The Couple

Picture this, over months, actually maybe years, these two names kept popping up ‘liking’ all our films on Facebook and Instagram. I was like who are these people Hannah Appleby (HBA Photography)? They’re one of our couples getting married at The West Mill.

So there I was minding my own business at The GIANT Wedding Show – Osmaston Park and this bride rocks up stating she’d been following me for a while…Laura is that you…it was! Laura and her mum came to chat to me at the wedding show to see what all the fuss was about. After a good chat I knew we clicked really well and they wanted to book us and keep it as a surprise from Scott. Fast forward some months and on the HBA pre-shoot Ben Appleby let slip we were gonna be there (DOH) and Laura had to come clean…she was gonna have to anyways with all the wedding planning, it’s all good.

Fast forward to January 2020 and we’re there filming one of our favourite weddings ever!

Our stand out moments from the film include the portrait shots of the couple, I think HBA’s pre-shoot had something to do with this but my god did they know how to work it! The speeches were all incredible, hilarious and emotional..maybe not Scott’s but he showed us his emotions when Laura walked down the West Mill’s cobbled aisle. We love the dancing shots (big up The Distractions Band Ltd for setting it off) and the sparkler shots worked out amazingly too.

We had been following Geoff for sometime on Facebook... he clocked that we were stalking him too! ? Anyway... after meeting face to face we knew he was the man to capture our big day! We LOVE our video and can't recommend OWV enough... it has been so nice to sit and watch the day back and see moments that we completely missed as the bride and groom! Thank you Geoff and Connor... you were a dream to have around on our day and worked so well alongside HBA Photography... can we do it all over again?! ? #dreamteam

Laura and Scottit has been so nice to sit and watch the day back and see moments that we completely missed as the bride and groom!
