful event including many handmade and inspired touches. Tortworth court were friendly and helpful and it was a pleasure to spend the day with two great families. The photographs included in this blog post are video stills from the footage we recorded. The photographer on the day was the great Maria Farrelly who was a pleasure to work with and has produced some beautiful images of this beautiful day. Copies of the above films plus the main feature length edit including full coverage of the Bridal preparation, guests, ceremony, speeches, dances and lots of other moments including some very funny marryoke outakes will be delivered to Sean & Kate in the next few weeks.
