We first met Catherine & Sam back in November 2011 when we were filming Lee & Lucy’s wedding at the lovely country manor, Shottle Hall near Belper where Sam happened to be an usher. Having watched Lee & Lucy’s wedding film, Catherine booked us to film her wedding as well. We were delighted to be her chosen videographers. Plus it was a first for us to film at the Brewery Tap within the National Brewery Museum situated in Burton-Upon-Trent, Staffordshire.
Filming commenced with the bridal preparations at nearby Mercure Newton Park Hotel in Newton Solney. The sun was shining and there was ample opportunity for lots of outdoor shots throughout the day. Catherine wore a stunning ivory aline dress designed by Justin Alexander which she had purchased from Alison Evans bridal wear in Church Gresley! Alison, gives a fantastic all round service to brides to be and I cannot recommend her enough. Catherine looked beautiful. As for the groomsmen, they wore dark grey traditional tails with pink rose buttonholes, each looking very smart indeed.
An emotional and lovely wedding ceremony, photos in the sunshine 🙂 it was every bit perfect for such a lovely couple. The National Brewery Centre (still often referred to as the old Bass Museum) is certainly a unique wedding venue with lots of quirkiness for those that desire less traditional photo opportunities. Brides get the opportunity to arrive by horse drawn carriage by the museum’s resident Shire horse plus guests can also get a tour of the museum grounds by carriage after the ceremony. I really hope we get to film here again in the future!
